WhiskeyTalk | Foundations

This Whiskey Talk episode is my attempt at a first step toward addressing and processing through racism in this country. I talk through how growing up in the midwest shaped my world view and talk through this history of racism in America, how it's been there since the start, and what can be done moving forward. It's a place to start of what I know is a long journey.

COVID-19 and the Gig Live

We went live for this episode folks! I spoke with Chris Huisenga of Spearfish, SD, TJ Ellis currently in New Zealand, Humbeltown's Dylan Lewis and Morgan Carnes of Rapid City, Ted and Alice Miller of Fordyce, NE, and Clayton Ryan of Hill City, SD about the effects that social distancing due to COVID-19 has had on the smaller, local, gig playing musicians. It gets a bit difficult when for a lot of us, this is a substantial amount of income lost. What do we do about it and how to we, as creative types, create new ways to share and sustain our art and passion with our communities? We talk about this and more!

WhiskeyTalk - Yourself + 20%

In this episode of WhiskeyTalk on The Heath Bar, I talk about the evolutionary trait of lying to ourselves so we believe we are better than we actually are and how this is a good thing. The information discusses in this episode can be dove into deeper by reading "The Social Leap" by William Von Hippel as well as the scientific study titled, "Mirror, Mirror on the Wall: Enhancement in Self-Recognition" by Nicholas Epley and Erin Whitchurch.
