Cheers Sexy People!
Christmas is coming early this year! Yeah baby! I am so thrilled and honored to share our latest podcast interview with an extremely talented, driven, and inspiring woman – an award-winning director, writer and content creator extraordinaire! Her latest achievement is a provocative Web Series called COMPERSION, a family drama about a couple exploring polyamory. Jackie is on a mission to create a movement to tell dynamic, diverse and interesting stories! As I discovered in our interview together, Jackie is not herself polyamorous, but she is fascinated with the concept, and loves digging in and truly immersing herself and learning about new things. I got the distinct impression that she has a deep respect for other’s living their lives however they choose, and that she enjoys helping educate society on wonderful ways to lead a fulfillng life – even if it is outside the norm or conventional wisdom. In this episode, we discuss the challenges of making a very low budget production while being committed to a quality series, as well as the different elements that go into making a series. Jackie also goes into the type of programming Enchant TV seeks to develop and explore as they move forward. I am so incredibly excited that Ms. Stone reached out to Loving Without Boundaries to be featured here as our guest. Thank you, Jackie, for creating this epic and awesome series, and giving us the behind the scenes look into creating such a body of work. You are AWESOME, Jackie! So inspiring!
