Jessica Simmons is interviewed by Byron Carrier at KSKQ radio in Ashland, Oregon. She remembers her military family lifestyle growing up in North Carolina and how she has grown to fulfill a priestess role, creating ceremonies of drumming, chanting, and meaningful moments.
The Reverend Michael Dowd, pro-future evangelist, and I talk shop and religious philosophy for almost an hour. Michael Dowd, author of "Thank God for Evolution," has a refreshingly similar philosophy as I do: Nature is our primary access to ultimate Reality.

We're still benefiting from what he boldly said in the mid 1800's.
I was interviewed by my dear friend, Aletha Nowitzky, on her Saturday morning (10 - 11AM) radio show "Tasty Topics and Tantalizing Tunes" on KSKQ in Ashland, Oregon.

Take a listen; it does a good job of exploring fatherhood, especially from my dad and for my three sons: http://www.kskq.org/index.php/145-tasty-topics-and-tantalizing-tunes/2048-tasty-topics-and-tantalizing-tunes-hosted-by-aletha-nowitzky-6-15-2013-an-innerview-with-ashland-dad-brad-carrier-in-honor-of-father-s-day
