Yeeeaaahh… this is one of those, my brain doesn’t know how to brain kind of episodes. I just jump all over the place. That’s about all I can say. I think I talked about Angry Birds… What was I thinking? Your guess is as good as mine…
I didn’t plan it this way, but it’s time for the “Guest of The Month!” And because I wasn’t planning to record yet, and she was bored, I’m talking to my wife, ReAnna. (Seriously, recording this was all her idea.) As much as I love my my guest episodes, I’m always excited when my wife wants to sit down and record, because no matter what we’re talking about, we’re still being silly and giving each other crap the entire time.
This time around we’re going deeper into what we’ve had going on around the house during the age of Corona. We talk more about “distance learning” and just looking forward to school coming back next year. ReAnna shares her college journey from curious history major through theater and now graduating from ASU with an education degree on her way to a Master’s in Library Science.
For part 2 of my interview with Matt Heyman of “PreRecorded Live,” it’s all about food. I’m a cook. Matt is a trained chef. We can talk food about as much as we can talking podcasting. As a matter of fact, this half of the conversation is the reason I split it into two episodes in the first place. No trigger warning this week except to say, maybe don’t listen if you’re hungry.
(Psssssttttt…. The rest of the info is the same as part 1)
The March Guests Of The Month are Lisa and Sam from I Shake My Head with Lisa and Sam. Like all of my guests, we talk a little about podcasting, how they do their show, our pod-friends, and how we became friends in the first place. In classic Lisa and Sam fashion, we geek out over donuts, spring training baseball, we get into Lisa’s hangups about food, and I make a case for why I should be their designated “Merican,” or at least their “Mexcan-Merican.” As always, tangents abound. For their podcast recommendation they suggest a fellow Canadian podcast, “Nooks and Crannies.”
“I Shake My Head” follows the decades long friendship of two goofy women from Saskatoon who find themselves having some of their best conversations in the car! Yes, they actually record in Sam’s car, “Betty.” It’s not especially deep, or political. But, they don’t want to make you think. They just want to make you laugh and be the least stressful part of your day.
Soooo what had happened was… I was sick and was coughing a lot and choked on a piece of popcorn and I cracked my ribs. But there’s still a couple jackasses to make fun of and a couple of badass women to talk about for this week’s Recommended Listening feature, The Wayward Podcast.
There are no words to describe what happens when my family comes on the podcast other than pure chaos. This week I’m joined by my sister, Raevyn Lunatik, and her daughter, Little Jae Sinclair. These are professional names of course. Raevyn, apart from being my oldest sister, is also a skater for the AZ Derby Dames and a personal trainer. She is here both for fun but also to announce the launch of LunatikFitness.com and her Lunatik Fit Camps. Little Jae Sinclair is a rising star in the Phoenix and Los Angeles burlesque and fetish dance scene. She can be found performing with both traditional burlesque and horror/ fetish style groups throughout the Phoenix and Los Angeles area.

I’m getting a little “Meta” this week. (Is that how you use that?) This week I’m taking on podcasting as a virus/ addiction. I go from initial infection of the podcasting bug, to infecting others, to growing into the podcaster strain and replicating it and spreading to even more people. Whether you’re just consuming or are creating, there is no escaping it. Once you’ve been infected with the podcast, there’s no going back, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
