ODO 103: Total Chaos w/ Mike Jolitz

This week I am joined by my first ever remote guest, my Surprise Mfers brother, Mike Jolitz. Much less an interview and more just a couple buddies having a chat, we somehow cover all of the regular show segments. Of course, things get derailed far more easily than in regular episodes and there’s way more toilet humor. We talk podcasting, news, comedy, kids, teachers, military experience, and more. Of course we get interrupted by kids, and dogs, and all other sorts of “Mr. Mom” type racket.  And finally, we wrap up with one of Mike’s favorite podcasts, Afterburn 739.



ODO 86: Yule Time, Christmas Shopping, and New Ideas For 2018

 This week I’m breaking format completely. No news, no Jackass Of The Week, no Recommended Listening. I’m going old school for the last show of the year and just vamping. I get into my returning to work while healing from my rib injuries, what we did for our Yule holiday, checking out Christmas lights, trying to go shopping on Christmas Day, and what I want to do with the show for next year.
 In 2018 I would like to start using the Recommended Listening segment to feature podcast submissions from listeners. I can only suggest so many shows personally, and I want to hear what you are listening to. Send me you recommendations/ reviews either written or in audio form to odddadout@gmail.com. I am turning the segment over to you, dear listener. As a bonus, if you submit a feature to me for the show, I will put all of those together and draw one out to win some Odd Dad Out Swag. 
Happy New Year! I hope to see you in 2018. Thank You and Goodnight…

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.

ODO 71: C U Next Tueday


This week I got both a good laugh and a painful lesson from listening to She Podcasts. Warning, don’t teach your Mexican co-worker what  “See You Next Tuesday” means. Spoilers: it doesn’t end well. I’ve also got eclipse news, dead bodies in strange places, a workplace affair gone horribly wrong, and by far the worst way to find out your spouse is cheating. All that, and I revisit a previous feature for it’s spinoff podcast, Movie Maintenance Presents.


Because the Bible describes the Sun and Moon as “Signs” this guy thinks that the Moon covering up the Sun is a sign that God is being covered up by the works of Satan, or something like that.
French scientists released research showing how male clown-fish, like Marlin in “Finding Nemo,” will change from male to female if their mate dies. Also clown-fish apparently never leave their homes.

Artist Stephanie Rose has decided to oppose selfie culture in a “special” way. She takes what she’s dubbed “StefDies.” She drops, face down, dead in random locations, some major tourist spots, and has a picture taken. She says that people need to stop being part of the camera and be start being part of the picture.

If somebody dies in a NYC subway, the policy is to get the body removed quickly and get business back up and running ASAP. Apparently this also means that when they bag and tag a body, they dump it in the nearest, out of public view, area around. This often ends up being the subway workers’ break rooms or random storage closets.
  • Officer Fired And Arrested After Getting Pregnant From Inmate

A former corrections officer is 6 months pregnant and facing 10 years in prison on rape and corruption charges after having an affair with an inmate for over a year.


  • Illinois Man Books Prostitute, Too Bad It Was His Wife
An Illinois man was left in shock when the prostitute he booked through his favorite web service turned out to be his wife. She was equally shocked to find out of his habit of hiring prostitutes.
