Ever have one of those days, where you brain just fritzes out and you don’t remember what you were gonna say? That’s me today. I do have some weird news though, including some creative political ads, an ironic act of arson, and some people who are just too sensitive about stuff. Lastly, it’s time for the 3rd Annual Livestream For The Cure.(more…)
So you know how I mentioned my wife being sick during Foodstock? Now that plague has spread across our boys. Speaking of plague, the news brings tales of why you should be more careful about what you eat. And finally, in Recommended Listening, its time to learn some cool stuff.
I’m talking about “Your Brain On Facts.”
It’s funny how, on a week where all of my topics are revisiting things I’ve talked about in the past, I would also end up re-recording the episode. I get in to going to Foodstock again last weekend and how that all went down. And, in Recommended Listening I pull out a “in case you missed it” for my recent appearance on a previously featured show, “Millennial Pagan Podcast.”(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.
Back in true form. I’m all over the place this week. I go from allergy meds to my cat coffee-ing my keyboard. The news brings a lot of porn, a big waste of money, and the worst penis enlargement idea ever. And in Recommended Listening it’s the now 5 time featured John Bukenas and his “Unbelievably Stupid Podcast.”(more…)
Another show where I didn’t come up with a theme for the news, the news did that all by itself. I’ve got 3 stories out of China that just make me shake my head, including a couple questionable driver’s licenses, and an example of how not to incorporate smoothies into your diet. Plus, we took the boys bowling and, in so many words, we suck.(more…)
It’s time for a BONUS EPISODE!! I had a busy week…………………………………………………………………

Something, Nothing, Anything, and Everything
In ThIs EpIsOdE:
Join Kalvin and Nick this week on the banks of the Hellespont as we discuss stepping up against overwhelming odds, laughter in the face of evil, and standing strong at a pivotal moment in history with defeat all but certain: the Battle or Thermopylae. We take a look at the lead up and composition of both sides of one of the most significant battles of the last 2,000 years and what led to victory and the survival of Western civilization. The intensity is dialed up to 11 as an army that blots out the sun with its arrows and drinks rivers dry clashes with a conglomerate of men led by some of the most badass warriors and tacticians in all of history. Listen well, the fate of the ancient world depends on it.

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

Spring break is here and the boys are home, so what does that mean for me? It’s time to do some spring cleaning. To be fair, we also decided to make some fresh lemonade, (because Arizona.) In the news I’ve got another fake kidnapping, a questionable use of a t-shirt cannon, and what can only be described as the worst sexual experience imaginable. In Recommended Listening, the sexual news seems like the perfect opportunity to talk about this extra naughty podcast, it’s “Two 2 Girls, One Mic: The Porncast.”(more…)
