    Jeff Staple on Two Decades of Success by Any Means Necessary

    In the final episode of Season 2, host Justin Gignac sits down with one of the founding fathers of streetwear, Jeff Staple.

He’s also one of the nicest guys in the game and the unofficial mayor of the Lower East Side ever since he opened his store Reed Space in 2001. He is now the Creative Director of TGS Holdings whose shop Extra Butter is only a few doors down from the original Reed Space location on Orchard Street.

    In this episode, you will learn what it takes to stay relevant over the course of your career and that your only job in life is to just stay alive.

    Director Elena Parasco on Smashing Stereotypes Through the Female Gaze

    This Overshare is an in-studio conversation with film director and creative director Elena Parasco. Host Justin Gignac chat's with Elena about her burgeoning directing career and the motivation behind it. Instead of complaining about the lack of content that represented women in sport in a way that relates to her, she decided to make her own. The result is a growing body of work that examines sport and play through the female gaze. Disrupting those traditional, cliché stereotypes of sports imagery that we’re used to and making work that celebrates more accessible female role models.

    Elena is tenacious and resilient when trying to get her ideas out into the world, whether for herself or for clients like Nike, Air Jordan, A$AP Rocky, Calvin Klein, and Guess. She touches on how her non-traditional background studying cognitive science and psychology has informed her creative career and filmmaking. And is adamant about the necessity to have women in the room when creating content.

    In this episode, you will learn about embracing the doubt of others as motivation and how to find happiness in small wins. Especially, when going through challenging times in your career.
