Kyle's been very busy as of late, and you should check out his excellent work.  We noted the start of his podcasts back at the beginning of September, with an interview with the cast and creatives behind StageWest's production of Hand to God.  Since then, Kyle's given us a backstage visit to the local productions of Songs for a New World (a benefit staging for Des Moines Young Artists' Theatre) and Repertory Theatre of Iowa's Death of a Salesman.

Already recorded is a visit with some of the young stars involved with James and the Giant Peach Jr. (opening October 14).  We'll try to keep everyone informed of what other casts and crews will be Kyle's guests in the forthcoming weeks, but in the meantime please check out the episodes recorded so far.  You'll find links below to each of the shows up to this date.
