this time with Patrick Bet-David, who’s got a big audience.
I had a very positive and hopeful conversation with Spike Cohen on his podcast, “My Fellow Americans”. We discussed how I turned my life around (more than once) and how others (particularly “returning” citizens) can learn to design their own lives for the better.
We talked about Constructing Hope and how I hope they will inspire the creation of many more such organizations.
And a lot more.
and we will probably launch Episode One with Shannon Monihan mid-next week. For now, if you get a moment follow this link to the “podcast interviews” section of my website to hear some interviews I’ve done:
Shannon Monihan is with Dave Dahl and David Bentley.
“Delighted to have been David Dahl’s [aka Killer Dave]first guest on his podcast Against the Grain. David has always had my back on social media, during what has been a curious few years, here in Portland, Oregon. Political landscape aside, this conversation is centric around JOY.In our conversation, David and I discuss what it’s like to dream something up and actually bring it to fruition. We also touch on what it takes to pick yourself up, and maintain a positive attitude, after you’ve been knocked down. I’m always amazed at the inspiring people I have met in my career. I have had a long and robust one. I enjoy working and as Dave and I discuss, it’s important to not relying on others and there is satisfaction, in doing things on your own.You’ll find his, and my podcast Red Frog: Stop Listen Shoot on @talkcastpdx.” – Shannon Monihan
Amazing guest, Shannon Monihan of Red Frog Team and much more. Easy to interview…could’ve gone for hours cuz she’s got plenty to say. I’ll be posting the final product soon. Wednesday, we are doing the Sheila Hamilton interview—this will be another great one. I’m excited and hopeful that this show will be a difference maker.
with inspiration achiever, Shannon Monihan. It will be available to listen to very soon. I can’t wait!
I’m oh-so-close to debuting my own show, Against the Grain. I’ll be interviewing successful people who got there the hard way, kinda like me.
I’m seriously considering a portion of the attached song (which I wrote in 2005 but updated in 2009 or 2010 with producer Michael Rizzo) to open the show under introductory words. Check out the song and video, and subscribe to my YouTube if you like (I would appreciate it!).
What do you think?
I believe you’ll find Citizen Smith (Ken Smith) entertaining and educational. Check us out at www.talkcastpdx.com and get the app!
I will have my own show, Against the Grain coming along soon. Stay tuned.
