Laundry Apocalypse w/ Donna From “Broken Compass” Podcast

It’s guest time again Oddballs. This time I have Donna Johnson from the “Broken Compass” podcast, which is a very new podcast featuring Donna and her best friend Angela talking about, well, all of the things they like to talk about. It’s a little bit true crime, a little bit conspiracies, and a little bit just a couple of moms bullshitting. Like me, Donna is the stay-at-home parent to her two boys, so this conversation gets way into all of the “fun” of being a parent that they just don’t warn you about.

Practical Valentine’s Chores: ODO 175

It’s Valentine’s Day! For some it’s a time to get romantic and maybe shower your significant other with gifts. For me, it’s kinda complicated. First off I have no clue what to get my wife. All of the standard gifts either wont work or are too expensive. That and I’m just too financially practical to justify spending the money for a lot of things.


Then I get into my kids’ outright refusal to clean their bedrooms, even to the point of doing other chores that they aren’t responsible for, just so they don’t have to do the ones that they are.

Finally, another founding member of the Podfix network has announced their ending. We’re saying goodbye to “Weird With You.”

Robot Sharks and Ceiling Fans: ODO 173

This week, I decided to flex my daddy DIY skills and install a few ceiling fans in the house. Unfortunately I’ve never actually done it before, and my arms are sore AF. Ironically, while I’m being so productive in one way, I’m also being lazy because we just bought a robot vacuum. And I give some updates on some changes coming to the show.

Friends From Down Under w/ Paul Przytula From the Countdown Podcast: ODO 170

*Sorry about the delay folks. Moving is a pain
This week I have my conversation with Paul Przytula from “the Countdown Movie and TV Reviews) podcast. This was originally recorded as part of NAPODPOMO, but I just got too busy to put it together. I’m not gonna lie, I do way too much of the talking in this episode. This is a prime example of why I should have talking points for guests, if only to shut myself up. I need to get Paul back on sometime so I can do less of the talking. Either way, enjoy!

Kate Wallinga- Ignorance Is Bliss: NAPODPOMO -Ep 12

Today’s NAPODPOMO gift is my more formal chat with Kate Wallinga from “Ignorance Is Bliss” and “Lifeworld.” This is actually the conversation that we originally sat down to have back in September that turned into my October guest of the month episode. That being said, if you’ve listened to that, you may notice some overlapping beats.

We’re Buying A House: NAPODPOMO- Day 6

It’s day 6 of NAPODPOMO, and I’ll just cut right to the chase. The reason I didn’t release an episode on Monday the 4th was because last week we began the process of buying a home. After a post-Halloween visit to a new housing community going up nearby, my wife made the executive decision to pull the trigger on attempting to buy our first house. So now, we’re all sorts of busy.

It’s Day 5 of NAPOPOMO and it’s time for some “BS From The News:”
(Trigger warning pssshhh: I use a looootttt of F-bombs in this rant. You’re welcome.)

Man Stabbed To Death Over Popeye’s Chicken Sandwich

A Maryland man was stabbed to death during an argument outside a Popeye’s restaurant. A large line had formed of people wanting to get the, now infamous, Popeye’s chicken sandwich. Apparently the argument began over somebody cutting in line and escalated to the point of one man stabbing another. Authorities attempted life saving measures, but the man later died at a local hospital.

We Are A Bunch Of Narcissists w/ Kate Wallinga: ODO 168

It’s that time again. Where I have one of my podcaster friends on to talk about whatever comes up. This month it’s Kate Wallinga from “Ignorance Was Bliss” and “Lifeworld.” Except this time she was invited to be part of November’s National Podcast Post Month interviews. After editing down that episode, all the stuff “left on the cutting room floor” was just too good to throw away, and made for a pretty good episode itself. Of course, we talk podcasting, but also about the relationships we’ve formed from the podcast community, and the psychological side of why we do this crazy thing called podcasting. In a nutshell, “we’re all narcissists.”
