DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

Dennis visits the Burbank home of actor and writer Kimleigh Smith a week after seeing her searing, inspiring and hilarious one-woman show T-O-T-A-L-L-Y! The show documents her real-life journey of being gang raped in college, completely repressing it for eight years, recalling it again through hypnosis and then working through the pain of it to reclaim her body, her sexuality and her life. She talks about how donating a kidney led her to start writing, the men with the nicknames that helped her discover her sexuality, allowing herself to be vulnerable and trying--and failing--to be a lesbian. Other topics include: the "hover move," the crisis of masculinity, porn stars who smile, her 17 year-old alter ego in her head who loves to rain all over her parade, taking the show to Lithuania, her company Embrace Your Cape, kicking her addiction to bad men, getting inspiration from Jill Scott, finding her voice, owning your body and her mission to change the world.
