Show Notes

In this long-overdue episode, Kat, Maggie, and I discuss how Kat became a highly-successful Improv practioner and owner of an Improv theater house with a colorful past. Maggie describes what its like to be loved and snubbed by her favorite Improv partner - her cat. This episode, with all its unexpected and unintended moments, was so good that I had to make it a two-parter! Please enjoy!
