Comedy Bits: Danny Pudi

11/14/2019
More
We got some great questions from listeners for this episode with actor Danny Pudi (you might remember him from a little show called Community?). We find out what made Danny laugh the hardest on the set of Community and how he juggles new and old friendships - but we also talked about when Hollywood's going to finally write that screenplay for Danny about a half Indian, half Polish dancer growing up in Chicago. C'mon H-town, we want to see that! ☕️☕️☕️ Who doesn’t want free advice from people...

Classical Piano + YouTube: AyseDeniz

11/7/2019
More
Talk about using the powers of social media for good! Classical pianist and composer AyseDeniz has harnessed YouTube, Facebook and Instagram to help expose a new generation to classical music and make it cool again. There's nowhere and nothing she won't play, too - they've dropped a piano into Burning Man for her, they've dropped a piano into Cappodocia for her, she's mashed up Pink Floyd, Coldplay and it was all inspired by what a badass she thinks Franz Liszt was. This was a pretty cool...

Broadway, TV and Film actor Jay Klaitz took time away from his brand new (super cute) baby to chat with us in our third ever episode of Take Me To Coffee. We talked all things theatre (he is a legend of Broadway with Lend Me a Tenor, Rock of Ages and High Fidelity under his belt), why he volunteers his time as a mentor to younger people, what it was like to shoot on Jessica Jones and Vinyl and what's ahead for his new production company. ☕️☕️☕️ Who doesn’t want free advice from people that...

BONUS EPISODE #2: Our Very Second Episode with Christina Anthony of Mixed-ish

10/24/2019
More
Little did we all know that Christina Anthony's life was about to be forever changed, when she agreed to be our second test guest back in March of 2019 and sit down for coffee with us. She had just shot a backdoor pilot for a new show called Mixed-ish, but no one knew if it would be picked up. SPOILER ALERT: SHE'S SO FAMOUS NOW! But back in that moment, Christina sat on her bathroom floor in her Hollywood studio apartment and dished out hilarity and wisdom about what it means to never quit,...

Comedy: Dana Powell

10/17/2019
More
Modern Family. Veep. Bridesmaids. Dana Powell is a comedic powerhouse who has graced the screens of some of our favorite shows. Today, we're sitting down to coffee with her... well, no. Laying down to coffee with her? She did the whole episode in her bed in LA, so not really sure what the right thing is to say here. And by "with her", we mean Dana, her cat Daphne, her evil cat Cutters, her dog and her lizard. Together, we all dive into trying not to get eaten by coyotes at your survival job,...

Sports & Identity: Joon Lee

10/10/2019
More
Jess is stuck in the wilds of eastern Oregon, so Andrew helms the ship for an incredibly inspiring conversation with Joon Lee. Joon is a 24 year old Korean-American sportswriter for ESPN, and he takes us on a wild journey through his time at Bleacher Report, the representation inception that happened when he covered Chloe Kim and the Olympics in South Korea, and why pornstars are people too. Plus - our producer Emily Ho makes a special guest appearance! Cool stuff we talk about in the...

Wine: Amanda McCrossin aka Sommvivant

10/3/2019
More
Wine always feels fancy, but our guest Amanda McCrossin spends the hour answering our dumb questions and helping us feel like maybe it isn't something that far out of our reach. Plus - we get the top 3 Instagram tips from Amanda, who grew her own following from nothing to 25k, Jess trolls Andrew on their own podcast and we find out good legs don't mean the ass is going to be great too. ☕️☕️☕️ Who doesn’t want free advice from people that are wildly successful and probably more good looking...

Today we have coffee with the co-founders of The Zuckerberg Institute, Randi Zuckerberg's new initiative for entrepreneurs around the globe. We hear about Brian Patrick Murphy's biggest failure in business and what he learned from it, what it was like for Michael Littig to start a non-profit in a conflict zone, and we do a lot of talking about why the struggle is what to love the most when you're building something. ☕️☕️☕️ Who doesn’t want free advice from people that are wildly successful...

Activism: Idealist.org

Ami Dar, founder of Idealist.org, has always had one mission in life: connect the people who want to do good, and make it easier to do that good. Never was there such an inspiring episode as talking with he and their Director of Organizing, Abby Graf Subak about how they that happen through a job board, grad fairs and Idealist Days around the world.

Founding a Fitness Empire: Mark Fisher

9/26/2019
More
It seems like every Broadway friend of ours (including Andrew's wife!) keeps in shape at Mark Fisher Fitness. On our coffee date with the man himself, we found out that's because he is one smart dude, in addition to being a whacky, dada-loving unicorn. We chat about why Mark reads two plus books a week, how the Snatched emails have changed over the years, the ways in which running a business is like a rehearsal room and why Andrew and Jess now say "Skill Aquisition" every fourth sentence....

The Mughal Empire: Audrey Truschke

9/26/2019
More
Audrey Truschke has created a name for herself on Twitter but it's probably not for anything you'd guess. She's an academic and author whose specialty is Muslim & Hindu conflict, The Mughal Empire and Sanksrit. We get down and dirty to learn about the role of academics in censorship, why people are so upset about her research and who was a better cheater at games as a kid, Audrey or Jess? ☕️☕️☕️ Who doesn’t want free advice from people that are wildly successful and probably more good...

Female Empowerment: Laura Behnke

9/26/2019

Even though Jess and Andrew did a bit of birdwalking at the top of the episode, things got back on track quickly and we got to hear about Laura Behnke's incredible journey from television sportscaster who was owned by everyone else to entrepreneur and fashion icon who owned it all herself! This episode is a must-listen for anyone who is starting to think there's a better life out there but is scared to make a move. ☕️☕️☕️ Who doesn’t want free advice from people that are wildly successful...

What didn't we talk about on this date coffee with Kansas City beer geek Jeremy Danner? We hit what it means to sewer a batch of beer, what Jeremy thinks a brewery needs to do to go from good to great to amazing, and most importantly we invented the Shut Up And Drink Your Beer Beer (tm) during a really fun hour. Be sure to check out 4 Hands Brewery (https://4handsbrewery.com/) and Jeremy's Twitter account...
