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!


Puppies, Police, and Pumpkin Spice Spam: ODO 159

I still cannot believe it, but by a strange series of events, we have acquired another dog from my sister this week. In the news I’ve got weird proposed laws, pumpkin spice Spam, and a Jackass impersonating a police officer. In place of a Recommended Listening feature, I have a small sampling of what I’ve been bingeing lately ahead of some future features.


ODO 93: Hearts, Hoops, And A Whole Lot Of Stupid

Happy Valentine’s Day! My wife made me not only buy her a gift, but have it delivered to her at work. She also bought me a gift when I told her not to, so I guess we’re even. We had a great family trip to see the World Championship Hoop Dancing competition in Phoenix this weekend, and everyone had a blast. I took a poll to crown the “Jackass of the Week.” Finally, since I seem to be throwing format out the window this month, I chat about the upcoming Sunshine Summit 2018 being put on by Heather from Sunshine and PowerCuts.

  • Man appeals DWI conviction claiming that the blood-alcohol level test discriminates against alcoholics.

After his fourth DWI conviction, a man is appealing his case claiming that using a simple blood-alcohol level test for arrests discriminates against alcoholics who have a higher tolerance for alcohol. He insists that because alcoholics have a higher alcohol tolerance, their driving ability is not as impaired by the lower legal limit and they should not be subject to the same regulations.
