Sheri Flanders, improviser, writer, and critic, came to the very first Hand Her the Mic gathering back in 2017, so we were thrilled to welcome her back for our very first multimedia episode. She talked about her visit to Park City as part of the Sundance Press Inclusion Initiative. Video of this conversation will be posted on our new YouTube channel.
