Help! We Have A Teenager!

9/28/2021
Episode 101 is coming out as a celebration of my little girl becoming a not so little girl anymore. We have done the parental thing: we've blinked our eyes and this little human that was seriously just taking her first steps and just saying her first word is now turning 13 years old. How in the world does this happen? I don't even personally know Doc Brown, so how would I have borrowed his Delorean and accelerated it to 88 to get to where we are now?! So, the cliche is true. They all may...

Never Too Late To Live

8/31/2021
Episode 100 of the podcast is here! Appropriately so, it's me talking about some corners I have turned in my life recently and my hope to inspire YOU to be able to do the same. This may need to be categorized as a TimTalk (is that a thing? Can I ™ that, or WHAT?!). Quickly, I didn't acknowledge one time that this is my 100th episode. Shame on me for that. I will properly cheer on the next episode as we work on the second set of 100 episodes, eh? As a human who happened to have been born as...

Destini Manifests Kindness For All

7/28/2021
Episode 99 features a glorious human being: Destini Ann. If you've seen her on Instagram or Twitter, you may recognize her more as ManifestDestini. If you're on TikTok, go find her as DestiniAnn. Oh, you're not on TikTok? Well, she's got over 1 million followers there now... so go see why so many other people love hearing from Destini! I'm thrilled that Destini is now the second guest of my newest series: "Who Tells Your Story?" She is so "on the verge" of blowing up even more right now...

Father's Day 2021

6/21/2021
Episode 98 is my annual Father's Day episode. Last year was the first year I didn't post one of these. Fittingly, as we sat today (on Father's Day) and tried to remember what our family actually did to celebrate Father's Day last year: we did nothing. So, it works out that I didn't record or post my normal episode that year, either. I recorded this episode the day before Father's Day this time 'round... which means that I recorded it on Juneteenth. I talked in this episode about some of...

Dave Almy: The Words That Changed His Life

5/25/2021
Episode 97 is a bit of a rollercoaster episode with Dave Almy. A very honest and real conversation, that has a lot of laughs and an almost equal number of moments that cause to take great pause. This episode was recorded almost exactly 2 years ago. I continued to hold this for the right time and that time is now! It's finally ready to be out here for your consumption. I'm gonna give a quick shout-out to previous guest of the podcast: Bruce Mendelsohn, for connecting Dave and me for this...

WHAT Makes Jess Rosado Feel Like An Odd Bird Out?

4/14/2021
Episode 5 of "We're Here Alone Together" (W.H.A.T.) features Jess Rosado: blogger, photographer, designer, mom and creative extraordinaire. You should find her @OddBirdOut on Instagram really quick. Go go go. This is Episode 96 of the podcast. Jess and I have known each other since maybe 2005 or so, and we met via the world of Flickr. We talked a little about that early time, the social media platform we were on before the words "social media" were such a mainstay. Jess talked about how...

The Her-Story of Rebekka Guðleifsdóttir, Pt. 2

3/2/2021
Episode 95 features Icelandic visual artist Rebekka Guðleifsdóttir. Is there such a thing as "admiration at first sight" that is similar in its nature to the whole "love at first sight" thing? I have to assume there is... and that is what my relationship with Rebekka is rooted in. I'm excited that she becomes the first guest of my newest series: "Who Tells Your Story?" This is the second half of our long conversation. Did you listen to the 1st half? If you didn't... seriously, you need to...

The Her-Story of Rebekka Guðleifsdóttir, Pt. 1

Episode 94 features Icelandic visual artist Rebekka Guðleifsdóttir. Is there such a thing as "admiration at first sight" that is similar in its nature to the whole "love at first sight" thing? I have to assume there is... and that is what my relationship with Rebekka is rooted in. I'm excited that she becomes the first guest of my newest series: "Who Tells Your Story?" The year was 2005. I was dating my now wife. I was working at my old job that had me traveling around the world... quite a...

Our Mental Health In 2021

1/28/2021
Episode 93 is the first of 2021 and a brief check-in for all of us on our mental well-being. Literally for all of us: myself very much included. The world has changed a ton for a lot of us since we turned the pages on calendars from 2020 to 2021. Or has it? That's an actual question I wanted to sit down with for this episode. 2020 was not the best year ever for so many of us. I feel pretty safe saying that. I mean, unless you're Jeff Bezos or one of the other billionaires that just got...

2020 Yields A Bountiful Thanksgiving Cornucopia

11/25/2020
Episode 92 is my 3rd Thanksgiving episode. Last year's episode was heavily inspired by the life of Mr. Rogers and featured an inspiring message and challenge based on the kindness represented by Mr. Rogers' legacy. This year's episode is painted more with the current landscape of our country and, really, our planet during the fall and winter months of 2020. With everything going on in the world right now, I decided to just take some of it on with this solo, guest-less episode. I think, in...

Chris Colbert Reminds Us To Say Their Name

10/27/2020
Episode 91 features Chris Colbert, the CEO of DCP Entertainment, which just launched a new show titled "Say Their Name". We talk about that podcast a lot in this episode, let me first tell you about Chris. He began his career in audio production over a decade ago as an intern and consultant for Sirius Satellite Radio (now SiriusXM Radio). While simultaneously earning his degree from Seton Hall University, he helped create Oscar and Grammy award winner Jamie Foxx’s comedy and music channel...

David Gans: A Life Beautifully Improvised

10/6/2020
Episode 90 features David Gans, songwriter, musician, author, photographer, radio host of The Grateful Dead Hour... and, what did I miss? I've recently released a few episodes recorded pre-Covid. This is another of those and, again, I kind of like hearing these conversations during what was a simpler, much different time. This conversation took place near New Year's 2019, believe it or not. A number of reasons held this one back so long, including other podcasts in the Osiris Media family...

WHAT Would The Red Sox Do Without Photographer Billie Weiss?

9/23/2020
Episode 5 of "We're Here Alone Together" (W.H.A.T.) features Billie Weiss, the Senior Manager of Photography for the Boston Red Sox. If you, like me, follow him on social media, you may actually think his name is BJ Weiss. That's merely his handle on most of social media, however... so go find him as @BJWeiss22 on both Instagram and Twitter. Okay... I assume you handled following him on social media now so you can better follow who this artiste is (that is not a typo... he absolutely is...

Damon Miller Is Surfing Life's Big Waves

9/1/2020
Episode 88 features Damon Miller, a CEO and longtime surfer from Oregon. This is another blast from the past episode, actually recorded in the summer of 2019. I started to feel the guilt while editing this recently of it taking me so long to get to... but I actually really enjoy the nostalgia of hearing these conversations that happen pre-Covid, if I'm being honest. Damon starts us off, going back to his great grandfather moving to the Miami area from Wisconsin back in the 1920's. His great...

WHAT Gave Ashley Girres A Fierce Mind?

8/11/2020
Episode 4 of "We're Here Alone Together" (W.H.A.T.) features Ashley Girres, an author and Mom very well known on Twitter as @aFierceMind. Just pause right now and get onto Twitter and go follow her. I'll wait for you to take care of that. Good... you're back. Thanks for doing that. Actually: you're welcome for that. You'll thank me. Ashley has been making me LOL for quite some time now with her incredibly witty tweets. Not just that, but she is also immensely bold, honest, and real. I...

Black Lives (More Than) Matter

7/21/2020
Black Lives Matter. If you can't say that, or can't agree with it: this just may not be the episode for you. I paused while typing these show notes right after those 2 sentences there. Like I was standing at a 4-way intersection, deciding which path to take. Do I go for simplicity and a bereft approach (unlike the actual episode itself) and just leave those sentences as the entirety of the notes? That would feel "cool" to do... kind of like a big mic drop. But, not a smart SEO move, right?...

WHAT Ofosu Thinks Of Racial Equality & Finding Balance

6/16/2020
Ofosu of the Balance meditation app is my guest for Episode 85. Ofosu is also known in the music world as "Born I", and you can find his music basically everywhere (Soundcloud, Spotify, Youtube). This is the 3rd of the "We're Here, Alone Together" episodes; meaning we don't really get into the whole fatherhood side of things. We recorded this episode on June 6, 2020, just 12 days after the murder of George Floyd by police officers in Minneapolis. I have been very outspoken about how much...

WHAT Is Life Like For Dr. Ana In Romania?

5/26/2020
The 2nd Episode of my side series of the Daddy Unscripted podcast: We're Here Alone Together (W.H.A.T.) features my longtime friend Ana who is a doctor in Bucharest, Romania. When I started this side project of my podcast, I immediately thought of Ana and a conversation I had with her a little over a month ago about how things got out of control quickly with the spread of the Corona Virus. The stories she told were both fascinating and immensely troubling. Ana talked about a large number...

Matt Darwin's Family Is Growing

5/13/2020
Episode 83: Matt Darwin, listener of the podcast, becomes an important guest! Matt was so real, honest, and open in this conversation about the path for him and his wife from having an only child to adding a 4th to their little family of 3. Matt normally would be making the commute to his law firm in Manhattan from his home in New Jersey on the daily. But, at the time we recorded this (April 8, 2020), shelter-in-place and quarantine life had been underway for close to a month. We spent some...

WHAT Does Jose Rosado Do For Mental Health?

5/6/2020
The official First Episode of my side series of the Daddy Unscripted podcast: We're Here Alone Together (W.H.A.T.) is here. My guest is Jose Rosado, who was on Daddy Unscripted Episodes 7 and 10. If you remember, Jose was instrumental in helping Daddy Unscripted become a podcast. A big part of that is because Jose had his own podcast going strong back then: The Angry Millenial Podcast. Jose works in the Mental Health field and his family of four live in Maryland. His wife (Jess) and I have...
