Artist Soapbox, episode 98: Compassion, Care and Children’s Lit with Amber Wood, the Storylady.
“Would you like to hear a story? How about a song? Enjoy a conversation with Amber Wood about self-care, children’s literature, feelings, breathing and much more (including a song for self-soothing!).”
Artist Soapbox, episode 68: Lost and Found with the cast of IN A WORD.
“‘When a couple’s child goes missing, words fail and sustain them through their search.’ A conversation with a delightful trio of actors about acting, character development, and working with a script. The entire cast of the Bulldog Ensemble Theatre’s production of IN A WORD — Amber Wood, Matthew Hager, and Thaddaeus Edwards speak honestly about grief, parenting, loss, and compassion… and somehow manage to laugh joyfully throughout.”
