015 - @MelissaEslinger (Shine Your Light) 0:00 This episodes begins with a spontaneous little sound design clip I made for the intro to THIS, episode 15, after a SIX month hiatus. An old Chinese man once told me I was lazy and that I should do ten pushups everyday. I have done zero pushups today. BUT! I have an excuse... When you fall down, let go. Don't hang on too tight. Don't wake surf the way I did, with a fully extended arm, grasping like a threatened chimp even after that glorious twenty-two seconds gliding along the lip of a man-made wave on your first time wake surfing. Don't do it like that. Give yourself some slack, and when you fall down, let go. Don't hold on too tightly. 17:33 I randomly sing you a love song that's not really finished yet because I felt like it. But not until after I finish jibber jabbin about cannabis laws and my sober November experiment. 21:22 The conversation with Melissa begins. We catch up after a little over a year since our . She talks about her first tour and where she's at after 2.5 years hitting the stages. She recounts some good advice given to her by some of the greats, like Kirk Fox and Joey Diaz.

013 - @toneshifter Solocast (catching up, climate & tour tales) It's been too long! This unplanned episode was born of self indulgence.
