A Slice of Humble Pie

With over 100 shows of our Spinal Column Radio podcast under my belt — taking my son, Logan, and I coast to coast to interview some of chiropractic’s greatest minds — you can imagine that I’ve got a story or two.

One such story took place in the farmlands just outside of Portland, Oregon.  Logan and I were invited to heft our studio down to the Big Top Legacy Gathering — a regular old-school chiropractic philosophy turnout held under a circus tent. (more…)

Finding Harvey Lillard: Chiropractic’s First Patient — podcasting “6 feet over”

I’m always on the lookout to break from the confines of my studio to record another episode of Spinal Column Radio.  Whether it’s firing up the mic to podcast on a sandy beach, conduct an interview while soaking in a hot tub, or introduce our show at 2500 feet from the backseat of a Cessna, my creative side is always thinking ahead.  Such was the case when I approached Dr. Graeme Gibson for an interview atop the grave of our profession’s first patient:  Harvey Lillard.

Stepping Back in Time: Serenading a Radio Station

August 23, 2013

[originally published in KCN, June 2012]

Certainly you’ve heard a song played on a radio station, but I bet you’ve never heard a song played about a radio station.  Well, thanks to my antique collecting crony, I have.  And would you believe it has a chiropractic connection? (more…)

Baby at 37,000 Feet

Baby at 37,000 feet[originally published in KCN, June 2011]

On a flight home, chiropractor Kevin Donka settled into his seat.  Behind him was a mother with her baby.

As the flight took off, the baby — as many will — began to cry.  The mother did everything in her power to quiet the little one… but to no avail.  The child simply would not calm down.  And then something happened that every parent fears while flying — the child’s cry catapulted to a full-tilt shrill.  Again, the mother tried and tried but the child could not be comforted.

At about minute ten of the full-blown wail, Dr. Donka began to think to himself, “Maybe I should offer to help.  Maybe there is something I can do.”

My eleven year-old audio-engineer son, Logan, and I just returned home from an amazing weekend in New Jersey after taking our Spinal Column Radio podcast studio on the road.  Marking our third time now to the long-standing New Beginnings Chiropractic Philosophy Weekends, we were invited to interview over twenty-one fantastic chiropractors, cover a 60 minute speed coaching event, and conduct a battery of “man on the street” interviews.  By all measures it was a successful weekend!  And then it was time for us to come home.  And to do so we had a battle on our hands.

The Power of the Podcast

November 21, 2011

[originally published in KCN, December 2011]

I love podcasting. I love it for many different reasons. But it’s the “Power of the Podcast” that keeps me coming back.

It’s been nearly two years now since my eleven year-old son, Logan, and I launched our Spinal Column Radio podcast over the “Internet airwaves.” A podcast is essentially a radio show that you can listen to on the Internet at your convenience — no need to tune in at a particular time. Ours, as you may have guessed, is about chiropractic. Our father-son team works because Logan wants to be a chiropractor like Dad and has a knack for technology. That’s why he’s my audio-engineer. As for myself, I love talking about chiropractic — especially behind a microphone.
