On this episode of Odd Numbers, we get to the bottom of Uncomfortable Brunch with hosts/curators Joshua David Martin and Kat Whitacre. The long-running monthly film event is moving venues but will continue making people cringe with movies that feature topics that are not dinner table topics. They are, however, perfect for the brunch crowd! This episode was recorded on June 10, 2019, on WPRK FM. To a Certain Degree is a weekly radio show on WPRK featuring makers, artists, and professionals who are doing something neat.
No matter how passionate you are for your passion project, there are going to be some challenges along the way. Take starting an opera company, for example. Sounds easy, right? It doesn’t, and it wasn’t, but Nicole Dupre is celebrating two years as the creative director of Opera del Sol. The non-profit is her love letter to a genre that typically doesn’t get a lot of love, and she’s learned a lot about how tenacious you have to be to keep things rolling. Enjoy!
Banks Helfrich returns to the WPRK studio, and we recycle very few of the jokes from his first appearance. In fact, it's 100% all new. This episode of Odd Numbers had the theme of connections, which not only ties into his show, Black Cow Jumps, we also realized that we have a connection dating back 25+ years. Thanks Fringe Festival!
Crimes in real life: Bad. Crimes in books: Good! That is, if you like that sort of thing. If you do, then this is a good episode for you. Burrow Press publisher Ryan Rivas returns to the studio to discuss some of his favorite literary wrongdoings. Not like grammar mistakes or anything.
Favorite t-shirts seems like an easy topic, but there are a lot of nuances to it. All time faves? Just ones you currently own? Are they in the current rotation, or are they retired somewhere because they don't fit right now or are too embarrassing to wear? Victoria Walsh, who could make her own t-shirts with rope, is back in the studio to discuss her best shirts, and some local makers chime in as well.
