This episode is brought to you by depression….because it’s late and I’m sorry about that. The death of RGB hit me a little harder than expected, and I needed to unplug from the internet tubes to keep my sanity intact–but I’m here now! This is a great episode, and I think it’ll take your mind off the madness. This week, I talk to the incredibly funny Maria DeCotis about her phenomenal Andrew Cuomo lip-sync videos. I’ve always known Maria as a funny stand up act, but these videos have catapulted her to the top of Twitter! Millions of people have laughed with her, and for that we are grateful. They say laughter is the best medicine, and Maria has been dolling out doses to combat this pandemic. For that, we thank her…now check out the interview! Just a reminder, before we get rolling on this week’s episode, I want to encourage you to register to vote and request a mail-in ballot if you are unable to vote in person due to the pandemic. This election has just become even more important than ever. Don’t sit this one out. Make sure you leave a review and subscribe to the show on your favorite podcast platform.

Another gender reveal party has set California and Oregon ablaze– turning the skies an apocalyptic orange. As we hobble towards the last four months of 2020, wondering what surprises lie in store–I urge you to vote. The environmental rollbacks this administration has implemented will only increase the climate crisis. This crisis doesn’t limit its effects on wildfires, but pandemics, displacement, and economic loss are it’s victims as well. So before we get into this week’s episode, I just want to remind you to register to vote and request a mail-in ballot if you are unable to vote in person due to the pandemic. In this episode, I talk with Vijay Parthasarathy of Stardust Insights. Vijay specializes in helping brands incorporate social action and ethical causes in their marketing strategy. I met him through Lunchclub, and I had to have him on the show. I hope you enjoy this pretentious conversation.

While you’re preoccupied with (or completely ignoring) coronavirus, I’m still worried about the other disasters we need to address once this pandemic is yesterday’s news. People seem to think that I’ll run out of material once a vaccine is in our veins–nay I say! I’m in the podcasting game for the long haul, and the world’s problems don’t just amount to viruses and elections. Let’s face it; the world has a copious amount of problems. If this lockdown has taught us anything, it’s that we can’t ignore these issues anymore. This episode takes a look at the giant elephant in the room, nuclear energy. As of today, Sept 5, 2020, the Doomsday Clock is on 2-minutes to midnight, and let’s just say The Trump Administration isn’t shying away from nuclear weapon stockpiles. On this episode, I enlist the help of my fellow female filmmaker, Nancy Wolfe, to help discuss this terrifying topic. Nancy has been working on the documentary Rocky Flats for four years. It’s a film that explores the invisible killer, and it unravels to some earth-shattering truths about America’s relationship with nuclear waste. You’re going to learn a lot of things you wish you didn’t. Make sure you leave a review and subscribe to the show on your favorite podcast platform.

I miss going to the movies. I’m trying to remember the last movie I saw in theaters. (Uncut Gems?) It feels like a lifetime ago. I would love to go back, but I don’t feel safe sitting in a room with strangers for two hours. I’ll wear a mask–but how am I supposed to eat my popcorn? There are so many streaming content options, why bother spending $20 for a night of anxiety? I’m sure other people are thinking the same thing when it comes to movie night. Will going to the movies be a thing of the past, and as a filmmaker–should I be adapting to that reality? I had to talk to my optimistic and talented friend, Matt Braunsdorf. Matt is a director, cinematographer, and editor with an undying love for the art form and the talent to create masterpieces of his own. I knew that I could spill my industry anxieties onto him–and he’d reassure me that movies are going to come back better than ever. I hope he’s right!
