ODO 46: Nerding Out And Super Moms

This week I’ve got  a story about a mom who built her entire family home by hand using YouTube. I’ll cover some fun entertainment news, and in “Recommended Listening” I’ll probably spend more time talking about this week’s show than it takes to listen to it.

New Power Rangers Trailer shows EVERYTHING

-Recommended Listening-


Normally I’d write something about the show but Emily puts it so perfectly herself:


The extraordinary history of the ordinary. Do you like trivia and fun facts? Have you lost hours to Wikipedia rabbit holes? Do you ever wonder about the history of everyday things in your world? The Story Behind … is the show for you! Warning: Your friends might tire of you starting sentences with, “I learned on a podcast …” 

I am a fan of strange trivia, and this show has that in spades. Whether it’s the many origins of pretzels, or a deep dive into the legend that is Betty White, Emily always delivers great information with just a pinch of humor. Her pun game could only be matched by my wife’s. You will come out of every episode smiling having learned something cool. Five stars all the way.



“Small Things is a project that was started in late 2016. The idea was there for a while but we only decided to act upon it once my studies were complete. The aim is to do daily random Small Things that will make a big difference in the world and share my journey along the way. We hope that Small Things will be able help others who also want to make a difference in the world. We believe that if enough of us do Small Things then the world will be changed for the better.”
