Fortyish 67 – Scott Lykins is a 40ish Single Dude and Loves It

Former podcaster, beer industry stalwart, and nice fella Scott Lykins ran into Dan on the street awhile back and said he needed to share HIS perspective on being 40 and single – so Dan took him up on the challenge. In this quick conversation, Dan discovers a few new things and Scott ruminates on a life well lived to this point, but isn’t quite so sure about the future.

Stephanie, meanwhile, is out again this week sharing her excellence in digital marketing with the rest of the cool kids.

The Crunch Zone 99 – Let The Anger Flow

This week the guys sat down & let the hate flow. We talked about the frustration with the defensive coordinator, what the possibilities are moving forward, if Bobby is capable of making a better hire, then we talked tv shows, & rapped it up with a little hoops talk. Bye week coming off another disappointing loss had us a little scatterbrained.

Rusty Satellite 226 – Michael Dubree and Angie Fenton

The Rusty Satellite Show, in 225 episodes, has never had a guest with a story quite as compelling as that of Michael Dubree. The Tompkinsville native seemed destined for a life of addiction, always searching for his next high, until he turned his life around. This month he’s on the cover on Men’s Health as the mag’s “Ultimate Guy”, and he’s got the physique to show how he earned the title. He tells me his story in an awesome interview.
It’s also a great show because I get to welcome back Angie Fenton, who first appeared on the Rusty
Satellite in Show #7. Now she’s got a darling daughter and operates Extol Magazine in southern Indiana with her husband Jason.
Angie sits in as guest host as i talk about the week’s biggest stories — the Tom Jurich interview, Dan Johnson’s failed effort to thwart a trial to remove him from Metro Council, and Gov. Matt Bevin’s continued disregard for the facts about marijuana. And Angie and I discuss the idea that, with all the negativity surrounding college sports, we may find other ways to spend our time this winter.
It’s all in an exciting episode of the Rusty Satellite Show.

Fortyish 66 – Phil Kollin Has Wanderlust

At the tender age of almost 40, Phil Kollin has led an interesting life traversing the United States with his wife doing…lots of different things. A few years back, they settled in Louisville and Phil took a great job doing great things for a great organization in a great town. Then, he quit to do something else. It’s just what he does and his story could inspire you to take a leap and go on your next adventure in life!

Rusty Satellite 225 – Jennifer Moore and Jordan Price

Rusty roars into fall with two more of the most interesting people in the ‘Ville. First up is Jennifer Moore, a former Democratic Party chair who now runs Emerge Kentucky, an organization that offers advice to women on running for public office. She’s also a personal injury lawyer, so I ask her the obvious question — why are there so many TV ads and billboards for attorneys?
Jordan Price had a brush with fame as the nation celebrated “Talk Like a Pirate” day. The aspiring actor and elementary school drama teacher starred as a pirate in a string of Long John Silver’s commercials. We talk about his upcoming directorial debut at CenterStage at the Jewish Community Center.
I went to see the Eagles at the Yum! Center Tuesday, and offer up my secret for getting in cheap. I’ve got an opinion on the firings over at U of L, and I’m hoping the Metro Council does the right thing by voting for the new soccer stadium in Butchertown. I’ve also got updates on Dan Johnson and Chris Thieneman, and plenty more on the Rusty Satellite Show. Join me, and tell your friends.

Rusty Satellite 224 – David Toborowsky and Frank Abignale

You probably didn’t know that somebody from Louisville is featured in the Learning Channel reality series, 90 Day Fiance, but it’s true. And it’s an old friend of mine, David Toborowsky, who has spent much of the last three years overseas. He met and proposed to Annie, a young Thai woman and, voila, their story is now part of the show.
Now, David didn’t reveal any spoilers about the rest of the series, but based on the first two episodes, I can recommend it as a highly entertaining program. And you can hear about David’s journey on this episode.
My guest Frank Abignale is the author of one of the most amazing life journeys in human history. Frank is the model of the movie “Catch Me If You Can” which details his ability to pose as a pilot, doctor and lawyer on his way to making a fortune as a con artist. I spoke to him here before he gave a talk on fraud prevention to a sold-out audience at the Kentucky Center for the Arts. His trip was sponsored by the good folks at AARP.
Of course, all the news around here is about what’ going on at U of L — which this week fired its
┬álong-time Hall of Fame basketball coach and very likely gave the boot to it athletics director. We haven’t heard the last from Rick Pitino or Tom Jurich, however. Gov. Matt Bevin’s comments about how Colorado is dealing with legalized marijuana, upon further review, are flat-out lies. This week he unveiled a new plan to solve the state’s pension crisis that doesn’t include new revenue from gambling or marijuana.
For the gorgeous weekend ahead, I recommend a trip to the Mini Maker Faire at Fourth Street Live! and your local golf course. Enjoy the show, and please tell your friends.

Fortyish 65 – The Fear Is Here

As you get older, you just have a lot more to lose – and we’re not talking necessarily about “stuff”. Stephanie and Dan run down their personal list of 5 things that they’re most afraid of at 40ish and they’re lock in step on a few, leading them to believe that they have a lot in common with a lot of you.

Rusty Satellite 223 – Mike Rutherford and Norm Stamper

Rusty welcomes the authors of two fascinating books into the Louisville.am studios this week. First up is Mike Rutherford, creator of the Card Chronicle, half of the Ramsey and Rutherford sports talk show, and the author of 100 Things Louisville Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die. The timing of the book’s release is odd, given it has a foreword from Rick Pitino. But there’s also a chapter entitled “What Did Freedom Hall Smell Like” and other gems that make it a must-read for Card fans.
Norm Stamper visited the city this week to talk about his ideas for fixing America’s police, a concept that hasn’t been universally accepted by local police forces. He did a media tour here and a town hall in the West End, My friend Chris Thieneman brought him here because he was inspired by Stamper’s ideas
In the news, I was sad to see the announcement that there’s an end in sight for the popular Hometown Heroes banner series. And while I was shocked, and pleased, to see Republican Sen. Dan Seum get behind a plan to legalize marijuana to help solve the state’s pension crisis, it was no surprise to hear mini-Trump Gov. Matt Bevin proclaim that two things aren’t going to happen during his term — the legalization of marijuana or the advent of casino gambling.
The big events I’m up for this week are the Garvin Gate Blues Festival and the U of L football game at Noon Saturday. And don’t forget the Aviation Heritage Festival at Bowman Field. Thanks for downloading the show, and please tell your friends to give it a listen. .
