Erika and Kaye continue the discussion about the new tv shows coming out this fall, or as we later realized some that never made their way to air. Wine, Erika’s celebrity man wish list, North Korea and shows to watch on Netflix (after you are done listening to this podcast go watch Derek) are all covered in this episode. Make sure you listen carefully for our exciting impression of Will Arnet in his new sitcom coming out this fall.

Resurrection may be a word that is too strong for this situation. The podcast was never really dead. While not generating new content, people continued to download episodes and listen to them. So while it rests it is still sought as a source. Maybe it’s more like coming out of hibernation.

Sometimes I feel like I need to explain why I took a break from creating new content. I imagine someone, somewhere actually caring that I made, what felt like, the move of the century which upheaved the standard operating procedure of my life and sucked me dry of every bit of energy I could muster just to get by daily; or that it took me 5 months to get my home computer setup and an additional 3 days to get all of the Windows updates completed. There were probably other things that happened that prevented me from working on the podcast, but it doesn’t really matter, because someone(s), somewhere(s) is still downloading what I created over a year ago to listen to what my guests and I have to say and that’s pretty cool.

It’s also very cool that I have friends that have said to me, “Hey when are you going to do a new podcast?” Or, “We should do a new podcast soon about the TV shows coming out again this year.” Hearing these things have encouraged me to think about what I want this to be. I anticipate writing more blogs that may or may not be tied to a specific podcast so be sure to subscribe to updates (hint, hint) of this blog. I anticipate reaching out to a larger spread of friends and acquaintances to learn about how they feel about specific parts of life; securing a place where we can all share our thoughts and feelings and take on the world and share our stories. I want to move the idea from being an educational podcast with solely interviews to being more of an aural art piece for listeners. Some topics will likely be more serious than others. More music will be incorporated to the conversations along with different genres of aural art forms. I’m also toying with the idea of introducing an alter ego to the podcast (doesn’t that sound exciting?), which will hopefully add another layer to the experience.

Thank you for being patient, encouraging and excited. I, too, am now excited to explore the next stage of The Lazy Learner.

I sat down with the National Lutheran Choir Artistic Director, David Cherwien, and Choir President, Katherine Castille to discuss the All Saints Program, the history and the impact it has on the the choir members and those that attend the All Saints concerts. For more information about the National Lutheran Choir please visit www.nlca.com. You can also find their music on iTunes or Spotify.

I have spent about 4 months dealing, or not dealing, with the death of my Grandmother. The looming Halloween holiday, originally meant as a day to celebrate the dead, threw me into thinking about death and how we process grief. I knew I had grief  but I didn’t know what to do with it. How do I process it? I sat down with my friend Katie and she talked (while I cried) about her friend, Heather, their relationship, her sudden death and how those events and everything in between have shaped the person she is today. We hope that while you may not learn about a topic during this episode that you are able to relate to her story in a way that helps you.

The next episode that will be released this week will discuss the All Saints holiday in the Christian religion and how a musical organization incorporates this holiday into their concert series as a service to provide healing to those dealing with death in their life.

For the sake of this podcast I decided to join a Fantasy Football league at work. The only issue was all I knew about fantasy football was that you draft players and you hope they play well to earn you points. I knew if I wanted a better shot at the pot at the end of the fantasy football rainbow that I needed more information. I reached out to my world of Facebook friends and found the spouse of a friend, his name is Pat, that created a Fantasy Football website, www.fandraftic.com. He was kind enough to sit down with me and go over some of the basics and a bit of intricacies of Fantasy Football.

During our conversation we discuss my team that I drafted, which really was a bunch of luck with having 2nd pick. I plan on doing some updates on my team and how I’m doing through out the football season. Just for fun.

RB – DeMarco Murray
QB – Tony Romo
