He’s intelligent and articulate, and he approaches his show with the expertise of a PhD and the artistry of a showman.

Show Notes:Guest Erin Hayes gives a fabulous introduction to the paper art of quilling and shares how starting an art in quarantine has led her to a new talent and business.Even though Erin still fights against feelings of Imposter Syndrome, she works on her art every day. She was interested in starting quilling almost twenty years ago, but it wasn’t until she got quarantined and picked up a simple little tool that she began her beautiful paper art. Erin began quilling when the pandemic forced her into quarantine and she missed camping in Utah’s beautiful red rock wilderness. Just a few months later and Erin is busy fulfilling commissions.You can help more people find “In the Telling” by leaving a review on Facebook, Apple podcasts or any other podcast delivery platform. Find out more about “In the Telling” at lizzylizzyliz.comSubscribe to the Liz Christensen channel on YouTube for bonus content.  Theme music by Gordon VetasThanks for listeningSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/LizChristensen)

Actress Nadia Sine met with me over Zoom in the Stay-at-home social distancing of 2020 to talk with me about being a black actress in the predominantly white theatre industry. I saw her performance as Juliet in Sonder Immersive’s production of “Through Yonder Window,” and was captivated by the production and her performance. What Nadia and I sat down to discuss primarily was a topic that has recently risen to the top of the theatre industry conversation--the racism encountered by performers of color in theatre. There are fantastic resources and discussions on this topic in lots of corners of the public conversation, some of my favorites are listed below in the show notes. But like everything I’m interested in, I really wanted to have this conversation, one-on-one to help me process as I look at what I can do and should do and will do about institutional racism in my own theatre community.Show Notes:Cultivating Change: Diversity and Inclusion in Utah Theatre at OPPADeena And Javen at the Regent Street!
