Think of episode 52.5 with Sarah Momo Romero as a P.S. to episode 52. It’s a rapid fire q&a where I ask my guests the same twelve questions to hear the similarities and differences among artists of the same and different genres. Some sample questions: Do you check out other artists within your genre on social media? What’s your creative ritual? Do you have a ‘go-to’ person who you bounce ideas off of.

Let’s hear what this autho...

Today’s show wraps up my series on collaboration. It’s a tribute to art and to friendship. It’s about what happens when you’re on a roll, when you’re making strides, realizing your dream…and the unthinkable happens. What do you do? How do you go on? Do you go on?

If you’re just joining Her Process for the first time, today’s guest, Camilla Ochlan, has been on the show before with her Werewolf Whisperer series writing partner, Bonit...

I'm excited to be chatting with writer/director, Tina Cesa Ward and actor, Rachael Hip-Flores. These ladies first worked together in 2008 when Tina cast Rachael in her ground breaking web series, Anyone But Me. The show went on to win Indie Soap awards, a Clicker award for best drama, a Writers Guild Award for best Original New Media, and more. Rachael won a Streamy for her portrayal of series lead, Vivian. Clearly this was a p...

You’ve seen the hash tags #communityovercompetition and #collaborationovercompetition. Well, my guests today are giving those hash tags more than lip service…or tweet service? 

Today I’m chatting with authors Camilla Ochlan and Bonita Gutierrez. If you’ve been listening to the show for a while, you’ll recognize their names from episode 21.  And if you’re a fan of urban fantasy, you probably know them from their series, The Werewolf...

Last week I promised a deep dive into the process of creating music. To be more specific, recording music. Recording artist and songwriter, Drea, is back with me to do just that.

In the next fifteen minutes, you’ll hear about the recording of her last album, No Vacancy and how the process of recording her new music, including her latest release Hometown, is different. Part of it is that she’s in a different headspace, part of it is...

Back in episode 22, today’s guest, recording artist and songwriter, Drea, opened up to me about her experience as a victim of sexual assault. Today I’m checking back in with Drea in what is probably one of the most empowering episodes I will ever record.

In this episode, Drea talks about reclaiming ownership of her body, and who she is, through movement. And, she tells us how you can get in on this, too.

We talk about the affect th...

This episode of Her Process is for all of you artists out there for whom your art is not your day job. Maybe you’re waiting tables, personal training, substitute teaching…let’s just say your “fallback” job has become your main source of income.

I’m welcoming back singer/songwriter Katie Ferrara. If you haven't heard Katie's episode where we talk a lot about busking, it's episode 19.

It's the Her Process micro pod! Think of this bonus episode as a little P.S. to episode 44 featuring painter, creator, Ela Mella. She touches on the parts of her world that you don't see on instagram. And, if you've been listening to the show, you know that the micro pod consists of twelve questions I ask all of my guests. One of the questions is whether or not they check out other artists of their discipline on social ...

To introduce today’s artist, I’m going to take a description directly from her web site because it is just so perfect! Ela Mella is pun-loving painter and creator based in Los Angeles on a mission to spread love through art and unity through laughter.

In this episode Ela opens up and shares where that positivity came from and how living through the lowest low can really change a girl’s perspective.

We also talk about how LA, the ci...

Welcome back to the Her Process micro pod! These bonus episodes consist of the same twelve questions I ask all of my guests, rapid fire style.

I’m chatting with singer, songwriter, Dree Mon. Now, when you hear Dree Mon’s music it’s not what you typically think of when you hear the words “singer, songwriter”. Her style is described as “70s disco funk meets 90s R&B with a modern twist”. And her debut single Rebel Soul, along with the most fun video, is out now. And you can hear Rebel Soul end of this show!

After eight years in the music business, it was time for a rebra...

Welcome to the first episode of my special Her Process series on artists who are juggling the pursuit of art and parenthood. 

Between the two of them, today's guests have spent the better part of a decade…maybe longer…acting, writing, producing, and directing short films, features, and web series. I’m so happy to welcome Kathryn Bergh and Tanya Ihnen. 

In listening to this episode, I realized that while there’s great informatio...

    Sympathy Pains

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
