Our fearless "So...Now What?" theme song composer, Monsieur Alex Bechtel, drops by to talk about being the busiest man in Philadelphia, writing music for Shakespeare's words, how writing and acting feed into each other, and how he "lied up" his way into sound designing. We also talk about music being in his blood, his musical theater obsessions, how he ended up staying in Philly, and how he is learning to not take things so personally. And, of course, his love for Peter Gabriel. Rate and review us on iTunes and Stitcher so you can help us help you enjoy the hour you spend with us each week!
