My Podcast with Andre
This episode is part of our Time Release Capsule series. What are those formative times in our lives, where the lessons are so rich and resonant, it would be a damn shame not to carry those lessons into our lives in the present? It started with a clip of the film "My Dinner With Andre" (starring Andre Gregory and Wallace Shawn) that James shared with Ilyana. This began a flooding of memories of when Ilyana studied acting with Andre at Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. This conversation shares the lessons taught by Andre, with brilliant nuggets of gold to inspire you forward into 2023. All Music and Lyrics by James Harrell and Ilyana Kadushin.
