Reaches Its First Year..


(Joshua Gilmore- Staff Writer)

It started one year ago today, this site was launched and took the concept of Nowhere California to a whole new level.

Nowhere California started in 2011 and it was just another conversation between two friends, but these conversation started taking place in front of a microphone and unleashed on the internet. It was as simple as that, but as Nowhere California evolved, the team grew and new accomplishments were reach.

The episodes started to grow and the team ventured out of the Nowhere city limits, as they dove into the world of conventions and conducting interviews. It was with each accomplishment, the Nowhere California family stuck to their ideals of what they wanted to produce and not to become just another podcast.

It was that mindset that grew into this website and, as we mark our first year on the net, we want to simply say THANK YOU.

Thank you for following the journey of Nowhere California.

Thank you for listening to the original podcast and all of the other podcast that have sprung from this little idea.

Thank you for checking out this site

And thank you for continuing this adventure with us.


From Stage To Screen..

In the past, Nowhere California has had the opportunity to talk with some insanely talented people and this streak has continued with this our conversation with Chantel Riley.

Chantel can be seen currently on Broadway as Nala in “The Lion King”, a role she had the opportunity to play in a production based in Germany.

Also, the world can now see Chantel’s performance as Quincella in the movie “RACE”. “RACE” delves into Jesse Owens’ journey to the 1936 Olympic Games, these games took place in Berlin and we relive Owens history making face off against the handpicked athletes of Adolf Hitler. In the events leading to the Olympics, we learn about Jesse’s life and loves, this is where Quincella enters the picture. Quincella was a well-off admirer of Owens and pursued the athlete like an Olympic medal.


As in any role, there is a unique road to the character and the same goes with the career of any performer. It was a pleasure to talk with Chantel and you can CLICK HERE To Listen To Our Conversation Now.

During this conversation, Chantel mentions an animated telling of her career and here is the first episode of that series for you viewing pleasure..
