A Conversation About Positivity with Meghan Darcy

Right now I think positivity is crucially important given some of the toughest challenges we are facing globally. I interviewed and had a conversation with my great friend, Meghan Darcy, who provided some great advice on how to stay positive with a bunch of other funny stories she and I shared from our college days together. Follow Meghan on Instagram @Grateful_Blooming_Strength.

Morphin’ Into 2020 - A Conversation About Power Rangers with Fernando Cintron

This week I decided to ask one of my co-workers to join me in an episode to talk about Power Rangers, the children's superhero television show that aired in 1993 (and still runs to this day). If you're not familiar with Power Rangers, the show launched when Fernando and I were just toddlers (like many of the viewers of this podcast). But as one of the first shows ever watched, we decided to talk about how Power Rangers has impacted us and where we think the franchise is going including the movies that have been created (including 2017's PG-13 movie) and much else. We hope you enjoy this episode for this week!You can find Fernando on Instagram at @nando_el_father_jajaja. You can find me on Instagram @chris_once and Twitter @TheChrisOnce.

Happy New Year! Will the 2020s be as colorful as the 1980s?

Happy New Years to everyone! I can't believe we are in a new decade and I've been holding off talking about it because I wanted to discuss it on my podcast... that's why I made a second episode for this week. For some strange reason, the 2020 Era reminds me heavily of the 1980s I think because of how colorful that era was but also how transformative it was as well. I share my thoughts and hope you enjoy... along with a new surprise at the beginning! ENJOY!!!!!

My Fav and Least Favorite Films of 2019

Since everyone is in reflection mode, I decided to take a look back at my favorite and least favorite films of 2019. Only one of each though. There's so many to choose and I didn't have 10 favorite/least favorite films to list but thought I'd share with you why these two films made the episode this week. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and Happy 2020! Social Media: Instagram -- @chris_once / Twitter: @TheChrisOnce

Avengers: Endgame - One Year Later! A Conversation with my Cousin Richie

As promised, here is a brand new episode of me and my cousin Richie talking about our experience last year when we went to see Avengers: Endgame at opening night. It truly was an experience like no other and as sad as it is, I don't think we will ever see or have anything like that again. But it's really great being able to talk about it one year later and the impact it has on us for the rest of our lives. ENJOY!
