A gifted character actor, Sarah Jones could be on SNL. Instead, chose to take her brilliantly funny embodiments of humans you know, maybe even you, to tackle poverty, prostitution, and now, "pussy grabbing." She reveals what it was like to work with Meryl Streep on Jones's Tony and Obie Award-winning show Bridge and Tunnel. Her latest show Sell/Buy/Date is a must see. We also spoke about Meryl Streep, Gil Scott-Heron, and Alan Alda, who I interviewed at the same live taping, so check out that Employee of the Month interview as well. Our next live taping is Thursday, March 16th if you are in New York, come! www.employeeofthemonthshow.com @CatieLazarus

Fr. Riccardo preached at all of the weekend Masses this past weekend to continue the Rerouting series. Fr. John looks to scripture to reveal Mary as the new Eve and Jesus as the new Adam. He continues by discussing why Jesus came, and how He has restored the bridge by laying down His life for us. In addition to the Sunday homilies, the parish is hosting Wednesday evening Rerouting Deeper Dive sessions to help pave the way. Resources for Rerouting, including video taped sessions and outlines, may be found on the parish website.

Our guest this week is Benji Rogers, British-born, New York-based entrepreneur, technologist, musician, and the founder of Pledge Music. As an early pioneer of the direct artist-to-fan model of distributing music, Benji founded Pledge Music based on the belief that artists should share the process of their artistic output, not just the finished product. In addition to his work with Pledge, Benji is also the co-founder of the Dot Blockchain Music Project, an attempt to create a decentralized global registry of music rights using blockchain technology that will overhaul the commercialization and movement of music online. We had a great chat with Benji about Pledge Music, the importance of superfans, and the advice he'd offer to musicians and music industry entrepreneurs. Highlights: - Benji schools us with a Michael Bolton related Office Space quote - Marcio shares his personal experience of Pledge Music with Benji - Benji shares how the team are the key to Pledge Music’s success - “Technology is a huge piece of Pledge Music, but it’s the humans behind the technology that make it work” - Benji tells us why he started Pledge Music - “If all music is crowdfunded by fans, what difference does it make WHEN people pay for it?” - Benji Rogers - There’s a percentage of music fans who want to pay more - and we have to give them this option - Benji shares how it’s more about attracting the right fans, rather than a huge number of fans - “The way artists interact with their superfans will be the difference between those who make it and those who don’t” - Benji Rogers - “Fans don’t need more ways to consume music - they need reasons” - Benji Rogers - Benji talks about how the internet has enabled for direct interaction between artist and fan - Benji shares that he believes that moving forward, artists will start measuring Return on Attention rather than Return on Investment - We talk about the power of your mailing list, and Benji shares tips for growing your list - Benji shares his advice for musicians and music industry entrepreneurs Advice: - When crowdfunding, be honest about why you’re doing this and why - Offer an experience that is better than what they can get on YouTube or streaming services Guest Links: - Pledge Music: http://pledgemusic.com - Dot Blockchain: http://dotblockchainmusic.com - Twitter: @benjikrogers - Instagram: @benjikrogers Sponsors: - Chris Keaton @ Chris Keaton Presents - Christine Infanger @ Thirty Roses - Joe Settineri - Music Launch Hub - Buck Naked Soap Company --- For more episodes, visit http://bridge-the-atlantic.com Follow us on Twitter: http://twitter.com/bridge_atlantic Subscribe on iTunes: http://bridge-the-atlantic.com/itunes Support us on Patreon: http://patreon.com/bridgetheatlantic
