Ep. 65 Bryan Young

Bryan Young is a co-host on In The Mouth of Dorkness, a podcast covering all things geek and movies. In this episode, we talk about embracing what you love even when others don't, why our favorite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles change with age, and taking the leap into starting your own business. Also, I try and get Bryan to break down his obsession with the Power Rangers. You can follow Bryan on Twitter, Letterboxd, and Instagram.

 

AND if you love movies, you have to check out ITMODcast. I've interviewed all four co-hosts because I love ITMODcast so much. These guys dig deep with their love of film and share their personal stories at the same time. It's very addictive. Trust me.
