Today's episode features Jeremy Wein- a producer and director based in New York City. Jeremy is the founder and artistic director of the virtual theatre initiative Play-PerView.

"Outside of everything, in normal times I see about 100-125 productions a year, so I see a lot of theatre. The short version is that last January I was in San Francisco doing Kevin McDonald's show at a festival and I remember being in the hotel and seeing on CNN something that was going on in Wuhan," he explained. "Then it just suddenly slammed into everything here... I knew that sadly, this would not be the two week scenario that everyone thought it would be." Find out even more about how the pandemic accelerated plans at Play-PerView in the full interview below.

Meghan Finn) and the 2012 documentary The Bitter Buddha (Co-Producer). He is also the founder of the New York City Podcast Festival, which he produced from 2013-2018.
