A starship captain and the president of the universe walk into a bar… well, almost! Lady Bam podcast traveled to New York City to speak to the one and only Kate Mulgrew. Mary and Kate sat down for an amazing talk, discussing Kate’s new book “How to Forget: A Daughter’s Memoir”, their experiences growing up in Irish-American households, her recent play in New York “The Half-Life of Marie Curie”, and much more. Lady Bam Podcast is thrilled to bring you this long-awaited episode.
Happy New Year! The Lady Bam Podcast is back with the first of two brand new podcasts for a brand new decade! This past fall, Mary starred as Gloria Steinem in Gloria: A Life, at the McCarter Theatre in Princeton, NJ. The show featured a dynamic, all-female cast telling Gloria’s story in the first act, and inviting the audience to join them in a talking circle to share their personal experiences in the second act. While the actors brought Gloria and her contemporaries to life each night, they found many of the messages and history being told on stage impacting and informing their lives. In this episode, Mary is joined by two of her co-stars in Gloria, Gabrielle Beckford and Patrena Murray, to discuss their experiences on and off the stage, in the first of our own Lady Bam talking circles with the cast and creative team of Gloria: A Life.
So Say We All! Lady Bam Podcast traveled to the Saenger Theatre in Pensacola, Florida to take part in an epic Battlestar Galactica reunion as part of Pensacon 2019, and we’re thrilled to be able to share the full panel with our listeners for the first time ever as a podcast!
President Roslin and the Lady Bam herself, Mary McDonnell, led a special cast reunion panel with Michael Hogan (Saul Tigh), James Callis (Gaius Baltar), Michael Trucco (Sam Anders), Tricia Helfer (Six), Tahmoh Penikett (Helo) and Leah Cairns (Racetrack).
Taking place on the eve of the 10 year anniversary of the end of the series, the panel reminded us just how special this show was, and what an extraordinary group of people it brought together to bring it to life. Discussing character arcs, reminiscing and debating the idea of a revival (spoiler alert: the cast is ready, and even has an idea!), this is a BSG panel unlike anything you might have heard before. They say that all this has happened before – but it only happened this first time in Pensacola!
