TBD With LDT, Ep. 39: “Attitude”

SUPER SLEEPY whilst recording, but I had some thoughts tumbling round my head about attitude, considering others the way we want to be considered, how attitude affects others, and how our attitude towards ourselves can impact our relationship to others and our attitude towards them…or theirs towards us.

TBD With LDT, Ep. 38: “Joy”

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!

TBD With LDT, Ep. 37: “The Tey & Dave Show”

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.

TBD With LDT, Ep. 36: “New Year, New Episode”

New year, new episode of TBD With LDT! I didn’t make any “new year’s resolutions,” but I have made conscious choices about what I want going forward. I want to love myself. To say yes to myself. Audre Lorde sagaciously said: “we have been raised to fear the yes in ourselves.” This is true of millions and millions of us: we have gotten “NO” from so many sources that we have internalized that No, to the point where we may have forgotten how to say YES to ourselves. For myself, I am choosing to say yes by taking better care of my physical vessel, by loving myself first (so that I can continue to love others), and by saying yes to personal growth and change…. like starting the year single. Thanks for listening to TBD With LDT, and I hope your new year brings you much YES!

TBD With LDT, Ep. 35: “TBD With Amy Seeley”

RELEASE DATE: December 25, 2018

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.

TBD With LDT, Ep. 34: “TBD With Bethany Saint-Smith”

RELEASE DATE: December 12, 2018

Bethany Saint-Smith is a singer-songwriter, a poet, an autobiographer, a mother, a survivor, a force of nature — and a piece of the Universe glowing brightly. Of her singing, The Supreme’s Susaye Greene said, “Bethany has the instincts of an aged American blues singer. There’s a tug in the heart when you hear her sing that grabs you and makes you wonder what she’s lived through. She reminds me of the earthy Odetta of 60’s Folk-rock fame, or of Nina Simone’s scathingly sophisticated perceptions of life.” Bethany and I sit down and discuss life and barriers and human relationships in what will hopefully just be one episode in a series of talks with this incredible artist.
