I Made an Appearance on the California Now Podcast Right After Kevin Costner

I had the wonderful opportunity to join the crew at Visit California on the California Now podcast recently, going through some of the best road trips you can find in NorCal. After I was invited on the show, I went to research the podcast and all the different interviews they’ve done. The most recent? Kevin freakin’ Costner. I was also told by the producers of the show that my interview was the second longest segment in the podcast’s history. The first? Kevin freakin’ Costner.

Who else can say they followed Kevin Costner? I’ve watched Tin Cup and Bull Durham no less than 100 times each. The man’s a legend. Here is the description of my interview from Visit California:

On this episode of the California Now Podcast, host Soterios Johnson explores itineraries with several seasoned road trippers. He first talks to Active NorCal founder Zach O’Brien, who says there is endless adventure to be found amid the natural wonders in the North Coast and Shasta Cascade regions. From active volcanos to hidden waterfalls and ghost towns, a road trip across the northern part of the state can be an outdoor enthusiast’s dream vacation.

I probably could have had a more clear, succinct interview, but I tried my best. I’ve been podcasting for less than a year and am still working on being a better speaker. Listen to the podcast above for some amazing road trip ideas in California (you can also download it here).

And if you want to hear more of my voice, trying listening to the Talking NorCal podcast.

  1. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who was conducting a little research on this.
    And he in fact ordered me lunch due to the fact that I found it for him…
    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanx for spending some time to discuss this topic here
    on your internet site.

  2. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this topic to be actually something that I
    think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.

    I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll
    try to get the hang of it!
