5/13/2021
I'm a little lower energy this week. Just a bit tired so I keep things short for once. But "holy mashed potatoes Batman!" I actually have a general theme this week.

ODO 203: How Did I Even Get Here?

5/6/2021
It's another one of those, train of thought falling off the tracks, kind of weeks. What I can tell you is that my brain goes all over the place with topics and thoughts. What I can't tell you is how exactly I got from where I started to where I ended up. I know I talked about fixing up my office and my wife's job. Somehow I got into the various responsibilities of my pets. I think I touch on my content production schedule, my existence as a walking series of contradictions, and something...

Peak Adulting and Nick Jr Nostalgia: ODO 202

4/29/2021
It's another silly brain week. But this week I came to the realization that I may have reached peak adulting. Honestly I may be a little too excited about my new rake and my wife's new office chair. We also spent most of the week binging and introducing our boys to the Nickelodeon shows of our childhood via the new Paramount+ streaming service. I've gotta admit that I get a bit defensive of my TV nostalgia after a bit. But I stand by all of it. If you want to know more about the 5th Annual...

Links and Full Show Notes at- https://odddadoutpodcast.com/school-days-and-an-earth-shaking-gender-reveal-odo-201/ I'm feeling a little silly this week. I don't know why, but I was just in a giggly mood through this whole episode. Maybe it was the long night. Maybe it was the instant coffee at 3 am. I was just in a goofy mood. So try as I might to talk about the boys going back to on-campus school, I just tangented all over the place. Badass grilled cheese, sibling rivalry, Queen...

Weekend At Patagonia's: ODO 199

3/25/2021
For the sake of trying my best to focus on something, This week is all about our latest experience in mini-vacationing. We took a little spring break trip to a cabin at the Patagonia Lake State Park. Long story short, it was a gorgeous view of a beautiful lake in southern Arizona with hiking trails, lots of birdwatching, and lots of campfire cooking. It was also freezing balls, windy as hell, and I was constantly being dragged around by an annoyingly curious husky. Oh yeah, and there were...

https://odddadoutpodcast.com/braces-for-a-bug-odo-196 Howdy there Oddballs! I'm gonna try my best this week to try and keep things to just a couple topics. Whether that actually happens is anyone's guess. On that note, we recently had a major trip to the dentist for one of our little monsters, and the outcome is going to get expensive. Also, I've got my more in depth review of "The Box Of Oddities." And in my new "What's Adam Listening to/ Watching" segement, my wife and I just finished...

Time away to think Being away from the podcast for these last few months has given me some time to think about what I want to do with things.

Something's Gotta Give, and I've Only Got One Thing That Can: ODO 193

8/26/2020
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 school day, my wife working during school hours, and my graveyard...

Is It Friday Yet?: ODO 192

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 livestream giveaway, if I can swing it... -SUPPORT THE SHOW- MERCH and Art...
