EP66 - Ani Pandit - 'The Mad Ones' Director/Writer/Producer

The Mad Ones.jpg

Drawing on his experiences working in ad sales in the heart of Silicon Valley, writer and director - and former “Googler” - Aniruddh Pandit has crafted the film as a loving satire of millennial angst. The Mad Ones explores the unique subcultures of the digital age - from “entrepreneurettes” who get rich by monetizing their dating lives to utopian ad agencies where executives are given personal yogis. While navigating through these modern-day absurdities, the film drives towards timeless antidotes: love and friendship. The Mad Ones is a smart, funny, and heartwarming story about the friendship that forms between three young professionals searching for meaning in work and life.

EP65 - Mick Conlon - 'String Ninjas'

String Ninjas.jpg

What do you get when you combine the virtuosity of a classically trained violinist with the groove and hard hitting bass of a self-taught fingerstyle guitarist? One answer would be complete and utter madness, the other being the instrumental musings of the String Ninjas. Formed in early 2017 by Gavin Ferris (Guitar) and Mick Conlon (Violin), the Sting Ninjas have hit the ground running and have amazed audiences with their upbeat, fresh live performances which include witty banter, self-depreciation, alcohol and of course the odd song or two. With these guys no genre is safe.

This week I am joined by a great friend. Actor Bobby Bonehill came over to the flat thinking he was just going to watch Wrestlemania with me. Instead we decided to set up the Creativity Talks microphone. We then chatted wrestling, friendship, training, acting for commercials, acting as a skin character, meeting celebrities, minding at Insomnia 56 and a pointless fox. It was a delight to have him on the podcast.
