I to tatau tirohanga whakarunga, kotahi noa iho te marama ka kitea, ne?
We all look up at the same moon, don’t we? 

Just in time for June and the Matariki Festival, the Watercooler returns to tell even more astounding stories. This month’s issue features an eclectic group of storytellers, from all kinds of cultures, who have each come to call Aotearoa home. There’ll be tales of culture shock, identity crisis, and souls that refuse to settle in just one place as Alyssa Medel, Natasha Lay and Carlos Carvajal Garcia tell us all about what belonging looks like to them.

Issue #47 is hosted by the ever-hilarious Donna Brookbanks, one of the pioneers of hit weekly improv show Snort, comedian, and actor. You might also know her from her work on Funny Girls, Jono and Ben and Shortland Street.

Inspired by many well-known storytelling events and podcasts held worldwide (The Moth, This American Life), The Watercooler is a platform for people from all walks to tell stories both true and imagined. Storytellers are given a simple brief to share a story inspired by the month’s theme, whether based on real-life experiences or entirely fictional.
