Ep. 350: Adrienne Ash, Lead Singer of Plasma Canvas

Plasma Canvas is the self-professed “LOUDEST, GAYEST BAND IN THE WORLD.” And I can tell you personally that their new album DUSK is fantastic. I welcome their lead singer Adrienne Ash to the show to discuss it, what was in store for Plasma Canvas before the pandemic hit (it’s crushing), how existing as a lead…

Ep. 349: Ryan Nanni – Professional Podcast Guest

I only know Ryan Nanni from Twitter – he’s @celebrityhottub – and I don’t really know him. I only know that his tweets consistently make me laugh and he’s someone I’m happy exists in my feed. So one night I happened to check out his full profile, and found this pinned tweet: Pay dirt! I…

Ep. 348: Peaches ‘n Diesel – Instagram Famous

I work out at the same time and same gym as Peaches ‘n Diesel. Of course, that’s not how I know her, but one of our instructors (thank you, Jackie!) hipped me to her Instagram page. I was instantly taken with it. I then found out her dog, Jolene the Dolly Doodle was even more…

Ep. 345: Kip Wilson – Stoned Appetit

Kip Wilson is one of the creators and co-hosts of Stoned Appetit, a podcast where he and his co-host learn something new every episode, but “cover food, booze, weed and live music.” Sounds like a damn good time!

Ep. 344: Tom Breihan, Author of The Number Ones

When Tom Breihan was my guest two and a half years ago on Episode 253, we talked primarily about movies and how PR people can stand out in an endless swirling sea of crappy pitches. It was an incredibly fun chat, and although I had been a weekly reader of his prior to that, after…

Ep. 342: Solo – The Joy Is In The Grind

On this solo episode of the show, I talk about how true creative freedom and fulfillment comes from the grind. It’s counterintuitive, but we all have hours to fill in a day. If we fill those hours with work that we find meaningful, challenging, and enjoyable, our lives are thereby much more fulfilling. This is…
