Terry Ogburn Lives Beyond Loss

11/19/2017
More
In this, the 38th episode of the podcast, I found myself talking with Terry Ogburn. In a few of my experiences at conferences, for marketing or podcasting, I've run into Jessica Rhodes a few times now. Jessica is the CEO & Founder of Interview Connections. I honestly didn't know if anything would ever come from any of our conversations at these conferences until one day I received an email with a suggested guest. The email, from one of Jessica's staff, basically said that Terry would be an...

RJ Bee Talks Phish & Podcasts

10/18/2017
More
This is episode 37 of the podcast, and number 2 of 2 with fellow podcaster and music lover, RJ Bee. Although this episode is heavily steeped in our discussion about music and the band Phish, this may be the most that one of my "Fork in the Road" episodes focuses on fatherhood. Usually, these secondary episodes with guests are complete offshoots onto other topics. However, you'll still find some fatherly gems between RJ and myself in this one. RJ and I share some strong similarities within...

RJ Bee is a Dad

9/19/2017
More
This is episode 36 of the podcast, 1 of 2 with fellow podcaster RJ Bee. RJ is quite an intelligent man. I don't just say that because we share a very common interest in music, but because he has been working for years in the world of politics and communications. When RJ and I first connected, we both asked each other if we thought we would be good guests on each other's podcasts or not. It was almost like a lightning round on a game show as we took turns interrogating one another. I...

Sam Jennings & His Time With Prince

8/29/2017
More
This is episode 35 of the podcast, and number 2 of 2 with web designer and artist Sam Jennings. Sam is my second guest that has a large connection to a man I adore: Prince. A lot of this episode is us talking about the period of 9 years that Sam worked very closely with and for Prince. He gives a deeper view into the man that at times was so private. We talk in depth about the positive influence that Prince had on our lives, from the time we were both teenagers. After working with Prince,...

Sam Jennings

This is episode 34 of the podcast, 1 of 2 with web designer and artist Sam Jennings. Sam is my second guest that has a large connection to a man I adore: Prince. Even with this being our episode to talk about fatherhood, we do touch on some of the personal and business aspects of Sam's near decade of working with Prince. It was quite interesting to hear how much importance Prince put on family during the time Sam was involved with him. Sam joins the esteemed group of guests that do not...

Episode 033 - Brad Rothschild the Filmmaker

6/27/2017
More
The 2nd half of my conversation with Brad Rothschild, we pick up right where the previous episode left off: having a very laid-back chat which eventually leads into what Brad does for a living. He's a documentary filmmaker with films you may have even seen on Netflix or iTunes (Tree Man and Kinderblock 66: Return to Buchenwald). Brad also makes up half of the team that does The Amen Corner podcast. His partner, Steven A. Cook, you may recall was a recent guest on my podcast as well. But,...

Episode 032 - Father's Day 2017

6/21/2017
More
Father's Day is a good opportunity for a quick little episode. There are a few holidays I will do this with. Something that should please some of you who may get frustrated that my episodes don't fit into your shorter work commute. This is my 2nd Annual episode to celebrate Father's Day. It's now my 27th Father's Day without my Dad; the 9th such holiday that I, myself, am being heralded as a Dad. I still do not take that title or job lightly. For those of you who missed 2016's Father's...

Episode 031 - Brad Rothschild

6/5/2017
More
The 1st of 2 episodes with Brad Rothschild, this conversation is now becoming aline that is stretching out from its epicenter: my previous guest, Bruce Mendelsohn. So, again, a ton of thanks to Bruce for starting this rolling ball. Brad makes up half of the team that does The Amen Corner podcast. His partner, Steven A. Cook, you may recall was a recent guest on my podcast as well. But, don't let yourself think for a second that means the 4 episodes of them are anything alike. They really...

Episode 030 - Matt Thorne

5/10/2017
More
This is episode 2 of 2 with author and critic Matt Thorne. Like I said on the last episode, if you've been here for a while, you noticed that his episodes were released in reverse order. Again: don't call the authorities. I did that on purpose. The previous episode came out first because it was a little closer to the 1 year anniversary of Prince's death. That episode was focused very heavily on Prince and the book that Matt wrote some years ago chronicling his life through his music. So,...

Episode 029 - Matt Thorne & I Love Prince

4/25/2017
More
This is the 1st of 2 episodes with author and critic Matt Thorne. For those of you who are regulars, you'll catch that his episodes are being released in reverse order. That's not an error. I held off on releasing this episode so as to not completely coincide with the 1 year anniversary of Prince's death. Matt & I agreed that may not be in the best taste. But, it still made more sense to me to have this one out before his Dad episode (which will follow, shortly). I had been waiting a long...

Episode 028 - Steven A Cook Knows Politics

4/7/2017
More
This is the 2nd episode with Steven A Cook. He is the Eni Enrico Mattei senior fellow for Middle East and Africa studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. Before speaking with Steven, I not only had no clue what all that meant, but it made me laugh a little at the idea of my having a political conversation with him. Kind of like those videos you sometimes see of a professional athlete playing against a little kid. Oh, isn't that cute? Look how the pro is not even really trying and...

Episode 027 - Steven A Cook

3/14/2017
More
This is the 1st of 2 episodes with Steven A. Cook. My conversation with Steven was made possible by last episode's guest, Bruce Mendelsohn. So, many thanks to Bruce for that. I did my research on Steven immediately when Bruce mentioned him. My first thought, frankly, was that he was going to be out of my league if or when we touched on things other than just about being Dads. I saw that he is the Eni Enrico Mattei senior fellow for Middle East and Africa studies at the Council on Foreign...

Episode 026 - Bruce Mendelsohn & His Boston Marathon Bombing Experience

2/21/2017
More
This episode with Bruce Mendelsohn sincerely has changed my life. Bruce tells his story of the day's events back in 2013 of the Boston Marathon Bombings. He was a bystander, just there to meet his brother who ran in the marathon at the finish line and hang out with him afterward. The day's events, of course, changed from what everyone expected and Bruce acted before he really reacted. Bruce was very heavily involved in one of those stories of that day. One of the stories that involved...

Episode 025 - Joe Bruzzese Loves Sports and Music

2/5/2017
More
The 10th of the "Fork in the Road" (or FITR) episodes of the podcast, this is where the Host and Guest veer off from the normal topic of fatherhood to either discuss something of significance in relation to the guest, or the two engage heavily on a common interest they are passionate about. This is the 2nd episode with Joe Bruzzese, a SAHD who is a Northern California transplant from Boston. Joe and I connected over Twitter some time back and I couldn't help but become friends with him,...

Episode 024 - Joe Bruzzese

This is the 1st of 2 episodes with Joe Bruzzese, a SAHD who is a Northern California transplant from Boston. Joe and I connected over Twitter some time back and I couldn't help but become friends with him, due to his extreme loves for Boston sports teams and music. Those common interests of ours made it easy for us to get along well from the get-go. I spent between 1 and 2 years being a working from home SAHD with my oldest child. Because of that, I've always had so much more respect for...

The 9th of the "Fork in the Road" (or FITR) episodes of the podcast, this is where the Host and Guest veer off from the normal topic of fatherhood to either discuss something of significance in relation to the guest, or the two engage heavily on a common interest they are passionate about. The 2nd of 2 episodes with Kevin Browning, I delayed a little. I blame baseball. I mean that in the best way possible. I faced a conundrum with the timing of these episodes with Kevin and my episodes...

Episode 022 - Kevin Browning

11/29/2016

This is the 1st of 2 episodes with Kevin Browning, aka KB, the manager of the band Umphrey's McGee. Kevin has always really been someone I've wanted to be able to have a lengthy conversation with, as I'm always so impressed with the way he has been able to balance a very busy work life with being a husband and father of three children. I know I often think about how it really is fascinating how many of us match up with someone who, at the very least, share an interest in one another. The...

Episode 021 - Giving Thanks

11/23/2016
More
Here's a little brief episode I created this week. With Thanksgiving coming on Thursday and my birthday happening the following day, it felt like it was time to finally sit down and get some things recorded that have been weighing on my heart for a while now. 2016 has been a unique year, to say the least. I ended up in the hospital E.R. on two different occasions this year, for differing reasons. All of this led to some needed and serious time for introspection on my part. Some of this...

The 8th of the "Fork in the Road" (or FITR) episodes of the podcast, this is where the Host and Guest veer off from the normal topic of fatherhood to either discuss something of significance in relation to the guest, or the two engage heavily on a common interest they are passionate about. In this second episode with Ross Newhan, we focus almost entirely on what he spent his life and career covering as a renowned writer: baseball. Again, for those of you who didn't catch this from his 1st...

Ross Newhan The 1st of 2 episodes with Ross Newhan, we get to take a very introspective look at the life of one of Major League Baseball's best beat writers. For those of you who are not familiar with Ross and his work, here's a little of what you'll be able to hear during these episodes. Ross started writing for Long Beach newspapers before the Angels had even become a team. He eventually started covering the Angels and the Dodgers, before moving on to the Los Angeles Time and eventually...
