Growing up in Houston, Texas, Tony Trius has been a huge admirer of Madonna's work for over three decades.
His desire to compare notes with other Madonna fans led to conversations with Stefan, which resulted in the creation of MLVC: the Madonna podcast. And, as a Co-host and Co-Producer, he now gets his chance to communicate with a fervent community of Madonna fans every week!
Now in the podcast's 3rd season, Tony continues to explore Madonna's enduring legacy through interviews with collaborators, fans and those inspired by her body of work.
Tony has lived in New York City for the past 21 years working in the creative field in addition to his latest venture, Audio Production.
Stefan Mreczko is an artist who has called NYC home for over 20 years.
He has worked in television, music video, theater and global advertising firms, and is an internationally-published freelance photographer focusing on men’s fashion and portraiture. An on-going personal photography project of his titled “Museum Napping,” inspired by a performance art piece by actress Tilda Swinton, depicts Stefan taking naps in museums around the world.
A long-time Madonna fan, Stefan is one half of the duo who produces and co-hosts MLVC: the Madonna podcast. Together with his co-host Tony, he has been bringing conversations about Madonna and interviews with people who have worked with her or been a part of her iconic career, since April of 2019.
Not only did Stefan get to dance onstage with Madonna as an ‘Unapologetic Bitch’ during the Rebel Heart Tour, he also got to sit down with Madonna and share a beer with her and his friend Sean during the Madame X tour.
In his spare time, Stefan is an avid gym goer and has begun acquiring a brand new skill: producing music. His first-ever single, “Mistress Dita,” paying homage to Madonna’s persona from her Erotica album, was released in December 2020. His latest single, "The Winds of March," is now available on Apple, Amazon and Spotify.
