Moving Break Over, Welcome to 2020!! ODO 171

After a completely unintended hiatus, I’m back! Welcome to 2020!! I’ve got an update on the move to our new home. I give a kind of loose tour of what’s kept me away. There’s some excitement over my new office. And I give some insight into what I want to do with the show and more in 2020.

Friends From Down Under w/ Paul Przytula From the Countdown Podcast: ODO 170

*Sorry about the delay folks. Moving is a pain
This week I have my conversation with Paul Przytula from “the Countdown Movie and TV Reviews) podcast. This was originally recorded as part of NAPODPOMO, but I just got too busy to put it together. I’m not gonna lie, I do way too much of the talking in this episode. This is a prime example of why I should have talking points for guests, if only to shut myself up. I need to get Paul back on sometime so I can do less of the talking. Either way, enjoy!

Kate Wallinga- Ignorance Is Bliss: NAPODPOMO -Ep 12

Today’s NAPODPOMO gift is my more formal chat with Kate Wallinga from “Ignorance Is Bliss” and “Lifeworld.” This is actually the conversation that we originally sat down to have back in September that turned into my October guest of the month episode. That being said, if you’ve listened to that, you may notice some overlapping beats.

We’re Buying A House: NAPODPOMO- Day 6

It’s day 6 of NAPODPOMO, and I’ll just cut right to the chase. The reason I didn’t release an episode on Monday the 4th was because last week we began the process of buying a home. After a post-Halloween visit to a new housing community going up nearby, my wife made the executive decision to pull the trigger on attempting to buy our first house. So now, we’re all sorts of busy.

Popeye’s Chicken Sandwich Strikes Again: NAPODPOMO-Day 5

Day 5 of NAPODPOMO brings us to The News…

It’s Day 5 of NAPOPOMO and it’s time for some “BS From The News:”
(Trigger warning pssshhh: I use a looootttt of F-bombs in this rant. You’re welcome.)

Man Stabbed To Death Over Popeye’s Chicken Sandwich

A Maryland man was stabbed to death during an argument outside a Popeye’s restaurant. A large line had formed of people wanting to get the, now infamous, Popeye’s chicken sandwich. Apparently the argument began over somebody cutting in line and escalated to the point of one man stabbing another. Authorities attempted life saving measures, but the man later died at a local hospital.

We Are A Bunch Of Narcissists w/ Kate Wallinga: ODO 168

It’s that time again. Where I have one of my podcaster friends on to talk about whatever comes up. This month it’s Kate Wallinga from “Ignorance Was Bliss” and “Lifeworld.” Except this time she was invited to be part of November’s National Podcast Post Month interviews. After editing down that episode, all the stuff “left on the cutting room floor” was just too good to throw away, and made for a pretty good episode itself. Of course, we talk podcasting, but also about the relationships we’ve formed from the podcast community, and the psychological side of why we do this crazy thing called podcasting. In a nutshell, “we’re all narcissists.”

A Sick Dog, R. Kelly, A Girl, And Her Horror: ODO 165

Geeze I’m busy this week. With all of the preparing for NAPODPOMO I almost forgot I still needed to do a regular episode. On top of that, our dog has been sick and I’ve been having to take him back and forth to his vet with no answers yet. In the news: I’ve got a guy who likes to scam scammers, a stupid woman who should have been eaten, and R. Kelly reaffirming that he’s not only a douchebag, but also a jackass. Finally in Recommended Listening, I’m gonna try to keep it creepy for October with this week’s feature: “A Girl And Her Horror.”

Podcasting Is A Bob Ross Painting w/ Derek Graziano: ODO 164

Although he has appeared on the show before, Derek had yet to be my esteemed “Guest of the Month” so I needed to fix that. Because we’re both nerds, we talk about video games. And, because we’re both podcasters, we talk podcasting and how Derek has checked off a lot of podcast category boxes. He’s done a gaming news show, an actual play tabletop game which shifted into an improvised audio drama, and now he’s dipping his toes into True Crime with his new project “Lifeworld.”
