    S2E2 : Leah Lax | I Want To Be Dangerous — Repost!

    S2E2 : Leah Lax | I Want To Be Dangerous — Repost!

    ​Leah Lax is: A word person. A people person. One of those creative sorts who has to try to walk around as an ostensibly rational person. (The pandemic has eased that problem.) A secret cellist. And a collaborator, perhaps because she thinks in terms of music she isn’t very good at making herself. Leah is also a refugee from extreme religion, who has seven grown kids. Leah’s memoir Uncovered: How I Left Hasidic Life and Finally Came Home is the only gay memoir ever to come out of the Hasidic world. It was on many “best of” lists, Susan Sarandon read it on NPR, and it is soon to be an opera by Grammy-nominated Lori Laitman.
    Leah’s next book is Not From Here, about how she rediscovered America through stories told her by immigrants and refugees, and why that matters. Leah has written four major projects based on interviews with interesting people: a touring photo exhibit, a large scale opera (Houston Grand Opera), a spoken word performance piece (the Houston Symphony), and her book Not From Here.

     Billy Davis is a musician, athlete, personal trainer, real estate agent, and entrepreneur. In May 2012, Billy survived a horrific motorcycle accident that took his left leg above the knee. He spent more than four months in rehab and endured nine surgeries, after which he returned to personal training just six months after his accident. Always up for a challenge, less than a year after that, Billy returned to cycling, joining the Wiggle Your Toes and Achilles Triathlon teams, which led to his first triathlon in the summer of 2015 and subsequently to an Iron Man competition. Billy has documented much of his training through social media and he’s been a daily source of inspiration for thousands of people around the world.  After living in the NYC area for the better part of 20 years, Billy became a licensed real estate salesperson and a member of The Signature Team at Compass Real Estate. During the COVID lockdown, with his girlfriend Nikki Kimbrough, he co-created the live Zoom podcast/talk show The Amputee and His Girl, "chronicles of a couple living the entrepreneurial lifestyle while on the grind in NYC with only three legs.”

Nothing out there like it!

I was unsure that it would be interesting to me at first. I am neither an artist or an actor. But it super interesting listening to people discuss their artistic pursuits and how they manage the change in this modern world. Super charming guests- a really interesting podcast. I highly recommend it for something new and different. Bravo for a breath of fresh air!
