    Maisie Richardson-Sellers

    We have another great guest for you! She's studied archaeology and anthropology, moved from the UK to LA, been a superhero, directed a short film, created an inclusive production company, and is now directing on Legends of Tomorrow - the DC Comics series which she starred in - all before the age of 30! 


    Hear Maisie Richardson-Sellers talk about her journey from being inspired by her parents' political activism, the empowerment of the group in protests, to the importance of strong female role models and seeing people from marginalised communities represented on screen, to her morning ritual that has become a tiny revolution for being creative with a clear mind.

Very interesting look behind the comedy

In a similar vein to Stuart Goldsmith's Com Com Pod, Tiny Revolutions is great if you're inerested in finding out more about what's behind the comedy, specifically in this case if it can help bring about social change. If you're a comedy fan it's well worth your time.
