S.O.C. or Superheroes of Color (w/ Ariel Estrada)

Are You Fangirling Right Now?

On this week's episode, Ariel and I fangirl over comic books, but most importantly, representation in comic books. With the focus being on the short lived 90s comic book series, Blood Syndicate.Ariel campaigns that the series be rebooted (at least for closure), I learn that 3 seconds can mean life or death, and even in comic books you still can't beat racism...you just super powers instead.Follow your host:https://www.instagram.com/andy_ricks/https://twitter.com/Andy_RicksFollow Ariel Estrada:https://www.arielestrada.com/https://www.instagram.com/arielestrada1/https://twitter.com/arielestrada

Why I‘ll Never Make It - An Actor‘s Journey

Broadway is all abuzz with the latest shows and performances making all the headlines. But theater in New York is so much more than what happens on the great white way. There's important and significant work being done off-Broadway and by theater companies around the city.  One such company is Leviathan Lab, and today I'm talking to Ariel Estrada . . . an actor, singer, arts advocate, producer, and Founder of Leviathan Lab. They are an award-winning not-for-profit creative studio whose mission is the advancement of Asian and Asian American performing artists and their work. With Leviathan Lab (now celebrating its 10th year), Ariel has produced acting and writing salons, cabarets, fundraising events, staged readings, showcase productions, and short films, including the award-winning film Two Weeks. But today's conversation is so much more than just shop talk about auditioning and producing and running a non-profit. Our conversation really digs into some weighty topics of race and opportunity for people of color and the struggles that go with that. Ariel is quite candid and open about his experiences and how they've shaped his career. This is an episode you don't wanna miss!
