The “Lighter Side Up” Q & As

with :Donna Marie


I don’t know if you agree, but I think pretty much everyone is interesting on some level. Of course, some people are very interesting and not just to me, but to many people. Typically we can find a fair amount of information on these very interesting people through a variety of sources, especially the internet. Most times that’s enough to satisfy our curiosity. Yet there are times I find myself wanting to know more, wanting to know the kinds of things you might find out in casual conversation while sharing a park bench or a cup of coffee at your favorite café—the stuff friends typically know about each other. What we have in common and how we differ, what makes us laugh or cry, if we like extra cheese on our pizza, the things that create familiarity and intimacy—the things that make us “Us!”

For “Lighter Side Up” interviews, each person is given virtually the same thoughtfully-considered list of questions except for a few guest-specific ones. Most questions are on the lighter side, but as light as they are can still give us a bit more insight into the minds and personalities of each guest as an individual—getting to know them better which, of course, is the point 🙂

So, if you want to spend a little time learning more about my special and interesting guests, just grab your beverage of choice and pull up a chair for a cozy chat with…

  • Peter H. & Paul A. Reynolds – originally scheduled for Sept.,now coming probably Feb./March 2015. These guys are VERY busy so it’ll happen when they can do it 🙂
  • Matthew Winner – Nov./Dec. 2014, in celebration of his 100th podcast!
