New Mexicast TV

Hello Friends, Long time no post! So much has happened since I last posted a video here on NewMexicast.com that I couldn't possibly bring you all up to speed in one simple post. But let me at least give you the biggest news... New Mexicast is now a weekly TV show! For the past 8 months or so I have been working on putting together a half hour TV show which airs weekly in Albuquerque. Now, after successfully completing Season 1 (13 episodes) I finally have a moment to pay some attention to my dear, neglected website and my most…

NM0025 – Navajo Mission

- New Mexico's most Enchanting Video Podcast visits the Navajo Reservation east of Gallup this week. Even though I've been spending half my time in Gallup, and driving right past Smith Lake every other week, I have a Chicagoan to thank for this episode: my Mom, Barb. One of her longtime friends, Teresa Adams, mentioned that she was heading to New Mexico. When my Mom told me Teresa was coming to the Land of Enchantment my reporter's brain immediately asked, "What for?" Glad I asked. Teresa was one of 15 volunteers from a church in West Virginia who came to…

BALANCING ACT - As many of you know, New Mexico's most enchanting video podcast is also an occasional audio podcast. This week's audio episode is all about finding balance. Balance between time at home and time for work; between taking the girls with me on a shoot so they can share in the experience and getting the best story possible; and so on. This search for balance is the story of my life, really. Now that I know that the majority of you would like to hear an occasional audio episode (based on the poll we did that showed about…

AUDIO EXPERIMENT - New Mexico's most Enchanting Video Podcast is now an audio podcast too! Well, at least for this week. As the title suggests, I am just experimenting with an audio episode of New Mexicast to see what my viewers/subscribers think. Take a listen and let me know what you think by posting a comment here on the website or by sending me an email at RLR@NewMexicast.com If you hate it, tell me so. If you think it's a nice addition for the off-weeks, tell me that too. Bottom line is I will keep doing them if more people…

NM0017 – Kristallnacht

- Hello Friends and Happy Valentine's week! As promised, this is part three of a four part series on Holocaust survivor Gabrielle Falk and her family. Specifically, this episode focuses on Gabrielle and her parents during the war. The title comes from a night of violence inflicted on Germany's Jewish community Novemer 9 - 10, 1938, known as Kristallnacht. I will be honest in telling you this was the toughest episode I've done yet. Not only is the subject matter disturbing (maybe it's appropriate that I'm posting it on Friday the 13th!), but it was also a challenge to find…

NM0016 – Holocaust Survivor

- Hello Friends! Long time no post. Sorry about that. With the holidays and so many other things going on (see the episode for more details), I needed more time to put this one together. Not to mention this is definitely one of the hardest stories (emotionally and logistically) that I've put together so far here on New Mexicast. What started as a simple recording session to document one woman's life's story as a favor to her family has turned into a three part (or maybe more... who knows?) series. After all, how does one tell the story of someone's…

NM0015 – Hiatus

- Happy New Year my dear friends & family! I must begin this new year with an apology. Sorry that I haven't posted an episode (or an explanation) in several weeks. As with so many other families during the holiday season, we had too many commitments and not enough time. In fact, I am typing this from my parent's house in Chicago while the girls (and their cousins) are napping upstairs. I hope you will all understand that this is not a case of "podfading" (the term for podcasts that suddenly disappear into the twilight). The next episode of New…

NM0014 – Family Historian

- Hello Friends! Have you ever undertaken a project that you were excited about only to wonder if you are out of your league? Well, this week's story is like that for me. In fact, the story is so important that I have decided to turn it into a two part series (which has never been done before here on New Mexicast). So this week's episode is part one. It is about an amazing man named Stephen Falk. He has made it his personal mission to research his family tree and to preserve what he can after so much damage…

NM0013 – Stocking Stuffers

- Hello friends and happy Thanksgiving! It is the time of year where our thoughts turn to family, friends and opening our hearts. You know I never ask for anything from you all (Other than watching every episode, subscribing to and spreading the word about New Mexicast, posting comments and taking a survey... okay, so I do ask a lot of you! LOL!) but I thought I would put an appeal out there to help a great cause this holiday season. One year ago this month, we lost my dear father-in-law, Dr. Sam Goldfein. Because he was always dedicated to…

NM0012 – Pinto Bean Fiesta

- Hello Friends! I hope you are all enjoying the change of weather as much as we are. We recently traveled to Binghamton, New York where the leaves were changing brillant shades of yellow, orange and red. Back here in New Mexico we have been enjoying pinon picking (pine nuts) and lots of sunshine one day and snow the next. This week's episode comes to you a month late (since I forgot to hit "publish" and it never was posted last month) and after¬†plenty¬†of technical mistakes on my part. While on vacation in Puerto Penasco, Mexico my husband graciously shot…

NM0010 – Balloon Fiesta

- Hello Friends! This week I am happy to share with you one of the reasons I fell in love with New Mexico more than 10 years ago; The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. It is an annual tradition unlike anything I have ever seen. As waves of hot air balloons take flight (more than 700 in all!) spectators get to walk among them. It is a beautiful experience for people of all ages. For more information about the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, visit www.BalloonFiesta.com Now I would like to ask for feedback from all of you wonderful viewers. Recently a…
