Ep. 82 | Everywhere BUT Bookstores Tour (9/27/22): Pharmhouse Wellness Artists’ Market Creative Ops

I'm on my Everywhere BUT Bookstores Tour promoting my novel, Switchers, a scifi story that pits teens in 1996 against their adult selves in a winner-take-all time travel war. Pharmhouse Wellness is more to me than a few pit stops on the tour, they are a partner I've worked with to promote the book and to sell it in their lobby. I'm grateful for the opportunities they've provided me, as well as many other creatives in the Grand Rapids area. This episode is comprised of 6 interviews: 1) Casey and Megan Kornoelje – owners/founders of Pharmhouse Wellness 2) Dennis the frisbee guy – Founder of Wino-O Frisbee in Grand Rapids (Facebook Group)  3) Darcy Weiss aka Doodle Mittens – artist/vendor (www.doodlemittens.com) 4) Chadwick Belbeck – artist/art market attendee/personal friend (IG: @cwick_b) 5) "Uncle" Mary Brandt & (Aunt) Tay Martinez – artists/vendors/adorable married couple (IG: @maryfragdalene & @taymartiart) 6) Abdul – owner of  CHAR, the caterers of the event (www.char-gr.com) . . . http://www.christophertallon.com for all things show/host related.

Andrew “Drew” Smith is my old friend and fellow former educator. We both taught for half a decade or so before venturing into different careers. However, our training–both in content and in pedagogy–prepared us surprisingly well for our chosen paths.

Listen as we discuss our best and worst memories, how teachers REALLY talk in the teachers’ lounge (sadly, it’s always very good), and what it was like for Drew as an intern trying to teach non-English speaking refugees who were illiterate in their native language and never received formal education. (Amongst other things.)

I mentioned the book EXPLORE/CREATE by , and I highly recommend it.

Thanks for listening.
