May 18, 2017: Ibby/Rajah Samaroo/Mary Petiet/BlaccGoose

Filmmaker Rajah Samaroo
18-year-old singer-songwriter Ibby opens the show with some great acoustic tunes. She recently released her second album, "Cross Your Heart," a reflection of her own experiences and travels. We talk about how she's evolved as an artist since releasing her debut album at 15, as well as her plans now that she's graduated high school.

Filmmaker Rajah Samaroo is next, and it's a reunion of sorts, as he and Max worked together on the movie "The Joneses" nearly 10 years ago. Rajah has a new project in the works, "Pseudo Love," and he outlines the story behind it, and how he's been able to work full-time as a filmmaker.

Author, journalist, and radio host Mary Petiet has a great story to share in her book, "Minerva's Owls." In it, she helps readers achieve a spiritual balance, a sometimes daunting task in this day and age. We talk about how social media has served to both connect us with the world, and isolate us from the rest of the world. She also shares the origin of her podcast Kitchen Table Mystic, where she talks to inspiring women.

Last but not least is Cincinnati-based hip-hop artist BlaccGoose. He's been making and recording music for the last five years, but he's been crafting his tunes from a much younger age. He's got a lot to say about the talent of Cincinnati and how it doesn't get the attention it deserves. His fiance is also a musician, and the two collaborate often.
