I can certainly say that after well over 200 episodes, I've never heard a life story even similar to that of Dylan's. But I guess he does put that uniqueness into whatever he does, or wants to do. As you'll hear in this interview, he clearly didn't hold back in talking about himself, and the demons he's faced. We all have our demons, and unfortunately, mine all look like HR Pufnstuf. (Just ask your parents. Or g...

Some call Aaron Publicist Extraordinaire Steve Joiner's right hand. If I was someone's right hand, I'd probably get punched a lot with it. I enjoyed Aaron's stories of reviewing DVD's. Imagine that being your job! For me, that would be the closest I'd get to "Mystery Science Theatre 3000". And yet, some of the movies Aaron watched could have probably been on that show!  But, have a listen to the inte...

Humble, Rebels. That's the word that comes to mind when I spoke with Christy. Not only did she serve her country for many years, and rise in the ranks while doing so, but she was also able to pursue her love of acting and directing afterward. Clearly, the lady gets the meaning of the word "leadership". She doesn't limit herself to one genre, either, as a peek at her IMDB page https://www.imdb.com/name/nm7663869/  wi...

Ahh, fathers and sons! I find it so cool that Dax and Kai have a strong bond over their love of horror movies, which ultimately led to his podcast. The scariest thing I  ever did with my dad was "get the screwdriver". And we all know what mayhem THAT will lead to! But that actually gives me an idea for a horror movie when I get to speak to another movie director. You can just hear the enjoyment in their voices when they tal...

Yes, Rebels, Season 9 will start next week. But first a look back on the past season. Thanks to all who had a hand in this season, and especially to you, the listener! If you're listening on Spotify, please take a minute to answer some questions. Nothing personal. (At least that's what I was told at gunpoint.)

    Back when I was a wee Sherpa, news anchor Walter Cronkite was considered "the most trusted man in America". Around jellybeans might have been a different story, but I digress. Sometimes, I wonder if ,in this day and age, the evening news could be a source of that trust again. I must say that in speaking to Jennifer, you can most definitely hear the dedication to her profession in her responses to my questions. Maybe those w...

    I really should have known better here, Rebels. Interviewing guys on a unique podcast gave me a unique interview. Who knew I'd end up talking about sleep disorders?? But Jeff and Nick had interesting tales to tell about both their friendship and the podcast. Unfortunately, Adam, the third host, was unable to attend , due to a SpaceX launch. ( I don't know, it was written on a cocktail napkin.) But these guys with a Criminal...

    So, if you were listening to this show on July 23, 2020 (and why weren't you?), you heard one of my "Faces to Watch" episodes, featuring Dale. And as we noted in this show, what a difference a year makes! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Dale's show, "The Joneses" will be picked up by a streaming network. The guy has certainly kept himself occupied with even bigger projects than a short film a month. ...

    Interesting coincidence- Pete has interviewed drummer Stewart Copeland, and a week later, I hear an interview with Tim Ferriss, and who else? Stewart Copeland! What can we conclude from this, Rebels? Stewart Copeland is clearly avoiding me. But that has little bearing on today's episode. Pete has definitely spent time with greats, near-greats, and people who will leave you in wide-eyed wonder. And he gets their stories out with...

    So, exactly how do you go from a middle school coach to an actor , writer, and director? Just listen to John's story and learn one way to do it.  He's smart enough to know if there isn't a role out there for him, he can always create one. Kind of how I do my taxes. (Wait, did I just type that)? Jihn falls into that category of people that you want to root for. With all that talent, I'm sure we'll be seeing great...

    Jealous, Rebels! I had to tell Will and Karen before our interview how jealous I am of the audio on their podcast. So, they just laughed at me and phoned one of their previous guests to cast a spell on me.And now, I have a tail. I mean, again, I have another tail. Do you realize how difficult this makes buying shorts? But I digress. Not only were these two smart and fun, they could easily grace the cover of a magazine. (I didn'...

    (WARNING: A little bit of profanity in this episode...) You know, sometimes it seems like it's open season on comics after "that slapping incident" we've all seen. Which incidentally, will be the LAST time I attempt to help a 95 year-old at Walmart. ( I honestly thought she wanted to test out that skateboard, what can I say?) But Daniel soldiers on, nonetheless, with a catcher's mask if necessary. He shares with...

    Lately, I've been stumbling across guests who found a new course a bit later in life. (Well, I'd be stumbling anyway.) Travis fits that bill, being dared to attend an acting class, and subsequently getting bitten by the acting bug while in his 30s. All while being a race car driver, too! I think it's safe to say not much scares him. Unlike me, with broccoli casserole. I loved the fact that he's worked with previous ...

    Allison was lots of fun to spend time with. I think she's the first transgender guest I've had on the show. She was telling me before our interview that electrolysis is NOT fun. If I needed to do that, they'd have to break out the electric chair in the back room of The Sherpa Chalet for a halfway decent job. You can tell that she's a huge fan of horror and suspense, and it's interesting how she incorporates her ...

    You Rebels know how much I love it when I get to learn new things. And, such was the case with interviewing John. Personally, I've never been hypnotized. But if it was, would I be persuaded to sound talented and professional? I'm guessing probably not. Sorry. John's journey has been interesting, from New Jersey to Utah, to all around the world, to a YouTube channel (see link below) where he helps you to relax. He actual...

    Today, we get a peek into the life of a traveling comic, who's been doing it for years. We also discuss kung fu, and what happens when you've got too many cats in your house. What does this have to do with comedy, you might ask? Um, I'm not exactly sure, but I hope Keith can explain. And if not, well, draw your own conclusions. But just not with that many cats in the house. Anyway, thanks for coming on the show, Keith!

    Esther may be in her 60's, but she doesn't look it at all. Unlike me, who is 145. But she doesn't think like someone in her 60's. A situation during the pandemic presented itself, and poof! This Canadian entrepreneur was off to the races, um, the podcast. To be honest, I actually had a bad experience with an influencer, which really left a bad taste in my mouth about putting them on this show. But if they're lik...

    Prior to Paul and I having this interview, he asked if I wanted to come on his show. But I'm not a good fit. I thought he meant his show about superheroes. Actually, the only superhero comics I remember watching on TV were "The Mighty Heroes" (Look that one up, ya animation nerds. Diaper Man rules!) But what a fun guest he was. And we share a love of the tv show "Heroes" ( no Diaper Man there, sorry) It's in...

    It's always fun when I have two guests on at once. It's also unique for me when I get to tell said guests, "Hey, I saw your movie!" And the police don't get involved! Such was the case this time around for your Sherpa. Before the interview, we had a lively discussion about New York pizza, versus Chicago pizza  . Unfortunately, I couldn't find either one on a map. Curse you, lack of Social Studies skills! But...
