  An interview show hosted by Emily Flake and Kat Burdick, featuring some of your favorite people talking about their least favorite dreams.

She makes her primary home in Brooklyn but is in Williamsport as much as possible.
Jean Grae, in her own words: “I make things. I have unlimited interests and a vast amount of varied skills. I’m a multipotentialite. At this age, I’ve learned that the most important thing is – being happy. Building relationships and connections. Building skill sets I love. Spending time with people I love and spending even more time.. doing things I love. Exclusively. That’s it. Are you into THINGS? A lot of my concentration will be design, fabrics, textiles, but I can’t say that there won’t be puppets. or learning the theramin. Or going to law school. Or traveling the world solo, or with friends. Or skin care and hair care. Or powerlifting. Or running for mayor. Or food. There’s more on the list and I can’t limit myself, so generally…. a lifestyle? I’m non binary and queer. My pronouns are she/her/The Monarchy/Mx. Life is short. Have a good fucking time. Thanks for being here!”
