Personal Finance Help...Stat! Ryan Inman of "Financial Residency" brings the Cure!
My first listener-requested show! Always glad to help you out there in the listening world. When I told Ryan how hard it was to find a financial planner with a podcast, his reply was "There are four of us." And what an incredible help he was...I wonder if the other 3 even know about the Sherpa Chalet? It's great to listen to a finance guy who can put things in easy-to-understand terminology, and not get lost in a sea of acronyms (which is worse than being in an ocean of lotion.) Ryan helped to provide the basics of what we need to do to not let our finances get out of control. Keep in mind that in many instances, certain plans may work more accordingly for some than others. But, like he says, make sure you do your homework before investing large amounts of money into anything. Ryan's Info: Website:; Podcast: Financial Residency. Financial Fellowship to come!

Hey, Joe Rogan! Marc "The Shark" Ritorto is back in the Sherpa Chalet!!
Okay, Joe Rogan, do I have your attention? This is a guest you need for your show. Father of 4 talented daughters, novelist, martial artist, and host of his own MMA podcast. I'd say he checks all the boxes! Marc's always a lot of fun to talk to, and it was nice of him to make time for an interview even after getting back from a meet the teacher night at his daughters' school. (Hopefully, I'm not failing science...again...) You'll learn about the history of MMA, and some of Marc's most interesting guests. Also, which fighters should you keep an eye out long as they won't knock your teeth out? Aso, hear about what movies inspired Marc's writing? (Hey, wait, isn't that the other way around?

"The Unusual Buddha", Jim Martin, explains Buddhism and Meditation! And, Exclamation Points return for the Season 2 debut!!
Welcome to another season of the Sherpa Sheet! I'll start by stating that i keep a mental list of some of the topics that I'd like to cover. As long as there are good podcasts about the topics where I can learn, then I'm sold. Take Buddhism, for example. It's always something that I've never really understood. Enter Jim Martin to solve that problem! Obviously, you can't learn every last thing about it in the span of a half hour, but Jim really helped me to understand the important elements of Buddhism. (A lot of his shows cover meditation, so if Buddhism doesn't fascinate you, you can still learn how to relax your mind and find inner peace.) Since the closest way I'll ever get to Nirvana is by listening to a 90's grunge playlist (Kids, just ask your parents to explain) I'd just like to say "thanks so much" to Jim. You're more knowledgeable than unusual, my friend.

Korina and Dillon serve up a fresh "Morning Cup of Murder" and Serial (Killers) to go!
Who would have thought my Season 1 finale would end up with a true crime podcast? Some say in Podcastia, you could find a true crime podcast just by swinging a dead, uh, body. But Korina and Dillon provide a nice, compact, well-researched, daily dose of evil and mayhem, which makes this podcast a standout. Plus, they were fun to speak with!. So cool to see a married couple that can pool their talents together and make it work in a podcast. Hey, I do my show solo, and I probably argue with myself more than I've chosen to admit this season! I may need my lawyer, Dirty Louie, to arbitrate if it gets worse.. Plus!  Which is trickier for Korina- researching Jack the Ripper victims, or getting their son to take a nap? .Would a D&D serial killer pique Dillon's interest?Places for killers to hide(or not) in Tennessee! Chalk outline dating!  And did the Sherpa hit puberty during the finale??

Psychic Medium Samantha Jones gives us a "spirited" insight into the psychic world!
True story- I had initially contacted another psychic for an interview about the psychic world, but they unfortunately never responded to my request. To that person, I offer a hearty "Thank you", because instead, I got to speak with Samantha Jones of "Spiritual Philos-O-Chatter with the Joneses"!!! So that person's lost opportunity was a victory for me as a podcaster. And how lucky was i? Samantha told me beforehand that she knew that psychic ability could be controversial to talk about, but my intent was to learn about the process, and not debate. I don't think anyone else could have provided an understanding of the psychic process better than Samantha.  Her interview definitely provided a new appreciation of something that I'm now a lot less skeptical about. Thanks, Samantha!! (Unfortunately, her husband Danny, who is her co-host, was unable to sit in for the interview, but the Sherpa Chalet says "thank you" to him as well.) Also! The spirit world-Hoobastank connection! Science vs. Psychics! Intuition rules the radio! And ,were Samantha's dogs telling us the interview was over?

Is There a Midwife in the Chalet? Monica Wallace of "Women's Health Matters" knows what to Doula, and More!
I'm not a doctor. I don't even play one on tv (Are you listening, "General Hospital" casting director?). But many of my guests I've had this season have provided a wealth of medical information, and Monica Wallace certainly delivered (See what I did there?). Monica has a treasure trove of knowledge of women's health issues, given her over 20 years of experience as a midwife, doula (2 different things!), and yoga instructor. It was fun speaking with her, even though the subject matter wasn't necessarily "guy talk". Her podcast is nonetheless highly informative.. and recommend. Plus! Responses for the Sherpa bride! Getting the right amount of D( as in Vitamin)! Where can you find 1100 diapers? And the value of not saying "Lalalalala"!  Monica's info: Podcast: Women's Health Matters; Instagram: @yogimidwife; Twitter: @midwifemonica  Monica's faves: The Birth Kweens; Women Inspiring Women Sherpa Suggestions:.

We ask Jo Wilson, "Is This Love?" (Spoiler alert...It's her podcast...)
What a great time i had speaking with Joanne Wilson! Podcaster, neuropsychotherapist, counselor,blogger, radio personality,writer, wife, mom of 3...I think I would get a hernia again holding her business card! She really provided a lot of insight into the workings of the brain and how to keep a marriage strong. But I'm positive that those of you who have read her writings or listened to her radio appearances or podcasts already knew that! (Also, her website is worth checking out, too) You can tell that she really cares about people and wants to help those who need it.  LOVE her mantra of "It is never too late to begin.". How true is that for all of us?? People like her make me glad that I get to do this. (Okay I think I've gushed I get a free "Is This Love?" t-shirt now?) But seriously, I consider myself very lucky to have interviewed her. Plus! Chemistry without Bunsen burners! Jo tries not to hit her husband's car! Conversation starters that won't land you in court! The sherpa's parents give marital advice! Plus, a long-distance dedication that didn't need Casey Kasem!

It's Book Club, with Kristina and Marc "The Shark" Ritorto at the Sherpa Chalet!
Book club, you say? Hey, if Oprah can do it ,so can I. Without the obscenely large paycheck, of course. Marc's incredibly lucky to be so talented and to have a talented family. Throughout the interview, i kept thinking in the back of my head, "If all of his daughters end up authoring their own books, won't he have a publishing cabal? And what an amazing talent in his daughter, Kristina!! At 11, I was purely focused on architecture and construction, myself. You know, building tree forts with Steven Nocar. I wonder how often Marc's daughters ask,"Read any good books lately?" Plus! MMA star or ninja? What will Kristina's podcast be? And where can I get a "Martial Artist on Premises" sign? (Ummm...asking for a friend...)

Now boarding! The return of Allison Sharpe from "Travel Snacks"!
She's back! With snacks! And an announcement! I must confess that I wasn't happy with the audio quality of our first interview( as much as I enjoyed the interview), but that's my fault as an inexperienced podcaster. So as far as having Allison back for a "remix"...wish granted! Thank you, Allison! Just as wonderful 19 episodes later!! Take a listen to the show to hear about Allison's next endeavor, Plus! tater tots in the Vortex! Baby news(noooo, not Allison...) ! Can you fly to Kombucha if you can't drink it?

Robert Bear, creator of "Invention Stories" makes a "patented" appearance at the Sherpa Chalet!
My interview this week comes back to the States. My talk with Robert Bear was very interesting and educational. I found it particularly amazing that a self professed failed inventor found his success hosting a top-ranked invention podcast. (Is that what they call reinvention?) He gave a lot of great advice in the interview, but there's more to be found on his podcast.  He told me that he's happy to make his show his legacy, so future inventors can be successful. So far, so good, Robert! Plus! Apple (Crider) envy! Bunch of Balloons hits it big! An ad-free podcast?? And, if Robert lives by the beach, does he know which sharks will write a check?

"Walking the Shadowlands" with Marianne, and talking about...the paranormal (and her podcast)!!
Who else but me gets the bright idea to record a podcast about the paranormal at 11:00 PM on a Saturday night? When Marianne and I were done, I was worried I would hear "GETTTTT OUTTTT!!!" on my Alexa speaker. It was really interesting hearing Marianne's perspectives on the paranormal. While many may have a degree of skepticism on these subjects, Marianne related her stories just like she does with her podcast-straightforward and factual. I also felt that it was also a nice change of pace for the show, don't you think? Also! Say "Patupaiorehe" five times fast!  Who's making the lights flicker? Say WHAT to Alexa?

There will be CHOCOLATE! A fun chat with John Kapos (aka Chocolate Johnny) about social media!
I'm having such incredible luck speaking with Australians, and John Kapos was no exception. We must have spoken 20 minutes both before and after I recorded our interview. He's one of those people you have an feeling of instant familiarity with. He's clearly passionate about Perfection Chocolates and helping others develop a social media presence. He certainly helped give me a new perspective, and was glad to assist with recommending future guests. Thank you SO much, John! He certainly kept me laughing throughout the interview, too, as you'll plainly hear. Speaking of listening, keep your eyes and ears open for the John Kapos Podcast in the near future. It'll be bound to be , as John puts it, "a ripper." Plus! The $25, The Chocolate Chili Challenge!

Meet Jasmin Shojai: A supersized interview with a super-nice supermodel/actress !!
(Warning: This Sherpa Sheet makes continuous use of the word "super" case that word easily offends you. But listen to the interview with Jasmin, and it makes heaps of sense.)  Before we started our recording, Jasmin asked if it was okay if her cockatiels flew around during the interview. Not a problem (Not like it was a pet lion!!).So we had built - in nature sounds for a super-down to earth person! I really admired her candor throughout the interview, whether about modeling, acting, social media, posing for Playboy, or cosmetic surgery. (Super honest!) She told me she really wanted to let people know about cosmetic surgery, and has appeared on other venues to discuss it as well. She's worked so hard to get to the level that she's at, and she has a great appreciation of how far she's gotten (super grounded!) . Plus! What does a supermodel do on her day off? Why is Leo so lucky? Mom knows best! Which bird doesn't live up to their name? And, is "Beauty by Jasmin" on the shelves yet??

Step 1- Listen to "Greener Thoughts" with Na'ilah. Step 2- Help Save the Earth. Step 3- Repeat often....
Welcome to the Sherpa Sheet! It's the "Save the Earth" edition. I wanted to be sure I would pronounce Na'ilah's name correctly for the interview (I know it bugs me when people mispronounce "sherpa"..or "Jim"). She prefers the pronunciation " the Lion King." And oddly enough, isn't preserving our planet for the next generation part of "The Circle of Life"? (My lawyer,Dirty Louie, says I won't have to pay Elton John and Tim Rice royalties for saying that.) I definitely agree that she is living up to the definition of her name. Na'ilah's clearly a woman of many talents, and her creative side is evident in her podcast.  She even "out-sherpa'd" me with her podcast suggestions. She listens to more than I do in a given time. Hmmmm...If I hang up on this podcasting gig, I may have found a Sherpa Successor. Plus! Seafood lasagne! Gary Vee strikes again! Styrofoam gets the boot! And, The sherpa's elementary school teacher leaves a lifetime littering lesson!

The Money-Making Episode: Get to know Apple Crider of "Young Smart Money"!
If I could bottle and sell Apple Crider's energy from our interview alone, I'd already be on track to making money. He's definitely someone who is wise beyond his years in matters of marketing and personal finance. If you looked up "ambition" in the dictionary, you'd probably see his picture. He's no fly-by night-get-rich-quick snake oil salesman. He's clearly a guy who's been out in the trenches, and can walk the walk and talk the talk with his podcast guests. His podcast and website will give you good information regarding earning money, Plus! Money-making apps!  Mom as a podcast guest?

Zachary Smith is a man on a "Mission 4 Health"....really, he is!
It was a real pleasure speaking with Zach for this week's episode. Talk about someone with a real passion for life, and a spiritual connection to what he does for others. Super easy to listen to his show, too, since it's in easy 1-minute bites. And he gives you a minute worth thinking about.  I think Mary Catherine will certainly grow up in a world where her parents will always let her know how special she is to them. After our conversation, I got him Dan Young's (my previous guest, who hosts Total Wellness Radio) contact info. I think even if they don't end up on each other's podcast, they would still have a great conversation about living a healthy life. But fingers crossed for networking. Also! All meat, all the time? Is it too late to eat that (thank you, Sherpa Bride!)? Who needs a coach? And, does the Master's Tournament of Disc Golf give you a green jacket, or a ladder to get your Frisbee off the roof?

The Voiceover Takeover! A conversation with our own voiceover guy, Bruce Goldberg!
Bonus-sized episode this week, and for good reason! Bruce Goldberg and I had a chat for about 2 hours, not all of which is on the show. Like I mention in the interview, part of the reason Bruce was brought on to be our voiceover guy was so there was a different voice for the podcast, for the segments in our show. I felt that having Bruce on for an interview helps introduce him to the audience, since he's an important part of the show now. And what an interesting story he has to tell. From a kid with a radio set, to a dj, to radio personality, to A&R guy, to business owner to voiceover artist, this is one guy who has no interest in being complacent in life. I found his story fascinating, funny, and inspirational as well. I found him on a site called fiverr, but I got a million dollars' worth of advice in our conversation. Plus! Battle of the AI assistants! Swearing to make a 30-second ad better! Bruce's assistant sounds familiar! And Bruce notices something off with Milli Vanilli, but he doesn't blame it on the rain! (but if you're gonna blame it on something....)

Whooooo are this week's guests? Why, Amanda and Dave from "The Owlish Folk", of course!
Welcome back to the Sherpa Sheet! A little background on this week's episode. I had initially been scheduled to interview just Dave Roberts for this show, because Amanda Greenwood wasn't sure if she could make it. I had a feeling it would be fun with one or two of them. Luckily, she was able to make it. At first, there was no audio for our interview, but once we got it working, BOOM! Dave and Amanda just got the ball rolling before we even started recording. This was actual conversation: Dave: Jim, I have to warn you, I'm not wearing any trousers. Amanda: Me, neither. In fact, I'm wearing my husband's underwear. Dave: So am I! Now, I don't know about you, but when you start off like that, I know it's going to be a fun interview. I found it interesting how they found lives and careers for themselves in South Korea. As for me, I get a little nervous if I have to drive into the next county. You can tell throughout the interview, and their podcast, what good  friends they are, and they were up to whatever the interview had in store for them. They're the type of people that you could go out to lunch with and come back with as old friends. They certainly were at home at the Sherpa Chalet...with (or without) pants .Plus: Yo! Sup!: The Podcast! Chessboxing-.the Sport of Kings (and Rooks)? Amanda's FitBit gauges the show! An (almost) K-Pop duet with Dave! And, if you are "literally overwhelmed with a case of the Mondays during a 7th inning stretch" these Owls will be looking for you! (I'll be hiding in the Chalet, as a home tonsorial artist.)

Stacy the Kid talks about joy and Tsoro in his podcast, "Jaunts and Faults"!
I guess we could call this edition of the Sherpa Sheet, "When the Sherpa met the Kid". And I certainly was glad to... Under the charge of overusing the word "interesting", I plead guilty, which I guess is better than pleading insanity. I really enjoyed my conversation with Stacy. He really knows a lot about literature, and you could see how much it plays a part in his life. He doesn't just write, he creates-which is what authors aspire to do. He's played so many roles in his life  and it doesn't appear that he'll be slowing down for quite some time. Stacy and i spoke about his influences, and how his life has influenced his writing.  Plus-the story of Tsoro the Watcher-and what to watch out for in the next season! Stacy's connection to previous guest Susannah Lewis! How cadence helps Stacy write! And what will The Kid read to "the kid", after he makes his debut? Stacy's info: Podcasts: Jaunts and Faults, Playing In Mindfields; Social Media: stacy.the.kid (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Hollowspace) Stacy's Podcast Picks: Thornvale, Critical Role, Snap Judgement  Sherpa Suggestions: Snap Judgement; The Truth; Selected Shorts; The Stoop Storytelling Series; This American Life; Jaunts & Faults Don't forget to listen to the details on how to enter "The Contest"!

Michael Wood gives us 366 Reasons to enjoy the "1 Year Audio Bible Experience"
Hmmmm....they say you're not supposed to discuss religion in mixed company. But after interviewing Michael Wood, I would think differently. Here's a talented guy, who wears many hats, who uses his talents to present a DAILY podcast of Bible passages. Regardless of what your religion is, his podcast is a well-produced broadcast that you will enjoy, and get a better understanding of the Bible. In this episode, Michael discusses his background and how religion became an important part of his life, and how the podcast has affected him. Also, did Jesus really say "Hold on, I'm recording!"? Bible bloopers! The link between Overwatch and the Bible! And "Dante's Inferno:The Podcast?" I think Facebook might be the fifth level of Hell, so I'm intrigued! Michael's contact info: Wix webmastery classes on Udemy and SkillShare; (YouTube, Facebook) michael_wood_digital_creative (Instagram) Michael's favorite podcasts: Start Here, Daily Hope, Core Sherpa Suggestions for the week:  1-Year Audio Bible Experience; The 10-Week Bible Study Podcast The Bible Project Jesus Calling: Stories of Faith The 1-Year Daily Audio Bible Exploring My Strange Bible If you didn't know already, add Apple Podcasts/iTunes and Stitcher to the growing number of platforms where you can hear this podcast. But FINALLY, you can leave reviews for the show on Apple and Stitcher! Nice reviews only, of course... Also, be sure to tune in for the June 5, 2019 show, where you will hear about a contest for the podcast you can enter. (Hint: It's not Publisher's Clearing House.) Could you possibly be a winner? Also, check out my ads on YouTube on my Jim the Podcast Sherpa channel! I'll be discussing that soon, so stay tuned! Thank you for reading the Sherpa Sheet!

Dan Young of "Total Wellness Radio" supplements us with useful health information!
As the old saying goes, "You gotta get up early in the morning get a podcast interview with Dan Young!" Or something like that...  Great early morning chat with Dan this week. He tells us what inspired him to get into the healthcare field, and about his work as a clinician. We discuss how pharmaceutical and natural medicine can peacefully coexist. And, if you think that supplements aren't checked by the FDA, you might have to rethink that. He also shares the healthy habits he adheres to in his life to keep health problems at bay(and it's not just an apple a day). Also, the rise of "cyberchondria"  (love the word, hate the reality of it)!! An inside look at the Keto diet! And all this time I thought it was the Cheeto diet. No WONDER why I'm not losing weight and my fingers are crusted with orange dust!

Susannah Lewis of "Thornvale" talks RPG, Monsters, Magic, and Marriage!
First things first. Please don't confuse The Sherpa Sheet with The Mueller Report. We're the one that's not redacted.  I have to confess...I really didn't know much about RPG's until I started listening to Thornvale. Granted, I grew up in the era of  D&D (Dungeons and Dragons) but I never really followed it. So, thank you, Susannah, for explaining it, and recommending other podcasts in this genre. I think that she will be the type of writer who will gather a large following in a short period of time, since she has such a love of the genre as many of its fans do. We also discuss how "Stranger Things has helped revive RPG. Also, monsters in Florida! Keeping the Vermont world separate from the Florida world! Characters with special powers! RPG players taking over! And, Susannah finds love on Christian Mingle !!( I didn't ask if her husband could sprout wings, but wouldn't that be cool?) Plus, we also throw in a dose of Sherpa Suggestions and Podcast Pointers. This time, we'll discuss your podcast settings. Did you know you can make me talk faster? And it doesn't involve a branding iron?? Susannah's info: Facebook: Facebook:Thornvale; Instagram: thornvalepodcast; Twitter:@thornvalecast ; plus a YouTube page. Susannah's favorite podcasts:The Crit Show; The Adventure Zone (Monster of the Week Shows) Sherpa Suggestions: The RPG Academy; Not Another D&D Podcast; The Glass Cannon Podcasts;Dragon Talk; Critical Role   Follow this podcast on Facebook (Too Many Podcasts) and Instagram & Twitter (2many podcasts).

Deanne Goodman of " In Happier News" is bringing positivity to the Sherpa Chalet!
It's a week about positivity! Let's start this week's Sherpa Sheet with a story. When I went to check out Deanne's podcast, and I read about its origin, 2 words came to mind... instant fascination. And after hearing some of her episodes, I said to myself, "This is someone I'm going to enjoy interviewing. ' And my Sherpa instincts were spot on. Here's a person who can juggle so much in her life and and keep up the positivity she shares in her podcasts. They really will put a smile on your face if you need a pick me up, or just want to maintain a sunny disposition. Her story is one of inspiration from an unexpected source. We talk about news reporting, how parents can be positive for their kids, and the problem with the lack of upbeat stories in the media. Plus, Deanne shares happy news from her own personal life! And was the Sherpa fanboying about an Oprah podcast?? You'll only be sure if you're listening! Plus, some kind words to some wonderful people ...with a presidential nomination!. And naturally, Sherpa Suggestions!! As previously mentioned, Episode 5 was a "podcast primer" of sorts, to the listeners who aren't that experienced with podcasts. This week, I introduce an occasional segment called "Podcast Pointers" for those people. This time around, I answer the question, "How do you share a podcast?" If you've got a question about podcast apps, the show, a certain guest, or anything else concerning life on Mount Podcastia, join the people who have podcasts that want to promote them, who can contact me at, and I'll try to help you out. Don't forget to follow the podcast on social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) and subscribe to my show and spread the word. #VivaLeSherpalution!  Deanne's podcast faves: Serial, Dr. Death, Goal Digger, Oprah's Supersoul Conversations Deanne's info: Website: ; Facebook:Deanne Goodman;  Instagram deannestagram Sherpa suggestions for the week: In Happier News, 10% Happier With Dan Harris, Better Than Happy, The Good News Countdown, and The Good News Podcast.

Welcome to the Sherpa Sheet for Episode 5. I got some new listeners this past week who are new to the world of podcasts. So , we take a sneak peek behind the curtain of Too Many Podcasts!...and realize that this curtain needs to be vacuumed. Ugh. I explain what a podcast is and how to subscribe, and how to unsubscribe , once you realize you've made a grave judgement in error. Also, the origin of Viva La Sherpalution and how to become one of the People of the Pods! Let's not forget the debut of Mike Rafone this week! (Get it?) But of course, it's not a true episode of Too Many Podcasts! without some Sherpa Suggestions. This time around, it's some of the most popular podcasts on Mount Podcastia. Maybe you'll find some of your favorites here? This week's Sherpa Suggestions:Analysis of A Murder by Dr. Phil; Stupid Genius with Emma Chamberlain; The Joe Rogan Experience; On Second Thought: The Trevor Noah Podcast; Root of Evil-The True Story of the Hodel Family and The Black Dahlia; Sherpa fave : Stuff You Should Know.  In the future, once we gain more listeners, I'd love to do a listener feedback show.

On a date? Stop what you're doing and do it better, after you hear Kealy Ryder, host of "Dating Talk With Kealy" !!
We'll start this week's Sherpa Sheet with a behind the scenes story. The interview with Kealy was conducted on a video app. Kealy was concerned about how she'd look on video sans makeup. I just use audio so, no worries. Trust me, she looked better without makeup than I did WITH makeup. And I was in a prom gown, With swim fins . When I was dating, Tinder referred to firewood and not a hookup app  (Yet, with either one, I'd worry about who was holding the axe.), so it was interesting to hear her perspectives on dating in the modern age. Kealy talks about a great first date and how she successfully avoided working for a moving company of potential serial killers.. She aces "Which Is Better/Which is Worse?"  a game that I made up that I will likely lose the pieces to. She teaches me how a guy should ask her out (Hint: Begging and pleading does not make the cut.) Plus! MeToo dating! How men screw up dates( We do!)! Weird Al breakup therapy! Why Kealy is openly discusses her sex life! (Be thankful that your Sherpa did not) A stoop grows in Brooklyn! And the story of how the lovely Sherpa bride came in the picture, even though Panera Bread thinks the Sherpa is a cheapskate!  Kealy, like the guests I've had on so far, was a real pleasure to speak with. She's clearly comfortable in her own skin, and was very down-to-earth  Check out her podcast, but wear headphones! I'm sure at some point in her future, she will meet a great guy who will treat her the way women deserve to be treated. Someone that nice deserves that happiness. She stresses that men should listen...and if you're listening to her podcast, you're on the right path.  So, what else this week? It's a continuation of the Allison Sharpe Admiration Society! Thank you soooo much for the kind words about Too Many Podcasts! Hopefully, it will grow my listenership, or I'll have to revisit that begging and pleading again. Also, more Sherpa Suggestions for dating and sex podcasts. Follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Don't can email your podcast suggestions, or mention your podcast to or leave me a voicemail on the Anchor app. Either one could end up on a future show, so come on and get famous! And leave a positive review, because this show is for you! (Darn, I forgot to ask Kealy about bad poetry!) Kealy's contact info: "Dating Talk with Kealy"-podcast, IG: @datingtalkwithkealy; Twitter- @datingtalkwithk; email Kealy's podcast suggestions: My Favorite Murder, It's Not She, It's You Sherpa Suggestions for the week: U Up?; I Don't Get It; Unsolicited Advice with Ashley and Taryne, Call Her Daddy,; Speaking of Sex With The Pleasure Mechanics That's it for this week's Sherpa Sheet!
