Ep94 – BLACK LIVES MATTER

Hi everyone, over the last year and a half, I have released at least one episode of The Theatre Podcast every single week without fail. Today, I have decided to break this tradition. I am purposely postponing the next episode in order to release this statement.

Black Lives Matter. Please know that I see you, I hear you, I stand with you, and I recognize that the current movement is a response to hundreds of years of systematic racism having permeated our culture.

I realize that it is no longer enough to be against racism as we all must strive to be anti-racist, and actively take steps to stop racist behavior in a non-violent way. 

Every journey begins with a first step and for many of us, now is the time. Available below are links to places where you can lend your support. I have done the same. Allow those who are doing their best to be supportive to continue to grow and learn. Remember, fighting your ally only strengthens your enemy. 

In a few days I will continue to release my episodes as normal, as I feel that art can be used as a tool to heal, and must continue to be created. 

Everyone please stay safe and care for one another.
