In episode 6, we open with John & Amy's take on our smart phones ability to "hear" us & why funny sex may lead to a funny child.  Amy also shares the horrific experience of being caught in the act by one of their children. 

This weeks guest is guitarist & lead vocalist of The Lumineers, Wesley Shultz. Long time friends, John, Amy & Wesley catch up after over a year of not seeing each other & find out what Wesley's been doing in his non-touring home life. They discuss the power of productively & how it is key to psychological health & how cell phones & social media control our lives. Wesley shares his experience of recording the covers record Vignettes & why he thinks breaking down a song to the bare bones can expose the essence of the initial songwriting seed. He also tells us how much joy sharing his music brings him & why the role of empathy is important in song writing.  Last, John & Amy give Wesley a lesson in organizing vinyl. 

 John & Amy share their favorite rock shows & what it meant to both their relationship & their relationship with their kids.  They also give us a little veteran advice on the best & healthiest way to see a show so everyone involved can have a great time.

 This weeks featured music is by Jeremiah Fraites from his record Piano Piano.

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