One of my favorite interviews of all time is a segment we did with actor Pepe Serna. The interview took place outside his house on Balboa Island. Pepe talks about his bout with cancer, his one man play and provides words of inspiration. Pepe’s latest project is Aguruphobia where he portrays Guru Nanak. When Internet Guru Nanak (Pepe Serna) meets his biggest fan agoraphobic Crystal Luna (Jade Puga), the two discover that searching for enlightenment can be dangerous. Here is the link to the movie’s trailer. http://youtu.be/VG0lUGH2gKg
