Award-winning Chicano-content focused Director Marvin Lemus comes on and gets nasty talking about both the guilt and the drive that comes from being an immigrant (or 2nd generation) and working in a creative field. We also talk about dealing with anxiety, activism, identity, YouTube, creating meaningful work, self-talk, love, and, you guessed it, more.
Marvin is an extremely talented filmmaker and a long-time friend and close collaborator with Igor. They worked together making sketches with their group, The Kids Table (http://www.youtube.com/thekidstablecomedy), as well as creating all the online promotional videos for the Lionsgate film, "Dear White People" (directed by podcast guest Justin Simien).
Marvin is currently in post-production on his Web Series, Gente-fied, which is Executive Produced by America Ferrera.
