Live With Greg – Season 9 Episode 77 – A Gentleman’s Gentleman
Robert Monegan is truly a gentleman's gentleman. He has lived his life defiantly fabulous from day one. From everything I have heard about the man, and from my own experience, this is true. He has been in my corner, supporting my creative path, like no-one else. And more importantly, he has persevered with his own artistic vision through all the challenges. I believe we both would admit the biggest challenge is ourselves. If we could just get out of our own damn way... But I digress. I am deeply honored that he shared himself so openly. More important; I am deeply honored to consider this man family. Now, with a toss of our hair, let's get to it. Filmmaker, Writer, Director, Artist. Robert Monegan has three films, THE EYES OF THE WORLD, DRIVE, and DOUBLE A, he wrote, directed, and currently screening in various film festivals. Future projects include a live action film based on his Glam Divas characters, and producing his play, DEFIANTLY FABULOUS - a gay/comedic twist on the classic 1958 Tony Curtis/Sidney Poitier film, The Defiant Ones. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm13671392/ http://glamdivas.net/home.html #D11 #livewithgreg

Live With Greg – Season 9 Episode 76 – Like A Sunday Morning
Andre Jackson is one of the most content, easy going people I know… like a Sunday morning. This man, along with my brother, Aaron, enlightened me to the artist Prince. And 'Dre turned me on to dance music, hip-hop, soul, funk... I used to be a "disco sucks" eunuch; 'Dre is a major part of the cure. We touched on some of the stories he has of the mountain tops he's summited. What is most important to me is his gratitude for life as it is. There is a lot to be learned from the Grace in which he lives - a man who celebrates the mere fact he woke up to another day. #D11 #livewithgreg

Live With Greg – Season 9 Episode 75 – Celluloid Heroes
My second episode of S9 was pure delight. Tony Vidal, founder/creator of Prankster Entertainment, invited me to be an intimate part of his journey in feature films. It is a gift in my life I am deeply grateful for. And as many know, a lot of the stories of storytelling are behind the scenes of the story being told. I think this is a great insight into a person's creative journey, the choices made - and what has remained important through it all. AND - I highly recommend checking out the current features produced by Prankster Entertainment: The Prankster, Baja, and Free Byrd. The uphold Prankster Entertainment's mission: We live in a fascinating and crucial time. Now more than ever there is a need for uplifting movies that lighten the heart and expand awareness. To put people in touch with the sacred has always been the ultimate purpose of storytelling. Prankster Entertainment’s goal is to inspire and awaken, through entertaining human stories geared for a mass audience. We invite you to journey with us into this realm of hope and joy. #D11 #livewithgreg

Live With Greg – Season 9 Episode 74 – Where Do the Children Play
Season 9 begins with a good friend: Paula Mierzejewski! I have enjoyed meeting up with her for a great cup of coffee (thank you Red Whale) and an even greater conversation. We're both interested in exploring "what is life?", "how can I improve?", and generally sharing our experiences of being alive. Some of it uplifting, some of it challenging, all enlightening. I think we both share that general approach to life. As a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, I believe Paula has expressed to me her more inclined to work with children and elders. (I think I qualify for both — which isn't necessarily a compliment.) This is taken from her website, https://paulamierzejewski.com: I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) who provides therapy for children, teens and adults. I received my Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology from Dominican University in San Rafael, CA in 2014, and have a B.A. degree in English from the University of New Haven in West Haven, CT. This is my second career after having worked 25 years in the legal field. My life’s experience enables me to be a better therapist for my clients. After working several years as an elementary school counselor for the Waugh School District in Petaluma I moved into private practice. My primary goal is to help others find happiness and success within themselves, within their family and within their peer relationships. I think this is a wonderful start to a new season; and I am looking forward to our next cup o' joe! #D11 #livewithgreg

Live With Greg – Season 8 Episode 73 – The Human Solution (bonus episode)
Season 8 has a bonus episode — this one. I met Mirtha over a year ago. Online. Over our mutual endeavor of making movies. Mirtha's second film is based on documented facts; a fictional story based in Sweden about the government supported practice of eugenics. Eugenics literally means “well-born,” and it is the belief system that has fostered the nazi holocaust, and apparently is still in practice here in the united states — and throughout other parts of the world. Mirtha's information is important to me. Due to her schedule next year, as she is off to produce her third film, our only opportunity to record an episode came at the end of this year… and thus, you have a bonus episode of Live With Greg. Mirtha can be contacted via her linked in account: https://www.linkedin.com/in/mirtha-vega-9b5608200/ And her film, The Human Condition, is available on Amazon Prime: https://bit.ly/human-solution I hope you appreciate this episode as much as I do... #D11 #livewithgreg

Live With Greg – Season 8 Episode 71 – The Furb
Episode Seventy-One brings me back to the beginning: Chris Furbee is why I have a podcast. He was my first guest... we recorded the episode with an idea for a joke. To ask a question and then be silent for as long as we could possibly go. And here we are almost nine years later. Chris has Huntington's Disease - and capitalizing that disease seems a mistake to me. I've always pictured it as a fuse that is lit in one's body and there is no way to put it out... and it keeps burning down to an explosion. Chris created a documentary about his Mom passing from the disease and him finding out he also had it. It is quite powerful to watch. It is free for the public on YouTube: Huntington's Dance. He is quite open in this interview. I am grateful he is my friend; and I'm grateful for the time he gave me for this episode of LWG.

Live With Greg – Season 8 Episode 70 – Still Waters Run Deep
September 2021, episode 70, is with a good friend; Brook. Though our paths don't often meet up, she is someone I've known for many years - and feel close to regardless of time between visits. I've always admired her strength, and this episode I got a little glimpse into the depth from which such strength is forged from... this one's an honor, people. #enjoy

August 2021, episode 69, is an encore visit with Molly de Vries. She has truly been a dear friend, someone I've grown close to. AND!... more importantly, she is a Zero Waste warrior! An Earth liaison for community - us lay people & governing bodies - and the entities dealing with waste management. Molly is spear-heading the work to remove single-serve cups from Mill Valley: "Help Mill Valley launch a first-of-its-kind reusable lending-cup program to end single-use waste." So - let's get a link on here for her fund-raiser: Her knowledge and experience with zero waste and the business of waste management is far deeper then we were able to get to; we just are scratching the surface with this episode.

Live With Greg – Season 8 Episode 68 – Live With Grace
July's episode is with a very special guest; Ashlyn Thomas. Ashlyn was born with spina bifida "— a term that means “split spine” — is a condition that occurs when the brain, spinal cord, or the membranes that cover them (meninges) do not completely develop." However, what is most important about Ashlyn is her outlook on life and her gratitude for being alive. In her presence, I feel a joyful abundance - a light that shines beyond the finite duality of this world. I think... it is Grace. Something Ashly has in abundance. I am very grateful for the opportunity she gave me for this episode. Enjoy!

In his own words, my dear friend Peter Nevins is an "Artist | Printmaker | Troubadour". There are two people I am aware of, whom I consider friends, that are living a truly creative life.

Live With Greg – Season 8 Episode 66 – The Flow
This episode was amazing. First off, Michelle is an amazing woman; and I am honored to be friends with her. The lady is fire!! AND, i am grateful for her giving her time for this episode... truth be told; it isn't her favorite - and she still greenlit it to go live. That's the kind of champion she is. So, I am going to follow-up with her link to her site: https://www.michellevenezianodo.net And here bio, and I hope her knowledge helps you get your juices flowing!

Live With Greg – Season 8 Episode 65 – Racial Equity Transformation
This episode is a wonderful follow-up to last month's episode. Below is from Deborah's bio... and her sharing her time for this episode is a great gift. I hope you accept this gift with the grace with which it was given. If you're interested in contacting her, she may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Deborah McKnight has been centering race and racial equity for over 30 years. She believes in the power of strong and equitable instructional environments to change lives. Upon moving to the US Virgin Islands from her native New York and implementing the first special education model of its kind on the island of St. John she witnessed this firsthand. There she was voted “Best Teacher” by the community and the Virgin Islands Daily News because of her ability to positively impact the lives of her students.

It is good medicine; this season eight opener. Toast is one of my brothers; blood in - blood out. And I learned from this meeting with him... so I am grateful for this going live. Perhaps, you, too, will learn from our conversation... If nothing else, as Toast says in his out-going message: ...be good to yourself. What better wish is there for somebody?

Live With Greg – Season 7 Episode 63 – Chickeebob
Bob Wertzberger - daaaammmnnnnn! There is nothing but a good vibe in my life from this gentleman! Wertz introduced me to a lot of the music that first formed my appreciation for... Rock n Roll! Van Halen, AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, U.F.O.… all first heard with, and because of, Wertzberger! We liked it loud. We even had a lunch hour radio show that we pre-recorded and broadcast in the HHS cafeteria. Not yet open to the nuance of genre — and plethora of possibility — it was a very one-sided presentation of the music listened to by the student body. Wertz was one of my solid hang-outs, adventurers, buddies… and it was great to hang with him again, in the autumn of our years… and find that brotherhood is as solid today as it ever was. I recommend listening to more of his music, under the names: Bobnoxious: Soundcloud | Pandora Chickeebob: BA Punk | Facebook | Hear Now

Live With Greg – Season 7 Episode 62 – Black Lives Matter
I appreciate this episode very much - with a close friend and guide; Marc Wendt. I trust him absolutely with the potentially volatile topic we broached this episode - and I know he has a solid experience in dissecting and learning about his own place in a racist system. And he is devoted to being part of the healing and eradication of racism. So... we ventured forth. Part of my trust stems from the knowledge from experience that our faux pas aren't game-stoppers; they're to be learned from - part of the process of healing. Thus, I don't need to avoid areas of challenge. I hope you, also, appreciate this timely episode. If interested, the course Marc refers to is, “heal thyself diversity intensive for people racialized as white”. More about it - and signing up can be found here: https://www.intersectionformankind.com/remember-institute-courses/healthyself And if you are interested in hiring an amazing, and very dedicated life coach in your life - I highly recommend working wit…

Live With Greg – Season 7 Episode 61 – Shadows and Light
One of my favorite songs is by Joni Mitchell: Shadows and Light. I have the pleasure of presenting another great artist, Nora Bruhn. I came across her work via the Paint The Void Project in San Francisco. This great, big, gorgeous flower erupted on my screen - full bloom. I chatted with Nora and found her to be very open... and luckily, she's green lit this episode of LWG. She's a neighbor, an artist, and a brave creative explorer of this physical realm - we definitely got into a discussion about shadows and light. You can explore more about her here: https://www.konorebi.com And I think I'd be remiss to not have link to Paint the Void: "Giving grants to artists for safeguarding hope and beauty in the wake of COVID-19" https://paintthevoid.org/ ...you'll learn a lot about Nora in this episode. Again, her openness I found very refreshing - and damn; she's talented! Enjoy #D11 #LWG

Live With Greg – Season 7 Episode 60 – An Open-mind and a Willingness to be Guided
Episode Sixty… is an episode that should have happened a long time ago. Christopher is a brother—heart to heart. Like a true brother, He's pissed at me sometimes. And he pisses me off sometimes. We went through a pretty heavy bout about a year ago... half a year ago... ?? I'm not sure. But we were talking with each other within a week's time; when he gave me a raving testimonial for my skills as a producer. He took me off the streets, and has shared his intimate life with me from day one of us knowing each other. AND... if you want someone who can help you kick what ever addiction is driving you nuts; he's a number one coach/sponsor. Here's his Clean & Sober site: https://www.cleanandsobercoach.com He's got a work in progress, interviews and exploration about Love, Sex, and Relationships: https://ahumanaffair.com/ He's the most honest person I know, struggling in the mire of "who am i?" like the rest of us.

Season 7 starts off well, with special guest Dr. Leslie Purchase. I met Leslie when she reached out to her community, wanting to communicate with diverse perspectives from her own. As she put it, "Recently, I have been doing some reading that has challenged me to recognize the cognitive biases and faulty thinking that probably has led me to some incorrect conclusions in life." I met with her and appreciated the dialogue and open communication. More and more I experience the healing balm communication is. It brings us together. I hope you enjoy this new episode of LIVE WITH GREG... or LIVE WITH GREG, depending on your pronunciation.

I am extremely grateful for this episode; it is a Divine Gift to finish strong. Season Six I don't think could finish any stronger. I have three living mothers in my life right now; my blood mom and two others who love me deeply and are Spiritual guides. This is one of them; Momz (Addie). I know Momz to be a deeply loving, strong human being… and have come to know her even more deeply in recent years. (She helped raise me since high school) I was not expecting to learn such a moving story of challenges overcome. And what is most important to me; overcome with nothing but Love for all involved. That's real strength/Real Love… and, here's the photo of her with her horse post storm in Nicaragua. Enjoy!

I was going to use apocalypse in the name of this episode… it seems more fitting to use something upbeat; supportive. And I don't really think it's the new Mother Nature taking over — I think she's just speaking with more strength so we'll listen. This is a very exciting episode for me, with special guest, Mark Northcross. His experience and first-hand accounting of what is happening is, well, a solid wake-up call. This is from Mark's LinkedIn bio: I have worked as a public finance professional since 1981. I started at John Nuveen & Company, became of founding partner of Kelling Northcross & Nobriga, and then started my own firm with Craig Hill in 1996, where I have been since. Prior to 1981 I was an environmental consultant, preparing and presenting EIR's for California cities and counties.

Live With Greg – Season 6 Episode 50 – Friendship, Love and Truth
It is truly an honor to have as my guest for episode 50, historian and Odd Fellow, Peter Sellars. Peter and I were in the same class at Hayward High School. I knew he joined the Marines right out of high school - and we pretty much lost track of each other until a high school reunion a few years back. I recently heard him on a different podcast talk about the conspiracy against the leaders of the United States of which Lincoln's assassination was a part of. I was also very interested in his quest to find out how the moral code of the Odd Fellows, "Friendship, Love and Truth", was upheld during the United States Civil War. I, too, find it of upmost interest and a personal goal - to uphold the practice and valor of Love at the times when it is most challenging to myself. The following is from his current book, How Friendship, Love, and Truth, Survived the American Civil War... and I hope you appreciate episode 50 as much as I do.

He's also an actor, musician/rapper, stand-up comedy… is there anything this guy doesn't do? What I've observed and come to admire, is he is always himself.

A tribute to those suffering from any disease. It is a tribute to those who survive to see the light on the other end of their long day's journey into night — and a prayer for this who won't this time 'round. I'm deeply grateful to Barbara's sharing her intimate journey with me… and for her giving the green light — even with Daisy, who is not a poltergeist, digging her way through the living-room carpet… don't worry — she stops after a bit.

Live With Greg – Season 6 Episode 47 – A Deeper Look
This is a follow-up episode. Barry really wanted to be able to show his work. He expressed interest in wanting to do a follow-up… And it makes sense to me: The picture is worth ten thousand words. So — i threw out the standard sitting down format that I've been working with for the past five seasons and we shot episode 47 Cinéma Vérité style. Besides; my quest is to find the rules that can't be broken and live by them. Barry may not agree, an artist's work is very personal to them — yes? However, I think in the infinite energy of life, Barry reaches into the flow and pulls out a moment, maintaining the essence of the infinite and showing it in a caught moment. I especially see it with his dogmotion series — there is one image in particular that remains with me; communicating infinite life in motion. However, art is best experienced for oneself. So I hope you enjoy this off the rule book episode 47. And I recommend checking out all Barry's works that he has online at: bar…

Live With Greg – Season 6 Episode 46 – Patience (Season opener)
Season Six opens with someone I am very fond of — he sets a fine example for me. I see in him a lot of the attributes I want to live strongly by; mostly Joy and Patience. Needless to say, I am very heartened to be opening my sixth season with him as a guest. This bio is from his website: Photography intrigued me as a teenager, I attended my first workshop in 1973 at The Naples Mills School of Arts and Crafts near Ithaca, New York. My college career yielded a BA in photography from Goddard College in 1978 and included a semester at the San Francisco Art Institute. My vision is to capture and express images that both embrace and reach beyond the here and now. Photography is an alchemical process – the subject is the raw material, the gold is an image that expresses universal truth beyond that subject, one that makes us think and remember, and ultimately, see the world in a new and different light.

Live With Greg – Season 5 Episode 45 – Kismet (Season Finale)
For the season finale of LWG, I had the honor to share time with September Williams, MD and Sarah E. Kornfeld. My words are going to fall short at this time to describe who they are and what our conversation was about. I can say it was at a telling time in US History as a new supreme court justice had been nominated and was going through the hearings involved with the confirmation process. This was taped about a month ago and a lot has transpired since that taping. Besides an overall uplifting, what I recall that wonderful afternoon spent with September and Sarah, is the healing communication regarding the charged political event of that confirmation process — and the overall bravery I witnessed in both women. Since words are falling short, or time and energy on my part, I am posting from their bios more about September & Sarah. September Williams is an American physician-writer, bioethicist and filmmaker.

Live With Greg – Season 4 Episode 36 – Life Constellations
Season four ends with Rev. Katherine Revoir. I've practiced with Katherine for a while, and was very fortunate to be granted this time spent with her... it is wonderful when opportunity allows me to see through my preconceived notions of an individual. I found in Katherine an experienced, kind, and supportive person... who has found her way through challenging times. As she said, she's gotten down to her knees and stayed there. :-) I hope you enjoy this finale episode of season four... for more information about Rev. Katherine Revoir, please visit her site at http://richerliving.org

Live With Greg – Season 4 Episode 34 – Gentle Awakenings
I was going to title this, "A Gentle Heart". I've named it after the book that "Kimmie" authored, GENTLE AWAKENINGS. I received a fabulous gift in being introduced to C. K. Chipman-Jonsson, and having her approval to do an episode with me. There are many gentle hearts I have met on this planet — she is one of the main ones shining the way. I think we all have gentleness in us. To live it moment to moment is a practice; one Kimmie took up long ago. The gift of her being still resonates with me. Perhaps you shall find a gift in her episode here. Enjoy. For every heart there is a season and like a skipping stone, we touch down briefly, before we disappear into the sea of life." ~ C. K. Chipman-Jonsson - Gentle Awakenings

Live With Greg – Season 4 Episode 31 – Mom
It is the day before my Mother's 81st birthday… if anyone knows about the trials, tribulations, and joys of living with Greg — she does. i have a vivid memory of my mom, angry face with wooden spoon in hand, heading my way with intent to kill, or at least severely wound. and her chasing me around the dining-room table… same spoon, same intent—might have been a different time. :-) i also have a vivid memory of my mom telling me that the miracle was not only possible—it was happening. and it did. Margie Fincham moved to Nicaragua a couple of years ago: it is her home. Her heart is clearly there — and clearly with her family, too. i am still learning to love her; and grateful that she is still here for me to learn from in person.

Live With Greg – Season 4 Episode 28 – Living Hope
Alright; Season Four starts off with a "Bang!". I had the pleasure, honor and opportunity to hang out with one of my dear friends, Christina Gerber. I can't tell you all she is in my life because I honestly don't know... and I think she is one of the few people in my life that I feel that way about. Her experiences and practices are way beyond my bounds of knowledge and sometimes beyond my areas of comfort. That said, I trust her implicitly and I'm really pleased that she is willing to start Season Four off... and she bravely does so. You can learn more about her with these links: http://ChristinaGerber.com Links to My Affiliates and Favorite Vendors: My Nikken Wellness Store, StarWest, Young Living & ZNatural http://StellarSkulls.com Transform with your favorite crystal skull The Crystalline Stellar Skulls are angelic, sentient beings who came to Team Earth.

Live With Greg – Season 3 Episode 26 – Systems of Consciousness
I had the pleasure of hanging out with Michael Gusek for episode #26. I first came to know of Michael from an article about his work with artificial intelligence and mass unstructured data. This is a topic of fascination for me. Learning that he lived close by, I contacted him with an invite to be a guest for LIVE WITH GREG. …and he agreed!! Michael is an "A.I. Product Professional", co-founder of Sensai - which recently was acquired by Sovereign Intelligence. "With our proprietary library of full-spectrum Internet data and our new deep learning platform, we find patterns in large textual datasets, whether external to the network or internal to the enterprise." We discussed AI, evolution of thoughts - shifts and struggles consciousness undergoes in its evolutionary shifts. For me - I could have hung out a lot longer then I did. I hope you enjoy this one! https://twitter.com/mgusek555 https://www.linkedin.com/in/gusek

Live With Greg – Season 3 Episode 25 – Encore Episode
You know, sometimes getting a guest for LWG can be... um... challenging. And I knew that was part of doing a regularly scheduled show - that's in part why I'm doing it; to learn about that. However, I have no regrets at all that my youngest daughter stepped in to guest on episode 25. We'd just got back from the Zero Breast Cancer Dipsea Hike - and we're shalaxing - and she agreed to do this episode with me. Her first one is one of my favorites; I'm happy to have her back. So sit back and enjoy the company of one of the best human beings I know; Bodhi.

It's 9/11. I'm grateful that this episode is with one of the strongest human beings i've ever known.. and he's physically strong; more important to me - his Spirit is strong. JT Peterson of Ripped Body Fitness honored me with his time and energy for episode 24. I've been graced with the opportunity to work out with JT, his brother Jake and training coach Marcus... I've learned about health, physical fitness and nutrition. Most importantly, I've learned by their example that it all comes from our strength of spirit. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I do - and if you're looking for support to help you change your life for the best, look up JT and Ripped Body Fitness. ~ Peace ~ RBF Official Site: http://rippedbodyfit.com/ RBF Podcast, "Vibe With Us": http://bit.ly/vibe-with-us RBF Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ripped-Body-Fitness/1469588589968861 JT Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jtfit89/ JT SnapChat: jtfit89

For episode 23, I hung out with my close friend and brother, Timothy Talbot — or "Talbs" as he is often referred by. And mostly…? I listened. The man can spin a tale, I must say, as good as any Irish man can. There's some gems here - enjoy. :-) Tim's IMDb: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2074441/

Live With Greg – Season 3 Episode 22 – Side by Side
Well... this episode I have another technical glitch. This time the camera didn't record everything... however, the external mic got it all - and really, what is being communicated is what is most important - right? This episode I had the honor of spending time with Catherine Stone. I was introduced to her by my eldest daughter, Robyn, via helping out with a school project... and I was intrigued by what I saw at Catherine's home - and by Catherine herself. In her own words: "I am a birth and post-partum doula, and a lactation specialist. I support women in birth and afterwards. I teach soul to soul communication between mother and baby (and father and baby)." We discuss the balance of fe/male energies... and a peaceful life. You can learn more about Catherine here: http://motherangel.tumblr.com/about

Live With Greg – Season 3 Episode 21 – Good Medicine
I had the honor of spending time with Dr. Tom Pinkson - a shaman who lives in Marin County. Unfortunately; I wasn't on my best game - I didn't hear all the ambient noise until I was editing... darn it! However, I believe what Tom shared with me that day was very powerful/good information... and worth sharing. So please excuse the "noise" - and if you'd like to learn more about Dr. Pinkson's works, you find more here: http://drtompinkson.com

Live With Greg – Season 3 Episode 20 – Angels Among Us
I was, and remain, extremely honored to have an opportunity to spend time with one of my heroes: Michael Pritchard From his website: Michael Pritchard is a nationally acclaimed keynote speaker praised by the Wall Street Journal, CNN, and Time for his ability to use humor to inspire and educate his audiences on life skills. Using his unique humorous style, he empowers his young audience with social and emotional skills and influences them to make good choices. While in your community, Mr. Pritchard offers sessions for faculty, administration and parents as well as facilitating small break out sessions. I really could go on and on about him; I told you, he's one of my heroes! Probably best if you just sit back and listen… as I did. When in the presence of real-world wisdom: listening is a good idea. :-) If you are interested in Michael's services and gifts, you can find him at his website, michaelpritchard.com
