Meet My Good Friend

This is a podcast where I interview random people that I meet to prove that everyone has a story to tell. It's StoryCorps + Humans of New York, I guess. So far I've met an IT guy, a jewelery merchandiser, a crazy conspiracy theorist, a hippie chick, a hairdresser, an astronomer, a stand-up comedian, and a traveling insurance adjuster. Who will I meet next?

I met Megan over a shot of Fireball, and that decision colored the rest of our conversation. There are plenty of laughs in this talk that goes from pet moose to Drew Carey and makes a stop at a basketball game between 2 beer glasses and 2 shot glasses. We also make a wildly inaccurate prediction about the weekend's Ohio State Buckeyes game.

So, take a shot of Fireball and learn about Yellowstone Park and sports journalism with my good friend Megan.

My good friend Estlin is a super interesting dude. He’s a big Bernie Sanders supporter and I met him after a Bernie rally in downtown Cleveland, but, unlike most Bernie fans, Estlin isn’t old enough to vote. At 14 years old he knows more about politics than I do about anything but 90s pop music.

We talk about the day of the event (from his mom picking him up after school to him hanging out at 11pm chatting to a stranger at a Mexican restaurant), what went down inside the rally, his Bernie handshake-hug, and the time he met President Obama.

Other highlights include:

  • You can take a selfie and not actually be in the photo.
  • Playing Halo can help you get into college.
  • e.e. cummings real name is…
  • Income inequality is whack.
  • Hey Monea!
  • 53+ Facebook likes.

Feel the Bern and get schooled by my good friend Estlin.

Marlene just passed the bar exam and will officially be an unemployed lawyer after her swearing-in ceremony in Columbus! Way to go Marlene! She sat down with me to talk about law school and what it takes to become a lawyer. We go over all sorts of lawyerly things like LSATs and a bunch of other law test acronyms.

Learn about Marlene’s move from Georgia to Ohio (and back to Georgia then back to Ohio again), her trip to Spain, her long distance engagement, and her two cats. Nothing Marlene or I say in this episode should be considered legal advice (she has to say that because she’s a lawyer and I want to say that to sound important).

If any listeners in the Cleveland area are looking to hire a brand new lawyer, let me know and I’ll get you in touch with Marlene. Really. She’s has Law School Debt and got into law in order to help the less fortunate. That’s enough right there, isn’t it? Please meet my good friend Marlene (and hire her)!

My good friend Chuck is an elevator troubleshooter from Denver, Colorado. You will learn tons about elevators and elevator repair. Most importantly you will learn that elevators are interesting enough to talk about for a half hour. Seriously!

Well, it’s not just elevator talk the whole time. We talk about Iceland, marijuana, welding, skiing, and Chucks history of being a knucklehead.

Meet my good friend Chuck the elevator guy!
