Hello lovely Back Fence PDX audience,

We are sad to report that we are canceling the March 21 and May 9 Russian Roulette shows due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

While all of our storytellers and the Back Fence PDX staff are well at this time, we are concerned about the financial loss this cancellation will represent  to The Old Church and The Oregon Food Bank. And we are concerned about all of us in the Portland community as we endure a time of increased social isolation, as we generally aim to be an antidote to disconnection and isolation.

We have begun releasing Tiny Gigantic virtual episodes on IG. You can follow the link in our IG bio to find them there and links to donate to Oregon Food Bank and The Old Church.

In the meantime, we love you, we miss you already, stay pumped, wash your hands, and reach out to your people. We hope that thanks to all of our collective care and caution, this pandemic slows dramatically and that we will, fingers crossed, see you all in July.

Please send any questions to, follow us on Facebook and Instagram, sign up for our newsletter, and check out our incredible archive of Back Fence PDX: RUSSIAN ROULETTE stories on YouTube to get your fix.

story, hosting + peformance services

Toastmasters and self-help have taken you as far as you can go. Let the Producers + Hosts of Back Fence PDX, B. Frayn Masters + Mindy Nettifee, take you where you need to go next.

Your ability to manifest your dreams and realize your purpose; to be and express your best self; and to not sweat and panic and dread your life so much along the way - that's what's on the line.

It's time to get real with real help, and we've got you. 

Free Delivery offers expert personal coaching from coaches you will actually look forward to spending time with. We also work with businesses and organizations, and offer sought-after custom workshops; impossibly good event emceeing; and internal research and intervention services for departments and teams who are stuck for mysterious (and some obvious) reasons.

We know a lot of coaching and workshops are a big waste of time. We've been there, and it doesn't have to be that way. Let us put our years of experience to work for you - we have expertise in personal and group psychology, creative writing and expressive arts, scripted and improvisational performance, and straight up comedy and good-times-production.
