Fun In The Kitchen- Matt Heyman Pt 2: ODO 180

For part 2 of my interview with Matt Heyman of “PreRecorded Live,” it’s all about food. I’m a cook. Matt is a trained chef. We can talk food about as much as we can talking podcasting. As a matter of fact, this half of the conversation is the reason I split it into two episodes in the first place. No trigger warning this week except to say, maybe don’t listen if you’re hungry.

(Pssssstttttā€¦. The rest of the info is the same as part 1)

Laughing Through Our Fears- Matt Heyman- Part 1: ODO 179

For the next two weeks I’ll be releasing my “interview” with Matt Heyman from “PreRecorded Live.” In part 1 of the interview, we get into a wide range of topics. From general tech, to home improvement, and even to how we would cope with various life changing traumas, including Matt’s three brushes with cancer.


-Trigger Warning-

This episode actually touches on some heavier topics, namely my personal robbery trauma, Matt’s cancer battles, and how we feel we would cope with certain traumatic situations. Of course this is all done with a healthy dose of comedy because that’s who we are. We don’t get especially serious, but if those types of subjects may bother you, next week will be much lighter. Also, Matt had testicular cancer, sooooo there’s lots of ball talk. (Hence the walnuts in the episode art heheā€¦)

Laundry Apocalypse w/ Donna From “Broken Compass” Podcast

It’s guest time again Oddballs. This time I have Donna Johnson from the “Broken Compass” podcast, which is a very new podcast featuring Donna and her best friend Angela talking about, well, all of the things they like to talk about. It’s a little bit true crime, a little bit conspiracies, and a little bit just a couple of moms bullshitting. Like me, Donna is the stay-at-home parent to her two boys, so this conversation gets way into all of the “fun” of being a parent that they just don’t warn you about.

Practical Valentine’s Chores: ODO 175

It’s Valentine’s Day! For some it’s a time to get romantic and maybe shower your significant other with gifts. For me, it’s kinda complicated. First off I have no clue what to get my wife. All of the standard gifts either wont work or are too expensive. That and I’m just too financially practical to justify spending the money for a lot of things.


Then I get into my kids’ outright refusal to clean their bedrooms, even to the point of doing other chores that they aren’t responsible for, just so they don’t have to do the ones that they are.

Finally, another founding member of the Podfix network has announced their ending. We’re saying goodbye to “Weird With You.”

Robot Sharks and Ceiling Fans: ODO 173

This week, I decided to flex my daddy DIY skills and install a few ceiling fans in the house. Unfortunately I’ve never actually done it before, and my arms are sore AF. Ironically, while I’m being so productive in one way, I’m also being lazy because we just bought a robot vacuum. And I give some updates on some changes coming to the show.

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.
