Podcasting

In 2009 my drive to work expanded from twenty minutes to 45 when my office moved.  I needed something to fill that time and I found podcasts.  Listening to them became my main source of entertainment and information whether during my commute or chores around the house.  In 2018, I made my first attempt at podcasting and have self-produced multiple series since then.  Below you can see a list of the shows I'm currently working on.  

Letters from the Past

 

My grandfather was in World War II.  As a child I was fascinated by the war.  In elementary school every book I checked out from the library had to do with one of two subjects, Greek Mythology or the war.  My grandparents thought someday I'd combine my love of history and the fantastic and become a writer.  They left me all of the memorabilia my grandfather had from the war and additional family items which he collected.  I always thought exploring this would be a task for my retirement but I decided not to wait.

I began transcribing my grandfather's letters.  You can take a look at them here.  Ultimately I decided to share them in a podcast and Letters from the Past was born.  It's available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and additional platforms. 

 

I have produced multiple seasons focused on first hand correspondence ranging from my grandfather's experience in WW2 to the search for a cure for Parkinson's Disease.
