Hey folks!

Glad to see some of you back. Others who are here for the first time–welcome.

Today I’m bringing you Creative Ops’ most downloaded episodes of the year. Ya know, so far. So without further ado, which is a thing I don’t normally say. I mean, what is ado? Ah. Just looked it up. It means “a state of agitation or fuss, especially about something unimportant” (Google).

Anywho, here are the…

10 Most Downloaded Episodes of Creative Ops (2022)

Creative Ops podcast logo

This one just came out a few days ago and is 2 downloads away from being number 10 on the list, so I’m including it as honorable mention, as I’m sure it will pickup more listens quickly. It was a fascinating interview about how a local with a fraction of the money as the big dispensaries managed to open the only locally owned and operated marijuana dispensary in the city of Grand Rapids. I highly recommend it. (No pun intended, but I’ll roll with it.)

Casey Kornoelje

Ep.56 | Casey Kornoelje – Grand Rapids’ Only Local in the Cannabis Game Creative Ops

Casey Kornoelje is the sole owner of the only locally-owned cannabis dispensary in Grand Rapids, Michigan. You might ask, "There are so many dispensaries…how is Pharmhouse Wellness the only local one?"  Great question. Listen for the answer to that, how Casey got into growing in the first place, how the shop came to fruition, and what his plans are for the shop and the community around it going forward. . . . Check out Pharmhouse Wellness on their website, http://www.pharmhousewellness.com, on Facebook @pharmhousewellness, and on Instagram @pharmhousewellness. . . . Follow the show and its host at http://www.christophertallon.com and on all social media @TallonWrites. . . . And leave a review AND a rating for the show wherever you download podcasts. Thanks!

Here’s this year’s (so far…) top 10 most downloaded episodes of Creative Ops. Enjoy!

Creative Ops | Ep.48 | Inside Creative Ops‘ Musical Creative Process (The Final Episode of 2021!!!) Creative Ops

I hope music continues grow in its importance to the overall production in this podcast. As I make the music, sometimes by myself, sometimes with a friend, I show you a little bit of how the process comes together. Hear snippets of unfinished songs, pieces of this and that, then how it all works together in the end.  Then go and have yourself a happy holiday and enjoy the rest of the year. Check me out at http://www.christophertallon.com or as @tallonwrites on all SM platforms. Happy new year, folks!

Hey folks! The show is officially 2 years old. Woo! Thanks to all the guests who've been on, people who've listened, and friends I've made along the way.

Now I get as many downloads in a day as I used to in a month. So thanks for everything. Truly. Other stuff on this episode: Happy Birthday to Brandon Scott (Episode 8)–>buy his books!

Joshua Marsella is an Army veteran turned stay-at-home dad and horror author. His books "Scratches" and "Severed" are making a lot of noise on the indie horror scene.

Books, films, adaptations, Stephen frigging King, military stories, dad stories, being a creative writer, and lots more. Such a nice guy. I hope you enjoy the interview and decide to check out one and/or all of his books.

Creative Ops | Ep.49 | How to Raise a Creative Genius with Special Guest…MY MOM! (First show of 2022!) Creative Ops

Ok, so the title may seem a bit outrageous, but it's supposed to be tongue-in-cheek, people. Rather than get interviewed by someone else or perform an autobiography in the vein of a get-to-know-your-host style program, I interviewed my mom about what it was like to raise me. As we talk about, I hated school and decided to almost completely tune out for the last half of my public education. I was most commonly described by teachers as "smart but he doesn't apply himself." I graduated high school with a 2.01GPA. That whole time, my mom was always about as cool as a person could be in that situation, which is probably why that part of my life hasn't deterred me from doing what I **really** want to do. If you were kind of an asshole as a kid, this might be an interesting memory jogger. If your kid is kind of an asshole now, this might be informative and relieve your soul a little bit. Or not. I don't pretend to know about stuff like that; I'm just a creative genius with a cool mom. . . . Find me, Christopher Tallon, on http://www.christophertallon.com, or on your favorite socials @TallonWrites. (My mom doesn't do social media, but I'll tell her you said "Hi")
