The second episode of my little podcast is live with my best friend Tanner Smith - we talk about the funny origin of our friendship, what "home" means to us, and how our priorities have shifted since college.

Subscribe to the email newsletter! Behind the lens of that camera, Tanner Smith is an original. He's caring, interesting, quirky, weird, intelligent, and he's my best friend. In this episode, he and I talk about the concept of home, and comfort, and contentedness, and how our priorities have changed since we lived together for three years in college. I also talked briefly to Lindsay Ratowski, the creator of the Fifty Coffees site ...

This is a fun one: I go home in the latest podcast episode of #TheMiddle , and I talk to an old friend about her time as a schoolteacher in #Jacksonville . Then we swap stories about our grandparents and discuss whether women and men can have meaningful friendships.

We all know people who just get us. No matter what's going on, you understand what's going on in the other person's brain, and what that person is feeling, and how they really are. For me, Annelyse Giovannitti is one of those people. We've been friends since seventh grade, and little has stood in our way since. In the third full episode of the show, Annelyse gets me a little wine-tipsy, talks about a few years teaching at a primarily...

I've always wanted to write a bit about Andrea Pirlo and his beard. For +The18!

Twelve years after losing in the final, Juventus has taken the long path back to the UCL final four.

The #USWNT announced its expected roster, so here are five storylines to watch as the World Cup approaches. My latest for +The18:

#soccer #canada #football 
The World Cup in Canada is less than two months away, and the field is the tournament’s strongest ever.

For +The18: Liverpool's season was doomed, then a red card happened, then it was exciting, then a red card happened, and now it might be doomed again.

After Steven Gerrard’s speedy sending off, Liverpool are five points out of a Champions League spot.

Apologies are no longer necessary at Dortmund. +Borussia Dortmund's fortunes are changing. My latest for +The18:

#BVB09   #soccer   #germany   #MarcoReus   #Aubameyang   #football   #bundesliga  
Dortmund thoroughly handled rivals Schalke to move to 10th in the Bundesliga with 11 games left.

Here's a two-year-old moment of sporting madness for your Monday. For +The18:
 
As this season ends, let's take a look at perhaps the most dramatic finish to a semifinal ever. These 17 seconds are amazing. As the announcer says, "Do not scratch your eyes! You are really seeing the most extraordinary finish here." http://bit.ly/wat-lei
A twice-saved penalty and a mad dash of madness sent Watford to the Championship playoff Final in 2013.

Lindsay Ratowsky, the creator of FiftyCoffees.com, was nice enough to pick up her phone when i called her for the newest episode of #TheMiddle . We talked about her work journey, and how she started to feel creative after spending so much time around creatives.

I've already mentioned her a few times, so it's about time I talked to Lindsay Ratowsky. The Californian turned New Yorker is the creator of Fifty Coffees, the site that sparked the idea for this podcast. Her site - where she interviews the creatives in her life and blogs about who they are and what she learns from them - was named one of the best 35 personal portfolios on the web. Aside from her site, Lindsay and I talked about her ...

Ten games are left and the title race is over, but we can still have a little fun! I put a 'Crap Level' ranking on each #PremierLeague team for +The18.

#soccer #football #epl #mufc #mcfc #lfc #afc #arsenal #thfc #scfc #tottenham #spurs
With 10 games remaining in the EPL season, we look back at each team’s preseason predictions and how they’ve fared so far.

Here's the pilot episode of my new podcast, called The Middle, with aspiring improv comedy performer John Wernecke. He's about to make a big move.

Thanks for listening! Sign up for my newsletter to get emails about new episodes. I'm really, really happy to send this out into the world.

In the pilot episode of The Middle, I explain the idea for the show and avoid being hit by that big fern branch. Then, my first guest is John Wernecke. He and I talk about his recent, big decision, and about comedy, ambition, and being two white guys. Sign up for the email newsletter, which means you'll get an email when I publish new episodes. The show is available on iTunes (!!), and will be on Stitcher and Overcast soon.
