Coffee Fueled Stories with Michelle Schmer

Positive Change Award Winner in Society and Culture as CoffeeFitnessUnicorn!! Welcome to my Virtual Coffee Spot(c). I'm your pocket DJ and this podcast is where storytelling and coffee hang out. As a super-survivor I have turned my trauma and grief into a powerful, creative force for good. And I learned, it's never too late to start a podcast—at 51. This show is where I can share my stories and connect with you. Each episode is both informative and entertaining. Thank you for listening and sharing this journey with me. Go Forth And Be Magical.

Meet Helen Aitchison, author of The Dinner Club and Life and Love (Attempts) of Kitty Cook.
When Helen isn't helping others, she can be found snuggling her adorable rescue cat, Eric. Helen gives much of herself in service of others and I am grateful she took the time to chat to end season 3 on a high note.

She is an absolute treasure, go get to know her and check out her books.

Meet Horror creator and filmmaker Richard T. Wilson. We had a great chat about how filmmaking is like rock and roll and learn why he describes candy corn as the "flipping off candy." I'd say that makes him very punk rock \m/ 🤘. 

We spoke about how journaling is cathartic and how it's more than doodling. We get a little deep, but also chat about Blobfest, spiders, and the Wolfman.

When Radio UNK first came to mind, I wanted to to have a show where I could share new artists and play their songs on the air. That was hard to do with my first podcast hosting service.

I switched hosting sites and got better at editing; I found an old friend who made some amazing music: RavenF/Brutal Bastion and met a new friend who created the outro song: Jeff Hans: Let's Get Amped⚡️
