May’s guest of the month is one of my oldest podcast friends. She’s a podcaster, podcast editor, consultant, and author. From The Story Behind, Hate to Weight, and E-Podcast Productions, it’s Emily Prokop.(more…)
Back in true form. I’m all over the place this week. I go from allergy meds to my cat coffee-ing my keyboard. The news brings a lot of porn, a big waste of money, and the worst penis enlargement idea ever. And in Recommended Listening it’s the now 5 time featured John Bukenas and his “Unbelievably Stupid Podcast.”(more…)
I’m rewinding a bit to talk about my birthday, and more accurately the gifts I got for my birthday and Yule (spoilers it’s coffee.) In Recommended Listening I’m doing another little rewind to the other show from previous guest, Derek, from the Sometimes Geek podcast. with Rolling Misadventures. Finally in the Jackass of the Week, I’ve got a guy who lied about his age so bad, I don’t know what’s worse, him or the people who fell for it.(more…)
This week I’ve got a quick-ish spot about the recent storm that hammered my neighborhood. In place of a full feature, for Recommended Listening I mention a couple shows I’ve just started listening to that will get a future feature. I’ve got a “Jackass” who’s affair cost him millions. And I ramble on about my recent epiphany that I’m really just not very good with friends.
Another week, another dust storm. Of course it happened right after I washed my van. It’s the last week of Summer vacation before my boys go back to school and, as usual, the school supply list is utterly ridiculous. But we did seem to find a new tool to try and make our boys behave in the form of Lego Harry Potter. Plus, the launch of “Mole Hole Talk Radio.” The release of The Story Behind book. I’m thinking about starting another podcast with interviews. And the proper return of the “Jackass of the Week” with a man too cheap to pay for a car wash.
It’s been a busy week at the newly dubbed ODO Voice Productions. Editing, meetings, and lots of forward momentum in business. Of course that doesn’t mean that was all I had going on. It was a week, oddly, full of medical visits, but not in a bad way. In the news, it seems that everything revolves around death, if maybe only in the slightest way. Plus a couple of jackasses stopping traffic with their public “affection.” And, I’ve got the results of my completely self serving twitter poll about what you like in the show.
So last week was super busy. Between Kindergarten graduation, my brother in town, and other family events, I just didn’t have time to record a new episode. It was fun but busy. Aaannnd then Saturday night hit, and my weekend turned from great to crap on a dime. In the news I’ve got a 15 minute marriage, skipping work to be a god, and some very adult puppets getting in trouble with their friendlier cousins. The Jackass of the Week goes to a plastic surgeon who needs to spend some time behind bars instead of in front of a camera. Finally in Recommended Listening, it’s time to get our conspiracy on with Hysteria 51.

New Power Rangers Trailer shows EVERYTHING
Normally I’d write something about the show but Emily puts it so perfectly herself:
I am a fan of strange trivia, and this show has that in spades. Whether it’s the many origins of pretzels, or a deep dive into the legend that is Betty White, Emily always delivers great information with just a pinch of humor. Her pun game could only be matched by my wife’s. You will come out of every episode smiling having learned something cool. Five stars all the way.
“Small Things is a project that was started in late 2016. The idea was there for a while but we only decided to act upon it once my studies were complete. The aim is to do daily random Small Things that will make a big difference in the world and share my journey along the way. We hope that Small Things will be able help others who also want to make a difference in the world. We believe that if enough of us do Small Things then the world will be changed for the better.”
