Author Mark Tullius speaks his mind and shares his writing: Horror, Sci-fi, Suspense, and nonfiction MMA.


My special guest is Evan Scott, the drummer from the Boston-based death metal band Stone the Oracle.

I first met Evan 9 years ago when I interviewed him for Unlocking the Cage at Lauzon MMA and I've had the pleasure of training with him a few times since.

In this episode we talk about what he has gained from martial arts, what a positive gym culture they have at Lauzon's where he is a kickboxing instructor, how he developed a love for music and became part of Stone the Oracle.

I had a fantastic conversation with Scott Gazzoli, the host of the popular podcast Causing the Effect. Scott's podcast is focused on the true exploration of your mind and body and it was a blast picking his brain. In our talk, he offers advice to help me with my meditation and exercise struggles, we discuss our cannabis and psychedelic use, love for heavy metal, rage issues, and much more.

I'm nearly finished with putting up a video a day about a heavy metal band for my month of metal playlist. I've enjoyed doing it but it has been more work than anticipated.

The Try Not to Die: In the Pandemic contest is wrapping up and the ebook is about to release. I managed to screw up the pre-order on Amazon but hopefully you guys will help me share the book to regain momentum.

Almost finished writing "Stuffed." I plan on releasing that along with "The Rules" and "31 Others" for a small audiobook/ebook just in time for Thanksgiving.

I had a great time being a guest on the Playing Injured podcast and am looking forward to having Josh Dillingham, the co-host, on this podcast soon.
