    Rec Room: Rest of the Recs

    09/11/2018 Duration: 29min

    I'm reccin' the rest of the podcasts I know in town! And it's a really big list, so strap in! Which, if you're listening in your car, I shouldn't have to tell you. So unsafe. Take some time and listen through to find some new podcasts to support, because this one is all wrapped up like a corpse in a hotel rug! Thank you to everyone who supported me over the last two years! It's been so much fun getting to learn more about the community I am forcing myself into!

    Episode 65: Clare Roy

    02/11/2018 Duration: 43min

    Performer, writer and poet Clare Thompson Roy is a strong advocate for “doing the work” for the love of it and not accepting gigs based on money alone. Which is great because she moved to Phoenix. Clare sat with me outside of Urban Beans to talk about working with managers and agents, growing as an artist, and succeeding by not doing what she was taught. Clare has a blog and an instagram page where she shares visual art and poetry called starvinglittleartist that is definitely worth a follow!

    Shandi, Allison, and Jessie are three theatre practitioners who joined forces to create the Blood n'Blush podcast, combining true crime, makeup, and current events. Like a Voltron of shit you drown in on Youtube. We met up at good ol' Urban Beans to talk about acknowledging 2nd jobs as a part of an artist's life, accepting praise from your peers whether or not you agree, and being shocked that anyone actually listens to their weird ass podcast. Shandi Ilyse is currently in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde at Theatreworks, which runs Friday-Saturday-Sunday through October 27. You can also downlod their friend's narrative podcast All in my Head starting on Halloween. And of course listen to Blood n' Blush every Monday on all your fav social media and pod sites.

    Something spooky is brewing in the Rec Room, and I don’t just mean the Eastern European Milk Liquor I found a recipe for on stumbleupon in college. Our podcast rec’ this week is Blood n’ Blush! Blood n’ Blush is a podcast that takes a deep dive into the two worlds where you find those things, namely true crime and cosmetics. It’s a very fun podcast and the three hosts will be guest on a episode in the near future! I also recommend local haunted house attraction Sanctum of Horror, even though I fucking forget the name on the recording, which is a great haunted house outside of superstition springs mall this season!

    Holly Pyle is a vocal artist known for her use of looping, which does not in fact relate to the production of any breakfast cereals, so those questions have now been omitted. We met after her gig at the Vig Arcadia to talk about discovering jazz, struggling with ego, and what happens when you have to play tequila music. Holly has just released an album with House of Stairs available on Bandcamp, and they are jumping right into planning their next.

    Actor and improvisor Jacque Arend says the changes she is making right now are her beginning her "second life." Fearing witchcraft, I threw her into the murkey depths of the river, where lo she did sink. But first we talked in thr lobby of the TCA about not getting encouragement to do what you love, craving drama after a life of comedy, and how easy it is to teach without really knowing what the hell your doing.
