Giving Competitive Pole Dancing a "twirl"- with Renee!

March 31, 2021

This was an episode that came out of the blue. I was contacted through a website by Renee, who said she'd like to come on the show to talk about competitive pole dancing. So, naturally, knowing absolutely nothing about this, I said, "Of course!" (Which is how i got into college. And became a superh…

Interesting Occupations True Crime

Why can Sarah Alcorn of "Ivy League Murders" hunt down clues, while the Sherpa lives life without one?

Dec. 23, 2020

I got to speak to two amazing ladies this week, Rebels, and these interviews were so fascinating.! Today, I had the pleasure of speaking with Sarah Alcorn, a PI, who co-hosts this true crime podcast. The lady really knows a lot about crime, and about PI work. So be careful out there-she might be wo…

The Election's Over, but Vote for Middagh Goodwin, Anyway!

Dec. 4, 2020

Before we started our interview, my first words to Middagh were, "Okay, I'm jealous." To which he responded, "Of what?" Well, I won't name names, but he was in a picture standing next to an 80's rocker I've been trying to get on the show. I keep getting, "Their schedule is full." While he DOES know…

Class is In Session-with Scott Hopkins!

Nov. 11, 2020

True Story: Sherpa Mom worked in my elementary school for 30 years. Do you know what it's like to be 10 and your principal is knocking on your door? (Well, maybe YOU do, Mr- Authority- doesn't- scare- me.) Actually, it makes you realize at an early age that teachers are people, just like everyone e…

Amazing Women, Incredible Stories (Day 5): Meet Stacey Toy!

Oct. 16, 2020

Haha! I like how Stacey said that I gave her "the best introduction ever." But she's so worthy of a great intro. She's lead an interesting life with her own collection of lows and highs in her life. How many people get out of a life of pill addiction to become successful? (Ok, you can't count the …

The Sherpa Screening Room: Two Phone Calls! Opera! Farming! This Number is NOT in Service!

Sept. 23, 2020

Doing an episode about opera and living off the land is kind of like an episode on Mother Theresa and Carrot Top. Completely different, but, still, so much to learn. So why not do an interesting mix? Thank you to Rosario and Lionman for your time! By the way, Lionman's father, Neil Perry Gordon wa…

"Organize For Success" for 2020, with our guest, Kathy McEwan!

Jan. 1, 2020

Happy New Year, Rebels! Are you ready to get organized? That may seem like a big step for some, but Kathy's podcast makes it an easy, small step for everyone. ("That's one small step for people, one giant leap for organization!" Or something like that.) Kathy admittedly started on her organizing sk…

Is There a Midwife in the Chalet? Monica Wallace of "Women's Health Matters" knows what to Doula, and More!

Sept. 4, 2019

I'm not a doctor. I don't even play one on tv (Are you listening, "General Hospital" casting director?). But many of my guests I've had this season have provided a wealth of medical information, and Monica Wallace certainly delivered (See what I did there?). Monica has a treasure trove of knowledge…

Robert Bear, creator of "Invention Stories" makes a "patented" appearance at the Sherpa Chalet!

Aug. 7, 2019

My interview this week comes back to the States. My talk with Robert Bear was very interesting and educational. I found it particularly amazing that a self professed failed inventor found his success hosting a top-ranked invention podcast. (Is that what they call reinvention?) He gave a lot of grea…

Interesting Occupations

There will be CHOCOLATE! A fun chat with John Kapos (aka Chocolate Johnny) about social media!

July 24, 2019

I'm having such incredible luck speaking with Australians, and John Kapos was no exception. We must have spoken 20 minutes both before and after I recorded our interview. He's one of those people you have an feeling of instant familiarity with. He's clearly passionate about Perfection Chocolates an…
