    Luke Miller - Life as a P.A. on Drake's Music Video, Becoming a Film Maker, and How to Be Yourself No Matter What

    "I'm happy, and I think that's the best thing. I don't know if I would have said that a year ago. As much as I'm almost in the same position, now I appreciate it; I know it, I'm in it, I'm here. I'm just trying to be the best me everyday." - Luke J. Miller, BopCast Today on the show we have my man Luke Miller. Luke is a filmmaker, producer, and director from South Jersey. He's the co-host of the Freelance Network Podcast and Chatting Cinema. He's been featured, worked on, created, and co-created countless short films, music videos, and media.
    Luke and I met through a fellow guest and great friend, Joe Gibbs. He introduced us while at Stockton University where Luke manned the controls in the podcast room, also known as the closet. Luke graciously had me on the Freelance Network Podcast, which he co-hosted until he graduated. From there we became fast friends.
    It's one thing to have a friend pursuing a career in video while you're pursuing a career in audio, but it's something completely different to see them grow over the course of 2 years. When we met we were still in college trying to figure it out. We haven't stopped trying to figure it out, we just happened to carve our paths much deeper since the last time we spoke. Luke works for Oak Leaf Media, a New Jersey-based production company while writing a movie on his own, and shooting freelance films and music videos. Our conversation today encompasses these topics, as well as the small role he had in putting together one of the biggest music videos of the year.

    Tyler Braddock - Founder of The Vault Music Studio on Escaping the 9-5, Achieving 5-Year Goals, and 4 Years as a Small Business Owner

    "You never know, that's the scary part. [But] I didn't even last a full year of working full time before quitting. When I was doing my 9-5, I'd work 6PM to 1AM or so - my real job started after hours. I was projecting my 5 year goals, my 10 year goals. This is pretty close to what I was envisioning at the time. I look back at it 5 years and most of it is aligned with what I wrote down." - Tyler Braddock, on BopCast

    Gabbi Truppi - Founding an Ice Cream Shop at 22, the State of Small Business in Flemington, NJ and the Biggest Lesson You Need to Learn

    Gabbi Truppi - Founding an Ice Cream Shop at 22, the State of Small Business in Flemington, NJ and the Biggest Lesson You Need to Learn

    This is a special episode, being that it's our first on-location BopCast ever. We traveled to Flemington, NJ to interview Gabbi for the second time. Gabbi Truppi is an outlier. She's a young entrepreneur who is pursuing her dreams regardless of the status quo. She embodies the risk-taking, fast-moving characteristics of a young and hungry business owner. I interviewed her for the first time when she was 20 years old and had just launched her ice cream truck, Scoops on Wheels. Now at 22 years old, she founded, Humdoo Ice Cream which is the basis of our interview today.
    After the engine broke down on her infamous truck with countless events booked for her to appear at, she took it as a sign to grow and move forward. Already in the works was her physical location, "Humdoo Ice Cream," on Stangl Road in Flemington, NJ.


    In this episode, we cover what it's like to launch 2 businesses as a young, female entrepreneur, the difference between an ice cream truck and an ice cream shop, and the biggest lesson she's learned by launching this new business. We also spoke about Gabbi's philosophy around ice cream, the meaning of the word Humdoo, and more.




    I had a blast recording this episode in her shop and hope to do many more BopCasts on-location. If you know somebody who would be a great guest, email me at sullybmusic@gmail.com.

    The Manifesting Musician - Country Soul Singer, Amanda Sikoral on Songwriting, Performing, Growing on TikTok and A Live Performance on BopCast

    Amanda Sikoral is a musician that blends singer-songwriter, country and soul into a melodic fusion of hooks, and lyrics that you won't forget. She even performed the chorus for her newest single, "Home," at the end of the podcast. On top of her own music, she's been branded "The Manifesting Musician," for good reason. Her positive, daily TikTok mantras have garnered hundreds of thousands of views, and over 9000 followers on the platforms. She blends songwriting with short, positive affirmations and was pushed to make an entire song out of one after hundreds of people requested it.

I love listening to Sully’s podcast because it’s as real and authentic as they come. He has many creatives and people from different backgrounds who all have amazing insight and perspective to offer. Sully does a tremendous job at guiding the discussion to get the most out of it. You will walk away having taken at least one awesome insight from any of these episodes!

The art of the interview!

I love listening to Ryan’s podcasts mostly because of the style of interview. He allows the guest to fully open up, and doesn’t just have them list their achievements like other hosts. He wants to know the ‘why’, and that’s what I listen for!

SullyBop is the hope for next generation. He’s a good young 21 hustler that will be bigger than GaryVee. You can learn a lot from listening to his podcast! Check out for his music as well.
