Fireside Chats: The Bizarre Life of Mark Austin Steele

Spread the love

On this week’s episode, Jordan had the pleasure of catching up with one of his oldest and dearest friends. Mark Steele is a writer, a brilliant musician, and a bit of an amateur philosopher. He is the guy that Jordan spent most of his twenties trying to make sense of the world with.

Tonight we talk about UFOs, occult curses, and communing with the dead; all colored by the circuitous and truly unique path that he has taken through life.
