For episode 057 of Actorcast, I am joined by actor, singer, and producer, Brennan Srisirikul! Brennan is truly an inspiration and I enjoyed my conversation with him immensely. Brennan is paving the way for disabled performers in the entertainment industry. In our discussion, we talk about how Brennan became a performer, how disability breeds creativity, and the struggles that exist for disabled performers in entertainment. We also discuss Disabled Down Center, the concert and training center that Brennan started alongside past Actorcast guest, Danielle Demchick Pretsfelder, and which is providing immense opportunities for disabled performers.
