Ep.39 On Love & Gravity, Why We Fall and Songwriting in Nashville w/ Fred Knipe

Fred Knipe has spent his entire life involved in a plethora of creative projects from being a hit-producing songwriter in Nashville, to an Emmy award winning writer for TV. Most recently he developed the persona of Merlin F Ludiker, a free-range savant who has entertained large law firms in every major city with his blend of wit and intellectual humor.

Fred and I talk about what has kept him in the game of creativity for so long, what he learned writing country hits in Nashville, the importance of relationships in the creative process and where brilliant ideas come from.

Ep.38 The Art of the Rant and Sharing Your Noise w/ John Morgan

John Morgan is a public speaker, coach and one of the most passionate people I know. I’ve been wanting to have this conversation for several years, ever since I met John. His YouTube channel is a great demonstration of what happens when you hit record and don’t filter what you say. I love the passion he brings to everything and how he really trusts his own wisdom.

Ep.36 Ghostwriting for the Mafia, Barcelona and Nurturing Your Inner Author w/ Dr. Angela Lauria

Angela Lauria is an author, podcaster and author incubator who has helped hundreds of authors publish books that support their business. There are so many wonderful quotes from this episode that I want to share, and here are a couple. “Everything I write is a love letter to one person”. “There’s no such thing as truth”. “Communication is impossible.” Author Angela Lauria shares her incredible story of everything from being hired by the mafia as a ghost writer to how she helps people write books in 3-days. THREE days!!! What a fun conversation, she also sold me on visiting Barcelona, which after listening to this episode, you’ll be sold too.
