I met Candice through my manager Matt Chassin. We met at a horror festival down in San Diego and the first she said to me was 'I want to die in a horror film; and I want to die in a blaze of glory.'

Happy First Year Anniversary

https://open.spotify.com/episode/63kGpuOxOGZ3FJFbW45jkR Mimosas with Michael on Spotify In September of 2017 I approached my friend Richard Trejo and told him I wanted to launch my own podcast. He was gracious enough at the time to open his home studio for me to record at. He even served as my engineer - and was my third guest on the show! I was fairly new to podcasting - I suppose even one year in I would still be considered a newbie - I just knew I had a good idea and that I loved talking! My first several guests called into the show as Richard's studio was not in Los Angeles and we scheduled around both of our active film schedules. Having guests call in was easier. I would schedule two or three in one afternoon and then we would edit them and release them every other week. Then as ...
