A Lesson In Resilience: Meet Former Playboy Playmate, Deborah Driggs!

May 12, 2021

In a lot of my episodes up to this point, I've spoken to people who've had their time in the spotlight. ( Not me, Rebels, I sunburn too easily).They've all gone down separate roads since that time. Today, you'll get to hear Deborah's story, which is also a reflection on the highs and lows of her li…

Podcaster

Hold that Falsetto! It's David Fedor of "Bee Gees (and Me)"!

May 5, 2021

The Bee Gees, you say? Yep. I think it's pretty cool how David uses his passion as a superfan and reaches out to other superfans with a great podcast. ( Listen on Spotify, and hear their music along with the show.) Some of you might not be aware of their whole catalogue. They're just not the artist…

Relationships

In an Out of Bounds Relationship? Let's call Relationship Coach, Andrew W. Shepherd!

April 28, 2021

Now, Rebels, you just KNOW that a guy who went from an engineer in Great Britain to a teacher in Brazil to a relationship coach in Los Angeles has got an interesting tale to tell. And luckily, on today's episode, you get to hear that story. (And if you didn't, talk about a waste of a show notes int…

Carmelle Jean-Francois of cFIT Coaching Makes the Sherpa break a sweat! (And the townspeople complain about the smell....)

April 21, 2021

This may come as a bit of a shock to you, Rebels,but Carmelle told me before our interview that she really doesn't do many podcast interviews. Now you're probably thinking, "Whaaaaaaaat??!!" Here's a lady who is an ideal podcast guest. She's got interesting stories about her fitness journey. She's …

Podcaster

It's a Royal Flush with Wize of "Stuck In My Mind" (Please insert "Sherpa Bathroom Joke" here...)!!!

April 14, 2021

What impresses me so much about a guy like Wize (a Wize guy? No...nevermind.)is how driven that he is as a podcaster. He wants his voice to have a place in your audio/visual media. And I can see that happening. Hey, if I'm able to bring my humor to a podcast, anything is possible, right? But anyway…

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Jill Whelan!

April 7, 2021

What a pleasure this interview was, Rebels! I've been fortunate to interview a few former child stars, but Jill really made it her mission to be involved with entertainment, one way or the other. And as you'll hear in the interview, so much of her life has come full circle. I thought it was so cool…

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…

The Magic is Back! It's Jake Strong of "3 Questions with Jake Strong"!

March 24, 2021

I'm not sure who's having more fun on the magician episodes; the magician or me? Once again, I was amazed by a great card trick, that you can witness on my social media pages @sherpalution. Jake is a talented young performer who will certainly go far. Maybe one day he and previous guest, magician A…

Positivity

Please share this episode, and help save a young boy's life!!

March 18, 2021

I know. This isn't the sort of title you'd normally expect from an episode of Too Many Podcasts! Nor the interview that you will hear in this episode. But, imagine yourself in the place of my guest, David Ogman, for a moment. You have a young son with a rare, fatal genetic disease and you want to d…

Communication

We "Talk About Talk" with Communication Coach Dr. Andrea Wojnicki (between the laughing)!

March 17, 2021

This episode was just too much fun! I think Dr. Andrea and I were laughing about 15 minutes before we started recording, and 20 minutes after her interview. No small surprise, she's a wonderful conversationalist with a great sense of humor. I told her beforehand to just have fun, and did we ever! I…

Travel

World Traveller Gary Arndt of "Everything Everywhere Daily Podcast" makes it to Mount Podcastia!

March 10, 2021

It's fun when I do a little stalking, er, recon, , ummmm....research, on my guests and find out lots of interesting things about them. So, if you're a travel lover, check out Gary's website (listed below) for great pictures, fascinating blogs, and oh yes, a podcast or two! The only way I'll ever ge…

Podcaster

When you "app"-solutely need a "Podcast Overhaul", Tiago is your go-to guy!

March 3, 2021

How many podcasters do you know with their own podcast, and a podcast app to go with it? That many? Wow, I've got to get out more...But I digress. I enjoyed talking with Tiago about this "casting of pods" world. I strongly recommend his app too. Very simple to use.(Plus, this show is on it!) If I w…

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Timothy McLaughlin!

Feb. 24, 2021

After our interview, Tim was telling me how he met Tom Hanks,when he was on "From The Earth To The Moon." He said talking to Tom Hanks is like talking with your neighbor. He said he really appreciated how Tom treats people so nice, and he said that he wants to do that with his career, as well. As f…

Music

Casey Bozell shows us how to "Keep Classical Weird"! ( No bathing in the tuba, please...)

Feb. 17, 2021

Yes, Rebels, this episode truly is a Season 6 favorite. Nothing like learning and laughing at the same time. Casey's podcast is a unique look at the world of classical music. And she's the first to come armed to a Sherpa interview with a violin. (If only my kazoo wasn't at the shop being tuned. Or…

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Wil Wilson!

Feb. 10, 2021

So far this season, I've spoken to 2 guys with beards that could house the Sherpa-Lu Studio players! (Hmmm....that gives me an idea. ) Unfortunately, I didn't get to speak with Wil for very long, because he had other interviews lined up, and his daughter wasn't feeling that great, so he was off to …

Podcaster YouTuber

It's John from "From Podcast to Vodcast" (...to Sherpa?)

Feb. 3, 2021

I think if you've got a podcast and you want to bring it to a video platform, then John's show is what you need to listen to. And of course, if you're looking for an example of what not to do week, to week, congratulations, Columbus, welcome to the New World! Wait, did I say "Welcome to Season 6"? …

Too Many Podcasts! It's The Season 5 Postseason!

Jan. 27, 2021

Seriously? Five seasons already???And what a ride it's been. I particularly enjoyed this season for getting to talk to folks from so many different walks of life. It's always fun to hear about stuff you've never heard before, and I had lots of that, too. I now know about Funko Pops, thanks to not, …

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Billy Van Zandt! (Season 5 Finale)

Jan. 22, 2021

It's so cool when I get to interview such creative and multi-talented people for my season finales, don't you think? Billy Van Zandt certainly fits the bill. His publicist Jian, who was also a HUGE help in setting up the interview, sent me a copy of his book, Jane, Get In The Car, which I read off …
