And how are they changing?  Mike is the sole creator of Michael Greenlee Blackstone Cooking, a 1-minute a day episodic that can be found on just about any social media platform including his YouTube Channel:  Michael Greenlee Blackstone Cooking

    Ep. 33 - Create Your Own Whirlwind feat. Lawrence Stallings

    Ep. 33 - Create Your Own Whirlwind feat. Lawrence Stallings

    Please welcome, Lawrence Stallings - husband, father, coast-to-coast actor, and all around creative.  Lawrence has performed in numerous Broadway shows (The Book of Mormon, Hair, and Passing Strange) in NYC, as well as episodic television and films in Los Angeles.  He is currently set to play the famous blues guitarist, Robert Johnson, in RL at the Crossroads - a one-man show that is to be filmed in Philadelphia this summer.    
    Matthew and Lawrence met on the set of a television show they did for TLC back in 2007 (Diagnosis X).  And today, they sit down (remotely) as old friends and discuss everything from creative ADHD, audience attention spans, and the future of film to writing, acting, envy, and creating your own whirlwind (as Lawrence puts it).

    Ep. 31 - Creativity and Mental Health

    Ep. 31 - Creativity and Mental Health

    Denise and Matthew delve into the idea that creativity improves mental health.  They discuss the notion that mental health (or lack thereof) has historically led to great works of art, and they work through ideas about why being creative can give you an edge in mind, body, and spirit.

    Ep. 30 - The Role of Sex in Art

    Ep. 30 - The Role of Sex in Art

    Denise poses yet another big question this week (she has been on fire) about the role of sex in art.  Why is it so often such a prevalent factor in the things we create?  Is there a proper balance or place for sex in the artistic endeavors we pursue?  Again, no right or wrong answers... Just questions, thoughts, and interesting conversations.
