I love Melissa’s genuine, open conversations that transcend her and her colleagues artistry and allow listeners to enjoy culturally relevant discussion and views.

Look forward to it every week!

This podcast goes beyond chats about the theatre biz by approaching inequities in, and access to, the arts with honesty and humor. Thank you, Melissa (and Martina!), for continuing the conversation! Can’t wait until next season!
