Morgan Millogo graduated with a BFA in Film and Television Production from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. A Washington native, Morgan spent five years as part of the Seattle Indy film scene as an actor and director and was also a Burlesque Performer and Emcee. After the unexpected death of her father, Morgan lived as a nomad and became a Certified Contemporary Shamanic Practitioner and Yogi. Now relocated to the Hudson Valley, Morgan most recently worked as Head of Production at InsideRisk LLC and part of the core content team, overseeing the development of an interactive television series as well as live multi-media events throughout the world focused on fostering critical thinking. Her recently released web series, TABS AND CLEA, marks her first project as a writer, actor, director and producer since the passing of her father in 2010. 

Meg Affonso is an intuitive artist, actor, choreographer, writer, producer & director; she is a gifted storyteller who has the performing arts ingrained in her soul. Meg has performed in a variety of theatrical productions, ranging from musical theatre to dramatic plays. Meg has studied various forms of dance throughout her life and has performed in film, web series productions, commercials & television. Meg has written two screenplays & a stage play and continues to be open to art in all of its forms. Meg’s mission is to tell stories that matter & to help others by introducing them to art as a multifaceted healing modality. She is one of the cast of Tabs & Clea and has an upcoming performance show titled, BODY, happening at the Albany Center Gallery the next three consecutive Sundays. Morgan directed the short film which will be a part of the performance.

Tabs & Clea: Tabs, a psychic who has dedicated her life to helping people, has fallen into a crisis of faith.  When her audacious ex-roommate, Clea, unexpectedly shows up and demands to know why Tabs has stopped using her gift, Tabs is forced to face and discover the truth of a tragedy she did not foresee.

BODY: Sundays, August 2, 9, & 16, from [2:00] – 4:00 p.m. — Meg Affonso and Albany Center Gallery present BODY, an experiential and immersive art installation that explores the sacred connection between the body and the soul that exists in each individual. The public is invited to attend free of charge (ages 12 & up, content not suitable for small children). Signing up in advance is recommended to reserve a spot, but walk-ins are accepted if there is available room. Do so here: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/body-tickets-112398521002 Shows are filling up!

The elements of BODY include: three short dance/dialogue-based films, live sculpture + movement, an immersive audience experience, collective artistic creation, photography, and movement labs and release through writing that will be transformed into physical art that represents rebirth. BODY is inspired by the poem “I Sing the Body Electric” by Walt Whitman and also by the current events in today’s world. BODY is representative of the struggles that individuals face from birth through death and the beauty that exists in between all of the difficulties. BODY is an examination of our ego, prejudices, biases and the truth of what we can be if we choose to grow and live our soul’s truth. This piece is a collective experience for the community not just by telling a story, but also by encouraging art as a path to the healing and joy that we can all experience no matter our backgrounds or beliefs.

Today we talk about being storytellers, relationships, their work, ego and women in TV and film. Lots of fun, lots of laughs too!

And here’s the previous show with Maria we mentioned!

Today’s show was engineered Nick Panken host of Freedom Highway from radiokingston.org

We also heard music from Shana Falana!

#122 “The Worst Years” Podcast with Sabine, Noelle and Maeve

Today I have the honor of playing an interview I did with the three girls who are the hosts of The Worst Years podcast.

Maeve is an only child with two moms and a dog named Brooklyn. She lived in Brooklyn, NY, until she was eight (hence the name of her dog). This summer, she will turn 11. Maeve is a competitive gymnast and plays clarinet. Her favorite subjects in school are writing, reading, science, art, and anything related to music. Maeve loves hiking and biking and everything outdoors. She’s been going to Wild Earth since she was five. When she grows up, she wants to be an interior designer.

Sabine is the middle child of a big family that lives in a three-generational household. She plays cello and piano and will be 11 this summer. She wants to be a mathematician for NASA when she grows up, so she can study the stars. She became a vegetarian when she saw a billboard about animal rights. When asked what’s her favorite thing to do, she says, “Eat. Sleep. Play. Repeat.”

Noelle at age 10 3/4 is the youngest of two children and lives happily between her amicably split parents. Noelle loves reading and writing. She likes cats, playing the ukulele, comedy, and dislikes the color chartreuse. Noelle sings and plays string bass, and thrives on karaoke in her spare time. Bitten by the theater bug last year in the high school production of Matilda, she has developed a love of the stage, and when she grows up, Noelle wants to be an actor on Broadway!

We learn about the making of their podcast, middle school, their likes and dislikes and life during quarantine!

Today’s show was engineered by Manuel Blas of Radio Kingston, www.radiokingston.org.

We heard music from our fave, Shana Falana, http://www.shanafalana.com/ AND the girls’ suggestions: “Joke” by Brandi Carlile, “Would You Be So Kind” by Dodie, and “Bad Guy” by Billie Eilish

#98 “Artists and Activists” Helene Richman + Judith “Zelda” Miller

My first guest today is Helene Richman, a mom, wife, artist and creative force behind @brandhelene (Twitter, Facebook) who’s been working with a group of girl entrepreneurs, the Start Up Squad, at the Hodge Center in Kingston, NY. She’s been helping them learn about and build a business. I got to hang out with the girls a few weeks ago and talk about how to create their own radio show. After some prep and a little training, they all got to interview one another. I play some snippets of their interviews during today’s show as well as talk about what the girls have done in the program. After meeting with several entrepreneurs in the area the girls settled in on t-shirts for their business which they will debut at @madeinkingstonny this Thursday! Helene also shares about her corporate business experience and how she’s transferring that in to more service oriented roles. This year she organized the Hudson Valley Design Collective, (Facebook) focusing on upcycling used tectiles in an effort to help shift the waste in the clothing business. The Collective will also be at Made in Kingston along with Helene’s other endeavor with BlocArt, selling upcycled wood made by living wage workers in South Africa. No wonder this lady has another cold!

Next up is Zelda aka Judith Z. Miller @artistsoulspeaks an artist, actor, aspiring shaman and healer who’s talking about her work-in-progress solo show, Que Será, Será: A Life’s Journey of Sexual Orientation & Gender Expression. This multi-media show chronicles the joys and challenges of navigating non-binary Queerness from childhood in the 1950’s to adulthood. Zelda will be performing a work-in-progress production of the show on December 7 @ 8:30 pm & December 8 @ 3 pm at the @lgbtqcenter here in Kingston. Zelda shares about how she got into theater, some of the more powerful experiences she’s had like performing pieces in a women’s prison in Virginia, or a short piece that helped her heal her younger self who was forced to wear dresses against her wishes. Zelda is a gifted, open-hearted, magical and mystical being who has stories to share that are guaranteed to make you laugh, cry and most definitely think! If you can’t get to her live performance, Radio Kingston will be live streaming the Sunday show from their Facebook page which you can view any time ->->-> Check it out!!!

Today’s show was engineered by Maddy Bogner of Radio Kingston, http://www.radiokingston.org.

We heard music from our fave, Shana Falana, http://www.shanafalana.com/
