The Standing Still Podcast is exactly that. Standing Still. A moment of clarity. A turning point amidst the chaos of life itself. This podcast provides a moment to gather thoughts, perspective, and direction. The privilege to discuss topics among our lives with the individuals I’m fortunate enough to call my guests. On Standing Still you’ll hear powerful perspectives, you’ll hear laughs that seem to never cease, and you’ll be introduced to the people that generate them. From life-long friends to powerful new relationships, this is Standing Still.
#58 "The No-Holds-Barred Household" Jakob Morgan
Jakob Morgan is an old friend I grew up with as a kid. We revisit old stories of growing up on the same street and what each household brought as a hangout spot. I talk self discipline and a few of the efforts I'm putting forth to improve that front. We get into what Jakob is trying to be the best man he can be. We discuss playing to our strengths vs constantly striving to fix our weaknesses. This episode was a blast. Thanks Jake. Instagram: @standingstillpodcast

Danny Mancera is an old friend that has his own podcast, The Alternate Take.

#55 "The Young American" Forrest Devitt
Forrest Devitt is the creator and owner of The Young American Salon in Orange County California. I invite Forrest on the show to talk, and get a perspective for, small business. We discuss his own upbringing, how he started his salon(s), and the craziness of being a small business owner during the Covid Pandemic. We ponder the lack of small business start-ups by our younger generation. Be sure to check out The Young American Salon at www.theyoungamerican.com or on Insta @theyoungamericansalon
#54 "Oh Jesus Christ" Will Small, Jeff & Josh Williams
Will, Jeff, and Josh are old buddies of mine. We got the chance to catch up and laugh at some old stories. We talk Will's bachelor trip to Vegas earlier in the year and the chaos that ensued. Chaos like waking up on a different hotel floor drunk. We discuss a certain coworker and banter about office pranks. We finish by getting into a vacation to Montana I took a few months back.

#53 "The OG Quickies" Quis Williams
Quis Williams is a guy I would see here and there at various get-togethers with friends. I didn't know him all too well before getting the chance to sit down with him, but I loved the way he carried himself in a room and just his attitude towards life in general. We discuss his upbringing in Chicago and what his move to California was like. We talk acting and his current side hustle (Quickies) selling cookies. They really are THE BEST DAMN COOKIES IN LA.

Dive In, Water’s Warm
A consistently refreshing take on the escape from the blue collar world into a relaxed atmosphere that makes me want to kick my boots off, grab a beer and have a good laugh, while also stimulating my mind in a leisurely manner.
Welcome Back Steven
Arrived at the gym only to find nothing to listen to... only to discover a new Standing Still Episode. Truly a joy as always Steve.
This made me laugh out loud at work. I looked crazy but the “first time” stories, in episode 3, had me cracking up. Fantastic job.
