EPISODE 182: CHUCK SLOAN (REDUX – PART 1)

In Episode 182, Trev sounds off about climate deniers (for just a minute – sorry about that), AJ shares exactly how money will no longer stop him (and it kind of ties in nicely with the climate thing), and the two of them chat about AEA’s (Actor’s Equity Association) proposal to abolish the 99-seat theatre plan in Los Angeles.

Then AJ sits down for Part 1 of our long ago chat with performer tax specialist Chuck Sloan. From demystifying the L.A. business license, to what exactly constitutes cash money income (you may be surprised), to the least you’ll need to have to prove your validity in the event of an audit (you’ll definitely be surprised), this is priceless business information for any creative. Total running time: 58:52.
