Alex decided to get more involved in politics after the 2016 election. He helped with Mel Hall’s campaign and has made the decision to run for the At Large position of the South Bend Common Council. His story is compelling. Give it a listen.
I talked to Scott Leeper from Mind Muscle Strength about his struggles in life and how he used them to become a better person as well as show others how to become better.
Chris Banta and Warner Swopes make up the band Brother O’ Brother. I had a great talk with Chris about the band, playing live, and his record company, Romanus Records.
Raphael, Sonny, Sam, & Adam from Lalo Cura sat with me in their studio for a great interview. We talked about how the band was formed and their new album; Suenos. Check out the video for the first single from Suenos called “Testimonios” at the link below:
This is the first installment of the Scott & Josh Show! Josh Mandell joins as cohost and we talk about South Bend, escape rooms, & all things Michiana.
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.
Curt Heckaman is a big part of Everybody Has a Story in South Bend. Even though he lives in Canada, he is continually working with some great people to help raise funds for South Bend Schools in need. Everybody Has Story brings us shows with great local musical acts and donates the proceeds to a school each year so that teachers will have the items they need to teach their students.
Check out their June 10 event at Martha’s Midway Tavern:
It’s always great catching up with Myles Robertson. He puts a seemingly endless amount of energy into making South Bend a better place and letting people know how great it is. We talked about the Purple Porch Co-op and many other topics including art and South Bend, of course!
