Diary of a Bald Man

Diary of a Bald Man

A podcast for those burning old bridges, developing the perfect chicken and dumpling recipe, racing through life at the speed of dark, and making changes they never thought possible. It's for the underdogs who love to bark, and have to put their tooth in to bite.

For many of us, the first step is often the most challenging part of any endeavor or journey in life. But for one man to inspire others to take that first step and drive onward without a final distance or destination is an even more challenging task. That is until they meet and speak with Mateusz “Matt” Marcinowski.

Originating in Poland, now hitting the roads of Massachusetts, Matt Marcinowski is breaking down the mental and physi...

Now that I am 55 – I realize that I have far surpassed my personal expiration date.

In this episode, let us focus on slowing down and altering the constant mental race to perfection, happiness, or misery – It’s a race that will never end because there are no goals in sight.

Everything is in our mind.

Well we can now close off the first season of the podcast, and close the curtains on 2022. It has been a strange and amazing year for many – our ability to purchase and provide Narcan, while those with life threatening allergies suffer on the side while their coworker overdoses for the third time. Who and what influences us to be better, or to do great things is accomplished when we open our minds, and turn off the social media bar...

The Thinning Grey Line looks at the climbing number of Gen X alums who are no longer with us. What, outside of the dramatic increase of diabetes, colon cancer, breast cancer, alcoholism, and opiods are causing this rocketing issue?

In the age of Social Media and instant information, with AI surging, who will be left behind to prevent the adults of tomorrow from being led into mental slaughter? This generation obsessed with getting ...

To say that the start of November would be dull is a total lie. Not only did we lose daylight savings, we have the elections, hurricanes off of Florida, the lunar eclipse, and a massive load of flu-like symptoms in Tennessee, South Carolina, and Alabama – nothing but fun days ahead.

In this episode, the bald man discusses and informs you on hair care, recordable incidents, and how the Dollar Store can save you from unforeseen suici...

From my time on Wake Island in 2005 through 2007, I had to find a new way to live and survive in an environment to which I was not accustomed.

From the “smooth coffee” that Papa would give me to take the edge off (coffee with Kahlua) to handing out pennies for a safe mindset and sweeping a hallway at 5 am, there are small things and perspectives we can perform, to improve the piece of the world we live in.

You did not know this until today, but former Presidents Abraham Lincoln, Barack Obama, Albert Einstein, Hillary Clinton, the inventor Nicola Tesla, Elon Musk,  the actress Jodie Foster, and many others – plus me, all have one thing in common. We are INTJs.

From the villages of the Philippines in 1974 and throughout my time on Guam from 1978 through 1985, I never met a stranger, just someone I was getting ready to know through...

In this episode you will be reminded the mindset, and focus are derived from not only the music, sounds, and conversations that we take part in, but the level or lack of effort we place on ourselves.

There is nothing that we can not do or accomplish – and I mean nothing. If the damn Wright Brothers could glide their happy asses over Kittyhawk, North Carolina, then you can reach for the heavens and snatch a comet out of orbit.

In this episode you will be reminded that “an apple a day, keeps the doctor away.” To hell with the apple – look what the apple did for Eve, Snow White, or any roasted pig! Yeah, onions will fight bacteria, reduce gut issues, and keep annoying mouth breathers at bay.

Then you find out in the 1800’s, how Dr. John Harvey Kellogg is trying to reduce the act of masturbation through corn flakes, and circumcisions, while at the same time...

People get their inspiration handed to them once, maybe twice in a lifetime. Then, depending on how they absorb it, they fail only to rebuild into something better or bust at the seams and never recover.

In this episode, you will hear from the one and only Sheldon Primus, who not only trained me for the COSS designation but the man who guided me into podcasting and positively influencing others. Did I mention that he developed me i...

For the first time, I interview a guest on the Diary of a Bald Man.

But it is not just any guest, it is the one and only, Chance Roberts.

Chance is not only a published writer, safety professional, former missionary, rancher, farmer, rodeo enthusiast, and black belt in taekwondo, he is a communicator at a level seldom seen in the safety industry.

Listen to how his plans for his future changed after a trip to China, and the inspirat...

I can not even imagine the first man that came up with the idea of manscaping. I could see inventing a new tool or better stereo. But why in the hell did someone decide that deforesting the baby maker assembly was a great idea?

In this episode, you will hear about the tools used to keep my round dome under follicle control and the trend going around to turn your crotch into a meat saber … using fruits.

What do women's tank tops, yoga pants, and banana hammocks have in common? Probably a lot of stares and un-planned mental groping by others.

It doesn't matter if you are showing camel toes or wrapped in a bourka; the viewer's mind will bathe you in hate and discontent or get you more attention than you can imagine.

You are not responsible for how others view you. You are responsible for how you see and feel about yourself.

Merriam Webster defines interruption as:  stoppage or hindering of activity for a time or a break in the continuity of something.

We are often affected by distractions throughout our day, including traffic, work obligations, chores, and other people who moderately interrupt our lives.

But if you think about it, how many times did one of those events prepare you for or prevent another incident from occurring.

The Great Winston Churchill once said, “We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give.”

When we pay it forward, are we doing so by presenting and providing in a positive and uplifting manner? Or are our actions inspired by guilt and personal greed?

As individuals, we can live in the reflections of others, or we can be a vision that inspires and produces greatness in those who see us. Don’t be like the herd of shee...
