SHEspeaks: Emma Supica with Unscripted (Ep 4)

This month, Young&BosSHE #SHEspeaks host Hope Buckner speaks with nonprofit consultant and Executive Director of Unscripted Emma Supica about her work within a Nashville start-up, her improv research, and the SHEs who have shaped her life. While in graduate school, Emma launched her thesis work, seeking to learn more about the value of improv in our day to day lives. Nearly a year later, Emma has found herself leading a new local nonprofit devoted to enhancing the educational, emotional, and mental wellness of our community through improv.

Emma details improv’s one core value — “Yes and…” — and the ways this single tenet can have a powerful impact on the lives, recovery and health of the people around us. Improv has the ability to create relationships, build connections and establish all sorts of interconnections among all populations.

“What a gift…We’re in this together — it’s not all on me.” – Emma Supica

Previously a high school arts educator, Emma has been in and out of the classroom for years. After relocating to Nashville from Oklahoma, she launched her Nashville music, education and nonprofit career. As a passionate program developer, she loves discussing nonprofit development, curriculum building and all *things* creativity.

Prologue

Welcome to SHEspeaks, the Young&BosSHE podcast—an opportunity to hear from dynamic SHEs and celebrate their stories. I’m your host, Hope Cooper Buckner, one of the Young&BosSHE co-founders and a passionate advocate for all SHEs. This month we’re highlighting SHshakers, the SHEs in our lives who have made a lasting and meaningful impact on our stories. Today, I’m speaking with non-profit educational consultant and entrepreneurial SHEshaker Emma Supica, about her experience leading a local start up, her own leadership journey, and the women who have shaken up her story.

Podcast

HBC: I’m here with Emma Supica, Executive Director of Unscripted and music educator and consultant. And we are so excited to have Emma with us today as part of the Young&BosSHE podcast SHEspeaks. Emma and I went to grad school together and really have just continued our soul sister journey, I would say, since then.

ES: That’s right.

HCB: So, I just have to admit that upfront, that I have been a big fan of yours for a long time, and I’m so excited to hear more about the work that you’re doing. This month, we are looking at SHEshakers. SHEs in our communities who shake things up. SHEs who empower other SHEs. SHEs who invest in the world around us. SHEs who believe in the power of the voices of the SHEs around them. And SHEs who are…shaking things up. So, as a SHEshaker, I’m really excited to have you.

ES: Thank you. I’m excited to be here.

HCB: Awesome. Awesome. Well let’s start first with your work with Unscripted. So, tell us a little bit about what Unscripted is, how it came to be, your work there as a, what I am calling, a SHEshaking entrepreneur. [laughs] I’m gonna to coin that term, I think.

ES: You got it.

HCB: But tell us a little about your work with Unscripted.

ES: Yeah, so Unscripted is a new non-profit organization based in Nashville. We use improv to enhance the wellness of our community, and we do that by making it a more accessible artform to isolated populations and also using it as an applied method for wellness. There’s also not a lot of information about improv, what the practice of improv can do.

HCB: Yeah.

ES: So part of our mission is just to learn as much as possible. As you know, I wrote my thesis on what improv can do. So that was definitely like some great foundational knowledge for what we’re doing. But we just wanna add to the ether of information that’s out there because it is a deeply rich practice, but it has a very low barrier of entry. You need somebody who knows what they’re doing.

HCB: Okay.

ES: Yeah. Because theoretically, like, you don’t even need a body. [laughs] I mean, there are plenty of podcasts, like improv podcasts. But it is a very in your body process.

HCB: Yeah, interesting.

ES: Usually. It can add to like healing in all kinds of ways. So, our flagship program is our Yes and Recover Program, which is improv for patients in alcohol and drug abuse recovery. And so we take that program into, yeah, recovery centers around the Nashville area.

HCB: Okay. So tell us a little bit about what it is that improv can do.

ES: Ooh! So improv is inherently supportive. I always say, casually, that it is a way for you to practice being a human in a really safe and supportive space.

HCB: Mhm. I like that.

ES: And so, that’s what, like, role model therapy has been around for a long, long time, and, like, theatrical, like, drama therapy. Improv is just, like, it is a joyful practice. I mean, there is definitely serious improv out there, but generally, like, life is funny. So, when you just get to be a part of watching two humans interact just like normal, regular people, just having a conversation that they would have any other day… it’s a really special, intimate, safe, like, supportive setting that you get to engage in. And, like, the main rule, arguably one rule of improv is yes, and so you must agree to every premise that’s offered and then add to it. But really just even the yes part is super important. So, these are people who are looking to agree with you, to support what you’re saying, and to, and to, like, honor your direction that you’ve taken and to play a role in it. To say, like, “Alright, I’ll pick up this side. I got this one.”

HCB: Yeah. And what an interesting rule, I guess, or, or not a rule, right? But a, uhm…rule?

ES: Yeah, it’s hard. We say there are no rules in imrpov but…

HCB: I mean, what do you call that? Like a core…

ES: It is, it’s like a core value. I’ve called it, yeah, value. So, it’s really interesting, my thesis findings were that people in the improv community, really, we don’t have very distinct verbiage to talk about this.

HCB: Mhm, interesting.

ES: We always say, “The one rule of improv is yes, and.” Like, that’s a very commonly accepted thing for people to say.

HCB: Okay.

ES: But, another common thing for people to say, accept the thing as, “there are no rules.”

HCB: Like a tenant, maybe?

ES: I say tenant, yes. So I separated it into principles, values, and behaviors. So, it was sort of like, this ru– or skills, I can’t remember. This rule sort of puts you in this space to have this value which then, like, leads to this behavior. You know, and I wish I had all that just, like, in my head still, but it’s in a book in Belmont’s library.

HCB: You should check it out if you’re interested.

ES: That’s right! That’s right. They’re flying off the shelves. [laughs] But it’s, it, yeah, so like, there are– because improv has been used for a long time in like corporate training. It’s really great for people in sales or just team building.

HCB: Right. Development, I would think? Fundraising?

ES: Definitely development. I mean, you and I are like, “Development, of course!” Not as common as you’d think.

HCB: Interesting.

ES: I’m pushing, as far as like the non-profit development world, like, “Yes. Take improv. You need it.”

HCB: Yeah.

ES: Such a great tool. So, but in that, like, listening is so important in improv. I just did this talk last week at Arts Advocacy Day for Tennesseans for the Arts. And, like, arts advocates, and advocates of any kind, really, like, we talk. We talk so much. Like, we are ready to sell you on our thing. We are the evangelists of whatever thing we’re doing. As we should be. But, if you’re in a room trying to, and you understand, you’re in PR, so you understand, like, the only way that you can convince somebody of something is to understand what their values are and where they’re coming from.

HCB: That’s right.

ES: And the way you do that is listen.

HCB: That’s right.

ES: So, in an improv, your listening becomes like hyper aware because everything that you take in is informing, like, the character. Because in real life, like, you know who you are. You know your values, where you come from, your background, but in improv on a stage, you are creating this character.

HCB: Yeah, kind of developing as you go.

ES: Yeah, it’s going. I mean it’s live. You, you can come on the stage with like a few preconceived notions about what you’re going to do, like, you could sort of wear an emotion or wear an accent. And that could be just, kind of a strong thing that you, you hang onto. But, you have to be ready to– and your character can have wants and desires.

HCB: Sure.

ES: Like, you could decide your character wants to be married. Whatever that means. And then in the scene, like, if that doesn’t really make sense that’s where it becomes funny. If in the scene, your scene partner has decided he’s an alligator–

HCB: [laughs]

ES: And like you’ve already decided you’re wanting to be married, like, exactly you’re already laughing. Like, this is a great premise already. We’re already on the right foot.

HCB: Because you wouldn’t have talked about it ahead of time.

ES: No, not at all, ever.

HCB: You just get there with your character, and away we go.

ES: Exactly. And what’s beautiful is that you hold on to that want. Like, you get to hold on to it. Even if you don’t think it’s going to work, it will. It’ll turn into a wonderful scene.

HCB: And aren’t there so– just hearing you talk about this, I’m making so many…seeing so many connections to the world that we live in or maybe more so not seeing connections, right? So in how many environments is a principle of yes, and common. In how many environments in our daily, you know our day-to day work, in our, you know, the corporate environments that we work in, or the non-profit environments that we work in, or even the friendly family environments that we live in, how often is yes, and the only rule?

ES: Oh, yeah.

HCB: I would venture to say, that probably, you know, maybe we’re hearing things other than yes, and.

ES: Definitely.

HCB: And so, how cool to utilize that?

ES: Yeah. For sure. It’s so refreshing. It’s just so, it is, like, I mean, it is the most rewarding, as far, like,  as a person trying to interact with another person, right away you just feel like, “This is it!” And it’s not like this is an artform where everybody is just patting you on the back, like, “Excellent! Great job!” When you get into it, like, there’s some critical elements. Like, it’s still a performance medium.

HCB: Well, it can be kind of intimidating. I would think.

ES: Oh, sure. For sure. It is hard. So when I started taking improv classes three years ago, almost to the t, like, actually maybe almost exactly, I thought I was gonna be like so good at it. [laughs] Because I’m kind of confident in that way. I was like, “I’m a musician, I’m on stage all the time.”

ES: Yeah. A teacher.

HCB: “I’m smart. I’m funny. This is gonna be great. I’m gonna wow them. They’re gonna send me right to the top. Put her in a show.” [laughs] And I was really bad.

HCB: Interesting.

ES: I was really bad because I’m a controller, I really like to plan things, I really struggle when I think somebody’s doing something wrong, because I like rules because I think it keeps us on like an even playing field. Because there are idiots in this world. And rules help us to just manage the different levels of who’s doing what.

HCB: Interesting.

ES: So, I don’t know whether that’s the correct way of going about life, but that’s definitely been, like, a mantra of mine.

HCB: Yeah. Okay.

ES: Improv has definitely…

HCB: Shaken that up a little bit.

ES: Broken it up and like, like, those were like calcified parts of my brain. Improv was like, “No. Nope. You’re just gonna have to deal with someone who you think is breaking a quote “rule” in improv because like classes, you take improv classes, they say “In this exercise, this happens, and you’re going for this thing.” And, like, that wouldn’t happen, but it was still a great scene. But I would struggle so much with that. It’s like, “But–”

HBC: I didn’t get to do what we’re supposed to be doing!

ES: “–you didn’t, you didn’t, you didn’t follow the directions right!” And, like, whoo, that was a hard thing for me to let go of.

HBC: Huh.

ES: Took a long time. And then, you know, the control thing, like really being in the moment and feeling like I look like an idiot was hard. But such a great thing [laughs].

HBC: Yeah.

ES: Because nothing bad happens [laughs] and, like, even if you have a bad scene, even if you have a whole bad show, what happens? Nothing.

HBC: Yeah.

ES: [laughs] Like, you still have your health and mind and friends and fa– it’s like, who cares? And that, that really was great for me. It helps other people with anxiety.

HBC: Huh. Interesting.

ES: I’ve just spoken to other people who, because they get to really be in their body and occupy that space and use it as a tool and feel, like, immediate consequences of their choices in a positive way. Like, If I do this, I totally have, like, as much reign over this situation as the other people. So it’s super empowering and it is meant to be joyful. Like, so, especially, like, for our work that we do in recovery it is– a lot of the work, you know, the work that happens, reflecting on yourself, feeling like mistakes are okay, like, that’s another thing we say. Mistakes are gifts. No big deal. Like, step back, keep going.

HBC: Yeah, use it even.

ES: And that’s so relatable. Yeah. And that’s exactly– like, I did an interview with somebody who used the example that, like, in a scene, let’s say somebody comes on and they’re in a coffee shop, and they say, “Welcome to Starbooks”, and then it’s like, uh, I meant Starbucks, but then it becomes, like, there’s a Starbucks run by ghosts.

HBC: Yeah. [laughs]

ES: Exactly! How funny! How great is that scene now!

HBC: That’s awesome.

ES: But, like, that was a mess-up. And that was something that used to just, like, derail– it would wreck me. I was like, it’s supposed to be Starbucks! Like, couldn’t handle it. But now it’s like, How amazing. What a gift!

HBC:  Yeah. And now we take a whole new route.

ES: Exactly. And we’re in it together. Like, it’s not all on me.

HBC: How cool. And so you all– you mentioned being in some, in recovery centers. And you are hoping to, or maybe already are, moving into working with incarcerated populations, is that right?

ES: Yeah, definitely. We have a lot of goals for our programs. We’re a small organization so we’re definitely trying to grow at a pace that keeps it–

HBC: Sustainable.

ES: Good. Mhm. We want quality programs.

HBC: Okay. So, what does that look like?

ES: What program growth looks like?

HBC: Yeah.

ES: Right now it looks like juggling.

HBC: Okay.

ES: It looks like having a lot of conversations with people. Sometimes it’s cold calls. Like, I just cold-called Bridges, which is the nonprofit here for the deaf and hard of hearing population.

HBC: Yeah!

ES: They do amazing work. They are such a hub, such a resource for that community.

HBC: They’re fantastic.

ES: And to serve our part of our mission that says to make improv more accessible to isolated populations, I thought, Well, wow, this population should totally be able to take an improve class, but it’s not like a person who’s hard of hearing or deaf could just sign up for a class, probably not somebody who’s signing up at the front. Okay. How do we do this? And, like, that hasn’t completely landed yet, but we’re working on it. And that was just, I called them and, like, the right person answered. And, and she– because I launched into this, like, “Hi, my name’s Emma and I’m doing this thing, and la la la la la,” and she goes, “Stop right there, I’m into it.” [laughs] And wow, that worked!

HBC: What a fantastic answer!

ES: And she’s, she’s so great. She’s a performer herself and, totally, she was, like, “Yes, this sounds like a great idea,” so we get to work on that. And then our recovery program, that’s led by my friend Allison Summers, who’s an improviser at Third Coast Comedy Club with me, and she was doing that already as a volunteer in recovery centers and so her work has really informed, like, how our program has developed and grown. And then, again, that’s just sort of reaching out to the people I know in the nonprofit community. And then we’re in the process of– because when you make a program, if you want facilitators, like we need, that’s the only thing that we need is people who know what they’re doing, we also have to develop the training program alongside of it.

HBC: Right. Right.

ES: So, that’s what we’re doing right now. We’re sort of, Okay, where can we send people? Now let’s get the right people in there.

HBC: Okay. And then in addition to your work with Unscripted you also are a music educator. Tell us a little about that.

ES: Yeah, so I also, I teach at an elementary school in Nashville. I teach there two days a week. And then I also am the music educator for three different smaller nonprofit arts groups, all chamber ensembles, so that would be Intersection, Chatterbird, and Alias. And I do a variety of things with them. I was at W.O. Smith Music School for four years before this, so I still get to, through Intersection, I wrote a contemporary music creation curriculum for Intersection, and we teach that at W.O. Smith. So I still get to be at W.O. Smith with the students that I’ve known, that’s such a great community, I’m so thankful to still be a part of it there. Yeah, and I, I just generally love program development.

HBC: Interesting.

ES: [laughs] And everything it comes with. So—

HBC: No, I mean but truthfully, I mean, there– it’s not just as easy as just having an idea and running with it. There is so much that goes into good program development.

ES: No. Truly. Mhm.

HBC: There is so much.

ES: Yeah. And I just geek out about it. I love it so much.

HBC: Well, that’s important.

ES: [laughs]

HBC: That’s important. And you historically were a music educator. Is that right?

ES: Mhm. Yeah. I think my love for program development actually stemmed from my, like, very first job. It was K-12, like elementary school music, middle school band, high school band, I started a choir there, I coached there, like, it was a teeny little school.

HBC: Yeah.

ES: And I came in– it’s not like they didn’t have anything. They had a band program that played at football games. But their elementary program was pretty light. It was just a person who didn’t have that background who’d done it before me and so I got to write the curriculum and prepare all materials and really develop the program. I mean that and, like, developing a music program in a school is even more than, like, making a handbook. That is, like, showing up to basketball games and showing your face, and saying, like, “Hi! I care you about. You care about music.” And that was a big, big part of it, was just, like, integrating it into the community that it was part of. And that’s, that is, like, my number one rule for program development, is that, like, every program in every community is different so the first step is listening and learning and observing.

HBC: And so you’re able to take those best practices into Unscripted’s soon to be additional program development.

ES: Definitely.

HBC: Interesting.

ES: Yeah. Which is why we’re growing slowly and really intentionally.

HBC: Yeah, but that’s– yeah, absolutely. So tell us a little bit about some of the SHEshakers that have formed your journey, your path. Sometimes we call them SHEroes, I think that’s one of my favorite terms.

ES: [laughs] That is cute.

HBC: Tell us– thank you, thank you. Tell us a little—

ES: In an empowered way. It’s cute in an empowered way.

HBC: Thank you. Empoweredly cute.

ES: Yes, yes, yes.

HBC: I like that. Tell us about some of who those SHEshakers are for you.

ES: Yeah. I love this question because at first it’s like, ooh, there are millions!

HBC: Yeah.

ES: But then when I really think about it, like, the SHEshakers in my life who have really influenced me the most have, have been like my peers, or people just right above me.

HBC: Huh. Yeah.

ES: I mean, I have to give props to my mom, like, I think she’s so smart and did such a great job of showing me a woman who values education and I was just talking to my sister about this on the phone earlier, about, she really–like, she never patronized us in our thoughts when we were younger. I mean, kids have opinions and sometimes adults flippantly just, like, toss them aside. But kids have real opinions, they’re just kid opinions—

HBC: Yeah, totally.

ES: –and experiences, and those are all very, very real, they’re just real in that, in that context.

HBC: Right.

ES: And I always got that message from my mom.

HBC: How meaningful, for sure.

ES: For sure. And it wasn’t like, “Woah, this is tragic”, it was just like, “You are experiencing that”–

HBC: Validated.

ES: Yeah. Absolutely. And that was a norm for us that we realized later was not the norm for a lot of people. So, it was just one of those moments, so definitely my mom. I mean my sisters, the women in my family in general. Big influences. But also like, just, like, the woman who was the president of my band fraternity ahead of me. And just, like, watching her do her thing and then being able to step into the role behind her and having that as an example. In Nashville, I have to say I have, right now, like, Stephanie Silverman is the Executive Director of the Belcourt. I think she is just remarkable, I love talking to her, in all the moments I think she is just great, I have everything to say about her. I just recently, like, last year I worked for a nonprofit and my boss was a– she was, like, the team lead but she was my boss, a younger woman that I was, and that had never happened before. It was so funny. She is actually, she was a classmate of one of my former students at Belmont.

HBC: Ooo!

ES: Did you say who or ooo?

HBC: I said, ooo.

ES: Ooo! And so I was– there was never a moment that I thought, like, Oh, she’s younger, she has no idea what she’s doing. She’s so great. It was such a– it just felt wonderful to be, like, led by this, like, younger outstanding woman who is going to just tear it up in the nonprofit world or education or social jus– I’m not even sure, the sky’s limit for her. She’s going to do great, great things. And then I mentioned Allison Summers, she’s a great influence of mine. She’s a good friend, and she, in the improv world, like, improv is typically very male-centric. Lotta dudes in there.

HBC: I was gonna ask that, because I wasn’t sure what the gender breakdown looked like.

ES: Yeah. It’s, it’s a lotta dudes. It’s a lotta dudes in plaid shirts. [laughs] Like, you go to an ipmrov show, you’re gonna see some plaid button-ups. Allison is a real strength for the female community and we improvise at Third Coast Community club, Marathon Village, and she’s such a supporter of women who audition. She runs the all, like, she coaches the all-female improve troupe.

HBC: Oh, interesting.

ES: She’s just, she so actively fights against, like, putting other women down in that scenario. It’s like really not a competition she’s just really bolstering women up and I– she just, she lives by it, like it’s definitely be example and I just think that’s so fantastic. And because of that, like, I think that Nashville has– this is anecdotal, I have no statistics to back this up–

HBC: Sure.

ES: But it feels like we have more women going out for, like, auditioning for teams at the club or forming teams or just becoming sort of, like, the people on the team to watch. It’s just, it’s been, it’s been really cool.

HBC: That’s awesome.

ES: Yeah.

HBC: Well one thing I’m really interested in hearing you talk a little about is you are the first guest on SHEspeaks that is soon to be a boss SHE mom.

ES: [laughs] Alright.

HBC: So congratulations, first of all–

ES: Thank you.

HBC: to the, this little baby that I’ve been lovingly referring to as Poppy–

ES: Uh-huh [laughs]

HBC: who will be here in August, right?

ES: Mhm. That’s right, August 5th.

HBC: August 5th. And so I’m just really interested in hearing your thoughts on this new season of life for you, this transition, what is it like, what does it feel like, where’s your mind, and I know that you’re having a son, and so I’m interested in hearing too, as a, as a boss SHE, if I can use that as a noun, what are you thinking about already even just in this pregnancy seaons?

ES: Yeah. It’s something that I think about a lot.

HBC: I’m not surprised.

ES: [laughs] Yeah, I mean, when you get pregnant you never not think about being pregnant.

HBC: Yeah. Sure. Sure.

ES: Yeah. That’s definitely there. So my husband and I joked, you know, gender reveal parties are things that happen all over the place, and that’s not really, like, our style necessarily, that’s no judgement on people who throw them because babies deserve all the celebration.

HBC: All the celebrations.

ES: So I’m into that. But we were, we joked, and I don’t know, we might still do it, but we joked about having an It’s a Feminist Party regardless of the sex of the baby.

HBC: I love it.

ES: And so, I think that I loved finding out but it is not something that I treat, like, super sacred.

HBC: Yeah, sure.

ES: Everything about having a baby feels like it could be super sacred and it could be. I was just saying the other day, like, “If I decide that no one gets to step foot in his room until October, that is the rule and you have to abide by it. And that’s just the way it is.”

HBC: That’s it. That’s the decree.

ES: And so there are things like that but telling people that I was pregnant was a big deal, but telling people that it’s a boy doesn’t feel– because that is not the greatest determinor of this person going into the world.

HBC: Absolutely. Absolutely.

ES: He will, I hope, just be a kind, good person and curious and brave and all these things that I, that I hope to put out in this world–

HBC: That you would hope regardless of the baby’s sex.

ES: Regardless of the baby’s sex. Exactly, exactly.

HBC: For sure, for sure.

ES: And so, and how much pressure is that to be like, “It’s a boy. He’ll be a boy and he will”–

HBC: “He’s a hunter.” Yeah, it’s just too much.

ES: Yeah. And it’s just like, “What are you talking about?” And my husband’s not a man who, like, led that sort of macho male masculine life like that, of that sort of storybook hero blah blah blah.

HBC: Yeah.

ES: He is a hero, but a different kind. [laughs] So it was a little bit intimidating to think about having a, because I, I really identify as a woman and female and really love talking about it.

HBC: Yeah.

ES: Love talking about being a woman and what that means for me and the world around me.

HBC: Yeah.

ES: And so now it’s like, but he has a whole experience in that way, too.

HBC: And identity.

ES: Yeah. And I don’t know what that is. So I’ve just decided to be really curious and open and, like, forever I must be willing to be, like, as much of a support and guide in whatever he needs me to be.

HBC: Sure.

ES: But will I be putting up portraits of Susan B. Anthony in his room? Yeah. Yeah. For sure.

HBC: Great.

ES: And a variety of other– Beyonce will probably make an appearance. [laughs]

HBC: Well and those are, you know, strong women and their stories and their voices and powerful women and women who have made an impact on our communities, like, those are, like, the tenents of your household.

ES: Definitely.

HBC: So that’s, that kind of language, those kinds of stories, those kinds of, you know, that path I imagine would be a part of your child’s upbringing regardless of how many children you have, what sex they are, you know, anything in between.

ES: Very common. Right. Yeah definitely… Oh, I was just going to tell a story and I forgot what it was.

HBC: Oh shoot. I’m so sorry. Was it about Beyonce, maybe? You were saying pictures of Beyonce.

ES: Oh. [laughs] I was gonna say, I have this print that is of Venus, which is, you know, very buxom, like, fertitlity, like, and it’s art, it’s a drawing print, and I was like, “Let’s put it in the baby’s room”, and David was like, “I don’t know.” And I was like, “I’ll remove it before he really knows!” but I just want, like, really strong, like, positive female body image in this young man’s mind.

HBC: Totally. Body positivity all the way.

ES: All the way! Yeah, body positivity, sex positivity, whatever it is. Yeah. So. The only thing that I’ll really encourage him is to play the trombone. I just–

HBC: Okay. Love trombone players, huh?

ES: Yeah, I just like the trombone. I was a brass player but not the trombone and I just–

HBC: Of all the fights to fight, Emma, I’m not sure that– but, but I, I will support you. I will support Poppy and his musical endeavors.

ES: I’ll just subliminally, yup. [laughs]

HBC: Maybe they’ll be some images we can maybe commission an artist to paint some very strong women playing trombones for his nursery.

ES: Yes!

HBC: Like strong women trombone theme.

ES: Yeah. I’m sure that’s something at Pottery Barn Kids. [laughs]

HBC: Let’s ask David. Definitely. [laughs]
