In the fall of 2011, Kristin Lajeunesse left her job and cozy apartment to pursue her dream of traveling around the country to dine at every vegan restaurant in the US. The trip took her two years during which she visited 547 restaurants, and now she’s published her lovely memoir of the trip, Will Travel For Vegan Food.
Kristin’s journey is a real inspiration to me, so I am thrilled to have her as my guest today. Let me know how you like the show and tell a friend!
Ability Shirts is a nonprofit organization that supports individuals with “unique abilities.” Adam Farris, Director of Ability Shirts, prefers to use the term to categorize those who are considered to have disabilities.
Ability Shirts sells awareness products—some of which are handmade or made by individuals with unique abilities.
Adam’s unique abilities give him the perspective to lead a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving those who share them. Adam hopes to have a retail storefront in the future to sell more awareness products, and to hire other talented young men and women with unique abilities.
I met Scott Teplin pretty soon after I moved to Brooklyn and quickly became a fan of his artwork. I’m really fascinated and inspired by his use of crowdfunding and his most recent Kickstarter brought in well above his goal: $26,417.00! A chat we had recently in our local coffeeshop, Steeplechase, inspired me to invite him to be on the podcast, and it turned out to be a really great show. Check out Scott’s résumé here. It’s pretty impressive and I didn’t do such a great job with his intro on the show. Saying stuff is hard.
I had a great time chatting with author Isaac Oliver about Intimacy Idiot, his debut collection of essays which is already scoring kick-ass reviews. Also on this show, a track from my new remix album and music from CACAW.
Comedienne Tranna Wintour joins me on the podcast today and we chat about her one woman show Trantasy which opens next week at Montreal Fringe. Though I’ve been aquatinted with Tranna for quite some time, this was our first chance to really chat. Enjoy!
In other news, I am getting this podcast going for real again. Look for episodes every week. Next week’s guest will be author and vegan goddess, Victoria Moran.
Author T. Cooper is my guest on the podcast today. We talk about his latest book, Changers, and its accompanying website. T. is really fun to talk to and I’m thrilled to share this interview with you. Enjoy!
Songwriter and poet Jeremy Bass is my guest on this episode of the ol’ podcast. As I post this I realize it’s a touch out of date, but the timing is perfect to tell you about Jeremy’s new Kickstarter project to raise money for a pair of EPs he will be working on soon. Links to everything can be found below. Thanks for listening!
In the realm of my solo work, you can read more on my website and keep and eye out for my new single “Invocation” out August 26th and the new album will be out on October 14th with a release show and party at Dixon Place here in NYC. Mark your calendars! I’d love to see you there!
