    Tina Reynolds is the founder of Uptown Studios. She is such a positive and joyful person to be around. She has given me so much of her time and advice over the years. Tina was one of the first people to encourage me to pursue my dream of helping other people produce podcasts of their own. In addition to being the Chief Juggler at Uptown Studios, Tina is a community leader and public speaker. We previously spoke back in Episode 77. Thanks for listening!

His art is colorful, bright, playful, and has a childlike wonder without being childish. As a result of artistic eye, his art is loved by people of all ages. Thanks for listening!

    Stay the F@!# Home With… Danny Reynoso

    Stay the F@!# Home With… Danny Reynoso

    Hi. The podcast ended in October of 2019. I had every intention of that being the end of it. However, everything changed with the shelter-in-place rule. So many in our community are now struggling to find their footing in our new reality. So why am I bringing the podcast back? I’ve been asked in person and online if the show would return during this difficult time. I was hesitant to do that, largely because I wasn’t sure what the podcast could offer during this time. The podcast was always so… idiosyncratic and loose. Do we need that now? But then I thought, this podcast can serve as a way for us to check in on our community leaders, business owners, freelancers, comics, and others to get words of encouragement and see how we can all help each other. Of course, it will still be idiosyncratic and loose. So, please join me as I checking in with Sacramento during this strange time in our city.

    For this episode I wanted to chat with someone working in the field of education. With that in mind, I decided to speak with previous guest Danny Reynoso. In addition to being an educator, Reynoso is a punk rock musician and performer. He is in The Moans and was in the The Secretions. Thanks for listening!

    This first person I thought to chat with is Comedian Johnny Taylor . Taylor call Sacramento home but travels the nation performing comedy. He’s one of my favorite comics and in my Top 5 of people to chat with on this show and in real life. As a stand-up comic who tours, the shelter-in-place order has stopped his source of income and took away the thing he needs the most to do what he does: audiences. Thanks for listening!
