We love things that go together. Turkey and stuffing. Macy's Thanksgiving Parade and the Rockettes. Viola and Instagram. Wait, Viola and Instagram? Sounds weird, but it's totally not when Drew Forde aka That Viola Kid is around. In this coffee date, we go deep on what it takes to be a live performer at the top of your craft and harness social and digital content, what the tradeoff is when you don't follow the traditional path and why dating is tough when you're labelled an 'influencer'.
Who doesn’t want free advice from people that are wildly successful and probably more good looking than we are? In most careers, mentorship is a built-in part of the process, but as theatre people, Andrew (Hamilton) and Jess (Broadway Unlocked) always wished they had more opportunity and access. Which is exactly why each week they’re taking you to coffee with some of the most incredible folx they can find, from Broadway to TV to YouTube to Sports to Historians to Entrepreneurship. We set up the coffee date and you become a part of the podcast as our guests answer your most burning questions. All without anyone having to leave the comfort of the internet (or put pants on tbh).
If you’re like us, and wish you had more access to smart, funny people who can help inspire you, this is your podcast! Anything goes on TM2C, so buckle up and leave us a VideoAsk to be a guest on the show and be mentored on air.
Oh! And come hang out with us on the internets!
