Lyssa knows many worlds and shares it all! We chat Maggie Flanagan Studios, the publishing world, social media, server skills, open mic nights, the magic of asking, and self producing her comedic and vulnerable hit live talk show “The Bitch Seat.”
Singer/Actress Shannon chats with us about moving to New York and falling into the unhealthy lifestyle survival jobs can lead to. She also opens up about what it’s like to pursue a career very focused on appearance while having to undergo three major face changing jaw surgeries.
We chat with army brat turned actor, Ryan, who proves time and again that being second choice ain’t bad. URTAs, The Flea, Cheap Tickets for Fancy Shows, and Grad Schools are just some of the in depth topics we dabble in during our sit down.
