Loving the Cledus episode…

So much fun! And full of good, deep moments, stories that could only be told by folks who’ve been in the game. A new fave.

Brian Vander Ark

I’m listening to the Brian Vander Ark episode right now. You never know if you were just talking to yourself or not by writing one of these out but I figured I’d let it rip. This is one of the most underrated podcasts I have in my regular rotation library and always makes for a good listen. It’s very rare when you can actually share a story about a guest on the podcast. One of my teachers when I was a freshman in high school was a good friend of Brian Vander Ark’s. We had a talent show at our high school with most everyone putting a band together to play it. He was able to get Brian to close out the show with an acoustic show as well as giving a speech to the crowd. It’s been over 15 years but I still remember how nice and positive of a person he was. It’s nice how things like that stick with you as life goes on. Marty bring a very talented and positive person made for a very fitting episode. Reach out to Theo Von next and get him on the show! He is a Tennessee boi now. GangGang. 🙅‍♂️
