    Episode 9: Moti Margolin - Actor, Videographer, WWE Wresting Commentator in Russian

    Commentator for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) (Russian programming) - that’s been a long standing gig for New York actor Moti Margolin. He’s often cast as Eastern European villains, the most infamous being Dmitri Rascalov in Grand Theft Auto IV. His parents came from Russia, he was born in Israel but grew up in America. Moti is named after his grandfather Mordechai who was a lead actor in a theatre company in Belarus. Acting he says, is his career but videography pays the bills. However, all his work is intricately connected – so much so that his days are scheduled into blocks of activity but they all help him become a better actor. He’s also recently been singing, song writing and writing film scripts.

    Episode 8: Anita Sullivan, playwright & multi tech e learning creator and landscape gardener

    Anita Sullivan has written more than sixty plays for audio and stage. She lives in the picturesque village of Lancing on the West Sussex coast. Like many of the entrepreneurial artists on this show, she includes other highly developed skills in her portfolio. She balances playwriting with two other careers: a digital storyteller and interactive designer for corporate e- learning and – a very British passion - a landscape gardening company that she’s established. That’s a lot of different hats and administrative issue to juggle and she discusses how the work is linked and complementary.

    Episode 7: Patrick Grant - Exploring Music as Ritual and Spectacle

    Episode 7: Patrick Grant - Exploring Music as Ritual and Spectacle

    .
    Composer and guitarist Patrick Grant believes that the roots of all music are in spectacle. He’s worked with avant garde theater directors such as Robert Wilson and the activist Living Theater created by Judith Malina and Julian Beck. He’s fascinated by the chants and percussive sounds of the gamelan orchestras of Bali and the Kecak monkey dances which he’s studied on frequent visits to Indonesia. He’s interested in the physics of sound and what he calls ‘strange’ music. Originally from Detroit, he grew up with motoric industrial rhythms and tuned in to the CBC and BBC because Detroit has an affinity to Canada. Today his apartment looks out on the East River in NYC and he’s a professor at New York University, but he still travels widely to play and study the traditions of other cultures.
    Patrick is inspired by

    Episode 5: Nathan Yungerberg - Changing how you describe your work can bring a new lease of life to your career.

    Episode 5: Nathan Yungerberg - Changing how you describe your work can bring a new lease of life to your career.

    This week's guest is Nathan Yungerberg. For more than 14 years he called himself a playwright. He had many residencies writing for prestigious theater companies like the Black Theater of Harlem and the Cherry Lane Theater. However, he describes the experience of writing for the American theater as traumatic because there are so few opportunities for new plays to be produced. 
    But the day he decided to call himself a Storyteller, everything changed! 
    He moved into different genres. He’s now writing episodes for a podcast epic drama based on Greek myths and aimed at young teenagers. He’s also a writer on Sesame Street. He admits that his plays were the springboard for this satisfying new work so it’s part of a long process.
