464 - Anthony Green
Anthony Green has used his life to travel down many creative roads and in every incantation you will find the same burning spirit waiting underneath to be unleashed. While luck and raw talent have played a pivotal role in his success, there is no denying that Anthony has a connection with every aspect defining the human experience from the most vulnerable to the most carnal. By publicly surrendering to these raw emotions, people around the world have transcended language barriers and jumped over literal barriers to share just one moment in proximity to the emotions Anthony personifies on stage that also drive them. All these experiences come at different costs that Anthony welcomes from balancing family time and life on the road to overcoming addiction and developing a whole new playbook on coping. Nothing is held back as Mark and Anthony leave it all on stage for everyone to hear in this emotional interview into the mind and heart of a perfect hollywood height little god.
