  • Today we close out the pod with a song from a truly unique and multi-talented individual. Originally from Detroit, he played football (yes the American style) for the LSU Tigers and won a national championship there. He played in the NFL for eight seasons, and at the suggestion of his head coach began playing guitar. He has made Austin home and has become a sensational new and creative musical force embraced by fans and critics alike. Did we mention he is a legit standup comedian as well? We are talking about the amazing Joe Barksdale! Explore his latest creative endeavor called The Kyber Tapes, an inspirational and magical journey inspired by the Star Wars universe. To learn more, visit joebarksdale.com or @jbdale72 on the socials. This song is from Joe’s first album and is titled “Moonbeam”; we hope you enjoy it.
