Last minute guest/podcast MVP: Dr. Daryl Wilson of the Bollweevils (Episode 920)

Sunday, January 14 in the Chicago area was, by all accounts, miserable. The windchill dipped well below zero and it was the kind of day where no one wanted to leave the warmth of their home.

I had a rescheduled podcast interview planned for the afternoon; so, weather be damned, I was going to make the trip to the west suburbs to get it done. Unfortunately, my guest forgot about the rescheduled date (after he had to cancel the previous one due to weather). That left me cold and bitter with a car set up for a podcast interview. I didn’t want to shut everything down and call it a day; instead, I called my friend Dr. Daryl Wilson of the Bollweevils, who happened to live 10 minutes from the interview location.

Discussed in our unplanned and impromptu chat:
*Daryl’s recent appearance on NBC-5 to talk about staying safe in the weather.
*I got a battery-powered snowblower.
*2023: Great year for the Bollweevils
*The band is recording a new song this month!
*Daryl’s creative process
*Screen time and youths
*Influencer culture
*Banana bread
