Just when I think I’ve escaped the most addictive candy based mobile game in history, my wife just has to pull me back in. But that’s not all. I’ve also got a few words to say about Peeps as well. In the news I have an ironic fire and another repeat offender. It’s the return of Martina Big in the Jackass of the Week. Finally, after what has got to be the longest wait of any planned feature, this week I am talking all about “The Dirty Bits Podcast.”
I’ve been sick. That’s about it. Long story short, I had a wicked cough last week that was kicking my ass and I just didn’t have the energy to record. Fast forward to this Tuesday and I wake up with a very familiar pain. My bronchitis had flared up and I could hardly get out of bed. And I get around to the news I promised last week..
I’m rewinding a bit to talk about my birthday, and more accurately the gifts I got for my birthday and Yule (spoilers it’s coffee.) In Recommended Listening I’m doing another little rewind to the other show from previous guest, Derek, from the Sometimes Geek podcast. with Rolling Misadventures. Finally in the Jackass of the Week, I’ve got a guy who lied about his age so bad, I don’t know what’s worse, him or the people who fell for it.
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. (Download)
Spring has sprung, at least in Arizona, and I’m definitely feeling it. I can’t really say the same for the rest of the country. The news has been pretty random this week. No real theme, just lots of oddity. I’ve got Tarantula burgers, bad jokes, and even a couple drug smugglers. And in “Recommended Listening” it’s time to look back at our childhood with “Now That I’m Older.” (Download)
