  • Support from parents 1:54
  • If you could practice any other art form... 2:58
  • Kevin Spacey 3:20
  • Who inspires you? 3:24
  • Kevin Durant and confidence 4:30
  • What was your musical "moment"? 5:24
  • Basketball & stress relief 6:03
  • Shout out to Ma'ayan 6:42
  • Flash Mob & accessibility 7:18
  • Feminist critique of Miley Cyrus criticisms 8:17
  • Who's your favorite pop artist? 9:26
  • Autotune & Photoshop, Andy Dwyer 10:26

We hope you enjoy listening to this episode with Wyeth as much as we enjoyed producing it!

Until next time,
Hannah and Davis

I didn't know about the flashmob at the Air and Space Museum until this podcast and now I looked it up AND I LIKE IT SO MUCH. Thanks for mentioning it, Wyeth!

(Also sleep. Sleep is good. Do the sleep.)
