ODO 87: New Year, Same Stupidity

Happy New Year! This week’s news shows that just because the year is new, doesn’t mean that the stupidity has changed one bit. I’ve got an ignorant burglar, an idiotic driver, a bunch of people who just didn’t get a joke, and even more stupidity. Plus I rattle on about New Year’s and my birthday and all the little side tangents that those take me to. In Recommended Listening I’ve got something a little spooky, a little creepy, and a whole lot of silly with “The Unseen Hour.”  (download mp3)  -WEIRD NEWS-  Polar Plunge Postponed Due To Cold Weather The annual Polar Plunge in Hyannis, Massachusetts has been postponed because it’s just too cold to watch. The weather forecast predicted a wind chill below zero degrees. Although it may be ok for the plungers, it’s not so great for the spectators. Lawyer Calls Client’s Actions a “Crime Of Stupidity” A Pennsylvania man plead guilty to burglary charges after cutting a hole between his and his neighbors basements and stealing about $200 in quarters.

ODO 86: Yule Time, Christmas Shopping, and New Ideas For 2018

(download mp3)   This week I’m breaking format completely. No news, no Jackass Of The Week, no Recommended Listening. I’m going old school for the last show of the year and just vamping. I get into my returning to work while healing from my rib injuries, what we did for our Yule holiday, checking out Christmas lights, trying to go shopping on Christmas Day, and what I want to do with the show for next year.  In 2018 I would like to start using the Recommended Listening segment to feature podcast submissions from listeners. I can only suggest so many shows personally, and I want to hear what you are listening to. Send me you recommendations/ reviews either written or in audio form to odddadout@gmail.com. I am turning the segment over to you, dear listener. As a bonus, if you submit a feature to me for the show, I will put all of those together and draw one out to win some Odd Dad Out Swag.  Happy New Year! I hope to see you in 2018. Thank You and Goodnight…
