Episode 149 - Susan Hubbard. Dan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund are honored to have as our guest, Susan Hubbard. Susan, a self-described life-long band nerd and strong advocate for proper grammar began her musical adventures at age 9 at a piano keyboard. While her heart told her to pursue music as a career, she decided that the world needed at least one more scientist; Susan then headed to North Carolina State University, where she spent most of her time in the music department. After graduation, she spent almost a whole year setting accidental fires in a chemistry lab and decided to seek her fortune as an attorney. After graduating with a law degree from Texas A&M University School of Law, she started her practice in Tennessee. In 2013, Susan founded a music blog, and in 2015 founded another (because one just wasn’t enough) to scratch her creative itches. In keeping with the question “What don’t you do?” which she hears on a regular basis, Susan closed her law practice in 2017 to pursue a new career in public relations in Nashville.

Episode 148 - Mark Erelli Dan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund are honored to have as our guest, Mark Erelli. “All the things that brought me comfort, they just seem tired and worn, what always used to work ain’t working anymore,” sings award-winning, Massachusetts-based singer/songwriter Mark Erelli, a few songs in to his forthcoming release Blindsided. It’s a realization that has washed over many of us, like headlights sweeping across the bedroom ceiling on a sleepless night. But for a songwriter, such an appraisal is a call to action. When choosing tracks for his new release, Erelli gravitated towards those that wrestled with the questions we encounter in the “middle,” the certain point in life when you reflect on your hopes and dreams and what you thought were certainties. The aptly-titled Blindsided was forged in this process of reckoning, of taking stock of the soul, and being pleasantly surprised. Mining the same gritty yet soulful territory as John Hiatt’s Bring The Family or Bonnie Raitt’s Nick Of Time, Erelli contemplates the delicate tension between love and commitment, faith and family, disillusion-ment and hope. But this isn’t a confession from the therapist’s couch; it’s rock ’n roll, and Erelli is clearly taking his cues from heroes like Petty and Prine. Over the course of Blindsided’s 11 tracks, the message of each song is distilled to its purest form, as fearlessly honest in perspective as it is straightforward in its delivery. Erelli has forged a colorful career by making the art of “being everywhere all the time” seem ef-fortless. It’s hard to think of another artist who seems equally at home serving as a sideman for GRAMMY-winning artists like Paula Cole, Marc Cohn, and Josh Ritter, or producing albums for Lori McKenna, as he does writing and producing his own material, like last year’s “By Degrees,” on which he was joined by a host of voices including Rosanne Cash and Sheryl Crow. That song was nominated for “Song Of The Year” at the 2019 Americana Music Awards, and served to re-introduce Erelli to a wider audience. And just in time, because Blindsided combines the exuber-ance of Erelli’s signature sound with the wisdom that comes with over 20 years of songwriting, capturing an artist at a point in his career where he is clearly digging deep and swinging for the fences. “In one of my favorite Tom Petty songs, he sings ‘it took a world of trouble, took a world of tears, it took a long time to get back here,’” Erelli says. “I think I know exactly how he felt.” Website: https://www.markerelli.com The Curiosity Hour Podcast is hosted and produced by Dan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund.

Thanks for being a listener to The Curiosity Hour Podcast. The world is facing a major public health crisis with the SARS-CoV2/COVID-19 pandemic. We believe this is a serious situation and we encourage our listeners to join us in helping to protect the vulnerable among us and protect our healthcare workers and those on the front lines of this pandemic response. First, please regularly wash your hands and spend about 20 or so seconds washing. Focus especially on your fingertips. Next, try to avoid touching your face as much as possible as this virus can infect people through the mouth, nose, and eyes. Please practice physical social distancing and stay at home. People are the fuel to this virus and if we can stay inside, we can help to prevent it spreading so we can protect those most vulnerable to this virus, including the elderly and immunocompromised. Practicing physical social distancing is also a way to help out our healthcare professionals who are providing critical care at hospitals and clinics to those dealing with complications from COVID-19. These healthcare workers need our help to prevent the healthcare system from being overwhelmed with cases. Remember to keep in touch with your family and friends via phone, text, and email. Check up on people and keep your connections, even when you can’t physically be in the same space. And finally, be kind. Be kind to others as this is a stressful time for all of us to navigate this challenge and all the future uncertainties. And be kind to yourself. As always, even in the midst of all of this, remember to stay curious! We’re going to do our best to keep putting out new episodes and feel free to check out any of our previous episodes that you haven’t had a chance to listen to yet.

Episode 139 - Kate Cooper. Dan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund are honored to have as our guest, Kate Cooper. Kate Cooper is a member of the duo An Horse where she is on guitar/vocals. The heart of An Horse’s magic is rubbery and elastic. Rows of slinky, hypnotic spirals, widening middle-out. They’ve never spun to more vibrant and dynamic impact than on their third album Modern Air. Loosely from wherever-you’re-seeing-them-play-tonight-by-way-of-Brisbane-to-Montreal-and-New-York, Kate & Damon woke up from a six-year nap to make their best, broadest and most accomplished album, doubling-down on and clarifying their strongest strengths while casually developing and showcasing a career’s-worth of new ones. Before their 6 year break, An Horse were 2 albums into their career and touring non-stop with the likes of Tegan and Sara, Death Cab for Cutie, Silversun Pickups, Nada Surf, Cage the Elephant, and Brand New when a series of distracting life events forced them into a hiatus of sorts. That hiatus led to an extended break from touring and recording that’s finally ending with their 2019 album Modern Air. The songs on their new record manage to be both propulsive and loping, lean mission statements about negotiating modern living easter-egged with intelligence and humour, melodic and percussive ear candy, heart and teeth, hope and anger. They sound like themselves, two-headed and singularly focused, a particularly effective evolutionary step in a long tradition of of guitar-based indie-rock, angular in spaces, jangly in others, sometimes both at the same time. They take a familiar vocabulary and teach it new words, one sugary harmony barbed-wired to unflinching insight at a time. Modern Air is An Horse at their most realized, and it’s right on time. Some naps are worth taking. Check out An Horse's website here: https://anhorse.com Note: Guests create their own bio description for each episode.

Episode 132 - Don Carter. Dan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund are honored to have as our guest, Don Carter. Don Carter is an expert in trauma, healing, and kindness, not only because he studies those facets of the human experience but because of his own life experiences. After leaving a decade-long career in law enforcement, Don dove deep into a healing journey that he calls “reclaiming [his] humanity”. He faced his experiences with PTSD, love, and suicide loss with radical vulnerability. This enabled him to “come alive again” through his engagement with the world as he gained insights about the transformative power of kindness. These insights and his genuine curiosity about what it means to be human and what the future holds for society at large, set the framework for his coaching and speaking businesses. The mission of his company — doncarter.co — is to empower people to shift their own perceptions about their world and to see that it is not as hostile as they may believe. It is Don’s belief that in so doing, people can create more freedom, joy, and happiness for themselves and others. Don Carter offers transformational coaching programs to those seeking to heal and live vibrantly through and after traumatic loss. He also serves mission-driven executives and leaders who seek to unlock the next level of their personal evolution and unleash their greatness into the world.
