We had the good fortune of connecting with Kat Lively and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kat, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I created ‘The Calling Old Hollywood Podcast’ in December 2019 in efforts to contribute to the preservation of Film, Television, and Music history. This means Actors, Actresses, Comedians, Musicians and other incredible people from the 1930’s – 1980’s who were so uniquely innovative and brilliant in their crafts and talent. It has evolved into a Youtube Channel where I have interviewed Natasha Wagner (daughter of Natalie Wood), Bruce Vilanch (Comedian/Writer), Danny Hutton (Founding member of ‘Three Dog Night’), Tyrone Power Jr. (Son of Actor Tyrone Power), Marcus Winslow (Cousin to James Dean), Dan Rice (Owner of 66-to-Cali and Route 66 Historian), and so many others. Just recently I’ve begun receiving opportunities to interview classic stars in person at Film Festivals, this includes the upcoming Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention in Maryland, where I’ll be interviewing Jerry Mathers and Tony Dow from ‘Leave It To Beaver’, as well as Actress Mary Badham from ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ later this month in front of a live audience. Aside from the podcast interviews and film festival interviews, I also feature historic locations on my Youtube Channel. This includes classic filming locations, former homes of classic stars, and much more.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Funny you mention, I somewhere nearly always land the role of ‘unofficial tour guide’ when friends and family come to town.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
A few wonderful people in my life whom I can’t thank express gratitude enough to is : Adeline, my Dad, Danielle Walters, Kaylei, Deanna & Josh, Susie & Kirk Cesnik, Dan Rice, Karie Bible, and Tony E. Black.
