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 the Beginnings podcast, writer and performer Andy Beckerman asks well-known and up-and-coming comedians, musicians, writers and artists about their earliest creative acts and about other formative childhood experiences.

On today's show, I talk to Cassie Ramone of The Vivian Girls and The Babies. Raised in Ridgewood, NJ, Cassie grew up in the music scene that gave birth to bands like Real Estate and Titus Andronicus. Cassie and Katy Goodman formed The Vivian Girls in 2007, and after putting out three fantastic albums recently called it quits. However, Cassie continues to make music on her own and also in the band The Babies with Woods bassist Kevin Morby. Check out their two albums, both of which are great.
