Cut & Paste: Theater couple professes more delight than drama in managing marriage and kids
This has been a super-crazy week for St. Louis theater professional and mom Christina Rios. One of her three younger children started kindergarten. Her teenager entered her junior year of high school. And her theater company R-S Theatrics geared up to open its largest-ever production: “In the Heights.” In our latest Cut & Paste podcast , we talk with Rios and her husband, Mark Kelley — who’s an actor with a day job at Washington University — about how they make it all work. They come from very different backgrounds. She was a child with Mexican roots who grew in a poor St. Louis family. He came from a middle-class west county home. But it was the very different paths they took as young adults that almost derailed their early relationship. Look for new Cut & Paste (#cutpastestl) podcasts every few weeks on our website.

Cut & Paste: A former drama kid pays tribute to his hunter-father with theater and taxidermy
Who among us hasn’t grappled with building a relationship with our parents? Matthew Kerns, director of the St. Lou Fringe festival of performing arts, struggled to bond with a father who was very different from him. Kerns was a gay theater kid; his dad was a stereotypically “manly” man who drove a truck and hunted deer.
Cut & Paste: The Knuckles of St. Louis come out swinging with mashup of rap, pop and more
Don’t put Rockwell Knuckles and Aloha Micheaux in a box. He’s known as a rapper and she’s more of a pop singer, who made it to the finals in “American Idol” in 2005. But the St. Louis performers shun labels in their collaboration known as The Knuckles. In our latest Cut & Paste podcast , we talk with the musical collaborators with 200 songs and one EP under their belts, focusing on a wave of recent attention they've received and what they'll do next.

Cut & Paste: Nika Marble performs improv on the piano, at the easel and behind the bar
Nika Marble’s artistic toolbox holds an eclectic mix: A shot of tonic, a staccato note and a sharp pair of scissors. Each tool is in service of one of her artistic endeavors: music, mixology and collage making. But as she dons one hat after another, how does Marble define herself? In this reboot of our Cut & Paste podcast , we talk with Marble about an identity crisis that plagues many creative people. “Am I am I an artist who waits tables? Or am I a waiter who occasionally makes art?” Marble said. “This is a thing that has worried myself and a lot of my friends in their lives.”

But seriously, we want to know what you want to hear in Cut & Paste, our arts and culture podcast . Not necessarily “who,” but what kinds of conversations and experiences do you want to be in on?
