I have been the summer intern for Niki Dakota on Excursions for the past three or so months. One of my responsibilities is to post here when we have live guests on the show, be it an interview, performance, or a little of both. Welp, I have run into a small predicament.</p><p>I was the live guest. This may read a bit awkwardly.</p> Wed, 14 Aug 2013 17:59:18 +0000 Niki Dakota & Sam Bodary 37739 at http://wyso.org Sam Bodary Says Goodbye to Excursions (That's Me!)
