Growing up I was bit of a shy dude.  I didn't want to get in front of the class to do an oral book report or anything that possibly could embarrass me or make me look like a fool.  I was terrified.  Oddly enough, however, I found that I loved the idea of "communication" and I quickly fell into playing around with electronic bulletin boards (BBS), the precursor to the Internet of today.  I was still shy, but I could hide.

Fast forward to the age I am now and I don't give a crap about hiding any longer.  Sure I do stupid crap that makes me look dumb.  I embarrass myself (and my family) from time to time, but my time isn't getting any longer on this Earth and I just don't care anymore.  If you like me, that's great!  Let's be friends.  If you don't, well -- move along, nothing to see here.

So when podcasting became a thing, I felt I had finally found my vehicle for truth, justice and the American Way....wait...wrong script. (clears throat) So when podcasting came along, I felt I had finally found my vehicle for communicating, teaching and sharing my knowledge, my experiences and most of all - my opinions.  :)

You see, I'm bit of a different bird.  I live in the South, in Georgia to be exact, and this area is known for being conservative and christian - two things which I am not.  So I don't particularly fit in "well" around here, but I'm finding more and more folks don't either.  So I'm not entirely alone, but just enough that I need to reach out to you fine folks for conversation.  

I've produced various podcasts since I started in 2011, but the one I do mainly is Don Talk (formerly The Donovan Radio Show).  I classify it as a variety show, because you'll never know what I'm going to talk about.  It could be politics, it could be technology, it could be religion or it could be how Trump's hair has its own zip code.  My wife joins in from time to time also and if you think I'm a bit odd, you'll love her.  ;)

So, I hope you like the show and I appreciate any little bit you're willing to part with to show your support.  I do have some goals and hopefully we can hit those.  I have some rewards and hopefully they're good enough, for now.  I'll work on better ones.  I promise.

Side note:  I'd love to do this full time, but unfortunately it doesn't pay the bills right now.  I'm an IT Consultant working alongside my youngest son.  As you can see, every cent you support me with gets me closer to my end goal.  :)
