    80: Horse Jumper of Love on stress-reducing organization

    80: Horse Jumper of Love on stress-reducing organization

    Dimitri Giannopoulos, John Margaris, and Jamie Vadala-Doran are Horse Jumper of Love. Formed in 2013, the Boston, MA-based band has released two full-length records and a demo anthology, and is working on a third LP. They tour often and have shared bills with bands such as Duster, Spirit of the Beehive, and many more. I’m personally a huge fan of their music and was excited to sit down with them.

    Their label, Run For Cover describes their music as: “Like abstract collages, their songs jumble richly detailed scenes and vivid imagery, papering over one moment with the next until each string of seemingly unrelated thoughts coalesces into a breathtaking work of art, one that reveals deep truths about ourselves and our psyches.”

Micah Dailey ,

Fantastic insight and topics

I really enjoy The Process. The topics are interesting, the perspectives are valuable, and Shannon's intervew style is great.

Inspiring.

Shannon hosts inspirational creatives and entrepreneurs that overcome obstacles that sometime seem impossible. Highly motivating.

One of my biggest frustrations, as a business owner, is sometimes people don’t even ask me how I’m doing...just how the business is doing. This podcast lets you in on the personal lives and wellbeing of the creatives. And how to balance that in my daily life (lots of good, deep quotes here!).

I love that Shannon is able to curate such a broad range of information for the listener. If you want to hear the creative, professional, personal, etc. strides of different entrepreneurs, then this is your opportunity. Great content!!
