    The Weight of the World with Andrew Shanahan

    The Weight of the World with Andrew Shanahan

    Andrew "Shan" Shanahan knows about the weight of the world we all feel and he's written a cracking good book about it.

    His first novel Before and After is the story of a 601 lb. man who is trapped inside his home as a pandemic rages outside. Shanahan has been a journalist for over two decades, writing for some of the biggest newspapers in the world. He founded an organization in 2014 called MAN v FAT which has since helped over four million men worldwide to lose weight and get healthy. When he stepped back from MAN v FAT, he returned to his first love: writing. Alex chats with Shan about the book, the state of the world, his take on writing, and his acclaimed work to help overweight men.

    Crossing into Alaskan Adventure with Russell Heath

    Crossing into Alaskan Adventure with Russell Heath

    One thing Alex has learned knocking around the planet lo these many decades is that there are no good guys, and perhaps not as many bad guys as you might think. People are, instead, often defined by the lines people cross to achieve their aims. That’s why today we're excited to venture into the Last Frontier of Alaska, where author and explorer Russell Heath has set "Rinn’s Crossing," a high-stakes, high-octane dive into the gritty political battles that have ripped Alaska apart since statehood.

    Learn more about Russell Heath: https://russellheathauthor.com/

    Buy the book here.

    Check out a great talk with Russell Heath at the Explorers Club here.

    Lee Matthew Goldberg and the Frozen Man

    Lee Matthew Goldberg and the Frozen Man

    During this time of quarantine and isolation due to Covid-19, many have felt loneliness, a feeling of being stuck in time, as well as separation and loss of loved ones. Lee Matthew Goldberg’s fourth book, “The Ancestor” explores the emotional journey of the protagonist Wyatt trying to get back to a life that is familiar. On today's show, Goldberg talks about writing the non-stop thriller that leaves readers in the same haze of desire, uncertainty, and fear as the main character whose story begins when his amnesia-dazed mind encounters someone who looks just like him. 

    Suddenly he is flooded with memories of a life he is convinced he has lived. But the images take him back to 1898’s Alaskan Gold Rush from 120 years ago. He longs for either the life he once had and the love he experienced – or obsesses for a new life that isn’t his own. It’s a book that makes each of us question our identity, heritage, and fate.

Always Interesting

This podcast focuses on the different dimensions of creativity through interviews and Mr Greenwood’s personal experiences. The shows are fun and inspiring thanks to Greenwood’s masterful interviewing and storytelling skills. He is fascinated by the people he interviews and that makes us want to learn more about him. His personal story episodes are just as interesting and often as chilling as the best fiction. I look forward to each new episode.
