S03 Episode 2: Linda Lenzke, Writer, Showrunner

Episode image card


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.

S03 Episode 7: American Trash, Graphic Design

I found American Trash while looking at stories located in the Madison area on Instagram. I liked the style. It reminded me of the type of skateboard art that has always appealed to me. I sent him a message and we ended up meeting each other at the Johnson Public House.

S03 Episode 6: Gavin Folgert, Animator

Listen: Apple Podcasts | RadioPublic | Google Podcasts | YouTube
I went to a local animation meet up in February and afterward Gavin had posted a stop-motion short he made on the meet up's Facebook event page. I've only made 2D animation and have always wanted to try stop-motion. So, I reached out to Gavin to learn more about what he does. He met with me at the Colectivo Coffee Shop on Monroe St. After the interview we got together and made this little claymation short film. https://youtu.be/lIOPX95zI2Y

Also, another one of my pop-up interviews, I meet fabric artist Stacy Stone.

Louis Prima.

The lyrics to the song "Just a Gigolo" by Louis Prima are actually really depressing sounding when you write them out. But damn if it isn't a fun song to belt out!
