Here's what folks are saying about call and response podcast:
"Thank you so much for creating a platform where artists can come together to have these conversations. Honest, unbiased, and real. It was really an honor speaking alongside some genius genuine artists of color." - TOny nominee Hailey Kilgore
"Thank you for a comfortable space to talk, share, and drop some truth about my life." -Lortel winner Jocelyn Bioh
"This is not only an entertaining podcast but it's so necessary right now. It shines a light on some incredible black actors and theatre-makers and the conversations about race are eye-opening and insightful. Please listen if you want to understand why the lack of diversity in theatre is actually a big deal." -iTunes reviewer
"As a young black man from a small town in Texas that has been fighting to maintain his dream of a thriving career within the entertainment industry, Call and Response has been awe-inspiring! Hearing these artists' stories about their journeys has been both a history lesson and a call to action. I really appreciate how Felicia Fitzpatrick is creating dialogue about the joys, triumphs, and struggles of black artists on Broadway. I believe she has structured these conversations to make sure that all listeners know that they either have a place within Broadway or there is some way tou can play a part in continuing to make it a more diverse and inclusive stage!" -iTunes reviewer
"I'm a white female visual artist, not involved in theatre professionally, but I love to listen to the stories of the actors on this show! It is entertaining, informative, and inspiring. So many takeaways for my own creative field, personal art practice, and being an accomplice/ally as a white person. So much joy seeing the joy and strength of black actors going after their craft making waves!" -iTunes reviewer
