    Celebrating Kevin Clark

    Celebrating Kevin Clark

    My dear friend and bandmate Kevin Clark left this earthly realm on May 26th, 2021. This episode is a celebration of his life and his spirit, featuring Jack Black, Z Infante, Maryam Hassan, Cole Hawkins, Angelo Massagli, Joey Gaydos, Jordan-Claire Smith, Caitlin Hale, Richard Linklater and dozens of Kevin's loving fans. It was an absolute honor to hear from all of you. I would also like to thank Brian Pocrass, Reid Pope and Meghan Edwards for helping me put together this beautiful tribute.

    Kevin will never be forgotten. Let's continue to honor his legacy by visiting https://kevinscoda.org and helping Chicago become a safer city for cyclists and continuing to bring music programming into schools.

    Buddha Babes (pt. 2 w/ Z Infante)

    Buddha Babes (pt. 2 w/ Z Infante)

    Welcome to the second half of my reunion with the INCREDIBLE Z Infante (they/them) from the little known art house film School of Rock. We talk about facing bullies, queer coded villains, and guess what...I maybe shed a tear at Z's "What Would You Say To Little You?" because it hit me RIGHT in the feefees.

    Follow Z on IG @zrinfante and check out The Future Perfect Project @thefutureperfectproject.

Something to look forward to every week!

Thank you Rivkah for pulling back the curtain and allowing these public figures to share their humanity with the world! Highly recommend giving it a listen if you’re a creative person or have ever questioned your life’s path. The conversations are raw and deeply personal but also uplifting and hopeful.

Love it!

Late to the bandwagon, but I just listened and will keep at it! Very interesting and entertaining!

Shannon Cobb ,

I pledge allegiance.. to Where Are We Now.

This podcast is everything I didn’t know I needed and more. Riv is an absolute treat to listen to (literally could listen to their voice forever, not to be dramatic.) There are so many layers to this show from light and fluffy to serious issues that are good to talk about. I look forward to these episodes and have loved every one so far, but as a low key degrassi fan, the Andrea Lewis one has been my absolute favorite. One of the most important things I love about this show is how Riv concludes it, reminding us we are loved which just filled my soul with such great energy the first time I heard it, and every time since.
