8: It Was a Long Week

February 24th, 2015

This week I felt all the feels. Joy. Lonliness. Loss. Hunger. Sleepiness. Creative energy. Excitement and disappointment in the WWE Fastlane pay-per-view. Some serious stuff went down this week, and so did some silly stuff. I try to recap it all while I sip tea like a man.

Also, I dip into my hard drives and find some songs I wrote. They’ve just been sitting there for years, unheard, unused, unloved, some for almost a decade. I air one of them out this week. It’s called “Satellites” and I really like it. Maybe you will too. It’s also on SoundCloud if that’s your thing.

Anyway, I hope you had a good week. I’m trying to get back on track with my writing this week, and I’m very happy that Sophia comes home Saturday.

As always, the show’s on iTunes, so go subscribe so you don’t miss a beat. Big stuff coming in the next couple weeks. You won’t want to miss it.

7: Deborah and Harry St. Ours

February 16th, 2015

My parents came to visit me in San Francisco this weekend. I get to keep my mom in town for a few more days, but my dad had to fly back today. He FaceTimed us to let us know he’d made it home safely. That’s where this episode starts.

6: Dog Treat-Stealing Mayonnaise Monster

February 9th, 2015

Sophia’s out of town and I’ve turned into a disgusting monster without her. My parents are coming to visit this week. And the super-secret project isn’t ready yet. Also, I wrote an amazing rap on Snapchat that I attempt to perform a second time for you.

4: Sophia Dengo

January 26th, 2015

This week, I’m joined by my talented girlfriend, Sophia Dengo. In addition to being a Code for America fellow (Tim O’Reilly tweeted about her this morning!), she’s co-host of the KAL Gals Knitcast and makes amazing hand-crafted jewelry. So we talk about those things and also about pro wrestling.

Also, Gavin FM is now in the iTunes Podcast Directory, so it’s super-easy to subscribe. Or, you can search for “Gavin FM” in your favorite podcast app and it should show up there. Otherwise, you can always point it to the RSS feed.

3: The Neighbor We Lost

January 22nd, 2015

This isn’t a typical episode. There was a tragedy in my apartment building this week. A neighbor committed suicide by jumping from his or her apartment balcony. I don’t know who the person was, but I’ve thought a lot about them this week, and I needed to think some of these things through out loud. It’s been a weird week in our building.

This isn’t a funny episode, just me on the microphone for a few minutes to try to work some things out. I promise that I’ll return with something more uplifting for episode four.
