S2 E2: The Maltese Falcon convo with RJ Rowley

S2 E2: The Maltese Falcon convo with RJ Rowley

This is season 2, episode 2, released on February 19, 2021. The first segment of today’s episode was recorded on February 3, 2021, the second segment was recorded on February 15, 2021.

Today I’m sharing a fun conversation I had with local writer and comedienne, RJ Rowley, a joker of all trades who captures life’s absurdities on the page and keeps them there until the proper authorities arrive. A Colorado native, Rowley writes cooking-memoirs for kicks when composing humorous fiction and satirical guides gets too grim. Outside of her library of books, past publications include satirical articles, short works of fiction, and random acts of poetry. When not entertaining the masses or terrorizing the villagers, Rowley is an entreprehumorist who leads the Bexly empire to promote humor writing and create a supportive community for fellow jesters.

On today’s show, RJ Rowley and I talk books and music, Casa Bonita, obviously, and then we do a deep dive into the 1941 noir crime fiction film, The Maltese Falcon. You’re gonna love it.

After my call with RJ Rowley, I will talk about mental health hacks with my favorite Lakewood-based health coach specializing in behavior change, Jennie Page.

Anyone who dabbles in lots of projects (like I do) can understand the messiness of the creative process. Sometimes you want to make creative changes, sometimes your computer stops working, sometimes you burn yourself out on season 1 with weekly episodes and way too much editing and have to pare down in order to keep going. Truth be told, season 2 of the Casa Bonita Podcast is stylistically informed by all of these factors. This season will have some different sounds and vibes than what listeners of season 1 have grown accustomed to.

Throughout Season 2 of the podcast, my awesome, smart, funny guests help me reimagine some of our favorite movies as if they were set in greater Denver. Episodes will drop every other Friday. I had to stop releasing episodes every week, you guys, because this is not how I actually make money and I needed to slow the production pace.

Speaking of money, the way I do actually make money is as a real estate broker and co-owner of Bluebird Real Estate Group, a boutique residential real estate brokerage serving the entire Denver/Boulder areas, with Offices in Lakewood and Longmont. I am the employing broker and I’ve been working in real estate for over 8 years! Bluebird is made up of 4 kick-ass agents and you can find us online at We are a growing brokerage, currently accepting experienced agents who want local support, competitive splits, and zero kool-aid.
