Rachel Madorsky – Ep.31

RachelIn this episode of Got Your Back we interviewed Rachel Madorsky.

Rachel is an original ColdTowne faculty member who I personally am particularly thankful for because of how overwhelmingly supportive she has been to myself and others in the community. I have also been lucky enough to travel with Rachel while teaching improv corporate training for Whole Foods, and I can attest to the all around greatness of her character.

In addition to teaching and performing Rachel works as a licensed psychotherapist, and was kind enough to engage us in a conversation about a number of topics including the intersections between therapy and improv.

In the second part of this episode we dove deep into talking about the importance of vulnerability in improv, and did our best to break down and better understand what I believe can sometimes be a scary and misunderstood topic for improvisers.

Finally, we played a round of a new guessing game called “Lifetime Original Movie, Young Adult Novel, or Porno Film?”.
