After a ruckus start to the show, they recap their time getting stuck in the elevator after last week’s show. They then go into the concept of authenticity and how it relates to them and this month’s theme focusing on moms. Playwright Craig Silver calls in to discuss his play Cyberbabies. He tells Joan and Priya what inspired him to write the musical and what it is all about.
Bad Mom’s Life Producer Nicole DeFusco calls in to discuss her life as an entrepreneur, as a mother and what authenticity means to her. Joan and Priya then introduce their in-studio guests Tricia Brouk of TedX Lincoln Square and Jenn Lederer; both of whom worked together to produce the film “Just Enough.” Joan delves into Jenn’s background as a motivational speaker and how Jenn and Tricia met each other.
They go 3 for 3 with Katie Claire. This week, Katie continues the May theme of celebrating mothers by talking about the ways parents either restrict or allow their children freedoms to explore their career passions. She instills the importance moms have in impacting the ambitions of their children. Joan and Priya continue their interview with Tricia and Jenn to discuss their film “Just Enough” asking them what the film is about, how they worked with one another making the film, how the film addresses authenticity, and how important mothers play in the film.
Jenn continues from the interview by discussing the mechanics of motivational comedy. They then get a call from Sara Boyken of Project Potential. Sara tells Joan and Priya what her role in Project Potential is, what Project Potential’s goals are and how they will help communities.
