July 17, 2020

This episode of The Obscure Curio is proudly brought to you by JetBlack Empowerment. Those of you that have kept up with the show know that as of March of this year, I have spent increasingly more time livestreaming my podcasts via the Podbean app. Here, with a few fellow podcasters and livestreamers- we formed a non-profit organization to help with some of the problems we found ourselves commonly discussing on our programs. This is the condensed version of how JetBlack Empowerment was formed- in the coming weeks I hope to better illustrate the depth of the organization and all it hopes to accomplish. In short, our mission statement reads as follows:

JetBlack Empowerment is an ever-evolving organization. Envisioned and materialized with the sole purpose of supporting, empowering, and shining the light on Black owned businesses and Business ventures. By doing so, further educating present and future black entrepreneurs on their Journey to Financial freedom and economic sustainability, all while laying a foundation for community enrichment.

So please check out Jet Black Empowerment on Facebook @JetBlackEMP and on Twitter and Instagram @JetBlack_EMP. And coming soon you can find us at

www.jetblackempowerment.org

I am only a member of the organization and my podcast alone does not claim to speak for the organization and represent it outside of my present capacity.

If you have not already, please check out the Podbean app. In addition to being a traditional podcatching app, where you can listen to all of your favorite shows, it also boasts a great audio-only livestreaming platform that is home to tons of excellent podcasters and entertainers.

Episode 51- Popping Bubbles

Episode 51- Popping Bubbles

May 27, 2020

Thanks for coming back to The Obscure Curio. Today, I share with you one of my recent live casts from Podbean. In it, I take calls and respond to comments from people all over the world. This particular episode seemed to revolve around the topics of police brutality and racism, in the wake of the recent murder of George Floyd. While having a very productive conversation, in my opinion, one of the callers impersonates Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys. This continues for nearly the entire length of the episode. It was definitely an interesting one. If you like what you hear, check out my livecasts on the Podbean app.

Thanks for coming back for another episode of The Obscure Curio. This episode is another recording of one of my Podbean Live Streams, this one featuring the one and only Uncle Chris Buckley. I, as always, had a great time talking with Chris. During this episode we discuss our hopes for Generation Z, some of the optimistic endings we may have to the current global crisis, and the unfortunate "business" side of a pandemic. We also discuss some of the finer points of growing up in the south and, in the process, give a one-of-a-kind lesson on the differences between all the beautiful southern cities. This one was truly a pleasure to record and is a definite gem of an episode. Enjoy.

Episode 47- Live Stream with Joey Mcintyre

March 26, 2020

Hello friends and Welcome to another episode of The Obscure Curio. Today's episode is a highlight taken from a recent live stream I did on the Podbean app and it features the one and only Joey Mcintyre. Keeping up with social distancing protocol, I was able to remotely record a great conversation about being on the frontlines of this pandemic. Joey works for a retail giant here in America and is therefor in the coveted position of an "essential employee." Whether we yet realize it or not, these people are putting themselves in front of a clear and present danger to ensure the rest of us can continue having access to life sustaining necessities. 

So listen in on Joey's first-hand account of being in this environment during the present situation, follow our discussion on dealing with anxiety in this rapidly changing world, and allow us to provide an optimistic look at the future that may lie ahead for all of us.

Episode 46- CoronaCrisis with Henry Fremin Pt. 2

March 23, 2020

Hello, friends. I know it took longer than usual, but I am proud to present you with the conclusion to CoronaCrisis with my with my good friend Henry Fremin. In Part Two, we take a longer look at what the term "free speech" entails and why it is so important. Of course, we also talk more about the current global pandemic that we are all experiencing. This entire conversation was recorded a week ago- so some of the numbers and information quoted may no longer be up to date, but the message is still relevant. 

As we work on new episodes while still practicing social distancing, join us for one of our live streams. Follow us on The Podbean App, Youtube, or Patreon to listen.

March 18, 2020

Thanks for joining me on another episode of The Obscure Curio- 2020 Coronavirus Quarantine Edition. Today I am joined by my good friend Henry Fremin to discuss the pandemic and our lives in the midst of it.

This episode is both directly about the current situation and a chance to escape it. Though Henry and I do talk about the facts surrounding the pandemic- we also talk about life in general. In Part 1, we start the conversation off about music and what makes certain individuals great. We talk about our own methods in parenting, navigating the world in this moment and in general, and we bounce some relevant stories back and forth as we catch up on our experiences over the past month. Enjoy the episode and stay healthy ya’ll.

Episode 44- Diary of Descent Pt. 2

Episode 44- Diary of Descent Pt. 2

March 13, 2020

Thanks for coming back to hear the conclusion of our episode on addiction and recovery, here on The Obscure Curio. In Part Two, I round off the story of my own path through addiction and try to tend to any unexpressed ideas about my personal experience. I appreciate everyone's support on the matter so far and I appreciate you taking the time to listen. Addiction is an old condition- people have been drinking themselves to death and drowning out the noise with opium and other plants for thousands of years. However, now that we can plainly see this issue in the faces of the ones close to us- we are finally starting to take it seriously. If you or someone you know needs help- reach out to trained professionals. Or you can reach out to the show with any questions- and we can point you to professionals.
