About Us

Pittsburgh's Premiere Arts, Entertainment, and Culture feed has moved! The service where this feed lives wasn't allowing us the access we needed to our own content, so we have moved here: http://writingonthefloor.libsyn.com/rss Everything else is the same! Same site, same social media, same old archive of episodes! Just a new feed. itunes feed is here. http://writingonthefloor.libsyn.com/rss Also, we don't want to name the service we are leaving by name, but they put their name at the end of the show description of every feed they house, so they are outing themselves here. This Podcast was created using www.talkshoe.com

Episode 42 - Brad Stephenson

Our guest this week is Brad Stephenson from ActClasy.com and The Act Classy Lunchbreak, a fantastic podcast wherein he and Joe Lyons eat lunch and riff, often with a notable guest. Brad is an actor, writer, standup comedian and very smart guy who is a breeze to talk to, and might be the most naturally funny guest we've had on the show to date.

Episode 41 - Matt Light

This week our guest is Matt Light. Matt is a local comedian who has been doing stand up for about 5 years. He recently started to go out on the road, touring with some guys like Aaron Kleiber and John Winters, after he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He changed a lot of his material to be about that, and adapted his rougher style to be more honest and approachable, and it seems to have worked for him. Matt talks about getting past his cancer (he is done with Chemo!) comedy styles, The Pirates (hey hey!) and a whole lot more.

Episode 40 - Josh Raulerson

This week my guest is Josh Raulerson, local host of NPR's "Morning Edition" on 90.5 WESA, Pittsburgh's FM News Station. Many people know Josh (or his voice, at least) from their morning commute, and while most probably realize he is intellectual and witty, it's likely that few realize how highly educated Josh is, or how long he has been working radio. Josh has his Phd. in English and stated broadcasting all the way back in his high school days in Iowa. Josh sits down to talk education, media, Pittsburgh, and the future of public broadcasting.

Episode 38 - Chris DeRose

This week my guest is Chris DeRose. Chris is a Latrobe native, Second City Alum and morning show correspondent for "You and Me in the Morning" on WCIU out of Chicago, Chris worked his way through the improv and acting scene in Chicago and through some side-jobs ended up on the hit regional morning show that eventually lead him to viral internet fame with the spitting lady video. Chris is so much more than that though, as he formally studied theater and history, and brings an incredible work-ethic and honestly kind personality to his work.

Episode 37 - Faceburgh with Matte BraidiÄ?

This week we talk to the Matte BraidiÄ?, the photographer and artist behind the wildly popular "Faceburgh" project. Matte is painting a portrait of our city, one face at a time, with his candid and beautifully shot photos. He sits down with Zach to talk about the project, how he got started, what matters to him and to share an invite to the opening of his exhibition at the South Side Welcome Center on September 19. You can find the project at facebook.com/faceburgh. This episode is brought to you by Arcade Comedy Theater's Thursday Night Podcast Series.

EPISODE 36 - Sarah Humphrey

This week our guest is Sarah Humphrey, of The Inn - an art gallery and multi-purpose art space in Upper Lawrenceville. I met Sarah through her dad (and previous guest) Charlie Humphrey, and it is clear from our talk that she has inherited her dad's appreciation for the arts, and culture. She has a long list of credentials in art management and art history, and she is one of those people who embrace all things artistic and subversive, and encourage the world to shake things up!

EPISODE 35 - Ruckus Improv

This week our guests are three members of Ruckus (Brett, Mallory and Kyle)! It seems that every college or university has at least one improv comedy group. Pitt was the exception. So last year a Phd. Student with experience and several undergrads came together to form Ruckus Improv. They are workhorses and now play all over the city... at Steel City Improv Theater, Arcade Comedy Theater, random facilities at University of Pittsburgh. NOTE: This episode includes NSFW language!

EPISODE 34 - Live from Arcade Comedy Theater with Rick Sebak!

Our first live episode! On June 27th we took over Arcade Comedy Theater in the heart of the cultural district for an exciting night of comedy, music and interviews. We had standup comedy from Tim Ross (@Tim_Is_Win), storytelling from the equally funny Derek Minto, New Victorians were the musical guest, and our featured guest was WQED's Rick Sebak! The show was a lot of fun, and it was sponsored by Penn Brewery! One note: we had a slight mixup with recording the audio from the sound board, so what you will hear is what we picked up from the mic on the desk on stage. It isn't too bad, but we apologize that it isn't the pristine audio we intended!
