About This Show
Show Info: Mouthful is a youth-centered podcast from Philadelphia Young Playwrights, an arts education non-profit dedicated to cultivating the voices of young people. Each week, we dig into the themes and ideas at play in a dramatic monologue written by a young person. We listen to the monologue performed by a professional actor, talk to the young person about why they wrote it, and then journey out into the community to broaden the conversation. Mouthful places young people at the center of important conversations, adding their voices and perspectives to the discussions that surround our daily lives at home, in the workplace, in the news, and in the community.
