eBook: Afraid to Start a Podcast

What About Bob?


Bob Heske


Hi there and thanks for visiting. My name is Bob Heske and I am a filmmaker, screenwriter, graphic novelist and now podcaster. I started the Afraid of Nothing podcast right before Covid-19 when I figured, "I'm gonna be alone for awhile, so why not have some great conversations with people who would normally not talk to me?".

The Afraid of Nothing podcast is a continuation of my award-winning documentary of the same name (yes, we won one award). If you like this podcast, you should check out the documentary here. (You can also watch it on Amazon Prime.) And if you like this podcast and the documentary, please leave 5-star reviews for both. I don't make money doing this so good reviews are the only currency I get. Consider it my Bitcoin!

As for me, I am a single dad of two girls (both bookworms) and the smallest German shorthaired pointer you've ever seen (part hound, too, I think). By day, I work in marketing for financial services where the people are super talented but not quite as interesting as the out-of-the-box guests on my show. I am on the wrong side of 50, where time speeds up and curiosity about our mortality and relevance soars. My paranormal interest really piqued when my mother passed from Alzheimer's, which prompted me to make my first independent film. Even though she didn't recognize me at the end, I believe my mother looks over me now. And, aside from podcasting, I sense she wants me to write a book. 

So join me on my journey. Let's find out together what goes on after we move on.

Cuyle Carvin

From time to time I will have a co-host named Cuyle Carvin. He's an actor who also appeared in my documentary and on some epic shows like The Walking Dead and Cobra Kai. Don't believe me? Check out his IMDB page. Aside from being an avid Vegan and not eating meat, Cuyle is a pretty chill dude who just wants to act, resell stuff on eBay, record YouTube videos in his new truck, investigate the paranormal and eventually settle down in Salem where he's been told he was killed during the Witch Trials (watch the documentary for deets).

Cuyle appears (so far) in episode 23 (Afraid of My Past Salem Life), 29 (Afraid of the Bean Town Medium), 46 (Afraid of the Medium Who Stopped) and 53 (Afraid of a Rockin' Good Ghost Story).
