This week I talk to Maximilian Uriarte, Veteran Marine and Creator of the widely popular webcomic, Terminal Lance. He did two tours of duty in Iraq and during his second tour took on the role of Marine Corps Artist and Photographer, giving him the opportunity to fly all over and document the Marine Experience in Iraq. Last year he released his first graphic novel, the White Donkey which was on the New York Times Bestseller list and received rave reviews for its honest depiction of the life and struggles of a Veteran Marine.

Finally, we discuss her newly released web comic that she co-created with Karen Schneemann, called The Mean Magenta. The Mean Magenta seeks to destigmatize periods by providing entertaining comics as well as health resources.

I talk to Gabi Holzwarth, referred to by many as the Violin Girl of Silicon Valley. She is a talented violinist with perfect pitch and has performed at many events around the Bay Area and the world. She quit her job in sales and started playing the violin in the street full time. It was there that many tech executives discovered her and she began playing at private parties and events.
