D.I.Y. Rock Star Round Up (August 2022)

This post loosely accompanies Gab & Jam, episodes 242-245.

We’re taking an August break, but we DIDN'T want to leave you hanging. That’s why we invite you to check out these episodes—and videos!—on topics you may have missed:

1. Unboxings

(We've shared two new ones this past week; http://bit.ly/unboxingsyoutube )

These videos, collectively, are the closest thing we’ve ever had to a studio tour. So, if you’re interested in seeing what’s in our studio, check out our unboxing videos.

2. Travel adventures

Here's to your adventure: https://bit.ly/travelplaylistvids ; https://bit.ly/sxsw2019playlist )

If you’d like to see some of the places that we’ve talked about over the years—Toronto, Nashville, South By Southwest, GearFest, Chicago—we have videos for all of our travels in the last few years. We can’t even do these places justice by talking about them, so we suggest that you take a few minutes—or half a day—to go check out what we do when we get to these awesome places.

3. Health and Wellness (for the D.I.Y. Rock Star)

Series of health and wellness advice: https://bit.ly/blogmas2021playlist )
