Ian Kimble-Shoestring Gold-"DEAD GIVEAWAY"

Friday night at the 12th Annual Philadelphia Film Festival was crazy! The Gershman Y was a packed house. At 630 everyone made their way to the beautiful theater on the 3rd floor. Dead Giveaway was the featured film and to my amazement it was a full house. Once the film was over the crowd love it and it showed. Cut to Saturday morning and I'm sitting with Ian Kimble from Shoestring Gold. Ian Kimble is a Writer, Director, and Producer from Philadelphia, PA. He has been acting in regional...


Philadelphia Independent Film Festival 12- Gaz Hayden-Actor

(Welcome to the 12th annual Philadelphia Independent Film Festival pt.1/3) This past Thursday night, it was my privilege to attend the second night screening of the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival. Absolution is a short film that packs the punch of a full length feature which sits with the viewer long after its over. The story follows Michael, struggling to overcome feelings of regret and deep remorse over a past traumatic event. With all hope lost, Michael (Gaz Hayden) encounters a...


Orion "Galaxy" Cosce - Pro MMA Fighter-Team Alpha Male

It had been a while since Orion was on the show. 2017 to be exact. At that time he had some amateur fights under his belt fighting for Lost Boys located in Arcata, CA and both he and his brother Louis were dominating the scene in Nor-Cal. One particular fight night both brothers were on the card (nothing new) They have a bit of a rivalry going on, but one out of love. Who can defeat their opponent the quickest? Louis was up...BOOM! 42 seconds in the first round. Orion was next... "I'll beat...


Jeremy Levine-Germ Glass

Back with another great Have Podcast Will Travel. I'm on location with professional glass artist Jeremy Levine. He invited me to his laboratory where he and a few other glass manipulators gather to create. He recently embarked on a 2 year journey to create 1000 glass cranes. This stems from his love for origami. So he made a glass crane, took a pic and posted it. In the true fashion of social media someone had to comment "why don't you make 1000" Challenge accepted! 2 years later his...


Ricky "Badass" - Owner/Operator Alpha Brew Coffee-Nootropic Coffee

After a few months of schedule conflicts, I finally got to sit down with Ricky, owner/operator of Alpha Brew Coffee. We had a 6 hour time difference to contend with and it was way past Ricky's bed time. Nonetheless he pulled his shit together and made it happen. What is Alpha Brew Coffee? Is it only for yoked Alpha males? Nope! Alpha Brew Coffee is a Veteran and Law Enforcement-Owned and Operated company focused on bringing high quality coffees that deliver unbeatable performance and...


Chip Chantry - Stand up comedian/Writer

Have podcast will travel. I am in the sacred Green Room in the back of Helium Comedy Club in Philadelphia. I almost feel like I shouldn't be back here, and well I was right. They called security and I was escorted out of the building. Shortest podcast ever! Thanks Chip! We had a great time talking about his most recent trip to LA where he was a guest on Doug Loves Movies. He just released his new comedy album, "Swingers Party" Debut at #1 on ITunes charts. His just over hour long set is...

Jessica Wolfert-Glass Artist-Jess Wolf Glass

Across town Philadelphia , somewhere in Port Richmond. I find myself on the 2nd floor of an artist collective. From 1st floor to the the top, this building is flowing with creative energy. Many different mediums are being used and manipulated in this old factory. I came on location so I could sit down and speak with Jessica Wolfert. She invited me into her laboratory, to see her creations and what she is currently working on now. She found her passion lies in sculpture and glass blowing....


Ben Barnett-Founder/Director-Philadelphia Independent Film Festival

This was a very interesting podcast. Weeks back I posed a question on Instagram. "Is there truly ever a present moment in time, or is it constant future?" I wanted have a podcast with a couple people to discuss perceptions of time. I received a DM an hour later. I clicked on the profile and it was the IG for the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival I had to do a double take. I responded and quickly learned I was speaking with the founder and director of the P.I.F.F. Ben Barnett! Well...


Myra Zerr-Neuroscientist Beyond Hello

I had a great podcasting weekend. Saturday morning kicked off with neuroscientist Myra Zerr. Myra felt compelled to explore the world of science. Although being stuffed in a rocket and going to space or exploring the depths of the ocean sounded amazing, they were also quite risky. Myra thought staying put on land and researching the brain and it's functions would be more beneficial to her and the world as a whole. She is now full immersed in guiding physicians and educating them and works...


Kyle Baum: Owner/Operator of Atom Socks

Kyle and I had a great time talking mostly all sock talk. Yeah you read that correctly. Socks man, socks. Kyle understands the importance of foot care. Foot care does start with the fabric most of us slip on daily to cover or feet. There are other factors as well but if you are an athlete , warehouse worker or first responder you know what it's like to have a shitty sock on. I would call Kyle an expert in foot care and training. Give these bad boys a try. New styles coming soon. Perfect for...

Now that he is in his 40's and has years of education and experience, Mike created NOVA3LABS Nova Three Labs started in Mike’s garage in Alberta Canada, he had a need for a superior product that was not in the industry. Mike decided to take things into his own hands and create this product for...


Johnny Concannon - Professional Session Drummer and cool human

John joined me through Google Hangouts one Thursday evening. I came across Johns Instagram profile after returning from a The Contortionist show in MD. John actually sat in for some tour dates for them and embarked on one of the most challenging and amazing experiences his mind and body has been apart of. What really stood out to me about John is that he is always learning, and looking for that new challenge that he can conquer. I love that about people. He is so passionate about drums and...


Joe Smiley: Owner/Operator of Red Planet Recording

This was a special podcast. I brought a couple weirdos with me one Sunday evening to Red Planet Recording/Rehearsal Studio. I brought a videographer friend and my drummer G. G and I started Into the Aegean here in Philly. I wanted to touch on drum micing techniques and what better way for some musicians to record a tune. FYI it is the outro song. It's still in draft phase but we captured what we needed for the podcast episode. Stay tuned for the video. Joe has really crafted a wonderful...

John Bair: Owner & Operator of Bair Knuckle Strength

I reached out to John after discovering his Instagram profile. I found we have a few things in common. I invited him to be a guest and thought we would talk all things fitness and the importance of movement. For what came next.. I was not prepared. This not your average podcast. We went for 2+ hrs , John really opened up his entire life. BAIR KNUCKLE STRENGTH Our mission is to coach you to become the BEST version of YOU! We know that when you take consistent action on becoming YOUR BEST -...


Adam Twersky-ImmersiveXR Philadelphia

"Okay, now I'm going to bring you to another experience.." said Adam (VR screen goes smokey gray) (The scene fades in) "Hhhholy shhit" I exclaimed I'm standing on a high platform on top of a giant wind turbine overlooking the field below. Among the other turbines, mine isn't spinning. I was sent up there to fix it. But I'm the new trainee and haven't been deployed in the field yet. No worries.. "Look to your left, do you see the orange case with glasses on top?" " I do" "Walk over,...

You want to be the best that you can be, and “Human Optimization” presents strategies that will help you achieve your goals. You will achieve your maximum potential, productivity, and performance, while also...


Eben Britton-former NFL Offensive Lineman/Cannabis Advocate

Eben and I had a great conversation. I really enjoy the direction this went in. He was very open about how cannabis helped him through his football career and how it enriches his life now. If you dont know Eben is a former NFL Offensive Lineman who played six seasons. There’s a growing movement among former and current NFL players calling for the league to lift its ban on cannabis. He also is Co Founder for Athletes For Care. Athletes For CARE (A4C) is a not-for-profit organization...


MMA Fighter Orion "GALAXY" Cosce-Lost Boys Arcata Ca

I met Orion last year in Northern Cali. A good friend of mine Grego introduced me. We immediately had eachother laughing and talking training and fighting. Earlier this year he knocked an opponent out in the first 36 seconds of the first round. That night wasn't over. Who was sitting in the audiance? Urijah Faber! After the fight Urijah invited Orion and his brother to train with Team Alpha Male. Watching him and his brother fight so well he must have seen special talent and a true warrior...
