    S3 Ep5 - Stories for the Defence (Matt Cleaver, Public Defender, NY)

    S3 Ep5 - Stories for the Defence (Matt Cleaver, Public Defender, NY)

    What could be more theatrical than stories told in a courtroom? Especially those told to represent individuals who cannot afford adequate defense when accused of a crime?
    In this episode we chat with Matt Cleaver, Staff Attorney with Brooklyn Defender Services, a passionate public defender and a human rights activist. Trained in theater, experienced in arts administration and theater management, Matt pivoted to a career in law, to make a difference in lives of those disadvantaged in society. He brings a unique perspective to his role, representing and advocating for clients whose stories are often silenced by the nature of legal system. In our chat Matt shares anecdotes of using story to engage prosecutorial adversaries as collaborators, the need for specificity to amplify the stories of his clients, and the significance of language we use that can subtly impact the outcome of any defense.

    S3 Ep4 - Stories of Consultation and Interpretation (Tierney Sutton)

    S3 Ep4 - Stories of Consultation and Interpretation (Tierney Sutton)

    In this episode we couldn’t be prouder to chat with jazz vocalist Tierney Sutton.
    A nine-time Grammy nominated artist, with an international performing career, Tierney is known for unique and inventive arrangements of jazz standards and other musical genres, a 20-year relationship with her band, and deft retellings of songs’ stories that we thought we knew. She is now performing own compositions in one of her most recent collaborations (or “consultations” as she explains on the podcast) with the San Gabriel 7 in the album and music video Good People.  
    You can learn about all things Tierney, find a calendar of where she is performing, and links to listen to recordings her music and her on YouTube pages listed on her site: https://tierneysutton.com/
    If you don’t know her work there are so many stand outs we would recommend listening to, including albums featuring songs from artists as diverse as Joni Mitchell and Sting, and songs we know from movies. (She has great stories about the band working with Clint Eastwood to creating the soundtrack to the movie “Sully”.)
