The Compass, a podcast dedicated to the various struggles of actors, writers, directors, designers, dancers, musicians, composers, and playwrights, welcomes Emily Simoness, the co-founder and executive director of SPACE on Ryder Farm, an artist residency in upstate New York.
Created by actress Leah Walsh, the podcast documents the lives of artists navigating the waters between art and commerce. Each week, Playbill.com highlights Walsh’s latest episode with industry professionals who share their own stories about making art, making a living, and maintaining inspiration.
This week, Simoness shares her thoughts on moving from a background as an actor into a new focus as SPACE has grown, the technical side of creating a non-profit, and building community.

Episode 44: Liz Jenkins – Actress.
Episode 35: Daniel Talbott – Actor, Director, Playwright, and Producer.
