Suzette Simon is the founder of NYLaughs (NYL), a 501(c)3 performing arts nonprofit dedicated to enriching the lives of New Yorkers through laughter and deepening an appreciation of stand up comedy as a unique NY cultural asset by producing free comedy programming in public spaces.  For the past 13 years, NYL has offered live comedy performances to diverse audiences in welcoming, accessible public spaces to target populations that might not otherwise have access to or experience with premier live artistic comedic entertainment.  It's signature summer series, "Laughter in the Park," is the only program of its kind and NYL estimates having entertained over 25,000 New Yorkers and visitors.  Each year it creates a vital space for residents to come together using comedy to explore the most critical issues of our city and times. Though, “Laughter in the Park 2020” was postponed due to Covid-19, NYL was still able to host an online, accessible show called “Laughter in Lockdown.” Connecting through comedy improves the mental and physical health of New Yorkers and acts as a community-building opportunity for those who need it most while also encouraging comedy's next generation and providing greater opportunities for comedic artists to grow their audiences and influence.  Suzette also created the #STRONGBLACKBOOBS initiative as a place for others to go for breast cancer information based on her experiences, comedy, self-esteem boosters and support for communities of color.

Remember When We Caught The Spirit? (feat. Pastor Shirley Caesar and Ashon Crawley)
Can You Hear It? I Know You Caught The Spirit This week, Josh and Tracy are taking you to church. First, they talk about their time in the pews, from the ways they've had to reconcile their faiths and identities to the music that has stuck with them. They hear about the deep, poetic roots of Gospel in Black identity from writer and professor Ashon Crawley. And they sit down with pastor and legend Shirley Caesar to talk about her reverence for the music, her unforgettable “greens, beans, potatoes, tomatoes” meme, and the importance of finding joy right now.

How Does a Man Get Away with Calling Women Bitches and Hoes in a Story?
Today’s episode is the last in a series called Home. Writing Class Radio helped produce a documentary with Chapman Partnership, a homeless center in South Florida, exploring the meaning of home. Our documentary will air on PBS, date (tba). On this episode, you will hear a story by Marvin Jenkins, a past student, poet, Boeing employee, and dad. Marvin lost his home after he wrote an explicit text message to his girlfriend’s best friend and she kicked him out. Marvin has always been in love with Serena, but drugs got the best of him.  Marvin’s essay is a great example of how taking responsibility for your actions in a story creates a reliable narrator. The voice in this essay also exemplifies how you can say ugly things, if you own that they are ugly.  Writing Class Radio is co-hosted by Allison Langer (www.allisonlanger.com) and Andrea Askowitz (www.andreaaskowitz.com). This episode of Writing Class Radio is produced by Matt Cundill of Sound Off Media Company, Andrea Askowitz and Allison Langer. Mia Pennekamp is our media specialist. Theme music by Ari Herstand. Additional music by Podington Bear.
