ADHD Gardening Moments: ODO 205

This week I have a, longer than planned, garden update, a mini rant about “autism” and “ADHD” being umbrella terms, and a landscaping whoopsie that is a result of my own ADHD tendencies.
Plus, I pontificate on the lurking thoughts about quitting this show in order to start any number of other podcast ideas. And in an impromptu podcast recommendation, I briefly discuss “Succotash: The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast.”

*This episode is brought to you by “Coffee.” When you just need to stay up for 2 more hours. “Coffee” Go to https://www.buymeacoffee.com/odddadout to buy me a coffee and keep me awake, because sleep is overrated anyway.

A Little Show About Little Things: ODO 204

I’m a little lower energy this week. Just a bit tired so I keep things short for once. But “holy mashed potatoes Batman!” I actually have a general theme this week. It’s all about the little things that have dominated my life this week. Starting with flowers on my pumpkins and watermelons going into my very first successfully grown potatoes, and ending with our new kitten.
A little show full of little things

How Did I Even Get Here? ODO 203

It’s another one of those, train of thought falling off the tracks, kind of weeks.
What I can tell you is that my brain goes all over the place with topics and thoughts. What I can’t tell you is how exactly I got from where I started to where I ended up.

I know I talked about fixing up my office and my wife’s job. Somehow I got into the various responsibilities of my pets. I think I touch on my content production schedule, my existence as a walking series of contradictions, and something about my “regular” job. I know there’s more in there, and I know there is some sort of logical thread that strings point A to point Q somehow, but I can’t tell you what that is in a logical fashion.
It’s just another silly night for my brain. But I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned ​the tagline for this podcast is “Normal is not my specialty.” Just saying…

Peak Adulting and Nick Jr Nostalgia: ODO 202

It’s another silly brain week. But this week I came to the realization that I may have reached peak adulting. Honestly I may be a little too excited about my new rake and my wife’s new office chair. We also spent most of the week binging and introducing our boys to the Nickelodeon shows of our childhood via the new Paramount+ streaming service. I’ve gotta admit that I get a bit defensive of my TV nostalgia after a bit. But I stand by all of it.

School Days and An Earth Shaking Gender Reveal: ODO 201

I’m feeling a little silly this week. I don’t know why, but I was just in a giggly mood through this whole episode. Maybe it was the long night. Maybe it was the instant coffee at 3 am. I was just in a goofy mood. So try as I might to talk about the boys going back to on-campus school, I just tangented all over the place. Badass grilled cheese, sibling rivalry, Queen Elizabeth, and other random brain farts. As well as a return of “BS From the News” with a pirate Airbnb, a divorce over penis size, and another catastrophic gender reveal. Enjoy!

Episode 200!! Weird Ass Q&A

I can’t believe I made it to Episode 200!! Granted, I should have hit this milestone last summer. (Thanks Corona.) It’s such an amazing accomplishment for any podcast to reach this many episodes. I can’t believe I actually made it this far. I’m so humbled that there’s anybody still listening to my weird ass after all this time. I want to thank each and every one of you who has listened over the last 5+ years that got me to this point.

That said, I decided that in honor of my 200th episode, I would do a little Q&A session. So I reached out and got some, let’s just say, “interesting” questions from some listeners. I’m not going to go through all of them here. You’ll just have to listen to the episode. *wink* But I am going to talk about some of my favorites.

Weekend At Patagonia’s: ODO 199

For the sake of trying my best to focus on something, This week is all about our latest experience in mini-vacationing. We took a little spring break trip to a cabin at the Patagonia Lake State Park. Long story short, it was a gorgeous view of a beautiful lake in southern Arizona with hiking trails, lots of birdwatching, and lots of campfire cooking. It was also freezing balls, windy as hell, and I was constantly being dragged around by an annoyingly curious husky. Oh yeah, and there were wild cows. Wanna know more? Listen to the episode.
Plus an update on some format changes I’m considering, and a reminder to get me your questions for my attempted episode 200 Q&A. If you don’t give me your Q’s, I can’t give you any A’s.

Third Time’s The Charm: ODO 197

After a few abandoned attempts at this episode, I give a much shorter rundown of my experience getting Covid. I throw in an impromptu “What Adam’s Listening To” about “Less Is Morgue.” I plead for your podcast suggestions. And I finally give you my formal review of “The Unwritable Rant.

Braces For A Bug: ODO 196

Howdy there Oddballs! I’m gonna try my best this week to try and keep things to just a couple topics. Whether that actually happens is anyone’s guess. On that note, we recently had a major trip to the dentist for one of our little monsters, and the outcome is going to get expensive. Also, I’ve got my more in depth review of “The Box Of Oddities.” And in my new “What’s Adam Listening to/ Watching” segement, my wife and I just finished binging the Netflix series, “Bridgerton.”

Let’s Finish Catching Up: ODO 195

In the last episode I started to talk about all of the things that I’ve been up to during the hiatus, before getting thumb deep into a bloody mess. This time the plan is to give you the rest of the update that I meant to give last time. And oh boy! Do I have a lot of stuff to share with you! I’m not gonna cover everything right now. We all know that would take hours and I’m completely capable of doing it. Instead, I’ll hit some high points, and if you want to hear more about something, you can just let me know.
And finally, an update on how the featured podcast segment is changing, and my first rebooted podcast review feature is going to, my very first audio drama love, “Welcome to Night Vale.”
