It's “That Guy… Who Was in That Thing” meets “The Nerdist Podcast” but with people even less well known! Sure it's fun to interview the crazy famous and ask them about the difficult years, but that's been done and they won't return our calls. Memories are plastic - we're getting the real dirt from people still crawling through it. Laura Scruggs is the playwright and Jake Scruggs is the technical guy who listens to a lot of “This American Life” and thinks that qualifies him to interview people.

0:06:09 Christine's day begins with a demanding, furry friend: http://blog.christine2lin.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Iggy-at-home-in-Cincy-white-bed.jpg

0:07:15 Jake observes that Christine Lin has some of the best credits of any guest on our show- where did that begin?

0:19:45 Nilsa asks Christine how she transitioned from a science-based career focus to a performance career focus

0:27:00 Christine and Nilsa have both done many shows at Halcyon Theatre: http://halcyontheatre.org/

0:28:55 Christine is an improviser and does sketch comedy. Her comedy team "Siren" produced this video: http://christine2lin.com/news/2014/5/23/siren-the-audition

0:33:15 Jake asks Christine about her views on fitness as it relates to the business

0:38:05 Check out her YouTube series based on a 1950's joke book: https://www.youtube.com/user/BennettCerfJokes

0:46:36 Nilsa compliments Christine's social media presence…

0:50:00 … and the compliment turns out to be a set-up to ambush Bryn about following through on his ideas because Christine does exactly that.

0:53:04 So what does Bryn do instead of sharing his creative ideas with the world? He reads gaming blog "Kotaku". They led him to this:  http://kotaku.com/the-cat-with-the-ugliest-sleeping-face-in-japan-1668664813 and this http://kotaku.com/when-youre-a-cat-serious-television-can-be-tricky-1660020808

0:56:25 Christine is part of a web series that's in post-production called "Quick and Dirty" (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1054401716/quick-and-dirty-the-web-series). It's about casual sex. She also has a 5 page short that she wants to produce on a grander scale than using her iPhone and iMovie.

 

Our #Intern would love to tweet with you- please tweet at him!
