Ok, Boomer: A Conversation With My Son Mason
by Uli Gulje on December 6, 2019 at 1:00 pm
It's harder and harder for us to relate as we age to those who are younger and younger.....and being a parent makes that trouble double. Today my oldest son Mason was eager to slip the headphones on and give me some 16yr. old perspective on his life online. Tune in for an entertaining hour with the kid who made me a dad. Cheers! &nbs
De Nada, Sydadre! A Conversation With Corey and Sidney Johnson
by Uli Gulje on November 30, 2019 at 12:20 am
This musical duo has more than great chops together, they exude a soul and chemistry that really pronounces their connection. And that shouldn't be a surprise....Corey Johnson teamed up with his daughter to create Sydadre, a high energy musical force that allows him to not only spend quality time as a family, but really showcases their particular brand of quality musicianship. Sydney's vocals pair beautifully with her father's journeyman work on the guitar and microphone to create some truly beautiful music. Take some time to hear how Sydadre came to be; enjoy an hour of conversation with my friends Sydney and Corey Johnson!
Rack It Up To Quality....A Conversation With Luke Kuschmeader
by Uli Gulje on November 22, 2019 at 1:00 pm
Chances are if you've ever rode a bike, hauled a bike or crashed a bike you've heard of Küat bike racks; from an idea and a pole barn to being in 15 international markets and being a part of the 2011 Men's Journal "Gear Of The Year", this company has been helmed by Luke Kuschmeader, a man of vision and ideas and an apparent aversion to the spotlight. Despite being one of the 2018 "40 Under 40" as designated in the Springfield Business Journal, Luke is a quiet, humble and remarkably kind person, and his company reflects his values. He's a serial entrepreneur who was willing to sit down for an hour over some kombucha and coffee and give me a glimpse into the history of Küat Innovations and narrate it's growth path. He's funny, he's sharp and I'm luck to call him a friend. Enjoy an hour of his mindset! Website: Küat Facebook: Küat Racks

"Live your life and have fun"......these are the sage words of Andy Pearsall, owner/operator of Show-Me Brewing here in Springfield Mo.

Things Are Just (im)Peachy With Butler
by Uli Gulje on November 8, 2019 at 8:38 pm
How do you avoid all of the madness that is our current national political scene? You really don't, but beyond the all of the talking heads, "hot takes" and bullet points, the scenario warrants serious thought....how did we get here? What are the options? How is Trump leading the country while smashing through the delicate political relationships that are our international currency? Jeff Butler makes another appearance to guide a hothead like me through how we got here, what might happen and his perspective on it all. Enjoy an hour over some 4 By 4 growlers as we hash through it all!&nbs
Spooky Show 2019
by Uli Gulje on October 31, 2019 at 11:56 pm
Last year at Halloween, my good friend Cheri Allen gave us her take as "The Queen Of Halloween". One year later, our lives are somewhat different, but our friendship remains the same: rooted in gin, conversation and random tangents. Enjoy an hour with Cheri and my sidekick AJ as we delve into the spooky season with her original takes on all things. Cheers!
In Which Kristi Meredith Sings Her Own Song
by Uli Gulje on October 25, 2019 at 12:00 pm
She's the sultry singer of several local bands, haunting in her talent and captivating to take in, but make no mistake: Kristi Meredith is not someone who will be content to be crooning in the background. She's a fierce voice for the under-represented and isn't taking any shit from those who would abuse their positions of power. But here's the best part.....she's a truly empathetic soul with the spirit of a fighter, and I consider myself lucky to count her as a friend. So tune into an hour of us waxing idiotic about modern day politics and what it means to be outspoken in your beliefs. Cheers!
Close Calls: A Conversation With Taffy Biggs
by Uli Gulje on October 18, 2019 at 10:37 pm
The dating life out there is precarious for anyone, but once in a while we find ourselves even DEEPER in and engaged to someone who turns out to be NOT the right person for you in any way. So how do you find yourself on the other side of it, what are the red flags we choose to ignore and how can we set those kinds of boundaries we all need? I sit down with my friend "Taffy Biggs" to mine out our eerily similar stories, and in the process enjoy gin & tonics and several awkward moments along the way. Enjoy!
Balance, Balance, Balance: A Conversation With Alexis Guccione
by Uli Gulje on October 11, 2019 at 12:00 pm
I affectionately refer to her as "Big Al", and while she can curse like a sailor when it suits the conversation, Alexis Guccione is one of the kindest and most gentle souls I've encountered. After battling addiction, she found her calling in a healing capacity, becoming a massage therapist and yoga instructor along the way. We share a very honest conversation about meth use, honest healing and her beautiful voyage along the way. Tune in for a fun hour with an awesome friend!
Larnelle's Fantastic Journey
by Uli Gulje on October 4, 2019 at 12:00 pm
He's a complicated man who thrives on simplicity and brings such a wide and wild story to the Uli Who Podcast that it's gonna take more than one chapter. Larnelle Quinton Evan Foster grew up getting his haircut alongside Michael Jordan, only to land in New York and Los Angeles having designed handbags and representing writers as an agent. He's now ALSO calling Springfield home, where he runs Q Enoteca up on Commercial Street, where wine and good times are had by all. Please enjoy an hour with my good friend as we dive into his incredible story!
