Reflections On the First Season

It’s no secret that I hope to do a Season 2 of my “pet project” Awkward Money Chat. Still, I need to take a moment and reflect on just how awesome doing the first season was. Filming/editing took place over nearly 4 months (we filmed the first set of four on 2/28/2014 with the final shoot happening on 6/12/14!) and it couldn’t have happened without our awesome guests willing to come on and be a part of the show. Talking about your personal finances is never easy and I appreciate your willingness to open up.

I’m glad I managed to snag more than a few photos to help me remember this special time in my life. I also love how Murray is in a lot of these photos. That’s just how he was, always in the lap of whoever came by to visit.

Many thanks to: Kaylee King, Jessica Laurain, Matt Hobbs, Kathrine Magruder, James Johns, Kyle Bumpus, Paula Pant, Octavia Warren, Chris Gilmore, Pat Davis, LaTisha Styles and Robin Thornett. You guys ROCK :)

We also had a spectacular crew headed by my brother, Kevyn. Without whom the series wouldn’t have been possible.

You can catch up on all the episodes here. I can’t comment on when exactly we’ll get around to season 2, so for now I’ll just say…Until NEXT TIME!

    So cool seeing behind the scenes! Next time I’m in the area I’m going to crash one of these shootings ;)

    You know I love awkward money chat! Very rarely but occasionally I go to Atlanta on business. If I ever go again, I’m going to try to get on it. This will take a miracle, because (1) the likelihood of going is low (2) would need to coordinate with you and all your lovely support techies! Oh well, if it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be! Oh, wait! That would mean I need to out myself!!! Oh well. It would definitely be a sign then. Lovely Murray in the shots… sniff!

      If you are ever in the Atlanta area I am sure we can work something out :) Would love to have you. Not sure when season 2 will start shooting, but probably toward the end of 2014. :)
