Sarah Fulmer  ,  Host & Producer  I have always loved storytellers. I love the moment a story unfurls like a sail, the way the audience leans in, the music of clapping and laughter, the way people look when they've been triumphant and walk off stage into a room that loves them. It is a great honor to make a room laugh. It's a gift to behold the alchemy of stranger to friend. It's kind of refreshing to be so unapologetically dorky and excited about it.

  Meag Horn,  Producer & Promotional Director  Meag is a moderately impulsive travel addict that always manages to find her way back to Columbus in one way or another. Her story inspirations usually come from poorly-executed travel adventures, accidentally inappropriate attempts at language learning and an unwaveringly demonstrative approach to life. Also, cats. She has been a part of Speak Easy since 2012 and considered it her second home the minute she first stepped on the stage.   (Image Credit: Andy Woodmansee)
