I joined Rob Page and Dan Morrison on their Art of the Possible (AotP) podcast. Apparently, I represented Rob (finally) upholding his end of his partnership with Dan, and was his first guest. We talked about media and explore if local media is a potential solve for our fractured, entertainment-driven, mass media and can save the Republic. Rob isn’t hopeful, but I am. I think? Honestly, I was just excited to see myself in 8-bit. Listen here.
It’s been an interesting few weeks for me personally – not in a bad way – so I haven’t had time to put together fully flushed out versions of my blog. However, I still wanted to share a few stories I found interesting from the week. First up is a podcast from Digiday with Morning Brew‘s co-founder and COO Austin Rief. Morning Brew is a digital startup email newsletter (that’s a lot of buzzwords) focusing on business. More importantly, it’s a digital startup that is not reliant on venture funding, something that was a rarity not long ago, but now […]
It’s been kind of a weird week, I haven’t made the time I normally do to put together my weekly blog on the media. My brain is too scattered to put the threads together. Instead of a fully-cook post, I thought I would post some of the more interesting stories I found this week. I’ll do better next week.

I was surprised when I saw Yahoo popping up […]
I recently visited Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia with my family. Although we didn’t see any ghosts, and can’t find any that we captured in our photos, I want to share some of the photos we took while we were there. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but thinking back on it, the visit was a sobering experience. Just knowing that I was walking on ground where God knows what horrors occurred, and now I’m touring it with my family. It gave me chills to think about. We were there for just two hours, more than enough time to see […]
It’s 2019, we’re in the era of fake/false/outright lies news, and somehow major brands still think it’s cute to attempt an April Fools prank. I’m sure some people still like these pranks, otherwise why would brands waste time and money doing them? Still, it feels like the era of peak April Fools was at least five years ago. So on Monday (and Tuesday, and Wednesday …), I found myself dreading every story I read. Waiting to be tricked into liking or sharing something that wasn’t true. Although, now that I type this, this could apply to any post on the […]
