Good morning Bad Decisions: ODO 139

Holy cow the news has so many people just making bad decisions. Dumb rappers, horrible mothers, and someone who just doesn’t care about that warning sign at the zoo. All that aside, I’ve had my hands full juggling home/work/podcast stuff this week, including taking our little Bug to Kindergarten orientation. We went to see “Welcome To Night Vale” live last week, and as such, this week’s featured podcast is their commentary show, “Good Morning Night Vale.”

Sunshine Summit 2019 w/ Heather Welch: ODO 137

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.

ODO 107: I Don’t Need To Be Rich

The Livestream For The Cure is over and they managed to raise over $11,000 for the Cancer Research Institute. I’ve got a small sidebar about my son and coffee, and this week I came to realization that I don’t really want to be rich. The news brings some questionable headlines, an irritable barber, and an absent-minded astronaut. At long last, the time has come for this week’s Recommended Listening feature: Who’s Right w/ Doug and Anthony.

ODO 106: Beers, Bears, Pizza, And Plumbing

Once again I do not have the Epic Film Guys on the show and it’s totally my fault this time. My brain is all over the place this week. From Livestream For The Cure, to wanting to get into podcast editing and voiceover work, to home plumbing issues. It’s been a busy week. I’ve got an SMF news break from Mike Jolitz, beer that’s not beer, a pizza festival without pizza, a family dog that’s not a dog and more. For Recommended Listening I’m talking more about the Livestream For The Cure and the Hello Cancer WTF campaign for Perry Johnson and how you can help.

Support Hello Cancer WTF

Recently, good friend and fellow podcaster, Perry Johnson from Hello Life WTF and the Pod Stuff was diagnosed with an inoperable form of stomach cancer, which has spread to his liver and the lymph nodes in his throat. They have chosen to fight this cancer to the end and he has begun preparations for chemotherapy. This recent development only adds to the strain on this family. As the sole income earner in his family, Perry’s inability to work through treatment makes things that much more difficult.  Please support this amazing family in this time of need.

ODO 105: I’m Not A Doctor, But I Play One On YouTube

(Download)

 

I know I promised an Epic Film Guys guest spot this week, but sometimes schedules don’t work out the best. I get into why I’ve got 2 shows that dropped this week,  and I share my experience from just a few days ago with my 4 year old and a scorpion. I’ve also got an SMF News break from Mike Jolitz and a very full news segment on my own with a lot of tales of YouTube doctoring. And finally in recommended listening, I’ve got a very funny straightforward movie podcast featuring 2 movie professionals from Australia, “We Watched A Thing.

ODO 104: Cancer Sucks Noodles

(Download)

I’ve been in kind of a funk lately. Leading up to the Livestream For The Cure, a number of my friends, some of them involved in the event, have been slapped by the evil bastard that is cancer. So I talk about that for a bit. Short show this time around. I originally didn’t intend to release this episode but changed my mind. Not a lot of laughs. To lighten things up I continue with my coverage of LFTC guest with this week’s featured podcast, “Who Spiked The Puns?

ODO 103: Total Chaos w/ Mike Jolitz

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.

ODO 101: Old Reliable “Idiots”

We’re back to “normal” this week. At least as normal as things really get around here. I’ve been spending a lot of time working on building the website and the patreon for the show. Of course that means I haven’t been nearly as productive as I’d have liked to have been. But we did get a new Shark. That’s exciting right? The news this week gets us back to those standard stories of drugs, bad judgement, and plain old stupidity. The “Jackass of The Week” puts a new twist on the old excuse, “it’s not mine.” Finally, in Recommended Listening, I’m getting back to guests from the Livestream For The Cure with another Phoenix based show: BSP: The Idio[t]Syncracy Files.

Odd Dad Out Episode 100

Odd Dad Out- Episode 100!!!

After nearly 2 and a half years I have reached episode 100 of the podcast and I spend a ton of time just vamping about it. I talk about how the show started, how the format grew and changed over time, and how I got to where I am now. I answer email questions from podcast friends from around the world, and just soak in the fact that I have finally reached such a milestone.
