Thank you for taking the time during this world crisis to still include this program in your daily life. We usually jump right into the episodes, but i just wanted to take a moment to say that your time is greatly appreciated, and if you or a loved one are trying to find ways to find your way back to good health, just know that you're always in my heart. My hope is that this brings you joy, entertainment, and a much needed escape during your forced solitude. Thank you again, and enjoy the show...

Of Music and Men is a story, so it's best to start listening at episode one. This episode is a bonus episode during our brief hiatus. I decided not to post an update last week. Sometimes you gotta read the room. There's a lot going on in this country and I felt like I needed a break from entertainment for a minute. This episode is just a brief update on what's been happening. Music by Mona Wonderlick - Bloom (download via Soundcloud) Also, check out the Heroes video on Youtube. Just click here.

I wanted to give a quick update about what's been going on since I haven't been producing proper episodes. Don't worry, I'm getting back to it soon. In this episode, I talk a little about working on HBO's VEEP as an intern, recently meeting one of my heroes, Tanya Saracho (creator of Vida on Starz network), writing a new TV pilot during Covid, how I'm navigating trying to promote the new novella, and I give you a peek into what's going on with the novellas, and some writer-insights and things I've been learning over the last few months. Music for this episode is provided by my Swedish friends, Le Gang. The song is "Come On, Let's Go."

So you've made it to part two of the Crowdcast interview! But I have a few notes before we start again... I've got some good news: You can now go onto the site, ofmusicandmen.com, and be among the first to get the novella for episode two by pre-ordering before its official release date. Due to the recent pandemic, the traditional ways of doing things have gone out the window. I know that entertainment is not an "essential product," so I want to make sure anyone who wants access to my art can get it... whether you can return the favor by paying for it or not. I'M MAKING IT SUPER EASY TO GET THE DIGITAL VERSION OF EPISODE TWO OF THE NOVELLA SERIES, NOTHING BUT A NUMBER. If you can afford to give $1 or more, great. Click the "Give what you can" button. But if you still want to read but cannot support me right now, that's fine as well. Just click the "Read now, give later" button. As mentioned in the last few podcast episodes, as an artistic entrepreneur, the unending of everything around us has altered my normal way of going about things,, but I am certainly not complaining. Financial struggles aside, I've personally welcome this as an opportunity to focus on gratitude and completely readjust what's considered "normal." Anyway, here's part two of another recent conversation about the of music and men project. This is a two-parter, so if you didn't hear the beginning, just go back and listen to episode before this one. Now, my people on Patreon have already gotten this full interview and they received it in video format, but for my regular podcast listener, the audio-only was broken up into two parts. Thanks again for listening, and enjoy the show. Music: Leonell Cassio - A Magical Journey Through Space
