Episode 19

Actor Scott Takeda (Gone Girl, Dallas Buyers Club, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot) often plays the smart guy in charge with a heart. But he’s also a photographer, director, and above all else - a storyteller. Find out what stories are most important to him, and what he learned from his visit to Japan as a self-described “banana.” They also discuss Denver’s latest composting efforts to go green, his love for cycling and solar panels, and the pros and cons of new technology on human interaction.


  1. Storytelling is essential to humanity. It’s an innate desire within all of us that brings us together.

  2. If you're looking for some great career opportunities, maybe pick up biking.

  3. A culture of respect is good for a country in every way.
