Good Eye Podcast – Jonah and Natalie – Cyclist Safety and Awareness

Jonah Holland was struck and killed by a drunk driver last Saturday, August 13 while cycling along Osbourne Turnpike near Richmond.  She was cycling with Natalie Rainer who was also struck and remains hospitalized.  Jonah was an avid cyclist and swimmer and a member of numerous community organizations as is Natalie.

At the time of release of this podcast there are several ways to help.  A “Take Them A Meal” page has been set up for Jonah’s family, but states that the schedule is full.  You can contact the organizer for other ways to help.

Meals for John, Josie and Grayson Holland

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with Natalie’s expenses and hospital bills which will be significant.

Activate! on WRIR 4-14-22 (filling in for Mike Rutz)

Mike Rutz’s show Activate! on WRIR is known around the station as one of the most challenging shows to do, especially since you’re sitting in for Mike who does it every week.  He’s used to it.  It’s an audio music calendar featuring music from bands and artists who will be playing in the Richmond area over the next week.  So you have to do a lot of research for it in a short amount of time and also find music to play which should represent the artists appropriately.  Do you play the new single?  Or do you play an old favorite?  What do you play by local artists who listeners may or may not know?  It’s fun, but you want to do it justice.

I sat in for Mike on Thursday and even though it’s a relief to find plenty of music to play and plenty of live dates to promote, there is always so much more that you could play and highlight.  And that speaks highly of Richmond’s live music scene which is pretty cool.
