"Most of us have two lives. The life we live and the unlived life within us. Between the two stands Resistance."

-Stephen Pressfield, The War of Art

Welcome to The Resistance.

Over 2,000 interviews in nearly 20 years. That's my journey as a journalist in pursuit of meaningful stories from artists of all kinds—musicians, directors, authors, actors, and more. Most of my interviews end up centered on a single idea, a single struggle. Everyone feels it—the distance and tension between our present situation and our future goals. That counteractive force—the fear, the apathy, the lack of resources—that's the Resistance.

Introducing The Resistance, a new podcast featuring honest conversations with artists discussing their own struggles. The hope is that we'll all find a way forward together.
