ADHD Gardening Moments: ODO 205

This week I have a, longer than planned, garden update, a mini rant about “autism” and “ADHD” being umbrella terms, and a landscaping whoopsie that is a result of my own ADHD tendencies.
Plus, I pontificate on the lurking thoughts about quitting this show in order to start any number of other podcast ideas. And in an impromptu podcast recommendation, I briefly discuss “Succotash: The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast.”

*This episode is brought to you by “Coffee.” When you just need to stay up for 2 more hours. “Coffee” Go to https://www.buymeacoffee.com/odddadout to buy me a coffee and keep me awake, because sleep is overrated anyway.

A Little Show About Little Things: ODO 204

I’m a little lower energy this week. Just a bit tired so I keep things short for once. But “holy mashed potatoes Batman!” I actually have a general theme this week. It’s all about the little things that have dominated my life this week. Starting with flowers on my pumpkins and watermelons going into my very first successfully grown potatoes, and ending with our new kitten.
A little show full of little things

Bonus: Garden Update/ Planting Melons

While I don’t usually like to appear on camera in general, I recently decided to film a little video of myself working in my garden. In short, my dog dug up one of my garden beds shortly after I had planted seeds for cantaloupe and watermelon. So, I had to clean up the bed and replant the seeds. Spoilers: my phone overheated and died mid video, so I had to do a follow-up and was unable to show myself actually planting the seeds.

It’s my first time really trying to make a video for my Youtube channel so I’m totally out of my element doing it, but it was fun. If you have any other ideas of other stuff you’d like me to make videos of, let me know in all the standard locations.

Karate and Carrots: ODO 198

After a bit of a giggle fit, bitching about my sore legs, and some philosophizing over the relationship dynamic between children- their teachers- and their parents, I get into our latest endeavor with Charlie, martial arts. Then, an update on the garden as we try to figure out how we’re going to plant our spring vegetables when half of our winter crops still aren’t ready to harvest. And I reach out for your questions for a potential episode 200 Livestream Q&A.

Let’s Finish Catching Up: ODO 195

In the last episode I started to talk about all of the things that I’ve been up to during the hiatus, before getting thumb deep into a bloody mess. This time the plan is to give you the rest of the update that I meant to give last time. And oh boy! Do I have a lot of stuff to share with you! I’m not gonna cover everything right now. We all know that would take hours and I’m completely capable of doing it. Instead, I’ll hit some high points, and if you want to hear more about something, you can just let me know.
And finally, an update on how the featured podcast segment is changing, and my first rebooted podcast review feature is going to, my very first audio drama love, “Welcome to Night Vale.”

How I Lost My Green Thumb: ODO 194

I know I promised new music and all the segments and stuff, but ya know what, stuff happened and I didn’t get that done. So in the mean time, in honor of the start of the new year, I’m gonna start to tell you about what I was up to last year and then get hung up on a couple of those things, including a return to home schooling, an update on my autumn garden, and, oh yeah, how I sliced off a chunk of my thumb.

*I actually put a trigger warning in this one for one particularly gross detail in the story. Everyone I’ve mentioned it to has visibly cringed, so I decided to be nice and warn you…

I’m Kinda Freakin Out: ODO 191

Long story short: school is starting back up this week for my boys and it’s got me a little freaked out, especially for our new Kindergartner. Add that to not knowing how/if I’m going to get any sleep during the boys school days, how/if I’ll have time to manage the podcast, and my half-brained idea to start live streaming the podcast and my art. Yeeeeaaahhh I’m kinda freaking out. Did I mention I’m freaking out?

Tales of Corona and Cowdogs: ODO 189

This week I’ve got a couple stories for you. First off, I got tested for Corona this week. I’m still waiting on the results by the way. That has lead me to part two where I’m spending my evenings reading “Hank The Cowdog” to my boys. Plus, this week’s garden update brought to you by Hank himself.

Five Years of Rambling: ODO 188

July 22nd marks the 5th anniversary of the start of this podcast.

Am I feeling a little nostalgic?

Yes.

Did I do an emotional clip show?

HELL NO!! I AINT GOT TIME FOR THAT SHIT

This is prime rambling random train of thought stuff. From show changes caused by the new recording schedule, to binge watching horror movies, a few semi-reviews of some of our recent watches, a rant about the Halloween films, and an impromptu commercial for the new Dr Pepper with Cream Soda.

After 5 years, 269 total episodes, (188 real ones) and over 20,000 downloads, I just want to say thank you for listening.

“Taste the flavor.”
