It's Anthony from "The Independent Mouth" (thank goodness "The Conservative Nostrils" stayed home)!

June 9, 2021

You know, I actually SAY, "You sound like you're in a hole!" in this interview. For this episode Rebels, sadly, I do. But it's not too deep a hole, I promise. But what an interesting guest Anthony was. In a still relatively young life, he's experienced more highs and lows than most people, myself …

Another episode in my never-ending pursuit to bring all music to the masses! Or something like that. You can just tell how much fun it was to talk to Aubrey.

I hope that when you, dear listeners, hear interviews, like today's chat with Michael, keep in mind that there is always hope even when things may seem to be at their most dire or bleak. It's certainly not the easiest thing to focus on in hard times, but trust me, it's there. Just have a listen to…

We get the "Big Skinny" on Kenney Pope of "Casual Conversations"!

May 19, 2021

After over 140 episodes, I'm surprised that I haven't spoken to to more podcasters with radio backgrounds, with of course, the exception being the brilliant Mr. Bruce (or Uncle Bruce, if you're listening to our "Too Many 80's Songs" mini-podcast on Spotify....and why aren't you?? Either way, the ch…

Today, you'll get to hear Deborah's story, which is also a reflection on the highs and lows of her li…

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.

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…
