Crash and Ride – Episode 39: The Thanksgiving 2019 Episode

This week is a very special episode of Crash and Ride! I have compiled my favorite answers to the question “What is the fondest memory you have of a meal that you’ve had?”

I know the holidays are tough for a lot of folks, so I wanted to make a special episode of past guests and maybe help some of my friends find the strength to make it through. Next week will be a regular interview!

The essay I talk about concerning the Waffle House video of Sean Brock and Anthony Bourdain can be found here:


Happy Thanksgiving!

Crash and Ride – Episode 38: Sam Scholten

For Episode 38, I interviewed Sam Scholten from the Louisville band Bon Air. Sam lost his wife Lisa to cancer just a few years ago. We talk about that loss, his recovery from it, and getting on with life without disrespecting the memory of those we’ve loved and lost.

This is the phenomenal West Virginia writer Breece D’J Pancake, a young man who write a handful of blisteringly great stories and then killed himself.


Crash and Ride – Episode 37: Patterson Hood

This week’s episode is an interview I’ve been wanting to do for a long time! I spoke with Patterson Hood, singer/guitar player/songwriter from the band Drive-By Truckers! We talked about the wear and tear that touring puts on your brain, your relationships, your gear, and everything else! We talked about love and loss, and regrets. We talked about how amazing Nuci Space is! It’s a good talk and I’m super proud of it!
