This interview happened in the gallery right after I interviewed Kelly for my podcast (episode found here).

More on the Blame it on Buffett Podcast

A podcast about Jimmy Buffett, Parrot Heads, Trop Rock, and all things escapism adjacent!

I had a great time chatting with Mark because not only did we talk about Key West and his awesome Backyards of Key West Instagram account and podcast, we also kind of geeked out about podcasting and marketing. I hope that if you have ever been on the fence about starting that podcast or other creative project, that this episode will inspire you!
