Veseria is a great 4 piece rock band from Indianapolis. I am a big fan and was excited to talk to Patrick about the band and the new album, RLTVTY. Check out Veseria at Ignition Music in Goshen, IN on August 11 with Brother O’ Brother opening. This is going to be a great show!

I’ve been doing comedy for a year and a half. So, why not interview some comics one on one? Dirk Handlin gave me my first opportunity. Dirk is performing comedy as a hobby but still puts a lot of effort into getting it right. We talked about his college football days and some of his hilariously obscene pictures.

Ashley Moore had been working in the childcare industry for 10 years and saw a problem. She was spending too much time finding employees who were qualified and passionate about childcare. Ashley decided to fix the problem by creating Moore Allies, a childcare staffing company that finds and trains childcare employees for all the local childcare facilities. This is a great story about a good idea becoming a great business.
