Welcome to the department!
Hosted by the multi-talented Naomi Snieckus, Firecracker Department is a sit-down with the brightest minds and most charismatic women in entertainment, representing the full spectrum of ‘the biz’ But despite their showbiz superpowers, none can resist the targeted charm of their host. With each interview, Naomi and her guest kick off their shoes, pour a glass of wine and begin a very informal conversation, that is real and often intensely-personal. It’s funny, frank talk about success, life in the public eye, the victories, embarrassments and vagaries of fame.
Hey Firecrackers! This episode I got to speak with the incredible Jean Yoon! Right now you might know her from Kim’s Convenience, but she is an artist on so many different levels; she has been a creator, a producer, a writer, a poet – she’s done it all! I remember watching her from shows like The Yoko Ono Project way back when I was in theatre school, and being just astounded with her commitment to the character. She really throws herself into character, both feet in, and she’s bringing that into the film and television world with Kim’s Convenience. I love that after years of admiring her work I’m sitting down and talking with her about her life and her career and she is so fascinating. I think you’ll get really jazzed from this conversation. We talked for so long that I even had to take a pee break; but we did it, we came back and I’m excited to now share our chat with you. Enjoy Firecrackers!
