Recent alum Ryan Patrick Dolan has a new podcast called the GOATCAST where he interviews artists and other random intriguing people! Some of his recent guests have included TV writer Kate Powers and Annie J. Howell and Lisa Robinson who worked on the local film “Claire in Motion.” Here’s a little bit about it in his words:
“I’ve always been drawn to interviews and longform bios of artists and their process. My guests include writers, actors, artists, musicians, sportswriters, and people I meet or know that I find interesting and are passionate about their work.
The GOATcast with Ryan Patrick Dolan is inspired by interview shows/podcasts like Fresh Air, WTF, and Nerdist’s TV Writer’s Panel, with a little Colbert Report and The-Idiot-Orange-Dumbsh*t who shall remain nameless. Also, a special shout-out to Sammy Tamimi’s unheralded Popfury Podcast.”
More about Ryan
Ryan Patrick Dolan just completed his MFA in Playwriting at the Ohio University Playwriting Program under Charles Smith and Erik Ramsey. He has a B.A. in playwriting from Columbia College Chicago where he studied under playwright, Lisa Schlesinger. He writes dark, comedic plays that are stylistically influenced by his years of improvisation, acting, and the Chicago Storefront aesthetic.
Dolan’s play, “Daddy’s Little Girls,” was named a National Semifinalist for the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival’s 10-minute play competition, the THE GARY GARRISON AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING TEN-MINUTE PLAY. In conjunction with KCACTF, “Daddy’s Little Girls” also garnered him one of the eight, nationwide nominations for the National Partners of American Theatre Playwriting Award which recognizes “best-written, best-crafted script with the strongest writer’s “voice.”” His full-length play,“Moraine,” had a reading at the 2014 Seabury Quinn Jr. Playwrights Festival at Ohio University, and at the Trellis Reading Series at the Greenhouse Theater Center. Moraine was self-produced at CIC Theater in Chicago in the spring of 2015, and was directed by Mary Rose O’Connor.
