In March 2017, Joel read a book while on vacation. This book caused a chain reaction which led to an email to enroll in an Improv course, which led to missing Monday night amateur slo-pitch. This ultimately led to an internal struggle to justify spending two hours in a damp basement playing with a bunch of strangers over spending the same amount of time playing a game he loves, with long-time friends, above ground. As a result of this cognitive dissonance, Joel jumped in with both feet, turned those strangers into friends and started taking a vitamin D supplement. Want to know the title of that book? Find Joel after a show and ask him.
