#130 Jessica Anne Marino from JamDancer talks Pittsburgh's dance scene.

#130 Jessica Anne Marino from JamDancer Pittsburgh There are some times you just want to dance. if you are me, that just happens to be about 80% of the time. I love moving my body and rocking out letting loose and being free. I had always wanted to be a dancer when I was a kid but maybe I started late, maybe I was too pudgy, or maybe the scene with those girls in that snobby class was just NOT ME. AHEM, I digress. The point is, I love dancing and I have a hard time finding places in...


#129 Brian Edward from "Burgh Vivant" talks arts and culture in Pittsburgh

#129 Brian Edward from Burgh Vivant When you meet humans that have your same tastes it is the best feeling in the world. I had a feeling when I danced with Brian Edwards at the City Theatre Gala that I had to get to know him better. He may be one of the only people I have met that has more interests than I do, and that is a compliment because I truly believe in trying ALL things you may find of interest. One of the passions of Brian is to lift up the culture and arts scene in Pittsburgh...


#128 Costa Rica Guanacaste travel tips!

#128 Costa Rica Guanacaste Region Tips I am extremely late with this post,(actually I forgot to post it how fun!) but wanted to record an episode about my husband and I's trip to Costa Rica.

Billy Kidd- Fabulous Female Magician Visits Liberty Magic Ep 127

#127 Billy Kidd- Rockin Female Magician I grew up thinking of all magicians as male, I am sure most of us have. It is the way they have been portrayed through media through stories, and truly it HAS in history been a man's occupation. The top hat, the goatee, and infamous coat was imbedded in my psyche from childhood until today. 2700 bc marks a man that is the known to use the first ever performance of magic with the use of balls. From 400-1000 men were known to perform magic with the use...


Tips from a Master Gardener in Pittsburgh episode 126

#126 Gardening in Pittsburgh with Kyle Ethan Fischer Spring is here! Do you feel it? Are you, like me, pacing around your garden looking for the newest bulbs to blossom, or perennials to possibly return? Do you mutter to yourself the following questions- "Is my lavender coming back? It better be!", "What the hell did I plant here?", "What else can I plant here?", "Are pots on sale yet?", "Why the hell isn't my clematis growing yet!?" If you have said one of these questions to yourself (or...


Chuck Leavens from WZUM talks Pittsburgh Jazz

#125 Chuck Leavens from WZUM talks Pittsburgh Jazz Pittsburgh has a rich history in Jazz, that I am embarrassed to say that I didn’t know about until the past few years. In the 20’s and 30’s we were a haven for artists and a blossoming ground for talent that influenced jazz history around the city. It came from New Orleans on the river boats with the first ever African American Jazz band to travel North. It grew from there and seeped into the souls of citizens in the town. Pittsburgh’s...


Ryan O'Shea Talks the Future of Technology on Marta On The Move Podcast

#124 Ryan O Shea Technology is scary. As I am drinking my new addicting matcha with almond milk, and typing on my laptop that I desperately need to A. Update, or B. Buy a new one. I say to myself NOOOOO keep it the same. Marta! I am terrified of the unknown, the new gadget, the learning and stretching of my brain that I cannot control, and frankly think I am too outdated to learn. Anyone else feel like that? I hope so, I hope it isn’t just me. Secretly terrified my laptop will die, and I...

#118 Magician Dan White Talks About His Show at The Nomad Hotel, New York

#119 Dan White Magician Halloween is right upon us and one of the best things to do around this time in my mind is seeing a magic show. I have visited The Magic Castle in LA, and have chatted with Lee Terbosic in Pittsburgh. This time I took my curious nature to New York to chat with Dan White who has a residency in The Nomad Hotel for his show "The Magician". This show is intimate, immersive, and wonderful. Full of all types of magic from slight of hand, mentalism, and illusion. It has...


Cinema Psychos Show Podcast Hosts Join Marta On The Move to Chat Horror Films

#117 Cinema Psychos Show Podcast October is here (my goodness it came way too early) which means I am knee deep into the lead up to Halloween features for the show, and discovering all sorts of horror movies to watch. I have a special affinity for B horror films, and love finding new ones. When I was younger I always wanted to be a film critic. I had visions of myself sitting next to Roger Ebert at 12 years of age, giving my take on the latest film to arise. It is one of the reasons I...

#115 Maria Vincenzia La Monica- Cancer Survivor and Bad Ass

#115 Maria Vincenzia La Monica- Cancer Survivor and Bad Ass The lead up to Halloween is always my favorite time of year. It gives me something to look forward to while I know in the back of my mind that the evenings are getting darker earlier, the sun isn’t as warm as the days go by, and the ever approaching winter will be here before you know it. BUT before I can get depressed about that, I gear up my soul with some awesome podcast ideas that I want to discover that all lead up to one of...


#114 Where to Eat and Drink in Barcelona, Spain

#114 Eating and Drinking in Barcelona This summer Phil and I visited the famed city of Barcelona. We were not prepared with how this city hangs. We arrive late one evening, and decided to hit the town, staying out well past 2am. Little did we know, the city awakens around 11pm and stays up all night long. Trying to keep pace with the locals, we quickly learn the customs. Tapas is the name of the game here and anywhere between 1 and 2pm you take your major meal of the day followed by a...


Rob Lee Co-Founder of Pittsburgh's ESports Team- The Knights

#113 Rob Lee Co-Founder of Pittsburgh's ESports Team-The Knights Ever dream of being a professional video game player when you were a kid? Yeah, join the club. Everyone wanted that! After the movie The Wizard in the 80’s kids, (and probably grown ups) thought that would be the most spectacular dream ever. Well folks, guess what Marta didn’t know. Marta didn’t know it is ACTUALLY A THING NOW. No, really. There is something out there called ESports, and there are teams of video gamers all...
