Episodes of Flies in the Kitchen

  I was home from college on a fall break in 1997 when I found out John Denver had died in a plane crash in the Pacific Ocean.  It wrecked me.  This brief tribute will explain a little bit of why.    Also, here is the video from the recording I
I first met James Houston when I decided to start learning karate in my mid-20s, living in a small, southwestern Virginia town along the New River. I wasn't sure what to expect when I signed up for karate, only that it seemed like there was a g
Loss is a weird thing, isn't it?  The day I recorded this, I had found out a friend had died.  Just out of the blue.  Hit by a truck while running.  It was a big blow.  I had already decided on a topic, and on its face, it seems like the wrong

Lately I've been looking at a lot of my Facebook memories, and being amazed at how oblivious we all were to what life would look like just one year later.  Large groups closely gathered around tables, no masks, sharing pizza, and laughing.  So

When Chuck Brodsky was 21, he made a decision that he was going to follow his passion to become a songwriter who tells stories that matter. He hitchhiked from his hometown in Philadelphia to San Francisco and never looked back. I've been wantin
  This is a first. My buddy Zach Whitney loves the woods.  He loves to go hiking in the woods whenever he can.  So I thought it'd be fun to take a walk with Zach and record a conversation about music, mindfulness, and nature.  Three things I kn
  I met Jeromy when he was hired as the Production and Technical Coordinator at the church I was going to, and started noticing his really great eye for capturing moments on film, both in photos and video. He had such a great ability to co

I have seriously been trying to get Wyze on this podcast for months. I met her in November at an event in Columbus where she was sharing about her photography and her Vlog, and knew I wanted to hear more. We played email tag for way too lo

This is Part Two of my conversation with Ron Freeman (Just in case the title didn't give it away).  If you've not listened to Part 1, How about checking that one out first? In this half, we chat a lot about community, and what that looks like
  I honestly don't know how I ended up with 2 hours of tape with Ron Freeman.    Actually, that's not entirely true.  I had a feeling that when I invited Ron to sit down with me and chat, it would be a long and fruitful conversation.  I tell yo

I met Jamie Ridenhour through a mutual friend in North Carolina who was promoting Jamie's son's Kickstarter for his CD (both of whom I hope to have on the podcast soon as well!), and just knew I wanted to chat with him about all of his stuff. 
Wow, this guy. Ruvane has been making music his job for a long time.  I got a chance to sit with him in his "Atmosphere Room" (I erroneously called it his Control Room) in his basement studio for a nice long chat.  We talked about his history,
In this episode, Chris Shaw comes by and we sit and talk about the many hats he wears around Columbus, and the way he wants to evolve as a musician.  He really has a lot going on, and I try to cram it all in here... From Topher James and Biscu
  Ok, here's a new thing.  This is an audio podcast, obviously, but I need to add a few things for your eyes so you can make sense of this episode. Today I'll be talking with Daniel Ferlan, a local painter who has a limited  exhibit at Sharon
