Sharon Bjyrd

Episode image This week I meet Sharon Bjyrd

Sharon is a painter who moved here from Chicago. She started out going to school for commercial art, which I realize is what we called it before it was graphic design. The story for the inspiration that started her interest in painting? Grace Jones. One of my favorite reasons so far. You can see more of her work on her Instagram.

Listen: Apple Podcasts | RadioPublic | Google Podcasts | YouTube
James Kreul has been very involved with films in Madison, he runs programs like The Rooftop Cinema at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art and the upcoming Mills Folly Microcinema at the Arts + Literature Laboratory to name a few. The first time I went to one of his underground film screenings was last year at Coney Island Studio and I knew I wanted to meet with him to be on the show. I finally got a chance to talk to him on the north side of Madison at Warner Park.

S03 Episode 2: Linda Lenzke, Writer, Showrunner

Listen: Apple Podcasts | RadioPublic | Google Podcasts | YouTube
Linda is a writer and blogger. She has a site called "Mixed Metaphors, Oh My!" that she has been doing since 2013. She joined a Facebook group called Madison Indie Filmmakers and after going to some of the meet-ups they encouraged her to start a new web series for one of the ideas she had. So she did. With the help of the people she met in this group, she is running a new show called "Hotel Bar". I met with her at the Madison Public Library downtown to ask her how this all happened.

Also, I share another one of the pop-up interviews I did at the Hibernation Liberation event. But the person only told me her first name. So, if anyone knows who she is please let her know that she's on the show for me.

Kelly is a writer who contacted me through the American Bandito Facebook page. She's written a book called "Om Namah..." available on Amazon. As she explains it's a story of healing from betrayal, discovering spiritual discernment, and the best ribs on the east side of Madison. We talk about the book while walking around the Atwood neighborhood in the fall of last year.

Plus, a segment from a series of pop-up interviews I did at the Hibernation Liberation event.
