Welcome to Risky Business with Beau York. I’m your host, Beau York and today we have a delayed episode that frankly, I’m a little embarrassed that I’m just now getting it out to you. 

Before we get started I want to do 2 things. First of all, just apologize for the fact that this episode is so so very late coming out. We’ve been very busy behind the scenes working on our immersive theatre project and there are some very exciting things happening right now. In fact so exciting, that I’m having to up my timetables on what I want to do with this podcast. 

This will essentially be the final episode of what has been ‘Risky Business with Beau York’. Now Don’t go anywhere because the feed will still be here. But in the new year there will be a new name with a new focus on bringing you fully behind the scenes on what we’ve been working on for the past several months. I’ll also be discussing immersive theater from an industry level and highlight some news in this space as well as share my own personal thoughts on where the industry is headed. 

All of this is connected to the mindset that stories have power. And the various ways we engage with those stories can transform not just ourselves but also our understanding of the world. 

So for those of you have enjoyed this very short lived mini series of ‘Risky Business’ I hope you will stay tuned because we’ve got some really great things coming down the line. 

But now I DEFINITELY have to apologize again because this episode was recorded forever ago. Several weeks back I was able to meet up with some friends of mine as we were discussing the, then, very fresh on everybody's mind, controversy surrounding comedian Hasan Minhaj. Our conversation goes into the ideas surrounding emotional truth, as well as audience expectations, specifically in the realm of comedy. 

What is the exception for stories to be true verse entertaining? And when those lines are blurred, whose responsibility is it to recognize the blurring? 

Elodie Leroy is a hummerist, writer, editor. Aadam Keeley is a professional comedian and Second City alum. And despite the moment of this conversation having passed, I hope that you find a lot of value in it. We certainly had a lot of fun discussing it. Enjoy!
