Alyssa Duerksen – Following One’s Path Whether or Not We Want To


This interview is just gorgeous, we go all over the map of Alyssa’s life: including her jaunt on the ren fair circuit, her journey to becoming a dynamic body worker, and her music career. Alyssa is such a joy to listen to, I know you will enjoy this one!

We met in Alyssa’s lovely apartment for coffee and recording, above a little cafe in Trumansburg, NY. There are a couple places where a loud truck drives by but otherwise the audio is good.
