This week we open the doors of the chateau to the incredibly talented Rivkah Reyes, Rivkah came into the spotlight as the bad ass Katie in School of Rock alongside Jack Black but that is just a small part of this incredibly strong and powerful person.

Rivkah is an actor, a comedian, a musician and very recently became a podcaster also. We sit down with Riv and talk all about their life before and after School of Rock, we discuss their time with Second City in Chicago, their music and of course their new podcast 'Where Are We Now' and so much more!

This is a beautiful conversation with a beautiful person with so many tangents and twists and turns including British accents, the London gherkin and much more!

Join Tom and David Rabe as they chat with multi award winning photographer Peter Alessandria. An award winner yes, but things were quite different for Peter in the past.

Peter has a new book out that explains his journey, however he shares enough tid-bits with Tom and David to show you, the listener that extraordinary things can happen when you believe in yourself.
