Carrie Brownstein is quite the talent.

Not only is she half of the incredible IFC sketch series “Portlandia,” but she’s a pretty kick-ass musician to boot. Sleater-Kinney is an essential rock n’ roll band, and Brownstein is proving to be one to watch on screen as well as on stage. After breaking out with Fred Armisen, playing outrageous and diverse characters in their landmark comedy series, Brownstein has landed challenging parts in Amazon’s “Transparent,” FX’s “Archer” and in the upcoming Oscar contender, “Carol.” 

Brownstein is the featured guest this week on “Off Camera with Sam Jones,” the DirecTV series on the Audience Network. In the two clips here, she discusses what art means to her and how it might affect others. Catch the full discussion in the episode airing Monday, November 2 on DirecTV Channel 239.
