Got Your Back podcast recently put on a live show where 3 of the great minds from the Austin improv community came to speak at length on topics of their choosing.
This first show featured the following speeches:
– “You Suck Forever: Thoughts on Improv Nihilism” by Bryan Lubu Roberts
– “Finding, Feeding, and Chasing Inspiration” by Roy Janik
– and “Who Arted?” by John Ratliff
Each of the speeches I personally found to be inspiring in their own unique way, and I really can’t thank the speakers enough for taking the time to create such thoughtful content.
The night was rounded out with a couple of original songs played live by Justin Soileau.
Please enjoy this audio from the show that you can either download here, find on itunes, or stream the episode below.
Also consider coming out to the next Comedy Nerd-Out on the first Sunday of the month at 7pm at ColdTowne Theater.
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?”.
