Live From “Betty” w/ Lisa and Sam: ODO 141

Guest Time!

The March Guests Of The Month are Lisa and Sam from I Shake My Head with Lisa and Sam.
Like all of my guests, we talk a little about podcasting, how they do their show, our pod-friends, and how we became friends in the first place.
In classic Lisa and Sam fashion, we geek out over donuts, spring training baseball, we get into Lisa’s hangups about food, and I make a case for why I should be their designated “Merican,” or at least their “Mexcan-Merican.” As always, tangents abound. For their podcast recommendation they suggest a fellow Canadian podcast, “Nooks and Crannies.”

I Shake My Head w/ Lisa and Sam

I Shake My Head with Lisa and Sam

“I Shake My Head” follows the decades long friendship of two goofy women from Saskatoon who find themselves having some of their best conversations in the car! Yes, they actually record in Sam’s car, “Betty.” It’s not especially deep, or political. But, they don’t want to make you think. They just want to make you laugh and be the least stressful part of your day.


Extended cut includes chats about our ages, the fact that we’ve never had a real conversation before, mix tapes, getting into the zone, and Sam’s bladder.

A Friendly Troll, Bad Cops, and A Rough Giraffe: ODO 118

Another week, another show where I don’t have a jumping off point. But that quickly takes a turn into my revelation that, when it comes to my friendships, I’m kind of a troll. But I’m a friendly troll. In a long overdue Recommended Listening, this week I’m talking about the Rough Giraffe Podcast. And finally, the Jackass of the Week brings us a couple of Detroit police precincts who really need a lesson in communication.

ODO 90: “I Shake My Head” At Tide Pods and Jury Duty

This week I’m following up on my tales of jury duty from the last show, and I share a little about my weekend experience in the snow. The news ranges from a cheating marathon runner and abusive doctor, to “unnatural” cow sex.” Of course I have to rant about the Tide Pods thing. And In Recommended Listening, we’re having fun in the car with “I Shake My Head w/ Lisa and Sam.”



A Man managed to blow a hole in his pharynx by holding his nose and blocking an especially powerful sneeze.
A woman in Russia, while out at a nightclub with friends, was assaulted by a man. When she went to the hospital to get her injuries checked out for the police report, the doctor on call turned out to be the one who supposedly assaulted her. He then attempted to assault her again before being stopped by nurses.
An accomplished ultra-marathon runner was found to have been cheating by hiding inside of port-a-potties and waiting to cross the finish line first.
A man in India was arrested for animal abuse and torture on suspicion of having sex with at least 3 cows after one of the animals died a day later.


Tide Pod Challenge- Enough Said

For some dumb reason teens and young “adults” have been making YouTube videos of themselves putting Tide laundry detergent pods in their mouths. The soap, the additives, and even the dissolvable coating are all highly toxic to humans and can cause blindness, paralysis, and in some cases death. But whatever gets more clicks on your channel. Right kid?
