Movies Made Me

Virtually every one of us has had a film experience that altered us in some way, that gave us a passion, a fear, a way of looking at the world. I task my guests with talking about the five movies that have made them, well, them! We'll explore how each movie changed them, while also looking at three other influences, from the broad spectrum of their experience, that made them who they are today.


episode 129: Casey Merkling

Casey Merkling, Founding Teacher of Yoga Squared in Tustin, CA sat down with me to chat about the movies that made her the unique woman she is today. Join us, as we discuss shouting from the rooftops, leaning into the red, allowing the sky to clear, and the Rolodex of Seinfeld.
