BLAISE ALLYSEN KEARSLEY is a writer and storyteller, as well as the creator, producer, and host of the How I Learned series, and she also does some other stuff, too.

Her writing has been published in The Nervous Breakdown, Vice Magazine, a couple of anthologies, and several other places a long time ago that are perhaps not worth mentioning by name.
