#4: The Story of QTalk America

I continue my podcast story from 2008/2009 to about 2013 in this episode, and discuss how QTalk America, the LGBT talk radio network, got its start.

While QTalk America ultimately didn't turn into the smash-hit success that I had hoped it would, it positively affected many people's lives, and is still in operation today under different management. You can check out the current QTalk America and their single podcast, The Show with Clayton McKee. The "archives" of the shows prior to 2014 are available at a special website.

Take a look at these photos from the first few years of QTalk America and our studios, people, events, and some of our ads. (Facebook public photo album.)

#3: The Hardest Thing I’ve Ever Done

Going from a thriving business to "dead stop" in a matter of months because of the "Great Recession" was not an experience I ever want to repeat, especially the resulting life upheaval that I, and many others, ultimately went through. Thankfully there was a light at the end of the tunnel, and it wasn't an oncoming train. This episode tells the story of trying to get through a financial and personal "disaster", sacrifice, changing career course once again, and starting anew.

#2: Three Duck… What?

The "pre-story" begins in early 2006, when my employer decided to call it quits with their business. I briefly get you up-to-speed with bit bit of back story so that the remainder of the story will make sense, and then I dive right in to the story. I'll spend a total of four episodes on the "story behind the story" so that when everything really begins in 2014 on episode 6, everything will make sense.

If you're in the Salt Lake City area, definitely check out Kimi's Chop and Oyster House, Kimi Eklund's (my previous client) current restaurant. And, check out kimistyle.com for some of the work that I had done. (Who can resist a great cooking / recipe video?!)

#1: Introduction - Who The Heck Is Joe?

So I decided to "reboot" the show, because...life. This introductory episode really needs no introduction, so just take a listen!

The Joe's Thoughts Podcast will tell my personal journey of big changes in my personal and professional life, and moving from one career to the next...with all the exciting bumps along the way.
