4: Interview with a Maddox

In this episode of Fake It, I had the great and powerful +Nick Maddox on. We talked about his move across the country, what convinced him to leave grad school, and our differing opinions on long-distance relationships.

You can find Nick on Twitter @NWAMaddox or read his blog at vodkaandequations.blogspot.com. You can also hear him this week on the Ottawhat? Podcast, which I also co-host.

3: Artist’s Life with Brian Lee

Episode 3 of Fake It contains my conversation with Brian Lee. We had a really great talk about work, life and being an artist. We also talked about starting fresh in a new place, and the challenges and opportunities that presented both of us.

You can follow BL on Twitter @mystical_wizard, and check out sonsofpluto.com to see more from his band. Brian was kind enough to play a little guitar for me while we were together, you’ll find those sprinkled throughout our conversation.

2: Celebrity Encounters (with Damien Broomes)

In this second episode of Fake It, I sat down with my good friend Damien Broomes. We talked about his recent celebrity encounter, exchanged views on success, and thought a lot about what it means to make it and be successful in the world. I think we both learned something!

We talked about:

Thanks very much to Becca for taking such great photos! And Happy Birthday to Becca as well!

Norman Borlaug is the man who saved a billion lives through agriculture who we talk about. He has a Nobel Peace Prize, so it’s not like he’s had no recognition, but he’s far from a household name.

Episode 1: Fake It (with Keegan and Amaan)

On this inaugural episode of Fake It, I chatted with Amaan and Keegan (my wonderful co-hosts from Ottawhat?) about what success means to us as pretty much adults, and about what TV gets them excited. Pumped about this new show!
