How Goods This.

Allen Stone and Julian Gavilanes

World touring musician Allen Stone, his right-hand road dawg Steven J. Libby, and their favorite NYC actor Julian Gavilanes...are together again! As all three try to navigate their post-pandemic cancelled careers, they’re finding a silver lining in the laughter they can still share.

From hysterical talks with each other about their outrageous friendships, to talking with guests from various walks of life, to their endless fascination with existence and how we each chose to pursue it—it all fuels them. “How Good’s This” is a reminder for all of us to check in with ourselves once in a while and recognize the beauty right in front of us. So if you’ve been struggling to see it, tune in here and get your fix!

    39:38

    This is the season finale, friends! The boys are taking an intentional break for a little bit of time to refocus their efforts around what they’re trying to do.

This is not a farewell episode. It’s a see you soon. Better than how we left you too. Thanks for supporting us and sticking with it. We love you.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

    EP.59 - Prove It

    1:10:16

    The boys break down their relationships to dogs and the responsibility it requires that they could go with and or without. Criticism and how their friendship has reached a point where they aren’t afraid to give it to each other, despite their non-confrontational ways. Steve’s incoming CPAP machine and how f%@*ed up it is that he hasn’t slept in 28 years. Their relationships with money and the financial confidence in cultivating wealth that they have developed since the pandemic. Allen sings and beat boxes, Steve goes unconscious and Julian is wondering how much it's going to take to prove himself to himself. This is the second to last episode before we take our season break. But don't worry. We'll keep you satiated with fun content and come back stronger than we've ever been. Season two is going to have all sorts of fun surprises!Proud sponsors of Ladder Coffee.

    EP.58 - This is Shocking!

    1:13:30

    On this weeks episode the boys are bringing more good news to make you smile. From the oldest woman dead-lifter, who can more lift than we can, and is also 100 years old, to baby geniuses and somehow a fascination with Peter Dinklage's package. They also share stories of the most shocking thing they've ever witnessed. Above all else, they're laughing their asses off at each other and having a blast getting to catch up with each other.

    EP.57 - Shifting the Vibe

    1:16:50

    After a year of absolute nonsense, with the exception of a few profound conversations with each other and others about anything and everything, the boys are just now realizing that they should be more specific about what this podcast is even meant to represent. "How Goods This" is a simple phrase that's pretty easy to understand, but until now, we haven't really uncovered "what's good?" So, as they move forward with the same non-scripted, ridiculously honest, funny but never fact-checked talks, they'll be bringing some positive news segments to the mix. Every episode will surround a couple/few pieces of "good news" whether personal or out in the world that the boys can anchor their conversations with. It'll keep them on track, give you something to rely on every week, and bring forth an approach to add more joy into your life each Monday. This week, Allen talks about his experience playing at The Gorge Amphitheater with Dave Matthews on Labor Day weekend. How two of Daves band mates got Covid-19 and how they pivoted like pros and pulled off an exceptional show despite it all. A girl who just earned $20k for listing a uniquely puffed Dorito on Ebay, the partnership Advanced Auto Parts made with the Denver Police, and Quentin Quarantino: an internet meme'r turned social justice warrior. And that's just the beginning. The boys deep dive as usual and share their own experiences through it all. Proud sponsors of Ladder Coffee.

    EP.56 - Augie Bello: The Boy Wonder

    1:17:00

    Augie is not your typical 22 year old kid. He is also not just another saxophone player. I think we might call him a virtuoso. He won't say that about himself, but this young man possesses the talent, work ethic and brain to take himself as far as he's willing to go. And he's got a lot of goals, so watch out! As a New York native, Augie grew up following in his grandfathers footsteps of being a professional musician. Playing since the tender age of 4 years old, he latched on to every lesson and piece of encouragement he received until he was writing his own playbook. He recently graduated from The New School and hit the ground running. He's created his own unique style of playing and released several records of his own, he's recorded for multiple artists including Teddy Swims and Austin Kolby. But most recently, he's been on the road with our favorite boy, Teddy Swims. They've been opening for The Zac Brown Band and playing arenas all over the country, stealing the hearts of everyone. With a little bit of time off, Augie has shared himself with us to talk about the awesome parts about being a professional musician as well as all the really difficult realities that people neglect to think about when getting into this profession. His humility and curiosity to learn more and grow are unmatched and we are so happy to introduce you to this, soon to be household name. Hear his music here and follow his Instagram below. you wont be disappointed. https://open.spotify.com/artist/2z3k87BRV59rw56PwnOQsg?si=vHybBCXlQRiwlT7P7fHQVA&dl_branch=1Proud sponsors of Ladder Coffee.

    EP.55 - The Band is Back!

    1:12:55

    Who's ready for a celebration? All the boys are back and getting settled into the old studio space. Although Jules is still in New York, Uncle Al and Stevie-Baby are reunited and it feels so good! And no longer will Steve be out of the room again. The boys have some new things coming up soon, so make sure you stay tuned. In this episode the boys are diving into all the subjects. From ancient Greek civilizations that were completely matriarchal and enslaving their men, to India's new ban on single use plastics. They each share their own experience with being eco-conscious. They discuss who exists in the "globally recognized" category and what makes them become a part of a universal culture like that. Julian shares the story of how he got to work with Morgan Freeman and having one of his coolest acting moments of all time. And they land on growth and how the more they accomplish the more they expect themselves to accomplish. living with this blessing and curse, these dudes are curious as to why that is. So plug in and let's all hang out! Laugh, love, and remember that life is short, so let's have fun. How Goods this?Proud sponsors of Ladder Coffee.

    EP.54 - The Currency of Cool.

    1:11:33

    After a few weeks of being gone, Allen is back with his right hand road dog, and they're diving right in! Although they're missing Stevie-Baby, the boys get into an interesting discussion about the weight of social awareness. The importance of the "give and take" in social interactions and how developing a strong personality is more valuable than any other skillset. They talk about the illusion of perception and how fascinating it is that we all can experience the same thing differently. And then they get into the necessity of belly laughing and the evolution of laughter. Is it a learned behavior or is it inherent in all of us? Don't count on these guys for the answers, but enjoy the fun banter between these besties here. Proud sponsors of Ladder Coffee.

    EP.53 - Find Your Tribe w/ Styles Bentley

    1:29:04

    Styles Bentley, AKA The Sultan of Silliness, AKA Quarter Inch, AKA Chapus King AKA Brent Loya is finally here! It's been a long time coming, but Julian finally got to sit down with his best friend--the man responsible for being one of the biggest influences in these boys lives. Having grown up with Julian from elementary school to now, the two reflect on their youth and how incredible it was that they didn't wind up in jail or die. Now, a married man, and a father of three beautiful little girls, they can start to connect all the dots. From Indian Guides, to establishing the lifestyle brand, "Chapus Wu," to smuggling ounces of marijuana into Young Life camp, to exploring sex, drugs, rock and roll and taking turns humping the jets of their parents hot tubs, there's not enough bandwidth to cover a podcast long enough for these fellas to express their outlandish experience together. Overall, they realize that none of them would be who they are if it weren't for the tribe they continue to be so privileged to be a part of. And they encourage everyone to keep searching for their own. It makes all the difference in the world. And everything else is secondary.On top of being on of the most hilarious and creative people we know, Brent is now an advocate and activist for the global climate crisis and you can check him out at www.stylesbentley.com as well as in the links below.

    EP. 52 - A Re-Cycle Around the Sun!

    1:15:49

    It’s the official year anniversary since we released our first episode! Welcome to the 52nd conversation we have somehow managed to release to the world consistently for an entire year. Thanks for being here with us! Unfortunately, (for Allen) he couldn’t make it once again. He’s traveling back from Australia after a big week of shows. He'll be back with us next week. Instead, Stevie-Baby and Julian brought their counterparts on—Laura Jawer and Stephanie Fleck. Laura tour managed for Allen a long time ago and has traveled the globe with him, slangin' merch and giving smiles! She’s also Steve’s better half. Stephanie is Julian’s platonic life-partner and roommate in NY. Also the designer and creator of a lot of Allen’s merch you see out on the road. She has her own sustainable, up-cycled, eco-conscious clothing and goods line called, "Grandmother Goods." These are best friends being best friends.Steph talks to us about making an effort to be less wasteful. Through her business and her lifestyle, she’s trying to set an example for all of us to follow. And if she’s been able to get Julian on board, she’s not putting up with your excuses. Follow her on instagram @grandmothergoods and if you happen to be in NYC, go pay her a visit at Artist and Fleas in Williamsburg or anywhere else she has her markets. Tune in and laugh along with these besties! And reach out to your friends if you haven’t done so lately. It makes a big difference. We miss you Al. See you next week.Proud sponsors of Ladder Coffee.

    EP.51 - Stephanie Powers is Back!

    1:44:37

    Remember Stephanie Powers from episode 25? Allen and Julian sat down with her and got to know the Lightworker herself. Stephanie is an astrologer, an entrepreneur, an explorer of the soul and a podcaster, just to name a few things. She hosts Light Workers Lounge--a podcast that explores the human experience through all of its spiritual ups and downs. She's incredibly raw and open and had an incredible point of view about the world. Julian was abandoned by his best pals this week, so he decided to bring her back and have her do an astrological birth chart reading. It's a pretty heavy conversation at times, but all with the intention of breaking through the walls we sometimes don't know how to climb over. Stephanie brings up a lot of relatable topics through the reading and Julian does his best to expose what's in his heart as honestly and forthcoming as he can. It's a beautifully human conversation that I hope you can all glean something from. If you feel inspired and want to get a reading done with Stephanie, shoot her an email at spowers@lightworkers-lounge.com. We highly encourage you to reach out and support this wonderful woman. And who knows what you might discover? Proud sponsors of Ladder Coffee.
