LA Werk It Weekend, Stump Dan, Stunts and Special FX



E61 – Come play! We break down our weekend in downtown LA at the historic Ace Hotel’s Werk It women’s podcasting conference. Hear our lecture takeaways and highlights scootering in skirts, meeting famous podcaster Georgia Hardstark of My Favorite Murder, and hanging with Dessa, well-known rapper, author, and TED Talk lecturer at the closing party. She went deep with us into the neuroscience behind love and we talk a little bit about both of our relationship obsessions. Then we come back to Julianne’s cottage and have a jam session with Dan Mahony, playing the game Stump Dan the Guitar Man. He is so good! See if he gets stumped by Lizzo, Afroman, Coldplay, or Queens of the Stone Age, and watch the rest of the performance on our Facebook Live video in our FB Group. We take a turn into the behind the scenes of tv and film as Weens talks about her dream of working in stunts. What is her connection with the Sega Fighting Vipers commercial and main character design? Should she take a stunt driving course? What did she do in The Rookie’s Season 2 trailer? Hear her interview with Special Effects coordinator Bob Calvert and one of his craziest memories working with Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny on The X-Files. And find out where on the risk-taking scale Mouse is these days.

Mouse Doggy Dog You Need a Jobby Job



E58 – Weens talks work on Warner Brothers hit show The Rookie and Mouse discusses writing her garden book. How do you reset goals and hit new writing deadlines? We get talking about first jobs as Mouse’s son starts to save up money. Guess who was the babysitter, camp counselor, telemarketer, candy shop girl, frozen yogurt jerk, urgent care receptionist, and bowling alley waitress?  It wasn’t all work either with motorcycle rides, whipped cream huffs, office looting, bomb threats to Treasure Island, and lying about lobsters. We sidetrack to discuss Once Upon A Time in Hollywood and agree that the Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt characters, and the Manson Ranch scene, is scarily reminiscent of a strange summer in our childhood during which our dad trained to be a stuntman at the artist colony Zorthian Ranch, full of nude models and pig pens. Hear a list of friends’ and listeners’ first jobs and enjoy this funny, weird little trip down memory lane.
