Episode 14 - Music, Roller Derby & Life w/ Amy “Fun Fetti” Litviak

December 18, 2019

This episode Dion (@Dionsmusica) talks with music aficionado, roller derby girl, and mom Amy "Fun Fetti" Litviak (@kupkake_Amy)  In addition to staying active as a "band mom," working full-time, and helping take care of her family, Amy is a member of the Vindicated Vixens Roller Derby Team.  

Dion and Amy met years ago while enjoying bands in the local Chicago rock music scene, so that's where the conversation begins.  From there, Dion aims to learn more about roller derby.  Finally Dion and Amy talk being parents of teenagers, and what it's like being so busy and maintaining a happy and fruitful relationship.    

Also, there was so much talk about music, we went ahead and asked Amy to create a playlist of some of her favorite songs.  Go on over to Spotify for the OTBP Episode 14 Funfetti Playlist

Episode 13 - Basking In The Heartland w/ Heather Calvert

Episode 13 - Basking In The Heartland w/ Heather Calvert

December 11, 2019

This episode Dion (@Dionsmusica) talks with Off The Beaten Podcast Graphic Artist Heather Calvert (@HCAL23). Dion and Heather got together recently for the 1st Annual OTBP Podcast Retreat, in the fun and fabulous Quad Cities. 

When Dion needed a logo for his soon to be released podcast, and was stressing over the price for a good logo, Heather offered to create it for free.  Since then, she has supplied all graphic design needs for OTBP, and has asked for nothing in return.  After 4 days of brainstorming, and doing a lot of behind the scenes work, we thought it was a great time to finally get Heather behind the microphone so that you all could get to know the face behind the artwork.
