Back To Reality: ODO 155

I’m back from vacation, and it’s one of those my yaking my head off kind of weeks. I’m going over all of the stuff from my recent vacation back to Texas, including my little brother’s wedding. Warning: I can’t tell a linear story, and I don’t even know how much of things I actually got to, but it’s fun sharing my vacation with you.

“Coming Out” Laughing w/ BSP: Believer Skeptic podcast :ODO 154

Since June is Pride month, I decided to be a little pandery and invite the only gay podcasters I know, Chris and Cody from BSP: Believer Skeptic Podcast, on as my Guests of the Month.
If you aren’t familiar, BSP is a paranormal/ supernatural podcast with an LGBT twist.
We talk about our families and how theirs reacted to them “coming out.” I share my experiences having a gay sister who is also pagan and how our family dealt with my wife and I “coming out of the broom closet.” We rip on YouTubers a bit, and I freaked them out with some creepy supernatural stories from my life.

Car Troubles, Poor Spending, and A Girl In Space: ODO 153

Lastly, in Recommended Listening, I have what seems to be my most talked about show not featuring John Bukenas. It’s actually time to talk about “Girl in Space.”

Why So Serious? :ODO 148

Ever have one of those days, where you brain just fritzes out and you don’t remember what you were gonna say? That’s me today.

Lastly, it’s time for the 3rd Annual Livestream For The Cure.

Let’s try this again: ODO 146

It’s funny how, on a week where all of my topics are revisiting things I’ve talked about in the past, I would also end up re-recording the episode. I get in to going to Foodstock again last weekend and how that all went down. And, in Recommended Listening I pull out a “in case you missed it” for my recent appearance on a previously featured show, “Millennial Pagan Podcast.”

We have the loosest of lose conversations ranging from big city vs small town life and presidential tweeting to platonic friendships.

ODO 142: Birthday Bowling and WTF China?

Another show where I didn’t come up with a theme for the news, the news did that all by itself. I’ve got 3 stories out of China that just make me shake my head, including a couple questionable driver’s licenses, and an example of how not to incorporate smoothies into your diet. Plus, we took the boys bowling and, in so many words, we suck.
