Episode 140 – Brad Montgomery – Happiness

Brad Montgomery (@BradMontgomery on twitter) chats about happiness with host Craig Price. Happiness can be the Holy Grail for many people, elusive, just out of reach or more commonly, something that happens intermittently for short periods of time. But what if you had control over your happiness? That’s what Brad proposes to a skeptical Craig. The two talk about the flaws in The Secret (or outright lies if you ask Craig) how you can take unhappy conditions and fine tune them so you can be happier, how to gradually get incrementally happier versus trying to drastically change overnight as well as discover that they are just two short balding guys talking about the same things from different perspectives. The more things seem different the more they are closer to the same. It seems super positive and negative people can get along! Everybody sing Kumbaya!

Episode 139 – David Graham – Craft Beers

David Graham with the Karbach Brewing Co (@KarbachBrewing on Twitter) talks craft beers with host Craig Price. Craig certainly enjoys a tasty adult beverage from time to time so the opportunity to go to a brewery and talk beer was too good to be true. David and Craig sit inside the climate controlled barrel room inside the Karbach brewery in Houston to talk the recent trend of brewing craft beers, how they are popping up everywhere including at home brewers, the decision of can vs. bottle, competing in a growing competitive market,  how they distribute their beer and how they prep their seasonal beers. It’s fun for the whole family (or at least those over 21).

You can find Karbach Brewing brands in the greater Houston area and around Texas but you can learn more at http://karbachbrewing.com  Stop by their brewery for a tour!

Episode 138 – Patrick Allmond – Online Feedback

Patrick Allmond (@PatrickAllmond on twitter) returns to discuss online feedback with host Craig Price.  We all want feedback but are we prepared for what awaits us online? The avalanche of inane comments and spam sometimes makes us wonder if its all worth it! Or worse…nothing at all. We want our tweets retweeted, our facebook posts liked and our blogs commented on. Getting people’s attention and then getting them to act can be a daunting task. Patrick and Craig discuss how to ask for feedback, write posts that get shared and what to do when you get an internet troll.

Of course we love feed back here at Reality Check so leave a comment, email craig@speakercraigprice.com with questions or guest suggestions and follow us on twitter @realitycheckpod
