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.

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,...

This week I'm discussing work culture with journalist and author Simone Stolzoff.

It seems like work has gotten out of control. People introduce themselves at dinner parties with their job title, working long hours and having stress is a badge of honor to people and we're expected to drop everything when our boss calls.

If you think it all sounds toxic, you're right. Yet, we all continue to operate this week. We are letting work t...

This week I'm joined by the founder of running apparel company Outrun The Dark, Siggy.

When I started becoming an active runner I used it to escape some of the hard times I was having in my personal life. Once my feet hit the pavement, or treadmill, I was lifted out of the darkness that was going on and I focused solely on my run and progress. I didn't realize at the time how many other people used running to outrun their own de...

I'm so pleased this week to be able to speak with astrophysicist Sarafina El-Badry Nance. I went to Villanova University as an Astronomy and Astrophysics major. I spent my first semester in the major before deciding that the path was not what I saw as my future.

Despite choosing another avenue in life, I still have a fascination with the world above our heads, and I have so much appreciation for those who dedicate their lives to f...

This conversation is some 20 years in the making. I've been such a fan of The Dollyrots over the years but have never had the chance to see or speak with them. I was so excited to finally have a chance to sit down and talk with Kelly Ogden.

In this conversation we discuss a lot, but the topics include the band's new music, Kelly's time as a radio DJ and what life is like on the road now that there are kids in the family.

I hope you...

This week we are entering into the letter D. There was only one possible album to discuss here and that's 'Around The Fur' by The Deftones. This one spent years in my car and was in constant rotation. Even now I still find myself jamming out to these songs.

In this episode I discuss the album as well as some of my favorite concert experiences featuring artists like Snapcase, Taylor Swift, Something Corporate, Mest and more!

My guest today is podcast host Joanne McNeil. I recently came across her show, 'Main Accounts: The Story Of MySpace.' I've been absolutely hooked and I anxiously await every new episode of the show.

I reached out because I wanted to learn more about Joanne's background studying social media, and to take a deeper dive into some of the topics brought up in her show.

I hope you enjoy our conversation. Please check out her podcast. I...

This week I'm joined by rising country star Erin Kinsey. For my money she's one of the best young voices coming out of Nashville. I had a chance to meet her about a year ago and since then I've wanted to share her story with everyone.

In this conversation we discuss her love of music and decision to pursue it full time, her move to Nashville at just 17 years old and what it's like as an artist to try to keep up with the digital wo...

As we get into the letter C, I dive into Cave In's legendary album 'Until Your Heart Stops'. This album has had such a major impact on me and my love of music. It changed the trajectory for the genre and may have even created a new genre. To this day Cave In are still one of the most revered artists in heavy music, and 'Until Your Heart Stops' is a big reason why.

I'm a dad now. I can't tell you how many times I've told my 2-year-old that she needs to eat her vegetables. I think it's a phrase that automatically enters your vocabulary once you become a parent.

But it's true. You need to eat your vegetables. There are so many important vitamins and nutrients that come from vegetables. They benefit our health in so many different ways. Yet we always seem to forget them.

Episode two of my Visor Library project takes us back to the 60's with the classic Beach Boys album 'Pet Sounds.'

When you're a teenager, old stuff isn't cool. You always want to have the newest and shiniest of things. Loving The Beach Boys didn't do me any favors when it came to popularity. But I've always loved 'Pet Sounds.' It's an album that spent a significant amount of time in my visor organizer. That's the album I'm tal...

I've been lucky enough to develop a relationship with author Sarah Knight. She's behind the mega-popular No Fucks Given Guides, which include books like 'The Life Changing Magic Of Not Giving A Fuck' and 'Get Your Shit Together'. She's now on to her 6th full length book in the series titled 'Grow The Fuck Up: How To Be An Adult And Get Treated Like One.'

This book takes the reader on a slightly different ride than her previous wor...

You know the old phrase, 'You need to stop and smell the roses.' That's the basis for today's conversation. We get so wrapped up in our lives that we forget about those beautiful little things that surround us.

Cyndie Spiegel is the author of the book 'Microjoys: Finding Hope (Especially) When Life Is Not Ok.' She's gone through a lot since the start of the pandemic from deaths to cancer diagnoses. There was a year long span t...

Investigative journalist and author Alexandra Robbins joins me this week to discuss her new book, 'The Teachers: A Year Inside America's Most Vulnerable, Important Profession.' This conversation hits close to home for me because my mother was a teacher and my wife is a teacher. I've been surrounded by them my whole life, and some of the people who shaped my career were teachers. I hate to see what politicians and impressionable ...
