Rose Bonczek and Roger Manix join us in episode 070 of the SHIPS podcast! In this episode, we discuss how our phones are robbing us of discomfort and how important it is for us to go out of our comfort zones. We talk about what the collaborative gene is, how play teaches us how to be human, and how theatre makes us feel less alone, among many other incredibly important topics of conversation.
