MASTERS OF THE OBVIOUS
"There is nothing so deceptive as an obvious fact"  
                                                      -- Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Masters of the Obvious is Marcia's "Audio Collage" series. 

For each episode, two or more  "Guest Masters" are encouraged to talk spontaneously about common, everyday topics such as "Eggs," "Pockets," "Pranks" or "The Universe." Marcia then selects the most intriguing offerings from each of the guests and edits them together to create a multi-voiced "meditation on a theme" audio collage to delight the listener.
