Welcome to the sHeroe’s Journey Podcast©, a podcast for sHeroes and the people who love them. I’m Pamela Prather and for over twenty years, I have been empowering actors, executives, and curious humans with tools to unlock their voices and tell their stories.
Today’s episode begins with: The Ordinary World. We focus on the beginning, seeing where we are, staring the journey and imagining the future. I spoke with Tiffany Rachelle Stewart (a bi-racial Black identifying Broadway actress and NYU professor about her project, The Listening 2020. She, along with her partner Tyler Rivenbark (a white-identifying educator and playwright), are saying the things that often go unsaid around white allyship, and delivering those messages in a way that emboldens and empowers. I also speak with my 11-year-old son in a segment called “Me & The Kid”, where he shares his perspective on starting a new journey.
