It's exciting to interview directors and Texas theatre educators but it is even more exciting to interview talented and successful products of Texas theatre education. Get to know a little bit about Greg Graham and his 2+ decades of success on the Broadway stage and beyond!

It only took more than a year to convince her, but I finally interviewed my own wife! She is the best middle school theatre teacher in the world and she was one of the best high school theatre teachers ever as well! (She now owes me $20.)

This is a "must-listen!" If you need technical theatre assistance or simply want to be a better technical theatre educator/director, get to know Kristi! Make sure you are on the Technical Theatre Educators page on Facebook and make sure you check out all of the websites that she mentions in this interview. 

Please enjoy one of the more informative interviews I have had the pleasure of conducting.

I thought that it just makes sense to interview the director from my last two interviews, Mrs. Terry Ismert. I apologize for my microphone. I am a lighting guy.

Matt Peters has been killing it with virtual masterclass/Q&A sessions with industry professionals put together for his students. Everyone is welcome to join via www.twhstheater.com. You can find the schedule there. He also kills it as a great guy, director, Aggie, and closeted fan of OU.

Kelly is one of the least funny and boring people that I know. I dare you to take a listen and find any moments that might make you laugh. He practically just breaths into the mic. Enjoy this awesome interview.

I taught with Pam Wilson for two years over ten years ago. Pam is an amazing educator and a wealth of knowledge, especially in the world of curriculum. In this time of uncertainty, I hope you enjoy so Minor Wisdom normalcy.

This is obviously an annual preview show, with Jay Thomas. If you though this podcast was niche before, now it is serving Texas theatre teachers that love wrestling. Enjoy.

This is an ever-changing world (has anyone said that recently?)!!! Please enjoy a casual conversation I had with Mandi Tapia regarding where we are and where we think we are headed. I hope that this helps bring some normalcy to your new life.

Kathy and I sat down right before districts began closing for Covid-19. This is a very heartfelt and passionate interview that could have easily lasted much longer.

Shout out to Tress Kurzym for giving me the idea to get someone on the pod that specializes in online curriculum. There are a ton of links out there to help educators get through the next few weeks when we go to educating our students online while the Coronavirus does its thing. Feel free to comment with more ideas and links on for this pod and through the Facebook group as well.
