This was fun:
I got to kick off the latest episode of comedian David Huntsberger's The Space Cave podcast with a casual phone chat. We briefly talk about "dayjob" challenges* when one's vocation isn't always one's main source of income.
If you've followed this blog, you'll know that I've collaborated with David on several projects such as his One Headed Beast animated comedy special filmed in Austin, TX (full length animation dvd purchase option here and streaming stage show download here ). David recently provided some valuable technical assistance on a current project of my own, for which I'm quite appreciative. Also do check out the Sixteen Second Story animated storytelling collaborative experiments built on his monthly Junk Show variety show hosted at the Copper Still in Los Angeles (embedded down on the left column of this blog). I hope to be able to visit and participate live at one of them someday in the future.
David is a smart but grounded multi-creative (comedy, animation & other visual art) who hosts some heady conversations with scientists, comedians, and artists in various fields on the podcast. I'm honored to have been able to participate with this introduction (and also relieved my more awkward stutters and meandering were mostly edited out!)

*On the podcast I had mentioned a book that takes an undercover look at service industry work, manual and domestic labor in the United States, along with the ability or inability to support oneself on the wages earned. I pretty much garbled the author's name. It's Barbara Ehrenreich's "Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America"
