Life Talk



Three friends, Dylan, Chase, and Oliver, from a small town in Colorado stay connected while discussing topics far and wide about their life experiences thus far now that theyve all moved away from each other. As they head into their final years of college and into the real world, it is a very exciting time to start a new podcast documenting that journey and sharing thoughts along the way.

  • Lowe's vs Home Depot: The Ultimate Debate

    23/10/2020 Duration: 43min

    Today on the podcast we discuss one of the most important questions of our van build. Is Home Depot or Lowe's better for getting materials to build a van? This question has challenged philosophers for decades. We are thrilled to add our opinion into the conversation and hopefully answer this question. Thank you for tuning into the podcast! We are moving our upload date to Thursdays so stick around to see a new podcast episode every Thursday! --- Send in a voice message:

  • The TikTok Live Podcast

    15/10/2020 Duration: 53min

    Today's episode of the Project Today Podcast is an incredibly special one... for many reasons! For one, we are recording outside of Colorado for the first time in MONTHS, as we are now doing the conversion in the great (and hot) state of Arizona! We road-tripped down here a little over a week ago, and have now spent the last three days working towards finishing the kitchen frame of our Uhaul (it's almost done!) Also, this coming Sunday we will be posting a Youtube video once again! We took a little break from creating content last week after the road trip, but this Sunday our normal two-videos-per-week schedule will resume. Also, we've back on TikTok as well, posting videos there on a near-daily basis. Speaking of TikTok, at the end of today's podcast we have a special and completely unplanned surprise... a TikTok live Q&A!!! You'll get to hear us answering questions from our TikTok audience live here today, about everything from the box truck conversion to our favorite songs for road trips. We hope you

  • The Maiden Voyage - Where Does Our Adventure Go Next?

    07/10/2020 Duration: 38min

    The box truck is really starting to take shape, we are not quite move in ready but it is time for us to take our first real trip with it so we can finish the build at Oliver's home in Arizona! This week we talk about our plans for the next few weeks as we get ready to depart the next day and our excitement to get on the road and have a bit of a change of pace! --- Send in a voice message:

  • Is the Box Truck Conversion...Over?

    30/09/2020 Duration: 39min

    It's been two months, and the question that everybody wants answered remains... Is the conversion over? And that is exactly the question we try to answer in today's podcast! Welcome back everyone, it's been two weeks since the last podcast and we are SO EXCITED to bring you some news and updates. The short answer to the question above is no... but also yes! Kind of... but mostly no.  And with that, let's get into today's podcast! --- Send in a voice message:

    After almost two months working on the box truck, it's finally time for... A ROAD TRIP! That's right, Project Today is going on the road! The box truck conversion has been going really well, and within two weeks from the time of writing this description we will be ready to start traveling around the U.S. There are only a few big projects left to do before the Uhaul will be "livable", and immediately when we hit that threshold it will be time to hit the road! Our first stop: Phoenix, Arizona. Not only do we talk about this upcoming road trip in today's podcast, but we also go over some of the more interesting projects we've done so far in the entire build, including our couch-to-bed conversion and our tongue-in-groove ceiling. Both of these projects have take a lot longer than we had anticipated, and they've each presented us with numerous problems along the way. Yet, in true Project Today spirit, we're getting closer and closer to completing both of them with each passing day. We hope you all enjoy today

  • Snow Days in September!!!

    09/09/2020 Duration: 51min

    Snow in September, while we're converting our retired Uhaul box truck into a full-time tiny house? We promise you'll never see anything like this every again... Welcome back to the Project Today podcast, where today we will be going over our last week of work on the box truck conversion. Rather than having a tie day (take-it-easy day) we've given ourselves a bit of a tie week. We are hitting a little bit of that burnout we felt a few weeks ago, and because of that our progress on the van build has been halted. On top of this, we also haven't gone over our New Years Resolutions from this past January! It's been nine months since we set up our resolutions here on this podcast, so we thought today would be a great day to analyze our progress towards those goals. 2020 has been a crazy year, not just for us but for the entire world, and our resolutions have (of course) been drastically changed by the circumstances of the world. But that isn't necessarily a bad thing. In times like these, when we might be str

  • Starting a Box Truck Conversion with NO EXPERIENCE - And Getting Monetized!

    04/09/2020 Duration: 57min

    As we continue making progress on our box truck conversion, we're finding out just how much fun it is to learn new things and apply them immediately into our lives! This week, the three of us started to really get into woodworking... something none of us had ever done before in our lives. And for three rookies, we think our latest project (a couch-bed frame that will sleep two of us in the box truck) came out really well!!! And with that, welcome everyone to the Project Today podcast! It's been a super exciting week of van build progress, with a Youtube video and 4 TikToks going up since we last posted a pod. We finished a menagerie of smaller projects last week, and this week we dug into one of the biggest projects of the entire conversion - the beds. Two people will be sleeping on a queen bed down in the box truck itself, and during the day the bed will convert into a big U-shaped couch with a table in the middle! It's absolutely a project that we've been looking forward to for weeks... and now that it's d

  • Making AMAZING Progress in our Van Build/Box Truck Conversion!

    27/08/2020 Duration: 43min

    In the last week, we've installed: Amazing vinyl floors, insulation for the walls, insulation for the ceiling, spray insulation in every corner, sealant for the windows, and a full gym/squat rack on the outside of the truck! So yes, in short we are going through a period of incredible momentum in the box truck conversion. We're getting work done on the van every single day AND have been sticking to the schedule we gave ourselves a couple weeks ago, which has allowed us to post almost a TikTok every day and two new Youtube videos. And as if that isn't enough, we've also been finding plenty of ways to take some time "off" and clear our heads, which has also kept us feeling invigorated and excited for whatever comes next. In today's episode we go over everything we've worked on in the past week, while also remembering some of the projects we'd struggled with the most before this week began. It's feeling more and more real with every single project that we finish (this is becoming a cliche that we discuss in

  • Van Life: Highs and Lows in our Box Truck Conversion

We have been following our schedule for the past three days, so this is officially the first podcast that goes out on this schedule! We are really excited to stick to this schedule and put out content in a more professional way on a real schedule! Thank you so much for listening to the Project Today Podcast!

  • Van Life UPDATE! Feeling... Burnout?

    14/08/2020 Duration: 01h02min

    In the latest episode of the Project Today podcast, the boys gather round and discuss all the new updates and milestones reached over the course of the last few weeks! We've been working hard (or hardly working?) on creating the coolest tiny home on wheels ever seen... and after a two-week hiatus from podcasting, it's time to bring everyone back into the fold and talk about our feelings towards the box truck build. Is it possible that we're actually feeling burnout? But first things first, we just have to say that we're sorry for not posting an episode in two weeks. It's been a very busy 14 days and we've found it difficult to actually stick to our own deadlines, so today we decided to go over our plans for a different, better and more streamlined schedule moving forward. This schedule encompasses all of the things that we try to accomplish on a daily/weekly basis, including Youtube videos, TikTok videos,m podcasts, Instagram posts, and, of course, actually converting our box truck into a tiny home!

  • Non-Negotiables in the Van Life Build

    01/08/2020 Duration: 43min

    We accomplished so much in the past week of building the van! We did about 5 or 6 different van projects, released around 10 tiktoks, and released a Youtube video! We spent a lot of the week working on the van and doing research about future projects. It feels really good to accomplish so much in the box truck conversion from this first week. Check out our YouTube Channel and Tiktok, Project Today on both platforms! You can supplement your podcast listening with visuals of the van. Thanks so much for listening to this episode!

    16/07/2020 Duration: 52min

    Project Today... has officially begun!!! Just two days ago, we purchased our van. For months we have been talking about living the vanlife, converting a used Uhaul into a luxurious living space, and it's FINALLY happening! No longer will our listeners need to hear us talk about our excitement for purchasing the van... it's literally sitting in our front yard. And that's what we want to talk about in today's podcast. Not only the process behind choosing a box truck as our vehicle of choice, but also the entire van buying process. Over the last two days, we went down to Denver and finally all met up in person. We then test drove two Uhauls, negotiated a price, and drove away from the lot the next day with a Uhaul of our own! In this podcast we really get into that entire process in detail, so if you are excited for that, make sure you listen to the entire podcast! Otherwise, we talk about the exact finances of the box truck, what we expect to pay per month in the future (once we live in the van) and everythi

  • Van Life Summer Logistics

    09/07/2020 Duration: 45min

    In this episode, we review final summer logistics for our VanLife Project. This is the last podcast that we are recording over FaceTime for at least the next 6 months. By this time next week, we will be all together in person and hopefully will have a van! Thanks for listening! --- Send in a voice message:

  • VanLife UPDATE

    02/07/2020 Duration: 38min

    Another week, another VanLife update! At this point our lives are basically spent excitedly awaiting the day when we can finally step into an empty Uhaul, only to find out that we are wholeheartedly unprepared for the actual prospect of converting a van. Just kidding! We've each been doing our research, and with only a couple weeks left before we're finally in possession of our shiny new (used) box truck, it's time to start brainstorming. And that's what this video is about - brainstorming! At this point, each of us have become an expert on at least one aspect of our van conversion, and now it's time to start testing our theories out with the other two. For example, Dylan, being the pragmatically-inclined electrical engineer of the group, has a pretty good idea of exactly what our electrical needs are going to be. And in this episode, we actually visualize all the things that will need some sort of power/charge frequently: phones, camera batteries, lights, convection ovens, etc. With each new item, we're

  • #VanLife Trial Run

    18/06/2020 Duration: 55min

    For the first time in our channel's history... we're recording a podcast from inside a Uhaul truck! We've been driving across the country for three days now, and it's time to finally recap the trip here on a Project Today podcast. After months of talking about #VanLife, we've finally rented our first Uhaul and have been testing out our future home here on the road as well! All in all, it's been an exciting trip that is just the first step in a long journey we have ahead of us, and if you're as excited for #VanLife as we are, this episode just might be your favorite one yet. DISCLAIMER: the audio here is bad. We decided to literally record the podcast while driving through upstate New York, so in the background you're going to hear the truck, Google maps, and sometimes even the sounds of the outside world. It's the most authentic, in-person podcast we've ever done - and we really hope you guys enjoy! --- Send in a voice message:

    This week two of the three of us are officially adults and done with college! One of us, however, will be a junior for the rest of his life... (XD) In another exciting episode of Life Talk we discuss more specifics about van plan as we gear up for our first go next week where we will be driving to New York in a UHaul very similar to the one we will be converting. Stay tuned for our third ever in person podcast on the road next week, but in the mean time enjoy this one! --- Send in a voice message:

  • The Avengers Are Going to Convert Our Van

    03/06/2020 Duration: 32min

    After months of planning, we've made our decision - the Avengers will build our van. Oliver is good friends with Captain America, and we hear Tony Stark can build things pretty well, so this decision was pretty easy to make. But in all honesty, there's another decision that needed to be answered today: where should we convert the van? Currently, all three of us are in different places, and in one months' time (we can't believe how soon that is!) we'll need to get together so that we can actually start converting our future home. The decision has come down to two options: Colorado or Arizona. Both locations offer us free rent through family ties, which is a massive plus for our immediate finances. However, both locations also come with their own distinct pros and cons... and right now, each of us has a different opinion on where we should be. Our different perspectives come full circle in this podcast, where we finally decide where our summer plans lie. Otherwise, be sure to follow this podcast for the next
