    S1E12: Lolo talks to Dad about magic, why humans SUCK, and worldbuilding.

    It's been a long time since we've done a show, and being stuck home for the 4th month in a row, Jami Taylor (Lolo) asked if we could start doing the podcast again.

    "Sure, why not," I said, "what would you like to talk about?"

    "I'll let you know once we get talking," she tells me.

    Right. Okay then, let's do this.

    We talked about magic, magic systems, races in fiction,...we explore Jami's own fictional world for a spell while she asks questions about worldbuilding. We also touch on Wanted Hero, our new online world being built, and our family plans to build a subscription-based fictional dream come true for readers.

    S1E11: Dad and Asia talk about Food, Facts and WHY Politicians are EVIL

    S1E11: Dad and Asia talk about Food, Facts and WHY Politicians are EVIL

    In todays episode we have a great treat, because my daughter Asia Bailey (recently married) stopped by the house, so I pulled her into the office to have a long conversation, on the record.

    It's fun to chat with my intelligent children, especially when they're married, because I can usually get them to criminalize themselves.

    No such luck today. Instead, we had a fantastic discussion about life, communications, taking responsibility for our actions, parenting, her relationship with mom and frankly, that I'm a cool dad.

    Okay, she didn't actually SAY I was cool, but I could see it in her face.

    It was a great conversation.

    S1E10: Life's Broken. Buy Immortality for $50

    In today's episode, Jaime and Jami talk about Lolo's weekend at the Teen Author Boot Camp...and where she placed in the First Chapter Contest.

    Then the show goes a bit nuts...

    Almost falling out of the shower in laughter earlier this week, Jaime decided to try something he's never heard an author do before...and it's working. 

    He's SELLING IMMORTALITY.

    No, you heard correctly. Jaime found a way to let you live forever for as little as 50 bucks.

    To raise funds for expanding Wanted Hero into an interactive world, he decided to let fans get in on the action. Fans can now buy bragging rights by becoming a fictional character they can show their friends and family!

    S1E9: Cake and Assassination (we talk about movies)

    In this weeks episode, Jami and her dad talk about the movies they've enjoyed from 2018. 

    Jami points out her fathers memory loss issues, while Jaime rants on Disney for ruining his childhood memories by destroying the characters / storylines of the Marvel and Star Wars properties.

    (He really is disturbed about it.)

    What movies do YOU like of late...or do you think Hollywood needs to grow a brain and make something original and unique for a change?

    LILF S1E8 - Encouraging Talents (with Simon) and Lolo sings an original song with Carley!

    LILF S1E8 - Encouraging Talents (with Simon) and Lolo sings an original song with Carley!

    Sorry for the two-day delay, but my son showed up from out of state and the house was SO happy to see him, we spaced the podcast!

    Simon joins me on today's episode, where we talk about talents and how they should be encouraged. 

    Lolo shares her song writing talent by playing her ukulele while singing harmony with her little sister, Carley.

    Simon and I learn that sometimes the Universe opens doors to opportunities so we can stretch and grow in our talents, AND...that we shouldn't drink Pepsi while doing podcasts, because it creates background noise through vibration! LOL

    We also touch on Worldanvil, with is one of many new tools we will be using to build Wanted Hero into a dynamic new interactive experience for readers...which can be supported through BUYING YOUR OWN IMMORTALITY (seriously).

    Please consider reading our story and sharing it with those you know.

    Thank You.

    LILF-S1E7: Jaime visits with his 4 year old son and grandson

    LILF-S1E7: Jaime visits with his 4 year old son and grandson

    I wanted to take the opportunities when they present themselves--to sit down with the little people in my life and have conversations in front of the mic.

    By 'little people', I literally mean small, young, as in my kids and grandkids.

    Not always professional, but always fun, I decided to has a moment with my youngest child Roman and his best friend, who happens to be my grandson, Alvin (with permission form his mom).

    It's a laid back conversation, lots of laughter and I think both of the boys had fun making a podcast show with their dad and poppa.

    Hope you get a chuckle like I did.
