    This episode pretty much has it all - unintentional cannibalism, stupid criminals, plasic surgery gone wrong, and an attack with hot grits! Where else could you possibly get a mix of stories like this?

    Check out the NWB Youtube channel HERE to see video short takes. Think single news stories that are maybe about 2 minutes or so. Also, full episodes are released there in audio-only format. I'm also experimenting with posting th...

    Well, here we are back again with more news from the seedy underbelly of this rock that we all live on. Sure, there are stories about defecation, hammer attacks (not the rapper), and racists, but there are bright spots on the horizon... I hope...

    I continue to hope that my schedule will open up to the point that I can start publishing new episodes more frequently than every 4-6 weeks - my fingers are crossed! I also hope to start...

    Yes, that title reflects an actual "thing"... Just wait until you hear what the Stedji Brewery in Iceland puts in to their Whale Beer, and how they actually make it! On a side note, if anybody has any connections in Iceland and they can send me a sample bottle, let me know!

    With all of the seriousness going on in the world with the COVID Delta Variant and what is going on in Afghanistan, it is nice to know that there are ...

    Another round up of oddities for your enjoyment... The highlight...errr...lowlight is no doubt the PETA performance - check below for the youtube video. And the next time you're at the store, be sure to pick up one of those comically large logs of gound beef. You know, for home defense and all.

    As always, thanks for checking the show out - I hope that you enjoy listening as much as I enjoy putting this together!

    So here I am back again with another collection of oddities. While there are a fewer number of stories this episode, a couple of them are longer than usual, so it all evens out in the end. First off, when you think about it, things really have to be bad for a criminal to call the cops on his victim, right? That is a weird convergence of carjacking and irresponsible parenting… And it is unbelievable what action the Egyptian governme...

    So here we are...  and where have we been?   Well, I cannot use COVID nor the recent crazy political climate we have experienced here in the States as excuses.  This one is on me.   My day job has kept be extraordinarily busy, to the point that I was working quite a few evenings to get caught up on some time sensitive stuff.   Of course, there are the extra work projects that I am a part of that have been eating at my time too. Non...

    Well, yet another episode with a story or two that kind of left me speechless... and one that caused my physical discomfort. By the story titles, can you guess which one?

    And this begs the question... if you volunteer for something or seek it out, can you later really be called a victim?

    I recorded this episode on Thanksgiving night, so I was full of ham, mac & cheese, other miscellaneous sides, and a Russian River Blind Pi...

    And we are back with another episode!  Apologies since the extended delay since the last episode!  I thought that it would be the perfect time to completely start the website over again which is still not done as of this writing...

    But as you will soon hear, strange tihngs come to those who wait!

    In this episode...

     - Don’t forget your clothes in the drive-thru  - See-through public toilets in japan  - Woman Beat Father Over ...
