In Episode 284, Trev and AJ talk food allergies, the next steps in AJ’s career, and cultivating a “mind like water.” Then Trev sits down for Part 2 of his conversation with actor, director, and producer Judyann Elder (Murphy Brown, Family Matters, Martin).
Part 2 of our chat with Judyann picks up with her move to Los Angeles—in an era that was not unlike today, in many ways. It was a time of exploitation films, of racism, and of an industry that can (and regularly did) overwhelm even the boldest and most talented artists.
In this episode, Judyann shares more stories from her multi-decade journey through the entertainment industry, not the least of which is what she feels “saved” her, how the artistic, social, and personal challenges she faces both have and haven’t changed, and—perhaps most powerfully—what she’s learned as a breast cancer survivor.
We hope you enjoy Part 2 of this in-depth conversation with Judyann.
Mind like steel, mind like water,
