About this Episode

This week Jess and Joe talk about the way we collect data and why it's important to question our methods so that we don't unintentionally leave groups and people out. Surveying theatre organizations based solely on this size of their budget means you get results skewed away from organizations that serve communities of color, but a study at SMU's DataArts aimed to refocus that lens. Additionally, they discuss the concept of a human library where you can speak to a person from a historically stigmatized group and hopefully change your misconceptions. Many stories of optimism in this week's episode, enjoy!
