  • The neuroscience of trauma and healing

  • Why it can take years to heal and can be hard to know "how healed" we are

  • Trans and gender nonconforming stories and perspectives on healing

  • Forsaking privilege to center underserved communities, and how working intersectionally can help us all to heal

  • Violence prevention, bystander strategies, and restorative justice practices that can help heal the culture

  • The power of telling--and listening to--real-life personal stories

  • Ways to combat harassment in the theater and other professions

  • And much more

You’ll also get Podcast Extras, with powerful excerpts from the performances, personal stories, poems, songs, and audience Q&As heard at the Festival.
