My chat with NYC Filmmaker, Brian Scott Mednick

Episode 177: Today I talk to filmmaker and author, Brian Scott Mednick about the art of filmmaking. I connected with him after sending a mass email to which he replied, excuse me, who are you? We talk about idols, divas, researching a book without the internet, rejections…. Oh, and somehow, I get Woody Harrelson and Woody Allen confused. It is a truly inspirational chat.

Episode 176: Today I chat with Shahin Zonoozi who is an Austin-based artist. He was actually my first manager at Starbucks when I started years ago. He is now living a new life in Texas, making fabulous art. It was great catching up with him. He is such a refreshing personality and his art reflects it. We talk about selling Ferraris, his inspiration, living in different states, his process, and why he needs to get a website, among other things.

My chat with Tamar Avishai, of The Lonely Palette

Episode 174: Today I chat with Tamar Avishai, the host of The Lonely Palette podcast, where she “returns art history to the masses, one painting at at time.” I really dig Tamar’s show, because it’s insightful, and she really has a way of making it interesting for non-artists. It was great to chat with her!


Michael Frank, Museum of BAD Art

Episode 173: Today I catch up with Michael Frank of the Museum of BAD Art in Somerville, Maryland. Interesting sidenote, we were doing the interview while news was breaking of the Insurrection of the Capitol. Only later would I find out how bad it really was.
