BONUS: My Very First Episode, Featuring Paul Thompson!



Hey Everyone!

I wanted to publish my first ever recording of a podcast, because it was a huge milestone for me to have finally beat back the doubt demons and just press record! It features a conversation with the star of episode #2, Paul Thompson. We had an awesome time discussing the music business, including some of our favorite artists, as well as exploring the current and future state of how we consume music.

#4 – Alejandro Bernard & Zac Davenport: Tales from Lansing, NY



This episode features my first take at interviewing more than one person at a time, but it includes two of my best friends from childhood to take the edge off. We delved into numerous topics including high school hijinx, social status related to athletic involvement, and their experience growing up as only children with a single mom, and how that impacted their development as men.

This was a blast to record, and I sincerely hope you enjoy it!
