Award winning film maker, Ondi Timoner has mastered the art of the long form documentary.  She received critical acclaim for Dig! her compelling portrayal of two indie rock bands, "The Brian Jonestown Massacre" and "The Dandy Warhols" led by doppleganger frontmen, Anton Newcombe and Courtney Taylor Taylor.  Timoner spent seven years of her life chronicling the fascinating psychodrama of two bands that loved each other as each were headed in dramatically different directions.

After Dig!  She jumped right back into another epic project called "We Live In Public."  In it, she spent over ten years documenting the life of internet pioneer, Josh Harris.  Harris and a group of artists in New York chose to live online, 24-7 in a building called "The Terrarium" whihc was loaded, top-to-bottom with cameras and mcs.  Harris was out to prove how people would trade privacy for popularity in the coming virtual age.

Critcally acclaimed, the late Roger Ebert gave the film four stars while saying, " "This is a remarkable film about a strange and prophetic man."

Ondi is at it again with her latest project, "A Total Disruption" which chronicles over 300 internet pioneers, their stories, their concepts and their additions to evolving the most important development in human history since the printing press.  We'll talk about ATD and how she plans on delivering this treasure trove of history

We'll discuss crowd funding and the power to fuel creative enterprises like ATD through kickstarter.

In the first hour, I'll have Mancalledclay on, and we'll get into his new record, "BringING" and his creative process as well.
