The No Proscenium Podcast

Story Engineer Shawn Taylor, a founding author of www.thenerdsofcolor.org, and a founding organizer of the Black Comix Arts Festival, first hit my radar at the 2019 IDS thanks to Mikhael Tara Garver. Shawn brought a perspective that was rooted in pluralism and the power of story to move people to action... and at that moment I knew I had to get him on the show/get him back on our stage.

For years Los Angeles anticipated the arrival of Alamo Drafthouse, the Austin theater chain, and it seems to have been well worth the wait. From rowdy screenings of CATS which have since swept the nation to full-on ARGs there's something special happening at the DTLA Drafthouse. Host Noah Nelson talks with Ash Minnick, who handles the programming inside the Video Vortex, which we've come to think of as "LA's neighborhood movie bar" on the eve of their immersive EMMA. tea party.
