Fantasy Restaurant Jeni B

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 rules in the restaurant…not even the laws of physics exist if you don’t want them to.  These are usually a patron only exclusive, but I’m putting this out there because Jeni is honestly just too much fun, and she puts together a hell of a meal.  To hear more, head to https://www.patreon.com/whyamipod and I hope you enjoy this meal with Jeni.

Why Am I Jeni B

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 Jeni B.  This lady is a machine; she’s a single mother of two teenage girls(which I think she’s the most proud of), a career TV producer, writing instructor, an awesome podcast host and producer, and truly, just an all around good human.  Having found her through her podcast I have to say that she gives me some definite production goals; she covers some heavy topics with the effortless precision and grace of a ballet dancer.  I want to be as accomplished and humble about it as Jeni when I grow up.  I hope you enjoy this chat with Jeni B.

Why Am I Dennis Scott

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 Dennis Scott.  He’s won some Grammys and Emmys, but as he says “nobody cares about your resume.”  How does one balance a career in music production…you start a Beatles tribute band and get them a Grammy nomination, of course LOL.  This guy has a work ethic that exhausts me just mentioning it.  Before we jump to the episode I want to quickly remind folks that if you join the patreon, you get access to our warmup exercise the Fantasy Restaurant.  Here we build their dream meal with no rules or restrictions, we laugh and I loudly judge their choices.  At any rate, I hope you enjoy this conversation with Dennis.

Why Am I Addy Starr

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 Addy Starr.  During the week she’s a middle school French teacher, and on the weekends, she’s a professional wrestler…like the kinda stuff you see on TV.  I really have trouble thinking of two things that seem more diametrically opposed, but not only do they coexist in Addy but they genuinely compliment and build one another up.  I hope you enjoy this conversation with the “All-American Canadian” Addy.

Why Am I George Larrimore

Hi I’m Greg Sowell, and this is Why Am I, a podcast where I find interesting people and trace a path to where they find themselves today.  My guest this go around is George Larrimore.  He’s a Southerner who started collecting stories at a young age, and liked it so much he moved to California to do it full time for TV.  George has the knack for finding the story behind the story, but not only that, he’s going to tell it to you in a way that connects you to it…makes you care about it.  He’s bringing a voice to folks…or perhaps helping to tell their truth louder than they would have been able to on their own.  I hope you enjoy this conversation with George.

Why Am I Adrienne Dobson

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 Adrienne Dobson.  She’s an actress, a beautiful singer, and oh, by the way, also the director of the theater company.  Adrienne was kind enough to talk to me about how life was prior, and the coming to terms with a pandemic, and then the hope she feels as things come back to us.  The arts are important to a lot of us…the arts are important to me and I want to do whatever I can to keep them alive.  At any rate, I hope you enjoy this conversation with Adrienne.
