Welcome to the department!

Hosted by the multi-talented Naomi Snieckus, Firecracker Department is a sit-down with the brightest minds and most charismatic women in entertainment, representing the full spectrum of ‘the biz’ But despite their showbiz superpowers, none can resist the targeted charm of their host. With each interview, Naomi and her guest kick off their shoes, pour a glass of wine and begin a very informal conversation, that is real and often intensely-personal. It’s funny, frank talk about success, life in the public eye, the victories, embarrassments and vagaries of fame.

Second City Live Panel!

Hey Firecrackers, welcome to Second City! We're here at my old stomping grounds for a LIVE podcast panel with some real comedic geniuses! Joining us on stage for this chat is Ayaka Kinugawa, Musical Director for Second City Theatrical, Carly Heffernan, current Director of the main stage show 'The Best Is Yet To Come Undone', Teresa Pavlinek, writer, producer, and star of her own show called 'The Jane Show', and last, but not least, current star of the main stage show, Stacey McGunnigle! We're talking everything from how annoying it is to be asked "What is it like being a woman in comedy?" to how they keep themselves creatively fuelled. This chat was inspiring, insightful, and most importantly, absolutely hilarious. Enjoy!
