Podcast #32 - Barely There (From the Mountain) Podcast

From the vacation files. Wrote this one camping in Colorado and recorded it in the shadow of Pike's Peak. Had to huddle in the back seat of Pete's truck with my iPad so as not to wake anyone while recording. The trip was wonderful. Got to see my sister and family in New Mexico then on to Grand Junction to hang out with my friend and former writing partner Reza Kaleel, and his wife Shawn. They… Read more

Podcast #28 - I Surrender Podcast

I was in a mood. Just really, really had enough of the ridiculous arguments and justifications for treating every other human being as an enemy.
