Practicing consent online and IRL with Jess Burnham and Gabe Archuleta of YWCA Utah. Plus, Black Benatar's Black Magic Cabaret and A Reckoning in Boston. All on another #EverydayPeople edition of the show with Community Co-Host Sue Robbins.

Tonight's lineup:

Utah Humanities, Weber State's Lindquist College of Arts & Humanities and Westminster College's School of Arts and Sciences invite communities throughout Utah to join them for a special virtual screening of "A Reckoning in Boston" at 5:30 p.m. this Wednesday. RadioACTive got a preview with Josh Wennergren of Utah Humanities and Brenda Nicholson, a Venture graduate.

  • The documentary follows students in a Clemente Course in the Humanities, a free, interdisciplinary humanities course offered to adults “of modest means who dare to dream.”  While the events of the film take place in Boston, the documentary is relevant to all audiences, and especially those in Utah, where the Venture Course operates as part of a national network of Clemente Courses.

  • It's free – register at When you register, you will receive an email with access to stream the film on April 7th at 5:30pm MST and join a live Q&A at 7:00pm MST.

Last Friday artist Beatrice Thomas debuted Black Benatar's Black Magic Cabaret, in partnership with Utah Presents and the College of Social Work, University of Utah, from Kingsbury Hall in SLC. RadioACTive caught up with Thomas to find out what's next for her unique creation — an eclectic theater spectacle that fuses elements of local performance, magic, and drag performance to bring audiences on a journey through race and cultural allyship in the U.S.
