Episode 10: Get Some Irish In Ya! Discussion

Hidey Didey Hi all you peoples!

Taylor here. Aye, twas a fun episode this week talking to the lovely Mrs. Elena Porter. She is a long time friend of mine so it was a pleasure to have her visit The Living Room Studios. She was supposed to be joined by Mr. Cody Porter (no relation) but if you listen to the episode you will find out the dark reasons behind his absence. Elena was in to talk about her role (alongside Cody) in the upcoming show Days of Wine and Roses playing at the Varscona Theatre February 15-23. Elena is a fantastic actress who works in as many different ways that she can to consistently push herself. Theatre people are generally “go getters” but Elena is a “go getter it done with style go getter”, which basically means she is always up for a challenge and will always do her best to conquer that challenge. She is an inspiration to me and hopefully after hearing what she has to say, an inspiration to you too.

Kurt Ballderson also stopped by as a scheduled visit. He contacted me via finding me at my new place of work and set up an appearance on the show. It HAD to be with Elena, though…so that was odd…considering Elena had just sent me a text asking to be on the show. Some weird coincidences were addressed on this weeks episode. Kurt, seems to have taken a turn for the worse and we are all hoping for him….and praying for Mr Cody Porter. May you return to us safely.

We had our regular scheduled visit from #theatremari and I have to say…it got a little dark. Her thoughts on love seem a little skewed towards taking care of yourself and not your loved one. Also, her thoughts on people in relationships getting lazy and fat…I find a tad offensive since I am in a relationship and am….lazy. Dang. She hit me where it hurts.
Mari also did a pretty shitty job of relaying information to you regarding The Good Women‘s upcoming fundraiser What’s Cooking. Thankfully Bri Bri saved us all. Follow the links or listen to Brian to learn more about it.
Mari got a stern talking to after the segment so look for next to week to be more informative. Also, check back next week to see if her date with Dale Motherford went as planned…
Other things mentioned in the news include: The Gray Gallery, Where the Blood Mixes at Theatre Network and Lindsey Walker.

Don’t forget about the special announcement at the end of the show this week. We will have two new episodes in the next two weeks. Look for Jessica Peverett and Nicole Schafenacker on Feb.22 and the aforementioned Lindsey Walker on March 1st! Three straight weeks of What It Is!

As always feel free to contact us on facebook, twitter or email us at whatitispodcast@gmail.com if you have questions, comments, queries or concerns. If you have suggestions for a question to discuss on The Good, the Bad and The Ugly Advice then please submit it one of those mentioned ways.

Go see some art, go see some theatre, make sure to laugh with your friends and drink responsibly without putting pressure on your family life!
