First Time: First City - Abby Muldoon

abby muldoonAbby Muldoon is from the sleepy beach town of Melbourne, FL and is never going back! After earning her psychology degree at Florida State University in 2012, she moved to Chicago, IL where she earned her master's degree in women and gender studies making her a Professional Feminist Buzzkill. Abby has performed improv, sketch, and stand-up all around Chicago including Second City, Stage 773, and the Playground Theater. Her sketch group, Needless Productions, can be found performing at Second City and various festivals year round. During the day, she is a behavioral health researcher focusing on LGBTQ/queer young people, HIV prevention, and sexual health. In her free time, Abby and her husband enjoy writing songs about their pit-bull who is a very good boy.

The First Time is CHIRP Radio’s Live Lit and Music series. It pairs a reader’s personal story about a specific "first time" -- a different "first" for each show -- with a song performance. This unique structure allows the story to resonate with audience members as they experience the accompanying song covered by The First Time Four. The band takes special care to perform unexpected song arrangements, so it is hard to tell which the audience enjoys more: the story or the song.

The First Time is produced and directed by Julie Mueller with Assistant Producer Bobby Evers and Host Jenn Sodini. Podcast produced and recorded by Jenn Rourke. Engineering by Tony Baker.
