    S4 EP 11 - Conversation with Comedian, Radio & Podcast Host Ophira Eisenberg

    S4 EP 11 - Conversation with Comedian, Radio & Podcast Host Ophira Eisenberg

    On today's episode I had the pleasure of talking to Ophira Eisenberg about her journey to becoming a standup comic, parenting and work life balance. Ophira is a Canadian-born standup comedian, writer, and host. She hosted NPR’s comedy trivia show Ask Me Another for 9-years, where she interviewed and played silly games with hundreds of celebrities including Sir Patrick Stewart, Awkwafina, Rosie Perez, Yo-Yo Ma, Bob The Drag Queen, Nick Kroll, Chelsea Handler, Jim Gaffigan, Michael C. Hall, and so many others.



    As a comic and a parent to a 6-year-old, Ophira is the host of the new comedy podcast Parenting Is A Joke co-produced by iHeart Radio and Pretty Good Friends Productions. The show launches on October 18th.



    She can be seen live, regularly headlining across the United States, Canada, and Europe delivering her unique blend of standup and storytelling to a loyal fan base of smart, irreverent comedy lovers. She has appeared at Montreal’s Just for Laughs Festival, The New Yorker Festival, The New York Comedy Festival, Moontower Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot, The Nantucket Film Festival, Women in Comedy Festival and more.



    Her new comedy album at special Plant-Based Jokes is available on iTunes and is streaming now on YouTube. Lauded as “hilarious, high risk, and an inspiration,” Ophira filmed her comedy special Inside Joke, when she was 8½ months pregnant. The show’s material revolves around how she told everyone that she was never going to have kids, and then unexpectedly found herself expecting at “an advanced maternal age.” Her other comedy albums, Bangs! and As Is



    She has appeared on Comedy Central, This Week at The Comedy Cellar, Kevin Hart’s LOL Network, HBO’s Girls, Gotham Live, The Late Late Show, The Today Show, and VH-1. The New York Times called her a skilled comedian and storyteller with “bleakly stylish” humor. She was also selected as one of New York Magazine’s “Top 10 Comics that Funny People Find Funny,” and hailed by Forbes.com as one of the most engaging comics working today.



    Ophira is a regular host and teller with The Moth and her stories have been featured on The Moth Radio Hour and in two of The Moth’s best-selling collections, including the most recent New York Times Bestseller: How To Tell A Story: The Essential Guide to Memorable Storytelling from The Moth.



    Ophira’s first book, Screw Everyone: Sleeping My Way to Monogamy (Seal Press), is a comedic memoir about her experiments in the field as a single woman, traveling from futon to futon and flask-to-flask, gathering data, hoping to put it all together and build her own perfect Frankenmate. It was optioned for a feature film.



    She is also sought after as a brilliant interviewer and moderator, and has interviewed dozens of celebrities, writers, and actors including Neil Gaiman at New York’s Town Hall; Jane Curtain, Anne Beatts, Heather Gardner, Sudi Green, Alysia Reiner, Jeanne Tripplehorn, David Crane, Jeffrey Klerik at The Nantucket Film Festival; Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy at the 92nd Street Y; and Nell Scovell and Sloane Crosley at The Mark Twain House.



    Originally from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Ophira graduated with a Cultural Anthropology and Theater degree from McGill University. She now lives in Brooklyn, NY where she is a fixture at New York City’s comedy clubs including the Comedy Cellar, Gotham Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club and Carolines, as well as Brooklyn’s famed performance venues The Bell House, Union Hall, and Littlefield.

    S4 E 10 - Building a Successful Eco-safe Cleaning Business with Alexia Antoniadis

    S4 E 10 - Building a Successful Eco-safe Cleaning Business with Alexia Antoniadis

    On today's episode I had the pleasure of talking to Alexia Antoniadis about overcoming addiction and mental health to build a successful cleaning business. Alexia is the founder of Earth Cleaning, one of Melbourne Australia's most trusted eco-safe cleaning companies.



    About Alexia

    After struggling with addiction and mental health issues throughout my time at university, I started working as a domestic cleaner so that I wouldn't need to speak or interact with anyone. I found cleaning to be therapeutic and something I could manage to do to generate income that was tolerable, but never viewed it as a long term opportunity.



    After COVID-19 I was out of work, and on Centrelink benefits, studying became even more difficult as I was remote learning, had to sit in front of a screen and could not ask questions.



    After becoming desperate for money I tried many ways of generating quick income until eventually arriving at the conclusion that each income generation would be difficult in it's own way and it was up to me to "choose my hard". So I had the idea to start cleaning again, except this time I would be working independently, and keeping 100% my profits. I spent the last of my savings on an eco-safe cleaning kit and a professional vacuum cleaner, and went to my local office supply store to start printing flyers to drop in letterboxes as this was the only method of advertising I could afford at the time.



    When I was just 20 years old, I realised the overwhelming demand for good cleaners. this was when I realised I had tapped into something that I could grow until I no longer needed to work. Once I saw this vision in my future, I promised myself I would do whatever it took to get there.



    I have since grown Earth Cleaning into one of Melbourne's most trusted eco-safe cleaning companies and do not plan on stopping any time soon. We are a registered NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) provider and have expended into industrial and commercial cleaning as well as domestic.



    Since having been fortunate enough to step away from physical cleaning and focus on management in 2024, my goal is to run Earth Cleaning with integrity and inclusivity, and to transform the service industry and the planet by eliminating the use of one use plastics and harsh chemicals wherever possible.



    Earth Cleaning engage in charity fundraising to maximise the impact we have on the planets conservation.



    Based on the philosophy that organisations can spark change on a greater scale than individuals can, she holds the wellbeing of her cleaners physical health and wellbeing as her top priority as the organisation grows and evolves.



    In an era of young people who are always looking for a quick fix, falling into this experience has taught me that everything is hard in one way or another, and this shouldn't intimidate you into doing what everyone else is doing. There is still something to be said about sticking with something and seeing it through.



    It is difficult to keep an attention span, maintain faith in yourself and your cause and not compare yourself to others; and even more difficult to be taken seriously as a woman or young person in business, but young people understand the future better than anyone else and have the power to achieve greatness!
