    2021 Ep.04 - My Wonderful Mother

    2021 Ep.04 - My Wonderful Mother

    Sometimes we forget that a person we have known for a very long time has a backstory. We see them as what they are...in this moment...as the person right in front of us. But behind every person we meet there is so much more. We have no idea the places they've visited or the challenges they have faced or the dreams they were pursuing when life took a different turn. It certainly adds credence to Allen Saunders' widely misappropriated adage that "Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans."


    And some of the best stories we know are of those who took those turns and made something beautiful out of them. Which is the perfect phrase to describe Wendy's mom, Phyllis. In this episode, we meet Wendy's mother and hear about a couple turns that shaped her beautiful life.

    2021 Ep.03 - Erin and Bennett

    "She's out of your league," they said. Some guys, though, are either brave or stupid and just don't let attitudes like those get in their way. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Bennett. Every married couple has their "how-we-got-together" story and this one makes us smile. A lot. So join us as we take a walk down Jayhawk Boulevard with Erin and Bennett On Carlson Drive.

    2021 Ep.02 - The Best People God Ever Created

    2021 Ep.02 - The Best People God Ever Created

    The people we love are often the centerpieces of the stories we share. And our love continues to tell their stories even when they live far away or they are no longer with us on this earth. Some people, much like a really good story, are impossible to forget – especially when they are the best people God ever created. In this episode of On Carlson Drive, we revisit generations past and hear tales of football glory and pheasant-bearing suitors when we meet Wendy's 98 year-old grandpa.

    2021 Ep.01 - My Car

    The cars we drive are like songs we sing as they mark a time and a place in our lives. And in many cases, they are like a second home or a place of refuge for us. In this first episode of season two of On Carlson Drive, we explore the meaning of our automobiles and the roles they have played as yet another character in the stories we tell.

Comfort Food for your Spirit

When the world gets heavy, which can be a frequent occurrence these days, it’s such a pleasure to listen to this heartfelt series. A gifted storyteller, Wendy has a great talent of including listeners in her reminiscing. I love these stories, and cannot get enough of them!

Delightful, fun podcast!

This podcast reminds me of all those times my family sits around the table reminiscing about all of our own family stories! If you have ever done this with your family, you will be delighted by the stories Wendy tells! I anxiously look forward to every episode!

Great story telling

A delightful look back at the ups and downs of life. Whether the story is about something as silly as a toddler’s thoughts, the musings of a teenager or their beautiful love story, they are common enough for me to think of a similar story of my own. Wendy, and Randy, have voices that are pleasant to listen to, and Wendy’s ability to use her words to for pictures in your mind as if you were there with her is exceptional. I look forward to each new episode for a story that is a bright spot in my day.
