17 – #YEGTheatreStats w. Samantha Jeffery

Professional theatre artist Samantha Jeffery is here to discuss her pilot project: #YEGTheatreStats – a professional theatre database of jobs in the Edmonton theatre industry based on gender.

We go over how Sam collects and presents her data; the nuance of creating categories and sub-categories in order to make her spreadsheet accurate, yet readable; and we also talk about how vital a public database of this sort is for those seeking to recognize their hiring trends within the Edmonton theatre community.

You can read the spreadsheet here (https://jefferysl.wixsite.com/yegtheatrestats) and, if it’s within your power, you can support Sam and this project by donating to her Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/Yegtheatrestats).
If you’re in the Calgary area: check out OUTReels (https://www.fairytalesfilmfest.com/outreels/), a non-profit film-based diversity education program that does wonderful work.

Live from the Gardens: The Warning

This week on Live from the Gardens, we’re talking houseflies and rhinos, the two main morphs from Animorphs #16: The Warning.

What’s the difference between a white rhino and a black rhino? Why are houseflies all different sizes? Why do the Fanimorphs continue to interrupt each other, no matter how many times they make a podcast? Find out the answer to two of these questions by tuning in!

Hypothetical Question of the Week: Would you rather be a fly with the skin of a rhino or a rhino with the wings of a fly?

Sitting down with us to explore the mind, body, and spirit connection is yoga instructor and practitioner Kavita Sundar.

We’ll go over how one develops a practice – in whatever activity gets you into the zone – as well as how yoga can be seen as aways happening. We gush about how important breathing is and how we should strive to take the time to observe the present moment. In addition we discuss all the ways Rainbow Connection holds inclusive, productive safe spaces for those looking to participate more with the community around them.
