There's nothing like kicking off a new season with some great advice. And Jolie certainly provided us with valuable information. With all of these changing times, maybe some of us are looking for a change, and possibly a change in our careers. So have a listen to Jolie's podcast, and you just might be on your way to that career change you've always wanted. As i mentioned in the onset, it was fun for me to "interview...

No, i said cleanup, not prenup! I can't do a prenup without Dirty Louie present! So, it's been an interesting season, wouldn't you say? I got to learn new things, expand my musical horizons, and get to spend time with a bunch of great people. Truly the joys of podcasting. (Except when my mic isn't working. Then it becomes a hostage situation.) Don't forget, if you'd like to come on the show for an interview,...

What a perfectly timed interview to wind up as my Season 6 finale, Rebels. And what a great guest Frank is,too. He really appreciated coming on this podcast to promote his show, "An Evening with Groucho". If you're not near anywhere that Frank is performing, fear not, The show will air on your local PBS station in the spring of 2022. And don't worry, this episode will be rebroadcast, to remind you. We all need remin...

This episode, I feel, truly represents a labor of love. Oh, not for me, I'm talking about my guest, Mark Stancil, of Terminus Media! My true labor of love is transforming my belly button lint back into the original sweater from whence it came.But, back to Mark. He's a guy who, along with others, created new comics and graphic novels from the things that inspire him.I strongly suggest checking out his website for a gander of...

This was a fun one, Rebels. Not to humble-brag (too late!) , but it's such an honor that both radio guys who have been on my show had really nice things to say about this podcast Maybe I'm doing something right, finally? Or Dirty Louie is paying my guests well, out of the Sherpa Slush Fund (Financial disclosure: $14.38). Steven was a great guest and we talked about SO much in such a short time. AND even discussed cooking Sp...

Oh, the trials and tribulations of being a podcaster! True Story: I had decided earlier in the season that I wanted to do an episode about the universe. I saw a few astrophysicists listed on podcasting sites. Sent out invitations. No response (Were they lost in space? *rim shot*) I was just about to give up, when I found out about Dr. Sutter's podcast. I contacted him through his website (below) and bang! (Not a Big Bang, of co...

SML ( So much laughing) episode?Okay, let's go to the checklist: Excessive laughing? Check. Slightly loud microphone? Check. A funny guest? Double check! Mark has lots of fun stories to tell in this episode, along with some interesting insights, too. Even though neither of us is really waiting for the Daddy Dewdrop reunion tour. But have a listen, and check out his podcast, too. Thanks for swinging by, Mark! (And apologies to t...

You know, I actually SAY, "You sound like you're in a hole!" in this interview.  For this episode Rebels, sadly, I do. But it's not too deep a hole, I promise. But what an interesting guest Anthony was. In a still relatively young life, he's experienced more highs and lows than most people, myself included. AND he still steals his kids' Halloween candy! A man after my own heart. Or my Snickers bar...one or t...

Another episode in my never-ending pursuit to bring all music to the masses! Or something like that. You can just tell how much fun it was to talk to Aubrey. Before our interview, I had commented to her that she sent me down a rabbit hole, because I'd never known of many female jazz trombonists. Well, let me tell you Rebels, there are plenty, and, as Aubrey explained, "And, we all know each other!" You gotta love speaki...

I hope that when you, dear listeners, hear interviews, like today's chat with Michael, keep in mind that there is always hope even when things may seem to be at their most dire or bleak.  It's certainly not the easiest thing to focus on in hard times, but trust me, it's there. Just have a listen to Michael's show, and that idea is confirmed.Plus, he brings a level of empathy and relatability, through the events in h...

After over 140 episodes, I'm surprised that I haven't spoken to to more podcasters with radio backgrounds, with of course, the exception being the brilliant Mr. Bruce (or Uncle Bruce, if you're listening to our "Too Many 80's Songs" mini-podcast on Spotify....and why aren't you?? Either way, the check is in the mail.) But Big Skinny definitely has that classic country music radio voice. Certainly not one...

In a lot of my episodes up to this point, I've spoken to people who've had their time in the spotlight. ( Not me, Rebels, I sunburn too easily).They've all gone down separate roads since that time. Today, you'll get to hear Deborah's story, which is also a reflection on the highs and lows of her life. Whether she was in or out of the spotlight, you can tell that she put the work in to be successful, from a young...

The Bee Gees, you say? Yep. I think it's pretty cool how David uses his passion as a superfan and reaches out to other superfans with a great podcast. ( Listen on Spotify, and hear their music along with the show.) Some of you might not be aware of their whole catalogue. They're just not the artists who did that "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack (one of the highest selling movie soundtracks ever)? Well then, you'...

Now, Rebels, you just KNOW that a guy who went from an engineer in Great Britain to a teacher in Brazil to a relationship coach in Los Angeles has got an interesting tale to tell. And luckily, on today's episode, you get to hear that story. (And if you didn't, talk about a waste of a show notes intro. ) I've gotten to talk to a lot of folks who can help with relationships, and they all come from interesting perspectives...

This may come as a bit of a shock to you, Rebels,but Carmelle told me before our interview that she really doesn't do many podcast interviews. Now you're probably thinking, "Whaaaaaaaat??!!" Here's a lady who is an ideal podcast guest. She's got interesting stories about her fitness journey. She's highly knowledgeable in her field. She paints an honest picture for her clients with their expectations, and...

What impresses me so much about a guy like Wize (a Wize guy? No...nevermind.)is how driven that he is as a podcaster. He wants his voice to have a place in your audio/visual media. And I can see that happening. Hey, if I'm able to bring my humor to a podcast, anything is possible, right? But anyway, check out "Stuck In My Mind". I'm sure you'll enjoy it And thanks, Wize for coming on the show!

Wize's info: P...

What a pleasure this interview was, Rebels! I've been fortunate to interview a few former child stars, but Jill really made it her mission to be involved with entertainment, one way or the other. And as you'll hear in the interview, so much of her life has come full circle. I thought it was so cool that she still referred to Gavin MacLeod as "my tv dad". (Trivia fun fact-Only Jill and Helen Hunt can say that about h...

This was an episode that came out of the blue. I was contacted through a website by Renee, who said she'd like to come on the show to talk about competitive pole dancing. So, naturally, knowing absolutely nothing about this, I said, "Of course!" (Which is how i got into college. And became a superhero.)To hear Renee explain it, this is more about body positivity than the stigma that is is attached to it. I think your pe...

I'm not sure who's having more fun on the magician episodes; the magician or me? Once again, I was amazed by a great card trick, that you can witness on my social media pages @sherpalution. Jake is a talented young performer who will certainly go far. Maybe one day he and previous guest, magician Anthony Presciutti can do a double magic bill. I can offer to warm up the crowd with my comedy stylings. If I actually had an...

I know. This isn't the sort of title you'd normally expect from an episode of Too Many Podcasts! Nor the interview that you will hear in this episode. But, imagine yourself in the place of my guest, David Ogman, for a moment. You have a young son with a rare, fatal genetic disease and you want to do all that you can to raise money for gene therapy and research to battle this disease. All during a horrific pandemic . Not exa...

  • If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
