Lexi and Jo

The first sibling on our show arrives as we welcome Joanna’s sister, Lexi Leban. The show is about how Lexi graduated from Barnhard more than 30 years ago and what New York was like in the 1980s vs today. She lives and works in California, and relates the stories of being younger in the city and what has changed in the city today. Lexi is the executive director of the Jewish Film Institute in San Francisco, and recently took part in the launch of the Gilda Radner documentary. A longtime member of the Bay Area film community, Lexi has more than 20 years experience in all aspects of film, from production to distribution to exhibition. She also is a real Broadway fan, and talks about plays and musicals.

We find out all of this and more in this exclusive podcast recorded live at The Lambs. Our theme song is by Big Ed Cody of the Whiskey Wranglers.
