Lindsey Thompson

This episode was recorded on February 13, 2017, on WPRK FM. Listen to the whole conversation in the player above, or click on the links below to go to a specific segment of the show!

I don’t always know the guest before they come on the show. That usually works out fine, and sometimes we’re ready for some good banter from moment one. This was the case with Lindsey Thompson.

Along with running things by the seat of our pants (for her, Lemon Hearted, for me, everything), I look like her brother, we both have weak hearts, and Björk.

I mean, Björk. That umlaut is the best, and her music is great as well. And Lindsey is big into Björk, thanks to a high school friend who may have been a ghost. I too care for Björk, although no ghost was necessary.

Usually the interviewer, she travels the Orlando countryside talking to jewelry makers, retailers, bakers, and a lot of other locals to get the scoop on how they do what they do. And now you can learn how Lindsey does what she does.

Just make sure to give her credit for inspiring you to follow your passion.
