Fear and Coffee-Maker Loathing

Last year, before arriving to one of the Stanford Inn & Resort’s retreats I head up, a guest called ahead to make sure the resort had the following two things in the rooms: shampoo and…wait for it…a coffee-maker. (I’m not going to address the shampoo—suffice it to say she had certain preconceived notions of what a […]

To Champion the Mundane

Quick thanks to a few donations that recently came in! This money enabled me to buy the equipment I needed/wanted for my new upcoming podcast (see the equipment in this recent vlog!).

There’s a fine line between discipline and militancy

(Subscribe to my YouTube channel–there you will see me going heavy duty in setting up my new studio for a…well…I’m getting closer to a new podcast with each passing day.

Change Up.

First a quick thanks for the recent podcast donations I’ve received. Some new-ish listeners who started with older episodes (btw, ALL 222 episodes are on my site, and the most recent 50 are on iTunes) are just now getting the news that I shut down the show.
