Off The Walls #1 – Intro / Hunter / Fargo / Broadchurch / WWE / ETC

Hello there everyone! It’s been awhile.

Zoe and I have decided that since I haven’t written a book in a few months, but both of us have been doing a lot of really cool creative stuff, we would change the show completely.

Off the Walls (we will explain) is our new show that will be hosted here until further notice. Here, we will talk about everything we are doing and creating, but also talking about all of the stuff we have been watching, listening to, reading and whatever else we want to talk about.

We think we will still be bringing you educational, yet entertaining chat and awesomeness.

Tonight, we talk about a lot of things to catch you up like, Hunter, Fargo, Broadchurch, American Horror Story Freak Show, WWE TLC, Zodiac, Helter Skelter, The Manson Family, The Murder Cult, Jar-assic Mini Monsters, Creepersin and a special update about Black Star Canyon.

Podcast 451 #32 – Simon Whistler from Rocking Self Publishing Podcast

Here it is! We got him to come on the show and share about his experiences interviewing a ton of self published authors, trends and tips and also his upcoming book, Audiobooks for Indies. This was great fun but we had huge tech probs. The video after the first couple minutes is just me for some reason and Zoe got booted a few minutes in and was unable to one back. :( But, Simon and I had a great time and shared some really useful and amazing stuff.
