JOY! That’s the theme of this week’s podcast. Adam Ferguson and I are working on an sound recording assignment for class, and I loved his idea of asking strangers the question “What brings you joy?” On today’s episode of TBD With LDT, I recount some of the answers we got, as well as some of Adam and I’s reflections — and I list some of the things that bring ME joy…..like Rhea Butcher and Cameron Esposito’s “Put Your Hands Together,” which is both a live comedy show that happens weekly in LA and a podcast that you can listen to anytime, anywhere! Check it out. And also check out a longtime friend and fellow joymaker, Chelsea Foy, whose site lovelyindeed.com is constant source of joy and ideas on how to make and spread it. Have a great week, y’all!
The one and only Teyonce. The one and only Ooohwee. That’s right, ladies and gents and all non-binary folx, on today’s episode I am joined by Te’juana Johnson and David Brice-Miller, two of the funniest, smartest, bad-assest people ever. We talk shade, identity, politics (for just a moment), and so much more. I know I say this all the time…but this really is one of my very favorite episodes of TBD With LDT.

The one and only Amy Seeley is on the podcast today! Amy is an actor, an improvisor, a writer, an educator, an empowering force in the Universe, and a founder of Chicago’s Factory Theater — amongst other things. She and I sit down for an absolutely heartening, inspiring, dee-lightful conversation about life, learning, finding your voice, #metoo, improvisation, and a whole lotta other great stuff. There’s a reason why Amy Seeley is a favorite human of many, and you can hear why on this week’s episode of TBD With LDT.
RELEASE DATE: July 11, 2018
Hannah Gadsby’s show “Nanette” is available for streaming on Netflix and I highly, Highly, HIGHLY recommend it. It’s categorized as a comedy show, because Hannah has been working as a comedian for years, but this transcends comedy. This is a Truth in Storytelling master class, a raw and real and intensely human piece of work. It’s theatre and personal narrative and stand-up and it is so damn good. Life-changingly good, even.
