A Production Company that's evolved over time.
Second Wind was established in April 2015 as a podcast collective, but has over time evolved to showcase videos and written pieces from the Chicago community as well. In 2019, Second Wind evolved again solely into a production company, aiming to help use it’s resources to bring new ideas to life. As a production company, Second Wind Productions strives to be inclusive in all of it’s self produced shows and series, and will seek out projects that tell different stories and empower diverse voices through all aspects of media.
Dan Schiffmacher is the Sole Proprietor of Second Wind Productions, and currently resides in Chicago, Illinois. He enjoys talking about Nintendo a little too much, had the ability to talk to animals, and works full time for a marketing company (Norton Norris). He is the Video Director/producer of the Improv Nerd Podcast, loves to be challenged (he learned wordpress to build this site) and comes to Chicago by way of Buffalo, NY.
