My conversation with David strongly reinforces the advice that we've gotten here from so many actors. Remember all those "W's", aspiring actors! (And it's only "woohoo" when you get the part, by the way! Have a listen! Thanks, David, for coming on the show!

So, every time I have a podcaster on, I always ask them for podcast recommendations. But I realize it's been a while since I got to talk about some of my faves. So, I present to you, Rebels of the Sherpalution, the Sherpa Podcast Playlist! Next week, I'll be back with a guest! (Unless this episode scares them away???)

The Sherpa's Faves:

  1. The Newsworthy
  2. Money Rehab
  3. Be Wealthy and Smart
  4. The Clark Howard Show

Another guest from the Wisdom app, you say? Yesiree, Bob! (Although I don't know who Bob is, but I know he's not my uncle, you there in the U.K.) This interview was borne from an absolutely fascinating conversation on the Wisdom app (which you can participate or listen in on),which we got to continue here. Andrew's podcast is a straightforward, honest, analysis of manhood, and what it truly entails in regard to relation...

Here's a guy who started with local interviews, which grew into a larger show with even more well-known folks. (My show only becomes larger by eating more and standing on its toes.) And this is the episode that features...nutmeg! I don't even think Joe Rogan or "This American Life" does that. Maybe Ben Shapiro can talk about it with that unnatural sped-up voice? One can only dream, Rebels! Um, I think I've gon...

Even though it initially made a semi-splash, doing "Too Many 80's Songs" was so much fun for me ,being such an 80's music fan. And now I get to try it again!. Just download the Amp app, and look for @podcastsherpa. I'll be playing as many of your 80's requests as I can, and you'll be able to chat with me and the other listeners. A wonderful time will be had by all. That's an order, Rebels! Listen a...

So here's a treat for you, Rebels! A few years back, I did a little side project called "The Expert Factory", where I had folks come on to give advice. (Which explains why you don't hear too much of me on this episode!) If you've been a listener for a while, you'll know that Allison has always been one of my favorite people in Podcastia. She was my first interview, and the guest in my 20th episode, too, so...

It's under 20 minutes today! Since I could not get either of my "hoped for" interviews recorded in enough time, I figured it was time for a mini-episode. So, it's about what's going on in the Sherpa Chalet, and of course, with "Sherpa Samples." Have a listen!!

These are the podcasts featured in "Sherpa Samples"

  1. The Ezra Klein Show
  2. PBD Podcast
  3. I Beg Your Pardon?
  4. Blank Check with Gri...

Multi-talented AND multi-instrumental! In the short time that we had our interview, you can really tell how much Lisa Marie cares about her craft, and how much she does to follow her vision, whether it be audio or video. But I think we need to hold a recruiting fair to help her find more women musicians to collaborate with. (I would gladly help, but it appears the Lovely Sherpa Bride has me handcuffed to Mr. Fluffy (the mountain li...

Warning: Some strong language. (Does that make us heathens? Eh, probably not...) This was a great opportunity to get to hear an actual story of belonging to a religious cult, and the ladies were just incredible guests. (Super nice, too!) It's interesting when you're a teenager and you wonder what your life will be like 30-40 years from that point. I'm sure Tracey and Sharon wouldn't have imagined doing their podcast...

(*Bit of Strong Language in this one. Surprised? Didn't think so...) So, Jesse texted me (yes, he has my number!) ,saying, "I have a podcast, give me publicity!" Done, my friend! I had so much fun with him on our first interview (but The Cranberries still might be a bit sore...) ,so I could only imagine what his podcast is like. And to all of you who love geek culture, I say, " Highly recommended!" (Again, s...

Show of hands! Who wants to go away on a trip? (No, not with me, don't worry. Besides, you're raising your hand for an audio medium?) You know how I love educational and entertaining interviews, and this one doesn't disappoint. Jared's website is truly a labor of love that can end up saving you some big buckaroos (money, not cowboys). And you'll learn in this interview the best way to plan out an affordable trip...

Well, Rebels, it's time for the mini-episode where I get to give thanks to all of those who made this season what it was. (What was it? Honestly, no idea.) If you're new to the show, simply subscribe to check out what you've missed. Our episodes are all over the place (See below). I've really got to clean up the Sherpa Chalet! Until then, we'll see you next week, for the Season 11 premiere!

(Since this interview is about true crime, there are mentions of violence. Please take care when listening, if this is an emotional trigger.) Wow! What a way to wrap up season 10! Robert's email saying he wanted to do the interview came just at the nick of time. Otherwise, you'd hear me rambling on about my favorite toenails. Robert has won over 50 awards for journalism, and has witnessed some truly historic events first-ha...

Yep Rebels, another quick episode for ya. Stay fir the "Sherpa Samples", leave with a cannoli. Or something like that. In addition to mentioning the websites an apps I mentioned aren't sponsors of the show, and are just recommendations by my experience, I also forgot to apologize for some of the clicking sounds on my edit...ugh! But that's not the fault of what I'm using. (This one sounds nice, right? right??)...

There are SOOOOO many different kinds of healthcare professionals out there that deserve this kind of praise (and from a better podcast,too!) Fortunately , I was able to chat with Tonia, who provided a lot of insight into the nursing field. Please have a listen to her story, and about the amazing charity that she has in the works. While you're doing that, I'll be visiting South Brooklyn to check the authenticity of their ac...

So, how cool is Bennett? Keeping audiences ( and me, in this interview) laughing and entertained, Keeping Woody Allen off the toilet, and keeping a million dollars from John Hughes! I'm lucky if I can keep an imaginary secret. (I heard it from Homer Simpson himself. I think..) This was a fun one to do, unfortunately during a writer's strike, but what are ya gonna do, as they say? But have a listen to his tales of getting "Dumb and ...

As you can tell, with a guest like Don, interviews are super easy, as he's always got a great story to tell, about a wide array of topics, too! Unfortunately, I couldn't get to the link in which i appeared on his show, "The Life", but trust me, given my level of comedic talent, it's best that you're protected, like Don does with weapons! The guy seriously has sooo much talent , so whether it's a comedy...
