HOMETOWN:   Wolf Lake, IL (Population 300... counting dogs & cats)

CAREER HISTORY:   When I was in high school, my friend’s dad owned a radio station. I begged him for a job and thinking it would be awkward to reject his son’s friend, he hired me.  Since then I’ve worked in Dayton, Tulsa, St. Louis, Sacramento, Kansas City, and now Indianapolis.

FAVORITE LIVE MUSIC VENUE:   Any small intimate venue where I can sit and be sung to, like a coffee shop.  Here in town I love the Circle Theatre and Symphony on the Prairie in the summertime!

FAVORITE CONCERT I’VE EVER BEEN TO:   Garth Brooks, The Eagles, or Fleetwood Mac. Tough to decide between those 3.  

MOVIES:   Groundhog Day is my favorite movie of all time. I also never met a documentary I didn’t like. I recently got a great one from the library about asparagus farming. If you check it out (you know you want to), let me know what you think!

TELEVISION:   Curb Your Enthusiasm is the funniest show that’s ever been on television. There you have it.  The matter is settled.  Other than that... any "whodunnit" murder show (Dateline, 48 Hours, etc), and PBS Frontline (see previous note about my love of documentaries).

WEBSITES TO VISIT:   You mean aside from I’m semi addicted to Facebook and Twitter. The things people put out there for public consumption greatly amuses me.

LITTLE KNOWN FACT ABOUT ME:  I was named after John Lennon’s son Sean, and I once ran for political office (and lost).

FAVORITE LOCAL RESTAURANTS:  Marrow, Zydeco, Iozzos, Napolese.. I could go on. Seriously. That’s like asking a mother to name her favorite child. 

FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORK:  Getting up in the middle of the night... oh wait, I thought you said “least” favorite thing.

TYPICAL BREAKFAST:   I don't usually eat breakfast (don't judge me).

FAVORITE ROADTRIP FROM INDY:   Chicago. A show at 2nd City + dinner at a fun trendy spot = a great weekend!

LIKE TO COOK?  Yeah... I’m trying to master the art of BBQ on my smoker (low and slow baby... low and slow).

PETS: A golden doodle rescue named Brady.

THREE OF MY EVERYDAY ESSENTIALS:  Coffee, diet pop sweetened with stevia, water with organic lemon juice  (I’m very beverage centric).

THREE THINGS TO DO BEFORE I DIE:  1) Go the airport with no destination in mind and just buy a ticket to a random place on the spot. 2) See the Pacers win an NBA championship. 3) Learn how to change a tire (I seriously don’t know how, so if you see me on the side of 465... please stop and help).

Or at least they make me sad... Nordstrom has a $425 pair of jeans with fake mud on them. Is this for rich people who want to look like they work hard? So silly! Then again... I'm not wealthy, but I also don't work hard... so maybe I should get a pair before the next Florida...
This new purse has GPS capabilities and even has an SOS button. So, say you're in danger, you're attacked...something like that -- you just push this little SOS button and emergency contacts are notified and they can track where you are. That's very cool! Click here to learn...
Even if you haven't used Airbnb, I'm sure you've heard of it. Terry Kirts, my "foodie on duty" from Indianapolis Monthly has a room in his place on the site.. and it's turned out to be more lucrative than he expected. In this week's episode, I catch up with Terry for an insider'...
After sharing this week how my family has recently been touched by suicide ( hear that here ), I've been so moved at other people sharing their story... and have been encouraged by the broader conversation this is allowing us to have. Thank you. Photo Credit: tupungato / iStock...
As the weather gets warmer I tend to eat more cold sandwiches... like tuna! But it turns out, not every can is created equal. These rankings are based on sustainability, fishing practices, and traceability... in other words the ability to trace the fish back to the sea... i.e...
Heather Tallman (our resident busy mom who likes to cook from ) joins me each week to chat about life, food, trends, must make recipes, etc. This week we talked about "fake recipes." I'm dubbing this recipe for an "apple donut" as a fake. Click here to get the...
This may be the most personal (or even private) thing I've ever shared on the air, but I think it's worth sharing... because there may be a message in it somewhere... for someone. Picture: Tharakorn / istock / Thinkstock

Our afternoon show host Bernie Eagan was shocked to learn that Americans eat 554 Million Jack in the Box tacos each year . I was shocked to learn that Bernie had never had one. That had to change.. Visit the 3 remaining Indy area Jack in the Box locations: 31 & County Line...
