WELCOME TO THE SHOW
My name is Steve Owens and I meet a lot of people; sometime in my travels, sometimes in my own home town. Several times (quite by accident), I have stumbled into what I consider to be fascinating stories. So after way too many got away, I decided to start recording them. Some of these conversations will be fascinating ONLY to me. Some will be fascinating to you too. In the end, I guess this podcast is just an excuse for me to get to travel, meet, and talk to more people. So if you are so inclined…
Walk with me, down Fascination Street!
I found out that the headquarters of this company with a really cool product was just down the road in my own home town of San Antonio! So I reached out and was able to get a sit down interview with the Owner and CEO of Dry Ventures Inc.! David Nauman and I sit down and chat about his automated machine (about the size of an ATM) that will completely dry and fix your wet cell phone!
I was lucky enough to get to interview Dee Murthy Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Five Four Club / Menlo Club.
I have been a member for quite some time now and Mr. Murthy was kind enough to call in and chat with me for a bit.
We discuss his origin story and his belief that KARMA has a lot to do with his success.

I promise you wont regret it.

This episode is with Adam Carolla “Lackeys”: Caelan Beihn, Dylan Wrenn, and Nick Davis. I had a lot of fun chatting with these dudes who generously sat down with me at Carolla Studios after they got off work. These are some pretty funny guys and they made me feel right at home. Follow them on social media and give their podcasts a listen. At the time of this recording; Nick Davis was A Carolla Lackey. He has since moved on and is currently working at Funny Or die.

My buddy Clint pulled some strings and was able to get me a sit down interview with his dad Rance Howard in July of 2017. With more than 100 film appearances and more than 200 episodes of television; Rance worked in the business from 1956 until he passed in late 2017. This is his last long form interview.
One of the kindest, most engaging men I have ever met.
Stay tuned for bonus extras after the episode.
Shortly after this interview, Mr. Howard made two more movies, and then became ill.
He never recovered.
This was one of the best days of my life.
Although Rance Howard will be sorely missed by many; I am POSITIVE that Heaven is a better place with him in it.
Rest easy, and Farewell Good Sir.
This is part 2 of my interview with The Motorator Matt D’Andria.

We talk about how Matt got to California, how he became an internet creative, and how he got hooked up with Adam Carolla. We also learn that there is a trick to stuffing Adam’s giant ass into Newman’s tiny racecars.
**we get the auction story of the Newman Porsche**
