Poetry, Writing, & Identity w. Gianmarco Visconti

Ep. 94

Poet Gianmarco Visconti joins us to discuss his work as a writer on a collision course with his audience.

We go over what makes poetry an engaging form to work with, how obscuring meaning can illuminate one’s identity, and what do to with your hands whilst reading poems standing up.

50 – Acting w. Quinn Hinch

The one and only Quinn Hinch joins us from across the Interwebs to talk all about his experience as an actor!

We’ll be discussing performances, acting on screen vs. on stage, and the social value of learning to act (which is all just tactically using empathy & imagination). Not to mention all of the weirdness that comes with being in a production city like Vancouver vs. a lively, yet contained scene like Edmonton.
