Performing Arts Podcaster

Percy Brown, of "The Prince of Fresh Air" podcast, brings the charisma...AND his hair!

Sept. 14, 2022

There's that word that came to mind when I interviewed Percy. Big. A big guy, well over 6 feet tall. Big hair. Big charisma, with a big Cheshire cat grin. Moved from one big city in a big state to another big city in a big s…

Performing Arts Podcaster

Producer, Director, Actor, Author, Foodie, Podcaster-Put 'Em Together, it's Michael Arbouet of "The Quidditas Factor"!

Sept. 7, 2022

Not sure how many times I referenced it during the show,, but check out the "New York Minute" movie on YouTube. It's amazing how Michael can create so much tension for a movie in a short period of time. (I'm not talking the …

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Stanley Livingston! (Part 1 of 2)

Aug. 31, 2022

So, how cool was it for me to have a conversation with a guy who grew up on TV while I was growing up, um, off TV? This absolutely had to be a 2-parter, because Stan had so many interesting tales to tell. Today covers his fa…

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Stephen Pitalo!

Aug. 24, 2022

This one was a treat to do, Rebels. Stephen is not only a music video expert, he's also an author, musician, and too many things that I can think of! His website is a fascinating way to spend some time, especially, if you're…

True Crime

Hooray for Hollywood (Wade)! We're talking about the "Crime & Entertainment" podcast!

Aug. 17, 2022

Here's a podcast that takes true crime podcasts to another level, Rebels. Wade gets the straight story from people who were involved in crimes, or the investigation of crimes. That means you won't necessarily hear "the same …

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Dylan Kelley!

Aug. 10, 2022

I can certainly say that after well over 200 episodes, I've never heard a life story even similar to that of Dylan's. But I guess he does put that uniqueness into whatever he does, or wants to do. As you'll hear in this inte…


Everybody's Got a "Hungry Trilobyte" (Sorry, Mr. Springsteen!)! Let's Chat With Aaron Bossig!

Aug. 3, 2022

Some call Aaron Publicist Extraordinaire Steve Joiner's right hand. If I was someone's right hand, I'd probably get punched a lot with it. I enjoyed Aaron's stories of reviewing DVD's. Imagine that being your job! For me, th…


The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Christy Crandall!

July 27, 2022

Humble, Rebels. That's the word that comes to mind when I spoke with Christy. Not only did she serve her country for many years, and rise in the ranks while doing so, but she was also able to pursue her love of acting and di…

July 20, 2022

Ahh, fathers and sons! I find it so cool that Dax and Kai have a strong bond over their love of horror movies, which ultimately led to his podcast. The scariest thing I ever did with my dad was "get the screwdriver". And we…

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Jennifer Vaughn! (Season 8 Finale)

July 6, 2022

Back when I was a wee Sherpa, news anchor Walter Cronkite was considered "the most trusted man in America". Around jellybeans might have been a different story, but I digress. Sometimes, I wonder if ,in this day and age, the…

Podcaster True Crime

Although "You Hate To See It", you get to hear it , from hosts Nick and Jeff!

June 29, 2022

I really should have known better here, Rebels. Interviewing guys on a unique podcast gave me a unique interview. Who knew I'd end up talking about sleep disorders?? But Jeff and Nick had interesting tales to tell about both…

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Dale Niehaus (Again)!

June 22, 2022

So, if you were listening to this show on July 23, 2020 (and why weren't you?), you heard one of my "Faces to Watch" episodes, featuring Dale. And as we noted in this show, what a difference a year makes! I'm keeping my fing…


Eat the Microfilm! It's ex-Army spy Pete Turner, of "The Break It Down Show"!

June 15, 2022

Interesting coincidence- Pete has interviewed drummer Stewart Copeland, and a week later, I hear an interview with Tim Ferriss, and who else? Stewart Copeland! What can we conclude from this, Rebels? Stewart Copeland is clea…

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet John Anthony!

June 8, 2022

So, exactly how do you go from a middle school coach to an actor , writer, and director? Just listen to John's story and learn one way to do it. He's smart enough to know if there isn't a role out there for him, he can alwa…


Will and Karen, of "The Skeptic Metaphysicians"podcast, make an Afterlife House Call!

June 1, 2022

Jealous, Rebels! I had to tell Will and Karen before our interview how jealous I am of the audio on their podcast. So, they just laughed at me and phoned one of their previous guests to cast a spell on me.And now, I have a t…

On a comic couch? "Dannylize This", with Daniel "Papi" Gonzalez!

May 25, 2022

(WARNING: A little bit of profanity in this episode...) You know, sometimes it seems like it's open season on comics after "that slapping incident" we've all seen. Which incidentally, will be the LAST time I attempt to help …

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Travis Dunn!

May 18, 2022

Lately, I've been stumbling across guests who found a new course a bit later in life. (Well, I'd be stumbling anyway.) Travis fits that bill, being dared to attend an acting class, and subsequently getting bitten by the acti…


The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Allison Church!

May 11, 2022

Allison was lots of fun to spend time with. I think she's the first transgender guest I've had on the show. She was telling me before our interview that electrolysis is NOT fun. If I needed to do that, they'd have to break o…

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet John Moyer!

We're shooting the (Esther's) "Breeze" with Esther Brzezinski!

April 20, 2022

Esther may be in her 60's, but she doesn't look it at all. Unlike me, who is 145. But she doesn't think like someone in her 60's. A situation during the pandemic presented itself, and poof! This Canadian entrepreneur was off…
