Full disclosure: I recorded this episode with Anne Morgan a year ago. The episode is still awesome, but add 1 year to everything she says regarding timelines: She's now been at the American Shakespeare Center for a little over two years instead of a little over one, they're now actually producing plays from the Shakespeare's New Contemporaries program instead of being about to produce plays, Mary Baldwin University went co-ed a couple-three years ago instead of a year or two ago, we're all one year sadder and wiser, etc.
We talked about my pitches for the new state song of Virginia, and, I gotta be honest, the initial delay in production was that I spent waaaaaay too much time arranging the Spotify list with all our (my) submissions for a new state song. That content's just for The Context Patreon subscribers. I would share it with all of you, but my subscribers have been so patient while I dicked them over for the last year, and they really deserve something that's just their own.
This season has a ton of lovely episodes coming your way, most of which were also recorded 4.5 billion years ago, but which still contain eternal truths from your favorite innovators of dramaturgy. Where the hell have I been the last year? Well, that's a mini-episode of it's own. It involves changing my meds a bunch of times and ending up in Seattle.
Thanks for sticking around! I think it will be worth your while.Support The Context
