Dionne Draper and Lisa Marie Simmons are both black, transracial adoptees and the hosts of 'DAWTA The Podcast'. Dionne Draper is the writer, actor and producer of 'DAWTA' a semi-autobiographical multi-media work that centres the experiences of Sarah a transracial adoptee. DAWTA a one woman musical, was the first live iteration (2019/20), then came DAWTA Digital an immersive online version (2021), and now DAWTA The Podcast has arrived (2023). Lisa is a multi-disciplinary storyteller born in the US, adopted by a white family, subsequently re-homed to a white adoptive mother and her Black husband, and raised in Boulder, Co. Lisa's work as a singer/songwriter, poet, and essayist uses intimate details of her life to speak to a larger narrative. DAWTA The Podcast centres on themes in Sarah’s transracial adoption, with special guests and a 'Therapists View'. Each episode covers complex, challenging and always heart-warming stories of the transracial adoptee experience, and the powerful path to self-actualisation. Zoom interviews will also be hosted on Dionne Draper's You Tube Channel.
