Sweating the Small Stuff with Sunny Drake

S3 E70 • Jun 21, 2023 • 34 mins

Hersh Rephun converses with Sunny Drake about his theatrical journey, trans representation issues, and the utilization of satire in his work. They explore the revival of audio storytelling, collective listening, and its significance in tackling climate change. The discussion also covers the importance of community and arts in climate change advocacy.

Key Points

  • Humor and satire can be powerful tools to engage people with serious issues like climate change, allowing for a sideways approach that can ease the audience into difficult conversations.
  • The podcast "Climate Change and Other Small Talk" leverages the format of short audio dramas performed by professional actors to explore global perspectives on climate change, emphasizing the importance of collective action and local activism over individual efforts.
  • Despite the enormity of climate challenges, the podcast stresses the opportunity for meaningful, collective organization and action, with a focus on policy solutions and systemic changes that address the root causes of climate issues.

It's nice every now and then to take a break from all that heavy stuff and just shoot the breeze about climate change, trans rights, and the state of the arts. Of course, those ARE heavy topics - or at least they can be, which is why it was awesome to sit down with Sunny Drake.

Sunny is an award-winning playwright whose innovative and diverse works have been showcased in over 60 cities worldwide. In addition, Sunny is the leader of the CLIMATE CHANGE & OTHER SMALL TALK podcast, which is written by nine playwrights from six different countries and provides a fun and engaging perspective on climate change.
