We’re breaking some new ground with the podcast this week! Thus far when we’ve had guests on the podcast they’ve been in a healthcare related field. But this week longtime music industry veteran Vinny Rich stopped by King Chiropractic and we knew we had to have him on the podcast. We ask Vinny all about the music business, artists he’s worked with, and get some really good advice on being an artist in 2018. Beyond that we also managed to cover topics like why you shouldn’t exercise to lose weight, why running is the worst way to get fit, and more crazy topics that come up in the office during a visit.
A special thank you to Vinny Rich for sitting in on this week’s podcast and we hope to have him back on another one in the future!
