44: The Merch Guy

This one is really exciting. I interviewed Ricky Winowieckie (pronounced vee-no-vee-eh-ski) from Ann Arbor Tees, the company that produces merch for Elsie Fest! (And also Elsie alums Darren Criss, StarKid, and Computer Games.)

Ricky wants to be remembered as a lover of dogs

Ricky and I go way into the weeds about how merch is developed and produced for Elsie Fest, how he first met the StarKids and Darren, and even where he parks his van during Elsie Fest weekend.

AND there’s a sale right now on official Elsie Fest, Darren Criss, and Computer Games merch! Check it out.

Ann Arbor Tees also does merch for Tin Can Bros, who currently have a show off-Broadway. Go check out The Solve It Squad this week, and while you’re there say hi to stage manager (and podcast guest) Adam Brunetti.

Here’s the official t-shirt of this episode. Lou used to have a vlog called StarKid Pity Party.

26: Adam Brunetti backstage at Elsie Fest 2016

If you’re looking for the FAQ about Elsie Fest 2017, it’s here.

Episode 26 is here, and it features Adam Brunetti! You can listen to it here: https://elsiecast.podbean.com/e/26-adam-brunetti-backstage-at-elsie-fest-2016/

Adam is a freelance event producer and he was backstage at Elsie Fest 2016 helping out his buddy Darren Criss.

We talk about that (Adam has some great stories) and speculate wildly about what might happen at Elsie Fest 2017. And talk about some other stuff.

Also, I reviewed Elsie alum Aaron Tveit’s production of Company at Barrington Stage Company. I mean, he’s in it, he didn’t direct it or anything. But he’s Bobby, so it’s kind of all about him.

Just thinking about Adam makes me ramble and tangential. So you can imagine what the episode is like. But I learned how to add music and do fades and properly beep swears (you kiss your mother with that mouth, Adam?) so you can enjoy all of that stuff and my husband the Sound Mixer says I got all my levels right so that’s some good work right there.

Also, we talked about stuff from past episodes like Julie James and Larry Hochman, so you can check those out by clicking their names.

Oh, and here’s a video of my friend James dancing with Lin-Manuel Miranda.
