    Episode 101 - 36 Days and The City That Is Never Finished

    They say that New York is "The City That Never Sleeps" but it's also "The City That Is Never Finished" and the same can be said of me and my trip through this life. I just survived 36 and then some of the most challenging days I have experienced. I am happy to be on the other side, moving forward. Thanks for listening!

    Episode 100 - Death, Life and Musicals

    100 Episodes! I know, I can't believe it either. I spent the last month figuring out a way to celebrate or commemorate or something. And, unfortunately I came up empty. So, here's another 17 or so minutes of me ruminating on my life and various "struggles." Thanks for listening! Here's to another 100 and more!

    Episode 96 - Existential Crisis

    Hello, friends! It's a new week and a new you! Well, we can at least try can't we? Some talk today about Macon Blair's new movie "I Don't Feel at Home in this World Anymore," as well as updates on Love For Kitui and Sally Grayson's Indiegogo campaign. Is that enough? No? Well, there's always next Monday!

    Episode 95 - Sally Grayson

    It's a great time to be alive, to be an American...living overseas! I know, Achievers, that not all believe this is a dystopian future we're living in. But people in other countries wonder what we are doing. They really, wonder. Sally, who hails from the magical land of Michigan, is one of those people. When she's not pondering how we've lost our collective conscious she's making really bad ass music, or performing on the German version of The Voice, or giving a Ted Talk or being a mom. Sally's got a new Black Swift - that's the name of her band and it's no bullshit, let me tell you! She's got a brand new album coming out called "See Me Human" and she's got some stuff to say about it. Get ready!

    Episode 94 - Blizzardy

    Hello, friends! Beware of Blizzard Stella which is headed our way. It's about to get blizzardy up in here. Is that a word? Probably not. Oh well. Some words about my friends at Love For Kitui, 100 year old security guards, home improvement, self-improvement, improvement improvement. It's only 15 minutes long, you'll get through it.

    Episode 93 - Jesse Sprinkle

    Jesse Sprinkle (Poor Old Lu, Demon Hunter, Dead Poetic, Morella's Forest) is stuck in my mind as a 13-year-old drummer for Bell Bang Villa, a Seattle area band who had recently changed their name to Poor Old Lu. I am still having a hard time accepting that he's now a 40-something husband and father of five who has been to Africa eight times and runs a recording studio (Bluebrick Recordings) in upstate New York for a living. Listen in as a couple of old guys try to figure out how they got to where they are now.
