International Podcast Day 2020

International Podcast Day

International Podcast Day is September 30. You can find out more about the full day of livestreams and more at

This year I reached out to the podcasting community to ask about their favorite thing about podcasting.

Included are clips from Derek Graziano of “Lifeworld” and “Rolling Misadventures”
Tim from “Radio Clash
Freya from “Your Friend Freya” and “Trashy Romance Pod
Heather from “Sunshine and Powercuts” and the “Sunshine Summit

Thank you as always for listening, and if you get the opportunity, tell a podcaster you listen to that you’re a fan. Trust me. They’ll appreciate it.

Never Too Tired To Talk Podcasting: ODO 122

Download MP3

Super short show this week. I’ve just got that weather change low energy vibe going right now. But that doesn’t stop me from talking podcasting, and giving a quick “Cliff’s Notes” of my livestream on International Podcast Day.
I also rant a bit about the recently announced cancellation of the bankruptcy auction for Toys R Us.
And I crown Lindsay Lohan the Jackass Of The Week over her attempted kidnapping of homeless refugee children in Russia on Instagram. (more…)

Tackling Food Trucks Pt 3: ODO 121

Another month, another trip to the food trucks. This time, we went in with a plan and had the best, most filling trip yet. Speaking of family fun time, monster number 3 got a little bit of social media traction over a video of him watching his favorite team on BattleBots. Plus, I’ve got a Jackass Bridezilla with a big price tag, and a little chat about International Podcast Day.

ODO 76: Vamping About Podcasting

Since I didn’t get to do a special episode for International Podcast Day on Sept 30th, I decided that I would spend this week just talking podcasting.

ODO 75: Cereals, Stoners, and Surprise Mother Effers

I’ll admit it. I love cereal. I especially love those sugar cereals from my childhood. So when General Mills announced that they are going to give us back the original recipe Trix. I got really excited. How excited? Excited enough to devote an entire segment to breakfast cereal. This week’s news brings a recall from Death Wish Coffee, a lawsuit from an armed robbery suspect, and a tie for J.A.W. with a couple a people too inebriated to function. As promised last week, this week’s Recommended Listening  feature goes to my fellow Surprise Mofo, Mike Jolitz.

When consumers complained about artificial colors and flavors in food, the cereal companies responded by replacing all artificial colors and flavorings with natural options. In the case of Trix, the new, natural, recipe resulted in muted colors and bland unpleasant flavors. Now, consumer backlash against the natural Trix has lead General Mills to return to the original recipe.  They have said that they will still sell the natural version for those that prefer it.

After lab test showed the possibility of botulism developing in their cold brew coffee cans, Death Wish Coffee decided to recall all of their cold brew cans as a precaution. Nobody was reported sick from the coffee.

Equifax sent a tweet about how to sign up for their TrustedID service. Instead, the tweet rewrote equifaxsecurity2017 as securityequifax2017, a site tagged for phishing.
FEMA sent a tweet intended to provide people with information on assistance for dealing with damaged roofs. Instead it went to a phone sex hotline. The number was supposed to be a “1-888” number, not a “1-800” number.

A guy goes into a Starbucks with a mask and tries to rob the place. A customer tries to stop him and they scuffle. The customer gets stabbed but then takes the knife and stabs the would be robber multiple times. Now the robber may sue the customer for his injuries.


A couple of hikers had to call for a rescue after they decided to smoke some weed at the peak of their trip and found themselves too stoned to hike back down.
A New Zealand Woman, convicted of drunk driving and public endangerment, showed up so drunk to her sentencing hearing that the judge was unable to complete the hearing at that time. Court staff claimed she was so drunk they would have to carry her into the courtroom. Eventually she received jail time, a suspended license, her car was impounded, and she will have 3 years with a no-alcohol license. 


“My goal is to entertain you each and every show. Now in my second year, this rebooted podcast has interview segments and musical guests. Come back and check the show out again.”

Couch Potato Files

ODO 74: Five A-Holes and An Irish Couch Potato

Doing a segment shuffle this week. I decide to lead with the news, including: a brave proctologist, an artist’s prank that people are still falling for, and a guy who wants a Masters Degree without any of the work. Then I go on a bit of a rant about my taste in alcohol, or more accurately why is it that people give me crap over not really drinking and never doing drugs. Finally, I wrap things up with A-hole number 6 (or is it 7?) Chris the Mole Man from The Couch Potato Files.

Two Florida men were arrested for “allegedly” trying to steal a power pole after Hurricane Irma. By “allegedly” I mean they were found with a pole strapped to their truck.

    These two were caught stealing a JEA pole just this morning! Citizens watching out and officers cleaning up = partnership! #Irma #JSO

    A proctologist gave himself a colonoscopy to understand the pain he was inflicting on his patients. I’ve never had one, but I’ve been told having a hose shoved up your backside with a camera on it, isn’t the most pleasant thing in the world.

    Artist Piero Manzoni canned and sold his own poop to post- WWII art snobs to prove that they would buy anything if you told them it was art. And people are still buying his cans today.

    • N.C. Woman Claims To Make A Spray That Attracts Bigfoot

    For only $7 a bottle you can buy a spray that a woman claims will attract any Bigfoot within a 1 1/2 mile radius. It has yet to work.


    A man paid $8000 so he could have a Master’s Degree that used his life experience to determine that he earned the degree instead of actually studying or attending classes or taking tests. Yet he was surprised to find out it was a fake degree.
