Welcome to 2019. A great way to start is by listening to this episode with Bernardo Cubria. He’s an Actor, Writer, Playwright, Podcast & Lover of Guacamole.
And I caught up with Bernardo a few weeks back. It was a bit of a unique recording as you’ll hear. It could even lead to a whole new podcast series where I interview guests while their driving. Who knows!
Note – we had planned to do this on live video, but the recording wasn’t great due to Bernardo being on the move. We might get together again in the future to do a live stream. It all depends on the demand. Let me know if you’d like to chat with Bernardo!
