#9 – NEWS – Shushannah Walshe – 2014-12-23

Shushannah Walsh Block

Raised in south Florida, Shushannah Walshe has become a strong, driven presence on the national political scene.  She has previously reported for Fox News and the Daily Beast; but it was her co-authorship of “Sarah From Alaska: The Sudden Rise and Brutal Education of a New Conservative Superstar” with Scott Conroy that propelled her into the spotlight.  The book relates the aftermath of McCain’s surprise pick of Palin as his running mate and how the Palins navigated the sudden attention and scrutiny.

She has seen behind the scenes of the political curtain and lived to tell about it; and in this podcast, Shush shares what it’s like working in the political arena, being a writer and reporter, how she has accomplished her goals, and what she is most looking forward to with her career.

So, sit back and enjoy this very interesting and insightful interview!

#8 – MUSICIAN – Cohen Robinson, Patrick Watkins, & The Trufe – 2014-12-20

Cohen Robinson, Patrick Watkins, & The Trufe Block

This super-short podcast is my first multi-guess-cast and features three extremely talented up-and-coming hip-hop artists, Cohen Robinson, Patrick Watkins, & The Trufe!  Cohen and The Trufe (a.k.a., Myles Robinson) are brothers; but, they have been friends with Patrick since they were kids.  So, they consider themselves all brothers.

Whether working together on their group or doing their own individual projects, Cohen, Patrick, and The Trufe always support each other—and tonight was just another example.  Cohen Robinson had one a singing contest that gave him the opportunity to open for the Vanilla Ice Block Party, and Patrick and The Trufe collaborated with him on the performance.

This podcast was recorded backstage right after their set, where it was crazy loud, energetic, and surreal.  What an honor to be able to speak with and get to know a little bit about these guys after such an awesome moment in their lives!

Enjoy!

#6 - BLOGGER – Aaron Wormus (aGuyonClematis) - 2014-12-06

Aaron "aGuyOnClematis" Wormus Block

I kicked off this second series of the Curve the Cube podcast with a guy who brings us sooo much great inside-track south Florida content!  Aaron Wormus created the Twitter handle, aGuyOnClematis, to chronicle the development of the West Palm Beach waterfront—and it has turned into SO much more!

On this podcast, Aaron talks about why he brings us so many daily glimpses into the goings-on in West Palm Beach—with nearly exclusive insight into the cultural and entertainment hotspot that is Clematis Street.  He divulges one of his inside tips to getting his info, shares his favorite spots, and makes it clear that, if it’s going on on Clematis, it’s going on in his Twitter account.

And, BONUS: this podcast ended with a total surprise podcast crash by the Pizza Girls themselves, Jennifer and Phoebe!  This was definitely a super fun podcast!!

Enjoy!!!

#5 – CTCKids – AUTHOR & ENTREPRENEUR – Houston Gunn - 2014-11-25

Houston Gunn Block

This fifth episode of the podcast is the second “phone”-cast, and features young author and rising entrepreneur, Houston Gunn!!!  Houston is just 17 years old, and has already authored TWO books on reaching for success, started his own publishing house, met Donald Trump, and has a goal of graduating high school as a millionaire!  He’s dabbled in real estate and private lending, while also moved to Nashville from Seattle in order to cultivate his musical career.  Have I mentioned that he has yet to graduate from HIGH SCHOOL?!?!?!  INCREDIBLE!!!

The amount of insight this kid has already developed is PHENOMENAL, and he has some really choice pieces of advice for others looking to succeed at making their own way.  He talks motivation, hard work, overcoming fear, and pursuing your passions.  There is just so much great advice gleamed from this young man in this podcast, its awe-inspiring; and, whether young or old, everyone can learn something from this guy!

I am so jazzed for all the possibilities that this podcast has inspired, too.  This kid is so impressive, I’m now considering producing a special series of “next generation” podcasts for other amazing young up-and-comers.  There is something particularly exciting about their energy and effervescence!!

Enjoy!

#3 – NEWS  - Jay Cashmere - 2014-11-12

Jay Cashmere Block

Wow! Jay Cashmere sure brought a lot of positivity and great energy to this podcast! Talk about a fun, sweet guy. Jay has been a part of south Florida’s news scene for nearly 14 years now (Happy Almost Anniversary, Jay!), and is currently an anchor for both WPTV News Channel 5 and WFLX Fox 29.

In our chat, Jay gives some really inspirational insights into how he pursued his career and was able to break into such a huge, hot market.  He is so appreciative of the opportunities that being a newsman in south Florida have brought him, takes every opportunity to give back, and shies away from the “local celebrity” label. His love of the news led him to an opportunity to explore his other passion—aviation; but, what happened that day is something you just have to hear for yourself!!

Enjoy this high-energy, insightful podcast and catch Jay weeknights as the anchor of WPTV (NBC 5) at 5:30 and WFLX (Fox 29) at 10pm.  Also, he also usually has a segment on his co-anchor, Shannon Cake’s, show, The Now, which airs on WPTV weekdays at 4pm.

Thanks, Jay!!!

#2 – ENTERTAINMENT - Andrea Ocampo – 2014-10-25

Adrea Ocampo Block

This podcast was sooo much fun to record! Andrea really came to have fun!! She has been in the entertainment industry for 15 years, and has had a breadth of experience and successes. She is currently (amongst many other things) the arena host and reporter for the Florida Panthers and is spreading her wings in the world of acting. Andrea has touched just about every corner of the entertainment industry, and now is focused on growing her company and relaunching her blog, Media-Gypsy, which focuses on helping others pursue THEIR dreams.

We sat down with some wine, and she got REAL!!  Andrea talks about her entry into the industry through dancing and cheering for the Miami Dolphins, the struggles of coming up, and her future goals. We got into the pressures that women face in particular in entertainment, the pitfalls that people in general often face, and what it really takes to keep the gears running toward success.

She was a delight, seriously funny, and allowed me the opportunity to totally geek out with her about horror movies and zombies. Simply stated, Andrea was SO MUCH FUN, and I can say I’ve walked away from this podcast with a new friend!!!

This episode of Curve the Cube is sponsored by D’Or Fashion, a south Florida-styled, high-fashion boutique store with several locations throughout the Miami area. Follow them on Instagram to find their special promo codes!

#1 - RADIO - Kevin Rolston of the KVJ Show - 2014-10-15

Kevin Rolston

This is the PREMIER episode of Curve the Cube, and in this episode, we feature Kevin Rolston of the KVJ Show—a big dog of morning radio here in south Florida!  I feel privileged to call Kevin both a friend and mentor.  So, I am very grateful that he graced the Curve the Cube podcast’s pilot episode!

And, Kevin really brings it!  After surprising me with a bit of beat boxing, Kevin gets into the evolution of radio in his life (including just how he broke into the biz), some hilarious coming-of-age tales (which show why he needs to call his mother more often), and the hit to his chest that changed his life.  He also talks about life in and on radio, adding a story that really made me tear up.

I must apologize in advance, though.  Muddle through the moments of bad sound quality mixed with my obnoxious laugh.  It’s worth it!  There are so many gems in this podcast!!

This episode of Curve the Cube is sponsored by the KVJ Show on 97.9 WRMF right here in Palm Beach County. Tune in to hear Kevin, Virginia, and Jason’s hysterical morning banter and bits that bring the funniest content in radio entertainment by and for south Florida.  Listen to them weekday mornings from 6-10.  They live here, too!

Promo Code Info:

Head to LittleSmiles.org to order your next KVJ Show or KVJ Nation t-shirt.  Enter the promo code “CurvedSmiles” now through November 10th and receive 10% off.  All proceeds go to Little Smiles of Florida!
