The situation with “distance learning” and the battle over mine and my wife’s schedules has reached a point that we are having to make serious changes. Because of our separate work schedules, it has been very difficult to balance work and our boys’ school lessons. We are now having to look into changing our work schedules to accommodate it all. Ultimately, the issue lies with the need to supervise our younger boys during their scho...

Kind of a follow up to last week's freak out over the upcoming "distance learning" back to school season, this week I'm talking about how it went and how we addressed that pesky issue of when I'm supposed to sleep.

Side note: With Episode 200 coming up soon, what sort of giveaway would you like this time around? Any ideas for what you'd like me to do for the big show? I honestly have no idea. Maybe another li...

Long story short: school is starting back up this week for my boys and it's got me a little freaked out, especially for our new Kindergartner. Add that to not knowing how/if I'm going to get any sleep during the boys school days, how/if I'll have time to manage the podcast, and my half-brained idea to start live streaming the podcast and my art. Yeeeeaaahhh I'm kinda freaking out. Did I mention I'm freaking out?

Our boys have one week left before school starts back up, sort of. And I took a step forward in my "art" by buying a digital drawing tablet. Plus a sneaky little news break and a rundown of the upcoming August 2020 Sunshine Summit.

This week I've got a couple stories for you. First off, I got tested for Corona this week. I'm still waiting on the results by the way. That has lead me to part two where I'm spending my evenings reading "Hank The Cowdog" to my boys. Plus, this week's garden update brought to you by Hank himself.

July 22nd marks the 5th anniversary of the start of this podcast.

Am I feeling a little nostalgic?

Yes.

Did I do an emotional clip show?

HELL NO!! I AINT GOT TIME FOR THAT SHIT


This is prime rambling random train of thought stuff. From show changes caused by the new recording schedule, to binge watching horror movies, a few semi-reviews of some of our recent watches, a rant about the Halloween films, and an impromptu commercial for ...

Yeeeaaahh... this is one of those, my brain doesn't know how to brain kind of episodes. I just jump all over the place. That's about all I can say. I think I talked about Angry Birds... What was I thinking? Your guess is as good as mine.

Before you freak out at the title, no I’m not changing up this show. At least for the most part. Rather, this week’s Recommended Listening will highlight a few podcasts that have changed since the last time I talked about them. Not much “Florida Man” in this week’s news, but a whole lot of stupid. And we’ve recently had to make a major chang...

This week we’re back to a “normal” show with the tale of my 3 day battle with the sun and the sprinklers. The news is back with 4 “Florida Man” stories from this week, and in Recommended Listening, it’s a new show from a past featured host. It’s time to get up and go jogging with Stacey Frost and “Run With Me On This.”

Once again, I try to come back to the show and share my randomness about all things going on in my head. This time around, I explain my office/ recording situation, I get way too excited when I start talking about my gardens, and of course I go on tangent rabbit holes that even get me lost. Just another week with the Odd Dad Out.

I didn't plan it this way, but it's time for the "Guest of The Month!" And because I wasn't planning to record yet, and she was bored, I'm talking to my wife, ReAnna.
(Seriously, recording this was all her idea.)
As much as I love my guest episodes, I'm always excited when my wife wants to sit down and record, because no matter what we're talking about, we're still being silly and giving each othe...

I missed you. So I'm driving home from work and talking about what's been up with me during the last two months of Corona. "Distance Learning," working from home, getting new teeth, "vaccine margaritas" and I don't even remember what else. It's just nice to be recording again.

This week I’m catching you up on what’s been going on around here while I’ve been releasing interviews. Long story short, school is closed, we’ve gotta homeschool the boys, ReAnna got sick, and I think we both may have had the corona, but can’t be sure.

Plus, I rant about how Instagram shut down one account and froze another for my editing business, ODO Voice Productions.

Livestream For The Cure 4 is May 28th-31st, 2020
All the info is at http://livestreamforthecure.com/

For part 2 of my interview with Matt Heyman of “PreRecorded Live,” it’s all about food. I’m a cook. Matt is a trained chef. We can talk food about as much as we can talking podcasting. As a matter of fact, this half of the conversation is the reason I split it into two episodes in the first place. No trigger warning this week except t...

For the next two weeks I'll be releasing my "interview" with Matt Heyman from "PreRecorded Live." In part 1 of the interview, we get into a wide range of topics. From general tech, to home improvement, and even to how we would cope with various life changing traumas, including Matt's three brushes with cancer.

This episode actually touches on some heavier topics, namely my personal robbery trauma, Matt'...

This week I start off with a little housekeeping, and I explain why it is I'm moving the show to a Monday release. Long story short, it allows me to pre-record shows and work on getting them finalized over the weekend, which means hopefully having consistent releases.
I also talk about my recent art accident and it's addition to the ODO Merch Shop.

After a break for "Some Kind Of Brown," I get into the main topic: gl...

It’s guest time again Oddballs. This time I have Donna Johnson from the “Broken Compass” podcast, which is a very new podcast featuring Donna and her best friend Angela talking about, well, all of the things they like to talk about. It’s a little bit true crime, a little bit conspiracies, and a little bit just a couple of moms bullshitting. Like me, Donna is the stay-at-home parent to her two boys, so this conversation gets way int...

How was your Valentine's Day? Mine went well enough. That is, until our son knocked one of his teeth out. But that didn't stop us from buying all of the kids bikes only 2 days later. Never mind that none of them knew how to ride one. Speaking of hilarious situations, this week's Recommended Listening feature is going to another sci-fi disaster comedy audio drama. I'm talking about Oz-9.

It's Valentine's Day! For some it's a time to get romantic and maybe shower your significant other with gifts. For me, it's kinda complicated. First off I have no clue what to get my wife. All of the standard gifts either wont work or are too expensive. That and I'm just too financially practical to justify spending the money for a lot of things.
Then I get into my kids' outright refusal to clean their bedroo...

Continuing the saga of my back yard, this week I finally got a landscaper hired. I also give a little insight into why the show has been so inconsistent for the last few weeks. And I swear it’s not an ad, but I talk about finally getting sucked into playing “Best Fiends.” Finally, in the return of Recommended Listening, I’m talking music, fitness, and philosophy in this week’s feature: “Strength, Love Metal.”

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
