episode 21 – motherhood, nursing, harry potter & throwing up on my front lawn – a conversation with carrie mask

12715799_10209138228598292_3541060653686235659_n

this was a fun one. i’ve known carrie for 8 or 9 years & this is by far the longest, one on one conversation we’ve ever had. we’ve hung out plenty of times but usually it’s in a group setting. it was cool to spend an hour really talking. in this episode we cover everything from harry potter to assisting in surgery to my minor faux at her wedding (also known as my 40th birthday).

fun fact. this episode holds the record for the least amount of editing needed. carrie is good at podcasting.

big thanks to carrie for hanging out.

episode 20 – a growler of beer, 2 fingers of scotch, alkaline trio & tending bar – a conversation with larry foor

larry foor being on our podcast was a result of a happy accident. after an afternoon of sunday drinking we mistakenly hugged him thinking he was our buddy john fortson (from episode 6). long story short, a few weeks later he was sitting in our guest seat & we drank some of his freshly brewed beer from cask & larder. in this episode we talk about a mutual love of alkaline trio, the pros & cons of “working for the man” & of course, we talk about beer.

big thanks to larry for hanging out & the beer.

episode 19 – wine, small town living, the 3am friend & god – a conversation with dana madich-meyer

dana

so, sometimes you go to school with someone from seventh grade, all the way through high school & then you lose touch with them. thirty years later you find out they’ve live in the same town as you. what do you do? answer, you ask them to be on your podcast & find out what they’ve been up to. its been a long time since we talked to dana. she’s pretty much the same, funny, beautiful, bubbly & always smiling. in this episode we cover growing up in a small town, travel, religion, friendships & a whole bunch more.

big thanks to dana for hanging out with us.
