Bottom Line: Troy Valjean Rucker and Kristen Griffith-VanderYacht

Episode 42! Chatting it up with the creators of the Drama Queenz on the performing arts, jobs, auditioning, and general advice about making it in the business in NYC.

This was a really fun podcast to record. I met Troy through Garrett in December 2012. Prior to that, I had only know him as one of the guys from the youtube web series "Drama Queenz." In December 2013 I met Kristen at a Christmas concert he had organized. It was a cute little collection of Christmas songs, performed at a small church in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. From there, we got to talking, and they were guests. 

The conversation really last a long time. We talked about SO much that didn't make it into the final cut. Troy and Kristen, in this episode, talk about the NYC artist's struggle, and about making it as an actor of color. Hope you enjoy!
