This week I cover a lot of ground: Was Bob Saget murdered? Is Free Speech dead? What’s up with Canada, and why do Democrats hate school choice? I conclude with some tips on how to get more GRIT in your life!
The Carla Gericke Show
Ep. 7: The Carla Gericke Show Sits Down with Constance Spencer (12/01/21)
This week, I sit down with Constance Spencer of Team Porcupine Real Estate. We talk about her journey to the Free State of NH, PorcFest, Liberty Forum, and more! We talk about how, as a single mom of 4, she turned her life around by making small incremental changes, and is now a very success real estate broker.
Ep. 6: The Carla Gericke Show Sits Down with PorcFest XIX Organizer Dennis Pratt (11/17/21)
Join me for an in-depth chat with Dennis Pratt, a philosopher and gentleman. We talk about his “Coming to NH” story, some of the myriad of projects he is working on, including an upcoming Seacoast bus tour and comedy festival in December at the SHELL, and what you can expect at PorcFest XIX.
Ep. 3 Three F-Words: Pfizer, Fauci, and Fasting (The Carla Gericke Show 10/20/21)
This week, I get into the corporatism we are seeing with regard to Pfizer and the legacy news, whether it rises to the level of fascism yet, and how fasting can make you feel great and when you are working to enhance your health, who cares about medical tyranny?!? (I do!)
TCGS Iterations and Improvements:
- I designed a brief intro on Canva, using photos I designed with Prima, set to some background musak. I like the intro design enough that I will work to improve upon it, but I don’t like the music and will need to figure out something new there going forward.
- A volunteer came to help me improve the quality of my Facebook Livestream. Something went wrong. The audio was totally awful, as one comment asked: “Are you speaking from inside a hurricane???” I’m not sure what went wrong, but here are a few takeaways: a. Still do your own ghetto recording in portrait that everyone complains about because… it’s better than nothing! b. Several of you are watching and rooting me on, so THANK YOU! and c. We are all still learning, things will go wrong, and that’s OK. Next time will be better! Hopefully!
- The same volunteer–thank you, Chris Silk!–mentioned how not great Joe Rogan’s original podcasts were. It is important to remember, we all start somewhere! Onwards and upwards!
- I posted this on Facebook when I shared Ep. 3: “This makes me happy for many reasons, but mostly because everything in this frame looks like the “picture in my head”–including me! When I was young, I was… a… handful. If you think I have a lot of bubbly energy now that I’m approaching 50, imagine tweeny-Carla. Yeah. I don’t recall who it was, but I was definitely shut down often enough as a child with remarks like: “Pipe down! What? Do you think you’re starring in The Carla Gericke Show?” Well, yes, Dream Crusher, f-you, I damn-well *AM*. And YOU, my friend, are playing the starring role in YOUR LIFE! Make it what you want it. It’s literally up to YOU. Many hours went into reclaiming my health and retooling my life to take the leap to finally start this show. Candidly, TCGS is still very much an amateur train-wreck waiting to become something FANTABULOUS, but here is what I do know: You can’t get from here to there if you don’t know where you are going, and once you do, you still need all the baby steps in-between. Big goals are only accomplished by breaking them down into smaller chunks and then doing the work. Whether it is dropping that first or last pound, or going an extra hour on a fast, or deciding surely someone, somewhere wants to hear libertarian lifestyle news from an African-American immigrant refugee seeking political asylum in the Free State of New Hampshire–/surely/–you need to relish all the small wins along the way that lead YOU to YOUR Big Picture. Identify ONE goal that YOU want to accomplish before the end of the year. What is ONE step you can take TODAY to put you on the path to getting there? What are two more you can do this week or before the end of the month? Whether you want to be more present with the people you love, or maybe you want to tackle a home-keep project, whatever it is, find something YOU KNOW you will be happier for having accomplished, and then… DO IT! It really is as simple as one step at a time… After all, my book The Ecstatic Pessimist was written one word at a time! Feel free to share a goal you are working on in the comments below… And, saying you want to be a future guest on The Carla Gericke Show is 100% totes allowed!”
Ep. 2 Meet the Man Beside the Woman (The Carla Gericke Show 10/13/21)
On Ep 2, I am joined by my favorite human in the whole wide world, my husband, Louis Calitz. He walks us through his nerdy upbringing, explains his favorite quote and how he is contributing to building a better consent-based society in the Free State.
