TalkAnything - Episode 9 - Joe Cannon


This week's guest is Joe Cannon. Joe is the Director of Marketing at a company call Sports Studio. His job is to outfit nearly every commercial, TV show, and movie with sports apparel.

Why do you seem sometimes and why do you not see them other times?

TalkAnything - Episode 5 - Jon Weinberg


In the fifth episode of the TalkAnything podcast, I talk with Jon Weinberg. Jon is an actor, producer, and director. Jon had the opportunity to be my first guest with my new microphone set up. Unfortunately, I'm still figuring out to set everything up, so it's still not perfect. But better than last week! 

Jon and I discuss what his journey into the entertainment industry. How he got his first gig, what it was like booking a national commercial for Microsoft, and what his experience has been getting his independent movie, Funeral Day made. 

Jon is the co-producer, co-director, and lead actor in the movie. Funeral Day is the darkly funny story of a man who skips his friend’s funeral in an attempt to start living life to the fullest. Along the way he quits his job, begs for a 2nd chance at love, attempts to look death in the face & of course gets his prostate milked all in the name of changing his life.

Let's help Jon get his film fully funded. His crowdfunding campaign is almost complete, with just a few days left. Any little bit helps. Contribute here.
