No guest this week, new episode next Friday! In the meantime, Leah shares a few thought provoking pieces to get your Friday started: a quote from President Obama and a speech by performance artist Taylor Mac.
Dancer Jeff Sykes discusses the need for mutual respect in the world of freelance dance, his approach to auditions as two-way conversations, and the physical practices that help keep him away from the dark side.
Actor Brendan Spieth talks about how he deals with the dark side and charting his own path, spanning music, theatre, food, and dance. He shares one of his songs and its origin. Brendan is also responsible for The Compass intro and outro music.
A sneak peak at the upcoming episode featuring Brendan Spieth, hear two of his original songs and how one of them came to be. Keep an eye out for Brendan's episode of The Compass later this week!
