Gaelynn Lea co-hosts, Hash It Out With Jane

When I recorded this final episode of Hash It Out With Jane, I didn’t realize it would be my last episode because I didn’t foresee the abundance of opportunities that were coming my way. However, Gaelynn is the perfect co-host to hash it out with as I transition into other areas of criptastic media making.

Unless you live in a cave with zero media access, you have probably heard of the lovely and talented Gaelynn Lea. She is the 2016 winnerof NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest! Fortunately for us, she was gracious enough to make the time to discuss with me, the realities of being a successful entertainer with a physical disability.

Embracing new opportunities

Dear fans of Hash It Out With Jane,

You may have noticed that over the past year, new episodes of this fun, naughty, and educational podcast have been few and far between. Lack of edgy topics to discuss and groovy people to interview are not to blame. I simply don’t have the time anymore.

Through this podcast I have joyfully been promoting and supporting artists, educators, entrepreneurs, musicians, and other movers and shakers out there with and without disabilities, for the past four years. It has been a hugely rewarding labor of love.

Now, it’s time for me to move on. I am retiring from podcasting. This is not something to be sad about. The reason I don’t have time to podcast anymore is because of the abundance of exciting opportunities becoming available to me!

One of the reasons I started Hash It Out With Jane is because I believe people with disabilities need to create our own quality media, in every form, because Hollywood just never seems to get it right…or get ‘us’ right, I should say. While I am not at liberty to spill the beans on all my new undertakings at this time, my work will continue to support inclusive media and challenge societal norms.

The final episode of Hash It Out With Jane will post on Monday, June 9th. My beautiful and talented co-host is….Gaelynn Lea Tressler, winner of NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest!

In closing, I want to give a big, wet, sloppy, heartfelt thank you to everyone who helped make this podcast a huge success. Go download all your favorite episodes now because I will not be renewing my Podomatic subscription, where they are hosted.

Love always,

Andrew Gurza co-hosts Hash It Out With Jane (NSFW)

Hey there folks! Your favorite podcast is back with a whole new look! Do not despair. This episode was my very first attempt at editing audio AND video by myself. Therefore, my skills can only improve. Right? Damn right! 

I almost didn't post this because I obviously didn't have the settings right on my recording software. However, it will be very fun to watch the progression of my mad podcasting skills!

On this episode, Andrew and I hash it out about the Oscars, sex, and pop culture!

The Sisters of Invention demand respect...and they get it!

Happy New Year and as always, thank you for being a fan of Hash It Out With Jane!

This podcast often features interesting guests who are shaking up these silly perceived societal norms that we have sadly gotten a little too comfortable with. Somewhere, somehow, it became 'normal' to treat all people with any type of disability or impairment like a child. 

The Sisters of Invention, as well as the rest of the population of adults with disabilities, are tired of this ignorance. With the support of their Manager and Tutti Arts, these Australian ladies are changing perceptions with their original music that they write themselves. 

We hope that you enjoy listening to our interview as much as we enjoyed putting it together. This is indeed "as real as it gets!" Click here to listen or simply scroll up or down to player.

This episode is dedicated to the most memorable activist for the rights of people with disabilities...Stella Young.
