42. Taking One's Own Path

October 11, 2016


EXTRA! EXTRA! For the first time in HISTORY, Overthought welcomes a guest co-host! Vivien Shotwell – author, singer, and GP (Good Pal) – joins Chris and Isaiah to discuss a matter very close to our hearts: "Taking One's Own Path."

All three of us devote a part of our working lives to a non-singing pursuit, despite traditional wisdom that discourages singers from attempting to be bi-vocational. And in the absence of appropriate role models, we all ask ourselves the same questions: If no one else has taken my path, how can I know if I'm fooling myself about its potential success? Is my parallel pursuit a distraction, or does it fulfill an essential need in me? Is there a way to do it without compromising?

After a three-month hiatus (a marriage, a honeymoon, and a major moving of house) Overthought is back, in a fresh three-headed format, for Season 2.
