Firefighter and Union Leader tells ALL about Detroit’s epidemic and why it’s still burning every day. #21



Mike “Myke” Nevin is a second generation firefighter with 30+ years of service to the city of Detroit. With the crazy amount of fires Detroit experiences daily (three times higher than any other city), many wonder how this epidemic has continued to spread. On Spooky Hourz Podcast #21 host Jordan Garland was fortunate enough to sit down with someone like Mike who knows the INs and OUTs of everything the firefighters, police, and EMS endure in Detroit. From being severely undermanned and underpaid, to lacking the proper equipment and medical treatment for themselves, the world is unaware of the craziness that occurs every day in the city of Detroit. Listen to this podcast for an eye opening conversation that shows just how far the comeback city has actually come, and if it can go further.

Why Video Games are underrated, how they can change your life, and world building. PODCAST #15



There are varying levels to creating and storytelling, but few can be as immersive as diving into a world created for you and taking control of the environment. Video games are still somewhat trying to shed the stigma of being for kids, even though it is one of the highest forms of creation that human beings make, on many forefronts.  We discuss our love for the games that  changed our lives as kids, and then how games have been able to affect and change our lives into adulthood.  You don’t have to care about video games to resonate with this conversation. Thanks for listening— Jordan Garland (host of Spooky Hourz Podcast).
