About Us

Like everyone, I have had some fun experiences, some embarrassing experiences, some life-defining experiences. This podcast exists as a challenge to myself to remember them, reflect on them and decide what I can learn from them, but I also tell these stories in the hope that others might appreciate, as I have, that with only a few exceptions, the best and most interesting parts of life are made up of small, non-public moments. These are my stories and I hope you enjoy them.

Let's Go to the Videotape. Or Not.

TV news is supposed to have pictures, right? This is the story of the newscast I did (by accident) that contained not a single picture. Thank heavens Youtube wasn't around then.

The Joys and Frustrations of Being a "Band Parent"

We are all proud of our kids' high school accomplishments. But each school activity is its own "world," and unless you are in that "world," you might not get it.

Higher and Higher?

Do you ever wonder what life would have been like if you had pursued your initial career goals? Would it have been great, or a disaster? What if your career goal was to become a rock star? (I'm not kidding).
