Aaron's Life Has Been No Simple Road

Episode 67 features Aaron of one of the fellow Osiris Media network podcasts: No Simple Road. I'm so incredibly proud and honored and humbled to be a part of the Osiris Podcast family. I really am. I've met some great people through our other podcasts and I've had some great guests on from the podcasts, as well. Aaron is another in that continually growing list. Yes. I admit that the title of this episode is sort of hokey. Because, yeah... his podcast is called No Simple Road and all. But,...


Jeff Brunner is NOT Jeff Brunner

Episode 66 starts off with quite the game show loser sound from old Price is Right episodes. I really got my hat handed to me in like the first 30 seconds of my conversation with my friend Jeff. Very significant emphasis on the word "friend" there. For a very good reason. You'll have to listen to the episode to get the reasoning behind all of this because typed words really don't do justice to my falling on my face. I have known Jeff and his wife since some time in 2006. We met via Flickr....


Jon Bailey of 2 Dads With Baggage

Episode 65 features Jon Bailey, half of the "2 Dads With Baggage" you may know from Instagram, Twitter or their website. As is par for the course of the podcast: Jon and I talked about the history of his family for a bit to start. We didn't dig into these things explicitly, but it was very interesting that he had family members that came to America on the Mayflower in the 1600's. Jon talked about the very loving family that he was raised in. It was his big brother and himself, with their...


Father's Day 2019

Episode 64 is time for my annual Father's Day episode. Though I do this every year, it's not the same every year. Because of a few things going on with people around me and people I'm talking to, this episode kind of caught me by surprise with the direction it took. Unscripted. You got that part of the title of the podcast, right? I almost wrote out a script for this episode, believe it or not. I think if I had, and maybe even did that every day for a week, it would be quite different each...


Adam Scheinberg: The Path Music Set For His Life

Episode 63 features Adam Scheinberg, who wears and has worn many hats in his life. Adam is the architect of (as you know it today). He also did a lot of the masterminding of and does a major portion of the web work for them. If that somehow isn't enough for you (because it wasn't for Adam!), he is also the president of the Mockingbird Foundation. Adam was directed to me by Brando Rich of Cash or Trade (you may remember him from episode 54). Adam had helped...


Bill Protzmann: The Life Saving Power of Music

Episode 62 features a semi-lengthy and fully beautiful conversation with Bill Protzmann, a man with a unique and fascinating life story. The common thread weaving through Bill's entire life is music. And it's music that literally saved his life, some nearly 12 years ago now. Bill and I started talking and I could quickly tell this was going to be another great discussion. I won't deny it, there have been times when I've second-guessed the idea of doing all of these "interviews" unscripted....


Rob Gorski: The Autism Dad

In episode 61, I had a life-altering conversation with Rob Gorski, creator of "The Autism Dad". Life-altering is an appropriate and not exaggerated description of our discussion. I, of course, am hopeful it has anywhere close to that effect and meaning for at least some of you. As I said in my intro: Rob is one of those people that, to me, are deserving of the title "hero". Truly. Rob's ability to overcome some of the challenges he and his family are faced with is the stuff heroes are made...


Will Henson: Living a Unique Adventure

In episode 60, Will Henson tells us all about the adventures of his life. These are not just his adventures, but those of his Dad and his Mom during his youth, as well. Will came to the podcast via Episode 56's guest Jon Loomis. So, a special thanks to Jon for leading such a great man to Daddy Unscripted. When Will first emailed me, I couldn't have been more surprised by some of the things he quickly mentioned about his childhood. His parents' research of bats and mentioning to me that he...


Benjamin Dixon Is Building A Great Legacy

Another episode that Twitter gets a lot of the glory for bringing me yet another fantastic guest. I am not one to spend my time in just one arena. I think that goes for pretty much all aspects of my life. True, when I get into something I really get into that something. But, I throw my net pretty wide. For some years now, I have been extremely interested in the things that are not right in front of my face. That meant looking outside of mainstream media and network news. This opened my eyes...


David Newhan: Living a Major League Miracle

In Episode 58, former major league baseball player David Newhan tells some remarkable stories. He fought through his minor league journey and when his shot for making a big league roster arrived, he made it impossible for them to put him back on the bench. When he had a horrific accident nearly 10 years ago, he fought, quite literally, for his life with that very same tenacity. In October of 2016, Episodes 19 & 20 of the podcast featured my conversations with hall of fame baseball writer...


Michael Shields: Writer, Podcaster, Father

Episode 57 features Michael Shields, editor in chief of Across The Margin (in its written and Podcast format). Michael not only has his "Beyond The Margin" podcast on the Osiris Podcast Network; he also is a part of the Welcome To The Party, Pal podcast and the God, Ween, Evan podcast. Yeah... I thought I was busy, too. Michael finds time for all of this, somehow, as well as for being a Dad! Michael and I have wanted to sit down and do an episode for my podcast for a long time now. Somehow,...


Jon Loomis of Baseballism

For Episode 56, Jon Loomis, one of the founders of Baseballism, talks about his Dad, his childhood, his early relationship with his wife, being a Dad and what led to the creation of Baseballism as we know it today. For you fans and regulars of the podcast: you know about my love for baseball. I haven't been as direct, however, about my tremendous respect for well-run and unique companies/brands. So, diving into the people behind Baseballism to inquire about good guests for the podcasts...


Former MLB Pitcher Ryan Dempster

Episode 55, the final episode of 2018, features Ryan Dempster as my guest. I am not going to be presumptuous about your knowledge of who that is. So, here's some details before we get too far. Ryan is a former MLB pitcher. He came up through the Florida Marlins organization and eventually went on to play for the Red, Cubs, Rangers and Red Sox. His longest stint was that of 8 seasons with the Chicago Cubs and he finished his career with the Boston Red Sox. Not just because of my ridiculous...


Brando Rich of Cash or Trade

Episode 54 is my conversation with Brando Rich, co-founder of "Cash or Trade". If you enjoy going to concerts, you should definitely check Cash or Trade out (either via their website or their app on your smartphone). Brando and I took a long walk down his life's road before we got to where he is today. He told a lot of stories about his childhood in the Northeast. I really enjoyed the tales that went beyond teenage mischief about himself and his brother. As teenagers, their love for music...


Evan Kaufman: Formerly a Dude, Now a Dad (and so much more...)

In Episode 53, you'll get to meet the hilarious Evan Kaufman. Evan is another fellow plate-spinner, like me, tackling numerous projects all at once and laughing in the face of fear of new(ish) parenthood whilst doing so. You might even say he guffaws at it. People may look at you funny if you do. But, go ahead. Try it anyway. We really tackled a lot of different topics in this conversation. We kicked right in with a discussion about the early phases of a baby and the common difficulty of...


Chris Plowman Talks Fatherhood and Card Collecting

Episode 52 is my conversation with Chris Plowman. Have you gotten tired of hearing me say how I met my guest on Twitter? If so, hold on tight... because I met Chris on Twitter. Shocking, right? I am definitely not unique in the fact that a lot of my childhood involved collecting and trading baseball cards. I have immensely fond memories of riding the public bus with my brother for sometimes close to an hour to get to a (somewhat) local card shop to flip through old cards for any wanted gems...


Brian Brinkman: Beyond Beyond The Pond

Episode 51 is the second half of my conversation with fellow podcaster, fellow Dad, fellow music and sports fanatic: Brian Brinkman. Brian makes up one half of the team that brings you the Beyond the Pond podcast. If you haven't heard checked out that podcast yet and you love music, you should make sure to make your way over to them. Beyond the Pond is a partner podcast with Daddy Unscripted in the Osiris Podcast network. Shortly after the Osiris network officially launched, Brian and I...


Brian Brinkman: Beyond The Dad

Episode 50 is the first half of my conversation with fellow podcaster, fellow Dad, fellow music fanatic: Brian Brinkman. Brian makes up one half of the team that brings you the Beyond the Pond podcast. If you haven't heard checked out that podcast yet and you love music, you should make sure to make your way over to them. Beyond the Pond is a partner podcast with Daddy Unscripted in the Osiris Podcast network. Shortly after the Osiris network officially launched, Brian and I started the...


Father's Day 2018

Episode 49... so close to 50 and it's a mini-episode. Father's Day is always a perfect opportunity for me to sit and get a little personal. Father's Day and Thanksgiving always bring that out of me on the podcast and it should allow those of you with shorter timeframes to listen to an episode a great chance to get an actual full episode in a single sitting! This is my 3rd Annual Father's Day episode. And I'm getting closer to the mark of 30 years of Father's Days without my Dad around to...


Chris Lizotte: His Music History & Is There Good Christian Music?

Episode 48 is the long-awaited second half of my conversation with Chris Lizotte. I'll repeat what I started Episode 47 with as my description of Chris, that he is known as and for a great many things by a great many people. He is a successful Christian music artist -- Wait! Where are you going?! I say the words "Christian music" and you want to leave this episode behind already? Well, you'll be missing out. This is another great episode filled with a lot of laughter, deep conversation and...
