Tyler Posey and Mike Henneberger

huge shout out to Chorus.fm for the continued support of Rock Bottom at the Renaissance.

Check out the chat Tyler Posey and I had with Adam Grundy. We dive real deep into the process of working together on recording and producing the audiobook version and even open up about some difficulties of working together from separate coasts.

Thanks, Chorus.fm and Adam!

Just Dropped Today!! I'm a big fan of this podcast/gameshow and i got to be a guest judge on it!! Links to apple and spotify in the comments below.

Go. Follow. Dueling Decadess AND join their Dueling Decades! 80s & 90s group if you're a pop culture nerd like me.

This podcast gameshow was one of the most fun podcasts I’ve done over the last year. Honored to be a guest judge, joining past guest judge alum like Tom Higgenson from Plain White Ts, Jamie Kennedy, and some other very cool people from movies and shows I grew up on.

Not only will you learn some pop culture stuff you probably don’t know, but these brilliant folks behind the show also managed to work in some conversation about Rock Bottom at the Renaissance, and I’m pretty sure this is the deepest dive I’ve done into the music licensing side of things thanks to fun facts about Atlantic Records randomly coming up. I also get triggered talking about an ol’ hometown ska rivalry. Fun times for sure. Tune in tomorrow!!

Thanks to Stephanie Maksimowfor introducing me to these folks and helping make this happen, and thanks to Marc, Nick and Drew for having me on.

**SOUND ON**
A little tribute to the brilliant Lisa Loeb from Rock Bottom at the Renaissance, read by Tyler Posey. Fun Fact: Me, Tyler, and Lisa all worked on the show Workaholics.
This iconic song was released 27 years ago today. I would’ve been 11 years old, yet this song is so ageless in itself that it didn’t matter what age you were, you felt it.
Thanks to Lisa and her team for letting me include it in this chapter. I do laugh a bit when this moment happens in the book, because it feels a little silly to me, since this book is about where my brain was 7-10 years ago, but I’m truly honored that I was allowed to include it, and so many people have told me how much the music puts them in the story when they’re listening. And that’s exactly what I was going for.
Thanks to everyone who has supported this project. You can find links to order at the link in the comments. And remember, 50% of royalties benefit mental health charities and artist and crew relief funds.
