On today’s podcast, we catch up with Adam Szymkowicz. We have covered Adam’s plays in the past and now that we are extending our reach into NYC, we thought it would be great to touch base with him. We caught Adam on his way to a rehearsal in Williamsburg. In one of my favorite spots, Bryant Park, we talk about his growing family, his web series, consuming media and more! Stay Tuned!
