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!
Ability Shirts is a nonprofit organization that supports individuals with “unique abilities.” Adam Farris, Director of Ability Shirts, prefers to use the term to categorize those who are considered to have disabilities.
Ability Shirts sells awareness products—some of which are handmade or made by individuals with unique abilities.
Adam’s unique abilities give him the perspective to lead a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving those who share them. Adam hopes to have a retail storefront in the future to sell more awareness products, and to hire other talented young men and women with unique abilities.
I met Scott Teplin pretty soon after I moved to Brooklyn and quickly became a fan of his artwork. I’m really fascinated and inspired by his use of crowdfunding and his most recent Kickstarter brought in well above his goal: $26,417.00! A chat we had recently in our local coffeeshop, Steeplechase, inspired me to invite him to be on the podcast, and it turned out to be a really great show. Check out Scott’s résumé here. It’s pretty impressive and I didn’t do such a great job with his intro on the show. Saying stuff is hard.
I had a great time chatting with author Isaac Oliver about Intimacy Idiot, his debut collection of essays which is already scoring kick-ass reviews. Also on this show, a track from my new remix album and music from CACAW.
Comedienne Tranna Wintour joins me on the podcast today and we chat about her one woman show Trantasy which opens next week at Montreal Fringe. Though I’ve been aquatinted with Tranna for quite some time, this was our first chance to really chat. Enjoy!
In other news, I am getting this podcast going for real again. Look for episodes every week. Next week’s guest will be author and vegan goddess, Victoria Moran.
Author T. Cooper is my guest on the podcast today. We talk about his latest book, Changers, and its accompanying website. T. is really fun to talk to and I’m thrilled to share this interview with you. Enjoy!
