Creative Ops | Ep.5 | Fresh Coast Seed Co.

May 30, 2020

Wanna know what goes into making award-winning cannabis? Oh good, because I packed up my podcast gear and drove into the wilderness of northern Michigan to record--on location at their grow facility--with Ross from Fresh Coast Seed Co., a medical marijuana and seed company. He has an interesting backstory--including time on an Alaskan fishing boat--and got into the cannabis industry first and foremost to help people. Fresh Coast is well known in the marijuana community, especially after taking gold at the 2019 Detroit High Times Cannabis Cup for vape cartridges. This interview is informative on an easy to understand level. I hope you enjoy it. Check out Fresh Coast Seed Co. on Instagram, and order seeds from The Bean Lodge.

Creative Ops | Ep.4 | Heartsick vocalist Alfonso Civile rocks my podcast!

May 13, 2020

Alfonso Civile of the Lansing-based metal band Heartsick joined me for a discussion via the magic of the internet. A few of the things we talked about: the 20 year history of the band (formerly Know Lyfe), how they're adapting during the stay-at-home order, what they have planned for the future,  the band's creative process, and more!

Alfonso is super creative, and just a really nice guy. I hope to have him back sometime; I could've talked to him way longer. Hope you enjoy our chat as much as I did. 

Find out what else he and the band are up to, how to watch/listen/support them in these odd times:
