It's “That Guy… Who Was in That Thing” meets "WTF" 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. 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.

0:01:30 Jake and Laura take even more time out of their vacation time for your entertainment, podcast listener. See how much they love you?

0:03:20 Bryn is cornering the market on English language V.O. for the Hungarian market

0:05:05 Nilsa got good feedback on her V.O. demo from Hungarian V.O. king, Brian McKenna (

0:18:10 John Frigo- Jake's cousin, one-time apprentice to Les Scruggs, former Q-Bert enthusiast

0:20:25 Like former podcast guest, Nicholas Young, John Frigo didn't like writing code for other people

0:26:45 Like for Bryn, for John there was a girl involved in his decision to pursue his study of art

0:29:00 Making art has been integral to Sherri's existence for her entire life

0:32:10 Her family was never career-focused, they just got jobs and did their thing, so there was no pressure

0:34:05 Sherri's day job is reference librarian and then she schedules the time to make art

0:34:45 People say they're going to buy, but then they don't

0:35:25 Sherri sometimes wishes she hadn't sold certain pieces simply so she could look at them again

0:42:25 Sherri loves to really exhaust a subject before she gives it up

0:44:10 Making art is so essential to both John and Sherri, that they will adapt their style to the space they have available

0:45:45 John likes to make art that "gets seen", like t-shirts, band posters and doesn't so much pursue the gallery scene (here is some CD artwork he's done for the band The Prannies:

0:46:35 John is a part of a group called "Friends of Bob" that brings musical acts to Lafayette, IN- on the order of nine shows a year.

0:48:35 John also designed Laura's poster for "Meet Me On The Ceiling"

0:52:35 Nilsa asks about the themes John and Sherri explore with their respective work

0:54:05 John and Sherri made their way through the entire available 50+ seasons of Doctor Who. An "impressively insane" accomplishment

0:56:35 Even when Sherri doesn't think she has an idea, she works anyway

0:56:45 Here is a sampling of Sherri's self portraits with an interview:


0:57:55 Bryn asks Sherri how she knows when she's done with a theme
