    A Little Town Called Hiller And A Big Deal for Pharma

    A Little Town Called Hiller And A Big Deal for Pharma

    I'd never heard of Hiller before.  It's just outside of Brownsville.  A little town about an hour south of Pittsburgh.   And the home of the world's largest podcast network dedicated to the pharmaceutical industry.  Todd Eury, founder of the Pharmacy Podcast Network, sat down with me at his flagship studio in Hiller to talk about how the idea evolved, and why he chose to stay in Western Pennsylvania.

    Eric McKenna and His Project

    Eric McKenna and His Project

    One of the great things about Pittsburgh is that you can always find someone who thinks a lot like you do, but differently... if you know what I mean.   So... my wife, Lauren, the Pittsburgh Property Diva, had a radio show for a little while on News Radio 1020 KDKA.   I would live stream it on Facebook.   In doing so, I discovered Eric McKenna, another realtor in Pittsburgh, live streaming his radio show on WBPV in Beaver County.   Oh, well... I guess we weren't first to the party, like I had hoped.

    Fast forward a couple years, and I've been following Eric's journey into the podcasting and video podcasting world.   I noticed the Eric McKenna Project on YouTube, and I just had to watch...  now here's the "think a lot like you, but differently" part...   The focus of Eric's podcast and video show are similar to mine... telling the stories of Pittsburghers...  but different in this way:  Eric's show is recorded in Boogie Street Studios, a passion project born from a previous life's venture into custom guitar making - Boogie Street Guitars.  Every part of his studio reflects Eric and his journey.   And it's also long-form.  Eric encourages his guests to take as long as they want to tell their story.  And it works.

    We spent a good hour talking about Pittsburgh Beautiful in Boogie Street Studios.   Then we took a short walk down the street in Coraop0lis to Anchor and Anvil Coffee, and the host became the guest.   Eric is originally from Coraopolis, and in spite of having many opportunities to leave Pittsburgh throughout his career, has decided this is where he belongs.   So, the Eric McKenna Project was born.

    Corona's Are Good With Limes. And nothing else.

    Corona's Are Good With Limes. And nothing else.

    So...  what to do, what to do?   Let's talk about sports.   All the sports that are cancelled or postponed.   So that's what we did.  At the Abbey on Butler Street in Lawrenceville.   As usual.   It's a risky business being sports podcasters!

    Is it a sport? The Sports Porch

    Is it a sport? The Sports Porch

    It seems the Abbey on Butler Street has become our favorite hangout.  Good thing because there's not much to talk about as the sports vortex continues, again.   We discuss a little Steeler's stuff... some hockey, of course, and another EXCITING segment of "Is it a sport, or not".

    Transformation of Dr. Christina Tarantola

    Transformation of Dr. Christina Tarantola

    Transformation.   That’s what Dr. Christina Tarantola hopes to help her clients accomplish.   Much like the transformation she experienced moving from New York City to Pittsburgh.   I met Christina while looking for more interesting Pittsburgher stories to tell, and her path here to Pittsburgh is one that is becoming more common.   Growing up on Long Island, attending school in New York, and moving to Pittsburgh for her career, at the time, as a pharmacist in Pittsburgh.   Now, one of a growing number of women entrepreneurs in Pittsburgh, she has decided to take her life experiences and help others transform their lives.   To become happy, prosperous and productive.   And… to stay right here in Pittsburgh.

    Christina’s story is a fascinating one… one that I am privileged to tell.   As always, I like to leave the story for the guest to tell on the podcast.  So listen up, Pittsburghers…

    You can find out more about Dr. Christina Tarantola and the way she helps women to empower themselves through Transformation Coaching right here!

    Thank you, Christina, for your energy and passion… and thank you for helping to make Pittsburgh Beautiful!

    The Sports Porch - What is a Sport? What ain't a Sport?

    The Sports Porch - What is a Sport? What ain't a Sport?

    The vortex is in full swing.   We're down at the Abbey on Butler Street on Lawrenceville on a busy night.   We talk a little Pens slide, some XFL, and finally settle on a debate about whether or not bowling, badminton and others are really sports.
