LjPresents: Annegret Steioff
Annegret Steioff is an actress comedian and has been featured in many short films from her home country and now she’s making a name for herself in the U.S.   Annegret was born and raised in a tiny German town that always smelled like burnt chocolate. Until she was three years old she lived with a Turkish Muslim immigrant family because her mom decided she would rather smell the roses. She was a florist. Annegret was supposed to take over the family business but she decided to go to university instead. If only she had chosen something REAL like Law, Agriculture or backpiping. Instead she got her BA in Acting, WON (!) the green card and moved to the us. Annegret gets her humor from her dad who was once approached about not cutting his grass and decided to bulldozer the garden, fill it with concrete and paint it green. That's also how Annegret learned about concrete burn.   Check out some of her stuff by following the links below. https://youtu.be/FWFYMxv2-8I Annegret Steioff in "Zusammen ist man weniger allein" Annegret Steioff in "Das exaltierte Fräulein" von Lope de Vega You can check me out on my website at ljeffreymoore.com Music Featured on the Show: Intro  I dunno by grapes (c) copyright 2008 Licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution (3.0) license.  http://dig.ccmixter.org/files/grapes/16626 Ft: J Lang, Morusque  Outro  The Vendetta by Stefan Kartenberg (c) copyright 2018 Licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution (3.0) license.  http://dig.ccmixter.org/files/JeffSpeed68/58628 Ft: Apoxode

Lj Presents: Tyrel Ventura
Tyrel Ventura is one of my good friends that I've known for about 20 years.  I met him when I was living in Minneapolis at the tail end of his  father's (Jesse Ventura) term as governor of Minnesota.  Before he began his career as a news commentator for RT's Watching the Hawks he began making short films and being a part of a few independent features.  His training for all this came from real world experience as he worked for academy award winner Sean Penn as his personal assistant.  It was there that he began to learn from veteran   filmmakers like Clint Eastwood and Alejandro G. Iñárritu.  From there he relocated to Los Angeles Ca where he produced tv shows like Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura and the films:  The Wanderers, American Rescue Squad, and my short film The Rage.  It was then that he met his co-anchor and friend Tabetha Wallace as they aired the YouTube news commentary show: Buzzsaw.  With the success of Buzzsaw Tyrel pitched a new show to RTtv and Watching the Hawks was created and is now enjoying 2 seasons of being on the air.   We began our conversation talking about past tv shows video games and the movies that we saw and liked.  We later talked about life in DC and the difference between working in the Hollywood system and commenting on the political system and main stream media  in DC and the rest of the U.S.  Enjoy.
