Actor Noel Olken

Noel Olken has hitchhiked the roads of America, hung out on the streets of Paris, and driven strange people around Chicago. During that time, he's produced movies, created music, and mounted a one-man stage play. It's a life filled with determined and restless creative energy, all while the presence of a gambling-addicted father looms close by. Honest, introspective, and filled with common threads, Kurt and Noel discuss his life's creative journey and the balance of optimism and cynicism.
