Mike Hitt- Episode 87 Marta On The Move Podcast
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style= "text-decoration: underline; color: #008000;">#87 Mike Hitt</span></p> <p style="text-align: left;">It has been 3 years to the date, people!  Damn!  I am so excited to have some really incredible guests on the show this month and next.  Rico Gagliano from <a href= "http://www.dinnerpartydownload.org/byline/rico-gagliano/" target= "_blank">Dinner Party Download</a> is joining me on July 2nd!  His podcast was the inspiration for starting my own.  Snap!  Luis Von Ahn the creator of the Captcha, and CEO of Duolingo was my last one, and this one welcomes Mike Hitt from MCM Studios.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">Sometimes you meet those people you are just meant to run into at a certain time of your life.  I truly believe that, I believe in timing.  Mike Hitt was a friend I had on Facebook that I had never met in person, but followed along on his adventures.  He created <a href= "http://www.middleclassmillionare.com" target="_blank">Middle Class Millionare</a>, or <a href="https://twitter.com/MCMStudios" target="_blank">MCM studios</a>, that offers recording, editing, and studio time to people of all ages.  If you remember the "I'm So Burgh" shirt, he is behind that too.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">I, however, was not following Mike because of those things, I actually found out about his work later.  I was following him because, frankly, I liked his posts.  They ranged from random questions, to inspiring, and uplifting thoughts that I would think about throughout my day.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">One day earlier this year, I noticed he was posting red numbers, with nothing else in his updates.  They were in succession, and went to 100.  So, for example, he would post Day 34 of 100.  I had no clue what that meant, but I was intrigued, along with other followers online.  Turns out, Mike was making himself accountable for his days.  100 days to be exact to be the best version of yourself, take action, or fulfill something you haven't before.  I was hooked!  I loved the concept, and I started thinking about my days that way as well.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">In that time, Mike's <a href= "https://twitter.com/412mcmstudios" target="_blank">100 days</a> inspired me to try rock climbing for the first time, and to finally get my act together, and see my idea for MOVE X CREATE to come to life and be a successful event that I plan on continuing! (Podcast later to come). It felt amazing, and I knew I had to get him in for a podcast episode to talk about the concept.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">I however, had no clue how much we would mesh in real life.  We had THE best time recording this episode, as I am sure it will shine through.  It was very organic, hilarious, and we hung out long after the microphones had stopped.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">Some subjects we "Hitt" <del>Stop trying to be funny, Marta</del></p> <ul> <li style="text-align: left;">Why connections in your city should be diverse, and strong</li> <li style="text-align: left;">Inspirations for YOUR 100 days</li> <li style="text-align: left;">Resumes, what to say when trying to get a position</li> <li style="text-align: left;">Why you shouldn't pressure couples to get married! Hah!</li> <li style="text-align: left;">How movement fuels your mind, and opens opportunity</li> <li style="text-align: left;">Why you should be the strange person dancing alone at the party</li> <li style="text-align: left;">How to make your connections more creative to gain success</li> <li style="text-align: left;">Why being an 80's baby is THE best for finding yourself as an adult</li> <li style="text-align: left;">Planning for your retirement that isn't just a savings account</li> <li style="text-align: left;">The reason behind why Mike and I have a crisis every day</li> </ul> <p>and much, much more.</p> <p>I hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did!  One of my favorite parts is<a href="https://twitter.com/TheOfficialMCM" target="_blank"> Mike </a>not being able to take the heat in the podcast seat!  Haha. I promise you will get the joke if you tune in :)</p> <p>Until next time!</p> <p>This episode is sponsored by <a href= "http://www.floatlevity.com" target="_blank">Levity Pgh</a>.  Pittsburgh's premier sensory deprivation experience.  All listeners get $5 off with code "Marta"</p> <p>Closing music by <a href= "http://aaron-leeder.squarespace.com" target="_blank">Aaron Leeder</a></p> <p>Follow me on <a href= "http://www.facebook.com/martaonthemove/" target= "_blank">Facebook</a>, <a href= "http://www.twitter.com/icantfindmarta" target= "_blank">Twitter,</a> and <a href= "http://www.instagram.com/martaonthemovepodcast" target= "_blank">Instagram</a>.  Let me know what you wanna hear!  Check out my episode with CEO of <a href= "http://www.duolingo.com" target="_blank">Duolingo </a>and creator of CAPTCHA- <a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/86-luis-von-ahn-ceo-duolingo/" target="_blank">Luis Von Ahn.</a>  Thank you all for following, and believing in me! :)</p> <p>Rumor has it there is a PGH City Paper article coming out next Weds about me, stoked to take a look.</p> <p> </p> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_2664" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 800px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Mike-1.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2664"><img class="wp-image-2664 size-large" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Mike-1-1024x1024.jpg" alt="Mike 1" width="800" height="800" /></a></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd">Mike Hitt- MCM Studios on Marta On The Move Podcast</dd> </dl> </div>

Luis Von Ahn - Episode 86- Marta On The Move
<h4 style="text-align: center;"><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><span style= "color: #008000; text-decoration: underline;">#86 Luis Von Ahn</span></span></h4> <p>I wonder how many of you may know, that the widely popular company known as<a href="https://www.duolingo.com" target= "_blank"> Duolingo, </a>has it's base right here in Pittsburgh, PA?  I sure didn't.  After trying many language courses, Rosetta Stone, and even regular CD's you can listen to on your way to work (never happens), I  found myself drawn to the free app that is Duolingo. I just happened to be browsing online one day, and noticed from their website, that they are Pittsburgh based! What, what?</p> <p>If you listen to my show, you know I love traveling, and merging my cultural experiences with my beloved hometown of Pittsburgh.  Finding out that Duolingo was based here, and that I was addicted to the app, just made my day!  I had to find out who was behind this, and get them on the show.</p> <p>Turns out a gentleman by the name of <a href= "https://twitter.com/luisvonahn?lang=en" target="_blank">Luis Von Ahn </a>created Duolingo.  I reached out, scheduled an interview, and a tour of the office.  Wanting to come prepared for the podcast, I started researching Luis, and found myself blown away by what he has accomplished in his 38 years.  Luis is the inventor of the <a href="http://www.captcha.net" target= "_blank">CAPTCHA</a>.  You all know what that is, the box at the bottom of almost any screen, with fuzzy words, that let's you prove you are not a robot.  Along with that, he created reCAPTCHA, and ESP game, and now Duolingo, among various other notable projects.</p> <p>Luis has been named one of the 50 Best Brains in Science by <a href="http://discovermagazine.com" target= "_blank">Discover</a>, voted in <a href= "http://thesiliconreview.com" target="_blank">Silicon's</a> 50 Most Influential People in Technology, and has been recognized as a Brilliant 10 by <a href="http://www.popsci.com" target= "_blank">Popular Science</a>.  His credits are almost too long to list, and I cannot wait to see what he does next.</p> <p>To be honest, once I started researching Luis, I was extremely nervous to chat with him.  The man is, in fact, a genius, and I suddenly found I wasn't very sure of myself.  It turns out, that I did not have to worry at all, and was pleasantly surprised to find him funny, open, and candid.  I truly enjoyed my time spent chatting with him about the origins of Duolingo, and what sent this kid who grew up in Guatemala down his path to  success.  I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did.</p> <p>Also, a personal note to Luis. I am still available to be a squatter at Duolingo.  I could clean the floors, take out trash, bring coffee, you name it. Ha Ha! (I am only partly kidding.) It is probably the coolest work place I have ever seen in my life.   You can hear more about my tour with them in the intro of the podcast.</p> <p>If you haven't downloaded Duolingo yet, I HIGHLY suggest it.  My husband and I practice it every morning, and we have found our Italian to be so much better.  It has an amazing success rate, and more importantly, in our busy schedules, it is FUN.  I wake up to the owl every morning :)</p> <p>This episode is sponsored by <a href= "http://www.floatpittsburgh.com" target="_blank">Levity Pittsburgh. </a> Pittsburgh's best sensory deprivation chamber with a spa like atmosphere.  All listeners get $5 off with code "Marta"</p> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_2653" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 800px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/P1070072.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2653"><img class="wp-image-2653 size-large" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/P1070072-1024x826.jpg" alt="Luis Von Ahn" width="800" height="645" /></a></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd">Luis Von Ahn</dd> </dl> </div> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_2654" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 800px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/P1070074.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2654"><img class="wp-image-2654 size-large" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/P1070074-1024x735.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="574" /></a></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd">He humored me in my thought bubble photo wish.

The Spice Of Morocco Marta On The Move Episode 85
<p>I have recently returned from my Moroccan journey, and I am forever changed in my love of spices.  The richness of the country, is in it's spices in my opinion.  I have never seen, tasted, or smelled such pungent, and varied flavors.  I wanted to record when I got home about all that I have seen, tasted, and hopefully share some cooking tips with my listeners from locals on the trip!</p> <p>I love to cook, and made finding some cooking classes while I was there a top priority.  In fact, the first night I arrived after my flight, I contacted a local family to see if I could join them for dinner, and help prepare the meal.  <a href= "https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g298349-d10080342-Reviews-Khadija_a_Kuzina-Essaouira_Marrakech_Tensift_El_Haouz_Region.html" target="_blank">Khadija'a Kuzina </a>was the easiest choice I had to make before I arrived.  They responded instantly, warmly, and accommodated me on short notice.  I met with them, and had a lovely meal of eggplant appetizer, salad, fresh squeeze juice, and lamb tagine with prunes and almonds. (MY FAV!) It was easily the best food I had in Morocco, and I helped make it, furiously scribbling down recipes, and notes as we cooked.   I felt an instant connection to the family, and can't wait to return to visit them again.</p> <p>Another excellent cooking class I attended was with Fatima, who cooks out of the <a href="http://www.villa-maroc.com/en/" target="_blank">Hotel Villa Maroc</a>, and I truly enjoyed that she took us into the depths of the markets in Essaouira.  Even past what I like to call "Slaughter Alley", where all the live meat is butchered.  I will never look at chicken the same way again.  Fatima also explained certain spices that otherwise, we would not know what were used for, and that I wanted them in my own kitchen.  I myself picked up "top of the shop" spice called Ras el Hanout, a blend of over 70 spices that had me questioning whether I was going to clear US customs, because of how strong the aroma.</p> <p>Next I visited a spice shop in the town where the owners invited me in for tea.  We sat, and discussed his family, and how the spice shop immersed from an old record store.  We also discuss some Moroccan traditions, the favorite spices people use, and types of teas the locals drink daily.</p> <p>Essouira is also known for their Argan oil, using it for their skin, but also, surprisingly to me, in their cooking, and this is the only place I would purchase it.  It is a women's CoOp that are gaining their freedom, and being self sufficient by working this Argan facility.  We toured it, and met a ton of the ladies that work so hard every day.  The oil is incredible, and I mention the salad dressing recipe in the podcast. They DO deliver to the United States! So I don't have to go without it again!</p> <p>I am truly honored that these folks let me record with them on my travels, to peer into their lifestyles.  Cooking is a passion of mine, and I believe no matter how different the culture, sharing that love unites everyone.</p> <p>I cooked all the recipes I wrote down when I got home for a group of friends, and I am happy to report, that they turned out just the same as when I was there! You would be proud Khadija and Housine!  The bread, however, was a disaster.  Sometimes you can only have certain experiences while traveling.  Oh well, to the next adventure!</p> <p>Here is the recipe for the prunes that Khadija was describing in the podcast below!  Try them with your next tagine!</p> <p>1 cup prunes</p> <p>1 tablespoon cinnamon</p> <p>pinch of salt</p> <p>1 tablespoon rose water</p> <p>1/2 cup honey</p> <p>1/2 tablespoon tumeric</p> <p>1 cup water</p> <p>Cook down until syrupy and soft (AMAZING)</p> <p>Follow Marta On The Move on <a href= "http://www.twitter.com/icantfindmarta">Twitter,</a><a href= "http://www.instagram.com/martaonthemovepodcast"> Instagram</a>, and <a href="http://www.facebook.com/martaonthemove/" target= "_blank">Facebook!</a></p> <p>Here are the top foods you should try in Morocco!</p> <p>Harira-A Traditional Soup</p> <p>Cous Cous- A grain based main dish in Morocco</p> <p>Pastila- A sweet and savory stuffed pastry, found a lot in street food.  Could be stuffed with Pigeon or chicken.</p> <p>Zalook- Eggplant salad made with tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, parsley, lemon. Served as a salad or appetizer</p> <p>Grilled Sardines- Nuf said.  Get them near the coast. Delish!</p> <p>Macooda- Fried potato balls (Street food)</p> <p>Tagine- My absolute favorite!

Tips For The Nervous Scuba Diver EP 84 MOTM
<p>Diving is one of my favorite activities, but even I get nervous when I am not prepared.  I have put together some of the things that make, at least for me, a solid base for a successful dive.  I am sure others have their routines they go through, and I would love to hear about them.  Please post if you have something you always do, aside from the regular checks that help make your dive a great one.  Follow me at <a href= "https://twitter.com/icantfindmarta">@icantfindmarta</a>, on <a href="https://www.facebook.com/martaonthemove">Facebook</a> or check out my podcasts on the <a href= "http://www.epicastnetwork.com">Epicast TV</a>.</p> <p> </p> <p>NO CAFFEINE-  Usually, you wake up pretty early to go diving, and if you didn't get a good night sleep, you will be tired and cranky. For me, I have to resist that morning espresso.  I had one once before I went diving, not thinking it would effect me, but my nerves were shot, and I was shaky.  My buoyancy was terrible, and I was breathing more rapidly, and shallow under the water. I knew it was because my heart rate was elevated from the espresso I had hours ago.  It kicked in when I needed it LEAST.  A great learning lesson for me, and I suggest you try it if you are prone to get nervous on your dives.  Wait until after you get back to the dock to enjoy that cup of Jo!  Try an herbal tea in the morning instead.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/caffeine.jpg"> <img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-1089" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/caffeine.jpg" alt="Coffee-Crazed Woman" width="506" height="337" /></a></p> <p> </p> <p>MEDITATE-  Everyone, whether they know it or not, practices some sort of meditation.  It could be going to church, having that quiet moment with a cup of tea, or simply closing your eyes for a few minutes.  For me, it is essential to start my day on the day of a dive with a good meditation.  My husband and I practice TM Transcendental Meditation.  Ever since starting the classes, our dives have been much smoother. Phil didn't take to diving as easily, was always very nervous, so it is great to see something have success in his overall state of mind going into a dive.  It made a significant difference.  Ifyou are saying to yourself, it is too early, there is no time, I don't know how to mediate. These are not true. Try it on the boat ride out to the site.  It doesn't have to be a guided meditation, and you do not have to take a class to do it.  Just sit quietly for a few minutes, and try to clear your mind.  Breathe evenly in long breathes, and focus on something, a tree perhaps.  Try it before your next dive, and I bet you will see a difference.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/meditation_a_way_of_life__by_spidermancrd-d49vs3l.jpg"> <img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-1091" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/meditation_a_way_of_life__by_spidermancrd-d49vs3l.jpg" alt="meditation_a_way_of_life__by_spidermancrd-d49vs3l" width="900" height="600" /></a></p> <p> </p> <p>DON'T RUSH-  On dive boats, everything is calm until the exact moment where it is time to get in the water.  It always seems like a scramble, or race at the very end.  Do not play into this race.  Prepare your <a id="_GPLITA_6" style= "border: none !important; display: inline-block !important; text-indent: 0px !important; float: none !important; font-weight: bold !important; height: auto !important; margin: 0px !important; min-height: 0px !important; min-width: 0px !important; padding: 0px !important; text-transform: uppercase !important; text-decoration: underline !important; vertical-align: baseline !important; width: auto !important; background: transparent !important;" title="Click to Continue > by FineDealSoft" href="#" name= "_GPLITA_6">ITEMS<img style= "border: none !important; display: inline-block !important; text-indent: 0px !important; float: none !important; font-weight: bold !important; height: 10px !important; margin: 0px 0px 0px 3px !important; min-height: 0px !important; min-width: 0px !important; padding: 0px !important; text-transform: uppercase !important; text-decoration: underline !important; vertical-align: super !important; width: 10px !important; background: transparent !important;" src="http://cdncache-a.akamaihd.net/items/it/img/arrow-10x10.png" alt="" /></a> to be easily within reach of you when you first get on the boat.  That way they are nearby, and when it comes time to get your gear ready, take your time.  There is nothing worse than getting worked up right before you jump into the water.  A good Dive Master will not rush you, but I have had some that have, and it made for a very nervous crew, that some almost weren't able to descend because their heart rate was up, and they couldn't calm down.  Do not be rushed by anyone, if they give you a hard time about it, ignore them.  You would rather take a few extra seconds to make sure all of your gear is in place, then have something happen that will effect your dive in a negative way. Relax, in a few moments you will be calmly floating under the water.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/keep-calm-and-don-t-rush-2.png"> <img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-1092" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/keep-calm-and-don-t-rush-2.png" alt="keep-calm-and-don-t-rush-2" width="600" height= "700" /></a></p> <p> </p> <p>EAT RIGHT AND HYDRATE-  It has taken me awhile to find the perfect <a id="_GPLITA_12" style= "border: none !important; display: inline-block !important; text-indent: 0px !important; float: none !important; font-weight: bold !important; height: auto !important; margin: 0px !important; min-height: 0px !important; min-width: 0px !important; padding: 0px !important; text-transform: uppercase !important; text-decoration: underline !important; vertical-align: baseline !important; width: auto !important; background: transparent !important;" title="Click to Continue > by FineDealSoft" href="#" name= "_GPLITA_12">BALANCE<img style= "border: none !important; display: inline-block !important; text-indent: 0px !important; float: none !important; font-weight: bold !important; height: 10px !important; margin: 0px 0px 0px 3px !important; min-height: 0px !important; min-width: 0px !important; padding: 0px !important; text-transform: uppercase !important; text-decoration: underline !important; vertical-align: super !important; width: 10px !important; background: transparent !important;" src="http://cdncache-a.akamaihd.net/items/it/img/arrow-10x10.png" alt="" /></a> of morning foods that will work well with diving.  Some foods are too greasy, and can cause me to be a bit nauseous. (Not to mention worry that I may have to #2 on the boat, the terror!!!)  Some foods are too high in carbs and feel like a tons of bricks in my stomach. (Maybe 2 bagels with ham and cheese wasn't the best choice this morning)  Bananas are my to go choice for diving.  They bind your stomach, fill you up, and add vitamins to help you keep hydrated and focused such as potassium, manganese, Vitamin C, B6, Folate.   I usually eat two because one is not enough to keep me sated.  If you need a larger breakfast in the morning, pair with a piece of toast.  For after the dive, I always bring a snack, usually a granola bar will do the trick, or a fresh piece of fruit to clear your mouth from the salt.  Another tip is to make sure you have a drink of water right before you put your mask on.  Your mouth will get dry quickly, it is refreshing and hydrating to take a quick sip before your dive.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Bananas.jpg"> <img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-1090" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Bananas-1024x680.jpg" alt="Bananas" width="700" height="464" /></a></p> <p> </p> <p>BREATHE THROUGH YOUR MOUTH- Think of how you are breathing reading this, it is probably through your nose.  90% of our lives we breathe through our nose, unless we are completely congested.  While diving, you train yourself to breathe through your mouth.  You are probably thinking that this seems a relatively easy thing to do, but being faced with it after not having done it for awhile can be a shock to your system.  You will fight it because your are not used to it, and it will make you nervous. I live in Pittsburgh, and do not get to dive often enough to practice these skills constantly.  So I started practicing on the boat ride out to my next diving destination completely breathing through my mouth the whole ride out.  It made a WORLD of a difference in my diving, I was prepared for when my nose was in the mask, I didn't have that rush of panic that comes when your brain triggers that you can't breathe.  It <a id= "_GPLITA_14" style= "border: none !important; display: inline-block !important; text-indent: 0px !important; float: none !important; font-weight: bold !important; height: auto !important; margin: 0px !important; min-height: 0px !important; min-width: 0px !important; padding: 0px !important; text-transform: uppercase !important; text-decoration: underline !important; vertical-align: baseline !important; width: auto !important; background: transparent !important;" title="Click to Continue > by FineDealSoft" href="#" name= "_GPLITA_14">HELPED<img style= "border: none !important; display: inline-block !important; text-indent: 0px !important; float: none !important; font-weight: bold !important; height: 10px !important; margin: 0px 0px 0px 3px !important; min-height: 0px !important; min-width: 0px !important; padding: 0px !important; text-transform: uppercase !important; text-decoration: underline !important; vertical-align: super !important; width: 10px !important; background: transparent !important;" src="http://cdncache-a.akamaihd.net/items/it/img/arrow-10x10.png" alt="" /></a> me immensely, and I hope you try it on you next dive.  If this doesn't convince you, it is stated that you can lower your heart rate simply breathing long, deep breathes through your mouth!</p> <p><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/mouth.jpg"> <img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-1094" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/mouth.jpg" alt="mouth" width="670" height="503" /></a></p> <p> </p>

I met Patrick at a Deep Local party, and was introduced by our mutual friend Jeff Swenson.  Little did we know our history at that time, but we do now!  You just have to listen to the episode to hear it.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">I will tell you that Patrick Jordan is the Artistic Director of his company <a href= "http://barebonesproductions.com/about/" target="_blank">Barebones Productions</a> in Pittsburgh, PA.  A local theater company that pushes the envelope, bringing plays to life that have an edge, or grit.  I saw my first (but not last), Barebones production of The Elaborate Entrance Of Chad Diety at <a href= "http://www.acehotel.com/pittsburgh" target="_blank">The Ace Hotel</a> recently, and was blown away by the production.  It was a sold out show, and I had such a blast during it.  I couldn't wait to have Patrick on to grill him about the in's and out's of putting that show together.  I mean, there was a real wrestling ring!</p> <p style="text-align: left;">Little did I know, we were going to have an epic and hilarious chat.  Topics discussed-</p> <p style="text-align: left;">What exactly happened to Patrick's phone.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">The history of Barebones</p> <p style="text-align: left;">Putting together The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Diety</p> <p style="text-align: left;">Acting challenges In Pittsburgh</p> <p style="text-align: left;">Patrick's crush on <a href= "https://twitter.com/MatthewModine?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor" target="_blank">Matthew Modine</a></p> <p style="text-align: left;">Voice Over Work</p> <p style="text-align: left;">Patrick's ability to hypnotize himself</p> <p style="text-align: left;">Marta's dark secrets.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">What didn't we talk about?</p> <p style="text-align: left;">Patrick has graciously volunteered himself for a contest for this episode-  The winner gets a recording by Patrick that will lull you into sleep, giving you the best relaxation of your life.  No, this is real, we are doing this!</p> <p style="text-align: left;">Ways to Enter-</p> <ul> <li style="text-align: left;">Subscribe to the Marta On The Move Newsletter</li> <li style="text-align: left;">Like MOTM Facebook page, share this post, and tag two friends!</li> </ul> <p>You know you want it...</p> <p>Photos by John Schalcosky!  Closing music by Aaron Leeder</p> <p>Sponsored by <a href="http://www.floatpittsburgh.com" target="_blank">Levity Pgh</a> All listeners get $5 off with code "Marta"</p> <p>NOT sponsored by Larrimor's.

Pittsburgh Speakeasy History- Marta On The Move Ep 81
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><span style= "color: #333300; text-decoration: underline;">#81 Pittsburgh Speakeasies with John Schalcosky and Mike Mills</span></span></p> <p style="text-align: left;">Hey all!  This month I am keeping up with the <em><a href= "https://www.facebook.com/PittsburghDrinks2017/?fref=ts">Pittsburgh Drinks</a> </em>theme, and offering a part two to the episode prior to this one that featured Sean Enright and Cody McDevitt.  If you haven't listened to that one yet, I suggest you do!  It is full of interesting drinks recipes, tips, and facts about Pittsburgh that are featured in their book,<em> Pittsburgh Drinks.</em></p> <p style="text-align: left;">We touch on Pittsburgh speakeasies on that episode, but I wanted to take that a step farther, and bring on my true, and trusted researcher of pretty much everything, John Schalcosky from <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/OddPittsburgh/?fref=ts" target= "_blank">The Odd, Fascinating, and Mysterious History Of Pittsburgh</a> to dig up what he found on Pittsburgh speakeasies.  I also wanted to pair that with some whiskey tasting tips in honor of The Whiskey Rebellion Festival, and age old bootleggers.  Mike Mills joins us, and instructs us on how to taste whiskey properly, along with some other tips for your at home consumption.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">We chat about where the term speakeasy comes from, what made it relevant, the term Blind Tiger (If you don't know what that is, you will love this), what our favorite idea of a speakeasy would be in Pittsburgh, and much, much more.  I love the energy of this episode. We had a great time, and I hope you will too.  So grab that snifter, pour yourself a nib, and come join us.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">Hope to see everyone at the Pittsburgh Drinks book release party on March 27th!</p> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_2527" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 800px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060445.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2527"><img class="size-large wp-image-2527" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060445-1024x769.jpg" alt= "Whiskey Rebellion, speakeasies, whiskey tasting, bitters tasting, history and more on Marta On The Move Podcast" width="800" height="601" /></a></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd">Mike Mills, John Schalcosky, and Marta Napoleone Mazzoni</dd> </dl> </div> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_2526" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 800px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060435.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2526"><img class="size-large wp-image-2526" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060435-1024x769.jpg" alt="Woodford Reserve Whiskey Tasting" width="800" height= "601" /></a></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd">Woodford Reserve Whiskey Tasting</dd> </dl> </div> <p style="text-align: left;"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060426.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2525"><img class= "aligncenter size-large wp-image-2525" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060426-1024x757.jpg" alt="P1060426" width="800" height="591" /></a><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060425.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2524"><img class= "aligncenter size-large wp-image-2524" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060425-1024x769.jpg" alt="P1060425" width="800" height="601" /></a><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060424.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2523"><img class= "aligncenter size-large wp-image-2523" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060424-1024x769.jpg" alt="P1060424" width="800" height="601" /></a><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060433.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2522"><img class= "aligncenter size-large wp-image-2522" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060433-1024x769.jpg" alt="P1060433" width="800" height="601" /></a><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060429.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2521"><img class= "aligncenter size-large wp-image-2521" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060429-1024x769.jpg" alt="P1060429" width="800" height="601" /></a></p> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_2520" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 800px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060427.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2520"><img class="size-large wp-image-2520" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060427-1024x913.jpg" alt="John Schalcosky" width="800" height="713" /></a></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd">John Schalcosky</dd> </dl> </div> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_2519" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 800px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060423.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2519"><img class="size-large wp-image-2519" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060423-1024x769.jpg" alt="Mike Mills" width="800" height="601" /></a></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd">Mike Mills</dd> </dl> </div> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_2517" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 800px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060421.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2517"><img class="size-large wp-image-2517" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060421-1024x828.jpg" alt="Pittsburgh Speakeasy History on Marta On The Move Podcast" width="800" height="647" /></a></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd">How to taste bitters 101</dd> </dl> </div> <p style="text-align: left;"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060446.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2528"><img class= "aligncenter size-large wp-image-2528" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060446-1024x769.jpg" alt="P1060446" width="800" height="601" /></a></p>

Pittsburgh Drinks- Marta On The Move Episode 80
<p style="text-align: left;">Pittsburgh has a very long, and semi forgotten history in the world of cocktails.  I just recently learned about a lot of it through the book <em><a href= "https://mobile.twitter.com/pgh_drinks" target="_blank">Pittsburgh Drinks</a> : A History of Cocktails, Nightlife & Bartending Tradition </em>by Sean Enright, and Cody Mcdevitt.  If you are a listener of my show, you know I love a great cocktail, and am constantly striving to improve my mixing abilities at home.  With that in mind, I wanted to do a 2 part release featuring, and praising Pittsburgh as not just an incredible town for craft cocktails, but also showcasing that our history in this area is richer than most would think.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">Part 1 <em>Pittsburgh Drinks</em> with Sean Enright and Cody Mcdevitt.  This episode bring the incredible talents of these two gentleman.  Sean starts us off in the episode to aid in our Craft Cocktail Series, teaching those at home how to up their game at making cocktails.  He mixes up (out of my very short supply), two cocktails that you can easily make at home to impress your guests, or have on a random Tuesday evening to treat yourself.  <a href="http://maggiesfarmrum.com" target="_blank">Maggie's Farm Rum</a> is the main focus of these cocktails, and makes for a perfect sip.  Thank you for sponsoring this episode! Love having distilleries thriving in Pittsburgh once again!</p> <p style="text-align: left;">The second half of our podcast we bring in Cody Mcdevitt, an award winning journalist that teamed up with Sean to bring their book<a href= "https://www.facebook.com/PittsburghDrinks2017/" target= "_blank"><em> Pittsburgh Drinks</em> </a>to life!  This episode touches on Pittsburgh craft cocktail history, the process of publishing, recording, and documenting recipes, and information from folks involved with the book. There was a lot I didn't know about our town, and I am sure you will be just as surprised as I was to learn that Pittsburgh is a key city in the craft cocktail world.  I also love the recipes included within it's pages, along with pictures of what your cocktail "should" look like.  Don't worry if it doesn't just try, try again!</p> <p style="text-align: left;">Hope to see everyone at the book release party on March 27th at <a href= "http://www.spiritpgh.com/events/2017/3/27/pittsburgh-drinks-book-launch-party" target="_blank">Spirit!</a>  It is sure to be an awesome event that is full of surprises.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">You can purchase your own copy of the beautifully designed, and written book <a href= "https://www.amazon.com/Pittsburgh-Drinks-Cocktails-Nightlife-Bartending/dp/1467137782" target="_blank">here.  </a></p> <p style="text-align: left;">Stay tuned for the next episode that shines more knowledge about Pittsburgh's Speakeasy history, and included a Whiskey 101 Tasting session with Mike Mills, and John Schalcosky from <a href="http://www.twitter.com/oddpittsburgh" target="_blank">The Odd, Fascinating, and Mysterious History of Pittsburgh! </a> Don't forget to subscribe to the newsletter to get episode first, and also unvarnished content.  Cheers!</p> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_2499" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 707px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060349.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2499"><img class="wp-image-2499 size-large" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060349-707x1024.jpg" alt= "Sean Enright making cocktails from Maggie's Farm Rum for Pittsburgh Drinks on Marta On The Move Podcast" width="707" height="1024" /></a></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd">Sean Enright making cocktails from Maggie's Farm Rum for Pittsburgh Drinks</dd> </dl> </div> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_2500" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 800px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060350.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2500"><img class="wp-image-2500 size-large" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060350-1024x769.jpg" alt="Pittsburgh Drinks on Marta On The Move Podcast" width="800" height="601" /></a></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd">Cody McDevitt and Sean Enright chat about the history of Pittsburgh cocktails</dd> </dl> </div> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_2512" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 800px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060373.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2512"><img class="wp-image-2512 size-large" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/P1060373-1024x720.jpg" alt= "Cody Mcdeviit, Sean Enright, and Marta Mazzoni on Marta On The Move Podcast for Pittsburgh Drinks.

All of our aged rums are now pushing two years old and aged in neutral rum casks, same as most Caribbean distillers do, to preserve the flavors and aromas produced by tertiary esterification, rather than the oaky flavors produced by new charred or ex-whiskey casks used by most American craft rum distillers. All of our stills and manufacturing processes are on display right behind the cocktail bar in our distillery’s tasting room located in Pittsburgh’s industrial Strip District."</p> <p><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/logo.png" rel="attachment wp-att-2496"><img class= "aligncenter size-full wp-image-2496" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/logo.png" alt="logo" width="178" height="230" /></a><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/main.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2497"><img class= "aligncenter size-large wp-image-2497" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/main.jpg" alt="main" width="461" height="727" /></a></p>

The Magic Castle: An Inside Look- Marta On The Move Episode 79
<h4 style="text-align: center;"><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><span style= "color: #000080; text-decoration: underline;">#79 Joe Furlow- General Manager of The Magic Castle</span></span></h4> <p>I have traveled quite a bit, and have visited places that I thought were incredible, and some places that were all hype.  I have wanted to visit a place called <a href= "http://www.magiccastle.com">The Magic Castle</a> in Los Angeles the moment someone told me that it existed.  A secret society of magicians? WHAT?  Truth be told, it was all I could think about for a while.  So when the opportunity presented itself, I jumped.  I could not wait any longer.</p> <p>I won't go into too much history about the place ( You will have to tune into the episode for that!).  I will tell you that <a href="http://www.twitter.com/Magic%20Castle_AMA" target="_blank">The Magic Castle</a> or The Academy of Magical Arts was incorporated in 1961, and shortly after The Castle opened its doors on January 2, 1963, and has been in operation ever since.  It has become known as “The Mecca for Magicians” throughout the world to come, entertain, and practice their craft.</p> <p>I truly was like a kid in a candy store when I walked in, and I smiled the ENTIRE time.  they nearly had to drag me out when it was time to leave.  My friend Joshua Antoon and I saw 6 shows that evening, had delight cocktails, and conversations with magicians from all around the world.  Shout outs to the magicians that were performing that we got to take in- Hubb, <a href="http://www.matricardo.com" target="_blank">Mat Ricardo,</a> <a href="http://www.rubenvilagrand.com" target= "_blank">Rubén Vilagrand</a>, Jack Nasher, Jeff Ezell, and <a href="http://www.davidandleeman.com" target= "_blank">David and Leeman</a>.  You were all unique and incredible!</p> <p>There are way too many things I love about the castle.  A:  It's makes you feel special just getting in  B: You have to dress up  C: No pictures allowed  D:  You can explore to you hearts content.  (That last bit had me all over the place looking in rooms, nooks, and crannies.  I wanted to drink it all in, every last bit, and I feel as though I haven't even scratched the surface. ) Which leads me to E:  They bring in rotating magicians from all over the world!   Meaning, you could go week to week, and see different acts every time you go.  They have 5 theaters in the building!  I am not kidding you.  They also have 5 bars... Yes, you heard me right.  There is so much I want to tell about the place, but I will just let Joe take this one, and maybe after the interview I will geek out a bit more about it.</p> <p>I can't wait to return to feel like a kid again.  Hats off to you MC, keep that magic alive!</p> <p>-M</p> <p>PS:  HUGE thanks to <a href="http://magicwayne.com" target="_blank">Wayne Kawamoto</a>, and my great friend Nick Carifo for making all this possible.  We had such an amazing time!  Closing Music by <a href= "https://aaronleeder.bandcamp.com" target="_blank">Aaron Leeder</a></p> <p>This episode is sponsored by Levity!  All listeners get $5 off their floats with code "Marta" <a href= "http://www.floatlevity.com" target= "_blank">www.floatlevity.com</a></p> <p>Check out this episode I had with magician <a href= "http://www.leeterbosic.com" target="_blank">Lee Terbosic </a>about his Houdini stunt!</p> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_2425" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 800px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/0I4A1064.jpeg" rel="attachment wp-att-2425"><img class="wp-image-2425 size-large" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/0I4A1064-1024x683.jpeg" alt= "The Magic Castle, Los Angeles, Academy of magical Arts, Marta On The Move Podcast" width="800" height="534" /></a></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd">Marta On The Move heads to The Magic Castle in LA.</dd> </dl> </div> <p>Photo by: Brian Joseph Ochab</p> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_2487" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 800px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/FURLOW-pic-1.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2487"><img class="wp-image-2487 size-large" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/FURLOW-pic-1-1024x682.jpg" alt= "Joe Furlow General Manager of The Magic Castle in LA on Marta On The Move podcast" width="800" height="533" /></a></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd">General Manager Joe Furlow and sons.</dd> </dl> </div> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_2489" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 960px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/15965271_10154427009608155_6402097942856714633_n.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2489"><img class="wp-image-2489 size-full" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/15965271_10154427009608155_6402097942856714633_n.jpg" alt= "Marta On The Move is about to head into the Magic Castle in LA for an inside look on her podcast" width="960" height="960" /></a></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd">Me about to speak to the owl to be let inside!</dd> </dl> </div> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_2484" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 800px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Hat-Hare-Pub.Magcian-Bartender-Mike-Piscotta-2.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2484"><img class="wp-image-2484 size-large" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Hat-Hare-Pub.Magcian-Bartender-Mike-Piscotta-2-1024x878.jpg" alt="Hat & Hare Pub.Magcian-Bartender Mike Piscotta #2" width= "800" height="686" /></a></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd">There are magicians performing in every nook and cranny</dd> </dl> </div> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_2485" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 800px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Magic-Castle-Day.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2485"><img class="wp-image-2485 size-large" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Magic-Castle-Day-1024x684.jpg" alt="Magic Castle (Day)" width="800" height="534" /></a></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd">Outside of The Magic Castle</dd> </dl> </div> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_2488" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style= "width: 960px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/15965076_10154945373929628_1893889144617068781_n.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2488"><img class="wp-image-2488 size-full" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/15965076_10154945373929628_1893889144617068781_n.jpg" alt="Marta On The Move features The Magic Castle" width="960" height="720" /></a></dt> </dl> </div>

City Of Play- Marta On The Move Episode 78
<h4 style="text-align: center;"><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><span style= "color: #800080; text-decoration: underline;">#78 City Of Play- Adam Nelson and Greg Manley</span></span></h4> <p>I have been waiting for this episode for probably about two years.  I have covered other events for <a href= "http://www.cityofplay.org">City Of Play, </a>and am a HUGE fan of this organization.  I feel as though I was just waiting for the perfect moment to record, maybe even waiting to get to know the organizers better.  I just knew, I wanted to wait to record to bring their story to all of you, and I am glad I did.  In the two years I have known them, they have become very great friends, and it just made this episode that much more fulfilling to record.</p> <p>Adam and Greg are awesome, they provide an invaluable service to our city. "City of Play is a creative agency that designs interactions and builds real-world games for businesses and communities."  This is what the description is on their website. <a href="http://www.facebook.com/cityofplay">City Of Play</a> is so much more than that though, it is about relationships, team building, engaging the people, and places in, and around our city.  It is about FUN, pure fun, and working together without scorn, or judgement.  EXAMPLE!</p> <p>The first time I walked into an event hosted by what was then called Obscure Games. It was for the Hambones Wednesday game night.  I didn't know anyone there, I was an outcast, and I instantly wanted to turn around and leave before I walked into the door.  Things changed though, people said hi, folks looked up from their games and invited me to play.  A gentleman named Ben Shulman was the nicest guy I have met to date, and welcomed me to sit in on a game that A: They were halfway into playing B: That I have no clue how to play.  Ben explained everything, and we had such a great time doing it. I was hooked!</p> <p><a href="http://www.twitter.com/cityofplay">City Of Play</a> has evolved since then into amazing things, their festival Come Out and Play happens yearly, they offer companies in Pittsburgh team building exercises (Adam I know you hate that term, lol) They put up a huge installation of the game Operation for UPMC, and are just on the tip of the iceberg for exciting things.  Oh, and they put on Dodgeball, my absolute favorite.  You can see me rocking out in the photos below.</p> <p>Join Adam, Greg, and myself as we delve into the world of adult gaming.  I am sure you will have a ball, and maybe even join in the next event!  I hope to see you there!  True personalities pictured below-</p> <p><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/IMG_20170126_161404.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2421"><img class= "aligncenter size-large wp-image-2421" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/IMG_20170126_161404-1024x871.jpg" alt="IMG_20170126_161404" width="800" height="680" /></a></p> <p><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/13151451_10206804345654868_6718436404251063725_n.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2420"><img class= "aligncenter wp-image-2420 size-full" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/13151451_10206804345654868_6718436404251063725_n.jpg" alt= "City Of Play Pittsburgh, PA sits with Marta On The Move Podcast, game central" width="960" height="960" /></a></p> <p>Photo by <a href="http://lindsaycdill.zenfolio.com" target= "_blank">Lindsay dill</a></p> <p><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/12976791_10153424470185718_5091879835876079869_o.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2422"><img class= "aligncenter size-large wp-image-2422" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/12976791_10153424470185718_5091879835876079869_o-1024x684.jpg" alt="12976791_10153424470185718_5091879835876079869_o" width="800" height="534" /></a></p> <p>Marta On The Move Loves Dodgeball.  Photo by <a href= "http://justinmerriman.photoshelter.com/index" target= "_blank">Justin Merriman</a></p> <p> </p>

Marcel Lamont Walker- Marta On The Move Episode 77
<h3 style="text-align: center;"><span style= "text-decoration: underline; color: #0000ff;">#77 Marcel Lamont Walker</span></h3> <p style="text-align: left;">I cannot draw, I truly don't have great penmanship either, so I am constantly in awe of folks that have this ability.  I think most of us are "drawn" to them, the creatives.  Having a talent that may take some shaping, but is really THERE.  I feel as though my first form of  influential artwork was comics.  I loved them.  I am sad to say, that <em>Barbie</em> was one of the first ones I had because of my catholic grade school upbringing.  Anything I didn't get to smuggle in, was provided for by my older brother, and sister.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">I will admit, they had a great *ahem* book and film collection that was well past my years, but no comics.  <em>Barbie</em> was the only subscription service allowed to be delivered to the house   I could go into the whole theory about self esteem, and why this, for me was a poor subscription choice from my parents, but that's what I got.  Shortly after Barbie, came <em>Batman.</em>  What a jump, a release, a slight breath of seeing a glimmer of who I am as a person.  Someone I could relate to, finally look up to, and envision myself working side by side.  Yes, I know.... <em>Batman</em>.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">I would think that this is pretty standard for folks that enjoy comics.  Which is why, after my long rant (thank you for humoring me), I present to you a man with ridiculous talent, creativity, and passion, <a href= "https://about.me/marcel_walker" target="_blank">Marcel Lamont Walker.</a></p> <p style="text-align: left;">I met Marcel at a <a href= "http://toonseum.org" target="_blank">Toonseum</a> event through our mutual friend Stu Neft.  He was instantly likable, and I found him to be genuine in his enthusiasm about..... everything.  I feel rather confident in saying that people who have met Marcel, would say he is a spot of sunshine.  It is always refreshing to meet someone, and know quickly that you would like to hang out with them more than a passing greeting.  Marcel was very much this person.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">Aside from having a long list of creative traits-  musician (yes the man can sing too!, author, teacher, writer, artist, photographer, and illustrator.  He has things that I just wanted to chat with him about, mainly his comic <em>Hero Corp., International,</em> and the collaborative effort with<a href="http://holocaustcenterpgh.org" target="_blank"> The Holocaust Center of Greater Pittsburgh</a> called, <em>CHUTZ- POW!</em> <em>Superheroes Of the Holocaust. </em></p> <p style="text-align: left;">I have a in depth and charming interview with him.  I loved having him on my show, and you will love all of the inspirational things he has to say.  Enjoy.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">ALSO!  Contest Giveaway!-</p> <h4 style="text-align: left;"><span style="color: #0000ff;">Marcel is giving away a big prize to a lucky winner!  1 pair of Chutz-Pow comics AND a personal sketch of YOURSELF as a super hero!

A Very Westworld Christmas Fan Theory Podcast- Marta On The Move Episode 75
<h4 style="text-align: center;"><span style= "text-decoration: underline; color: #008000;">#75 A Very Westworld Christmas</span></h4> <p>Alright y'all.  I wanted to end this year with something super fun.  What is more fun sitting around with some of your good friends and chatting about fan theories for the hit show<a href="http://www.hbo.com/westworld" target= "_blank"> WESTWORLD!!!!!</a>   If you are not a fan, <del>We can't be friends ,</del> or haven't finished the first season, <del>what are you thinking?!,</del>  then you should really turn away right................ NOW.  There are not many shows out there where I truly geek out.  Alright, alright quiet down!!! Who knew<a href="https://www.netflix.com/title/80057281" target= "_blank"> Stranger Things</a> was going to blow all of our socks off, AND that I would get to interview one of the stars of the show <a href= "http://epicastnetwork.com/marta-on-the-move-ep-64-david-k-harbour-talks-stranger-things" target="_blank">(shameless plug)</a>.  That is besides the point, the point is, there is hardly a show out there anymore where I lose my mind over it.  I crave it, I obsess, and talk countless theories over it with friends when I should be working! Hi <a href="http://www.aldosfoods.com" target="_blank">Aldo's Foods!</a>  I could not let this moment pass me by to invite some friends over and chat about all of the fan theories that are swirling out there about this show!</p> <p>To those who don't know <del>once again wtf</del>, Westworld is aired on <a href="http://www.hbo.com" target= "_blank">HBO </a>and stars, <a href= "http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000164/" target="_blank">Anthony Hopkins</a>, <a href="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0942482/" target="_blank">Jeffery Wright</a>,<a href= "http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005188/" target="_blank"> James Marsden,</a><a href="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0628601/" target= "_blank"> Thandie Newton</a>, <a href= "http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0939697/" target="_blank">Evan Rachel Wood</a>, (best cry face ever), and <a href= "http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000438/" target="_blank">Ed Harris </a>(among many others).  We do not know what year it is, but you find out shortly that there is a western world made up of robots, hosts as they call them, that are part of some "experience" for the guests.  The guests are high paying human clients that get to live out their fantasies, risk free in this sort of game.  Like walking into your very own soap opera.  The hosts are programmed to have a script, until one day, things start to go off the rails.   THAT is all I am telling you.</p> <p>If you are a fan of the show you will have some fun sitting with us as we ramble through our thoughts.  We recorded this before the finale, and then after the finale, so you get to see if any of the theories we had came true.  What an ending, folks!  AND what an ending to 2016!  May all your holidays be joyful and bright!  See you in the new year!</p> <p>Love you all,</p> <p>Marta</p> <p>PS:  Two things-</p> <ol> <li> I am on a mission to get someone Westworld on my show. So if you know anyone, pull some strings.</li> <li>I actually bid pathetically on an original Anthony Hopkins artwork.  It did not happen, and I think the broker was laughing at me via email.  Sad day.</li> </ol>

Sean Collier- Marta On The Move Episode 73
<p>The first time I met <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/seancollierpgh/" target="_blank">Sean Collier, </a>I didn't know what to expect. I knew his dad was a popular name in Pittsburgh, and so is Sean's.  He was very quiet at a gathering we were all invited to, and I was honestly not sure if we would get along.  To be honest, I was nervous to talk to him.  He is probably laughing at me right now reading this. Well, it shows how much I know, we totally hit it off, and are now good buds.  He is one of the better eggs in our city, and I love what he does.  I have been on his podcast called <a href="http://handlethetruth.weebly.com" target= "_blank">You Can't Handle The Truth</a>, where he, and Aaron Kleiber,(another awesome dude) review movies after an advance screening of them.  Not sure you know this about me, but I am obsessed with movies.  I used to keep lists when I was little of any category you can think of.</p> <ul> <li>Hottest actors</li> <li>Best on screen performance</li> <li>Best Love scene (I was a sick child)</li> <li>Best actress</li> <li>Best gruesome death (Once again.....)</li> </ul> <p>The list went on... I still have these notebooks someplace stored in my mom's house like a time capsule.  As I got older, I graduated to writing my own reviews, for no apparent reason then to get my thoughts out. I never submitted them, hell, I never even showed them to anyone else.   I just liked doing it. I am sure if I reread them now, they would be both humorous and lame. With that being said, I wanted to pick Sean's brain about how the nomination process works for movie awards, what (in his mind) makes a great movie, how he writes reviews all the time without burning out, and how in the heck did he land one of the coolest jobs ever!  Seeing movies before they hit theaters?   AMAZING!</p> <p>Grab your popcorn, candy, *ahem* bottle of wine, and tune into this fun conversation we had after we viewed <em>Allied</em> with Brad Pitt.  I promise you will like it, even if you don't, we won't judge you.  HEH, see what I did there?</p> <p>Tune into Marta On The Move on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!  Tell me what YOU want to hear, and I will tell you if I am curious about it. lol.  Thank you everyone for letting me do what I do.</p> <p> </p>

Why You Should Sail The Greek Islands- Marta On The Move Episode 72
<p>Hello everyone!   This post is long overdue!  This summer I went on a solo trip to learn to sail in the Greek Islands.  I had quite the adventure, and an interesting connection that was made during travel plans.  In short, captain of the boat I was going to sail with had an emergency, and had to leave.  This left me with no place to go 2 weeks before my trip!  I was still holding out hope in trying to sail, so I reached out to a group online Girls Love Travel, and simply posted this-   “Help! My Captain of the boat left, and I am now struggling to find a new boat to stay on.  Anyone know anyone in Greece with a boat? Thanks!”  A gal came forward in the comments section by the name of Jessie Stele.  Let’s go back even farther now…  *time warp*</p> <p>Marta On The Move grew up attending a very small school called Our Lady Of Fatima, a Catholic grade school that she attending for 8 years.  To give you an idea how small it was, there were 5 gals in our 8th grade graduating class.  Heading to public school the following year was quite a wake up call, anyways…. <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/AdrianaCruising/?fref=ts" target= "_blank"> Jessie Stele</a>was one of 5 girls in my graduating class whom I have not seen, nor talked to in 25 years.  She just happened to be sailing with her fiancee in the Greek Islands.  Jessie saw my post, and commented “Hey Marta, It’s Jessie!  I am in the Greek Islands on a boat!  You are welcome to come stay with us anytime!”  The chances of this… I don’t even know what the odds are, but I imagine them to be pretty slim.  There are over 125K women in that group, and the fact that-</p> <p>A. She had wifi</p> <p>B. She had been online at all (remember she is on a boat)</p> <p>C. That she happened to see my post! They get pushed down very quickly.</p> <p>So I bet you are asking…. WELL WHAT HAPPENED?!  Well, I’ll tell you what happened is that my original captain found me an ex Navy Captain from Australia, Captain Chris, who was sailing near Samos, so I flew to meet him and we crewed his boat “The Skylark” together down the Grecian Islands.  It was one of the best times I have had in my life.  After I returned from my trip, Jessie came back to Pittsburgh, and we reconnected finally after 25 years.  I thought it was incredible how we found each other after all this time, and what better way to celebrate it, than having her on the show to give our thoughts on Greece, and why sailing is the only way to see this wonderful place.</p> <p>I always say that traveling let’s you connect with people all over the world of different cultures, and teaches you many things that stretch your mind.  In this case, it brought us around full circle to where it all began as kids.  I hope you enjoy our flashbacks to school, our stories of how we came to be, and our adventures in Greece!   As always,  “Keep it moving”  Be sure to stay after our conversation to hear some very windy conversation that I recorded when Captain Chris and I were on the open water sailing in Greece.  He will tell you how magical it is to be on a boat.</p> <p>Follow along on Marta’s adventures on <a href= "http://www.facebook.com/martaonthemove">Facebook</a>, <a href="http://www.instagram.com/martaonthemovepodcast" target="_blank">Instagram,</a> and <a href= "http://www.twitter.com/icantfindmarta" target= "_blank">Twitter!</a>  Stories of Croatia will be up soon, I promise.</p> <p>Marta On The Move is sponsored by<a href= "http://www.floatpittsburgh.com/" target="_blank"> Levity Pgh</a>!  All Listeners get $5 off their floats with code “Marta”</p> <p>Hey! How do you like the new website layout?! I am always working on it, and would appreciate feedback! Cheers!</p> <p>Now to enjoy our 4th grade class photo.  Can you pick us out of this bunch of crazies?</p>

Lee Terbosic- Marta On The Move Episode 71
<h3 style="text-align: center;"><span style= "text-decoration: underline; color: #800000;">Magician Lee Terbosic On Marta On The Move</span></h3> <p>Dance, magic dance!  Rounding out my all thing mystical, spooky AND magical IS a magician.  <a href= "http://www.leeterbosic.com" target="_blank">Lee Terbosic</a> joins Marta On The Move for a most engaging interview.  We are all in love with magic since birth.  Isn't everything you experience early in life magical?  As we age, we start to lose that sense of everyday magic. Luckily, for that, there are magicians out there that still offer that sense of wonder, that unexplainable moment, or trick that you can't explain.  There is a reason <a href= "http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Harry_Potter" target= "_blank">Harry Potter</a> is one of the most popular stories of all time.  We all love it!!!!</p> <p>I have been waiting to get a magician on my show for quite a bit, and I saw the perfect opportunity when I found out that a famous, local Pittsburgh magician was going to try and recreate the incredible escape stunt that <a href= "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Houdini" target="_blank">Harry Houdini</a> performed in 1916 in downtown Pittsburgh!  Lee Terbosic has been planning about plotting for years to pull this off. 100 years since Houdini performed it, in the same spot, at the same time, on the same date.  Nothing lines up that perfectly in life, nothing.  It was meant to be for Lee.  Lee has been traveling the globe as an entertainer and magician.  Selling out shows left, and right, he was featuring on <a href= "http://www.wenningent.com/lee-terbosic-americas-got-talent/">America's Got Talent,</a></p> <p>Lee's stunt was incredible, and I am so fortunate to have met him, and gotten to go deep behind what motivates him to do what he does.  I have not met a more passionate, driven, nice person, WHO also happens to be incredible at magic.  He blew my mind with tricks right in front of me, and rekindled my childhood awe and wonder.  It is always there, but sometimes you need something so light, that reminds you not to take this game of life so seriously.</p> <p>Please join in this amazingly, awesome and introspective chat, I think I cried at some point...  Did I just admit that?</p> <p>Congrats, Lee, and well done!! I am so happy to have met you! Check him out on all media @leeterbosic and his incredible show called <a href="http://www.leeterbosic.com/bamboozled/" target="_blank">Bamboozled</a>!</p> <p>Hey you, yes you!</p> <p>Please take a moment to rate and review my show on <a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/marta-on-move-podcast-highlighting/id955151326?mt=2" target="_blank">iTunes! </a> Pretty please!  Thank you so much!</p> <p><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/unnamed-2.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2279"><img class= "alignleft size-full wp-image-2279" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/unnamed-2.jpg" alt="unnamed-2" width="927" height="618" /></a></p> <p> </p>

I ask you!</p> <p>I am a huge fan of escape rooms and immersive theater, so I could not wait to sit down with Jeffery Carpenter and Scott Simmons to chat behind the scenes of this venture.

Atlas Obscura- Marta On The Move Episode 63
<p>Oh we all have that little curiosity for the strange and unusual in us.   Some, I would say, more than others. I like to think I have a pretty healthy amount of it.  Going in search of the road or path less taken, searching out broken toys, trying to find the things in life that break the traditional norm.  That... is why I am obsessed with<a href= "http://www.altasobscura.com"> Atlas Obscura</a>.</p> <p>I came across their show one day when it popped up on my <a href="http://www.facebook.com/martaonthemove">Facebook f</a>eed.  It was a video, and I was driving at that time (I know, I know, eyes on the road!), but I clicked it to listen, and was instantly hooked.  I didn't even know it was a video, here I was tuning in thinking it was your standard podcast.  I probably heard about 5 episodes on the transit home.  When I got home and looked at my phone, I realized they were all videos, and then instantly had to go back through to listen and watch them all.  Their videos are hilarious.  The gentleman (Dylan Thuras) takes you on a journey to a spectacular place.  His face pops up on screen, and in that moment you realize his passion for what he is about to tell you.  Surrounded by a decent collection of board games (I knew we would get along), Dylan can show you a world you never saw before, sometimes in your own backyard.</p> <p>We hit it off right away, being kindred folk in search of magical things.  Tune in as I find about the origin of Atlas Obscura, how the two co founders met, what <a href= "http://www.nailgaiman.com">Neil Gaiman s</a>aid about them (what!), where they are off to next, and also our rants about how we love immersive theater.  Truly an awesome conversation.</p> <p><strong>ALSO, subscribe to my newsletter to hear the extra audio from Dylan about another fun location, and a tip for user of the Atlas Obscura website!  You guys get it first!</strong></p> <p>The videos themselves are hilarious, you must watch them.  I intend to find out who has the unique sense of humor over at Atlas Obscura that has me laughing out loud.  I am sure you want to know as well.  Join me as I chat with Dylan about the history of Atlas Obscura, how it became created, and where they are off to next!  Check out their new podcast they started!  So excited I can take them with me wherever I go!  I plan on visiting them in NYC!</p> <p>QUESTION!</p> <p>Have you been to any of the 100 wonders spots?  Tell us about it in the comments!</p> <p>Thank you to Dana at<a href= "http://www.thechurchrecordingstudio"> Church Recording Studio</a> for helping me out! <a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/IMG_3319.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2100"><img class= "alignleft size-full wp-image-2100" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/IMG_3319.jpg" alt="IMG_3319" width="805" height="517" /></a></p> <p><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/atlas_obscura_logo.png" rel="attachment wp-att-2103"><img class= "alignleft size-full wp-image-2103" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/atlas_obscura_logo.png" alt="atlas_obscura_logo" width="1000" height="400" /></a></p> <p><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/IMG_0670.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2101"><img class= "alignleft size-large wp-image-2101" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/IMG_0670-1024x683.jpg" alt="IMG_0670" width="700" height="467" /></a></p> <p><strong>This episode is sponsored by <a href= "http://www.xeroshoes.com">Xeroshoes.  </a>They are giving away a free pair of sandals to one lucky MOTM listener!  Check them out, and tell them where you heard of them on Marta On The Move! </strong></p> <p><strong>Ways to enter-</strong></p> <ul> <li><em>Share and tag Marta On The Move and 2 others on Facebook</em></li> <li><em>Like and tag 2 people on Instagram</em></li> <li><em>Retweet on Twitter</em></li> <li><em>Subscribe to the MOTM newsletter</em></li> </ul> <p>Your name can be submitted multiple times, and winner will be drawn the following Sunday.   Good Luck!</p> <p><a href="http://www.xeroshoes.com">Xeroshoes-</a></p> <p>"Imagine wearing a sandal that’s so light, you practically forget it’s there.

The Carrie Furnaces- Marta On The Move Episode 61
<p>Have you ever visited<a href= "https://www.riversofsteel.com/preservation/heritage-sites/carrie-furnaces/"> Carrie Furnaces</a>?  I am sure you have seen them all along the rivers, (possibly as you make your way to grab a brew from The Brew Gentleman), but have you ever stopped and toured them?  Well, if you haven't, you should.  They are incredible.  I wanted to showcase them on the show, so I scheduled to meet with Rob Baraff, and his partner Rick Rowlands from <a href= "http://www.riversofsteel.com">Rivers of Steel</a>.  Ron is a downright expert historian when it comes to Carrie Furnaces.</p> <p>Join me, and my lovely and talented friend Stephanie Strasburg as we journey into nooks and crannies of the Furnace to hear all about the incredible history that is just a tiny bit of what makes Pittsburgh so interesting. Love the artwork inside by <a href= "http://www.rakart.net">Ryan Keene!</a> Please excuse my freak out over their goats, and also enjoy the creepy piano music at the end of this episode, we couldn't resist playing the ancient instrument! Photo below.</p> <p>They are doing some really fun things there including hosting the upcoming <a href="http://www.Pogopalooza.com">Extreme Pogo World Championships</a>! You heard me right!  CMU alumni Nick Ryan is the Extreme Pogo company owner, and he is partnering with Rivers of Steel, and on July 7-9 you can enjoy the heck out of of some extreme pogo.   Honestly, I didn't know this was a thing, and cannot wait to see it!!!  There will be food trucks, live bands, and Furnace tours, which makes for a great summer weekend.  Check it out!</p> <p>Thank you to the wonderfully talented Stephanie Strasburg for these photos.  They are gorgeous!  Subscribe to the Marta On The Move Newsletter to see more shots from this episode!</p> <p>This episode is sponsored by Levity Pgh.  Listeners get $5 off all their float experiences with code "Marta" <a href= "http://www.floatlevity.com">www.floatlevity.com</a><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead01.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2050"><img class= "alignleft size-full wp-image-2050" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead01.jpg" alt="Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead01" width="864" height="577" /></a></p> <p><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead19.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2067"><img class= "alignleft size-full wp-image-2067" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead19.jpg" alt="Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead19" width="864" height="575" /></a></p> <p><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead14.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2062"><img class= "alignleft size-full wp-image-2062" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead14.jpg" alt="Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead14" width="864" height="577" /></a></p> <p><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead06.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2055"><img class= "alignleft size-full wp-image-2055" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead06.jpg" alt="Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead06" width="864" height="577" /></a><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead05.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2054"><img class= "alignleft size-full wp-image-2054" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead05.jpg" alt="Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead05" width="864" height="577" /></a><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead02.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2051"><img class= "alignleft size-full wp-image-2051" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead02.jpg" alt="Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead02" width="864" height="575" /></a></p> <p><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead13.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2061"><img class= "alignleft size-full wp-image-2061" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead13.jpg" alt="Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead13" width="864" height="577" /></a></p> <p><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead11.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2059"><img class= "alignleft size-full wp-image-2059" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead11.jpg" alt="Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead11" width="864" height="575" /></a><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead10.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2058"><img class= "alignleft size-full wp-image-2058" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead10.jpg" alt="Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead10" width="864" height="577" /></a></p> <p><a href= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead09.jpg" rel="attachment wp-att-2057"><img class= "alignleft size-full wp-image-2057" src= "http://martaonthemove.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead09.jpg" alt="Marta_on_the_Move_Carrie_Furnace_Homestead09" width="864" height="577" /></a></p> <p> </p>

Kim Lyons- Marta On The Move Episode 59
<p>Possibly one of the most interesting journalist's I have met, Kim lyons sits with me to chat about all things you would never think we would chat about.  Writing and journalism are for sure some of those things, and I also wanted to know what a typical day for her would entail.  In my mind, I watch a movie about journalists, and it is either glitz, glam, or extremely seedy.  I wanted to see what her experience was, what she thought of her work, and what is up next for her.  We chat about her interview with Barak Obama, (Yes, you read that right), working in Boston, vacationing in Cuba (our end goal), Pittsburgh six degrees of separation, non sports related subjects, stake outs, real estate in Pgh, and wishful super powers that we wished we had which always makes me happy.</p> <p>If you missed Kim's article about female podcasters in NEXTPittsburgh check it out <a href= "http://www.nextpittsburgh.com/features/pittsburghs-female-podcasters/2/">here</a> featuring yours truly!  Also stay tuned for her upcoming podcast collaboration with our gal, <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/people/Natalie-Bencivenga/14225775">Natalie Bencivenga</a> called The Broadcast!!  Support local Pgh peeps, because we rule!</p> <p>Follow Marta On The Move on <a href= "http://www.facebook.com/martaonthemove">Facebook</a>,<a href= "http://www.twitter.com/icantfindmarta"> Twitter</a>, <a href="http://www.instagram.com/marta_on_the_move">Instagram</a> and <a href="http://www.epicastnetwork.com">The Epicast Network!</a></p>

How To Travel Alone Without Being Lonely- Marta On The Move Podcast- Episode 54
<p>Hey gang! Just returned from my trip from Portugal, and it was incredible. Working on helping rebuild houses for people in need, and diving to clean up the reef is up there as one of my most rewarding trips.</p> <p>It is always scary to take that step to get out there, and have some alone time.  I wanted to make it a bit easier on everyone!  Here are some of my tips on how to travel alone, and have a great time just with yourself, or join a group of strangers and make a new friend.  I have included some websites and apps that I use while I travel. I also mentioned a great reference guide to volunteering.  This trip was inspirational for me, and I love at the end of it you will get to hear some locals chat about what they know about Pittsburgh, and what they love about Portugal!  Shout out to <a href= "http://www.impactrip.com">Impact Trip</a> for organizing the program and O Seculo (One of the best hostels I have stayed in!)  I met a ton of wonderful people, and got to experience the real Portugal.  Thank you <a href= "http://www.wingman.pt/#experiencias">Wingman</a> and Filipe for letting me come in and give a presentation at your office about my podcasting and travel experiences.  Sorry I got ill, but it was so nice meeting all of you!  Look for the interviews I did with some of you guys after this episode.</p> <p>The two other episodes will be with my hubby Phil, I went alone in the beginning of the trip, and then he met me a week later at the airport and we continued our journey. (Terribly romantic. I was holding a sign with his name on it) We use part of this podcast as a sort of journal entry for our travel lives, and hopefully share some cool tips on where to stay, eat, drink, and hang out.  Stay tuned for Where to Eat and Drink in Lisbon, and also Short Day Trips from Lisbon.  Enjoy some of my pics from the trip below including some of my awesome spackle work on the house.  #masterspackler!</p> <p>Websites and people mentioned-</p> <p><a href="http://www.wwoof.net">Woofing</a></p> <p><a href="https://www.withlocals.com">With The Locals</a></p> <p><a href="https://www.eatwith.com">Eat With</a></p> <p><a href="http://www.meetup.com">Meetup</a> /Speedfriending Lisbon</p> <p>Shout outs-</p> <p>Diogo and Rita, Maria, Luisa, Ricardo, Filipe, Pedro, Laura, Rodrigo, Gijs, Dereck, and Egidio!</p>

<p>Cathy Bruno, author of <em>The Pathway of the Chosen </em>series joins Marta On The Move!</p> <p>I am extremely into fantasy and fiction writers. I love how their minds work, and reading what spills over onto the pages.  My all time favorite author is Stephen King and favorite book series is <em>The Dark Tower.</em> Ever since reading it, I have been searching for new authors to fill the hole that any book leaves when you are that obsessed.

Not Another Hostel- Marta On The Move Podcast Episode 52
<p>So I recently just got back from my solo volunteer project in Portugal to help build houses for the homeless, and I hunkered down in my second experience staying in a Hostel.  Hostels are a hot topic in the travel world, and thanks to many horror movies that have been released featuring them, they have not gotten a good rap in some people's minds.  I am here to change people's perceptions of that.  I had an incredible time at the hostel I stayed at, and met so many interesting people while residing there.  I thought, what better way to highlight the good things about hostels, than to investigate Pittsburgh's very own!</p> <p>Introducing Jon Potter who created <a href= "http://www.notanotherhostel.org">Not Another Hostel,</a> Pittsburgh's first hostel!  I could not wait to sit down with this extremely motivated and fascinating dude.  Very much like myself, Jon wanted to bring different ideas and cultural traditions back to his hometown, and he is using his travels to influence locals.   Along with my great friend, John Schalcosky from The Odd, Mysterious, and Fascinating History of Pittsburgh, we chat with Jon about why he started his hostel, what influenced him, and what people should come to expect when thinking about choosing one on their trips.  Here is hoping to opening up a whole new world to travelers!  Keep it moving everybody!</p> <p>Marta On The Move is sponsored by Levity Pgh.  All listeners get $5 off their floats with code "Marta" <a href= "http://www.floatlevity.com">www.floatlevity.com</a></p>

Pittsburgh Retro Gaming- Marta On The Move Podcast Episode 45
<p>What am I going to say about this group that doesn't sum it up in the title. Besides the fact that they are die hard gamers, they are also the nicest and most fun people to hang out with.  I invited the administrators and creators of the group, Christopher Morgan, Brian Wissner "Wizz", Colt Dalmaso, and just for fun my great friend John Schalcosky to my house for this podcast, the guys showed up with a television and about 40 games from random systems.  I was in my heaven.  We had the best time hanging out, playing games, talking memories, and drinking beer.  I felt like a kid again, if just for an evening. The podcast only lasted about an hour, but we got to hang well into the evening after the mics turned off.  I cannot wait to have them on again soon.  Aside from our nerdy conversations about our favorite moments in retro gaming, we managed to include some really great material, and answer some questions that anyone who has any interest in playing, selling, or collecting games would want to know.  My eyes were opened even more into the world of retro games, and I don't plan on shutting them any time soon.  Please go check them out at <a href= "http://www.pittsburghretrogaming.com">Pittsburghretrogaming.com</a>, follow them on <a href="https://twitter.com/PghRetroGaming" target="_blank">Twitter</a>, <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/groups/PittsburghRetroGamingGuild/?fref=ts" target="_blank">Facebook</a>, and <a href= "https://instagram.com/pittsburgh_retro_gaming/" target= "_blank">Instagram</a></p> <p>CONTEST ALERT!!!  They are so cool they are doing a raffle for this episode!  One lucky winner will get Gauntlet Legends (One of my favs) for Nintendo 64.

Nassau, Bahamas What you need to know before you go- Marta On The Move Podcast Episode 44
<p>Phil and I just returned from our vacation in Nassau, Bahamas!  Join us as we discuss our trip!  We tell you what you need to know before you go, where to stay, what activities to do, where to eat, and most of all what we liked and did not like about the trip. Phil will dazzle you with his opening history lesson about the Bahamas. :)  You will also get to hear all about our non caged shark dive (11ft sharks all around us!!!  I posted pics below), and if you know Marta On The Move well enough by now, you know I always manage to get myself into a calamity... My poor parents.</p> <p>CALAMITY-</p> <p>: a state of deep distress or misery caused by major misfortune or loss</p> <p>ORIGIN-</p> <p>Middle English calamytey, from Latin calamitat-, calamitas; perhaps akin to Latin clades destruction<br /> First Known Use: 15th century</p> <p>You listeners get to hear about me snorkeling into an oil spew, yes you heard it right.  We chat about the pains of trying to get thick black oil washed off of your body and hair for hours on end, and also me getting rubbed down with degreaser by a man with a gold tooth.  I can't make this stuff up. It is awful what is happening on that island, and to raise awareness, I went on KDKA News Radio 1020am this past Friday with Robert Mangino and Shelley Duffy to chat about it and make others aware.  I urge everyone to go to <a href= "http://www.savethebay.com">www.savethebay.com</a> and sign the petition to stop the oil companies before they do more damage to marine wildlife.  I was in the water for 10 minutes and I was covered in oil.  I cannot imagine what the lasting effects have on our Earth.  I posted the KDKA link below as well.</p> <p>Below are some links to the places and activities we participated in, places we liked the food, and some of our pictures from the trip! I really hope I figured out how to post a video on here, so people can experience what it is like to scuba dive!  Thank you Frank Snyder for the pictures and videos! A lot of these photos do not do the Bahamas justice. The water is truly gorgeous there, let's try and keep it that way!  Please share this post to get everyone involved!!!

When will someone take up the helm and let me play the passenger.</p> <p style= "margin-top: 12px; margin-bottom: 12px; color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;"> It just so happens, a very close friend of mine, is also an "A type" personality. She is always in charge of overseeing the details.  Over drinks one evening, we came up with a brilliant idea.  Why not plan a secret vacation for one another?  It seemed like most ideas that I have when I am drinking.....  AMAZING.  We poured over the logistics of how we would achieve such a thing.  Talked until the next bottle of wine was empty.  It was a night to remember, and the ideas still sounded plausible the next morning. so we dove in.  She took the first trip to plan, and we actually leave this week.  I am clueless as to where we are going or what we are doing.  For the first time in my life, I am just along for the ride...</p> <p style= "margin-top: 12px; margin-bottom: 12px; color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;"> Want to have a secret vacation yourself?

Frick Art and Historical Society- Marta On The Move Podcast Episode 31
<p style= "margin-top: 12px; margin-bottom: 12px; color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;"> When I was young, the holidays always revolved around a certain outing, a trip to "Clayton".  Growing up in Pittsburgh, I feel a lot of people have that same experience. Touring the grounds and mansion surrounded by glittering lights and music to catch a piece of history.  Now that I am older, I started taking trips there more frequently than just the yearly snow covered journey.  Through traveling to other cities, I have gained a new appreciation for The Frick.</p> <p style= "margin-top: 12px; margin-bottom: 12px; color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;"> "Clayton" was the house built on a 5 acre plot for Henry Clay Frick and his family.  They resided there from 1882 to 1905.  They then moved to New York, but kept their home in Pittsburgh.  Phil and I recently visited their New York home, and even though the art collection is quite amazing, we found ourselves finding a new respect and love for "Clayton" in Pittsburgh.  The main reason, being is that it is private, and intimate, showing you a life almost stopped in time.  All their original belongings are present, not something that was placed in the space to fill a gape from that time period.  They were all personal to the Frick family, and being able to view their everyday objects in their house is something you will appreciate when you visit other historical homes that have reproductions, or borrowed antiques.  Also, I am not even touching on the car collection, which is indeed staggering. The main reason I wanted to feature them on my podcast is that The Frick Art and Historical Center is doing more than just maintaining the Frick's belongings, they are evolving with the times.  Offering more exhibits, education, and entertainment for their visitors. Their Fridays at the Frick has me so excited!  Tune in to hear the news about the history, and upcoming events happening at "<a href= "http://www.thefrickpittsburgh.org/index.php">The Frick</a>".</p> <p style= "margin-top: 12px; margin-bottom: 12px; color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;"> Tune into Marta On The Move on iTunes, <a href= "http://www.twitter.com/icantfindmarta">Twitter</a>, <a href= "http://www.facebook.com/martaonthemove">Facebook</a> and on the <a href="http://www.epicastnetwork.com">Epicast Network!</a></p> <p style= "margin-top: 12px; margin-bottom: 12px; color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;">  </p> <p style= "margin-top: 12px; margin-bottom: 12px; color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;"> Don't forget with Puzzle Pax if you use the code MOVE when you check out you get $5 off your purchase!

<p style= "margin-top: 12px; margin-bottom: 12px; color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;"> Marta On The Move visits with local Hollywood Special Effects Legend Tom Savini.</p> <p style= "margin-top: 12px; margin-bottom: 12px; color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;"> In Pittsburgh, PA, on an unassuming street lives a legend in the film industry.  I got the pleasure of visiting Tom Savini in his house here in Bloomfield.  I just left from there, and I am still reeling at what I saw.  He may be the largest collector of casts, busts (his own and others), and various other collectibles.  I fawned over two busts of Tim Curry's devil character from the movie <em>Legend</em>, made by one of his students Darren Holt from Tom Savini's <a href= "http://www.dec.edu/ts/">Special Make-Up Effects Program.</a> located in Monesson, Pa. I passed by the sword that beheaded Sean Bean in <em>The Game Of Thromes</em> series.  Brad Pitt's helmet from <em>Troy</em>, assorted death masks from Clark Cable, to David Bowie.  I casually strolled by a life size version of the Terminator, or Val Kilmer as Batman.  In the middle all of these collections, is Tom Savini, wandering the house his father built, giving me the grand tour.</p> <p style= "margin-top: 12px; margin-bottom: 12px; color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;"> The only man in Hollywood who can claim the titles of director, stuntman, make up artist, and actor, Tom Savini is a whirlwind of talent, that we in Pittsburgh are lucky to call ours.  You have seen his work everywhere, whether you know it or not.  Remember Jason from <em>Friday the 13th</em>? His creation.  Any number of zombies in <em>Dawn of the Dead</em>, along with hundreds of others, including the monster from <em>Creepshow.</em> (Which I walked by and nearly jumped at how real it looked)  In front of the camera he has starred in various films from <em>Dawn of the Dead</em>, <em>From Dusk Til Dawn,</em> <em>Perks of Being a Wallflower, Django Unchained,</em> and is the only person I have ever met to be a character on <em>The Simpsons.</em>  Even with all this under his belt, he is extremely personable, and humble, taking the time to stop and show me tons of things I asked about.  (Including the life size version of the<em> Creature from the Black Lagoon</em> in his backyard)</p> <p style= "margin-top: 12px; margin-bottom: 12px; color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;"> I originally met Tom at a convention, and casually asked him if he would do a plug for my show, he responded with "Sure! I can even be on the show if you want"  Not believing he meant it, I was shocked when he scheduled a phone podcast with me, and took the time to allow me to come to his house/studio to shoot some pictures.  Listen below for the episode, and keep an eye out for another one released when his documentary <em>Smoke and Mirrors: The Story of Tom Savini</em> hits closer to Halloween.   Thanks again Tom!</p> <p style= "margin-top: 12px; margin-bottom: 12px; color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;"> Follow Marta On The Move on Twitter @Icantfindmarta, Facebook, Epicast Network.</p>

Escape Room Pittsburgh- Marta On The Move Podcast Episode 20
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><strong>I grew up <em>loving</em> puzzles and games, and I still do. When I heard about an interactive puzzle in Pittsburgh, I had to have the owners on the show.  Well, first I had to go through the puzzle to see if my group could beat it. I love picking up different things to do in cities while I travel, the stranger the better.  Joe and Cory Deasy found something similar in Budapest, and brought the idea back here to Pittsburgh.  Ahh the glory of traveling!  Now their idea has taken hold, and is becoming THE spot for friends and family to challege themselves against the clock, to beat the Prison, and the Laboratory in under 60 minutes.  Imagine you start off handcuffed. That is all I am telling you. Tune in, and hear more about what their plans are,and how they came up with this amazing idea, as walk you through <em>ESCAPE ROOM PGH.</em></strong>  <strong>I can't wait to try another one soon!!!</strong></span></p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p>

Thomas Sweterlitsch- Marta On The Move Podcast Episode 19
<p><span style= "color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;"> Tom is a very interesting local author who wrote the novel Tomorrow and Tomorrow.   I was so lucky to have him on the show to chat about his method for writing, and some of his upcoming projects.  He was so kind to sit in on my book club, and answer questions about the book.  Being able to pick an author's brain is a very amazing thing.  Seeing how they worked out the writing, the characters and plot, and put everything together.  It blows my mind.  I hope you enjoy, and I hope you pick up a copy for yourself as well. You can get a copy of his book below, and he is also coming out with a new cover for it in May.  The image is below as well.</span></p> <p><iframe style="width:120px;height:240px;" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" src="//ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=qf_sp_asin_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=maronthemov04-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=0399167498&asins=0399167498&linkId=KAHOYJ2BMWC2ROSF&show_border=true&link_opens_in_new_window=true"></p> <p></iframe></p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p>

Stentor Danielson- Marta On The Move Podcast Episode 18
<p>I am a huge fan of boardgames.  My ideal evening involves hanging out with close friends, having some snacks, wine, good conversation, and playing boardgames.  Most people I admit to this, look at me like I have been stunted at age 10. (Which actually may be true)  They hear boardgames and they think the standards, Monopoly, Trivia Pursuit, Life...  All of which i personally hate, by the way.  Monopoly- the game in which you end up despising your friends and family, the deal making game.  Trivia Pursuit- Pop Quiz asshole!  What you don't remember some history tidbit from Bystantine Period?  The game designed to make you feel stupid.  Life-  See what job you should have had?  Come on?  You don't have 8 children and an aspiring career as a hedge fund manager?  FAILURE.</p> <p> </p> <p>Games are no longer what you pull out at awkard family ggatherings to pass the time away.  They are events, social communication connections, brain builders, creative outlets.  I wanted to feature different games on this podcast to show off not only that there are new games out there for everyone, but also that our city has people developing games that are inspriing, creative, and fun.  I wanted to showcase those people, in the hopes that you yourself will check out their games, and buy one, play one, and also find your love of games bloom.  There is something for everyone out there.</p> <p> </p> <p>My first feature is game designer Stentor Danielson.  Besides having the coolest name ever, he creates games, and also draws maps that resemble Middle Earth, but in local settings.  Ever seen the one he did of Pittsburgh?  Yeah, that was him, as if I didn't have reason enough to want to talk to him, he throws in these gorgeous maps.  He does custom work, and other places around the world.  We will chat about how he got into making them and about his game Money, Bunny, Gunny, which I played last time we got to hang out.  Easy to play and fun to boot. Hope you enjoy! Support local people!  Also, sorry about recording as podcast #17!</p>

<p><span style= "color: #777777; font-family: Cabin, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 20px;"> Mike is one of my favorite bartenders in Pittsburgh.  I proposed to him to do a series of podcasts featuring his advice on making craft cocktails, and vintage cocktails that people at home can learn from. He gives great advice on techniques, tips and tricks that will for sure step up your entertaining game. This is the longest podcast I have recorded even after editing, just because we had a ton to chat about, and had a blast talking. We will be doing a series of these, so stay tuned for the next podcast with him, which will be featuring holiday cocktails. I enjoyed it so much, and I hope you do too! You can find Mike and his awesome bartender skills at Butcher in the Rye, or Meat and Potatoes. I highly suggest you give him a visit.</span></p>
