As I recorded this episode, my son was days away from being born, which means I am days away from becoming a father! I’m taking a break from the mic for a bit but I would never leave my awesome and loyal listeners hanging. So, we’ve dipped into our BEST archived interviews just for you.

In this podcast episode, I get to chat with my dear friend Kirstyn Brown, who at the time was the editor of STRONG Fitness Magazine. When I originally asked Kirstyn to be on the show, I thought we were going to cover a topic I talk about a lot on the show, which is getting published. When she said yes, she said, “I want to interview you.”

This was such a fun hearted show and it’s a great chance to get to know me a little more and hear a little from Kirstyn as well.
