This week, the Zoon Garden Team has been busy preparing for its socially distant summer promotion tour. The tour is for Jordan O’Donnell’s breakout political satire, Zoon Garden: The Decline of a Nation, and it launches on June 27th from Richmond, Virginia, with its first stop in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Each member of the team has prepared for this journey, albeit in different ways. The majority of the team has now assembled at a farm in Virginia, where many of the team members are meeting each other in person for the very first time.
“For the past couple of days we’ve been moving in, settling in, and feeling out the vibe of the group,” says Leanne Weaver, the team’s website manager.
Jake Harris, O’Donnell’s tour manager, has spent most of his preparation time sorting through the tour’s procedure. “I’m on the mechanical frontlines making sure that all the logistics of the bus are working and the bus and the trailers themselves will run,” he says.
O’Donnell himself has been busy with media appearances – in the last month, he has been featured on ESPN with Paul VanWagoner, the Sons of Saturday Podcast, the Red Wave Podcast, and is scheduled to interview with Jeffrey Besecker for the Light Inside Podcast. He’s also been featured on the Travel Food People blog, which is an exceptional resource for travelers across the world. (Seriously, if you like to travel, check this blog out.)
As the team continues preparations, the group’s synergy remains a priority. Tribe Supply’s Media Marketing Specialist, Shannon Nonora, says that she’s enjoying getting to know the rest of the team for “more than just their bios on the website.”
They’ll be coming your way soon – we can’t wait to meet in you in Zoon Garden.
