Tina Satter
Playwright, director, and filmmaker, Tina Satter, joins me on the podcast today to talk about her incredible career and her amazing broadway show that is currently on Broadway until November 27! Here’s Tina’s bio: Tina Satter is a playwright, director, and filmmaker based in New York City and Vermont. She received a 2020 Special Citation Obie Award for conceiving and directing her play IS THIS A ROOM which had its Off-Broadway premiere at the Vineyard Theatre in fall 2019; its sold-out run was followed by an encore production in winter 2020 and a groundbreaking engagement on Broadway in fall 2021. The play originally premiered at The Kitchen in New York City in January 2019. Tina is Artistic Director of the critically acclaimed theater company Half Straddle and a recipient of a 2020 Guggenheim Fellowship in Playwriting, 2019 Pew Fellowship, 2016 Foundation for Contemporary Arts Award, and a 2014 Doris Duke Artist Impact Award. With Half Straddle, she has written and directed 10 full-length plays, smaller performance pieces, and videos, and re-imagined them for a range of spaces at numerous theaters and festivals in the U.S. and internationally. She has taught writing and directing at Brooklyn College MFA Playwriting, Hunter College MFA Playwriting, Sarah Lawrence College, and University of Michigan, in addition to leading workshops and guest teaching at a range of other colleges and universities. Tina attended Mac Wellman’s graduate playwriting program at Brooklyn College and received an M.A. from Reed College and a B.A. from Bowdoin College. She grew up in Hopkinton, N.H.

Joanne Molinaro
Joanne Molinaro—aka The Korean Vegan—is on the podcast this week! Joanne is a marathon runner, a best-selling author, a trial lawyer (until last month, anyway), and the creator of The Korean Vegan! From Joanne’s website: "With over 3.5 million fans spread across her social media platforms, New York Times best-selling author Joanne Molinaro has appeared on The Food Network, CBS Saturday Morning, ABC's Live with Kelly and Ryan, and The Rich Roll Podcast. She's been featured in the Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, The Atlantic, NPR, and CNN.” Why do people flock to Joanne’s content? Because she blends the making of gorgeous, amazing food with beautiful storytelling. I told her during our chat that a food video has never made me cry before…until her content came around. During our chat, we talk about complicated family histories, why and how she became vegan, activism vs. action, and so much more. You’re in for a treat! Follow Joanne on TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Buy her NYT best selling cookbook!
