The Everyday Life Of A Concert Tour Truck Driver With Upstaging
Have you ever wondered what life is like when you're trucking for a concert tour? You're about to get an inside look from someone who's been doing exactly that for over a decade.
In this episode, I had a chance to talk with Deanna, a former driver for Upstaging. After more than 13 years of trucking with the tours, she's now wearing the hat of driver recruiter. It's rare to find a recruiter with that much driving experience, and with the same company she's now recruiting for.
You'll find a more detailed description of the lifestyle in this article at TruckingPodcast.com.

Jeff Bermant is the founder and CEO of Cocoon. I believe we've arrived at a point where people are ready for a platform that is honest about where their income comes from and gives up a cut of the action.
Steve Sommers Rings In The New Year With Overnight Drive Radio
Everyone's asking, what happened to Steve Sommers, and where can we find his show? Let's let Steve tell you himself.

After listening to the show for over 20 years, I finally had an opportunity to talk with Mr. Sommers and catch up on his plans for 2021.
