For Fun

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:

“Back in 1984, Miami Vice changed the TV landscape not only for the decade, but for generations of police drama’s since. Miami Vice’s cultural impact on TV was not only with police drama’s, but bringing in the best of popular music with each and every episode. Go With the Heat is a serial podcast going an episode at a time and digging into the cultural phenomenon that is Miami Vice from the perspective of hosts who have never seen an episode prior to starting this podcast.”

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.

Family vlogging

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...
