In this installment of "Kahnversations," we interview Jeff Meacham. Jeff was born in Connecticut but raised on the mean streets/beaches of Sarasota, Florida. After High School he moved to New York and received a BFA in Acting from SUNY Purchase. While in NYC he met his beautiful wife Christy Meyers, got married in 2008, had their son Jack in 2012 and now live happily ever after in a duplex south of Olympic. Currently Jeff plays Josh on the ABC comedy BLACK-ISH, and Principal Bradford on Nickelodeon's THE THUNDERMANS. He's also still proud to be recognized as the ShaveEveryWhere guy from the 2006 Phillips Norelco Bodygroom viral campaign. If you're into podcasts, check out The OpenSky Fitness Podcast he hosts with Rob Dionne. You can find it on iTunes. What else? He loves the Red Sox, fishing with his old man, tennis, and Netflix.

So many inspiring podcasts out there allow us to hear all about how well-established stars got to where they are today. But those actors are so faaaaaaar away from where so many of us are today! Wouldn’t it be great to hear from the guy who just booked his first pilot? Or the kid finally doing a studio pic after a bunch of low budget indies? Or the woman who’s been a series regular a few times but is only now becoming a name? What about the guy who’s been on a show for years and you know his face but what’shisnameagain? Or that actress who is now a freakin’ showrunner???? How’d THEY do it, right? How did they transition from relative obscurity, bartending and bottle service, to buying that house in the hills?
We’re producing “Kahnversations,” a podcast that provides access to THOSE people -- your immediate predecessors -- so that you can learn from them while their battle scars are still fresh.
In “Kahnversations,” our own Ryan Bailey interviews some of Lesly Kahn & Company’s working actors, directors, and writers in order to learn how they got started in Hollywood, the challenges and hurdles they faced, and how they overcame the odds. (They also dish out some crazy stories!) Listen in and enjoy as these entertainers speak candidly about their paths, processes, and experiences. You might even hear a bit about how Lesly and the Kahnstitute have influenced and shaped their careers.
