Peter Richardson - filmmaker How To Die In Oregon, premiering on HBO on May 26.  This moving film explores Oregon's historic and controversial 1994 Death with Dignity Act as it tells the intimate stories of patients and their famiiles as they struggle with their decision to end their lives by ingesting a lethal overdose. How To Die In Oregon is the Winner of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival U.S. Documentary Grand Jury Award.

Boaz Frankel - The man of many interests and projects.  Not only is he the founder of the only Kazoo museum on the West Coast, but most notably, Boaz took an Un-Road Trip in which he zig-zagged across North America using every mode of transportation except a gas-powered car. The trip attracted the attention of large media outlets (ie NBC's Today Show) and is now a 10-episode television series on Halogen TV.

Musical guest Klezmocracy - This Afro-Hebrew ensemble is a freewheeling ensemble that leaves few musical stones unturned. They blend the traditional eastern European klezmer music with jazz, latin and rock musical sensibilities.
