Recieved a great listerner call on Work/Life balance, then a follow up from the same caller.  This guy knows what he's talking about, and is very highly respected by his peers.  He works in a D.A.'s office for a major metro area, and keeps a flow chart on his office door regarding contacting him after hours; I've included it as this episode's artwork.

Anyway, his comments made me think of Amber Schroader's commen...

Cyber Security and Digital Evidence Acquisition & Analysis are two critical fields when it comes to our future, yet far too few undergraduate and graduate programs exist for the latter; specifically the fastest growing sub-discipline of the latter, Digital Multimedia Evidence.

As a pioneer of Digital & Multimedia Forensics I've literally spent thousands upon thousands of hours critically reviewing horrific video, image a...

That's Andy in the picture with President Biden.  He's one of the most amazing chefs I've ever known, and brother of another amazing chef, Rob.

Still haven't heard from M3, and I'm beyond concerned.  Decided to check in with Rob & Melissa to calm my nerves.

Sending love, always!

 M3 breaks out the harmonica again to cover Neil Young's "Heart of Gold"  while sitting at home under lockdown.

"Heart of Gold" is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young. Released from the 1972 album Harvest, it is so far Young's only U.S. No. 1 single. In Canada, it reached No. 1 on the RPM national singles chart for the first time on April 8, 1972, on which date Young held the top spot on both the ...

Listen, some of my best advice here; if you haven't already, buy your spouse a heated toilet seat.  Trust me on this, best gift ever...she thanks me every, single day! 

It's been a hot minute since our last episode, so forgive the mistakes on the board during this one.

Anyway, I catch up with Mom on Easter Sunday, then M3 busts out the harmonica for us.  A few links related to this show:

    My thoughts about RBG's passing, and the President and First Lady being diagnosed with COVID-19.

    Then M3 and Stacy join me for nonsense, including chat about how some sports memorabilia from my childhood reappeared after about 30 years last week; autographs, baseball, basketball and football cards from the 70's & '80's.

    I do enjoy hearing her laugh, my mom.  Makes me feel good.  You don't get to hear it much here, because it's a crappy cellphone connection, but it sure was great to hear.

    Here's some advice from us on what not to say during a job interview.  

    Sometimes brutal honesty isn't appreciated.  Just sayin'

    Hope you had a great weekend my friends!

     Sorry, but M3 cracks me the hell up. Chatting on our cellphones last night, with terrible reception.

    This may not be funny to you, as the whole Red Forman for President thing has been played out, but remember...

    I don't give a shit what you think. 😆

    Just kidding, of course. See how this works?

    The call made me laugh. Writing this post made me laugh. Thinking of you shaking your head at us & rolling your eyes like Stacy...

    • If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

    • Dr. Death

      We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
