This week’s guest is Guy Maddison. Guy is not only the multi-band, multi-instrumentalist bass player for the mighty Mudhoney, he's worked as a registered nurse at Seattle's Harborview Medical center for the past 20 years. At the height of the pandemic, Guy was re-assigned to Covid-19 management duties that ran the gamut from initial patient testing to overall staff safety. Guy takes us through the stress & adversity the hospital had to maneuver through the pandemic & why their work is truly a team effort.  John, Amy & Guy also discuss the difficulties nursing in a pandemic had on his personal life, both with family, & his second love, Rock n Roll.

We open this episode with two stories from the car. First, John hits the wall of frustration in traffic after all but one of his routes home is blocked off by either a broken bridge, a draw bridge or road maintenance. Luckily, Amy is in the car with him to talk him down & show him the light to stressless driving.  Second, John & Amy share their separate experiences in dealing with, witnessing, & committing.... roadkill. 

John & Amy have a friend who's a Monk. Find out why they call him the "rebel monk" & what's its like to have him & 11 fellow monks at the house for a 4-day visit.  Amy shares her view on forgiveness & how the "& both" philosophy can help us find empathy & joy in life. 

 As always, John & Amy remind us that We're Not Alone. 

This weeks featured music is Mudhoney & The Bricklane. Theme song Micheal Lerner.
