    Phone & Text Banking

    Phone & Text Banking

    With 14 days left till the election, and Biden surpassing Trump in every poll, what do we have to fear? The exact same complacency that gave us the shocking result of 2016 and handed Donald Trump the keys to our country. So, with these last two weeks, we take you through the do's and don'ts of phone and text banking, one of the greatest tools in driving out voters. 
    The activism of theatre itself is nothing you don't already know, but the specific activism in the dramatization of real life events on stage is an extra powerful tool in changing hearts and minds that has been perfected by today's guest. Moisés Kaufman talks about the creation of his plays Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde and The Laramie Project, how LGBTQ history and legislation were shaped by the attention Laramie received and his musings on modern LGBTQ struggles and what the future holds.

    Down Ballot Races & Local Elections

    Down Ballot Races & Local Elections

    With a failed administration rotting from the head, the stink of Donald Trump has reached not only Republican members of the House and Senate up for reelection, but all the way down to the local GOP candidates and the elections that shape the communities you live in. Year after year, an increasing majority of Americans poll in favor of a future with forward Democratic and progressive leadership and ideals. 
     Marti Gould Cummings, candidate for NY Council-District 7 in 2021, breaks down the importance of down ballot races/local elections and how the results directly impact your life. Marti talks about their calling not only activism, but to run for public office and the importance of staying involved in your city and town's politics and government once election day comes and goes.

    Social Media Savviness

    Social Media Savviness

    Social Media is uniquely poised to be either the greatest contributor to the fall of our democracy or the tool that allows us to mobilize and save it. In this week's episode, we break down the "do's" and "don'ts" that allow for a more efficient use of social media instead of wasted hours screaming into an echo chamber. We also hear from actor/activist Brandon Victor Dixon on the importance of using one's prominence to fight for those who are underrepresented and at risk, and how he navigated his way through the insanity stirred up by his address to (then) Vice President Elect Pence on behalf of the cast and creatives of Hamilton.

Really Interesting!

I don’t follow many podcasts since my attention span is that of a kid at Dylan’s Candy Bar but this one has caught my attention. Ulloa keeps the dialogue fresh and simple to be accesible to anyone interested in current events. Adding guests from his theatre community gives this podcast an interesting twist and a look behind the curtain that we barely get to see. Interesting to see how politics and current events effect the theater world which eventually effect us when we attend.
Very indightful and thought provoking...I comment outloud to myself like I am there with them! Which is part of starting the conversation...
