This is a very exciting time for The JellyVision Show team as every single one of us is now, officially, a creative entrepreneur!  There will be lots of news and announcements in the New Year as various projects, events and businesses get launched. We can't wait to share everything with you. We are all up to something--It must be contagious!  Before welcoming our guests, we talk about the importance of mentors in your business. Alexis and Jelly are also addicted to the Serial Podcast and believe it's extreme popularity will lead to even more podcast fans!

This week on The JellyVision Show Podcast, we talk to copyright attorney and musician, Howard Flood about his quest to pivot his law career into a platform to help indie musicians with the legal and business side of the industry. He is doing this through the Vinny Van Geaux Project. Vinny is a re-purposed puppet that Howard is using to help deliver this kind of information through a series of YouTube videos. Stay tuned for the video series and give Howard and Vinny feedback when the project is launched. You can also hear Howard regularly on the Papa's Basement Podcast!

Joining the conversation is 74 year old protest singer, Denny Mcdougal from Greenwich Village, NY. Denny sings us some of his original songs which sound very familiar. Luckily, Howard is here to help the lovable musician who currently gets paid in sandwiches at the local PotBelly Sandwich Shop (Formerly the Pig & Bustle Coffee Haus).


**Special Thanks to Luke Hennig for bringing Denny to life! Luke is a DC improviser with The Lodge and sketch writer/performer with Bad Medicine.
