About Us

A podcast for real people in the real world. American culture is undergoing some intense redesign, as evolution would have it. What's really going on out there and how do you relate? My mission is to unite humanity through deep conversation. We are linked as a species no matter the beliefs you live by.

Reginald B "Actor/ Creator/ Intellectual/ New Uncle"

EReggie is a long time friend of mine who has a heart of gold. He had recently returned to Sacramento from a brief living experience in Los Angeles California. He had moved there with the intentions of becoming a full time working actor. As you might assume, it was a challenging journey for Reg and his girlfriend. We touch on a lot of topical issues including but not limited to addiction, sexuality, relationships, climate change, spirituality, childhood etc. The main idea about the next few episodes I would like you to have in mind while listening, is the transformation in your host (me) and my effort to clean up my attempts to express an idea. As always, thanks so much for listening!

Conversation with Keith Continued...

EI ask Keith about his zodiac which leads us to other personal philosophies about life. Keith talks about his experience in the army and his take on politics. As this journey continues, I learn so much about what is actually floating around in my own mind as "real". I would consider this episode a true connection to a life long friend that offered so much opportunity for growth. Thanks Keith for the friendship!

Black in America

Ashley R "Professional Mermaid/ Business owner/ Entrepreneur/ Mother"

ELife in this ocean of possibilities is a struggle and you have to have a tough shell to make it big. Ashley sure makes it look easy! She has worked her way into the community of mermaid performers by having a natural way with children and performance art. She has even started her own company making childhood fantasies become a reality. All the while, supporting a husband going through nursing school and raising a "Nemo" of her own. The challenges of life are much easier with a partner who relentlessly supports you but, they can still be challenging. In this episode Ashley openly shares some of the ups and downs of pregnancy and motherhood. Her stories of growth and loving relationships offer some great prospective bringing much needed positivity to the world. Photo taken by: Stephen Jacobson

John R "Nurse/ Father/ Husband/ Comedian"

ECurious about a Nurse's homelife?? How's about a Nurse who also takes care of a toddler in his down time??? I sure as hell am. This episode is with my friend John. Over the last few years, John has acquired the social status' of "Father and Husband." Before that, he was just a guy from the Mid-Atlantic. Not sure what that really means but, it's a thing... I think. We talk about fatherhood and the transition thru pregnancy as a medically educated man... growing up in different cultures and navigating new communities in early adolescence... distracted driving... politics and a few stories about relationships. John, thank you for all your courage!

Nick "Salesman/ Single Father"

EYou ever meet a salesman you wanted to talk to? Well, Nick is that guy. We had work together selling home improvement projects. We went door to door, mostly to encounter really interesting homeowners who were not interested. It was certainly a dead look into the eyes of mental illness in the world. We shared some really sketchy experiences surviving weirdos and it bonded us for life. One lady dressed like a clown and talked just like Bernie Mac. Another, a man's profile shows up on Megan's law during google search ...as we pull up to the driveway. Fun stuff!

Darrell "Police Officer/ New brother-in-law"

EI had some curious questions about the obvious with my new brother-in-law. This seemed to be a natural evolution of male bonding. As Darrell is now a family member, I assume it is somewhat permissible to get straight to the point with personal ideals. Conversationally, this is a wealth of connectivity. In our open discussion, we talk about some fairly heavy world issues. I just so happen to subscribe to the thought formulas he openly confesses. "How do you feel about use of the "N-word"?" "What is your view on Trump?" "What's the hardest part of your job?" Thank you Darrell for being so brave.

Josh "Cafe associate/ Performer Extraordinaire"

EJosh is a long time friend of mine and a valuable member of the community. His effort in local outreach programs along with his brutal honesty makes him one of the most upstanding men I know personally. However, with one of his most recent Facebook status updates stirring up some commotion, I just had to ask, where is this coming from?? I had my own judgmental reaction to this controversy at first, but left the conversation enlightened of Josh's motives. With a history of homelessness, witnessing police using excessive force at an early age, and an overall tough childhood Josh has overcome adversity and become a respectable member of society. This was an amazing reconnection to an old friend.
