Soul Forge

The Soul Forge Podcast

The Soul Forge is a place of silent mystery, quiet contemplation, and outright mayhem!

Shawn Vanderloo guides you through the adventures of living, but mostly talks about stupid things he has done because of girls. Topics include life and love, sex and dating, joy and heartache, memories and loss, and so much more! Don’t worry, it’s not nearly as pretentious as it sounds.
