As is typical with most conversations, topics bounce around and have nothing to do with each other. This is what we try to do with the podcast. Talk without any agenda and with the intention to connect with another human being in a real way.

That’s why I really enjoyed this interview with Dexter Sy. After re-listening to the episode, I was surprised by the number of topics we covered and how far ranging the conversation was. It’s always fun when a guest sits down and decides to have a conversation as opposed to an interview. I didn’t expect this because I knew of Dexter Sy back in the days when he used to write music reviews for Bite Magazine. He was honest. Some would say brutally honest. So after meeting him in person, it was not what I expected, but a good surprise nonetheless.

We started it talking about parenthood, then touched on his music endeavors, then talked about his stint writing music reviews for Bite Magazine (he wrote a review about Rescue a Hero too), then we talked about corporate life, and even a hint of marketing.

Enjoy the episode!
