MikeyPod 307 | Musician Sabrina Chap

Sabrina Chap‘s brilliant new album,  Postcards from the Rearview Mirror, is a coming-of-age radio musical. Weaving prophetic monologues, theatrical soundscapes, and 10 songs, it tells the story of two queer teens who escape the violence of their homes for the bright lights of Hollywood. I sat down with Sabrina to talk about her process, her passion, and how she used an unfamiliar instrument to access a different songwriting style. I had an absolute blast with this conversation!

MikeyPod 306 | Activist Musician Kiirstin Marilyn

Kiirstin Marilyn has a new album coming out, There Are No Cats in America, and I couldn’t wait to have her back on the podcast to talk about it! She fills us in on the new album, and we got really deep into the idea that there is always something we can do as individuals to make the world a better place, even when it feels like the world is falling apart. This was a really fun interview that went some places I wasn’t expecting!

MikeyPod 305 | Podcaster Aseloka Smith

Aseloka Smith and I crossed paths at a virtual meeting of the NYC Podcast Meetup, where I learned about her absolutely gorgeous podcast, The Colored Girl Beautiful, a narrative podcast exploring the beautiful juxtapositions of black womanhood. I was fascinated by Aseloka’s unique narrative style, so I was really excited to discuss her process on the show. We cover everything from the very first seed of her idea, through its development in the Google Podcast Creator Program, all the way through publishing and beyond!

MikeyPod 304 Bonus | Extended Interview with Soul Eubanks

Hey there $5 Patrons and not-yet-Patrons!

This bonus conversation with Soul Eubanks was so vital that I decided to make it available everywhere instead of just to subscribers. Soul’s perspective on how issues of race inform his animal rights activism stopped me in my tracks. So good. I know you will love this conversation!

If you are not yet a patron and would like to learn more about how it works, you can learn more here. Check out the main podcast interview with Soul Eubanks here.

Thanks for being here and for listening!

MikeyPod 304 | Creator and Animal Advocate Soul Eubanks

I knew I would relate to this week’s guest Soul Eubanks when I came across his social media accounts and invited him to be on the show. After all, he’s an artist who uses many different mediums to communicate his passion for veganism. I love the way he talks about how he creates work for the love of creating it, as that’s an an energy I would love to more fully embody with my own work. We went into the journey that led him to animal advocacy and so much more!
