After climbing a thousand stairs we were warmly welcomed by Boaz & Brooke in their spacious Amsterdam apartment in De Pijp. Boaz & Brooke definitely keep themselves busy; Different Every Day calendars, Sad Animal Fact books, Pedal Powered Talk shows, many successful side projects and still finding time to make friends with neighbouring crows, be-friend Ashton Kutcher on social media and interview George Clooney…
But how? How to find time? How to recycle ideas that get killed? How not to be scared to share? Most importantly, how to make your passion project your full-time job?
We dive deep with Boaz & Brooke and we get excited about making ideas happen!
Alavro Sotomayor is a special guest on this podcast. We got to know him as creator of The Kennedys, as the Creative Director of Corona and as an absolutely amazing human being. Now, we sit with him in his studio shed (which is in the back garden of W+K) and discuss art, his latest exhibition and future plans.
Alvaro is the reason behind this podcast. The moment I heard him ask “what do you love” instead of ‘what do you do’ was the moment SideCast was born. If you hear a sound of keys, you will soon see him smiling somewhere round the corner…
But let’s talk about the ship of fools…

To kick things off, we drafted in our partner in crime from The Kennedys, Anna Kiosse. The Art Director currently works at Wieden & Kennedy Amsterdam and has been working on some really exciting stuff!
Anna’s home in the center of Amsterdam was the perfect setting to chat. Not to mention the opportunity to hang out with her cheeky French bulldog crossed with a pug, Yoda.
The sun was out, the mood was right and now we invite you to listen to our conversation with Anna about her latest projects, ‘The Mayhem Market’ and ‘The Swearing’ books, her love for drawing animals and finding time to do the things she loves.
We finally are launching the SideCast a podcast about passion projects! Yes! The time has come to share all the interviews we collected. Before we do that though, we thought it would be nice to introduce you to the SideCast itself. How? Where and When? Listen to this episode and emerge yourselves.
