You can find Jim Kliss and his podcast, 2 Guys, a Girl, & a Goblin here:
You can find Chris Rahe at local open mics and as a featured performer at The Drop Comedy Club

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.
