From Jeff's website: I was raised in a dying one-industry town smack in the middle of Flyover Country. I came up a Chicago Cubs fan, subsisting on a diet of Hostess fruit pies and Pepsi in glass bottles. I checked out every book in our public library about anywhere other than there. For college, I fled as a refugee to New Orleans where I did a lot of growing up. Luck shone a steadying light my junior year in Scotland, where I learned to drink stout and met my wife. Three children arrived in five years but I proved myself unable to stick to a job. I caromed from stockbroker to bomber navigator to attorney to international consultant to law professor, picking up an assortment of degrees from Syracuse, Georgetown and Harvard along the way. I’ve lived in three foreign countries, been to another 70, and still feel I haven’t seen much. All this in no way—or maybe in every way—qualifies me to write books. I’m writing a trilogy set around the First World War and I’m percolating another seven or eight novels and a dozen short stories, so I don’t fear boredom. I live in Virginia with my wife where I do a little teaching and law on the side. https://jeffreykwalker.com/ --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/tidewater-podcast/support
Jason and Brandi McNeely, active duty military, owners of Heroic Apparel in Toano VA  Heroic Apparel was born out of a desire to create something that would honor America’s heroes, big and small. I’ve always been a t-shirt kind of guy. To me, a great shirt is like your favorite blanket. It just FEELS good.  So I decided to marry up my love of the perfect shirt with my desire to create a brand that would unite people from all different backgrounds and all walks of life. In many ways, each of us is a hero to someone and Heroic Apparel strives to bring that to life.  This is just the beginning for us.  Our first launch tells the story of our love for America, our military and first responders, and our family.  But as we grow, we will start to incorporate shirts and apparel that honors ALL heroes.  We aren’t here to talk politics or to push an agenda, we just want to make great apparel that represents and honors all Americans. Inside each of us lies a hero. Whether you serve in the military, serve your community, or serve your family, we see you and we appreciate you. ABOUT US "I’m Jason and I guess you could say I am the brains behind the operation, but don’t tell my wife that!  I joined the US Navy in 2007 and continue to serve on active duty today.  My wife, Brandi, maintains a full time career while also helping me build this brand and run day to day operations of the business.  Our daughter, Kherington, helps us by fetching shipping labels and packing slips.  Occasionally, she provides artwork for the packing slips, so don’t be surprised if you are the lucky winner of a Kherington original!"  https://www.heroicapparelusa.com/ --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/tidewater-podcast/support

Our mission is simple: To create exceptional meads and unique experiences so that our guests can savor what is good together. https://www.silverhandmeadery.com/ Mangata Coffee and Tea... We love to make coffee for the community that loves to drink it. We will be opening our physical location in early 2021. Keep in touch with us here for updates while we get ready to open.

Listen for a special discount! From underthestarsfarm.com Under the Stars Farm was born out of the desire to bridge a gap, find a solution and create an experience for others. I had been traveling 180k miles a year for my corporate job. My relationships at home were okay, but strained. I was ready to start a new career and instead God called me to focus on my family. After spending 18 months planning my retirement from a 22 year career in Corporate America, we transplanted to Virginia because a surgeon made a life altering mistake that took the use of my husband’s right dominant hand. My husband and I flew around the United States in search of a doctor who could repair the damage. After 12 months, 4 surgeries and a move cross country, my prayers changed. Instead of strictly praying for Billy’s hand to heal, I prayed for peace in our situation and circumstances. As my prayers changed, God bridged the gap between our circumstance and my childhood dream. OUR MISSION My parents taught me at a young age to use my God given talents and to bless others in ways only I could. Our mission here at Under the Stars Farm is to utilize the blessing of this farm and the surrounding land by providing a place were we can help others create moments & memories that last a lifetime. As a little girl, I wanted nothing more than to live on a farm surrounded by animals, and the people I love. I dreamed of a home where our land could support our family, and serve the community. The unforeseen changes in our family led us to a Gloucester, Virginia. This farmhouse built 1842 is where we now call home. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/tidewater-podcast/support

Liz Lyon has an MS in psychology, is a qualified child mental health provider, and has a BS in exercise physiology with concentration in community health. She's the early intervention director of the Rural Infant Services Program (RISP). The Rural Infant Services Program (RISP) provides support for children from birth to three years of age who may have developmental delays. Much of a child's future takes shape in the first years of life. This is a unique "window of opportunity" and is a time of discovery and a time to learn the basic skills that will last a lifetime. But not all children grow and learn at the same pace. Some children need extra help to learn new skills or other ways to master basic skills. Liz shares her passion! Early intervention services for infants and toddlers have proven to be a very worthy investment in the future, with considerable long-term benefits. Longitudinal studies of early intervention programs have documented the long lasting effects and cost benefits of early intervention, which stretch from preschool to adulthood. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/tidewater-podcast/support
