Pete Brown Says is a work of creative nonfiction audio written and produced by me, Pete Brown. I am a GenXer in Central Ohio, and in this podcast, I'm trying to shares some stories that some have found to be pretty good.
These are stories that I have been waiting to tell, and I hope you will find them well-told. They are the stories that never quite fit in a novel or screenplay or short story, but instead cast about for years until the right medium came along. I think podcasting is that medium, and hope you find in these tales something to love.
Pretty good stories. Told by Pete.
Here's what you need to know about me:
I've just entered my late 40s. I've been married for 23 years and am currently raising two teenagers in a leafy suburb of Columbus, Ohio. You will likely hear the voices of my wife and kids in various episodes. The pace of our lives doesn't offer up much free time, but when it does, I like riding motorcycles, writing, painting, and making podcasts. I don't read like I used to, and I'm always saying I'll get back to it. Making these episodes has been my main free-time activity for the past year.
Stuff I Do or Have Done
In my day job I'm a creative director for a small-but-feisty agency in Columbus. I also host the Mindset Digital podcast, which is more or less about the digital communications revolution.
I host a weekly panel sports podcast called Sports Wednesday, which is billed as sports talk for the medium fan. It's fun and often silly.
In my career, I've been a Peace Corps Volunteer, a reporter (both politics and sports), an editor (sports), a technical writer, a television writer, a director and a video game narrative designer.
