Why Am I Peter Krask

Hey everybody, I’m Greg Sowell and this is Why Am I, a podcast where I talk to interesting people and try to trace a path to where they find themselves today.  My guest this go around is Peter Krask.  He is a writer, photographer, mentor, maker, guide, and educator.  He’s also a deep thinker, putting a lot of time examining the way he feels about things and then putting that into his work.  Something that really struck me is how he looks at art.  To Peter, it seems to truly be alive with its own thoughts, feelings, and intentions.  The way he talks about art, it knows what it wants and will guide you to it.  At any rate, I hope you enjoy this chat with Peter.

Why Am I Brian Brewer

Hey everybody, I’m Greg Sowell and this is Why Am I, a podcast where I talk to interesting people and try to trace a path to where they find themselves today.  My guest this go around is Brian Brewer.  Brian and I go way back; we used to work together back in the early 2000s.  He’s one of the most introspective folks I’ve bet, but like most folks growth came at a price…or perhaps more accurately growth was a result of paying a price.  I tell you what…if you ever meet Brian, be sure to ask him about El Paso.  At any rate, I hope you enjoy this conversation with Brian.

Why Am I Jafar Sandouk

Hey everybody, I’m Greg Sowell and this is Why Am I, a podcast where I talk to interesting people and try to trace a path to where they find themselves today.  My guest this go around is Jafar Sandouk.  He’s a multi talented musician who writes all of his music, records each instrument, and then also does all of the post production himself.  It’s hard to imagine someone would want to do all of that themselves, until you realize that’s the one way he can truly communicate with others completely.  I hope you enjoy this chat with Jafar.

Why Am I Lish Steiling

Hey everybody, I’m Greg Sowell and this is Why Am I, a podcast where I talk to interesting people and try to trace a path to where they find themselves today.  My guest this go around is Lish Steiling.  She has been a chef for two decades, worked as a food stylist, has won an Emmy, won her season of Chopped, and she still says one of her proudest moments is when one of her line cooks learned to hold a spoon like a pencil.  That blows me away; someone who has accomplished so much is proudest of her impacts on the people around her.  Join me in learning why food is emotional with Lish.

Hey everybody, I’m Greg Sowell and this is Why Am I, a podcast where I talk to interesting people and try to trace a path to where they find themselves today.  My guest this go around is Alex Hajjar.  He’s an interesting mix of traffic engineer and musician.  It’s always interesting to me when I see someone who is technical and also artistic.  He’s also a host of a fantastic podcast called Social Animals that explores how people experience friendship in their life, and the stories that go along with it.  He’s got an awesome voice and an easy rapport with his guests.  At any rate, I hope you enjoy this conversation with Alex.

Why Am I Sam Knuth

Hey everybody, I’m Greg Sowell and this is Why Am I, a podcast where I talk to interesting people and try to trace a path to where they find themselves today.  My guest this go around is Sam Knuth.  Sam is a long-time techie, currently a senior director for Red Hat, possibly a dog owner, an author of awesome ideas, and he’s also a late diagnosed Autistic person.  It’s obvious he’s done a lot of study and reflection in general, but he doesn’t hold this knowledge inside just for himself, rather he takes the time to break down individual concepts so that it is ingestible by anyone.  I hope you join me with curiosity in this conversation with Sam.

Fantasy Restaurant Jenny Radcliffe

Welcome to the warmup exercise for the Why Am I podcast called “the Fantasy Restaurant.”  In here my guests get to pick their favorite: drink, appetizer, main, sides, and dessert.  There are no wrong answers!  Jenny’s meal basically breaks down to bread, but not just bread…there’s also bread.  I’ve never had anyone set the atmosphere quite like Jenny does…afternoon drinks with the dolphins LOL.  I hope you enjoy this meal with Jenny.
This is a great background primer on Jenny, and ultimately the video that compelled me to contact her(worth a watch!): https://youtu.be/R3ycxy7DE98

Why Am I Pop Haydn

Hey everybody, I’m Greg Sowell and this is Why Am I, a podcast where I talk to interesting people and try to trace a path to where they find themselves today.  My guest this go around is Pop Haydn.  He grew up in rural Tennessee as a minister’s son, and in fact he almost become one himself until he thought: “Nah, I’ll become a magician instead” LOL.  He’s been all over, met his heroes, been a big part of the magic castle, and by all accounts been very accomplished, and yet even at 72 he’s still learning new things, still pushing himself.  Pop’s audio is a little rough here and there, but his stories well make up for it.  I hope you enjoy this chat with Pop.

Why Am I Jenny Radcliffe

Hey everybody, I’m Greg Sowell and this is Why Am I, a podcast where I talk to interesting people and try to trace a path to where they find themselves today. My guest this go around is Jenny Radcliff. I don’t know if I have the time to properly introduce her, but here’s some of the highlights: she’s a self proclaimed Scouser, an amazing story teller, an award winning podcast host, oh and by the way she’s paid by folks to burglarize them. This is often referred to as a social engineer, but in essence she’s paid to travel all over the world to lie, cheat, and steal her way into places to assess their physical security. She’s a serious badass, but she’s also empathetic and kind. I hope you enjoy this conversation with Jenny.
