Toy Story (1996) w/ Amber Aviles

Stand up comedian and voice actor, Amber Aviles drops by to talk about how she almost chose Randy Newman’s “You’ve Always Got a Friend in Me” as the first dance song for her wedding, and how Randy Newman has a special place in her heart as a Los Angeles Dodgers fan with his iconic song “I Love LA” soundtracking every Dodgers home win. We also discuss songs that “soundtrack” different baseball stadiums, the magic of The Minnesota State Fair, and positive encounters we’ve had with stand up comedians (Mary Mack, Iliza Shlesinger) and voice actors (Rob Paulsen, Nancy Cartwright and more).

Ryan has a degree in Film Studies, and he’s a musician. So, Soundtrack Your Life is the perfect intersection of his two main passions. Plus, he’s an avid music fan—hunting down rare songs from his favorite bands has familiarized him with many obscure soundtracks over the years. It's been so gratifying for him to hear fellow film and music enthusiasts share their stories of why they love soundtracks!
