About The Show

It's the Season 8 Last Flight Out!!

July 13, 2022

Yes, Rebels, Season 9 will start next week. But first a look back on the past season. Thanks to all who had a hand in this season, and especially to you, the listener! If you're listening on Spotify, please take a minute to …


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!

May 4, 2022

You Rebels know how much I love it when I get to learn new things. And, such was the case with interviewing John. Personally, I've never been hypnotized. But if it was, would I be persuaded to sound talented and professional…

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Keith Ross Nelson!

April 27, 2022

Today, we get a peek into the life of a traveling comic, who's been doing it for years. We also discuss kung fu, and what happens when you've got too many cats in your house. What does this have to do with comedy, you might …


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…

Movie Talk

Faster Than a Speeding...Podcaster! It's Paul Maglietta of "The Misfit Faction"!

April 13, 2022

Prior to Paul and I having this interview, he asked if I wanted to come on his show. But I'm not a good fit. I thought he meant his show about superheroes. Actually, the only superhero comics I remember watching on TV were "…

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet CJ and Lorrisa Julianus!

April 6, 2022

It's always fun when I have two guests on at once. It's also unique for me when I get to tell said guests, "Hey, I saw your movie!" And the police don't get involved! Such was the case this time around for your Sherpa. Befor…

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Frank Ferrante! (A Sherpa Select Encore Broadcast)

March 31, 2022

If you'd like to find the air times on your local PBS network for Frank's special, check here . (For reference, I'm in Season 8 now, but it doesn't hurt to go back and check out my older shows!) And, while watching his speci…


The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Neil Getzlow!

March 30, 2022

(Warning: Mature Subject Matter) This season, I've gotten to meet some people who have undergone really powerful transformations in their lives. But change, as they say, is good (If you don't count New Coke or Vegemite). Ne…

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Michael Baker!

March 23, 2022

So, would you buy a used car from this man? Of course, he's been on my podcast! There was probably so much more interesting stuff that I could have found out about Michael Baker, in addition to what he already covers. Regard…


A true survivor, we're meeting David Keck, of the "Surviving Abuse" podcast!

March 16, 2022

(Warning: Content Alert) David told me before our interview that he doesn't like to end his episodes in a downbeat manner, and I wondered how he does that. And oddly enough, our conversation, after the interview, ended with …


The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Joel Carroll!

March 9, 2022

(Content warning for this episode.) Perspective. That's the word that kept creeping up in my head for this interview. And for 2 reasons. Reason 1 was me. See, I'm normally a stickler for being on time for interviews. And wha…


Cue the Spooky Music! It's Gabe Cymbalista of "Cymbalistic Cynicism"!

March 2, 2022

Although you (obviously) couldn't see it, Gabe also has an incredible collection of movie memorabilia, in addition to his love for movies. I had a fun time getting to know him. He's definitely a kind-hearted person, even ami…


The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Christen Stovall!

Feb. 23, 2022

I've heard it said that everyone has a book in them. And I'd have to agree with that. With a little steak sauce, "Where's Waldo?" can taste just like "Gone With The Wind." (Not what that means? Um, never mind.) But what kind…


The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Lisa Czarina Michaud!

Feb. 16, 2022

So, do I now owe a "je suis désolé" to the Nation of France, after my awful Jerry Lewis impression? Maybe I can get a descendant of Dean Martin to cover for me. Getting to do this interview with Lisa was a fun experience. It…

Interesting Occupations

Kim Hawkinson gets The Sherpa on a leash! (It's dog training time...)

Feb. 9, 2022

So, this one's for all you "dog people" out there. I never got to see Kim's dog through the whole interview, but I'm sure she was aware we were recording a podcast. Or maybe I'm just not as interesting as a box of Snausages.…


A Not-So Random chat with Kristian Madsden of "The Random Kristian Show"!

Feb. 2, 2022

If there's anything to be learned after almost 200 episodes it's this: Do a good Homer Simpson impression, welcome to the show! This was another off-the-wall interview. Kristian has led quite the interesting life, and he bri…

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Michael Lloyd!

Jan. 26, 2022

It's the first "Sherpa Screening Room" of the new season. And I got to have an interesting chat with former soldier-turned-actor Michael Lloyd. All that talk about New Orleans cuisine definitely worked up an appetite! Michae…


Ben Shrewsbury of "Two Marks and a Spark" Kicks Season 8 into the ring!

Jan. 19, 2022

Don't worry if you've missed the first 7 seasons. No unanswered questions here, Rebels! (Besides, all episodes are currently available on any podcast app or sherpalution.com .) On to our guest. Ben was a lot of fun to talk t…
