Robin Fetter is a fantastic vegan blogger, hilarious backchannel Facebook communicator and now she’s entering the realm of vlogging and already kicking some serious ass. She and I have been internet friends for 6 some odd years so it was a real treat to chat with her here. Thanks for checking it out, and be sure to check out her website and YouTube channel as soon as you are done!
I’m so excited to welcome back my friend and former neighbor, Ann Karp. We were commune-mates at Koinonia Partners when I lived out there in Georgia. She is a painter, hiker, writer and all around awesome person who will be hiking the John Muir Trail and blogging (when she has internet access) about it on her blog, Sideways Gaze. I really love her writing so I was eager to remind you about her work. Enjoy!
Competitive distance runner Scott Spitz joins me on the podcast this week to give me the scoop on his upcoming fundraiser in which he will run the entire length of Indiana. He will be running approximately 50 miles a day for one week and is aiming to raise $50,000 for Family Reach, a non-profit that financially assists cancer patients and their families during treatment.
So happy to share this conversation with you guys. Enjoy!
Longtime listeners will remember Derek Nicoletto from his earlier appearance back in 2012 – an interview that remains among my favorites. I was really excited to talk to Derek again, this time about his new band Foam Ropes, which puts his solid songwriting in a fresh new framework. Derek has a real gift for writing evocative lyrics and melodies. When coupled with his unique ability to communicate his artistic process, we have a really great interview that I’m so happy to share this with you guys! Enjoy!
Songs: Truth In Fables
All selections from Foam Rope’s self-titled debut album which is available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and all fine digital shops.
Craig Wilkins plays guitar and synth for Houston’s The Wheel Workers, and runs Vegan Houston. We’ve been Facebook friends and vegan brothers for a while now and I love the latest album from the Wheel Workers so I figured it was time to bring him on the ol’ podcast. We had a great chat and it was nice to be reminded what a great arts town Houston is. Enjoy!
I’m so excited about today’s guest, Marcus Goldhaber, who has just come across my radar recently. I caught his show last Sunday at Bar Thalia and was blown away by his talent and charming stage presence. We talk about his approach to singing and songwriting and have a great chat about the evolution of the music industry and how we see ourselves within it. Of course, I included a few selections from his fantastic album, A Lovely Way to Spend an Evening.
Writer, performer and director Kevin R. Free joins me this week to talk about his hilariously intriguing new web series, Gemma and The Bear. Kevin stays busy with all his various projects, so I was really happy we was able to take a moment to chat. This is a super special episode: I started this podcast right at 10 years ago. Woah.
Thanks for hanging around and listening for all of this time. Doing this podcast has taught me so much and has truly given me the momentum to do so many fantastic things that are just a natural part of my life. Here’s to another ten years!
In the fall of 2011, Kristin Lajeunesse left her job and cozy apartment to pursue her dream of traveling around the country to dine at every vegan restaurant in the US. The trip took her two years during which she visited 547 restaurants, and now she’s published her lovely memoir of the trip, Will Travel For Vegan Food.
Kristin’s journey is a real inspiration to me, so I am thrilled to have her as my guest today. Let me know how you like the show and tell a friend!
