Today’s episode features Iyvon E., a creative producer, theater maker, and the Director of Artistic Programs at the Signature Theater. Before audio and podcast plays became popular due to social distancing, Iyvon had been at the forefront of this medium as the founder of The Parsnip Ship, a theater company and platform that re-imagines the radio play through stories that differ in form, content, and plot by underproduced and underrepresented voices.
