Tommy Peterson - Going Postal

Tommy Peterson - Going Postal

After losing his job at a small non-profit at the age of 60, Tommy Peterson eventually takes a job in which he reconnects with a customer that he had known for a long time.

Having lived in a teepee at the base of the 14,000 foot southern Rockies, Tommy Petersen moved to Missoula and the northern Rockies 25 years ago to continue mountain life, getting his graduate degree in Environmental Studies at UM. He is the editor of the conservation anthology, A Road Runs Through It with a Foreword by Annie Proulx, and on writing breaks plays soccer with the old boys at the Peas Farm field.

This episode of Tell Us Something was recorded in front of a live audience on September 20, 2016, at The Wilma in Missoula, MT. 11 storytellers shared their story. The theme was "Fork in the Road”.

Today’s podcast comes to us from Tommy Peterson and is titled “Going Postal”. Thank you for listening.
