Happy New Year! We survived 2020 y'all! Sure 2021 has already brought us an insurrection and an inauguration BUT here's some joy for you! Christian got a new 2021 couch (see couch background filter) and Shonali is resolute in her plan to make no 2021 New Year's resolutions. She insists you do the same!
To start out 2021, we introduce you to a bright light - Kadine Anckle! She is an accomplished creative: showrunner, writer, producer, director and more! We talk the rarity of showering during the pandemic along and the accumulation of stuff in a NYC apartment, hair issues in Zambia & gardening in NYC. Kadine shares her pride as a creator and an Afro-Latina woman from Panama.
We Get It Off Your Chest with WDEK crew member Jason Lam. Shonali has roommate issues with her husband. Christian discusses the casual usage of the word "slave" by friends. Jason Lam, one of the most annoyed people we know - but today he surprises us all!
Musician Greg Humphreys comes to us live from his NYC music room. Greg is the former leader of the bands Dillon Fence and Hobex and now leads The Greg Humphreys Electric Trio. He also currently records his own solo acoustic music. We discuss the grind from non-stop touring over the years, time with family in NYC and recording his own music at home with The Rig. We are lucky enough to hear him perform one of his unreleased new songs Take A Trip.
WDEK lost two friends unexpectedly in December, musician & Love As Laughter leader Sam Jayne and comedian Catie Lazarus. Both were infectious spirits who brought us so much joy. They are gone too soon and we are so thankful for them being in our world. All of you whom have experienced loss this past year, we are with you and extend our condolences. We hope you will continue to celebrate these humans throughout your life as we will Sam and Catie.
Happy New Year all! Check out Christian's t-shirt from high school! "Who Got Big Lips?" Only Christian knows the answer to that question!
