Episode 61: Social Media Frenzy

In the last week and a half, we have seen a surge of internet philanthropy…but more often than that we have seen a surge of people (albeit raising awareness for something important) soaking themselves in ice water in the name of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. A name few of us have ever heard. In fact, if you spell out the entire thing as opposed to abbreviating it as ALS, most of us still don’t know what it is. Why is that?

Hashtag activism has been on the rise in recent years. On today’s podcast, myself and returning guest, Mike Mulvihill take a look at as to why.

Episode 20: Rantin’ and Ravin’

This week’s podcast is a bit different. I gave it a go at doing one with no guest. I recently traveled to California to interview one of my heroes as well as officiate a wedding. Lots of things have been going on in my universe: acoustic archiving, finally joining OkCupid, confrontations with TSA guards, watching a Christian girls soccer team who had several members who wanted to mount each other. Things are getting weird, and I’m here to tell you about them. Dig it.
