This is a podcast about this, that and the other. My takes on life, society, politics, and whatever else happens to cross my mind. Regular segments on Cooking, moving out, stupidity, and other themes.
There will be interviews about everything from movies to restaurants, dinner to drinks, games to sports.....this is starting to sound like a date, isn't it? If you want to be a guest or recommend one let me know. If there is something you want us to talk about just send a message. It's all fair game and it HAS to be said.

In this interview I talk with Dr. Katherine Sheffield, host of A Few Bad Apples podcast.

In this episode I give my take on a certain athlete I find to be severely over rated, and his particularly obnoxious and irresponsible use of his status and break down some things we are all overlooking about officer involved shootings.

Another officer involved shooting. Another tragedy. Another "mass shooting."  This one hit close to home for me. I had family that was there. Was it someone snapping or a beef between individuals with no consideration for bystanders? They are not saying yet. Now is not the time to push agendas. Now is not the time to keep driving a divide deeper into this country. This is not a time to try and push your beliefs onto others, in case you haven't noticed by now that doesn't work. We need to look at the root of the problems, not the symptoms. We need to be aware of how this will be used to drive policies and plans with out actually fixing anything. Also, in a lighter note I answer some Q & A questions after the break. Being serious all the time is unhealthy.  A shout out to the podcasters that submitted questions for me to answer. Film Rage Podcast, Weird Distractions Podcast, Name Taken Podcast. They are all good shows that you should be checking out. #growup #Stoptheviolence #supportindiepodcasts #WTFpeople --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast.
In this episode I am going to go a little further into a matter that has brought me some flack from both sides. I know shocker right? The simple fact of the matter is the world is not black and white. Trying to cram things into boxes never really works and people need to start seeing things from a more open perspective. And honestly coming at me with your definition of an absolute is never going to work out the way you play it out in your head. Ever.  Featured Podcast spot this week : The Culture Quest Podcast: Part of @allthenetwork We're on a quest to become cultured!

More whack jobs are doing whack job things. Asian hate is a thing, and I will touch on it, but I am not Asian and can't speak to the experience If you want to hear a better take on it from somebody check out this link. They say it better than I ever could. Want to donate? go to Cant donate? Just be decent. If you see something shitty happening, speak up shitty people are usually cowards.  In this episode I will talk about what I have an issue with the people who are using these tragedies to push their agenda, particularly the gun-grabbers. If you want to address the issue lets talk mental health instead.  Also some things I'm excited about and another endorsement for the indie podcast community. Seriously why not come out and play with us?

So in this episode I am going to talk a bit about one of the original sins, if that is the kind of thing you believe in anyway.  Personally I don't always think pride is a bad thing, but there are good kinds, and less good. Guess which ones I focus on. Seriously, it can be an uncomfortable matter, but that's the whole point, isn't it? Featured Podcast: Not Before Coffee.

You ever overhear something that just pisses you off? By now you know I do, and today I want to address something that really just irks the hell out of me. It is something I never understood and particularly in today's times it is an attitude that just seems SO self absorbed that it just raises my ire. Also I will address something that is happening, and it is not something I feel good about. It is real, it is dangerous, and it is getting worse. Today's featured podcast spot is A Few Bad Apples. It is a great true crime program that ends with a positive example that is in my regular listening rotation, and it should be in yours too.

Look, I'm probably as sick of talking about politics as you are of hearing about them. Unfortunately until things settle down in this country it will be something that is on my mind. But this episode will touch on a slightly broader base as well as we will discuss some of the issues when capitalism and politics travel in the same handcart.  The featured podcast promo this episode is the Hush Hush Society Conspiracy hour on twitter @HHSConspiracy and available where ever you get your podcast fix. #2020month13 #frigginpandemic #stilldontgethashtags
