May’s guest of the month is one of my oldest podcast friends. She’s a podcaster, podcast editor, consultant, and author. From The Story Behind, Hate to Weight, and E-Podcast Productions, it’s Emily Prokop.(more…)
It’s that time again! April’s Guest of the Month is Chris the Mole Man. Chris is the host of the Mole Man show, cohost of Midnight in America, and operator of Radio Mole Hole. He is also part of the twisted collective we call the Surprise Motherfuckers. We have the loosest of lose conversations ranging from big city vs small town life and presidential tweeting to platonic friendships.
*Warning: we do get into a little kick about politics for a bit.
The March Guests Of The Month are Lisa and Sam from I Shake My Head with Lisa and Sam.
Like all of my guests, we talk a little about podcasting, how they do their show, our pod-friends, and how we became friends in the first place.
In classic Lisa and Sam fashion, we geek out over donuts, spring training baseball, we get into Lisa’s hangups about food, and I make a case for why I should be their designated “Merican,” or at least their “Mexcan-Merican.” As always, tangents abound. For their podcast recommendation they suggest a fellow Canadian podcast, “Nooks and Crannies.”
“I Shake My Head” follows the decades long friendship of two goofy women from Saskatoon who find themselves having some of their best conversations in the car! Yes, they actually record in Sam’s car, “Betty.” It’s not especially deep, or political. But, they don’t want to make you think. They just want to make you laugh and be the least stressful part of your day.
Extended cut includes chats about our ages, the fact that we’ve never had a real conversation before, mix tapes, getting into the zone, and Sam’s bladder.
Like an open University with no tuition that digs into the politics of everyday life and the activism that shapes it

It’s Guest of the Month time! For February, here to talk about the March 2019 Sunshine Summit, I’ve got Heather Welch from “Sunshine and Powercuts.” This time around there is a much wider variety of guests. We go in to some of the familiar returning faces, and learn a little about all of the new guests that you may not have heard of before. And of course I throw us off course, but we bring it all together in the end.(more…)
It’s time for January’s guest of the month, and starting the year off is Chris Osborne from “Play Comics” and the “Meddling Kids” podcasts. Of course we talk about Chris’ shows, and because I can’t keep my brain on straight we go off into an assortment of tangents. We get into podcasting and the issues with reaching out to guests, and Chris shares his pick for Recommended Listening, “Chrises On Infinite Earths.”
This week I am joined by my first ever remote guest, my Surprise Mfers brother, Mike Jolitz. Much less an interview and more just a couple buddies having a chat, we somehow cover all of the regular show segments. Of course, things get derailed far more easily than in regular episodes and there’s way more toilet humor. We talk podcasting, news, comedy, kids, teachers, military experience, and more. Of course we get interrupted by kids, and dogs, and all other sorts of “Mr. Mom” type racket. And finally, we wrap up with one of Mike’s favorite podcasts, Afterburn 739.
