Curve the Cube - Thanks, Podcasting 2015

Curve the Cube - Thanks, Podcasting 2015 with Libsyn

As many of you may well now know, the purpose of Curve the Cube is to inspire people to pursue their dreams and passions--whether full time, part time, or simply as a hobby.

This is my "love letter" submission to Libsyn's "Thanks, Podcasting" project--a collaboration I am so excited, thankful, privileged, honored, and proud to be a part of!  Curve the Cube started as a small seedling of a concept, and I honestly did not know where I would take it; but, it has turned out to be more of where IT has taken ME!!  While driven to inspire others by interviewing those pursuing their dreams to share how they are doing it, I've realized that I am curving my own cube.  It's been a fantastic journey of meeting new people, professionally networking, and strengthening relationships, and I'm just getting started!

Curve the Cube celebrated it's one-year anniversary last month, and I promise it was just the first of many.

I must give a HUGE thank you to Libsyn, my guests, listeners, and sponsors for all their support!! Please visit my sponsors page for more info on these wonderful people.

See you on the other side of the curve!! Enjoy!

#52 – CTCKids – MUSICIANS – KRUSH - 2015-11-17

KRUSH Kids Band on the Curve the Cube Podcast!!!

To experience a KRUSH show is to feel something akin to a type of harmonic vertigo that you never want to end. Your ears LOVE what they are hearing, but your eyes compute it as too good to be true! A pre-teen classic rock band that oozes with talent, KRUSH consistently prompts double-takes from those who experience them for the first, second, and (often) every time. With individual accolades earned, these bandmates have combined their talents to impress judges and audiences alike, earning them two Battle of the Bands wins, a strong local fan base, and the attention of music legends!

KRUSH consists of:
• Nicholas (Nicky) Rothschild - Lead Guitarist (10)
• Ben Meller - Lead Singer (11)
• Landon Caballero - Bassist (12)
• Tristan Yeagar - Drummer (12)

But, don’t let their ages fool you. These kids, while quintessential roughhousing, fun-loving boys, are also highly committed to their craft—devoting hours each week to their music, the Band, and each other. To know them is to love them; but, to see them perform is to be in pure awe!

Head to their website to find out about their upcoming shows!!

#50 – NIGHTLIFE – Peter Agardy of Saltwater Brewery - 2015-10-27

Peter Agardy of Saltwater Brewery on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Welcome to my 50th episode, Curvists!!! I celebrated this milestone with Renaissance man, Peter Agardy—cofounder of Saltwater Brewery, fine artist, and environmentalist. Peter and I talk about what goes into the making of a craft beer; from the infused ingredients to the barrel the brew is stored in, it’s a real science. Peter described the roots of the brewery and how it got off the ground, all the fun events they plan there—including trivia nights, live music, Sunday brunches, and more. Head to their website to stay on top of their events! As an added bonus, a super yummy food truck is pretty much always parked outside; and, after you taste a brew or two, ask about their Brewery tours. The place is a real experience!!

However, the backbone of the Brewery is not only the creation of craft beer, but also their heart of charity and love of our oceans. Peter shares info on all the charities they support and why/how they give back to our community and environment.

On top of his other great talents, being an artist is in this man’s blood just as much as the salt life and love of craft beer. Peter’s fine art presents super vivid underwater scenes that make you feel transported into a snapshot of the ocean itself. Look it up on his website; while browsing, look for the video of his creating the painting now seen on the Brewery’s Screaming Reels can. So cool!!

After we wrapped up the podcast, Peter gave me a tour of the Brewery, and I got to see firsthand where all the deliciousness is made. This wasn’t captured by audio; but, you can head to the Brewery website and check their tour schedule. Go see it for yourself! At the very end of this episode, you’ll hear him walk me through a tasty flight of four of their craft beers. Mmmmm…

#49 – Multimedia Journalist – Jason Hackett - 2015-10-24

Jason Hackett of WPTV on the Curve the Cube Podcast

What a fun podcast this was with Jason Hackett of WPTV!!! Jason and I yuck it up throughout pretty much the entire thing! We met up at the Vivid Arts App kickoff party for previous guests, EGee Labs, at Le Rendez-vous, and simply had a great time. His spoke very affectionately about every crew he’s worked with, acknowledged that he has a responsibility on air as a black role model, and LOVED (not!) that I found out which fun kids’ spot he worked at in his early years.

We took a pretty serious turn early in the discussion to talk about Corey Jones—the latest case focusing the national discussion of excessive force by police. All of these stories from Zimmerman to Ferguson on forward have hit close to home for both of us; but, now it was actually in our own backyard. His coverage of the peaceful rally of family, friends, and other supporters of Corey Jones was exceptional, and his take on it from his various perspectives was highly insightful.

In the end, he turned the tables on me with a question that lead to a complete and utter GEEK OUT by us both, and I’m still stunned that he knew as much on that topic as I do. So, you’ll have to wait for that little nugget of podcast goodness. But, his facial expressions (and the adult beverage I was sipping on) had me laughing through the entire conversation. It was simply soooo fun!!

One note of correction: I meant to say “Downy,” not Febreeze!! (You’ll know what I mean when it gets there, lol.)
