Episode 11 - Throwing Shade w/ Sarah Chung: Paralympian Judoka

November 20, 2019

This episode Dion (@Dionsmusica) talks to Sarah Chung (@jdognasian).  Sarah is a Paralympian Judoka, having competed in the 2016 Rio Paralympic games, as well as a musician, and recent Adler University graduate. 

Sarah and Dion met this summer while both marching in the Lakeside Pride Marching Band.  Dion said the minute he learned that Sarah was a Paralympian, a fact which she was reticent to divulge, we had to have her on the show.  The conversation covers everything from Sarah's self-proclaimed embarrassing moment with Barack Obama, to the faux pas' that people make in every day life when interacting with the visually impaired. Sarah was extremely open, and the conversation was surprisingly candid and intimate.  Not to be missed.

Episode 10 - Bonus: Reflections on Veterans Day w/ Dion

This episode Dion (@Dionsmusica) spends some time reflecting on his thoughts on Veteran's Day, and takes some time to recount his time in the Illinois Army National Guard and his 2008 deployment to Afghanistan. If you are a veteran, or have veterans in your life, this is one not to be missed.

Episode 9 - Reppin What You Love with Francis Almeda

Episode 9 - Reppin What You Love with Francis Almeda

November 6, 2019

This episode Dion (@Dionsmusica) talks to Francis Almeda (@almedagrill), founder of Reppin Pins. Reppin makes pins that represent what you love, and does it in amazingly stylish fashion! 

After a few weeks of back and forth emails, we were able to finally pin Francis down (get it?) and talk all things pins.  We've been a fan of Reppin for a few years now, so we were super excited to talk about the business, how it started, and what the future may hold for the Chicago based company. Francis and Dion also talk Jiu Jitsu, which is how they met, and additionally, as per usual, Dion digs in for tips on successful relationships from Francis, who is a married man.  Knowledge is Power!
