#41: George Basil
It's the Magnet Theater Podcast's ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY (!!!) and to celebrate, we've got Magnet alumnus George Basil on the show. George stopped by while he was in town for the theater's 10th Anniversary and talked to host Louis Kornfeld about getting into improv, Michael Keaton, and the art of living. These two friends who met in the Magnet's first Level 2 improv class fill this episode with artistic philosophies, discussing nonlinear skill progression, rallying against the monetization of art, and how that which inhibits us also enables us to be great. Plus, find out the artisan job George took when first moving to NYC and where that scar came from. This is a feel-good episode if there every was one and we can't imagine a better way to celebrate our one year anniversary than with an old friend. Check it out!
