In June 2020, arts journalists Diep Tran and Jose Solís launched a website called Token Theatre Friends. It was originally founded in 2018 as a podcast and video series, hosted by American Theatre magazine. But in 2020, Jose and Diep took the brand independent, and they’ve expanded it to be not just podcast and video, but original articles and criticism about theater and the arts. In its first three months of inception, the TokenTheatreFriends.com has been seen by more than 30,000 visitors from around the world. It is 100% reader-supported via Patreon.
