This episode was recorded on the patio in front of a Baskin Robins in Sahuarita, Arizona! There is some background noise that we apologize for. However the message and the inspiration that Marisa gives throughout the session is important so we hope you won’t mind the noise. This interview goes from one subject to another to another like a roller coaster. From talking about life in the theater, to growing up Latina to sushi, you never know what’s coming next! It’s fun, informative and thought provoking all at once. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
