On our most bookish episode yet Holly and Meghan sit down with award-winning Black queer theatre maker and founder of Roots and River Productions, Azure D. Osborne-Lee! Join us as we chat Black sci-fi, sharing stories with family, being a weird kid, our queer night missed connection with Azure at their show Mirrors, the importance of paying artists, fat love interests, the emotional core of Worst Cooks in America and making big queer announcements at family gatherings. Azure explains why Shakespeare needs to take a back seat and why non-profit orgs should be putting their budgets where their mouth (mission statement) is!
