Live With Greg – Season 7 Episode 57 – Habibi

Season 7 continues, still, in quarantine. 2020 is historically, on a global level, one of the strangest recorded times in human history.

And Habibi remains, for me, on a global scale, one of the most beloved and amazing human beings I know.

She’s honored me with a third guest spot, for the third episode of Live With Greg.

 

Live With Greg – Season 7 Episode 56 – Cloistered

Season 7 continues in quarantine. It is the year of COVID-19 – and I am with Kayla Thomas; roommate and second guest of season seven.

 

Live With Greg – Season 7 Episode 55 – Anew

Season 7 starts off well, with special guest Dr. Leslie Purchase. I met Leslie when she reached out to her community, wanting to communicate with diverse perspectives from her own. As she put it, “Recently, I have been doing some reading that has challenged me to recognize the cognitive biases and faulty thinking that probably has led me to some incorrect conclusions in life.” I met with her and appreciated the dialogue and open communication.

More and more I experience the healing balm communication is. It brings us together.

I hope you enjoy this new episode of LIVE WITH GREG… or LIVE WITH GREG, depending on your pronunciation.

 

Live With Greg – Season 6 Episode 54 – From Momz, with Love

I am extremely grateful for this episode; it is a Divine Gift to finish strong.

Season Six I don’t think could finish any stronger.

I have three living mothers in my life right now; my blood mom and two others who love me deeply and are Spiritual guides.

This is one of them; Momz (Addie).

I know Momz to be a deeply loving, strong human being… and have come to know her even more deeply in recent years. (She helped raise me since high school) I was not expecting to learn such a moving story of challenges overcome. And what is most important to me; overcome with nothing but Love for all involved.

That’s real strength/Real Love…

and, here’s the photo of her with her horse post storm in Nicaragua.

Enjoy!

Live With Greg – Season 6 Episode 53 – Effective Communication

This month’s podcast guest is a real treat. We rarely see each other; and Miriam is definitely a friend.

She’s also “a coach, mediator, lawyer, negotiator and linguist—a master communicator&hellp; Mom, wife, (mentioned) friend…

And as her current career path is concentrating on communication, well, I am excited about this one.

I know of no other healing balm more powerful then communication. To quote one of my favorite books, “Communication ends separation.”

So, let’s join together… and travel into this realm of exploring effective communication, community and the ending of separation.

Oh, ye—if you’d like to know more about Miriam, perhaps ask her for aid in your life, she can be found at https://moderatr.com.

ENJOY

 

Live With Greg – Season 6 Episode 52 – Ramble On

I met Travis Summer Deuel at the West Point Inn Father’s Day Pancake Breakfast… and we started talking about comedy and stand-up. So – we met up and hung out to continue celebrating a mutual fascination… and we rambled quite a bit. Seemed like moments to me… except that I was going on about partnership.

Enjoy, Partner…

 

Live With Greg – Season 6 Episode 51 – New Mother Nature Taking Over

I was going to use apocalypse in the name of this episode… it seems more fitting to use something upbeat; supportive.

And I don’t really think it’s the new Mother Nature taking over — I think she’s just speaking with more strength so we’ll listen.

This is a very exciting episode for me, with special guest, Mark Northcross. His experience and first-hand accounting of what is happening is, well, a solid wake-up call.

This is from Mark’s LinkedIn bio:
I have worked as a public finance professional since 1981. I started at John Nuveen & Company, became of founding partner of Kelling Northcross & Nobriga, and then started my own firm with Craig Hill in 1996, where I have been since. Prior to 1981 I was an environmental consultant, preparing and presenting EIR’s for California cities and counties.

And this? …is lyrics from The Guess Who’s song…

‘Cause it’s the new mother nature taking over
It’s the new splendid lady come to call
It’s the new mother nature taking over
She’s gettin’ us all
She’s gettin’ us all

 

Live With Greg – Season 6 Episode 50 – Friendship, Love and Truth

It is truly an honor to have as my guest for episode 50, historian and Odd Fellow, Peter Sellars. Peter and I were in the same class at Hayward High School. I knew he joined the Marines right out of high school – and we pretty much lost track of each other until a high school reunion a few years back.

I recently heard him on a different podcast talk about the conspiracy against the leaders of the United States of which Lincoln’s assassination was a part of. I was also very interested in his quest to find out how the moral code of the Odd Fellows, “Friendship, Love and Truth”, was upheld during the United States Civil War. I, too, find it of upmost interest and a personal goal – to uphold the practice and valor of Love at the times when it is most challenging to myself.

The following is from his current book, How Friendship, Love, and Truth, Survived the American Civil War… and I hope you appreciate episode 50 as much as I do. (you can purchase the book with this link):

Peter V. Sellars is a recognized historian in the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. His first two history books, The Independent Order of Odd Fellows in the City of San Francisco and Calling Out From The Past: The First Odd Fellows Home in California, were well received.

In 2005, he established a fraternal museum in San Francisco to maintain books and other items unique to the Odd Fellows. The offices that he has held in the Order have given him greater access to sources, materials, and contacts throughout the United States, which led to the creation of this most recent book relating the Odd Fellows to the Civil War. Sellars holds a BS degree from California State University, Hayward (East Bay), and is retired from the U.S. Marine Corps. He and his wife live in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Live With Greg – Season 6 Episode 49 – Late, Audio, Life

Part of why I continue to do my podcast is a practice in discipline. And adapting to get an episode out is part of the process… so this episode is live – audio only. And it’s late.

…and my special guest is Justin Nesbitt. I met Justin one the production of BAJA—he’s one of the producers. He’s also an actor, musician/rapper, stand-up comedy… is there anything this guy doesn’t do?

What I’ve observed and come to admire, is he is always himself. And he brings and gives kindness equally to everyone in every situation.

You can check out his IMDb—and I hope you enjoy listening to episode forty-nine with my special guest, Justin Nesbitt.

 

Live With Greg – Season 6 Episode 48 – Long Day’s Journey Into Night

This is a tribute interview – a tribute to those who travel this life with Huntington’s Disease. A tribute to Rolando, my guest Barbara Leistico’s husband. A tribute to those suffering from any disease.

It is a tribute to those who survive to see the light on the other end of their long day’s journey into night — and a prayer for this who won’t this time ’round.

I’m deeply grateful to Barbara’s sharing her intimate journey with me… and for her giving the green light — even with Daisy, who is not a poltergeist, digging her way through the living-room carpet… don’t worry — she stops after a bit. (then she starts up again / ha ha ha)
