This episode is a valentine, lighthouse (and primal scream tbh) for all of our listeners who have been changing the world through the arts and activism and are facing the reality that we have been left with very little in this crisis. Our guest, Michael Skolnik, has been at the center of the major civil and gender rights fights of our lifetime - the racial police shootings, #metoo - and now, he and his agency The Soze Agency along with Task Force and Invisible Hand are the first to recognize the enormity of the crisis facing artists and activists and putting money where their mouths are.

Why have just one mentor when you can have the whole internet? #TM2CPodcast is for anyone who looks outside of their box for inspiration and knows just how important a great mentor can be. Each week, co-hosts and theatre creators Jessica Ryan (Broadway Unlocked) and Andrew Call (Hamilton) have coffee with experts across every field imaginable, from the founder of CURVYcon and Instagram influencer CeCe Olisa, to star of NBC's Community, Danny Pudi, to sex worker and therapist Janis Luna. Our show is just like a coffee date with someone you admire: laid back, personal and insightful; and our partner technology, VideoAsk from Typeform, empowers our listeners and guest's fans to become a part of the conversation.
Oh! And come hang out with us on the internets!
