So I've done three nytheatrecasts over the past few months, with Adam Szymkowicz, James Comtois and Mac Rogers. While all three talked a bit about the shows that they were working on, I've endeavored to make sure we discussed subjects related to the work, and had conversations that were, in the limited time, a bit larger in scope that just the plugging of a show.
I'm hoping to do these for a while, and talk to as many writers as I'm able. I've seen that since we did the first one, there have been quite a few other Playwrights in Conversation chats and they're all a lot of fun, and extremely varied in tone.
I'm curious how these are striking people. Love to get some feedback.
Have you listened to them?
What prompted you to hear them (do you subscribe on iTunes? Was it this blog? Did I interview a friend?)
What works and what doesn't?
Any subjects that we brought up that struck a chord with you?
Do you generally listen to the nytheatrecast? Why or why not?
