Episode 35: Sonja Mereu

8Aug

Hosts Maggi Mayfield and David Earl Waterman were delighted to sit down with the director of the LA Diversity Film Festival, Sonja Mereu. Sonja grew up bicoastally, with her mom in NYC and her dad in LA. She shares about how she was a "bad kid" and how she overcame that, attended college and started making films.

She has quite a special relationship with her very Italian father, who is on the board of directors of the LA Diversity Film Festival. Sonja's music selections were so deep and empathetic, we learn quickly her secret to life and how intensely she loves others. Sonja's boyfriend was also in studio enjoying the show live and she shared the story of how the met on set in Arizona and their unusual first date when they returned home to Los Angeles.

The gang takes a story break to play Band Or Bar, taking place in Cambridge, England. Try and guess along with Sonja and Maggi before clicking on each!

We learn all about Sonja's Guilty Pleasures before she takes us to her first concert.
