The Compass, a podcast dedicated to the stories of working actors, writers, directors, designers, dancers, musicians, composers, and playwrights, welcomes filmmaker Kat Hidalgo and actor Anna Martine Freeman.

Created by actor Leah Walsh, the podcast documents the lives of artists navigating the waters between art and commerce. Each week, Playbill highlights Walsh’s latest episode with industry professionals who share their own stories about making art, making a living, and maintaining inspiration.

In this week’s episode Hidalgo and Freeman share their experiences on being an advocate for yourself and others, the Olivier Award-winning play Rotterdam that Anna is currently in London, the ways in which they use their art to be proactive queer activists, and the stories they want to tell.

The Compass can be downloaded for free on iTunes.
