198-Travis Smith-Internet Wizard

April 27, 2017

Travis is no stranger to the interent. Where you and I might have a somewhat limitted memory of how it all came to be, Travis was working for the LA Times and Variety right when the internet was becoming "a thing." Travis has a lot to say as we talk about the internet and our brains, AI, and whether or not we're already there. Travis runs Hop Studios: https://www.hopstudios.com/

195-What is “Health?”

April 17, 2017

On this week's Monday Show, I'm mulling over/trying to re-define "health," and why we fail at trying to "get healthy." As usual, I find it's the existential junk that is more of a hang up than just physical barriers. Aslo a graphic novel review to go somewhat lighter. Do the thing!

194-Francis Arevalo-MC

April 14, 2017

Way back in the heyday of People Doing Things, Francis Arevalo was on the show talking about family, community, art and grand plans. But shortly after that, Francis got sick and everything ground to a halt. For a long time. We go back and talk about that time: what it was like seeing the world move on while he struggled with mental illness and physical fatigue, and then we talk about the many things that got him out of it. Francis has a new album out in June and you can find his music here: https://soundcloud.com/francisarevalomusic

Today on the show, I'm taking a bit of a look back- because one of our earliest guests is coming back on the show. A lot has changed in two years for both of us.

192-Cory McRae-Teacher

April 6, 2017

Cory's no stranger to People Doing Things but we've never actually sat down and talked about his real passion: education. We go back and talk about how he got into it in the first place, his philosophy, and where education is at right now, both on the ground and in the broader picture.

190-Alex Reeder-Comics Artist

March 30, 2017

For artist Alex Reeder, art has always been a way to express things that might not otherwise get to be expressed: life, fear, sexuality, gender, relationships, and just good old fashioned fun. Alex and I talk about moving around and searching for that thing we're all searching for: being understood and cared for.
