TALKBACK Season 2 Episode 1 is now available to download! This new season explores the idea of ACCESS, and the first episode focuses on the concept of the PIPELINE. In this episode, host Christine Toy Johnson sits down with writers and advocates Georgia Stitt (Snow Child, Samantha Spade, Ace Detective, Founder of Maestra) and Lloyd Suh (The Chinese Lady, Charles Francis Chan Jr.’s Exotic Oriental Murder Mystery) to discuss the problems of the pipeline, who is granted access to jobs in the industry, and more. Learn why the pipeline is perpetuated, whose stories are being told, and how musicians, composers, and playwrights can work to create a more welcoming space for all.
This episode was produced by Sarah Storm, Amy VonMacek and Christine Toy Johnson and mixed by Robare Pruyn, with theme music composed by Andrea Daly. Special thanks to Tina Fallon, Tari Stratton, and the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee at the Dramatists Guild.
