Dopey: The Dark Comedy of Drug Addiction | Heroin | Cocaine | Meth | Weed | Drugs | LSD | Recovery | Sobriety
This Week on Dopey! After many many years of trying we finally are joined by Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter, author, actor, activist, advocate and more - Steve Earle! Steve comes on the show and tells us how he stumbled into his rock and roll life, and how he found drugs, addiction and ultimately recovery. Many years into his recovery the worst happened - Steve's super talented son, Justin Townes Earle died from a fentanyl overdose. Steve tells the tragic story and how he has remained sober living with such pain. PLUS we have a special guest who hates to be named, my Dad, and emails and voicemails and reviews on a heartbreaking new episode of Dopey. More on Dopey: Dopey Podcast is the world's greatest podcast on drugs, addiction and dumb shit. Chris and I were two IV heroin addicts who loved to talk about all the coke we smoked, snorted and shot, all the pills we ate, smoked, all the weed we smoked and ate, all the booze we consumed and all the consequences we suffered. After making the show for 2 and a half years, Chris tragically relapsed and died from a fentanyl overdose. Dopey continued on, at first to mourn the horrible loss of Chris, but then to continue our mission - which was at its core, to keep addicts and alcoholics company. Whether to laugh at our time in rehab, or cry at the worst missteps we made, Dopey tells the truth about drugs, addiction and recovery. We continually mine the universe for stories rife with debauchery and highlight serious drug taking and alcoholism. We also examine different paths toward addiction recovery. We shine a light on harm reduction and medication assisted treatment. We talk with celebrities and nobodies and stockpile stories to be the greatest one stop shop podcast on all things drugs, addiction, recovery and comedy!

Mike Doskocil, the frontman of Drunks With Guns, continues to excite audiences with his persona and controversial actions. Mike's energy propelled the band's presence in the St. Louis music scene. From launching burritos at unsuspecting performers to his captivating stage charisma, Doskocil is the epitome of rock and roll rebellion. Drunks With Guns early performances, including opening slots for renowned acts like 45 Grave and Samhain, solidified their reputation. Following their disbandment, Doskocil and bandmate Stan pursued separate paths, each releasing their own versions of Drunks With Guns records. Despite facing obstacles and rumors of failed tour plans, the band made a comeback in 2018. This reunion reignited interest, leading to additional shows and recording projects. In fact, Drunks With Guns is currently on tour this spring and summer, with an upcoming live performance on May 27th at TV Eye in Brooklyn.
Episode 207: Joe and Kari are always thrilled to get listener suggestions! First, from Matt B., a look at an act that started out in 1982, Everything But the Girl. True, they are probably best known for their hit from the 90's, but their 80's output is definitely worth checking out. Then, listener Alex suggested a few songs from Minor Detail and Polyrock. And finally, Blair's suggestion becomes a segment called Could've Been So Beautiful: a look at some big hits from 1989 that maybe were TOO big, and a couple of lesser known hits from the same chart that should've charted much higher. Thanks for all the suggestions, and keep 'em coming!

Runaway Souls is a rock and roll band from Louisville, Kentucky comprised of long time local musicians who share a passion for vintage vibes, though the music clearly speaks of today's times. Most of the members played together in different groups over the years before gelling in the lineup of: David Thomas-vocals Darren Barker-guitar Brian Segal-guitar Donnie Bott-bass Ashley Vega-vocals Toni Carroll-vocals Woody Woodmansee-keys Jim Becker-drums Before the pandemic, they performed as a cover band. However, given the time, circumstances, and inspiration a new original sound emerged. A sound that blended their love for big guitars, soaring harmonies, some jammy outros, with tinges of tones from their influences. What started as one song for local radio, "Shelter with You" opened the door for more. One song led to another and eventually the Karma Delivery album was born. Resilience is a recurring theme on the album, with many songs dealing with the times that were and the additional challenges that presented themselves. Runaway Souls is performing live and continuing to write new material for a follow up record. --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/tophillrecording/support

Vicki Morgan, mistress to department store heir and Ronald Reagan confidante, Alfred Bloomingdale, lived beyond her years and died before her time—the victim of a brutal murder. Seething with power, intrigue, sex and obsession, it's a ringside seat into the darker habits of the world's rich and powerful.The Guys Who Spied for China“The Guys Who Spied for China” is a roman a clef, exposing Chinese Espionage Networks during the eighties and nineties.It is the quirky story of how two disparate men uncovered an elaborate spy operation that had functioned on American soil for nearly four decades. Through fate and serendipity, Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll, meets Johnny G Man, a vaunted scientist and the ultimate Cold Warrior.What they helped unmask was a network of home grown spies in California and throughout the United States. As a result, newspapers ran relentless headlines depicting Chinese Espionage practices in the United States. The year 1985 was pronounced by the news media as “The Year of the Spy.”“This is a new twist on the spy drama. While providing details of events that were often swept under the rug, this very personal and often darkly humorous tale captures what it feels like to be suddenly thrust into the shadowy world of espionage. You get to feel what it's like to be there.The Guys Who Spied for China is set largely in California, in the Santa Monica Mountain Range, just above Beverly Hills.What's remarkable is that most of this story is true.

Hello and welcome to How Did I Get Here? From The Vault! Today, we go back to episode 46 with legendary singer-songwriter and rock and roll hero, Alejandro Escovedo. This show was originally released on 2/14/12. Below are my original notes form the show. My guest for episode 46 is the legendary Alejandro Escovedo. When I wrote Alejandro a few months ago to see if he was interested in being a guest on my show, I was so flattered when he responded with a "yes" and that he had been listening and loved it, but that he was about to start recording and would get in touch when he was done. Well, he did. He wrote me a couple of weeks ago to see if I was ready for the interview, so I went to his place last week and we sat down and he told me the story of his life in music. Alejandro is "the real deal" not that all of my other guests aren't, Alejandro is just one of those incredibly special artists. The kind of artist you wish you were. I don't really know what else to say. I was very fortunate to sit down and get to ask everything I wanted to ask. I hope you enjoy our conversation. I did. Ciao! -JG
Business has changed and it's scary. What do you do in a downturn market? You go back to the basics, because there is still a lot of money to be made now.Three Things You'll Learn in This EpisodeThe basics of marketing in this economy.What you're doing wrong right now.Why this market is so scary, but doesn't have to be.ResourceCheck Out The Locker RoomReal Estate Marketing DudeThe Listing Advocate (Earn more listings!)REMD on YouTubeREMD on InstagramTranscript:So how do you track new business? You constantly don't have to chase it. Hi, I'm Mike Cuevas to real estate marketing. And this podcast is all about building a strong personal brand people have come to know, like trust and most importantly, refer. But remember, it is not their job to remember what you do for a living. It's your job to remind them. Let's get startedwhat is up ladies and gentlemen, welcome another episode of the real estate marketing dude, podcast, folks, we are gonna get back to some basics today.People are wondering what the hell do I do? What should I do in business isn't the same as it was 18 months ago, we don't know what the hell's going on anymore. And people are like, freaking out. Chill, dude, these are the best brand building opportunities to take share and territory than ever. But I understand it's very scary for a lot of people right now. Because reality is most of you have never seen a shift. None of you guys have seen a down market to the tune of about 85% of you. And if you've never seen a down market, you're probably shitting your pants right now and rightfully so. So what we're gonna be chatting about today is what do you do in a down market, this will be my second and a half one, I believe in my career. And we're gonna give you guys some very, very basic advice. But it is basic. And unfortunately, what we're chatting about today is you got to go back to the basics. One of the gurus I followed when I first started my career, I think, as Craig forte, who said, You must be brilliant at the basics. You got to be brilliant at the basics. And I think that's correct, but if not, whoever it is, thanks.I still think about that. And it's absolutely true. The big teams out there right now and there's a lot of you guys are listening to this, you're getting your ass kicked right now that $20,000 of ad spend, you've been spending monthly? Well, the ROI isn't converting the same way it is because when there is a market shift, what you can't control are consumer habits. And that's exactly why today's episode is gonna be going back to the fucking basics. So without further ado, we have Mr. Jake Dixon on the show today, Jake runs the locker room, which is a coaching company, a really kick ass coach, coaching company, very bottom of the line guy and he's dealing with this in all markets across the country, because they have students everywhere. And I think what you're going to get today is a lot of insight on what you should be doing right now. So quit freaking out, grab your pen. Stop running on your treadmill and listen to what Jake says Jake, how you doing, dude? Doing great, Mike. Glad to be here, man. Let's rock and roll. Thanks for coming on the show here. Why don't you tell everyone a little bit about yourself? Jake's a dude.I'd say why don't you Tom, how'd you get your why you guys have so many coaching students? Why should ever listen to you? Well, you guys been doing? Yeah, I'm gonna dudes. Dude. I'm a coach dude with the marketing dude, what a great combo here. So yeah, my quick background is I played college and professional baseball. Hence inspiration for come coming up with the locker room, a lot of symbolism, a lot of sports analogies, some of which I'm sure I'm gonna drop on you and your audience today. But we specialize in working with broker owners team leads, as well as the agents who we feel are underserved I lovingly refer to as the blue ocean, which are any agents launching their careers, their dual career, they're selling fewer than 24 homes per year. That's right Blue Ocean Strategy book. And that is that's our bread and butter. There's plenty of coaching options out there for the mega mega superstar agents and producing agents. And we can serve you as well. But our messaging and our specialization is really birthed the newer, lesser producing crowd that wants to level up. I remember when I first got into real estate, I was doing a keg stand. And then a week later walking down Michigan Avenue wearing a suit and I'm like what the fuck just happened. And I joined a company that was called home touch. They're out of business since but we had a kiosk and water tower mall right next to Fannie Mae chocolates. And if you've ever been to water tower mall, it's a tourist trap. And there's a lot of people now you might not be able to walk through there without getting mugged. But that's a different story.And I sold my first four, six houses right off the floor. And it was we'd have listings, sitting there, right? And listings would just be sitting there. And then people would stop and be like, Oh, what's that worth just certain note the same concept as a window shopping when you walk past the real estate office in a place you've never been to before you always say hey, what does that house going for here? Right? So it was very easy to have these conversations and I was only 22. But instantly I knew the name of the game was having conversations because of that. Right? And that's so basic, and the gurus will tell us so you're one more note away from your next Yes, the way I look at content creation brand and all that as your own more view away from your next referral and our client because 10 to 15% of the people that see your shit, they're moving and 100% of them have referral for you guys. So my version of going back to basics is always go back to the basics if not everyone you know that knows of that you'd invite to your wedding or funeral with an unlimited budget doesn't know the fact that you're in real estate. That's what I mean. Go back to the basics. Now. How hard is it? I've never understood this real estate. I can't get business I can't get business. How hard is it just inlet the with Facebook IIemail, social media just know the let the people 100 to 200 people that you would say hello to in the grocery store. How hard is it to remind them? You're in real estate? This isn't rocket science.No, you're exactly right. And that's why we say here our motto at lockerroom is real estate's a contact sport, it's time to get your jersey 30. Some of you are going home every day without a speck of dirt to be shown for on that jersey. And so, to emphasize the point you're making there, you're absolutely right, right. We have something a concept here something crunchy, maybe called the five to 25 challenge. All we've done is repackage something that otherwise becomes numb and unsexy and made it sexy again, because I can beat you over the head, like every other person about lead generation and making your contacts. But we just repurposed it, calling it the five to 25 challenge. So math majors out there. Here's what that is. It's five contacts a day for five days a week, over, let's say, 50 weeks out of the year. Anybody can do that. I don't care if you're launching your new business, your dual career are you the busiest superstar mega producer out there, you can have five intentional conversations every day, no excuses. So that's 1250 Real Estate conversations over the course of the year. And I've been tracking this religiously now for seven years. And again, keep in mind my audience, but I see consistently a 2% conversion rate meaning for every 50 people I talk to, it will yield me one new piece of business. So what's 1250 Real Estate conversations times 2%? Right? You guessed it 2525 sales in a year puts you now in the top three to 5% of producers according to Nar put that on your fridge, you know? And yeah, what am I gonna talk about? I can't just call people to say, What am I gonna say, Jake? Well, that's a problem. Mike, you know this as well, as I do is I work with so many agents who say, Well, I've already talked to everybody I know. And I call bullshit because what you actually have done is you cherry, pick your database, show me your your phone contacts, and then show me all the friends and people you have on your social media. You mean to tell me you talk to every single person, highly unlikely what you've actually done is just cherry pick your database, because you're so busy on or worried about what am I supposed to say? So it's not a contact issue. It's a skill set issue, which is scripts and dialogues and having the confidence to go speak with people. I hear that all the time people like, especially with content creation, like Dude, I'm not gonna send that video. On Facebook. Everyone already knows I'm in real estate. I'm like, Oh, really? How many deals did you last year, because I break down the math for and here you guys can break down the math, if you're sitting at home too. And how many deals you do last year, they'll say 12 how many friends you have on Facebook 1000? Well, out of those 1000 Friends 100 250 of them fucking moved. But all 1000 of them had a referral for you that you failed to get. And you're telling me you only did 12 transactions over the course of your lifetime. 80% of the people who moved us the first person they met.What are you talking about? The numbers don't add up, right? That's basics. That's basics. It's being everybody's looking for the shiny object get rich, quick pill. And the reality is, last time I checked, unless you want a robot or artificial intelligence mechanism to replace you. We just got to get back to the basics, which is what this is all about. I equate this to a former life when I used to give young kids baseball lessons, right? Again, I have a significant background in sports like, and so I would teach a 12 year old for example, the same way I taught that kid how to grip a bat or hold that baseball properly,is literally the same thing those guys on TV are doing earning millions of dollars a year. They're the best at what they do. Okay, so So the bottom line is this. If it's true in baseball, I've got to be I've got to be led to believe it's true in the sport called Real Estate that the fundamentals don't change, the fundamentals stay the same, right? It's just that the game speeds up. So instead of that kid throwing 55 miles an hour in Little League, now they're throwing 95 miles an hour in the major leagues. But guess what, the grip and the how they hold the bat is the same. So agents the same way you close 12 homes per year is the exact same thing it takes you to close 112 homes per per year, you just need to master the fundamentals. And then notice that the game speeds up but the game and the fundamentals don't change themselves.I gotta take a quick interruption here. Just to show how on brand Jake is and he doesn't catch us if you're not watching us on video. He's got a locker, like a gym locker behind him. And when we're talking about brand and all of this stuff not to interrupt as Carson has had to bring this up is that he's living it like he's not scared to do it. The way he's talking. He's using like all these analogies and I guarantee you that that's has a ton to do and people I feel like I get you dude, you know, but he's not not being himself at the same time. So when people are like, Hey, I don't know what to talk about. When I have these conversations. It's like what do you mean you don't know what to talk about? What do you an introvert. Like you just call someone up and say what's up? I would call up like my frat bros and be like, hey,What's up, dude? What are you doing? And you just say, I've been talking to you I'm in the car, like realtors are in the car for like two hours a day, dude. Like just I would just call people up, like what's going on bro? And then eventually, during that conversation, you're like, so How's work going?And then they're like, Oh, how's it going with you? I just sold the house. Oh, yeah, it's just that constant reiteration. And you never know. And then you're right. Like, what you'll find is like 10% of people, most people don't know they're moving yet to guys this year. Like, you gotta admit it. Some of these some of these people in here relate in yourrelationships and your your database are going to be getting pregnant, they didn't mean to. Right, some of them are going to be like getting sick or losing their jobs, bucks, none of them are going to sell their damn companies, and they're going to want to upgrade, right? So it's just you don't know where it is. But what happens is that when somebody wants to freakin move, 80% of them hire the first person they meet with. And nobody wants to talk about real estate all day long, until they're in the market ready to buy or sell. But that doesn't mean you can't be talking100% Man, I'm doing a class coming up. And it's called CRMs, but not what you think. And of course, I just like to have fun with people and mess with them. But so CRM is an acronym, because I get asked all the time, what's it going to take to make it through this market or, you know, survive, and whatever. So I put in an acronym CRM. So it's consistency. Number one, consistency. Number two is relationships. Number three is market knowledge. And number four, the s, of course, is skill set. If you master those things, and implement those things now, or whatever the cyclical industry is doing, you're gonna be just fine. And that's kind of what we're talking about getting back to the back to the basis, it's not necessarily the shiny technology object. Mice version of CRMs is consistency relationships, understanding the market knowledge and skill set development. Yep, go there. I think that, like, if we're, what we're really going here is like you're working on a business, you're working on your brand is what it comes down to. It's not chasing a bunch of leads, guys, like that's gonna burn you out, especially in a market like this. You know, like, I'm gonna assume that. I mean, we're about to see two more bank failures coming up. fads retarded, and they they're raising interest rates, and they're causing these bank failures that gets the writing's on the wall.And I don't know, I don't know what's gonna happen. But there's an opportunity there, right? No one's talking about that right now on social. So like, what kind of conversations can you have on a brand? Well, I'm just gonna talk about current events.You know what I mean? Like that, there's so many ways you can go out and do it. But the other thing you want to think about in times like these is that so many people are very quiet right now. And that's why you want to be very loud. And in a shift, that's where the opportunity is, you could take territory and territory doesn't have to be physical territories attention, guys. And the more attention you have, the more territory you're gonna get, and more people know you are then the more conversations you have, like we're talking about. And it's nice when you have these conversations, and you do them with content or you reach out one on one, whatever it is. You're building a brand at the same time. It doesn't happen overnight. Jake wasn't an all star pitchers first round were you Jake. I mean, I'd like to think I was maybe in my head, but hell no, it took a lot of work alot of reps. No, I love what you're saying there because it's it goes back to being human. We are human beings and stop making it weird. Like, dude, sometimes the word lead generator prospect freaks people out. I don't know, I'm just a small town, dude, from the sticks of Illinois. To me, it's going out and making friends and having real conversations. Congratulations, you lead generated because in a normal conversation, which means it's back and forth. If you ask somebody enough questions, they're bound to ask you back something like how are you or how's your business? That's when the real estate Gods open up the clouds and it's your chance not to blow it. And because you can subtly input something about real estate, like you said, here's another little little trick on words, one of our coaches, which I thought was genius, recently was targeting this the subject of like, well, what am I supposed to say, you know, I can't just call him when I need something and beat him over the head with who do you know, look at a buy, sell, invest in real estate. That's the worst. I hate that. Don't do that. Please, just stop doing that. Don't do that. That's like saying, Who wants to sleep with me today? Right.It's a booty call.So so check it out, though. So she said we need to start need generating and stop worrying about lead generating need and Edie if I call somebody say how are you? What can I do for you, especially in that post COVID era, all that other stuff will take care of itself? Start position yourself of being a person of value in a connector and asking how can I help? What do you need from me? And the rest of the stuff will take care of itself. So maybe some of you need to start need generating and quit worrying so much about lead generating. I love that. I got an email today from one of our clients. She's a mortgage broker, and I think she's the last mortgage broker I've left as a video client.Because you guys all quit, because you're scared. And what happens is, is that she's crushing it. She actually reached out this morning and she's like, Hey, I have a real estate agent. And her and her husband also own a bakery, and I want to add value to her. So I'd love to feature her on like a business type interview and mend that relationship. I'm like, That's an excellent idea.Because she's swimming upstream guys, like, you know, she's thinking in the future she's cultivating and every other lender in her market are dying, and they're sitting underneath the desk shaking,scared and not doing anything, just worrying about what's gonna happen tomorrow. But she's being proactive, and she's taking territory. This is what I mean by that. And it's super super. It's not rocket science. It's grassroots, you know, and you're right. So you can do it from the numbers game with the database, or the five to 25 challenge. But again, to your point, just there, you know, I'm a strong advocate of forming your top 50 MVPs. I don't care if you're a brand new agent and a new market or whatever. But who are your MVP is those raving fans, those core advocates, and some of them are probably most of them are in the form of other people within the real estate industry, insurance agents, carpet cleaners, pest control companies, general contractors, on and on and on. If I have coffee or lunch with one of them a week for 50 weeks, you can't tell me that 50% of them probably are going to refer you a piece of business this year. That's 25 sales right there. Yep. Now make it a symbiotic two way relationship. It's not all of what's in it for me. But hopefully your listeners are, you know, get what I'm saying here. You approach it the right way. But you got 50 People like that in your back pocket, and even half of them deliver for you every year with one referral. Jackpot. Yep. Sobesides reaching out cultivating relationships, what else can we be doing?Why personally, I'm a big proponent of this, we need to be focusing on ourselves, how are you growing yourself? How are you protecting that thing upstairs in your brain or in your head called your brain? And so I'm a big proponent of personal growth. And that's why people are listening to your podcast. I have to assume Mike because they dig your content and it helps snap them out of the funk. Who you're surrounding yourself with what conferences what what things are you feeding yourself because right now, that sucker upstairs is very delicate, and there's so much fear so much noise that we can buy into and become a victim of or we can drown out the noise rise above it and be that agent who's standing there stronger than ever before, whenever the economy or whatever rebounds, because I suspect you feel the same way. I don't give a shit who's in the White House. I don't care what the stock market's doing today. I'm in control of things more than a lot of people care to admit, you know, and if we just stop paying attention to the crap and take control, we'll be just fine. Yeah, you got to surround yourself you're actually having an event coming up soon. I believe in Orlando. Why don't you tell them about that really quick? Yeah, go into events, get your ass out of the you got sometimes just gotta step outside your comfort zone guys. I always came back from events, implementing at least one thing, but more importantly, I got reengaged and reactivated because I was so burnt out. So I'd get the hell out of town go to an event. And then I come back and all sudden, I'm like a new man. What are you having? Yeah, as in you're right. I mean, there's tons of events going on. People are craving connection out getting out from behind these computers and zoom screens all over again. So yes, and everybody's gonna roll their eyes when I say this, but it's in Orlando in August. Oh my gosh, it's so hot. Get over it. We'll be inside. Okay, so August 10 11th. And 12 is our event in Orlando, it's called the TLR breakthrough event. You can go to TLR nation.com/breakthrough event to get all the details. We have two days for agents and two days. For broker owners and or leader leaders in general, it's going to be amazing. So yeah, we're looking forward to it. We've got about 125 spots for agents, 125 spots for brokers. We'd like to keep them small and intimate. And our events are very different from the majority, because they're very heavy on the workshop and collaboration. You're not going to just leave with pages of notes, you're going to leave with things done ready to implement when you get home. Yet, take action.Folks, what I would be doing right now is learning how to use your damn phones and creating a whole lot of content. People are like, Oh, I can't create content. Yes, you can you have three options. One, you learn how to do it and you start doing a bunch of short form stuff. And videos, too. You hire somebody to do it for you. But that just depends if you have the budget, and then threeyou do a little bit of both. There's no shortage of it. But like for those you that are short on budget, then learn the time put the time into what else you do and don't have any clients. So what else are you going to be doing right now?Um, if you have if you're too busy then you have money because otherwise you wouldn't be busy so then reinvest that money could be in such a cheapass like, you have to focus on putting it into the business you guys, you can't be quiet right now I would I think created I saw create a lot of noise I saw an awesome probably the best ad video I've ever seen was Ryan car 32nd or 62nd real best ad I've ever seen on social at least for real estate agent targeting real estate agents. And he basically just said the same shit. Like he's like, dude, like, these markets are great double down on your brand. I never bought a lead in my life like the television show doesn't hurt. But same thing. You know what I mean? It's he's, he's on point is it's true. It's just a giant popularity contest. Yeah, you're right. I mean, we have a whole section on our event from Jeff fitzer. Some people might know Jeff, who listened to this and he's going to talk about marketing and videos specifically at our event. And it reminds me what you're just saying of Gary Vee, or depending on who you follow. There's all different opinions on this. But he says stop worrying about creating and start documenting. Right and so my buddy Josh down in Jacksonville, Florida, was notorious. He has 1000s of videos on his YouTube channel, mega mega agent 65% of his business comes legit from YouTube. And to make a long story short, one of his most popular most watched videos of all time, check this out now was he got a nasty letter from his HOA? Basically saying, dude, you got all these nasty hard water stains on your mailbox, it looks like shit, you need to you need to do something you need to paint your mailbox. So he could have just painted in mail his mailbox. But what he thought to do is repurpose that as an opportunity to talk to his neighbors, that where he lives works and plays, right? And so he flips his video camera around on his phone and says, Hey, what's up neighbors. It's your local favorite, you know, realtor, Josh here, blah, blah, blah, look, I'm getting ready to paint my mailbox, I got this letter. Here's a couple tips on how to go about painting your mailbox. So it looks like a million bucks. Like he was going to do it anyways. But it was just that I'm amongst the people. I'm a man of the community. And oh, by the way, I'm a real estate agent. You know, it was just beautiful. He's got so much business on video like that. Crazy. That has nothing to do with real estate. Like it's no, it's so we had a guy that started. He's just doing a that's a good tip. If you guys doing short form content, you have to upload it as a real please don't upload it as a regular video. So we had this guy and he was we're doing all of his editing work. And you know, he stopped talking about real estate, you start doing barbecue reviews. And in all of his videos, he's always wearing like a hat that says like, I'm a realtor or shirts that say I love real estate or something like that. So he doesn't have to say it. So he's just branding, the fact that he's in real estate, but it's very guy Ferraris. He's going around and just doing restaurant interviews. And all he's doing is eating. Right. And he's just he just he's a total dude, he looks like it. He started uploading them as reals. I mean, it shipped blew up like he's got like, every real now is like 3000 views, 4000 views, 10,000 views. And now he's become known as like this barbecue guy. On the flip side, we have an attorney I started doing content for and she's a bankruptcy attorney. And she's like, well, what can I do to stand a little bit different? She's like, 75 years old. And I'm like, what do you do on the weekends.And I found out that she knits picture that 75 year old who knits a My Great. Well, all I want you to do on video is just start, I want you to be knitting a ball of yarn. While you're telling me about bankruptcy. It's very simple. No one's gonna care what you talk about, but they remember how you said it. So it's very simple to build attention right now, you guys, you don't have to overthink this stuff. But you have to start doing it. Because right now, there's a lack of people doing it. A lot of your competition is scared. And when you just take the earnest and start doing it, you're gonna get the noticed. That's what a shift is. Yes, it won't pay off right now. Probably take 3678 months, but I could guarantee you in 12 months from now, a year from now, you'll come back and you'd be like, Holy fuck, I was so glad I started creating that content. That's awesome, man. I've never heard anyone who hasn't like I have not heard anyone who have it. The only time it doesn't work is if people don't like you. That's nothing I can help you with. You're in the wrong damn business.So reminds me like I don't know if you follow like Dave Portnoy or somebody who just does pizza reviews. Oh, yeah. Love. You know, all the do does is pizza review.Best pizza review was in the South Loop. I live in the city, Chicago, and he's doing a pizza review at eighth and state and it's a pizza place I've been to many times, and there's a cardigan stolen right behind him with a cop just sitting there waiting. And it's the best pizza review ever. And he's just eaten a pizza testing. And he's just like, dude, that car just gets stolen.Right in the middle of the city, but that was one of the it wasn't just a pizza show. Like that's why I'm talking about I remember that. But now I'd also remember he's the pizza guy. So like, you guys, be you. That's the point though. Like the end of the day. What are we doing here? I would argue or submit at least it's to win the mindshare battle. If I can win their mind. Look, I don't have to remind them every day.Some day or every conversation what I do if I'm doing my job effectively, they'll know. But what are we going to talk about between now and then seven years or nine years from now when they have an actual real estate need to buy or sell? We better find something else to talk about and stay top of mind with each other. So whether it's pizza or barbecue or knitting or whatever, take something you naturally enjoy. Create some video content like you're saying with it, and you stay top of mind amongst the people. Yep.Not that hard, guys. You just got to do it. Folks, we appreciate you listen to this episode. Why don't we Jake, tell them again about that event. I might be going there. might check it out. Love to have you. So yeah, man. It's Orlando, the TLR breakthrough event August 10.

97X - Rumblings from the Big Bush
After 97X signed off in 2004, "the future of rock and roll" stayed alive as woxy.com - with many fits and starts (and stops) along the way. "Angel investors"... LaLa.com... Future Sounds... Oxford... Longworth Hall in Cincinnati... Austin, Texas. The dot-com version had several homes, and more lives than a cat, before finally ending quite abruptly on March 23, 2010. We talk to the folks who experienced all those ups and downs, and lived to tell the tale: Shiv, Mike Taylor, Joe Long, Brian Niesz, and Bryan J. Miller share their stories of the woxy.com era.

Happy Spooky Wednesday and HAPPY HOMEGROWN ONE AND ALL!!! This week we recorded very early in preparation for our favorite music festival and the results are a little... chaotic? First up, Kala wanted to discuss something music related this week, so she's telling us all about the haunting of Meat Loaf. This beloved rock and roll star was known for his awesome music as well as roles in some amazing films. What we learn this week is that he also had a few encounters with ghosts in his life. From his brushes with the afterlife while recording the iconic Bat Out of Hell album all the way to his last investigation with the TAPS team before his passing, you're gonna love hearing all about his paranormal experiences. Next, Brittany talks about Dead Woman's Crossing in Weatherford, OK. While this location may not look creepy at first glance, it's got a pretty wild story that inspired the name. A tale of sadness and MERDY *ahem* excuse me... we mean MURDER. A story of a young mother who trusted the wrong people, and now it would seem that her spirit can not rest. Finally, we finish up with the tale of Phantom Canyon Road near Colorado Springs, CO. This scenic byway is known to many locals, but the origins behind its name remain a mystery. Is it named after the beautiful scenery? An escaped death row prisoner? Or just a plot by the tourism board? If you're interested in checking out Duluth Homegrown Music Festival for yourself, or even volunteering to get a pass to the festival, visit https://duluthhomegrown.org/ for more details! We hope to see you out and around town enjoying music with us this week! --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/leftofskeptic/support

He soon discovered a world of music which he dove into as a connection with his new world. By the time he was on his pre-med path at university, he left to live a life of rock and roll in a punk band for over a decade – making music and touring around the world. But in 2007, something else moved him. He tasted an olive oil when in Tuscany, changing his life forever. Being Fil, he closed his eyes and dove in. This time, his connection was with his curiosity about the “almost spiritual” properties of olive oil. We hear about his thoughts on his deep experience with music and the “communion”, and the similarities with the mystical olive grove. No left brain activity needed here. We discuss the “gift exchange” phenomenon, changing culture, bringing Yale University on board and the magic of the first kiss of the harvest. Because of that tree.

Let's get into it: COLORADO NEWSLINE: Democratic Colorado Gov. Jared Polis signs four gun control bills into lawGOVERNMENTBY: SARA WILSON - APRIL 28, 2023 11:54 AMThe Governor, surrounded by gun-control advocates at a bill signing ceremony said, “Coloradans deserve to be safe in our communities, in our schools, our grocery stores, nightclubs and everywhere in between,” The new laws raise the minimum age to buy a gun to 21, impose a three-day waiting period for gun purchases, expand the state's Extreme Risk Protection Order law and make it easier for gun violence survivors to sue the gun industry.Under Senate Bill 23-170, district attorneys, educators, mental health professionals and other medical providers will be able to petition a judge to confiscate guns from a potentially dangerous person. Previously, only law enforcement and family members had that power under the state's Extreme Risk Protection Order law, also known as the red flag law, which was created in 2019.The expansion aims to increase utilization of the process and extend the petition authority to people who interact with an at-risk person regularly. It is a recognition that some law enforcement officials have been reluctant to use the red flag law when potentially appropriate due to concerns over the Second Amendment.Senate Bill 23-169 raises the age to purchase any gun to 21 years old. Previously, the age restriction was 18 to buy a long gun and 21 to buy a handgun. There are exceptions for members of law enforcement and the military.House Bill 23-1219 imposes a three-day waiting period for people to get a gun after they pay for it. Bill sponsors said that the delayed access to firearms will provide a cooling-off period for people in crisis who might harm themselves or others.Cities will be able to establish longer waiting periods if they choose. If the purchaser's background check takes longer than three days — which it rarely does — they would still need to wait until the background check clears to get their gun.Finally, Senate Bill 23-168 removes a state protection for gun and ammunition dealers and manufactures against lawsuits. Previously, plaintiffs had to pay the legal fees for defendants in dismissed cases involving gun sellers. That is no longer the case.The law makes the gun industry susceptible to lawsuits under the Colorado Consumer Protection Act.bill sponsor Sen. Sonya Jaquez Lewis, a Longmont Democrat, said, “We finally, after 23 years of waiting, can open up Colorado courtrooms to gun violence victims and survivors seeking justice,” Less than an hour after the bill signing, Rocky Mountain Gun Owners leader Taylor Rhodes announced on Twitter that the group had already filed lawsuits challenging the minimum age requirement and waiting period laws. He said they are seeking plaintiffs who could establish standing against the other two new laws.Lawmakers are also considering a bill that would outlaw unserialized firearms, also known as ghost guns. Another firearm bill that would have banned semi-automatic weapons in the state died in its first committee hearing last week.The Legislature adjourns on May 8.COLORADO NEWSLINE: Colorado lawmakers stand with Zooey ZephyrDemocratic state Rep. Brianna Titone of Arvada led over 75 Colorado elected officials - including two Republicans - in sending a letter to Montana lawmakers condemning the removal of Rep. Zooey Zephyr and calling for her to be allowed back in the Montana House chamber.In the letter, Rep. Titone said the removal was an attempt to erase trans people amid growing violence against them and an increase in anti-trans laws being passed in state legislatures.Titone said “As elected officials, it is our responsibility to act with integrity and defend our democracy, and we are deeply concerned with erosion of democratic norms we see proliferating in statehouses across the country. Regardless of your personal stance on these issues, she is still a colleague and a duly elected and sworn representative of the people of Montana. Her voice is no less important than yours.”The letter was joined by two Republican lawmakers, state Reps. Ron Weinberg of Loveland and Rick Taggart of Grand Junction.On Tuesday, Montana House Republicans posted a notice announcing they would take up disciplinary measures against Zephyr, Montana's first openly transgender representative, after she said that legislators who voted for a bill that bans gender-affirming care for minors would have blood on their hands, in reference to suicide rates among trans youth. The Montana House voted along party lines Wednesday to bar Zephyr from entering the House floor or gallery for the remainder of the legislative session, only allowing her to participate in votes via Zoom.Rep. Titone made history in 2018 when she was elected the first openly transgender state legislator in Colorado. As chair of the Colorado Legislative LGBTQ caucus, she's worked alongside members of the House and Senate to expand and protect LGBTQ rights in the state.In the letter, Titone applauded Zephyr for her efforts in the Montana Legislature, saying that she has “placed a spotlight of truth on the very real damage anti-trans legislation could have on Montanans who are already struggling with discrimination and growing fear of physical harm.”The Montana state legislative session ends on May 10, and Zephyr is unlikely to be reinstated before the end of the session.

In their letters, the groups cited an increase in extremist and conspiratorial rhetoric espoused by Arizona public officials, specifically, publicly elected sheriffs. “We are deeply concerned by the possibility that this amended rule will open the door for Arizona peace officers to receive training from adherents of the ‘constitutional sheriffs' movement and other actors who urge local law enforcement to assume authorities beyond those allowed by law,” wrote Mary McCord, the executive director of Georgetown University Law Center's ICAP, a nonpartisan institute focused on constitutional rights and protecting democratic processes.McCord warned that such taxpayer-funded trainings “would place residents at risk of improper activity by county peace officers” and pose a particular threat to brown and Black communities, “who are at the greatest risk of harm from abuses by law enforcement.”The letters cited previous reporting about so-called “constitutional sheriff” groups, which include the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association. The group is part of a national movement built on the idea that a local sheriff's power supersedes that of higher government entities including the U.S. president and the U.S. Supreme Court, and that sheriffs have a duty to nullify laws they interpret as unconstitutional.The civil rights and advocacy organizations highlighted numerous connections between the CSPOA and a variety of hate groups, with the NAACP denouncing some CSPOA members as “prominent antisemites, QAnon conspiracists, white nationalists and neo-confederates.”Sarah Kader, community manager for ADL Arizona, a state-level branch of a national organization that combats hate groups in the U.S., wrote “If the revised rule goes into effect, we fear that domestic extremists, based on their previous actions, will rush to take advantage of the opportunity,” Rachel Goldwasser, a senior research analyst for the Southern Poverty Law Center, warned that the rule change could be used as a blueprint for creating workarounds allowing extremist organizations to train law enforcement in other states.Neither the governor, Democrat Katie Hobbs nor the attorney general, Democrat Kris Mayes, directly addressed concerns about neo-confederates and other domestic extremists running law enforcement trainings.ADL confirmed it did not receive a response from Gov. Hobbs' office until after the rule change took effect, though a spokesperson indicated the group had “every reason to believe that the Governor's office understands the concerns we have raised in our letters and is taking them seriously.” In their letters, ADL, SPLC and the NAACP all expressed concerns that more than half of Arizona sheriffs are at least partially aligned with the constitutional sheriff movement—connections AZCIR highlighted in its 2022 reporting.Rachel Goldwasser of SPLC said “Arizona has a large extremist presence in the Legislature, sheriffs' offices and among the public, unfortunately. They'll exploit any opportunity for these extremists to spread their ideology.”Three of the four letters also issued a warning about Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb, who has known ties to CSPOA and is the frontman for Protect America Now, another so-called “constitutional sheriff” organization.Lamb, who announced a bid for the U.S. Senate in April, has developed a national presence by appearing on a slew of fringe right-wing news networks and podcasts, including those espousing QAnon conspiracies. Lamb did not respond to a request for comment.Sarah Kader of ADL said “In recent years, extreme ideologies have been mainstreamed and normalized at an alarming pace. This is due in large part to the growing number of elected officials and other high-profile individuals who traffic in conspiracies and hate.”This article first appeared on Arizona Center for Investigative Reporting and is republished here under a Creative Commons license.DENVER WESTWORD: How Hard Can it Bee? ZzzzzzBee Here Now: Capella Ranch Has a Honey of an IdeaCATIE CHESHIRE APRIL 25, 2023 6:53AMIn countries like Germany and Slovenia, inhaling the aerosol created by bees in an apiary, or collection of beehives, is an authorized treatment for respiratory diseases. But in the United States, there are only three places that offer the experience: one in Georgia, one in Michigan, and Capella Ranch in Lafayette Colorado, which just opened for its second season.Carolyn Peterson, who owns the ranch with her family said “I'm going to be out here all summer, talking to people and enjoying them and hearing their stories. They're going to come stressed out, and then they're going to leave relaxed.”Capella Ranch currently has sheep, Nigerian dwarf goats, Nubian goats, ducks, chickens, a few turkeys and, of course, bees, the first of which arrived in 2018. To create their bee therapy Shangri-la, the Petersons started by building two cedar huts shaped like irregular pentagons. The cedar contributes to the aroma in the huts, although its durability in the Colorado weather is its chief asset here. The slanted roof of the hut concentrates the aerosol so people can breathe it in while they're lying flat. “Everyone comes out with a different experience,” Carolyn says. “They get in there. They lie down. They take in the whole thing, and then they just sort of concentrate on the humming of the bees.”When bees make honey, there's a lot of water in it at first, so the insects work to reduce the moisture content by flapping their wings. As it evaporates, the moisture is carried into the air to form an aerosol that people find therapeutic.The bees also create an electromagnetic field with their vibration, which is at a frequency that's calming to the human parasympathetic nervous system - a network of nerves that helps relax the body. Some people can feel the field, but most notice the smell first. Underneath the scent of cedar, there is the aromatic tang of the bees at work. Almost like the smell of a newborn baby, but with an extra oomph.“That is all the pollen, nectars, amino acids and essential oils that the bees are bringing in to make the honey,” Carolyn says. “It's just kind of an odd smell, and it's supposed to be very good to breathe in.”In Slovenia, the bee experience has been used to calm firefighters after hard jobs, children who have behavioral problems at school, and parents of those children, who might need some relaxation as well. The Petersons note that they aren't medical professionals, so they don't consider their huts medicinal.“If it happens to help, great,” Carolyn says. “It's relaxing. It's thirty minutes of nobody bugging you.”One person who says the bee huts have helped is Marsha Ruggeri, who lives in Lafayette. She went to Capella Ranch four times during its inaugural season.She first came with a friend who'd bought a deal on Groupon. After struggling with heightened asthma symptoms the past two years — which she attributes to wildfires and air pollution — Ruggeri was excited to learn of a potential way to alleviate her symptoms.And, it worked!“I'm not saying it was a panacea,” she says. “It felt like I was actually doing something that wasn't an inhaler or medication and I was regaining some control over how my body was reacting to all this shit in the air.”On Ruggeri's third visit, she experienced the electromagnetic field produced by the bees.“I was laying on my side, and then all of a sudden, I could feel it,” she says. “It really deserves more than one treatment. It's kind of like people who go for acupuncture, and they're like, ‘Well, it didn't do anything for me.' You really need to try it more than once.”Along with the eight hives in the huts, there are six to eight more near a special pond on the ranch where the bees drink. Last summer, over a hundred people came to Capella Ranch to check out the bees; a TikTok Charlie made announcing that the huts were open has gained about 20,000 views.One of those visitors, a reiki and yoga teacher from Fort Collins named Yarmey, found Capella Ranch on Instagram. “I'm really interested in energy and grounding and our connection to nature,” she says. Reiki is a practice of directing energy to help facilitate healing.After her first visit, Yarmey came back a second time, when she says she was really able to share a meditative space with the bees, reveling in their presence in a way that humans rarely get to do with other species.“When else in your life do you get to share space with a million other beings who all are very clear about their purpose and their path and what they need to be doing? Everything felt a little slower, more grounded.”The huts are now open for a second season; anyone is welcome except those allergic to bee or wasp stings. A thirty-minute session is $35; an hour runs $60. CONCERT PICK OF THE WEEKDENVER POST: Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, with Angel Olsen - this Thursday and Friday night at Red Rocks.By JOHN WENZEL | email@example.com | The Denver PostApril 28, 2023 at 6:00 a.m.Jason Isbell's voice can be a strapping, mournful thing, muscular and dripping with vulnerability as he chronicles his life in song. And on this day, it's still waking up.“This time of year I drink my black coffee cold so I can get it down quicker,” the 44-year-old singer-songwriter said over the phone from his Nashville porch on Monday. “I've spent so many years working late at night that it makes it hard for me to get on with normal life. It's tough, you know? But I think it's tough no matter how you do it.”Isbell's family and acclaimed music career test his resolve while giving him motivation to stay sober and productive. He has won a quartet of Grammy Awards since 2018 — about a decade after getting kicked out of his former alt-country band, Drive-By Truckers, for drinking and drugs In the HBO Max documentary “Music Box: Jason Isbell — Running with Our Eyes Closed,” which was released on April 7, we're afforded a close-up on his life as he records the album “Reunions” with his band, the 400 Unit. His intimate musical and romantic partnership with wife Amanda Shires (who is an acclaimed solo artist herself), his love of his daughter Mercy Rose, his past divorce, and the shock of the pandemic are all there in vivid cross-section.“If you're a recording artist or entertainer with any kind of success, you don't want to spend too much time looking back,” said Isbell, who was born in Green Hill, Ala., to a 17-year-old mother. “It's a self-centered way of living. But one thing I was surprised by watching the (documentary) is that I'd forgotten how hard those old days were, growing up where I did and having addiction issues. It was nice to see but painful to watch, that all of this was real and really happened to me, even if it's long in the rearview.”Isbell will headline Red Rocks Amphitheatre May 3 and 4 with the 400 Unit, on tour for their new album “Weathervanes,” to be released June 9. The lead single “Death Wish” has already been covered by Jack White and featured on “American Idol.” Isbell's melodies channel Americana, folk, country, and rock and roll. His lyrics are cutting, urgent, and full of visceral metaphors. On “Death Wish,” he sings:“I wanted action, she wanted answers / Sunrise with the dealers and the dancers / It takes a whole lot of medicine to feel like a little kid.”Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit With Angel Olsen, Two shows, May 3 and 4, at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Tickets at axs.com, and I think Adam may have an extra still, too. Welp, that's it for me! From Denver I'm Sean Diller.

“Time On Earth” In the early ‘80s, the British born singer-songwriter Pete Astor was the frontman for the band The Loft and when that outfit split up, he formed the Weather Prophets who put out a trio of albums including the fabulous Diesel River and the miraculous Judges Juries and Horsemen. Astor kept the dream alive after the Prophets split up, emerging with fabulous projects like The Wisdom of Harry and Ellis Island Sound. Currently, Astor is a senior lecturer at the University of Westminster, and in 2014, his book on Richard Hell and the Voidoids' Blank Generation, was published as part of Bloomsbury's ongoing 33⅓ series on seminal rock and roll albums. Over the years Astor hasn't stopped putting out solo albums which are practically peerless. From Submarine to One For The Ghost to his outstanding new one Time On Earth, Pete Astor remains one of the most compelling figures in modern music. He's quietly released a discography that's redolent with thought, lyrical dexterity, observational smarts and hooks galore. Astor is one of the most listenable artists out there. Of Time On Earth, Dave Cantrell of Stereo Embers Magazine wrote, “…it's punchy in the melodic, reassuring way we've come to expect, somehow poignant and unsentimental in equal measure, it's a worthy addition to an already-bursting canon of sublime pop jewels.” www.peteastor.com www.bombshellradio.com www.stereoembersmagazine.com www.embersarts.com www.alexgreenonline.com Twitter: @emberseditor IG: @emberspodcast Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Today you have the pleasure of learning more about Slade Cleaves. He picked these five records: SWORDFISHTROMBONES – TOM WAITS NEBRASKA - BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN LIBRARY OF CONGRESS RECORDINGS - WOODY GUTHRIE MISSION OF THE CROSSROADS PALMS - STEVE FORBERT DEAR DANGER- BILLY HARVEY Joseph Hudak of Rolling Stone Country calls Cleaves “a master storyteller, one influenced not by the shine of pop-culture but by the dirt of real life.” While he released a handful of recordings during the early '90s, he gained significant notice with No Angel Knows, which was released on Rounder's Philo subsidiary in 1997. Joined by former Lucinda Williams guitarist and producer Gurf Morlix, and combined his interest in folk songs, early rock and roll, and traditional country music into an amalgamation of styles becoming known at that time as Americana. After reading in Rolling Stone about Bruce Springsteen's inspirations for the Nebraska album, he climbed into his parents' attic to rediscover the treasure trove of albums which he recalled hearing as a child – Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry - and which became his guide to becoming a stellar songwriter. After signing with Jimmy LaFave's Music Road Records, he issued Everything You Love Will Be Taken Away (2009, featuring liner notes from fan Stephen King), the two-disc Sorrow & Smoke: Live at the Horseshoe Lounge (2011), and Still Fighting the War (2013), produced by beloved Austin guitarist Scrappy Jud Newcomb. The album was praised as "one of the year's best albums" by American Songwriter and "carefully crafted, . . . songs about the struggles of the heart in hard times" by the Wall Street Journal. The New York Daily News called his music "a treasure hidden in plain sight," while the Austin Chronicle declared, "there are few contemporaries that compare. He's become a master craftsman on the order of Guy Clark and John Prine." I would like to mention that there are no advertisements in this podcast.

John Cale grew up a promising viola player in Wales. He moved to New York to study classical music. There, Cale met Lou Reed and formed one of the most influential acts in rock music: "The Velvet Underground." Their time together was short, but John Cale was only getting started. He became a producer and made some killer debut albums for artists like The Stooges and Patti Smith. It's the kind of resume that guarantees you a place in the rock and roll history book. But that's only one side of John Cale's work. He's also an accomplished, trailblazing solo musician with almost 20 albums on his own. When we spoke to John Cale on Bullseye in 2016, he reflected on his more than 50 years in music and his time in the Velvet Underground. Plus, what it was like to produce for artists like the Stooges and Patti Smith.
