ONE BROKE ACTRESS Podcast | The New Normal Miniseries – Financial Health with Miata Edoga




Financially, mentally, physically or otherwise…most actors are at least a little broke. Host/actress Sam Valentine brings you advice, tips, and real stories (of success AND failure) from people in and around the acting industry right now. So you feel a little more “whole” and a little less alone in Hollywood.

From auditions and day to day life of working actors to getting agents/managers, we cover it all. Tune in for bonus chats with experts and Sam + her producer Helenna Santos.

Miata is the queen of creative’s money happiness! She was on the podcast way back in season 3 (check it here!) and today we’re going to talk actor-finances post-pandemic! I ask…
In 2021 what are some realities you see creatives bumping up against?
Are there some things, we can do to get our finances under control after the last year?
What can we do to better prepare for this kind of random occurrence in the future?
Covid changed the landscape of 1099-gig workers, it changed a lot of the creative world and brought us into the light (maybe showed the cracks in the capitalist foundation) do you think there will be some changes for the better?
