On The Come Up, host Matt Rodin sits with creative people to find out where they’re at, today, in the journey of becoming who they are. What unfolds are often inspiring, transcendental, and candid conversations about the reality of being a growing artist.

He’s a queer maker of music, media, characters, and campfires. As an actor, Matt recently starred in Hedwig and the Angry Inch at Milwaukee Rep, and the upcoming musical film BEAU. In 2020, he released his first live solo album, Matt Rodin: Live at Home.
