Welcome to the first episode of this podcast! Today’s guest is Rusty Schwimmer. She is a highly successful and well-known TV and film actor, and one of my good friends. We chatted 3 days after what would have been her mother’s 85th birthday about Sidney Poitier, her mother’s self-taught love of painting, and how sometimes saying “My perfect children” doesn’t always help the child.
