 Recap one | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 7857

This is a recap of episode one (first eight podcast episodes). Of Music and Men was created to be a television series. Still working toward that, this project continues to grow. I decided to turn each of the those television episodes into its own novella. For this podcast, you're hearing those novellas broken up into sub-episodes that you get each week. The last eight podcast-episodes that you've heard make up the pilot for the TV show (and for that matter, the first novella).

 Q&A: E1 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2893

In this Q&A episode, Kayona answers questions about Of Music and Men, talks about her heroes Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Issa Rae, gives insight about the goal for the project, and provides details about how we got to this point. 1. What is the goal for this approach to the project? 2. Tell us how the podcast differs from the novellas, how the novellas differ from the TV scripts, but what they all have in common. 3. You start each episode with what you call a "cold open". How or why did you want to do this? 4. How would you describe your writing style? 5. The music is very important. Tell us about the journey (past, present, and future) of the music. 6. What can we expect moving forward?

 Official Trailer | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 655

Coming December 2019. Of Music and Men is a scripted drama-comedy series presented to you in a weekly storytelling podcast format. For an advance preview of the first three episodes, go to https://ofmusicandmen.com/review. You thought it was a book, or a short film, or a TV show? Well, all of that is true. Somewhat. Let me explain. Back in 2012, I set out to create a TV show about my life as a single young entrepreneur trying to establish an indie record company in Wash DC. I developed it, wrote the pilot, then made a short film... The thing is, tv shows, even those no budget YouTube ones, still require lots of resources and people. I know exactly what I want the tv show to be, but I believe that timing is everything, and trying to move forward before it's time would be a disservice to what I know will be a great series someday. So I went another route. The pilot script was recognized in a few reputable industry contests, so knowing that it's a more than solid story worth telling, I made a short film, then I turned that full season I wrote, 12 episodes of tv scripts, into novellas (little booklets). This podcast is a production, a reading (sometimes dramatic or comedic), of those episodes, sectioned out into easily digestible weekly stories. We follow a 20-something named Kenya Shaw as she works to build a record label while also (as a bachelorette) navigating perhaps the worst city in the country for single women (and not exactly the place you'd expect when it comes to entertainment) -- Washington, DC. Tune in every single week for these stories of music... and men.
