Dawn Wells, an actress famous for playing Mary Ann Summers from Gilligan's Island joins us for a 20 min cruise and what a pleasure it was! She is traveling around the U.S. promoting her new book, What Would Mary Ann Do? (which we highly recommend everyone going out a grabbing from a local bookstore). Her perspective on today's culture compared to how she grew up was fascinating and her energy was refreshing. 

More about the book:

As the sweet, polite, and thoughtful Mary Ann Summers from Kansas in the hit series Gilligan’s Island, Dawn Wells created an unforgettable and beloved character that still connects with people fifty years from the show’s debut in 1964. As the “good girl” among the group of castaways on a tiny island, she was often positioned against the glamorous and exotic Ginger Grant, played by Tina Louise, prompting many to ask: Are you a Ginger or a Mary Ann?

Part self-help, part memoir, and part humor—with a little classic TV nostalgia for good measure—What Would Mary Ann Do? contains twelve chapters on everything from how Mary Ann would respond to changes in today’s culture to addressing issues confronting single women and mothers. Anecdotal sidebars also describe fascinating facts and compelling memories from the show, as well as some trivia questions to challenge fans and followers. Illustrated with photographs from Wells’s private collection, this book provides inspiring lessons from TV’s favorite good girl.

Blackrapid's founder Ron Henry faced a hard truth late 2013 when he was diagnosed with Cancer.  This is about his journey through the process from start to finish. He kept it private for almost a year and this is the first time he has gone public. This is Part 2 which explains the whole radiation process.
"This may have been one of the hardest things in my life that I have had to deal with. I want to thank the team of doctors at the UW Hospital in Seattle who worked with us and the loving support of friends and family, I couldn't have done this with out you".

Blackrapid's founder Ron Henry faced a hard truth late 2013 when he was diagnosed with Cancer.  This is about his journey through the process from start to finish. He kept it private for almost a year and this is the first time he has gone public. This is Part 1 which takes us from diagnosis to post surgery.
Notes from Ron:
"In the mirror of the hospital's waiting room.. I see an old lady sitting in a wheel chair, her daughter waits with her. I see the sadness of the caregiving daughter who has taken her mothers sickly energy and begins to look similar in body posture and frumpiness of not caring anymore. Her life was to keep her mother alive. 

It was pretty much silent as they sat together with no conversation except for when the daughter wanted to go to the rest room and leave her for a minute. She told her three times I will be back you'll be ok. Then she left and was back as if she hurried her break not to be gone long. Her mother sat silent when she returned as if she really never knew her daughter left. 

I see myself in the mirror with dated floral furniture and a 20 year old photo of Seattle as if this was to keep my spirits high and my mind off of this why i was there - 

I can smell the dying mother from the far corner of the room where I stood. I was hoping soon she would be wheeled away to see the doctor so I can take a normal breath again. This is not me in the mirror I manifest cool things and great adventures. I have no more holes in my belt to cinch it any tighter. This is a day to be in the sun that shines through the dirty 18th floor window with its grand view of the city. I have my dog that brings me happiness staying with a friend in Bellevue so I can talk about how to beat this thing. I feel this is not me- this is not my story. When i finally wrap my head around this - It will not be the end - it will be a chapter and short chapter at best."

Highly prolific and talented music photographer Henry Diltz stopped by our studio to promote his new book and chat about his fantastical life. He has been said to be the "best photographer you've never heard of." Diltz just stumbled upon this profession by taking photos of all of his friends who just so happened to be Joni Mitchell, David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and others living in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles. You will find yourself shaking your head as he nonchalantly tells you the story of how he got the shot of The Doors' "Morrison Hotel" and James Taylor's "Sweet Baby James" album covers.  Henry watched and documented Woodstock being built from the ground up. He now is a co-founder of The Morrison Hotel Gallery which started in 2001 by record company exec and producer Peter Blachley, music industry professional Richard Horowitz (who joins this podcast) and Diltz. The Gallery represents world renowned photographers, and has now grown to become the place to purchase fine art music photography. Each account would be a disservice to summarize here; listen for yourself to this simply amazing man's stories.
