009 PRACTICES OF ENFREAKMENT
A story of autonomous abnormality.
Mat Fraser is a performance artist who currently stars on the FX television show American Horror Story: Freak Show. Born with phocomelia, a condition that results in malformation of the limbs, Fraser embraces his disability through activism, art, and the carnie-sideshow experience. In this episode, Fraser tells the stories of his condition, his relationship with Coney Island, and how he entered show business with a physical deformity.
Everything is Stories
EVERYTHING IS STORIES
An ongoing audio survey of individuals who have experienced transcendence and/or power of the will. No story will be considered too troubled, no atmosphere too strange.
Needed: tales from the underground, the underdog, the outlaw, and the outcast. Genuine characters of all kinds welcome.
Everything is Stories explores unconventional narratives of the past and present to preserve the eccentric, the authentic, and the personal.
Produced by Garrett Crowe, Mike Martinez, and Tyler Wray.
