Fainting Couch Feminists Episode 8: She's Just So "Her": Live with Katie-Ellen Humphries!

Live from the back room of R&B brewing, comedian Katie-Ellen Humphries joins host Mica Lemiski to chat about the different roles we perform—whether on stage, through our art, or in our everyday lives. Also included: how NOT to deal with sexism in a writer's room, and why "I don't change for anyone" is not actually a very cool attitude.

Growing Room Festival 101 for Procrastinators

In the words of our Festival Director, Arielle Spence, “Growing Room is a celebration, a protest, a reflection, a re-envisioning, a gathering, a question, and a dream. It is the culmination of forty years of hard work and creativity and the start of a new era.” If you're eager to attend but uncertain where to begin, we understand; when the festival was conceptualized two years ago, we did not foresee organizing a five-day festival with twenty-five panels, workshops, readings, and special events, involving over fifty emerging and established writers and artists.
