Keep it up, Mullaney! Good stuff!
I am learning a lot. Thanks for putting these out!
Think deep about your 'prov
This is a cool podcast, it seems to have a bit of a scattered focus in my opinion. Kevin always has deep heady conversations about the nature of improv then out of no where he'll ask about an exercise that his guests like. It's all good I guess. I find it a little less fun to listen to than the UCB Theatre podcast, but still completely enjoyable.
