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

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.

March 9, 2020

Thanks for joining me on this special edition of The Obscure Curio. I haven't done a solo episode in a while and, surprisingly, I've had some request to do one. Since I'll be sober for three years on March 22nd, I thought now would be a good time to tell my own personal story of addiction and recovery. I get a lot of questions, comments, and discussions coming up about why I say the things I do about drugs, addiction, and things of the like. It is my hope that by hearing exactly what I have experienced with addiction, recovery, and the criminal justice system might serve to inform any curious parties on this matter. I realize that not all of our listeners know me personally and that to say some things without context may come across as confusing at best or ignorant at worst. So if you know me, thank you for the support and maybe you will know me a little better after this. If you don't, I hope this will make us closer. I am very candid about my own life experience so I will give you a fair warning; this episode speaks openly about the use of drugs. If that is something you cannot handle hearing at this point, I don't recommend listening to it. Even if you have no interest in me as a person, perhaps this episode can help you understand somethings about addiction and recovery you may be interested in. As always, I thank everyone for your continued support and I hope you enjoy the show!

Episode 42- with Andrew Johnson Pt. 2

Episode 42- with Andrew Johnson Pt. 2

March 5, 2020

In part of two of my recent episode with Andrew Johnson, we open up the conversation by asking- Does quantum mechanics offer any explanations to what we currently consider supernatural? If so, does that make these phenomenon any less strange? We then discuss why the truth is relative most of the time. Immediately following, get some advice on what to do with religious folks galavanting around your front yard. Also, what's it like to grow up as an actual poor person? All this and more as we begin, as promised, to sample the finest and most delectable cheeses our local Aldi has to offer. Listen to our expert recommendations on cheese and why we should force all billionaires to live on 10 grand for 6 months just to show them some goddamn humility. Remember folks, sometimes nuance is more important than creating a concise description. Welcome to The Obscure Curio.
