5 - Letting it Flow w/ Sports Videographer & Knowledge-Dropper, Clem Harrod

When it’s flowing, sometimes you just gotta let it flow...

That’s exactly how I’d describe this impromptu productivity coaching/interview/hangout session, whatever you want to call it, with Sports Videographer, Projectionist, husband, father and friend, Clem Harrod.

"Some of the things you seem to be looking for you can get right here." -Clem Harrod

Hopefully, you’ve had the opportunity to listen to the first four episodes of Make it Snappy and this one’s No. 5 for you.  As such, you’re probably familiar with that SMOOTH, milky voice you first hear when you click, “play.” 

You know, the one who asks me “how I get it all done…,” on the intro track to every episode, right before our voice artist, Jasmin Johnson (props) introduces the show! 

Well, that super-smooth voice is that of the ONE and ONLY, Mr. Clem Harrod...

It was late on a Thursday night; I grabbed my little “portable studio” and headed over to Clem’s crib (aka, his “man cave”) to do the recording for the intro of Make it Snappy.  We got everything setup and found ourselves goofing around on the microphones and liked where it was all going; so we kept rolling! 

We actually recorded this ENTIRE episode before we even did any work on the intro!

I had a great time having this conversation with Clem, and in fact, we’re making plans to do a follow-up session ON-AIR sometime in the next quarter! 

I wouldn’t call it a straight-up coaching session; it’s definitely blended with interview-style questions, inward reflections on both our parts, and some really good “life discussion” on being a husband and father in this day and age.

I know you’ll enjoy this interview/coaching session/laid-back man-cave experience I had the pleasure of participating in, with Clem Harrod.
