SUPER SLEEPY whilst recording, but I had some thoughts tumbling round my head about attitude, considering others the way we want to be considered, how attitude affects others, and how our attitude towards ourselves can impact our relationship to others and our attitude towards them...or theirs towards us.…
 
JOY! That's the theme of this week's podcast. Adam Ferguson and I are working on an sound recording assignment for class, and I loved his idea of asking strangers the question "What brings you joy?" On today's episode of TBD With LDT, I recount some of the answers we got, as well as some of Adam and I's reflections -- and I list some of the thi ...…
 
The one and only Teyonce. The one and only Ooohwee. That's right, ladies and gents and all non-binary folx, on today's episode I am joined by Te'juana Johnson and David Brice-Miller, two of the funniest, smartest, bad-assest people ever. We talk shade, identity, politics (for just a moment), and so much more. I know I say this all the time...bu ...…
 
New year, new episode of TBD With LDT! I didn't make any "new year's resolutions," but I have made conscious choices about what I want going forward. I want to love myself. To say yes to myself. Audre Lorde sagaciously said: "we have been raised to fear the yes in ourselves." This is true of millions and millions of us: we have gotten "NO" from ...…
 
The one and only Amy Seeley is on the podcast today. Amy is an actor, an improvisor, a writer, an educator, an empowering force in the Universe, and a founder of Chicago's Factory Theater -- amongst other things. She and I sit down for an absolutely heartening, inspiring, dee-lightful conversation about life, learning, finding your voice, #meto ...…
 
Bethany Saint-Smith is a singer-songwriter, a poet, an autobiographer, a mother, a survivor, a force of nature -- and a piece of the Universe glowing brightly. Of her singing, The Supreme’s Susaye Greene said, “Bethany has the instincts of an aged American blues singer. There’s a tug in the heart when you hear her sing that grabs you and makes ...…
 
Greg Sidnam is a fellow MFA in TVFT student at Cal State LA, a technician, a director, a former actor, and one of those people who gives meaning to the term "don't judge a book by its cover." When we first met in Fall 2017, we probably wanted to punch each other in the face a little bit. But the thing about listening to others is that you often ...…
 
On this episode, I once again sit down with Jeremiah Ripley, a fellow MFA Actor at Cal State LA, and this time we dig deep into matters of queer identity, politics, acceptance, awareness, representation, and more. Progress was made in the midterm elections, but our world still has work to do -- and some of that work starts by letting ourselves ...…
 
...aaaaand we're back from Unexpected Hiatus Due to Life as an MFA Acting Student! The past few weeks have been tough ones, not just because of an intensely fulfilling school workload, but also because our country--our WORLD--is in a state of tremendous upheaval. Over the past two weekends, I was privileged to sit in the audience of two theatre ...…
 
TW: This week's episode centers on the current national narrative surrounding Ford/Kavanaugh. This was not an easy podcast to record, and I understand if it's not easy to listen to. I'm worn down and worn out by the crushing weight of anguish and anger, I'm tired of saying the same things year after year, I'm broken apart because every time a h ...…
 
"It takes a village to raise a child," the old saying goes. In our modern world, we could easily replace "village" with community and the meaning would be largely the same. I'm so grateful to the community that I am a part of, because you all show me that there is empathy and generosity of spirit alive and well in the world. I see my community ...…
 
August 20th marked the beginning of the 2nd year of my MFA, the first semester of the Teacher Training program, and Joel's first year at CSULA. On August 15th, I got word that my dad had a stroke and was in the hospital. He's doing okay, all things considered, and these past few weeks have been big ones. Balancing the emotional/mental/physical ...…
 
SO happy to sit with my friend Adam Ferguson: Equity/SAG actor, voracious reader and theatre-goer, and a fellow MFA student in the TVFT program at Cal State LA. Lots of laughs in this episode as we riff with one another about an array of topics. Enjoy!By Laura Dickinson-Turner
 
This is my favorite episode of TBD With LDT so far, and for good reason. Not only is Traci Sprague the Artistic Director (and de facto Technical Director!) of Center Stage Conservatory in Modesto, she is also the mom of four amazing kids who are artists and activists in their own right. Traci is an actor, a director, a public figure, and she is ...…
 
Hannah Gadsby's show "Nanette" is available for streaming on Netflix and I highly, Highly, HIGHLY recommend it. It's categorized as a comedy show, because Hannah has been working as a comedian for years, but this transcends comedy. This is a Truth in Storytelling master class, a raw and real and intensely human piece of work. It's theatre and p ...…
 
My summer job this year is working at a Summer Arts program for kids ages 10-15. I'm a theatre teacher, and in the morning I get to do bio-mechanics work with all 140+ students. Being around these kids has thrown sharp perspective onto the current events of our world, particularly what's happening right here in the US. I reflect on some of the ...…
 
You guys, life gets BUSY sometimes! But honestly, I prefer it that way. Here's a little catch-up on what I've been doing, why my summer is so busy, why I prefer to stay busy, and some of the things I have planned for Summer 2018 -- including some LONG held goals that I want to FINALLY accomplish. Thanks for listening!…
 
Happy Pride Month 2018, y'all! We're here, we're queer, and we're celebrating all month long! Today's episode is a personal and heartfelt explosion of gratitude for the progress we've made, and a sobering look at how far we still have to go. We still live in a world where being openly LGBTQIA+ makes us a target--from anything to subtle microagr ...…
 
The first time I sat down to record an episode about "adulting," the Audacity app crashed and the file was corrupt and unable to be resurrected. This second time, I was 15 minutes deep into recording when I realized I wanted to start all over again -- which I did. Now if that isn't the most meta commentary on adulting ever, I don't know what is ...…
 
I went to DragCon on Saturday, May 12th and was able to see Brian McCook's (aka Katya)DEB Talk. It was so GOSH DANG inspiring and I HIGHLY recommend that you check out his podcast "Whimsically Volatile," Brian talked about boundaries and living in the moment and much of what he said resonated with me and was directly related to some of the taki ...…
 
The books I read as a kid and as a young adult made lasting impressions on me, shaping my personal perspectives and behaviors in powerful and positive ways. What books or media did you consume as a young person that shaped and influenced your adult self?By Laura Dickinson-Turner
 
As a result of racial bias and racial profiling, a Starbucks employee called the cops on two real estate agents who were waiting inside the store for a potential client to arrive for a business meeting. The gentlemen were arrested, despite their innocence (they were not acting against any official Starbucks policy by simply waiting in the cafe) ...…
 
An apology for the potential sound of stomping feet from the neighbors' kids who live above us turned into an episode-length musing on renting an apartment, and memorable neighbors.By Laura Dickinson-Turner
 
Gentlemen, start your engines, and may the best woman...win! Yes, henny, today's episode is about one of my FAVORITE things, RuPaul's Drag Race. Listen up and hear how Drag Race helped get me through the 2016 Presidential Election, learn which Queen I went to school with, and get a micro-mini lesson about how RuPaul's Drag Race has opened up th ...…
 
Here's the gritty reality folks: I'm a recovering alcoholic who, in addition to being an actor, ally, and artist, also gets to deal with anxiety, social anxiety, depression, and otha' fun (read: not fun) stuff. In this episode of "TBD With LDT," I discuss how my social anxiety has shifted over the years, and what it's like dealing with it while ...…
 
The Educational Theatre Association (EdTA) has been posting a series of awesomely inspiring infographics, featuring facts/quotes from articles and studies regarding the positive impact of theatre on students. It is SO inspiring that I've dedicated a podcast episode to "Theatre in our Schools," sharing a few of the EdTA posts with you and discus ...…
 
#TriggerWarnings: This episode, among other things, discusses depression, anxiety, binge eating (briefly), repression, and PTSD (also briefly). There's been a lot on my mind lately -- a lot of personal stuff. Stuff like self-reflection that's resulted in some discovery. Or gratitude for being a self-aware human being, and for awareness in gener ...…
 
The somber truth is, I wouldn't be here if it weren't for the power of narrative. I would have taken myself out of this world if not for the strength, hope, inspiration, and fortitude that I found in books. In this episode, I discuss a recent revelation I've had about feeling like an outsider since I was at least three years old (and how that m ...…
 
What is the job of an artist -- an actor, a writer, a musician, a dancer, etc? What do people REALLY mean when they tell an artist to "shut up and do your job?" What does it mean when someone tells an actor "just shut up and say your lines--leave the politics out of it...I didn't pay for you to mouth off about your beliefs," or any number of de ...…
 
10th episode of TBD With LDT! Too bad my brain is too mushy to enjoy it! I was in need of inspiration, so I turned to Storycorps.org and their question generator...but first I waxed sentimental about what a great organization Storycorps. If you haven't checked them out-- DO YOURSELVES A FAVOR AND GET INTO 'EM!…
 
Gary Thomas suggested that I talk about surviving tech week -- that dreaded week before a play opens, when all elements come together for the first time. One thing I forgot to mention? Humor! Humor helps, even if it's just laughing at yourself when there's a snafu. Here's some tips on staying calm, self-care, and creating a productive collabora ...…
 
On today’s episode, Jeremiah Ripley and I sit under a stairwell in the TVFM building at CSULA and talk about the things we do when we’re bored, music and music festivals and large crowds, and getting in trouble in high school.By Laura Dickinson-Turner
 
In which I walk in from Day 1 of spring semester of grad school and record an episode. Discussion of narrative as the primary way that humans learn....and a special surprise guest! JOEL MORRISON!By Laura Dickinson-Turner
 
I've been playing Skyrim (PS4 Special Edition) lately, which has resulted in odd dreams and me reminiscing about some dreams I had when I was a kid...followed by some memories of truly bizarre childhood LDT behavior. Ah, neuroses.By Laura Dickinson-Turner
 
Last night I logged into an ancient email account and was ambushed by memory lane...so today I’m talking about the tricky nature of memory, what it’s like to revisit old emails (tangent: why doesn’t every BA/BFA/BS program have mandatory classes in “Email Writing For Your Field?”), and transitional periods of life (and their anniversaries).…
 
In this episode, I get a little emotional as I reflect on how the ladies are doing it for themselves, and how toppling the hierarchies will save us all.By Laura Dickinson-Turner
 
Episode Three of TBD With LDT is about representation and narrative...and it's the first of a series on representation/narrative. I hope to hear from some of you who would like to be guests in the Representation/Narrative series on TBD With LDT.I'll leave you with a quote from the last few minutes of this episode:"When you're missing from the s ...…
 
The 2nd episode of TBD With LDT: radio plays, local theaters, the 1940’s, Fred Astaire is NOT Frank Sinatra (thank God), and Mark Hamilton’s sandwich bit. Go see PTP’s Radio Cavalcade in Modesto this Sat, Dec 16, 2017 at 8:00pm!By Laura Dickinson-Turner
