“A musical is not finished until it’s produced in a theatre for a paying audience.”

In today's episode, we're chatting with podcast editor and creator of the MMMA theme song, Maiga Vidal!

Maiga is creating a musical and has streamed the process of creating it on Twitch, from the very kernel of the first idea, to the various contests she's entered, and even tests out her songs, lyrics, and story on her viewers to see if they land.

She also explains how she pitched her favorite podcast to become their paid editor and breaks down why she wanted to be paid per minute of the pod vs. an hourly rate. We also speak about the importance of tutors and accountability partners and needing the pressure of deadlines to get sh*t done.

Throughout this interview, Maiga routinely hyped me up, and I hope I did the same for her! We had a giggle fest and an incredible time talking over art, what it's like moving away from the corporate world, having creative siblings, and so much more. I hope you enjoy hearing from her as much as I did!
