ODO 91: Camels and Peacocks and Ghosts, Oh My!

As usual, I’m generally tired. This week though I have a better than normal reason. I’ve got a jam packed news segment ranging from camel botox to “emotional support peacocks.” A couple stories throw me into kind of mini rants including the “Jackass Of The Week.” This week’s featured podcast comes from the host of a previously featured show. It’s the return of Darel “Big D” Smith and his wife, Cindy, with Smoke and Mirrors.

ODO 81: Landscaping Woes, Meatless Balls, and Other “Podcasts We Listen To”

After being kept up extra late with a couple sick boys, I’m getting sick myself, but “the show must go on!” After my sick boys chat, things turn toward my recent HOA “violation” and my twisted history with those. Oddly it all ends up back on landscaping for some reason. The news brings tales of mistaken identity, death threats, and a national emergency. In my sick brain I completely forgot to do the Jackass of the Week, but that’s fine because I went extra long talking about this week’s “Recommended Listening” feature, “Podcasts We Listen To.”
