Have you ever heard of the amazing Mr. Mullins? Brian Mullins is a farrier from Canada and
one of the best human beings I know. Generous, smart, hard-working, funny, and inspirational
are just a few of the words that come to mind when thinking of him. He has been a regular in
the Heartland for a long time. In 2019, he asked Cody and me if he could interview us for a
podcast that he was going to start. It is called, Mullin’s Farrier Podcast, (link) and I highly
encourage you to listen to it if you have not done so already. (Brian also was the narrator for
my book, Gregory’s Textbook of Farriery.)
We sit in my office, and he does the interview. Now, Brian has a voice for radio and
broadcasting that you don’t realize when you just know him personally. But if you hear his
voice by itself…. Well, it is something. He produces the podcast interview and tells me about it,
but I don’t get around to listening to it. For over a year I don’t get around to listening to it.
Podcasts just weren’t on my radar. I’m rarely alone in the car, and when I am, the voices in my
head provide enough entertainment.
I see on Facebook that he has interviewed Robbie Miller. Robbie is a great friend, and I think I
should listen to that one. Well, what a great job Brian is doing here. I was amazed, so I binged
them all. He even did a good job with my interview. I called him to congratulate him on his
podcast and pitch the idea of me interviewing him for an episode. It took a while, but he finally
relented, and I got my first taste of being a host. What fun I had.
With his encouragement and the help of his producer, Heather at Twisted Spur Media, (link) my
podcast was born. (Heather was also the producer for my audiobook textbook with Brian.) I
don’t have Brian’s voice, but I do have access to some amazing people. My life has been a
journey of learning and following my eclectic interests. From flying, to shoeing, to playing
guitar to writing, I would like to bring you along as I get to speak with some of the most
amazing people out there. You will enjoy seeing that everyone has a story and learning from
the stories of those that are willing to sit across the mic from me.
