In this episode of the podcast Joe welcomes back former guest and great friend Rebekah Kennedy to the podcast!

Rebekah stopped by the show to discuss her latest movie: Los Angeles, and specifically her character 'Jojo' in the film. What transpires is a spoiler-free in-depth look at Jojo in the film, what the process was like for Rebekah, and a brief discussion on upcoming releases (such as 'Two Witches' where Rebekah plays the character 'Masha')

Enjoy!

About Rebekah Kennedy

Rebekah Kennedy, born in Texas, began acting on the stage. Rebekah spent all of her time doing theatre and it wasn't until after she received her B.A. in Musical Theatre from Palm Beach Atlantic University, did she truly discover the screen.

When 2010 hit, it quickly showed it would be a promising year. Soon came an amazing opportunity when Rebekah booked a lead role as 15-year-old Hanna in the feature, "House Hunting" with Marc Singer and Art LaFleur and then went on to play 14-year-old Caroline Boutine in the feature, "Creature," starring Mehcad Brooks and Serinda Swan. Then came another wonderful opportunity when she booked a supporting role in the feature, "Season of the Witch" with Nicolas Cage.

In 2011, Rebekah made her television debut on the TNT show, "Memphis Beat." She also had a guest star role in the long running TV show "Criminal Minds" on CBS in 2016, the lead guest star Esther Labott in The Book of Esther on "Law & Order SVU" on NBC in 2018, and as the crazy drug addict Melly Wyatt in "Station 19" on ABC.

Rebekah first hit the big screen when she played the young Peasant Turk Girl in "Season of the Witch" with Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman, which landed in theaters January 7, 2011, "Creature" which opened on September 9, 2011, and then as one of the leads in the horror film "Bastard" with After Dark Films and Fox Home Entertainment which opened October 16, 2015, and "A Dark Foe" with Graham Greene and Selma Blair.

Rebekah is also heavily involved with reaching out to the homeless and has done work with the Covenant House in Los Angeles and goBE.

About Los Angeles

Los Angeles (2021) - IMDb

She packs five angels in a shoe shine kit and takes a one-way trip to Tampa, Florida, where she is picked up by Cash, an escaped convict. The two hit the road with the FBI on their tail. At different cities along the way, Jojo opens her shine kit, and the angels perform. Will Cash get to freedom? Will Jojo save the Baby Jesus? God only knows.

In this episode of the podcast Joe provides you with an extra special "rewind" edition of the podcast. Instead of providing a "Best of" episode or replaying an older episode again, we bring you a previous episode of a different podcast, The Art of Conversation

Joe was a guest on this podcast back in March of 2019. Joe and former DTALKS guest Art Eddy discussed Joe's speaking engagement at Dad 2.0, the origins of The DTALKS Podcast, and a few unique topics just for this podcast. Take a listen as we rewind the clock back to 2019!

About this episode of The Art of Conversation

Back in late 2014 when Joe’s daughter was set to be born, he looked everywhere for a community of dads to join; a place to get advice on what to expect, to share triumphs and failures, and to build a rapport with fellow dads as they go through this parenting journey. However, he quickly learned while there were excellent resources for mothers and parents in general, there were very few resources for fathers, so he had to do the best he could with what he had available. About a year and a half passed and a good friend of his, who was expecting his first kid, asked Joe for some of the same resources and community questions he had encountered earlier. This made Joe realize there really was a need and want for some type of resource for dads.

His good friend and fellow dad, Galan Aldaco, had previous experience with running a podcast, so Joe asked him to help me get started putting together a parenting podcast. He not only brought in John Laird to help co-host, but also came up with the name “DTALKS” which stands for “Dads Talk About Life, Kids and Stuff”. The idea behind the name is that the listener is hopefully able to “detox” from some of their parenting frustrations by listening to “DTALKS”. Although John and Galan have since stepped away as Co-Hosts (Galan is still on as a producer for the show), they helped Joe structure the show and allow it to be the success it is today.

While the show started out as a resource-only type of show, providing advice to typical parenting questions such as teething and sleep issues, it quickly evolved into bringing other guest dads on the show to share their parenting journey and what lessons they have learned along the way.  Joe has been able to bring on guests such as WFAA Sportscaster Dale Hansen, Olympian and American Ninja Warrior contestant Jonathan Horton, and FWISD School Board member Jacinto Ramos Jr. among others as he made this transformation. Now that he is running the show solo, Joe has evolved the format again into a podcast that interviews people across the spectrum of life to draw lessons out of their experiences that we can teach our children.
