    Episode 38 | Garrett Hollowell from the band Dead Words

    Episode 38 | Garrett Hollowell from the band Dead Words

    Hello phriends! We are mixing it up a little this week because my guest, Garrett Hollowell, is in a punk band called Dead Words. How is this relevant to Jimmy Buffett you say? Well I am glad you asked. They just released a new EP called Patron Saints of Paradise Vibes that basically answers the question of what it would sound like if Jimmy Buffett wrote punk rock songs. It even has a killer cover of Margaritaville! We talk about Garrett's experiences listening to Jimmy Buffett, the emotional stories behind the songs on this EP, the similarities between the punk scene and the parrot head scene, and how Jimmy Buffett himself is punk rock. Trust me, you do not want to miss this fascinating and educational (at least to me, because I didn't know much about punk before) interview!

    The charity Garrett Picked for this episode is Dallas Hope Charities and you can find out more about the organization here: https://www.dallashopecharities.org/about/

    Episode 37 | Me! (Danny Lynn interviews me on Tiki Man Radio)

    Episode 37 | Me! (Danny Lynn interviews me on Tiki Man Radio)

    This week we are doing something a little different because I am the guest! Danny from Tiki Man Radio asked if I would be a guest on their Sunday morning live show and I was happy to oblige (even though it was 8am for me)! I had a super fun time and thought it might be an interesting twist on my usual episodes if you got to hear me being interviewed instead of my usual role as the one interviewing people. Be sure to check out my podcast at 7pm est on Mondays on Tiki Man Radio, as well as all the other awesome shows they have got going on! You can also watch the full replay of the live show over on their youtube if you want to see how awesome (j/k) I look at 8am.

    Since I was technically the guest this week I chose a charity to share with you all. Think Wild is a local wild animal rescue and rehab that is new, but already doing amazing things here in Central Oregon. Go check them out at https://www.thinkwildco.org/

    Episode 36 | Anthony Monaco

    Hello phriends, I am back! I am getting settled into my new place and am ready to start putting out episodes again. My guest this week is Anthony Monaco who is a huge Buffett fan with an impressive collection, the head of the ambassador program over at the Back to the Island Society, and just an all around great guy. You are not going to want to miss hearing about all the cool Buffett related items he has accumulated over the years, and all the experiences that go along with them! Seeing as I was out of the game for several weeks, I totally forgot to ask him about a charity for this episode, but I checked with him after the fact and he chose the ASPCA. You can find out more about them here: https://www.aspca.org/

    Episode 35 | Dave McKenney and the Hungry Hard Luck Heroes

    My guest this week is Dave McKenney who is an awesome musician that some of you may know from his original music, or because he has played at many a Parrot Head Club event, but what you may not know is that he has started a new musical duo called Hungry Hard Luck Heroes! This duo covers classic Jimmy Buffett songs and has made some really great music videos that you are definitely going to want to check out. Dave and I chat about all kinds of things in this episode, but we get especially passionate talking about how Jimmy Buffett has inspired us and impacted our lives. So both Dave's band and this episode are kind of one big love letter to Jimmy!

    Dave chose Singing for Change as the charity for this episode. You can find out more information about what they do here: https://www.singingforchange.org/

    Episode 34 | Margarita Chris

    Episode 34 | Margarita Chris

    My guest this week is Margarita Chris and I mean, with a nickname like that, how could I not invite him to be on?! He is a little bit newer of a Jimmy Buffett fan compared to those of us who grew up on it, but has a really funny and unique story about how he got into Jimmy. We also talk about his basement bar, the Parrot Den, Margaritaville frozen concoction makers, going all in on being a parrot head, and how he got his very appropriate nickname. So come join us to find out about all the things that make him Margarita Chris! 

    The charity he chose for this episode's donation from the podcast is Wags Animal Rescue. You can find out more about them here: https://www.wagswaitinganimals.org/
