    #40 - Gus Alivizatos

    Gus Alivizatos, formerly a Baltimore attorney, moved to Maine several years ago for a quieter, calmer life with a greater connection to nature. He now operates Lucky Lou's food truck, offering damn good Greek cuisine throughout Southern Maine. 
    Gus tells about his journey from lawyer to food truck entrepreneur, detailing why slinging gyros has offered a better life than slinging real estate contracts.

    #36 - Michael Hillard Ph.D. | Change the Battery

    Michael Hillard is a professor of economics at the University of Southern Maine. His scholarly work focuses on macroeconomics, labor history, and the production of food under capitalism. He joins the pod to breakdown the current economic fiasco of Covid-19 induced mass unemployment, the federal government response, and what more should be done to fully remedy the situation. 
    Hillard has a new book - Shredding Paper: The Rise and Fall of Maine's Mighty Paper Industry - slated for release in 2021. You should probably stop what you're doing right now and set a reminder to buy it when it drops. Anything less would be foolish beyond belief - and a mistake to hang over your head for the rest of your life.

    #35 - Kerry Landry | Maine Potcast

    Kerry Landry is a cannabis enthusiast, artist, and one of the hosts of the Maine Potcast, a podcast spotlighting growers, caregivers, and happenings within the Maine cannabis industry and culture.
    I, Cameron, barely prepared for this episode at all and let Kerry and I’s common appreciation for the green goddess guide us through the podcast.
    We ended up talking about the Maine Potcast, the nefarious actions of the Wellness Connection, a writer we both love who if I named here would get us both cancelled immediately, and best practices for parents using cannabis. As Kerry says, he probably would have never played such an in-depth, multi-hour reenactment of WWII with his son without the assistance of the magic herb.
