Huge Congrats to Portugal. The Man on Hitting #1 Top 40!

HUGE congrats to my boys in Portugal. The Man for working their ass off for Almost 15 years to get to this point of hitting #1 on Billboard Top 40! I am so proud of them and the work they do. They work harder and care more about what they do than any band I know and it shows. This proves that if you work long enough at something and believe in yourself that others will come around and be fueled by what you do and what you put out there! These successes come from humble beginnings in the woods of Alaska and now to the world, Portugal. The Man is a mainstay in music. Keep it up boys and I will see you when you get home!

Check out my Episodes with Johnny and Zach below or on iTunes to hear where they were at creatively right before this explosion of an album came out and their lives were changed forever. See you soon!

Rachael Madori joins Peer Pleasure for Mental Illness Awareness Week!

One of the heaviest episodes we have done here at Peer Pleasure has been the amazing Rachael Madori when I was down in Los Angeles this past month for Podcast Movement. Rachael opened her life to all of us and shared a story of heartbreaking struggle and triumph over Mental Illness, specifically Bipolar 1 and Borderline Personality Disorder. We have received so much feedback on this episode from all walks of life that we partnered up for Mental Illness Awareness Week and urge all of you if you have not listened to this episode to please do so and tell a friend about her story. You never know who might be struggling in silence with similar issues and struggles internally. This is a priceless gift from Rachael and a glimpse into the depths of a mind trying to find it’s way to normalcy and peace. I love all of you and if any of you are struggling please reach out to myself or Rachael and talk about it. No one needs to struggle alone.
