Could this be my break, after 10 years, since I
my first podcast on Soild Vox?

and interviews as a guide for implementing ideas into actions,
based on the teachings from Lyceum, Aristotle's school in Athens,
and others that have beeninspired

In the next solo show I will talk about my struggle
with the podcasting workflow, and I will mention guests in the
pipeline, ways to support EGO NetCast, etc.

Too Good For Ordinary People"? ;)
