Episode 11 – Michelle Warnky, American Ninja Warrior

This week we are back in the shed, and visited by Michelle Warnky, who you likely have seen on American Ninja Warrior on NBC.  We armed up with some Hot apple cider with Bourbon, and talk about her history of teaching English abroad, how she fell into becoming a ninja, and how she’s opened a gym here in Central Ohio to train the next generation of warriors.  Her visit was a blast, and we were thankful that she took some time out of her busy day to speak with us.

Episode 9 – National Barber Museum and Hall of Fame

Show Sponsor: Wyandotte Winery

Mike Ippoliti is an interesting guy. He and his wife stopped over the shedbar to talk about the National Barber Museum and Hall of Fame, but immediately started to tell us stories of his time in radio and local music production. He then told us how he stumbled into the role of curator of the museum, and some of the challenges along the way.  They are not currently open, as they are in the process of moving, but looking to open the doors to the public again in the new year.  And, Robert shows his softer side, lamenting about a barber from his past.
