Home Sweet Home

Being a nightshift worker AND autism parent, I pretty much stay home, isolated quarantine style just me and my little posse. In 2020 though the whole world joined me and freaked out for what was, to me, just a Tuesday. I feel for you all, I honestly do, but I was grateful for once to not feel sl alone in that situation, and that EVERYBODY could finally see for themselves what my life is day-in day-out.

Working 9 to 5

Disappointingly enough, no one ever asks why I chose "After Midnight" as a title for a music podcast, and since y'all insist on not asking, it is because I wanted to make the kinda of podcast that I want to listen to during my working hours which are at night.

With a Little Help: Drinks

Way back when I started this little venture I had no idea I would still be doling it 2 years later; I met amazing people, discovered awesome music and I cannot help feeling that the best is yet to come. For a while I felt I should let listeners in on the fun and have more of a voice, and let the music I play be their own choice. So over the next few months I will revisit the original batch of topics covered on the show, but this time... With a Little Help! In this special offshoot of After...


At The Zoo

"Man is the only animal that blushes. Or needs to," said Mark Twain. The writer often showed his characters in embarrassing situations they are entirely responsible for, in a declaration that people can be more foolish than animals in their actions and that they should be aware of their own foolishness. Doubtful that science took the time to test whether animals do blush when under significant stress, but they do help relieve our own greatly, especially in uncertain times when the collective...
