Who we are and who our listeners are
Our listeners are the chronically curious. "Those who must know”

I'm Tom Howell. I grew up in the small town of Delano, California, famous for Caesar Chaves & UFW, the Voice of America, and Gary's Chili Dogs. I've lived in Bangkok, New York and San Francisco and I now live in Placerville. 

Q The Pug, our mascot, was a sick puppy I picked up at Chatuchak market in Thailand, nursed back to health, and brought to Queens New York. We moved from the East coast to California in 2019. You can watch videos from the cockpit of our van on "Q the Pug is Goin' Yonder" www.goinyonder.com.  

The podcast is our primarily media for anyone interested in learning about the world outside their town, city or circle of friends. No matter where one is in the world there is a world beyond. You can find the podcast here; www.uccpodcast.com.

What is it all about?
While some people will listen to podcasts for something familiar and firmly within their comfort zone; others seek something new and a little ajar. If you believe getting lost is the best adventure, then climb aboard. With our podcast you can get lost in the cultures, hobbies and lifestyles of others; step outside and listen to people talk passionately about the odd and interesting things they care about.

At UnCommonCore Media we believe that sometimes you need your eyes
for the things your ears don’t hear
and your ears for the things
your eyes don’t see.

What's new in Season 4?
In Season 4 we will have less B and more S. I don't like pledge breaks. So, going Foreward no self promotion or advertising. The only things  we will promote are non-profits or causes we deem worthy.  Frankly, as you can see, I am doing this all on my own. If you want to help do it here. 

Are you doing anything else?
In a failed attempt to get a job from the state of California I created www.californiafireprevention.com which is now for sale on Sedo.com if anyone is interested. The concept was to recruit media people to inform their audience and the public about fire prevention. It was to be is a statewide campaign. The Log line was "Why just change why world when you can save it". 

In addition to the podcast there is a video component you can find at www.goinyonder.com which chronicles Q the Pug's trip from New York to California. These videos are on Vimeo and you tube. 
$0 of $10,000 per month
When I reach $10000 total, I'll begin creating video editions and publish them to You Tube under the umbrella of UnCommonCore Media.
