The Compass, a podcast dedicated to the stories of working actors, writers, directors, designers, dancers, musicians, composers, and playwrights, is beginning a new initiative in which creator and host Leah Walsh will welcome guests who are both artists and activists—especially those who are taking action and working for change.

The podcast celebrated its 100th episode with a special live event featuring actor, choreographer, director, and teacher Jesse J. Perez, as well as musical guest Samora Pinderhughes. The podcast was recorded live November 19 and features a theme song by Brendan Spieth.

During the special episode, Perez shares his experiences with the dark side, how he's expanded his definition of who he is as an artist, and the opportunities that have opened up to him because of it, as well as his own thoughts on collaboration, learning to say no, and the importance of honest conversations as a teacher.

The Compass can be downloaded for free on iTunes.
