SS #006: The Apartment Sessions with Clay Christofferson

Clay is a tall storytelling husband, father and all around cool guy I met at the Liquor Store two weeks ago.

1 hr 15 min / Published

Clay drove all the way to Concrete, WA for this special episode. He lives in Iowa, so that's a long drive. Resistance tried to prevent us from recording this debut conversation between two Skagit Valley trivia hosts, but alas, we looked Resistance in it's face and said, "NOT TODAY". I babble about running a lot in this and for that, I'm sorry. I'm not sorry that I run, I'm just sorry I talked about it so much. I could have edited it all out but I'm a few episodes into this podcast and to be honest, I'm really over editing. We swear a little bit, but it's not too bad. Go see Clay for trivia at the Lyman Tavern on Tuesdays or at Farmstrong in Mount Vernon on Wednesdays.

A few clarifications:

- The book I refer to is called "The War of Art" by Steven Pressfield. In my opinion, a must have for any creative person.

- The Matt Mays song I was referring to is called Cocaine Cowgirl, not Cocaine Cowboy.

- Jack Mattingly said he would definitely listen to this episode, despite my prediction that he definitely wouldn't.

- I'm sure Mount Vernon has a great hospital now.

- John Maxwell is a world-class ultra runner who lives behind us in Sedro-Woolley. I love his whole family and can't wait to have them on the podcast.

- Kyle Wilson loaned me all the Chuck Palahniuk books and I hope he agrees to sit down with me and record one day.

- The ads for the Hub are fantastic, thanks to Clay. "Liz does Concrete" might be the new name of my trivia night (Wednesdays all summer at the Hub).

- I talk about Olive's health a little bit. She was diagnosed with Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis in early September 2022. If you know Olive, you know she's a very active kid and it upended our world. We are thankfully on the better side of this now, but the world was pretty dark in the Fall. Thoughts and prayers are always appreciated though, as we aren't out of the woods yet.
