In this epsiode, Joe and Jess take on philanthropy. Specifically, they talk about large donations to small arts organizations and wonder why we rely on wealthy individuals, rather than our government, for support. One upside of this relationship is often the creation of brand new mediums for artists to play with and make new works that shape the future of theatre and entertainment.

How do you define theatre and does it matter? Jess and Joe get into the ongoing debate of how we are using the designation of theatre as the digital world expands.

And stick around until the end to hear their take on ASL interpreters and how they get (or more likely, do not get) credit for translation of music.
