Episode 23 - Movies in Space Part 1 - First Man (2018)

In this episode I review the Damien Chazelle film “ First Man” which tells the story of Neil Armstrong from his role as a test pilot , being chosen to take part in the Gemini program through his lunar flight as commander of Apollo 11 and his place in history.

This is part 1 of a 3 part series covering movies in space. Part 2 will discuss “ The Right Stuff” and Part 3 will cover “Apollo 13”

Episode 22 - Cigar City Mafia Part 2

In this companion show to Episode 8 I interview a former long time resident of Ybor City and get her recollections of growing up in Ybor and her stories of the Mafia influence that was present but did not affect her in the way you may expect.

NOTE: I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you listen to EPISODE 8 first so you know the background of the people that are referenced in this episode.

Episode 20 - Marcus Mariota vs Jameis Winston

I bring back my guest from the first episode of the show Chad Casey of the Sports Car Unleashed Podcast.

Chad and I discuss the quarterbacks of our favorite NFL teams. Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston.

These two QB’s are very different but have faced many of the same challenges that have stunted their growth.

Titans super fan Chad breaks down the career of Marcus Mariota and I do the same for Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston.

Is Mariota injury prone ? Can Winston ever cut down on turnovers?

These questions and more are discussed plus we give our thoughts on if either QB will be the franchise quarterbacks they were drafted to be.

Episode 18 - Roma / Penny Marshall

My review of “ Roma” Directed by Alfonso Cuaron ( Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Gravity) and I discuss the late Penny Marshall.

The show is on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, TuneIn and Castbox.
