My podcast explores entertainment culture (nerd, pop, ect),self improvement and philosophy with a touch of whimsy and humor.

This is my 5th year back in the URI Marching Band.  Everyone in the band is so smart and talented.  We work really hard and the results are amazing.  I wish I could post the field shows. I'm honored and thrilled to be part of this incredible organization! Everyone is super talented and dedicated.  I am so grateful for all the memories!!

This show was taped on my iPhone so the quality isn't the best but it's pretty decent.
