People I want to Interview
The Anti “Rags to Riches” Podcast featuring actors, comics, musicians, and real people
Nina G. is a comedian, professional speaker, storyteller, writer and educator. She brings her humor to help people with understanding Disability culture, access, and empowerment. We met when we students at San Francisco Comedy College 10 yrs ago. We talked about her upcoming new book Stutter Interrupted: The Comedian Who Almost Didn’t Happen along with politics and being a woman in Comedy.
Intro Music Inappropriate Things - Train Tracks available on iTunes.
In 2010, It started out as just another personal trainer that I would meet weekly. During a breakup in 2011, the few joys at the time were training sessions with TJ and my 12 step recovery. He gave me the space I needed to cry as I did burbies, crunches, to help process my hurt. His approach is more than just “Looking Good”. We talk about Health and Fitness resources for low income and underserved populations. Follow him on Instagram @tjfortuna
Intro Music Mick Schafer Band - Tears of Joy
Actor, Busker, Heroteer and Host of The Mark Roman Empire Also A Podcast. We talk about Creativity, the horrors of Capitalism and its relation to art and creativity and his adamant refusal to never step in an office to support his livelihood as an artist. It’s been over 10 yrs since we last saw each other. We started out as comics. I continued the comedy path while Mark went on the actor path. Which led him to LA-Las Vegas-LA. That is where this podcast starts.

Ep 4 - Enzo Lombard
Artist, Performer, and Author of Louisiana Fairytales. We’ve been Facebook friends for over ten years, but we never met until I flew down to SF from PDX to interview him at his SF apartment the week before Pride. I started following his facebook posts more when he accidentally fell into vacation rentals. I affectionally titled his posts as “SideHustle with Enzo Lombard”. Each post read like a TV show. Enzo created a fantastic sustainable business model that employers should be paying attention to. He’s also got a new solo performance show in the works— Louisiana Fairytales which is the sequel to Love Humiliation in Karaoke.
