It’s the last week of school for my boys, and summer is right around the corner. In the news, I’ve got a few ways to really waste your money. I’ve got an update on last weekend’s Livestream For The Cure. And, in Recommended Listening, we’re revisiting a show that has announced their end. It’s time to say goodbye to More Gooder Than.(more…)
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 time for a BONUS EPISODE!! I had a busy week…………………………………………………………………

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.

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…)
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.”
It has been a hectic couple of weeks around the “Odd” house. Between getting sick (again) and crazy weather, I have gotten behind on some housework. Of course, the boys aren’t about to stop adding more to that list of headaches. On top of that, I’ve got a full load of “BS From the News” ranging from fake kidnappings to questionable drug testing.(more…)
This week I find myself in a sea of parents at one of the most uncomfortable events of the year… Children’s winter concerts. Throwing the season out the window, in Recommended Listening I’ve got a new take on a horror movie podcast with “Kim and Ket Stay Alive… Maybe.” And I wrap it all up with a failed marriage between a woman… and a ghost.
I’m back to “normal” with this week’s show where I talk about my new status of being “officially” a Dad, and it revolves around lights. This week’s featured podcast brings the 4th appearance of John Buckenas, 2nd for Jessica Kupferman, and Recommended Listening debut of Melissa Brilliant with their show “Brilliant Observations.” And it all wraps up with a Jackass of The Week involving a woman who just wanted to buy some Pringles. Or did she?
Happy Halloween everyone! This week I simply take a stroll through the headstones and talk about all of the things that get me in the mood for Halloween. From Music and movies to, of course, podcasts. I chat about the Netflix series “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” and have the long awaited Recommended Listening feature of “Sirenicide.”
I realized, as I started recording, that Halloween is only a week away and I don’t know what we are going to do this year. As I thought about that I started thinking about the holiday season and how Halloween kicks off the season of spending. Between Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas time, you just start purging cash at the end of October. I also reflect on how my general introversion makes me uncomfortable with holiday travel, and I have a callback to last week’s psychological breakdown.
For the Jackass of the Week, I’m off to Spain for some unnecessarily expensive worms.
