EMPLOYEE of the MONTH
About This Show
Employee of the Month is a talk show hosted by Catie Lazarus. She interviews phenomenal folks about their careers, be it comedian Jon Stewart or activist Gloria Steinem or Congressman Barney Frank or the Guinness Book of World Record Holder for Most Guinness Book of World Records. These candid conversations may inspire you to finish your novel or start one or simply self medicate. Either way, she hopes you have as much fun listening as she and her guests do talking. Her guests also receive the coveted Employee of the Month Award, which falls somewhere between a Nobel Peace Prize and free cup of coffee. The podcast is released weekly and you can attend live tapings monthly in New York at Joe's Pub. To get involved, go to www.employeeofthemonthshow.com or @catielazarus on Twitter.

Oskar Eustis reveals The Public Theater's plans to hit Trump country
7 days ago
In a city overpopulated with ambitious, brilliant misfits, Oskar Eustis holds his own. The Artistic Director of the legendary Public Theater is somehow directing Julius Caesar with a star-studded cast including Oscar Isaac and Keegan-Michael Key for Shakespeare in the Park, while teaching at NYU, developing new works as far as Hong Kong, and as far, at least politically, as rural and Midwest, Trump voting counties go, while overseeing the mothership with a 120-person staff and at least 4 productions seven nights a week, not including the multiple writing and outreach programs, and stages, including Joe’s Pub. Eustis is an exceptional leader. Eustis is even training and nurtures potential successors. We spoke about how the Public became a global brand, his mission to make theater free and accessible, leadership, and what the windfall from Fun Home and Hamilton’s success on Broadway offers.
