This week on the podcast, I sit down with Melody Rice to talk about the story she shared live on stage at The Covellite Theater in Butte, America
The theme that night was “Work”.
We also talk about inequality in the workforce, life in Butte, Montana, and what things were like in regards to COVID in Butte at that time.
It was a 60-degree-below-zero cold snap in Butte that convinced Melody Rice’s Mom to pack up her 3-year-old daughter and head to the warm shores of southern CA. Most summers Melody returned to Montana to fish, camp, and help her granddad build stuff, which created a special place in her heart for crabby old guys. She worked as a barber for 18 years until a shoulder injury required her to find a new profession. Melody is now a licensed clinical professional counselor and art therapist in private practice in Butte.
