Ep 35: David Pasquesi (Actor/improviser)

I identify as an empath and I can spot a rare show like Lodge 49 and a rare talent like David Pasquesi's in which everyone is playing at the top of their game, and especially David. I was so impressed by David's authentic performance in Lodge 49 that I had to reach out to him for an interview, and I am very glad I did. We talked about his long and varied improv theater career i...

Ep 29: Kilynn Lunsford (Musician)

Philadelphia’s Kilynn Lunsford had been conceiving her first solo album since she was a young teen. Growing up through the MTV era of Missy Elliot, Timbaland and the Swing Mob collective, and drawn towards its “sometimes ridiculous, but overloaded” qualities, she found herself returning to that state of emerging adulthood when the moment for a solo record finally arose.

Written over four y...

I had seen John over the years on TV and film and always enjoyed his work. I used to be a one on one worker with kids and teens with disabilities which drew me to to his work on “Speechless” which I found comically and authentically true to life. I enjoyed all of the actors but John’s performance felt very true to himself. I identify as an intuitive (like a poorer lazier more Jewish Rick Rubin) and can always get a sense of actors ...

Ep 22: Lennon Parham (Focus on Comedy)

I’ve seen Lennon in a bunch of stuff over the years and always loved their work, but there was something in "Minx" to me that transcended her in my opinion to the level of comic genius and genius performer. She embedded her character Shelly with pure authenticity, compassion, and true kindness, that almost came through the screen. These real life qualities also became very clear while speaking...

Ep 20: Ann Magnuson (Focus on Performance) 

I am going to keep this short and  sweet. Ann Magnuson is a national hero in my opinion and it was a profound pleasure in meeting her and getting to know her for a few hours. I generally do about 6 hours of research per guest and I stopped counting after 12 hour of researching about Ann. She has such an interesting life that it was hard to stop.  Ann was very generous ...

Ep 18: Ed Askew (Focus on Music Series) 

I was blown away after listening to Ed Askew's Album "Ask The Unicorn" about 15 years ago, which came out in 1968. Since then I've gotten to know his music a lot better and am a huge fan. He has such a pure and unique style. He fits into a few categories of music such as Psychedelic Folk,  Freak Folk, and Private Press Music. We spoke a few months ago after he unfortunately had a s...
