This is our monthly #SupernovaGivesBack show. All proceeds from this show will be donated to What It's Like Project, dedicated to destigmatizing mental illness through the arts. Additional donations are welcome.

The Supernova is Station Theater's signature improv form in which stories and discussion are molded and reshaped into original improvised content. The Supernova cast invites a special guest each week to tell true, personal stories in a one-on-one interview format. Guests vary week-to-week, ranging from traveling comedians, local celebrities, or even selected audience volunteers!

This week, we welcome Edward Odom, co-founder of What It's Like Project.

Edward received his Bachelor’s in Criminology from the University of Houston – Clear Lake, and his Master’s in Psychology concentrated in Behavorial Neuroscience also from the University of Houston – Clear Lake. He has been in recovery from substance abuse since 2009, and lives with Generalized Anxiety Disorder. In 2014, he lost his sister to a prescription drug overdose. In the realm of mental health and substance abuse, he has told his story to adolescents in efforts to dissuade them from continuing to abuse drugs. Part of his graduate curriculum included research studying the effects of an experimental compound on morphine and nicotine withdrawal syndrome. He currently works on a research team devoted to helping veterans take control of their diabetes. Edward has also been playing guitar since age 11 as his own form of artistic expression, and he hopes his playing will encourage others who struggle to express themselves musically.

Cast: Roger Anderson, Jason Mcelweenie, Brenda Valdivia, Calan Lambert, Chuck Stanfield, Kenneth Andrews, Keith Huang, Contessa Ola, and Antoine W.B.
