For over one hundred episodes I've produced, created and managed a podcast called Go With The Heat. Originally, the podcast was all about the 1980's classic Miami Vice.
Here's a quote from the podcast site:
There they go forever, one last handshake over with the Miami skyline. This is one of the most iconic shows in TV history. The fashion, the cars, the music. I only have one question… Have YOU ever considered a career in southern law enforcement? pic.twitter.com/B6ebeJlcec

John, Melissa, and I have had so much fun over the last few years and have created an amazing community. With over 50,000 downloads, deep community engagement, and even our own merch, we completed our run through Miami Vice at the end of 2019.
But, that was not the end of the podcast! We have relaunched the show to be all about the greatest action movies. Every other week we publish a new episode giving the Go With The Heat treatment to another action movie, that is both fun and heartfelt. Whether its an honest reflection for how much we love Rocky, to gushing over the greatest action movie band (its Dragon Sound BTW), its the most fun I have and the thing I look forward to the most.
Here's a running list of our most recent episodes.
- 160 - The King of Karate Cities
- 160 - Miami Connection
- 158 - Lone Wolf McQuade
- 157 - Angel Town
- 156 - Classic Rerun: Blood and Roses
The person I collaborate the most with is my wife. Over the years we've not only been partners in raising a family, but also creative partners. For our youngest two children, we experimented with family vlogging and its one of my fondest memories of our relationship.
This was also an opportunity for us to try out different forms of content. For both pregnancies we vlogged our experience, in addition to creating a full social community and having a ton of fun in the process. I cherish these opportunities and the skills learned along the way.
I learned so much through this process, from video production to how different communities consume and engage with content. In the past, I've always centered my content around marketing and technology. Diving into family vlogging was a whole new world and helped put into perspective how to build something new.
A side benefit is to see how frequently my hair changes through the years...
