Check out Steve's amazing art at http://clevengerart.com
Steve Clevenger is a project manager, production manager and approximately 47 other things at a small ad agency. When he occasionally comes up for air, he'd rather be sculpting, drawing or painting. Steve is currently taking himself "back to school" to focus on some fundamentals, hone underdeveloped skills, and hopefully flex some new artistic muscle. Steve is a liberal with a conservative past, an atheist that was once a born-again evangelical, and briefly a Franciscan Seminarian. And he absolutely cannot believe how old he is and yet still isn't really sure what he wants to be when he grows up. Most importantly, of course, he's been great friends with Bob Baty-Barr for well over twenty years.

Well, tonight I put myself on the hot seat! Honestly, this was a combination of a celebration of over 1,000 listens so far - also, I had planned on a recap episode after 10 episodes anyway... AND I screwed up again and didn't have a guest. On this episode of the podcast, I open up a bit about why I am doing the podcast and some other projects I am working on... also, I do a little recap of each episode so far... kinda like a highlight reel.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I have enjoyed it so far.
