    The Universal Language of Music with Asher Laub
    Join Asher and me in a delightful conversation about his journey as a professional violinist who breaks with traditional boundaries and forges new paths. Asher shares about his creative process, the power of improvisation, and his vision about music as a common language that can bridge differences and form new connections between people.
    Asher Laub's Bio:
    Asher began classical violin training at the tender age of 2 and had already performed with the Buffalo philharmonic by age 13.

    Asher’s expertise in trans-genre improvisation has led him to a career as a soloist in demand, performing at venues such as Madison Square Garden, Hammerstein Hall, Lincoln Center, the Jacob Javitz Center and across four continents.  Asher has also been featured on PBS, and has made headlines on CNN, WABC, and NBC and many other major news sources.  

    Asher is known for breakdancing across stages with his LED electric violin, in addition to performing as a DJ violinist, bringing his experience as a live performer and technical prowess as an audio editing and mixing guru to countless clubs and stages across the country.

Every week, for over a year, I was incredibly lucky to sit down with people who bravely, determinedly, and passionately live creative lives.

    Inventing Games with Kevin Carrol

    Pickles, penguins and dice! Join me and Kevin Carrol, tabletop game inventor, professional speaker and facilitator, for a lively conversation about the power of creative game play. Kevin shares his personal journey into the world of game invention, gives tips for getting started if you have an idea for a tabletop game, and we talk about effective and persuasive communication too.

    Kevin Carroll's Bio
    Kevin Carroll is a professional speaker, trainer and facilitator. His passion is helping his clients think creatively and communicate persuasively. In other words, he teaches people how to be better problem solvers and how to get their message across clearly, concisely, and confidently. Top shelf clients such as Merrill Lynch, Unilever and Cisco Systems (to name just a few) have been tapping into Kevin’s expertise for many years. Repeat business is his hallmark.

    Kevin’s style is upbeat and engaging. His programs are interactive and real world. Not only do participants walk away with better skills, they walk away feeling better about themselves.

    Kevin's strengths include his ability to connect with his clients, assess their talents, and coach them in a way that causes change to stick. Results are immediate and often quantifiable. Testimonials and success stories abound.

    Prior to building his own practice, Kevin worked in advertising for 17 years and managed accounts for national brands such as Ocean Spray and Seagram. Kevin earned his MBA from Fordham University and he is a Past-President of the Connecticut Chapter of the National Speakers Association. (He also admits to having had a short and dubious career as a standup comic.)

    He lives in Connecticut with his wife, Mary, and their two children. When he's not speaking, he invents toys and games. And when he's not inventing toys and games, he performs customized comedy roasts at national sales meetings.

Story and Horse review by NKNapier

Hilary Adams does something I really admire and cherish - she brings ideas from very different worlds together and makes something fresh, new and engaging. Who would think that horses and stories could blend but they do and she does the same with her guests. She’s able to find people who bring new ways of looking at ideas and, through her insightful questions, she’s able to build on those ideas. She’s got a gift, and it’s a treat to hear it in action.

Great listen!

Hilary is a great podcast host, keeping the conversation moving while still allowing it to go deep when warranted. Both she and her podcast are definitely one of the good ones.

Ravi Raman ,

A weekly dose of creativity and inspiration!

What I love about the story and horse podcast is the authentic and real nature of the conversations. Through discussions with artists, entrepreneurs and everyday interesting people, this show helps me connect with and realize the creative spark in myself, while being inspired by a natural creativity that people unfold in their lives.
