Today's episode features Jennifer Marshall who plays the character Susan Hargrove (Max's Mom) in the huge Netflix TV show, "Stranger Things". We talk about all kinds of interesting topics within the world of acting and television. This was a lot of fun. Enjoy!
Born in Denver, Colorado, Jennifer Marshall is the eldest of three children. She grew up in Arvada, Colorado, a suburb of Denver, and attended Pomona High School before a death in the family prompted the family to move to Carbondale, Colorado. This small ski town nestled in the Roaring Fork Valley between Aspen and Glenwood Springs was her home for the next three years and living there solidified her decision to join the military after high school.
In high school, she played basketball for the Roaring Fork Lady Rams, was a Varsity cheerleader, a member of the Speech and Drama team for a short time (before her coach would not allow her to participate and play basketball during the same season), editor of the high school newspaper, part of the yearbook staff, state Vice President of HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America), sang in show choir and honor choir, and was a frequent face in the annual school musical.
One month after graduating high school, Jennifer joined the United States Navy and was shipped off to boot camp in Great Lakes, Illinois. She spent nearly five years in the Navy and was stationed on San Nicolas Island, the most remote of the California Channel Islands, and later, on the USS Roosevelt, a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier home ported in Norfolk, Virginia. She was honorably discharged from the Navy as a Petty Officer Second Class. While in the military, she worked as an aircraft handler, in aviation supply, and was a member of the Ships Security Defense Force Team as well as the Repair Locker Fire Team. She earned a Navy/Marine Corps Achievement Medal, among other awards. She has spoken positively about her life in the military and has mentioned returning to military reserve service in the future.
Jennifer graduated Magna Cum Laude from Virginia Wesleyan College with a double major in International Politics and Spanish and a minor in History. As of 2013, Jennifer is seeking her graduate degree through American Military University.
As of 2013, Jennifer lives and works as an actress in sunny and beautiful Los Angeles, California.

Born on the 22nd of January 1991 Mugzy had to fight through his adolescent years. Struggling with deep internal stress, he found inspiration in Eminem after his first encounter with Hip-Hop when he heard the song 'The Way I Am'. Mugzy felt that he could strongly relate to the lyrics in Eminem's songs & began to change his image to be a true representative of the Hip-Hop culture.
As he developed his style and studied Hip-Hop, he found further inspiration from the legends: 2 Pac, Biggie, 50 Cent, DMX, & searched further into the roots of Hip-Hop to re-discover artists like Public Enemy, NWA & Nas.
Drawing inspiration from the masters of Hip-Hop & armed with the knowledge earned through years of hardship, Mugzy's rap speaks of truth. A raw truth. A truth that will resound with teenagers that have had to endure self doubt & lack of confidence.
Mugzy emerged from the shadow through Hip-Hop & found a way to express himself through his music by embracing the culture.
Mugzy's style is a blend of grit, raw lyrics, aggression and abrasiveness. Mugzy will tell it how it is.
Based north of Sydney, Mugzy will not shy away from any challenge to perform on any stage.
There are a lot of performers in the scene that prefer to stay in closed groups, but Mugzy is open to collaboration with all artists that are fighting for their dream & are willing to have a go in a spirit of mutual respect.
You can expect Mugzy to continue representing the Hip-Hop Culture, never backing away from any challenge well into the future.
