    Hi, Granger. I'd like to suggest that you change your setup so that you and your guest are sitting across the table from each other. You can still angle your chairs a bit toward the camera, and it'll feel more like a natural conversation. The side-by-side looks weird and uncomfortable. Anyway, just a suggestion based on my opinion, and only meant to help.

    Love this pod cast with you and Chris. When you played at Higher Ground in Burlington Vt back in Oct of 2015 I got to meet Chris. My daughter and I had a great conversation with Chris well waiting for our turn to get on your tour bus for our meet and greet even got our picture with him. Loved getting to talk with him such a great guy. It was just as cool to meet Chris as it was to meet you. That was my favorite meet and greet being able to get on the bus. I can't wait until I can see you again. I was looking forward to the August show in Malone Ny even had my meet and greets but it got cancelled. Hope to see you soon I miss concerts. Chris love your ALgone channel love your humor. I will keep watching as long as you keep making them. Would love to hear more stories with you and Chris.

  • 42invincible

    Hi Granger, please don’t take this the wrong way but to totally dismiss the ‘new normal’ rejects the idea that everyday and every event changes your life. For example after WW2 where millions died and many families were impacted they could never return to ‘normal’ when it ended. Children had lost fathers and wives husbands, most moved on and married again and some didn’t. Either way it was in effect a ‘new normal’ as they could not get back what they lost. On the other hand where a soldier returned back to his loved ones he had a chance to return to a form of ‘normal’ if he could weave his way through his PTSD. So I guess what I am suggesting is that any form of ‘normal’ depends on the circumstance the person is in post a major event, we cannot and should not expect everyone to return to ‘normal’ (pre event status) if the event in and of itself has dramatically changed one’s life. Just a thought.

    • 42invincible

      Carolyn Fulton - thank you for your view and feedback, totally get where you are coming from. It’s good to have a positive discussion rather than just the typical I’m right / your wrong you get on some channels 🙏🏻

    • Carolyn Fulton
      Carolyn Fulton

      42invincible what you may want to refer to as ‘new normal’ is what most of us would refer to as ‘adjusting to what life brings’. We lose things, people, circumstances change and we adjust or go crazy. Some of just chose adjust to what comes-not dismiss what was and adapt a ‘new normal! Call it what YOU want. The rest of us won’t refer to it that way. 🤷‍♀️

    • 42invincible

      Hobo Life - Hi Hobo Life, totally understand what you are saying here re society rather than the individual but maybe everyone of us added together is the society. I guess where I was coming from is that every day I wake up becomes a ‘new normal’ as I cannot replicate yesterday. I know it’s just words and each of us use words to have different meanings. I am totally sure that Granger was trying to express a want to have a time in life pre C19 that was more positive than the one we have today and to get people to mentally envisage this so we stay positive (which we should).

      You're mistaking what he said, he is speaking in terms of society as a whole and you are speaking of individuals

You surround yourself with great people, and that has helped make you and your brand very successful.....along with your raw talent and humble, and great personality!
