Video: Telling ‘Shanghai Lunch’

I found out later that Spicy Jew’s Ear was a type of mushroomy fungus, but it still didn’t sound like something that I wanted to eat.

Here’s the video from my telling “Shanghai Lunch” at Tell It On Tuesday at The Marsh in Berkeley on January 28th. Storytelling in the oral tradition. No notes, no text.

Closed captions available. Just click on CC near the bottom of the player.

Thanks to Susan Zarchy for the video and to Daniel Zarchy and Ben Tucker for the photos.
