Episode 144 – Michael Domitrz – Consent / audio

Consent

Michael Domitrz (@datesafeproject on Twitter) returns to discuss consent with host Craig Price. With all the news about sexual assault and consent laws in the media, Craig reaches out to  past guest Michael Domitrz to hash it out. Michael explains the importance of consent, open discussions with your partner (or potential partner) and why we need to focus not on how to avoid assault but on how to be a good human being. Meanwhile  Craig laments the fact that not enough men are speaking out on the subject while Michael offers that men should participate in the discussion but not break their arms patting themselves on the back because they do so. The two also discuss how awful internet comments can be!

Meteorologist Steve Lanore (@SteveLanore on Twitter) returns to discuss his new book on tornadoes with host Craig Price.  Flying cows and sharknadoes be damned! Craig and Steve get down to the reality of these devastating storms called Twisters. Steve’s new book, Twister Tales: Unraveling Tornado Myths is out and due to Craig’s lack of experience with tornadoes despite living at the tip of “Tornado Alley” he asks some of the basics: What conditions do you need to have tornadoes, how much can they lift, what’s the difference between a tornado and a water spout? The two also talk about some of the more popular myths related to tornados like: Does the sky turn green? Should you hide under an overpass or bridge? and more importantly…can Sharknado really happen?? (Yes, Craig asked this).

Episode 141 – Shawn Doyle – Grief / audio

Grief

Shawn Doyle (@Motiv8er on twitter) returns to discuss grief with host Craig Price. Grief can be a painful subject, awkward to address and difficult to understand. That’s why Craig thought Shawn and his new book “The Sun Still Rises: Surviving and Thriving After Grief and Loss” should come on the podcast. The two discuss the shocking and unexpected loss of Shawn’s first wife Cindy and how Shawn coped in the aftermath. Shawn offers up some suggestions to people trying to support those in grief, how grief is contextual and personal as well explains the path that allowed himself to find happiness.

Every day, many people lose loved ones and face the grieving process. They suffer while coping with the loss of a child, spouse, parent, friend, or sibling. It is perhaps the most difficult and devastating challenge any of us face in our lifetime. Shawn simply tries to offer his first hand experiences to others in hopes they to can heal.

Craft Beers

David Graham with the Karbach Brewing Co (@KarbachBrewing on Twitter) talks craft beers with host Craig Price. Craig certainly enjoys a tasty adult beverage from time to time so the opportunity to go to a brewery and talk beer was too good to be true. David and Craig sit inside the climate controlled barrel room inside the Karbach brewery in Houston to talk the recent trend of brewing craft beers, how they are popping up everywhere including at home brewers, the decision of can vs. bottle, competing in a growing competitive market,  how they distribute their beer and how they prep their seasonal beers. It’s fun for the whole family (or at least those over 21).
