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…

In place of a regular “Recommended Listening” segment, I’m serving up a list of slightly twisted holiday episodes from some of my favorite podcasts.

He keeps them permanently on an artificial tree to avoid damaging them and claims he has never had to change a light bulb.  Micro-Cows Are A Thing, And They’re The Size Of Dogs First off, miniature cows are totally a thing that’s been around for a while. There’s a farmer in Iowa who has managed to breed an entire herd of them averaging only 33 inches tall. That is smaller than some breeds of dogs. So why not skip the puppy and get a mini-cow for Christmas. […]
