The Duo with ambition; business & reality in NW Ohio - Episode 12
Two young men in Toledo, Ohio have ambition to start a business. One already has, and the other is the process. Today on The Sideshow I interview them and delve into the psyche behind nineteen year old landscaping business owner Alan and a young Brother born in South America, Mitch. Living in a small town in the Midwest doesn't always breed complacency. These two are proof of that. We go over pros, cons and more about Ohio. Where they want to go next. And some down-to-earth banter! This is the start of Season 2! Thanks for tuning in.

A Seattle Interview: Swamp Life Terry - 7/4/19
What's up y'all it's Giovanni, Today I present to you all a interview I did on the night of Independence Day with a riveting and wise man by the name of 'Swamp Life Terry'. Crazy thing is, I was hella bored and was waiting in line at Dick's(burger spot in Seattle area) and decided to just make any kind of clip to kill time while hanging out with my friend Vinny. Then this guy behind me says "high-key" you should interview me. Turns out he's a musician, 'real' hip-hop enthusiast, philosopher and self-made man with his own record label and company in the city. Sit back and chill as you listen to SwampLifeTerry talk about the city, his take on what an influencer is, life, and Dragon Ball. To say the least!

Consensus from the streets: Weekends in Seattle - Episode 9 - 6/28/19
'Sup y'all, So in this installment of the SSS I start downtown on 2nd Ave & Cherry in Seattle then make my way to The Hill at Cal Anderson. The topic of the episode is weekend activities, plans and lifestyle. What is "normal"? What is "cool"? And what do people in the city do on the weekends? Some are much more honest than you'd think! In fact most are. From chillin' with their cat(s), to horse wrangling we get a wide array of endeavors people claim to take place in; on the weekends. Join me and listen in on what these Cascadian denizens have to say. Peace and thanks, Gio.

In this episode I take to one of the busiest (if not) shopping centers in Washington. Westlake Center in Downtown Seattle; and ask various people what they they the meaning and definition of social skills even is. A random guy outside a fireworks shop share his woes and knowledge on social anxiety.

And I interview the only friendly woman in all of Nordstrom & Nordstrom rack! Spoilers: Security and staff and Nordstrom as well as their shoppers aren't the most hospitable. But despite that I keep it goin' for you guys! Cheers, Gio.

"Why doesn't anyone initiate social contact with me?" - Pessimism and the social world in our society.
So our young buck is down about the fact people don't walk up and talk to him. All his life it hasn't happened and has struggled socially. And to make matters worse he is moving for college soon and visited; yet the same thing happened even in a new town. What can possibly be wrong? Well, I help him deduce that. The best I can. I'm no expert!
