Spike Lee's modern update of the ancient Greek comedy "Lysistrata" gets the once-over from Susan and Russ.
Although I don't produce my own show, I participate in other people's shows and I simply love the comraderie. On the "Pioneer Series" for Heartland Labor Forum, I've interviewed women in traditionally male-identified jobs: a female pilot, firefighter, drummer, mail carrier, electrician. For the "Tenth Voice", I interviewed a woman in a gay marriage who shared candidly about the validity as well as travails of seeking recognition for her committed bond. I also wrote and starred with Tom Edmondson in a four-episode soap opera called: "Fatal Femmes and the Derringer Dame". With Bill Clause, I conducted a class in writing comedy for the radio. This effort resulted in a one hour success called "Radio for Laughs". With Russ Simmons, I co-host the "Take Two" spot which involves reviewing independently made films and art-house movies currently showing in Kansas City.
