Adult Education

As we get older our interest in learning seems to wane. Life gets in the way and educating ourselves becomes less important. My name is Jeff St. Pierre and I fell into that trap. Now I'm craving information. Join me for Adult Education, a podcast that aims to bring conversations with experts in all different fields so we can learn a little something new.

I'm excited to share today's episode with author Emily Ballesteros. She's published a book about burnout called 'The Cure For Burnout: How To Find Balance And Reclaim Your Life.'

For some reason people tend to wear their stress, business and burnout like a badge of honor. But why? Why do we feel more special because we're burnt out? Emily Ballesteros has spent the last few years studying the subject of burnout. She's basicall...

Such a pleasure to have the return of Lisa Gardner to the Adult Education Podcast. I've fallen in love with her latest character, Frankie Elkin, and her series of books. The first one came out in 2021, and was followed up in 2022 with book two. But then 2023 came and went without a new book. I started to get worried that the Frankie series may be over and done with.

Turns out, it almost was. In fact, Lisa almost stepped away fr...

Today's guest is the amazingly talented Hannah Ellis. I first met her a couple of years ago and was immediately impressed with her poise and attitude. Her music is a true reflection of who she is. Fast forward to 2024 and she dropped her debut album titled 'That Girl.' It's definitely a contender for album of the year in my opinion. There are so many layers to this record and so and a lot of passion. It was a real pleasure to...

Nichole is a dietician and nutritionist that specializes in plant-based nutrition. She's been plant-based herself for about a decade and has seen the positive impact that it can have...

I've been trying to get Dana Bollen on the show for about a year now. If you're not familiar with @danafuggenb then I'm happy to make the introduction.

Dana is the tour manager and cowbell player for one of my favorite bands, Piebald. He's also on the road a lot doing merch for many other artists, and he hosts the 'Two Week Notice' podcast.

I've fallen in love with his podcast. Dana invites guests from the punk/emo/hardcore scen...

My guest this week is psychologist Dr. Mariel Buque. We're discussing intergenerational trauma. No, this isn't the trauma you feel when your parents ask you when you're going to give them a grandbaby. We're talking about things a little bit deeper than that.

Honestly, I'd never heard the term intergenerational trauma before. It was a pleasure to speak with Dr. Buque and learn more about her work. She has a new book called 'Brea...

Welcome to 2024. We're kicking off the year with a conversation with Dr. Michael Greger.

He's the author of many books, most notably his book 'How Not To Die.' I've seen this book on so many reading lists, and I've seen Dr. Greger's name in the credits of so many books. He's definitely someone that the health community keeps tabs on.

Dr. Greger recently published his latest book titled 'How Not To Age: The Scientific Approach to Ge...

I'm so excited for this conversation with Rob Harvilla. he's the host of my favorite podcast, '60 Songs That Explain The 90's'. I have looked forward to Wednesday's for the last three years simply because that's when new episodes come out. Looking up the latest episode is the first thing I do when I wake up on Wednesday morning.

Rob is getting ready to wrap up the series with his 120th episode coming in a few weeks. Now he's t...

My guest this week is Alex Hall. He's a rising star in country music, but don't let that fool you. This didn't happen overnight. Alex first started playing shows around age 14 and at one point was playing over 100 shows a year during high school. He's been working very hard to get to this point where he just released his debut album, 'Side Effects Of The Heart.'

It was a pleasure catching up with Alex and learning more about his...

This week I get the pleasure of chatting with an old friend. Morgan Evans is my guest. I've been lucky enough to see Morgan live many times over the last 6 or so years and we've developed a bit of a relationship. I'm not just a fan of his music, I'm also a fan of him as a human.

So, it was great to catch up with him for this week's episode. We primarily talk about what it's like to be an international artist and how it feels to ...

Joining me today is the CEO and Founder of 'Deeper Than Money,' Chloe Elise. I always struggle with conversations about money. It's such a personal conversation that can lead to some awkward interactions. But, I came across Chloe's new book and knew we had to connect. The book is called 'Deeper Than Money: Ditch Money Shame, Build Wealth and Feel Confident AF.'

The key word for me is 'Shame.' We always feel such shame when it ...

I had a chance to catch up with country artist Chris Lane for this week's episode. Chris was sitting on top of the country charts before the pandemic took hold of the world. Like so many other artists, the shut downs really slowed down his momentum.

Between that, getting married, having kids and some label issues, Chris decided to take a step back for a time to reevaluate his situation and what he wanted from his career.

Chris is...

This week I'm joined by Fandango managing editor Erik Davis. It's always fun to chat with someone who loves movies more than I do. I have so many fond memories of being at the theater with family and friends. I got to nerd out a little bit with Erik.

But I really wanted to talk to him because I wanted to discuss how the box office is doing. The movie theater industry has certainly had a few big hits in the post-pandemic era, but...

I'm joined by director and producer Monica Medellin. She's the brain behind Amazon Prime Video's new series 'Surf Girls Hawaii.' I've been fascinated by this show and have already watched it twice all the way through.

I've always had this rabid interest in surfing, despite the fact that I've never done it before. I went into Surf Girls Hawaii expecting to love the surfing and action of the sport. That was great, but I found th...

Joining me today is singer/songwriter Leah Marie Mason. I was first introduced to her through seeing her work with Jason and Nelly Reeves. They're two of my favorite artists, so I figured I'd love Leah. I was right. Her music is so special to me on many different levels. Most of which I can't put into words.

Her latest release is a song called 'Black Sheep.' It takes a look back at her time in high school. It was a tough ti...

Today's guest is illustrator and artist Nathan Pyle. I was first introduced to him through an Instagram post that was shared with me. It showed some real life pigeons walking around on the street, but Nathan had added captions and stickers to it to create a story. I don't remember exactly what was happening but I remember loving it. I followed him on Instagram and my life was forever changed.

Nathan Pyle is the creator of the w...

This is a repost of an earlier episode that I shared in November of 2020. I've always thought it deserved a second chance at being heard since I posted it on the same day as the 2020 US presidential election. And we all know how that went. I hope you enjoy my conversation with Maria Ahlin. Below are the original show notes.

If I'm being honest, I never thought I'd be talking about porn in one of my podcasts. But here we are.

I met Tyler Rich back in 2019. Have you ever had one of those moments where you meet someone and you feel this instant connection with them? That's how I felt about Tyler. We had a connection over our love of Huskies, our histories in rock music and our love of music in general. Since that meeting we've stayed in touch through social media. But I've always wanted to get him on the show.

Thankfully I was finally able to make i...

Today I'm pleased to be joined by American Idol's HunterGirl. I'll admit that I didn't watch any of Season 20, where she was the runner up. But I've become a fan since learning more about her. Hunter has a killer voice and an incredible personality and stage presence. I have a feeling we'll all be hearing about her for many years to come.

In our conversation we talk about where HunterGirl came from, both the name and the person,...
