Episode 8: A Hopeful Kiki

Host Aaron Salazar (Award-Winning Theatre Director-Producer Featured in the New York Times, New York Daily News & New York Post), Danny Marin (Award-Winning Producer, Actor & Founder of Con Limón Productions) & Cheech Manohar (Broadway triple threat currently playing ‘Kevin G” in Mean Girls the musical & upcoming Screenwriter) Bring August to a close with Episode 8: A Hopeful Kiki. We start off this rollicking conversation with some much-needed levity before we discuss how to be actionable during these crucial days leading up to the election, and how social media can be a double-edged sword, talk about how Black Lives Matter is not a trend while sharing our thoughts about Jacob Blake, underlining how important it is to make sure that well-meaning Allyship doesn’t become harmful, and the many forms of advocacy & follow through with actionable steps to make a difference, which leads to us unpacking “grading yourself” when you are behind closed doors. The Census makes it way into the conversation and so does Cardi B. Part 1 comes to a close with a message from a dear listener giving the show incredible feedback and encouragement as we wax poetic about what the journey has been for this platform. *Meditation Break* Part 2 turns into a big theatre/show biz love fest Kiki as the “brown brotherhood” expounds on the value of camaraderie, the deep and real need to be supportive, and the deep gratitude they all have for each other. This is just a taste of this jam-packed end of August conversation.
