Terrified with Dave Ross & Anna Seregina

Joey Izzo is a filmmaker in Los Angeles, CA.  He's great.  Dave's a big fan of his.  They talk about the oversaturation of people with art and culture and "content" in the modern world, and how they think its both hurt and helped their lives.  They also talk about detachment from your loved ones, and not being present in your relationships.  Near the end, they discussed changes in DAVE.  It was a great conversation.  They both thought so.  For real.

Greg Katz is a musician in Los Angeles, and bass player for the band LA Font, who wrote the Terrified theme song!  Or rather, they wrote a song named Strangest Dream, and then graciously donated it years later to be the Terrified theme song.  Regardless, Dave and Greg talk about the music scene, and the comedy scene, and their similarities to one another, and the ways that one can do wrong while coming up in either.  It was a huge relief to both of them that it's so similar in other art forms, and also horrifying, for the exact same reason.

Baron Vaughn is an L.A.-based comedian and actor.  He and Dave discuss his fear that he'll never get out from under his debt, and that he'll be judged for doing so.  They dive pretty deep, and we'll say no more than that here.  Enjoy.
