#106 Weird Paul Opens Up His Home to Marta On The Move
Do you love weird things? I do. It always peaks my interest when something, or someone sticks out from the normal every day hum drum life. This podcast guest is self proclaimed as being weird, it is even his name, and we are going to get to know him a little bit. His name is Weird Paul, and I got to visit him in his home of collected moments, memories, and oddities from the past.
Weird Paul is the world's first vlogger, and he started in 1984. 1984!!!!!! Yes, you read that right. He took his parents old video camera, and started recording his everyday life, and eventually progressed to music videos as well. Releasing album after album, and gaining followers that crave that nostalgic feeling. My absolute FAVORITE video of his is "A Phone Call to My 14 Year Old Self"... Genius.
In a time where everything is disposable, those of us who remember what it was like before cell phones, before the internet, really miss that time. For those of you that have never had that, I am sure you are truly curious about what it was like, and Weird Paul is here to help take you back in time.
Paul has captured a ton of interesting, and really weird things that he shares with the world, and we are grateful. I hope he continues to highlight relics that have reemerged from the past, and continue to record fun videos through his original old recording devices. He is supposed to help me try and play some of mine that I lost long ago, and I can't wait!

#104 Lindsey Smith- Author of Eat Your Feelings
Sooooooo tell me what diet you are on for the new year. Not on one? Doubtful. No really, it isn't like I don't believe you. I just... don't. New year, new you, right? That's what we all hope for, that a new year we will stick to our goals. Lose that extra 5, 10 or 20 lbs we tacked on in 2017, or from all those cookies we ate over the holidays.
Guilty as charged over here! It seems like I have tried everything, and with all those diets there is always a cook book involved. I'll stick to it for a bit, but eventually will waver off, and the cycle begins again. These days however, I find myself looking more into holistic ways of treating my body. Listening to my body, and even more so, my mood, and my mind. Letting it guide my eating habits.
Lindsey Smith is a lady I had the pleasure of meeting at the Pittsburgh Publicity Summit. I was speaking on the panel, and Lindsey and Beth Caldwell were running the event. I learned she was writing a cook book based on your mood, and I was instantly intrigued.
Eat Your Feelings- is more than a recipe book. It focuses on what your body craves based on your emotional mood, and how to kick them to the curb, or nourish yourself. I love this concept. How many times have I wanted something I knew was bad for me, because I was tired, upset, or stressed. I can think of quite a few times.
Join me as I sit with Lindsey, and chat with her about what prompted this book to be released.
