In this latest behind-the-scenes video, we take an over-the-shoulder look into some of the steps required to build our 288 square foot stage. (We also feature the entertainment styling's of one Wade Roberts.)
There is something joyous about finding an email addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org in my inbox. The stories. The kind words. The photos of groovy listeners from around the globe. So imagine my uber-joy as I proudly added three more folks to the Friends of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast page!
First we have Jason, who hails from Missouri and is clearly capable of any bodyguard duties I may need in the soon or distant future.
Next is Amber, a Las Vegas local who is a very impressive graphics designer. (She’s worked with several casinos here in town.)
And the latest addition is Michael and Melissa, a cute couple from Oregon who are in the midst of buying a short sale home here in Las Vegas.
Welcome all to the site!

On November 23, 1998 I jumped into the entrepreneurial waters. Since then, I’ve started three successful businesses (website design, branded music CDs and Internet broadcasting). For each of those businesses, I’ve been fortunately enough to have, on average, about a 10 foot commute to work.
That is, until about ten days ago.
For some time now, I’ve been working on a concept for a new type of offering from PodWorx. It’s an idea that I’m very excited about and one where the technology has caught up with the vision. It’s never been attempted here in Las Vegas and based on the feedback I’ve received from a group of very smart folks who’ve been briefed (after signing a Non-Disclosure Agreement), there’s a lot to be excited about.
To create the environment necessary for this new concept, I have to expand beyond my existing work environment. As a result, I have found myself in the land of commercial real estate. After a relatively-short search, I was connected with a great guy/landlord and a great space from which to launch this project.
After securing a small amount of funds from outside sources, on August 2nd, 2010, I accepted the keys to my first commercial property! A wave of excitement, fear, anticipation and the unknown washed over me. I’m not a Builder-Bob kind of guy, so I was nervous. Luckily, I have two GREAT friends (Rip and Wade) who are helping me build what I believe will be one of the coolest video studios in town.
The video above is the first of several I’ll be recording during the building process. We're still in stealth mode but I wanted to share the process as best I can. Ten days into the project, I’ve learned a lot, spend a great deal of time at Home Depot and Ahern Rental, and feel as if my credit card is beginning to melt.
Stay tuned. . .
