Anthony De Angelis

This month we welcome NYC-based composer, music director, pianist, orchestrator, and podcaster Anthony De Angelis! We talked about what jobs we'd have in an alternate universe, what Anthony likes about doing what he does, and about juggling the silly and serious aspects of his career and personality. We also collaborated on a story for Sean's other podcast Not Movies and the latest episode of that show, Who Stole Henry Winkler provides some fun (but absolutely not necessary) backstory for one of the pieces we present here.
