We are back! We took a week off last week to revamp our show by changing up our format a bit. Don't worry you still get to hear our lovely voices wax lyrical about all that is Covid 19 and our lives in quarantine but we've added a new call in interview segment! Excited to debut it today on our 11th episode with our special guest and long time friend from Orlando Florida Mr. Omar Mendez.

On this episode Kath and I start the show off right away with diving into the current events that have been rocking our country through out the past week with the mass protests against police violence toward people of color spawned from the unjust killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. We discuss our roles in this movement as people of white privilege and how people like us can best be supportive and understanding of this movement. Following that up we get into catching up on all that is Covid-19 here in the USA with talks of re-openings, cases and deaths counts, potential vaccines on the horizon and our stance of 80 plus days in quarantine.

Then it's onto the debut of our newest segment with a phone conversation joined by Omar Mendez from Orlando Florida. Omar, a good friend of mine who I attended film school with in Orlando is an instructor at Full Sail University and runs a video production company with his wife Marianthy. Their company specializes in event videography, wedding slow-motion booths and a of recent live web broadcasting. We talk in detail about the pivot Omar has had to endure within his teachings at Full Sail and within his own business due to the current Covid-19 crisis. We also dive into what life has been like for Omar and his wife living in Orlando during the quarantine and his thoughts on what the future holds.

Thanks again to Omar for joining us on this maiden voyage for our new segment. We will be aiming to do phone interviews every week on the show so if you or someone you know may be interested in participating in one feel free to drop me an email personally and we can set something up (tombarile4@gmail.com). Thanks again for listening! See ya next week!
