Today’s guest is simply known as Swamburger. He is one part of one of my favorite musical groups, Solillaquists of Sound. With five amazing albums and touring across the globe, I discovered this group from a co-worker at one of my past jobs and now I am a huge fan. “Solilla” is a socially conscious group, whose content is centered around life-affirming, justice-oriented views held by the group. Alxandrah and Swamburger make up the MC’s for the group, poet Tonya Combs helps with the lyrics and background vocals, and worldwide DJ, composer, and producer, DiViNCi, mixes the group’s unique sound.

Today’s episode is actually episode 100 and it’s a big one, because we have one of my favorite guests on the show. I was so excited to do this podcast and had the great honor to meet  Mick Foley and his daughter Noelle at an event with my non-profit partner Kulture City last year. Guys, Mick Foley is an awesome human being, so down to earth and just a wonderful person. I can’t say enough about how great he is. In addition to being a husband, father and immortal wrestling superstar, he also cares very much about his health. In fact, a while back he decided he needed a change and started eating better. What did he eat and how did he do it? Well, we will talk about all that, but the significance of this episode number is that the changes that he made ended up helping him lose over one hundred pounds. I’m really excited for you to hear this podcast, so let’s get right into it. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the one and only, hardcore legend, WWE Hall of Fame Superstar, multi-time best-selling author, stand-up comic, spoken word performer and most of all...a dad...Mr. Mick Foley.

Jon Sanchez is a hero, but he is in disguise. Just like Clark Kent, his disguise enables him to fit in with lots of normal men out there, but he is anything but normal. Jon’s disguise is that of a busy father of three, but he is a hero through and through. After six years of fighting fires and saving lives, Jon has seen quite a bit and helped so many people, but his most important job is being a husband to his wife and a dad to his three children. In this episode, John shares some advice that every family with young children can use including tips on CPR, two things every kid should know for the safety and a few others stories and pointers from his experience as a Firefighter with Lake County Fire Department in Central Florida.

Robin Raven is an author who has brought light to a subject that is often not thought about...Santa as a vegan! When Robin saw that most pictures of Santa including him whipping his reindeer as they ride through the night, she decided to use her writing to make a change. This is what created her book "Santa's First Vegan Christmas," which has already been recognized by PETA as one of the top kid-friendly vegan books of the season. Enjoy the podcast!

Today’s guest is Mr. Josh LaJaunie. In his own words, Josh is a “plant-eating, miles-logging, WHODAT from the Bayou with an appetite for life!” Yes, he ran a TON of miles and has an incredible story to tell, but this conversation really had me thinking a lot about hunting. Josh doesn’t hunt anymore, but it is part of who is he and it will always be tied to great memories. As someone who now doesn’t eat meat of any kind, he is thinking outside the box about how he can communicate to his Bayou brothers and sisters that eating meat is not something that he feels is healthy for them. His ideas on how to engage in that conversation and his thoughts on hunting as it is looked at from the outside world are fascinating, so I welcome you to open your mind and really hear what he has to say. In addition to that, we talked about family and the impact that this plant-based journey had on his family’s dinner table and get togethers. He is a great guy who is full of life and I am excited for you to get to hear from him.
