It's Monstark Monday, time for a new episode of Monstark & Me! This episode is an Ouroboros. Somehow, everything winds up full circle. Fleas have Bryan questioning his very sanity, Monstark wants people to use critical thinking on Social Media, and we respond to a message from a listener. Buckle up, it's a long, bumpy ride.

NEW PODCAST: FOREST OF IMMORTALS

I'm proud and excited to announce my new podcast, Forest of Immortals! It's a weekly interview series featuring my conversations with creative people of all kinds. In each episode I speak with one person about their creative life, inspiration and thoughts on the bigger picture. The creative process is fun to discuss, but I'm especially interested in the themes and beliefs behind the work, how the world is perceived by the creator, what's under the surface.

In this debut episode, I interview Nic Caesar!

The spooky intro music is provided courtesy of my friend Jean Baudin (whom I've also interviewed for a later episode!). He's an incredible musician playing some insane instruments with beautiful, moody and video game soundtrack vibes, so go check him out!

I'm thankful to everyone who's participated thus far, and I'm extremely lucky to know such wonderful creative people and to have the ability to chat with them and ask them strange questions. Please, have a listen, subscribe/follow, and share if you can, because there are a bunch more interviews to come. To make it easy, you can find all my podcasts and episodes on my Podcasts page! Thank you!
