Question 65 // Hey, Can I Come To Your Sci-Fi Convention? (feat. Jonathan Palmer)

Jonathan Palmer is the president of one of the midwest’s largest sci-fi/fantasy conventions, CONvergence. I’ve never been to a sci-fi/fantasy convention before and when a friend told me it was taking place while I was in town, I knew I had to check it out!
 
I reached out to Jonathan to sit down and learn more about the convention, but what ended up taking place was a conversation that taught me about community, solidarity, identity, and how, if it weren’t for racism, a map of Minneapolis' highways would look entirely different. 
 
Join me as I sit down with JP, over Scotch, for a conversation that is… the reason I do this podcast.
 
Recording Location: CONvergence Convention, (The Hyatt Hotel) Downtown Minneapolis.

Question 64 // What Do You Have Against Minnesota? (feat. John Mark Nelson)

John Mark Nelson is a songwriter & producer living and working in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Well… For now. 
 
Why’s John moving to LA? Why does he think artists should recognize that you can control outlook, but not outcome? How does John define curiosity? 
 
Join me as I sit down with John, over beers, to record our first actual conversation to answer these questions and more.

A Curious Endeavor - “Just Board The Damn Flight.”

I’ve had this flight to Nashville booked for the past two months. It leaves in five hours… and I’m not sure I’m gonna get on it.

 

All of a sudden, I realize what’s holding me back isn’t rational decision making just because I don’t know where I’m going to sleep the next few nights, it’s actually my insecurity about the uncertainty of life and desperate subconscious attempts to force things to work out the way I planned.

 

That’s not the way life works and I need something to help me let go of my need to have it all figured out.

 

I need a curious endeavor.

 

Screw it… I’m boarding the damn flight.
