I just wanted to drop a quick note to let all my readers know there is a reason I haven’t been posting a lot lately. In the last few weeks, I have been working with another organization on two very cool projects. The first project is a book I hope to have completed and published next year. This book will detail what my family and I went through going through cancer diagnosis and chemotherapy.
The second item keeping me very busy has been working on the podcasts. Yes, I said podcasts (as in plural). I’ve already mentioned I will be doing a cancer podcast. This project has moved ahead, and at the beginning of 2020, I will be doing a DadAgainstCancer podcast alongside this blog. The podcast will focus mostly on how cancer and cancer treatments impact family members.
Alongside the DadAgainstCancer podcast will be a second podcast dealing with veterans. This podcast will be similar to the DadAgainstCancer podcast. But it will focus on family members of veterans who are struggling. The as-yet named second podcast will deal with more than just cancer. Guests on this podcast will focus on what family members of veterans with PTSD, cancer, homelessness, or any other struggle, are doing to help their loved one.
I want to thank everyone for their continued readership and hope these new podcasts will be of use to some people out there. Also, in the future, the podcasts and this blog will have small advertisements. I’m hoping to do the advertising in a way that doesn’t become intrusive. Please bear with me as I implement all the upcoming changes.
PS. One other thing keeping me busy has been working on another book unrelated to cancer. This book is project management related, and I think it is kind of finished. I’ll know for sure after the editors are done tearing it apart.
Song of the Day: Video killed the radio star
Launching a podcast brings this classic Buggles song to mind. It happened to be the first music video played on MTV after the moon man landed. I decided against posting the original video. Instead here is a live performance from 2004:
Bonus Song: Radio Ga Ga
Since we are on the subject of radio. This track from Queen is just timeless. I wish I could have been at Wembley Stadium for Live Aid back in 95. I do remember watching it on TV though (probably on MTV, I can’t remember for sure)! Every wonder where Lady Gaga got her name….
