Below is the list of the directors, their schools, and the classification they will be competing under. They have all done amazing work! This list is in alphabetical order and not in order of the interviews.

This is the annual Wrestlemania episode that Jay Thomas and myself record each year for the 5s of fans that listen. Let us know if you are a closeted wrestling fan or even if you are an out of the closet wrestling fan. We are here for you (and want more friends).

I had a lot of fun getting to hear the stories that Rachel told. She is full of so many amazing memories and some wonderful knowledge. Please enjoy.

Sidebar: the audio sucks during part of this episode because Xfinity sucks.

Josh and I are two peas in a pod because we are super athletes that love theatre. Well, he's an athlete and I like watching sports.

It is not often that I have middle school theatre teachers on the pod but when I do, I make sure they are the BEST middle school theatre teachers in the world! Enjoy listening to the smartest educator I know, Megan Wallace.

My apologies for the long intro but the anticipation is worth it! Waldron Archer is a gift sent from the gods. Also, my apologies for so many "uhs" and "uhms." I never took speech and debate.

Quite a few people have said that I have to interview Mr. Castleberry, so I listened (to Billy Dragoo when he told me). Enjoy this week's chat with another legend in Texas theatre education.

Finally, episode 100!!! Finally, Billy Dragoo!!! This was a great chat with a man that has a heart the size of Texas. I say this a lot, but this is true, I could have easily made this a 3 or 4 hour chat.

Thank you to everyone who has supported this podcast through 100 episodes. Please let me know how I can make it better or who you would want to hear. I am a theatre guy, I can take the feedback and suggestions.

This is another one of those unique episodes of Minor Wisdom. Enjoy listening to the perspective of some "theatre widows" or spouses of theatre educators.
