004 Your Life Matters

1,252 black people have been shot and killed by police since January 1st, 2015 (NPR and The Washington Post). <br>

I want you to use these 1,252 seconds to educate yourself and contribute. Look at this document for petitions, places to donate, bail funds, and books to read. There is also a specific section of essential reading for theatre-makers that I encourage you to check out. <br>

Griffin Matthews, writer, composer, and lyricist of Witness Uganda (or Invisible Thread) speaks up about why Broadway is racist here. <br>

And last, but not least; use this time to be aware of who is creating the content you are consuming. Maybe begin listening to a podcast with a creator of color, or embark reading a play by a black playwright. America is based on capitalism; we create the world we live in through what we choose to consume.

003 Living Authentically w/Jen Katzer

Today I am back for part 2 of my conversation with Jen Katzer! If you have not listened to the first part yet, be sure you hop back to the last episode to see it. In this episode, we talk about the implications COVID-19 has had in the Broadway industry and performers speaking up about sickness. Jen shares more of her work as a chronic illness advocate, and shares with us how to live authentically. We also dare you to ask someone in your life about how they genuinely feel and spark a conversation.  <br> <br>

002 Finding A Balance w/Jen Katzer

Today I invited and had a talk with my amazing friend Jen Katzer! We discuss everything from a day in the life of a training musical theatre actress in New York City to Unifieds and college auditions. We talked about transitioning to online acting classes and parental relationships both in the US and Norway. If you are a theatre college student or interested in the future of auditioning for theatre, I would highly recommend listening! Part 2 of this conversation will be released next Friday.  <br> <br>

001 We Need Conversations w/Carli Sullivan

Today I jump on the phone with Carli Sullivan, one of my amazing friends who also happens to be an actress and a recent graduate from SCAD! We talk about everything from missing hugging other people to moving on from our past. We discuss how creative freelancers financially survive in big cities such as New York, how to allow yourself to feel your emotions, and why to create content you believe in. If you want an inspirational pick-me-up in quarantine, I would highly recommend listening to this episode. <be>
