Denise welcomes guest co-host and long time listener ForVaJayJay to the show this week, as she fills in for Donna, who's mountain climbing in North Carolina. (No, seriously.) The ladies discuss their summer months and what's been going on. Some shout outs are given. The L Fest festivities for July 18th-21st are announced (www.lfest.co.uk) and some new podcasts and web series are discussed. Some interview clips from Denise's chats with UK comedian Rosie Wilby, writer, director, producer Marina Rice Bader (www.AnatomyofaLoveSeen.com) and singer/actor Haviland Stillwell are played. Hot topics include "Orange Is The New Black", "The View", and Outfest in LA (July 10-20). The Chick Music Spotlight is on Haviland Stillwell (www.havilandstillwell.com) and The Internet Golden Nugget is www.tellofilms.com - the sponsor of this year's L Fest Cinema plus World Pride dates are announced, a Best Of Clip from October 2007 is shared, and the show ends on Haviland's new single "Detox". Thanks, VaJayJay for a great job!
Maybe you know her from "Easy Abby" or the SHE4Me video, and maybe you've seen her on the NY stage- but right now you need to get to know Haviland Stillwell as a sexy, singer - with her new EP "Spark"- available on iTunes. Filled with high energy, pop, dance mixes, written by Haviland herself, it's the perfect summer time blend of hot & cool. This is my one on one chat with Haviland as she gets ready for the big launch….
Sit back and have a listen to Denise's one on one chat with out British comedian Rosie Wilby. Rosie is one of the hardest working ladies I know, with radio shows (Out In South London and on BBC Sussex), podcasts, stand up comedy gigs, hosting Spoken Word events, doing one woman shows (The Science of Sex, Nineties Woman) with performances coming up at L Fest, in Uttoxeter July 18-21, and in August at the Edinburgh Fringe Fest. If you haven't seen Rosie perform live, you simply must- she's the smartest, thought-provoking comedian (& sometimes musician), always relatable, and can tickle your funny bone about current situations or blasts from the past. www.rosiewilby.com
You recognise her name & face and you know she was a producer of "Elena Undone" and "A Perfect Ending" but Marina is flying solo these days as a director of a new feature length film called "Anatomy of A Love Seen" which debuts at Outfest in Los Angeles on July 18th. Here's my one-on-one, very candid chat with her discussing the film, her unique approach to film making- an improvised script- shooting in just 5 days, the idea behind a world-wide online release of the film (July 19th), her cast, the challenges of motherhood, Facebook, and what the future of film making holds for her.
