Episode 2 - Bill Kuhns from VECS and music from Breakaway

Very excited to have Episode 2 done, uploaded and ready for you to listen at

On Episode 2 - I'll interview Bill Kuhns from Vermont Energy Control Systems on how his business got started. It's honestly one the most Vermont & ingenious stories combined that I've heard. I wish I had been able to ask him about his invitation to the IoT event he was invited to inWashington, D.C., but alas I had interviewed him prior to the announcement - but click here for the link to that story.

I've got music from Breakaway again - thanks to Peter Riley and friends for the music!

What's next? I've got author and renaissance woman Thea Lewis, Kris Jarrett from Lake Champlain Maritime Museum and two local knifemakers coming up along with several new musicians in the mix on upcoming episodes.

Not enough? I'm also planning to add in quick recurring guest updates about local Vermont Craft Beer, local food & drink and upcoming VT events you should know about in upcoming episodes!

Pondering Over Podcast Music

As I piece the podcast together - I'm running into an issue. A lack of *authentic* music.

Now, I'll be honest. I own some royalty free production music - but none really seems to click as being *right* for the podcast. We have such a great collection of musicians locally, and because music is a language that speaks to so many of us, it seems like a good foundation for the podcast.

Here's what I'm asking: If you're a local Vermont musician or band submit your contact info. Leave a link to song(s) or samples on the web - or we can figure out another way to get your music to my ears. I want to also interview artists and bands - but I'll leave that as an optional thing if you're less about talking and more about allowing your music to speak for you.

Here's what I will do if I play your music in an episode. Your artist or band name will be mentioned in the episode at least once (e.g., 'That was ___ song by _____ artist'). Your artist or band name will be in the episode description your music is played on. If provided, I'll put your link in the description and original blog post promoting the podcast episode during which your music is played.

Again, if you are a local Vermont artist or band who is interested, reach out to me through my contact form here and let's start the conversation.

Cheers and happy listening! (soon)
