Jon Wilson

I've known Jon since Bible school back in 2004. He continues to be one of my best friends (even though i've only seen him a handful of times in the last decade). Every conversation with Jon is authentic, open, and real. About a year ago Jon and I tried to start a podcast, we recorded a couple episodes but nothing ever came of it. I am hopeful he and I can resume that in the very near future (stay tuned). Until then please enjoy a conversation about silence.

This week we finish up our conversation with Autumn. If you haven't had a chance to listen to the last episode I highly suggest you do so! In part 2 we start talking about our relationship with food, body image, intuitive eating, fat shaming, and raising kids to have a healthy view of themselves and food. Enjoy!

Autumn Meyer part 1

8/16/2019
More
This week we have the joy of talk with a local mom, wife, blogger, podcaster, and all around great person, Autumn Meyer. This was a longer interview so I've broken it up into two parts. In part one we talk a lot about family of origin and how that plays into parenting and conflict resolution with our partners. You can find Autumn at awholestory.com, or on facebook and instagram under that same name. You can also find her podcast wherever you listen to podcasts. Enjoy!

Fatherhood

7/22/2019

on August 30, 2009 at 1203am I became 'daddy' for the first time. It was at once joyful and terrifying. The weight of the world was on my shoulders. I not only had myself and my wife to care for, but now this tiny human, completely helpless. I remember staring at her while she slept, not quite believing that we had a child. James and I have 7 children between us aged 1.5yrs to 19yrs. We sat down early one morning to have a chat about what fatherhood means, about sacrificing what we think...

Jace Taylor

James wanted to title this episode 'My son is gay! (now what do I do?)'. I just titled it 'Jace Taylor'. Jace is a recent high school graduate, has been very involved in ASB and sports medicine, and (as the title implies) has come out as gay. Jace was gracious enough to sit down with his dad and me to talk about his journey of self discovery, coming out to his parents and family and his friends. We also talk about recent events where he was hired by a christian summer camp as a counselor...

Skyler Gillispie

More
Skyler is a local teacher and basketball coach. He married his high school sweetheart and they have a daughter together. We kind of shotgun this interview, hitting a broad range of topics. We get in to family of origin, marriage, adoption, drug addiction, teen suicide, high schoolers and the world they live in. We didn't have time to get into any of the topics as deeply as James and I would have liked. Rest assured we will get Skyler back on the show!

Today we get to chat with local hero Charlie Hanson. Charlie is co owner of The Elizabeth Station (local beer, wine, and cider shop with lots of good things), and Primer (local coffee shop with real good coffee). Charlie was my boss (and James') at Starbucks. We chat about growing up conservative, choosing relationship over being right, marriage, fatherhood, adoption. I feel like we just scratched the surface with Charlie and will need to get him back. Enjoy!

Episode #4, Q&A with counselors

5/14/2019
More
Relationships are like cars. If you do regular upkeep and maintenance, if you get your oil changed regularly and check in with the tech about what they, as a third party, are seeing under the hood and take preventative steps to correct problems, you probably wont have a breakdown. But if you ignore the mechanic, don't take any preventative measures, turn a deaf ear to noises and whines you're hearing, you might just throw a rod and have the whole thing blow up in your face. This week we...

This week we are talking fatherhood with Matt Atkins. Matt is a husband, father of 5, and grandfather of 4. We talk about the many challenges our kids face growing up, and how we can walk that journey with them. On a technical note, this is the last episode we recorded using a single microphone for 3 people. There are some background noises (water glass being picked up/set down, me scratching my beard...etc) that may irritate you, the listener. They certainly did me as I edited the...
