It all started because I dissed Carole King on Facebook. Ok, that's not quite accurate. I've been following Elissa Goetschius (@egoetschius) on Twitter almost since I arrived in DC in 2012. She was one of the first people I wanted on the podcast and I am really happy that we could find some time for this conversation (on her birthday no less!). We talk about Sarah Ruhl and meandering career paths and issues of representation for women and people of color in the region's theaters (aka #TheSummit). There was also a cat and a machine for feeding the cat. But mostly, there was the engaging, incisive, excellent Elissa Goetschius.
