Cheryl Strayed
Prior to writing Wild, arguably the most successful memoir in a decade, Cheryl Strayed was a prolific and extremely well-respected novelist and teacher. Now, with Oprah and Reese Witherspoon on speed dial and a film version of Wild written by Nick Hornby and directed by Jean-Marc Vallee, she's officially a juggernaut.

Justin Simien
Justin Simien is the director of Dear White People, the winner of the Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent at Sundance. The film was inspired by his experience attending a predominantly white university and has been called "tight, funny, smart and insightful" by the Chicago Sun-Times.

Kurt Braunohler
An extremely funny standup, Kurt often wears a tie when performing his act, which we appreciate. He's appeared on IFC, Comedy Central, FOX's Bob's Burgers and many other swanky places, and he's currently developing a pilot for Comedy Central called Gettin' Some Strange.

Mike Sacks
If you're a lover of humor and itching to find out how it works, author Mike Sacks is your man. In his two books on humor writing, he's interviewed the likes of Amy Poehler, Mel Brooks, and George Saunders. His latest book is Poking a Dead Frog: Conversations with Today's Top Comedy Writers.

Liz Vice
Liz Vice's latest album There's a Light was recorded entirely live to analog tape in a nod to old school gospel, R&B and soul records of the 60's and 70's, and the result is a timeless sound with enough of a modern groove to keep it classically current.
