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.

For this webseries-themed episode, Dennis visits the home and office of Joe Dietl, one of the producers and stars (along with Ben Zook and Rick Kopp) of the hit webseries "Where the Bears Are." Dennis's other guest is Kieran Turner, creator of the webseries "Wallflowers." The pair discuss the inspiration for their webseries, what it took to get them made and the heartening and surprising reactions they've gotten from fans. Joe also discusses becoming a bear sex symbol, rewarding his Kickstarter donors with art and the Catalina misadventure that almost sank the show. Kieran talks about his connection to the New York theater scene, having to switch actors like Darren Stevens on "Bewitched," and his acclaimed 2012 documentary "Jobriath A.D.," about the late openly gay 70's glam rocker who was called "the American Bowie." Joe and Kieran also share their childhood TV crushes, the times they were starstruck and what it was like to shoot on Judy Garland's yacht. (Both Joe and Kieran will both appear on the panel "Web Series: In with the New Out" at Outfest on July 11th at 11:30 Am at DGA2.)
