Being busy and sick left me with no guest this week. I took the opportunity to talk about why & how I started the Michiana People Podcast, did a retrospective of the episodes to date, and threw out some ideas for the future. This podcast has meant a lot to me mostly because of the inspiring people I’ve met. I hope you have gained some knowledge and inspiration as well.

 

Steve Sult and a group of fellow graduates of John Adams High School are in the habit of helping the community. They do this through an annual variety show called Everybody Has a Story. This is an inspiring episode about a group of people who decided to make a difference instead of taking it easy. This year’s show proceeds will benefit Madison Primary School in the South Bend School system. You’ll hear why they are a deserving benefactor and about the people who make Everybody Has A Story work.

If you visit the Everybody Has A Story site, you can see & hear footage of previous shows, learn about his year’s players, and get tickets for the show. Check it out here:

Jeff Thomas & Gary Stieglitz started off as home craft brewers. After they met at a school function, the idea for starting a brewery started to ferment. Now, Thomas & Stieglitz Brewing Co is a reality. With their new home on 5th St in Goshen, IN, Jeff & Gary are bringing their favorite craft brew to the world. The world (including me) is glad that they are. This was a great story and I really enjoyed learning about the brewing process.
