We all know the stories of how creative people get into the business of creating for a living, but how did they start using their imaginations in the first place?

On today's show we talk to Thu Tran. Thu is an artist and entertainer based in New York City. Growing up in Cleveland, she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Glass from the Cleveland Institute of Art. Since then, she's been a frequent collaborator with mash-up musician Girl Talk, and in 2009, she created the show Food Party for IFC, which ran for two seasons. Part cooking show and part puppet show, Food Party was surreal and wonderful. A few weeks ago, Thu stopped by the Manhattan Wrestling Team apartment for a fun and weird chat about creativity and fine art!
