ZEALOUS HELLIONS, continues December 17 at 7PM in a conversation between two writers: Aditi Brennan Kapil and Andrew Hinderaker. Aditi spent 25 years at Mixed Blood as actor, writer, director, and administrator while Andrew penned Mixed Blood’s most ambitious piece at the time – 2014’s COLOSSAL, a full contact play with four quarters, a football team, dance company, and drum line.

Andrew Hinderaker went on to produce the Netflix series Away and brought in Aditi as a staff writer. As well as discussing their respective careers, they will discuss remote writing rooms to complete a television series during COVID shelter times and life in the American theater.


Tony Award winning director Kenny Leon joined us on September 10th for a conversation with Jamil Jude, the Artistic Director of Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company of Atlanta. Together they spoke about Kenny’s illustrious career, race in American theatre, and why they are radically optimistic about the future of our field.


One week before the election, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and Emma Greenman (a voting rights attorney and candidate for MN House Seat 63-B) joined us for a conversation all about voting. They addressed misinformation and misconceptions that are being spread, and spoke passionately about how each of us can get involved in helping to restore our democracy whether we’re a voting rights attorney or not.
