Hi, friends of Teaching Artistry with Courtney J. Boddie! We've got a brand new episode for you! "Episode 21: What It Means About, Act 1", which includes a brand new segment titled "Friends of the Podcast" featuring an entertaining conversation with AJ DUNK (spelled *all caps*), is a conversation with Oliver Butler, director of Broadway's acclaimed production of Heidi Schreck's What the Constitution Means to Me. It's clear: political complacency leads to political apathy, civic engagement is required to keep progress at the forefront of our democracy, art is activism.

Courtney asks the questions: How can we truly define the word "feminarchy" as a good, forward-moving thing? How do we begin to change how we talk to each other? How can I strive to nurture others? How can arts be at the center of this? And perhaps we should all ask ourselves these same questions so that we can begin to move forward to fully realize our humanity.
