Interview 1 – Barbara Spoor

So here at Mimosas with Michael, we wanted to do something new and different. We thought it would be neat to include online articles and interviews of people who have fun and exciting ventures going on - and that we could share with our audience. We decided to launch our first interview with Barbara Spoor, who at the age of 25 walked off her job to follow her passion...and started a blog in the process. 1. First off, I’d like to ask what inspired you to start your blog ‘I Quit My Job at 25’ Writing has always been a big passion of mine. The week of my 25th birthday, I was going through a really big shift in how I was thinking about the life I was living. It's funny, because there was absolutely nothing wrong with my life coming from a logical stand point. I had a great job with a Major Hol...

Name That Song

Our producer/sound engineer Richard Trejo is also a composer and he composed the theme song for our podcast. That sweet sultry and funky song that opens and closes our podcast was done by the genius that is Richard Trejo. So here is an idea I have. Our theme song doesn't have a name....so listen to the two minute jam and send us your ideas of what we should name our theme song!   https://open.spotify.com/episode/4raHSdYEpftiEPImc0ikPm Mimosas with Michael on Spotify

Episode 5 – Matthew R. Fleming

Michael sits and has a mimosa with horror author Matthew R. Fleming, who has self-published his first novel The Dreams. Synopsis: Waking up in an unknown forest with four strangers, James has an unsettling feeling that the group is not alone. As tension mounts and he finds himself questioning the motives and loyalty of his companions, one of the group members disappears, leaving only a pool of blood behind. It soon becomes clear that something very large and unnatural is in the deep secret places of the forest. And it knows they are there . . .

Episode 4 – #ThankfulFor

It's now November and we are quickly moving into the holiday season. The days get shorter, the nights get longer and we drink more hot chocolate and apple cider as winter moves in (unless you are in Los Angeles where we seem to be having a small heat wave). The best thing about Thanksgiving - besides spending it with family and TURKEY - is being able to look back on the year and think about all the things in which you are thankful for. It's time to celebrate the small successes of life! I challenge my listeners to take a moment and list the things they are thankful for in 2017.  Post them here - or message us and let us know. Email us at MimosasWithMichael@gmail.com or tweet us @MimosasMichael and use the hashthag #ThankfulFor Happy Holidays and all the best for the rest of 2017.   http...

This fascination drove me to the film ‘An American Werewolf in London’ At the wide-eyed age of 8, I stared at that hairy, magnificent, werewolf in wonderment. From that moment I was hooked to movies. While embarking upon my journey to watch as many movies as I could I realized a couple of things along the way: Sound is major, but only as much as music.  Sound has been a big part of my life, since I was a kid. Whether it be watching Spielbe...
