Our guest on this episode is Carrie Madsen, a true triple threat, nay, multi-threat. While Carrie was a long-time performer growing up in theater in her youth, she scaled back for a while in adulthood. But when she returned to performing, she leapt with gusto and single-mindedness that it jump-started her career, taking her from the Bay Area to Los Angeles. Besides having an old fashioned gab about a lot of different stuff, Carrie talked about what it’s like to build a career as a mature woman.
We had so much to chat about in our interview, that I discovered I had enough material for three episodes! This is the first installment.
