    Ep5 - Sarah Meahl: surviving swinging & the joy of laughter

    Ep5 - Sarah Meahl: surviving swinging & the joy of laughter

    Sarah Meahl is a person who hates defining herself in a bio because she is impossibly complex. She swam out of the swamplands of Florida, and has taken on odd jobs galore (from Stall mucking to nude modeling) to get to New York City and make dreams happen. Sarah has danced her way through the regions of America, the silver screen, and has spent the past 4 years performing on and off Broadway. She teaches for 14 Broadway Dance companies based out of New York City, and dreams of one day opening her own bed and breakfast.
    Until then, Sarah enjoys reading lengthy historical novels, cooking, and being SCARED. She also really likes making people laugh (at or with her). She’s trying improve lives all the ways she knows how and loves being around people that inspire her to make the world better.

This podcast is exquisite. So great but not campy. It’s a musical theater podcast that is actually wildly interesting to listen to, even if you’re in the business. Love it so much.

I’M OBSESSED!!!

This is starting to be my new favorite podcast!! After being in the industry it’s so relatable and comforting to hear these conversations- these topics need to be talked about and I wouldn’t want it discussed by anyone else besides Brittany Bigelow! I could listen to her all day! Excited to see this take off!!

Such an easy listen

Genuine, Real and Interesting. What more could you ask for in a podcast? Time moves quickly as topics are introduced and seamlessly dart back and forth until you realize—Wow, the show is already over. I can’t wait for future episodes.
