I swear, the 'Marie' names in this series are coincidental only, and not some sort of cheap gimmick... dot com! Can one night change your life, even if you aren't a part of it? My interview with Sydney Marie, is one I'm very happy to have to bring to all the listeners. I'm super proud of her and I am excited for her story to be heard.

Episode 0000019: Eric Charles Villeneuve Part I

Not for the faint of heart or ears, this solo interview with Eric V. (I mean, without his wife) has definitely got a good story in here somewhere, but reads like a random thought blog on the life and times of Eric Villeneuve, the man behind his ECV Photography business. Eric discusses more of his family drama and dynamics in this 1st of 2 part episode, it was so much that we couldn't contain it all in just one.
