I’m delighted to welcome Bob Schneider back on the show for the second time. Bob is a singer, songwriter, podcaster, visual artist and all-round legend from Texas.
We catch up on current events, Bob’s upcoming album, the TV shows we’ve seen, and of course food. Bob has me cracking up all the way through, and he answers some questions that fans have sent in. It’s fair to say you guys sent a few really funny ones!
The truth is Bob is one of my favourite guests to have on the podcast. Talking to him feels like talking to an old friend, so I think you’re all going to enjoy this episode!
“I like not traveling, I like not being on the road. I love my life, I love being here writing songs and hanging out with my family. I love playing in front of people but that’s 90 minutes of the day. So except for Covid, I’ve loved staying at home.” – Bob Schneider
