Elaine Hendrix Saves Animals

Elaine Hendrix Saves Animals

Elaine Hendrix is best known for her starring role on FX’s Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll and the Parent Trap.  She has also had many second chances.  Her biggest second chance these days is for the animals in the world who need advocates and have no voice.  She is their second chance.  This inspiring and funny podcast will make you think and challenge you.

Born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Elaine Hendrix spent her early years in nearby Knoxville and Morristown. At 15 she moved with her divorced mother to Atlanta, Georgia, where she attended the Northside School of Performing Arts. She started her professional career as a dancer and model but gave up dance after she was hit by a car while bicycling.

She moved to Los Angeles in 1992 and had an agent within a month. She worked her way from commercials to TV guest shots to a starring role on the 1995 Fox revival of “Get Smart” (1995) to features. As an actress, Elaine has 124 credits to her name including “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll” (2015-2016), “The Parent Trap” (1998), and “Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion” (1997). She also has served multiple projects as producer, writer, or director.

Elaine is also an activist passionate about animals, health, and equal rights. She is a big believer in mind-body-spirit wellness and supports traditional as well as alternative healing methods. She champions several organizations that support various health challenges. Elaine also holds tolerance and acceptance high, supporting the ACLU, Gay Straight Alliance and the National Center for Human and Civil Rights, just to name a few. Her serious passion is for animals, though. When she’s not on a set or a stage she’s traveling the country rescuing, transporting, fostering, adopting, speaking, protesting, demonstrating, lobbying, educating, building habitats and providing care all on their behalf. She launched a multimedia resource to help pet parents at any stage of the journey with their pet called The Pet Matchmaker.

Joey Feldman Is On Fire!

Joey Feldman Is On Fire!

Accused by his mother of killing his father, renowned artist Joey Feldman turns tragedy into triumph.

The Joey Feldman print that Greg has in his studio.

Joey talks about his life, from stealing the family silverware to fuel his habit to his father dying in his arms, to his mother’s cancer treatments; his story is filled with amazing ups and downs. He talks about his recent past when he moved in with his girlfriend, Mo: “I was painting restaurants, doing decorative faux finishing to make ends meet. I was miserable I was in a spiritual prison. She said, ‘You’re not drawing anymore – you’re miserable.’ She gave me $100 and sent me to the art store. ‘I want you to draw every day and put it on Facebook. Really commit to it.’”

His influencers, Ralph Steadman, Picasso, Francis Bacon, his fiancee, and his cat keep him going, working, and drawing. Joey now has a line of pens, sketchbooks and ink, and his prints are available for purchase. “I was on fire, I’m still on fire.”

Relationships, vulnerability, creativity, and mistakes: nothing is off the table.
