"We're still very much on our own; the closest we come is the festival circuit... not regulated, not unified, and boy do they vary. Everybody has a different idea...

Can't we just...?'"
Person of all the trades, Rebecca Mm Davis may be most recognized as co-producer of What The Funk Fest (winner of Favorite Festival for Silver Tusk Awards 2023) in Seattle, and emcee for multiple shows in the area. Also an actress, show producer, notary public(!), and wedding officient, Rebecca shares with Viktor some tales from all these fields and more, including or favorite broads, reclaiming eras, hosting tips, and more!
