I was on a podcast the other day

Yeah, that’s pretty much all I have to say.

Oh. Right, it was Threads Podcast: Life Unfiltered. I talked about the extended fasting I’ve been getting into, mental health, and all that good stuff. The guys who host (Ben and Jason) are friends of mine, and are both really nice people. One more so than the other, sure, but both are pretty cool nonetheless.

Ep. 119 || Our own blogger Chris joins us to talk about his fasting experience and mental health journey Threads Podcast: Life Unfiltered

Whether you listen to my episode or not, if you want to hear two grown men (and sometimes a guest) speak honestly about things we usually shy away from in polite society–not because it’s inappropriate, but because it’s uncomfortable–then you might try Threads Podcast: Life Unfiltered. Just a couple of real dudes talking about real stuff.

While I’m at it, don’t forget to check out my podcast, Creative Ops (A Podcast for Creative People, by Creative People). I recently interviewed a legendary surf photographer, some folks who creative experiences that will make you question reality, and most recently the drummer for longtime Lansing, Michigan rock band, HEARTSICK.

Creative Ops | Ep.20 | Jake Bryan – HEARTSICK Drummer & Music Lover Creative Ops

As a drummer, I was excited to nerd out with my new buddy, Jake Bryan. Jake is the drummer for HEARTSICK, the Lansing-based band that's been playing loud music for 20 years. I started following this band even before Jake joined. As you'll find out, he joined the band around the same time I left the Lansing area for good. Jake came from a musical family, where his passion for drumming was highly encouraged from a young age. In his teens, he found his passion as a traveling performer with the school band when they performed in Florida and New York City. Before joining Heartsick, he played drums in a Final Fantasy themed metal band–something I wasn't aware was a thing.

Creative Ops | Ep.17 | Jeff Hull of Nonchalance – Participatory Arts & Situational Design Creative Ops

Jeff Hull joined me, via the magic of the internet, to discuss literature, culture, Nonchalance, and his latest project–a revolutionary podcast–SYGNYL. Listen as we discuss past and present projects, how how created and implemented them, and how the lines between art and reality can blur to create something unintended, both in our art and, as we've seen recently, in our culture. That blurring, as Jeff puts it, "can lead us to chaos or meaning." Join us and try to find the meaning in the chaos. If we can't find it, we'll make our own. -CT . . .

Creative Ops | Ep.16 | Nate Williams – Entrepreneur, Kayak Guide, Travel Gigger, and CaRV (car-VEE) Enthusiast Creative Ops

Nate Williams is the co-founder of River Town Adventures, a proud sponsor of the show. After leaving RTA, he found a travel gig in Seward, Alaska, where he was a professional kayak guide, showing tourists glaciers, bears, and whales via kayak. Then he went to Europe on a work/stay program and explored a few countries for next to nothing!  While he waits for tourism to return, he spoke with us from his home in Lansing, MI, about what he's done, where he's been, and (hopefully) where he's going. It was a long chat with a good friend. I hope you enjoy it. See pictures from Nate's trips in his Instagram. … Thanks for checking out the show! I appreciate it. Check out my website http://www.christophertallon.com to see my blog, learn about the book I wrote, and find my social links. Shout out to Hey Guys Media Group for the technical and spiritual support, and to River Town Adventures and Baby Farm Soaps for existing (and for sponsoring the show)! Stay tuned for more creative people! -CT

Creative Ops | Ep.15 | Drunken Podcasting w/ Justin D'Autremont – Host of Drunk Conspiracies Podcast Creative Ops

Creative People! Justin D'Autremont (host of Drunk Conspiracies Podcast) joined me from across the great state of Michigan after I recently did an episode of his show. We talk about all things podcasting, what got him into it, how he does it, and what his plans are moving forward. We also talk about the pros/cons of life in the north vs life in the south, and other random stuff. (Alcohol may or may not have been in play on this episode…) Justin's a talented young man (I can say that, he's younger than me), and I'm excited to watch his podcasts grow. Please download DRUNK CONSPIRACIES PODCAST wherever you get podcasts! Follow his show on Facebook and Instagram. . . . Thanks to Hey Guys Media Group (my technical overseers), as well as River Town Adventures and Baby Farm Soaps. Looking forward to doing some fun promotional stuff (ie. giveaways, contests, river events!) in 2021. Stay tuned for that, and follow what's going on with me (Christopher Tallon) and the show at http://www.christophertallon.com, and on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Litsy (a cool spot for avid readers).   -CT
