Thank God Cancer Saved our Divorce

Thank God Cancer Saved our Divorce

Could you do a podcast with your ex AND your new spouse? Armed with nothing but a microphone, Denny defends himself from Jamie (the ex-wife) and Amanda (the new wife) as they discuss life, parenting, divorce, and overcoming CANCER with their shared daughter, Audrey. As parents they discuss dealing with relationships, adoption, cancer, divorce, step-kids…..all of it. This is a podcast about life, family, and "parenting without excuses"!

What makes this week stand out? Well, this podcast is what happens when you DON'T have a great guest.

Join us this week as we can't even get through introductions before we Denny says..."off the rails". We talk birthdays, birthday trivi...

So this week we cut the "fat" outta the podcast! No TGCSOD Family Fantasy Football Update. No Dating Profiles...nothing!

But, guess what....that doesn't mean they didn't get recorded :)

Now, there's a few "mistakes". Brayden is off site and the delay is throwing him off, so he steps on some introductions!

Jamie is half paying attention and Amanda...well Amanda wants to blow your eardrums out by coughing.....

This week we had a game time change! 

Brandon will be back soon and this week BOTH Jamie and Brayden CALLED OUT! Their pay will definitely reflect this change.

So, we called an audible. This week we discuss "Back to School Anxiety". Kids, parents, teachers.....there's always SOME anxiety. 

We also look back to Denny and Amanda's childhood....obviously at different times :).

We will be back to full strength next week. We...

Through the magic of technology we are able to bring you this week's podcast from three different locations!

From the "Every Joke Has A Little Truth" studio in Russiaville, Jamie's house in Kokomo, and Braydens house in Tipton we discussed "the week that was " & our usual sophomoric games.

Special thanks this week to Tabbi Ann, friend of the show, as she recorded some audio clips that enhanced a couple of ...

You guessed 's a re-run! Don't worry, we'll get a fresh pod out Tuesday....stick around! 

 Until then, it's a FIRST! 

This week Father's Day caught us! It was SO busy celebrating Dads!

It's little ole me in the studio this week. It's also Fathers Day this week.

This week I decided to share what is possibly the best gift I've ever received for any holiday. The audio is all over the place.....transitions aren't tight...levels are off. In spite of all that, it's perfect.

Maybe this will bore most to tears. If it does, then I guess we'll both have them, but for different reasons.

Nothing more to say here besides....sorry. 

We have been COVERED UP busy the last few days. The "Every Joke Has A Little Truth" Studio was cleaned and we didn't even talk about it! 

This episode is a look into Jamie's mind if Amanda is is driving the bus. Think on that.

Better content next week, promise!

This is not a lot to explain.....our society is in a TOUGH place right now.

This week the group talks about kids coming back home! This can happen for SO many reasons:
1. Divorce or break up
2. Money issues
3. Help parents
4. Building or in transition

Now, to be clear, we as parents will nearly ALWAYS take our babies back home....but what are the POSSIBLE ramifications of that? It's not always pretty.

We're lucky in that we have GREAT kids and we love having them around....

    Bone Valley is a 9-episode true crime podcast. New episodes are available for free every Wednesday. In 1987, 18-year-old Michelle Schofield was found dead in a phosphate pit in Florida. Two years later, her husband Leo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Fifteen years later, previously unidentified fingerprints matched Jeremy Scott--a violent teenager who lived nearby. Jeremy has since confessed to Michelle’s murder. Yet Leo Schofield remains behind bars. In this groundbreaking podcast, Bone Valley host Gilbert King uncovers startling new evidence that Jeremy is responsible for a string of murders. King is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Devil in the Grove, which led to the exonerations of four innocent men.
