CD20 – The Pendulum of Responsibility & Projects with Purpose

Here we go, podcast day!

On this lunchtime podcast recording, I go over the recent surprises that responsibility throws at you, Lucky for us, that work/life pendulum swings just right for us to make the push for creativity. There is time to be fulfilled, there is time for art.

This status report is an overview of what I’m up to, and how I intend to use my upcoming short-form projects to provide avenues for creative collaboration in my community. A bunch of theories on the verge of practical application. Come along!

Much love,

CD19 – An Anecdote about Fatherhood, Handing Down Creativity, and Status Report

You don’t know how much you keep from people until you start speaking clearly and honestly, out in the open. Podcasting is teaching me to reach out and communicate the way I have always wanted to do. Listening back to this episode I recorded prior to the holiday, I saw myself turning a corner.

  • I wanted to share with you the moment I knew I would be an artist, like my dad.
  • I wanted to share with you my thoughts on handing down creativity to our children, like an inheritance.
  • I want to share with you some things I’ve been up to creatively, and what’s around the riverbend (without the Disney Princess song and dance, or maybe there will be a song and dance: I was a theater major, after all…).

This was another breakthrough episode for me and the cats during lunchtime podcasting. I hope you enjoy it.

Much love,

OKA30 – Ocean’s Eleven, Uplifting News Recap, Concert Plans

Hi all!

Here’s a weekday talk about all kinds of stuff:

How about a throwback to the early 2000s chatting about Steven Soderbergh’s superior remake of Ocean’s Eleven. We spoil the hell out of this one, so if you haven’t seen a 20+ year old film, we apologize.

We bring back the uplifting news headline and bring you some well needed joy around these parts!

And raving about a new concert opportunity, can’t wait! Thanks for joining us as we continue our experiment!

Much love,

CD18 – My Creative Streamlining Begins, My Cats, and Acceptance

Thursday Lunch is for Podcasting! What’s working so far!

Some things that are working in my quest to be a better working-class creative, and how I was able to make progress on short-form content. Priorities, priorities, priorities.

Learning to be upfront about where I’m falling short, and seeing results from Bullet Journaling.

And noisy cats that I love so much. Make art, make haste.

The Creative Drive Podcast is back. Let’s go!

Hi folks,

It’s been quite a few months since I’ve been at this solo podcasting thing. Here’s a vibrant moment of clarity about why things don’t pan out, and what the gameplan is moving forward with this creative life of writing and recording. All good things!.

Much love,

OKA28 – Stephen King’s The Institute, This Ukraine Debacle, The Nightmare Before Xmas! (Movie Blurb)

Hi folks!

Just in the nick of time, we got our podcast episode in! Very proud of ourselves, much wow:

Madd could not wait to share some thoughts on Stephen King’s latest, The Institute. She read it like a mad person in record time so let’s hear some critical and emotional reactions!

Just when we thought it couldn’t get more obvious, this Ukraine business gets blown wide open by Bill Taylor’s statement to Congress. Will the Democrats continue to twiddle their thumbs or impeach? Let’s rage together!

Lastly, we wanted to spend a few minutes praising and sharing our love for the one and only holiday classic The Nightmare Before Christmas. Now it’s a family tradition our kid can enjoy with us!

Also, we tried watching the new Star Wars trailer but we refuse to go to Disney jail, so instead of playing it in the background, you will hear us reacting to dead silence. It was wonderful.

Be well, friends.

OKA27 – Casper Spotlight, The Omen Blurb, Uplifting News, Finally!

Wow, hi folks!

Happy to be back as we celebrated Madd’s birthday this weekend!

In honor of the little adventures we had this weekend, we thought to keep things slightly local and chat about Casper and some of the cool things to do this weekend. Casper ain’t so bad! Also, we are in no way, shape or form affiliated with the City of Casper nor its marketing entities. What the hell, can’t I just say something nice about Casper?

Since it’s spooky scary October, we’re doing blurbs and quick shoutouts to our favorite spooky scary films. This time around we babble on and rejoice in the 70s joy of Richard Donner’s The Omen. Catholic guilt, here we go again!

Lastly, a breakthrough! Madd and I find a new way to cover the news! Give it a listen!

Hope you’re well,

J&M
