#PoppaPank

Philly-based, multi-hyphenated, and award-winning actors Jaylene Clark Owens and Justin Jain take on all things Arts & Culture in this joy-forward and ever hilarious variety podcast. From current events, to childhood memories, #PoppaPank centers and uplifts BIPOC voices in the performing and visual arts. Their occasional Pop-in with #PoppaPank segments feature interviews with various industry professionals from Broadway & Hollywood stars to iconic Regional Theatre designers & technicians. Jaylene is a powerful Black spoken word poet and playwright. Justin is a fierce Filipino director and deviser. These dear friends are teachers and professional actors in the HotHouse Company at The Wilma Theatre in Philadelphia, not to mention artistic directors of their own companies. Every episode centers on a different theme, but all roads point back to the Arts and bringing a pop of pink into a world that can be very grey. Whether they’re trying to do a freestyle rap, or getting artistic advice from a guest, these two are gonna have a good time! Grab your Poppa Drank and get ready for some shenanigans as Jaylene and Justin get tickled pank (pink) on every episode of #PoppaPank!
