If you’re like me, every so often, you’re overcome by the reality that you have some rather extraordinary friends. Right?
Lately, I’ve found myself having 2 to 5 hour conversations with a number of them. Their focus is broad and includes disciplines like electro/mechanical engineering and motherhood which may not be immediately considered “artsy” but becomes so after a few minutes of exposition.
Some I’ve met are effectively strangers like Paul Lorio who I found common ground with almost immediately. Then you have the usual suspects like Jeremy Cohenour, Gregg Firman, and Frank Baum who are “sitcom favorites”.
Each conversation, though a net positive, initially left me with this strange mix of satisfaction and missed opportunity. Like I said, I have some pretty amazing friends. They were around when I needed them in high school and even now that we’ve all gone our own ways.
Each time we reconnect, I’m given pause by how everyone has grown since our last interaction. To notice the overlap and differences. I still marvel at how we’re all able to relate after years of ZERO COMMUNICATION.
After thinking (and saying), “Man, I wish I would have recorded this!” more than I care to admit, I thought it was time to do something about it. So… “Overexposed” was born.
“Overexposed” is a podcast that speaks with artists across disciplines with the hope of uncovering a universal truth. A truth that might help our community sleep, live, and love “better”. If nothing else, it should prove to be a decent to good support group. 🙂 (I am Jack’s raging bile duct.)
We’re recording the pilot tonight. If you see it posted in the next few days, you’ll know it went well. If not, we’ll come back and cue the pomp and circumstance one more time. Whatever outcome… stay tuned!
