The Sherpa Screening Room: Faces To Watch- Joe Finfera! (Day 3 of 3)

Sept. 11, 2020

I think if Joe wasn't an actor, I could imagine him as a motivational speaker. You'll hear the positivity just flowing out of his words. This is a guy that you can tell puts 1000% in his life, whether it be fitness, acting, business, or even being a dad. It's funny, I completely forgot that I once …

The Sherpa Screening Room: Faces To Watch- Patrick Harney! (Day 2 of 3)

Sept. 10, 2020

It's funny that Patrick Harney went from a guy who had no interest in being in a school production to a guy involved in promoting a movie he's involved with. He was talking about the importance of being a good person, and I could tell how important that still is to him. His fiance is certainly a lu…

Aug. 14, 2020

You know, maybe I could take a cue from Robert and call my show, "$herpa: Too Many Podca$t$!" Or not. That title looks like I fell asleep at my keyboard.
