    Sitting N Spinning w/ Debbie Jhoon

    Melinda catches up with the gorgeous and amazing Debbie Jhoon on all that has transpired since they came up together in the LA storytelling scene, reading personal essays together at the fab Sit N Spin show at Comedy Central Stage co-founded by the brilliant Maggie Rowe and Joey (formerly Jill) Solloway, where Debbie was also proposed to in front of a live audience. 
    Always a hilarious wordsmith and storyteller, Debbie is now bringing her stories to life in comedy films and series including NOT DEAD YET, A.P. BIO starring Patton Oswalt and her new destination comedy out this week MAFIA MAMMA starring Toni Colette. She shares her writing process and how to go from from essayist to being funny for a living while also juggling being a mom and wife.

Vulnerability and truth are the keys to living through trauma

Melinda Hill interviews various guest artists about the trauma each has suffered in their lives and how they handled that trauma and used it to build their art and their legacy. Very interesting and informative. I give it five stars. You should listen!
