Shouts outs and appearances on "Sounding Off"

My friend and former coworker, Josh Sigler, and one of his friends, Brandon Chapman, started a podcast, Sounding Off w/ Chap & Sig, around the same time I started this podcast. (If you're into unfiltered sports talk, I highly recommend checking it out on Facebook, Twitter, SoundCloud and iTunes.) On the May 29, 2016 edition, Episode 19, they were nice enough to use the last 90 seconds of the show to give a quick preview shout out to the Episode 13 of The Rob Burgess Show.
And again, during the last segment of the June 1, 2016 edition, Episode 20.
And again, during the June 8, 2016 edition, Episode 22.

Ep. 11 - Monica Stark

Hello, and welcome to The Rob Burgess Show. I am, of course, your host, Rob Burgess.
On this, our 11th episode, our guest is Monica Stark.
Monica grew up in San Jose, California, attended UC Berkeley and graduated in 2004 with a bachelor’s in English literature. At the time she didn’t think she had what it takes to be a journalist. Even then, journalism was a dying profession, and her parents advised against writing as a career — so she decided to enroll in the teaching credential program at Sacramento State. Big mistake! Monica truly loves what she does and can’t imagine doing anything else. She has been in the business for 12 years. As editor of Valley Community Newspapers in Sacramento, California, she has been editing the Land Park News, East Sacramento News, Pocket News and Arden-Carmichael News for 3-and-a-half years. Each of those papers is published twice a month. She is also the editor of the weekly West Sacramento News-Ledger and California Kids! All of these publications rely on community journalism.

Ep. 10 - Jonathan Fowler [II]

Welcome to the 10th episode of The Rob Burgess Show. I am, of course, your host Rob Burgess.
This episode is historic. We're now in double digits, and we have our first returning guest. You first heard Jonathan Fowler on Episode 2 of the podcast. Jonathan graduated with a BA in history from Indiana University in 2006. He is an unabashed left-wing political junkie. He has lived and worked in South Korea for over 9 years, trying to help the citizens of that great nation, hopefully, "talk pretty one day."

Ep. 9 - Benjamin Fowler

Hello, and welcome to The Rob Burgess Show. I am, of course, your host, Rob Burgess.
On this, our ninth episode, our guest is Benjamin Fowler.
Fowler has been playing the drums since he was 12, and teaching since the age of 17. He graduated from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in 2008, with a bachelor's degree in jazz studies and percussion. At school he studied with Los Angeles studio stalwart Steve Houghton. He has also had lessons with veteran New Orleans drummer John Vidacovich, and studied regularly with Indianapolis jazz and gospel great Charleston “Deno” Sanders.
Over the years, Fowler has played the drums in such bands as Community Currency, The Delicious (Joyful Noise Records), Kentucky Nightmare (Standard Recording), DM Stith (Asthmatic Kitty), and Cardboard. He is currently busy with The Jefferson Street Parade Band and Chainsaw Mondays.
Along with the drum set, Fowler also teaches finger picking, rock and jazz guitar, and piano. At the Jefferson Street Music Studio, Fowler coordinates several teachers: They’re all currently active in Bloomington’s music community, and they teach a variety of instruments including trumpet, saxophone, keyboard, banjo, mandolin, vocals and more. Whatever you’d like to learn, the experts at JSMS can help!
Ben is the founder of The Limestone Beaters. The group began in June 2012, as Bloomington’s only independent student drum line. In the summer 2014, Aaron Comforty joined as co-director, and the group blossomed into a full-on student brass band: They just recorded their first full length album at the end of April!
The Jefferson Street Parade Band can be found on Facebook at www.facebook.com/jeffersonstparadeband.
The official website for Chainsaw Mondays is chainsawmondays.com and their Facebook page can be found at www.facebook.com/chainsawmondays.
The Limestone Beaters can be found on Facebook at www.facebook.com/limestonebeaters.
The Jefferson Street Music Studio can be found by searching the name on Facebook or at www.facebook.com/Jefferson-Street-Music-Studio-1805077073049281. The studio can be reached by phone at 812-340-9247 or 812-269-6171. The street address is 2051 W. Vernal Pike, Bloomington, IN 47404.
I've compiled a playlist of songs from The Limestone Beaters, The Jefferson Street Parade Band and Chainsaw Mondays. It can be found on the show's YouTube page, which can be found at tinyurl.com/therobburgessshowyoutube.
