Got Your Back podcast recently interviewed one of Austin’s most experienced and most beloved improv instructors, Dave Buckman.
In this episode we discussed Dave’s time spent training in Chicago at IO and Second City, and how that ultimately led to his taking a job at Boom Chicago in Amsterdam.
We also talked about some of the patterns he has come to notice while teaching his popular personaldiagnostic workshopshere in Austin.
Dave was kind enough to engage us in a segment we called “Back to Neutral” where he talks about a personal improv peeve, and then follows that up by talking about something he loves about improv.
Finally, we played another round of everyone’s favorite guessing game “Lifetime Original Movie, Young Adult Novel, or Pornographic Film” so that Dave could compete indirectly with his lovely wife, and recent guest of the show,Rachel Madorsky.
In the latest episode of Got Your Back podcast, Rachel Madorsky stopped by the studio for an interview.
Rachel is an original ColdTowne faculty member who has long been supremely supportive force in the community.
In addition to teaching and performing Rachel works as a licensed psychotherapist, and was kind enough to engage in a conversation about a number of topics including the intersections between therapy and improv.
In the second part of the episode the conversation went deep into a discussion about the importance of vulnerability in improv in order to break down and better understand what can sometimes be a scary and misunderstood topic for improvisers.
Finally, the show ends with a round of a new guessing game called “Lifetime Original Movie, Young Adult Novel, or Porno Film?”.
