Not a Dr. Seuss character, but a funny character in her own right, Cindy Lou Who has traveled to many interesting places and also discusses her time living in Germany. I took my podcasting prowess to her home, and met her lovely household of animals; you can actually hear her dog, Hank, panting away in the background at many different points during the interview! We also discuss her plans for taking me away on one of her many upcoming cruises so we can do a podcast on location in some exotic places. Thailand, anyone?

Now that we have that out of the way; it's an interesting episode with a guest I've had waiting in the wings for awhile now, and he does not disappoint. He talks about a rough childhood, growing up in a single parent home and how that shaped the man he would be. Jason also shares some potentially frightening and dangerous stories about his time bouncing in bars and clubs, he has since left that scene behind to focus on regular security work and moving into a more positive role in life. It's a Victoria Day holiday in Canada, and this is a jam packed episode!
Join us also as we share a tribute to the legendary Chris Cornell of Soundgarden and what him and his music means to us. It's a loss for words as the shocking news of the singer's death hits us all hard and we share what positives the legendary frontman and songwriter has brought to our lives. Join us to celebrate Chris Cornell. Much love and thoughts go out to his family.
Rest in peace.
Probably the youngest guest I've had on the show thus far, McKinley Townsend is here and to celebrate that, I finally was able to convince my good buddy Fred to be a co-host for this episode. Cool beans. Since Fred knows her best, he set me up with her to be a guest on the podcast and I am very thankful for that.
McKinley discusses where she's from, how her name came to be, a potentially horrific car accident that she was in and was able to walk away from, and even hints at a possible trip to California for us and taking this podcast on the road. Cool beans, indeed. Here's McKinley Townsend!
Everyone needs a little TLC, right? I don't mean the TV Network. I don't mean the awesome song by country group Alabama. I don't mean one of the more popular wrestling style matches. I don't even mean Tender Loving Care! No, this is some TINDER loving care coming at you this week. Stories about the fun of online dating? I've got two of them here for you! I even have a story of my own, kind of, but you'll have to listen to hear how interesting it is. Spoiler Alert: It isn't.
It's a quick one while (he/she)'s away for you, some special outtakes from a couple previous guests. So, have a listen. And share it with all those out there thinking of or currently using TIIIIINNNNDERRRR!
'One might assume I’m referring to a pot of gold. My rainbow represents Autism Spectrum Disorder; and my child, like so many others, is on the spectrum. Approximately 1 in 68 children are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. These numbers continue to rise. Families living with ASD face many challenges. Whether emotional or financial; these families are drowning. We can look away. We can throw in a life preserver…or we can jump in to save them. It’s that easy.'
These are words from Christine Frances Poe, from her website, http://www.tikko.ca. I took a roadtrip to meet her and speak with her about how she is raising Autism Awareness and what Tikko is, and in turn she talks about who her son Dorian is through his favorite stuffed polar bear, Tikko(TM). She's an amazing wife, mother, and person. It was a windy April day when we recorded this on location in Milton, Ontario, Canada, at the Everything Family Show, and I hope you all will be blown away by her story. Or rather, Dorian's story.
