Fear of Failure - S5 E1
We're kicking off Season 5 with a topic we all know about and hardly ever talk about. This all happened after Gerald finally had something in his hands that he was working towards for years. It took that long because of fear. We're covering that in this episode and also talking about another real world example of how you shouldn't listen to others. Do what you want to do! Go for it!

The Locals List (Part 2) - S4 E10
This is a continuation of our previous episode! There were so many people we interviewed and we wanted to add more to a second episode. So here it is! The show notes below are from the previous episode but tell you everything you need to know.  We did a LIVE PODCAST! This episode is a little different. As we've mentioned in some previous episodes, we won Best Podcast in a big local publication - The Bend Magazine. Every year they ask the public to vote for their favorites in "The Locals List". The people in our hometown of Corpus Christi voted and that means the world to us. So we attended the event and did a LIVE Podcast. It was so much fun and definitely not what we expected. We honestly had no idea what to expect, but we did it and we had a blast. Even if you do not live in our hometown (most of you don't), you'll benefit from what these guests have to say. We asked them what they love about their city AND what do they say to those people who claim there is "Nothing to do in my hometown". The answers were all great.  So take a listen and let us know what you think!
