- on Beginnings
Oh yeah! Tomorrow on Beginnings is Katja Blichfeld, the Emmy-award winning casting director of 30 Rock and co-creator of one of the best webseries on the internet High Maintenance. Katja grew up in an evangelical household as the daughter of Danish immigrants. We had a great talk, and I think you’ll dig it.

This Thursday I had an awesome talk with MC, writer and actor Jean Grae. Her parents were jazz musicians from South Africa and she grew up in the Chelsea Hotel. Plus, learn how her childhood ballet teacher violently ruined her dancing career. It kind of made my jaw drop. Also, a great talk with comedian Dave Bluvband (who you might know as the Human Fish on The Chris Gethard Show) about his own run-ins with teachers and in general, how much he hated school. It’s a can’t-miss episode, unless you are deaf or deceased.
