My best friend and college roommate (all four years, if you can believe it), Caleb Dicke, and I have always talked about doing something creative together. Many a web series idea came and fizzled over the years. Then this year, my boyfriend was witness to one of our Skype conversations while we were both working. We joked and laughed and had our usually back and forth. We left him laughing and smiling, and he suggested that we should have a podcast.

For some reason, that idea stuck. We kept thinking about it and bringing it up. The perfect name came our way for what we wanted to share: two friends catching up and laughing over a drink. Equity One was born! But we hadn’t taken the first step. It was still just an idea.

Then, this summer, I experienced some loss in my family. Being away from home was both a blessing and a difficulty. As happy and grateful as I am to be working on a show I love, it was difficult to mourn and deal with loss so far away from home. 

That’s what lit the fire to get Equity One going.

I purchased a microphone, Caleb returned from a summer gig, and we scheduled our first recording. We had no idea what we were doing, but we decided to go for it and learn from there.

Now, six episodes later, we have over 1,700 downloads of our podcast and listens in over 15 countries. We have amazing guests on the show that are so interesting and listeners that are interacting with us. Its become more than we ever could have imagined, even at its beginning stage.

As amazing as it is that anyone would care to listen to my friend and I gab over a cocktail, we would be doing it if only our moms were listening. We love talking to people in theatre that we find interesting. We wanted to do something on our own that we enjoyed doing, no matter the result! We do it because we enjoy it. It brings us joy. The fact that other people enjoy it as well is icing on our fulfillment cake.

And it’s delicious.
