Episode 175: Empire Arts Collective

I close out the fifth season of the show by chatting with Emily Perez and Jessilee Windhaus, the founders of Empire Arts Collective. Their website describes the collective as providing, “support for performing artists to collaborate, learn, and share resources.”

In this episode of the show I chat with Jessie and Emily about not knowing how to be quiet; how to tell if Wes Anderson is for you or not; the amazing set designs used in theater productions; how the desire to create partnerships lead to the founding their collective; why would you need to try any harder when you’re doing good enough (we’re talking 90%); the need to have a sense of entitlement balanced by a strong work ethic; their practice of collaborating without making it a competition; and when we will be starting our “Pie Cast” podcast.
