NorvilleRogers.com is the web home of Matt Mikalatos, JR. Forasteros, and Clay Morgan who co-created The StoryMen Podcast and are also bipeds.
Launched in March 2014, this site features a variety of our writing and favorite things. You’ll find healthy doses of thoughts on pop culture, faith, history and whatever else the internet gods spew forth from their gaping, digital Vesuviuses. We’re not sure what the plural form of Vesuvius is.
All content has been certified as quality collections of words carefully formed into sentences that were then lovingly massaged into paragraphs and, in some cases, even coherent thoughts.
You can connect with us via Twitter for now. Many more updates to come.
Thanks for stopping by. High five.
