The President of the Village of Deforest, Wisconsin (that's the Mayor, for all you southern folks), musician, sales manager, and dad. I spend some time with Judd Blau talking about modern politics, The United fiasco, country music, playing in bands, Taste of Madison, and most importantly, his son Justin whipping cancer's ass. Enjoy!
Intro from John Faye/ IKE
As my school launches it's Inaugural Orange and Black Give Back Day of Giving on May 3, I reflect on how Mercer is a part of my identity, what hapened to make this so, and why it's important to support where we came from. Bear Down!
My good friend Jeremy Lopez, or The Podfather as I like to call him, joins me for Episode 4. The man that got me started down the podcasting road and I reflect on: podcasting, why we love it, how easy it is to get started, passive aggressive behavior, how I think I'm a coward, our favorite movies and directors, and much more. Enjoy!

My dear friend and supremely talented musician Scott Little. We'll discuss gearheads, Sun Studio, John Mayer, smoking weed with Willie Nelson and Tone Loc, songwriting, how bands are like cooking but not baking, the state of country music today, our Mamas, and a whole lot more. The intro and outro music is the song Boots, Bottle, and a Bible from the Scott Little Band's forthcoming album Wine, Women, and Song. Enjoy!
Podcast. I'm doing one. It's more than just free time. There are reasons. I hope those reasons resonate. But even if they don't, I now have recordings of me talking! So... WINNING! This episode is about that why, and what I hope to accomplish. Hope you enjoy!
