E5: Artists #5, Featuring Leanne Rivers

This episode features the fifth installment of the Voices from the Dark Artists series. My guest is actress and producer Leanne Rivers. Previous to the podcast, I had the opportunity to work with Leanne a bit, recording a script read-through for an upcoming project of hers. We discuss that and many other topics, including her path as an artist, the challenges she has faced on that path, and how being both playful and serious are essential to life as an artist and as a human being. We also talk a bit about self-editing and political correctness, which could be an episode on its own, but we try not to get too political. Enjoy!
