Odd Dad Out: "Normal Is Not My Specialty"
298 Episodes
Reverse
This week is a weird one. I'm not gonna lie. After some health talk, I get into our recent TV habits, including the new Hulu series "Only Murders In The Building." I give a brief garden update, and a heads up on our upcoming fall camping trip. Then the news takes an unexpected turn into the world of genital manipulation and I just can't seem to escape. Not even when I get into how Skrillex's music can repel mosquitos. Did I mention it got weird? I'm pretty sure I mentioned it got weird...Leave me a voicemail: (516) 636-7631Join the Facebook Group Oddballs: Friends of The Odd Dad Outhttps://www.facebook.com/groups/odddadoutBuy Me A Coffeehttp://buymeacoffee.com/odddadoutFollow Along on Social athttps://www.twitter.com/odddadout/https://www.facebook.com/odddadout/https://www.instagram.com/odddadout
I'm sounding a little different this week on account of spending my drive home from work singing my head off to "The Commitments" soundtrack. I expand on a blog post I wrote this week about my difficulty recording the podcast recently. Plus, a return of the news featuring a suspicious social media post and a crafty artist. And a big announcement about myself and the next season of "The Rise Of King Asilas."Join the Facebook Group Oddballs: Friends of The Odd Dad Outhttps://www.facebook.com/groups/odddadoutBuy Me A Coffeehttp://buymeacoffee.com/odddadoutFollow Along on Social athttps://www.twitter.com/odddadout/https://www.facebook.com/odddadout/https://www.instagram.com/odddadout

Leave Me a Voicemail ‪(516) 636-7631‬ (ODO-POD1)I don't even know what happened this week.I started out talking about my boys being in Summer school and playing games. I sidetracked into playing sports in school when I was a kid. Veered into teaching my boys taekwondo. I also taught them about how mosquitos spread malaria via a very odd ice cream metaphor. I realized that beyond potty training, nobody teaches you squat about parenting. And I think I landed on an existential crisis.

"Coffee" Go to https://www.buymeacoffee.com/odddadout to buy me a coffee and keep me awake, because sleep is overrated anyway.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.

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.

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...Also, I was featured on episode 250 of the "Succotash" podcast."Celebrating 10 years this year, Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, was launched with the idea of promoting comedy soundcasts in what was then a marketplace still trying to find its way. By featuring short clips of shows being produced by funny folks both known and unknown, we like to feel that we maybe had a little tiny, eeny weeny, itsy bitsy bit to do with helping to ignite the torch of soundcasts across the globe! (But then we've always had a rather high opinion of ourselves...)"https://succotash.libsyn.com/Leave Me a Voicemail ‪(516) 636-7631‬ (ODO-POD1)Join the Facebook Group Oddballs: Friends of The Odd Dad Outhttps://www.facebook.com/groups/odddadoutDonate on Patreonhttp://patreon.com/join/odddadoutFollow Along on Social athttps://www.twitter.com/odddadout/https://www.facebook.com/odddadout/https://www.instagram.com/odddadout
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.If you want to know more about the 5th Annual Livestream For The Cure, go to http://livestreamforthecure.com/Leave Me a Voicemail ‪(516) 636-7631‬ (ODO-POD1)Join the Facebook Group Oddballs: Friends of The Odd Dad Outhttps://www.facebook.com/groups/odddadoutDonate on Patreonhttp://patreon.com/join/odddadoutFollow Along on Social athttps://www.twitter.com/odddadout/https://www.facebook.com/odddadout/https://www.instagram.com/odddadout

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.

Joined by one of the finest stand-ups on the British circuit and self-confessed coffee snob Carl Donnelly (as well as fastidious father and son Patreon judging team David and Tyler), we enjoy tales of furious Ottoman emperors, how the CIA enjoy their coffee and the hollow depths of Melbourne hipster coffee culture
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.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.

Full show notes athttps://odddadoutpodcast.com/third-times-the-charm-odo-197After 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."Less Is Morguehttps://lessismorgue.com/"The Unwritable Rant"https://theunwritablerant.com/https://www.youtube.com/juliettemirandaThe “Unwritable Rant” is a monologue style, semi-autobiographical, storytelling show, hosted by author, Juliette Miranda. Every Sunday, Juliette cracks open a bottle of her favorite liquor and shares the many many many… tales of often alcohol infused crazy that just seem to encompass her entire existence. Whether it’s the trail of questionable musicians she’s dated, her mom the witch and dad the physicist (explain that one to me,) or her zany cast of friends, Juliette’s pool of WTF stories runeth over.Earlier episodes also began with a sampling and review of different whiskies. Although I am not much of a drinker, I will say her descriptions of the flavor notes of bourbons made me really consider trying them. If only to understand what the hell she was talking about.It’s just good dirty drunken funLook, if you can’t handle dirty words or mature content, this podcast is not for you. And obviously it is NOT family friendly. But if you don’t mind some foul-mouthed tales of sex, drugs, and rock and roll, I guarantee you will enjoy this show. Between the crazy characters, the ridiculous situations, the emotional swings, and the overall good vibes in the stories, there’s no reason not to listen to this show, unless of course you’re a prude. As much as I like the whiskey reviews and interview content as content, I just don’t feel like they necessarily belonged in this podcast with it’s regular stories. Either way, it’s a must listen from me every week.

https://odddadoutpodcast.com/braces-for-a-bug-odo-196Howdy 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."Recommended ListeningThe Box of Odditieshttps://www.theboxofoddities.com/The Good:Excellent Sound QualityHighly InformativeWell ResearchedWide Variety of TopicsTwice Weekly ReleasesBumpers Don’t Get StaleGreat ChemistryAuthenticity- No PhoniesDamn FunnyNot Above Self-DeprecationThe Bad:Stories Can Get GraphicAd Breaks Can Get Pretty LongCan Veer Into the PoliticalThe Verdict:Four StarsAfter I was introduced to the Box of Oddities, it quickly became one of my regular “must listen” podcasts. It’s been well established on my own podcast that I love weird stuff, and this show scratches that “weird shit” itch very thoroughly.Of course, no show is perfect. And no show is for everyone. But also, the subject matter variety in The Box of Oddities is suited to only a certain niche of people. I happen to be that kind of person, but I can also see where it could be very off-putting for some people. The listener base for this show is a bit more narrow than most, but if you are at all the kind of person that appreciates the strange and unusual, you absolutely need to open the lid and peer inside “The Box of Oddities.”-SUPPORT THE SHOW-MERCH and Art https://shop.odddadoutpodcast.com(I checked, it works)Leave Me a Voicemail ‪(516) 636-7631‬ (ODO-POD1)Join the Facebook Group Oddballs: Friends of The Odd Dad Outhttps://www.facebook.com/groups/odddadoutDonate on Patreonhttp://patreon.com/join/odddadoutFollow Along on Social athttps://www.twitter.com/odddadout/https://www.facebook.com/odddadout/https://www.instagram.com/odddadout
