My Podcast is meant to be a fusion of my favorite past-times; Free-Writing and Podcasts. A one man rant-a-thon filled with tangents to see just how far the rabbit-holes can go. Un-edited, off the cuff.

In this episode my boy Abismael Gonzalez joins us. Abi is a Veteran of the United States Army, an active Senior Instructor in the Army National Guard, and a Port Authority Police Officer. He enlisted about a month before 9/11, the events of which would irreversibly shape our world. We take a deep dive into his experiences being deployed to Afghanistan for 12 months, followed by being deployed to Iraq for another 15 months. If you’ve ever wondered what War is really like … take a listen and join me in thanking Abi for his service.   The Spun Today Podcast is a Podcast that is anchored in Writing & Random Rants, but unlimited in scope.
