The UnDad Podcast EP 18: Jana O’Connor PT 2

jana2

The second of two parts of our Jana O’Connor interview (please listen to the first one if you already haven’t). To get to the point: Jana is a jewel in the crown of the Canadian arts scene. She is triple H (not the goddamn wrestler): humble, humorous, and ensconced with humanity. We talk about working in the arts, being your own hero, and what it is like dealing with the brokenness of society and still being able to love deliberately. Oh yeah, we also talk about a mysterious box of bones.

Jana and her crew of ragtag misfits are getting excellent reviews for their Fringe Theater Festival show “The Cast of the Irrelevant Show: Doing our Best”. For tickets and info go HERE. Quickly though, rumour is they are selling out. And rumour about that is that it is not a rumour.

I and the proficient Samara Von Rad have a couple more shows coming up for Lottery Rejects.  On Friday and Saturday, it starts at 7pm at the Black Dog. It is pay what you can. There are spirits and liquid bread available. Also: We are pretty fucking funny.

This episode is powered by ATB and sponsored by the Alberta Podcast Network.  Thank you to Andrew Paul and the Edmonton Community Foundation for the recording space and production help. Thanks to Caitlynn Legris for her recording and vocal talents for the new intro intro. Also, many thanks to the super talented Nathaniel Sutton (@defendtherhino) for the use of ‘Fugitive’ as a theme song. And hey, if you like this episode, you could always buy me a coffee.
