Cringe-worthy catastrophes, face-flushing fails and sweaty-palmed moments of misinterpretation. This month's issue wildly celebrates the awkwardness of the human existence.

Featuring tales of the uncomfortable from Kathryn Burnett, Gina Dellabarca and Chye-Ling Huang.

Our guest host this month is Alice Snedden. She's a comedian and improviser from Auckland. You might know her as a member of The Basement's hit weekly improv show Snort or from her work as a writer on TV3’s Funny Girls and Jono & Ben.

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.
