BroadwayWorld is very excited to announce the launch of season two of Survival Jobs: A Podcast. Created and hosted by Samantha Tuozzolo and Jason A. Coombs, the upbeat and inspiring show premieres here at BroadwayWorld on Thursday, April 7.

Survival Jobs: A Podcast features entertaining, uplifting discussions with Creatives from all corners of the entertainment industry. The guests share their artistic journeys from working "survival" jobs that allow them to pursue their art to living their passions full time, and everything in between. Co-host Tuozzolo says, "the show was born out of inspiration, dreaming, and first hand experience of working and existing in the world of 'survival jobs' while simultaneously, actively pursuing a life in the arts." While Coombs added, "most of the Artists we sit down with share common threads in their stories but no two journeys are the same, which I think reminds those of us who are trying to get to that next level to just keep going!" Every episode ends with the special guest playing a speedy game relevant to their craft, which always wraps things up in an amusing way.

The second season kicks off with Krystal Joy Brown who currently plays Eliza in Hamilton. While interviews with past guests from season one such as Robin de Jesus (Tick Tick Boom, Boys in the Band), Douglas Lyons (Chicken and Biscuits, Beautiful), Janine DiVita (Jagged Little Pill, The Deuce), Chad Hodge (Single All the Way, Wayward Pines), Allison Siko (Law and Order: SVU, Law and Order: Organized Crime), Anastacia McCleskey (Caroline or Change, NBC's Annie Live), Ruffin Prentiss (Insecure, Seal Team) and Gerianne Perez (Waitress, In Transit), among others are currently available to be streamed now.

New episodes will drop every Thursday afternoon for your listening pleasure. In the meantime, click here to check out Season 1!
