Ep36: The end of the world as we know it

From The Nook Podcast

When posed with a countdown to the end of the world in just 24 days one starts to contemplate what one would do if they only had less than a month to live. I can tell you right now there is a lot I haven’t wanted to do because I want to live a full and rich life and go out with a great legacy I can be proud of. However, if I only had a month, there is a list of things I’d like to check off. Let’s face it, when faced with death, life becomes worth living.

In this episode: 

  • The world is coming to an end
  • Hey Colon, you are starting to frighten me.
  • I can’t fight so if faced with a confrontation, I will need to kill them

Ep35: Part 2- 40 years of bliss (an interview with mom)

From The Nook Podcast

I wrap up part 2 of a two of a part series this week and it will go down as one of my favorite podcast episodes ever.  As I turn 41 on Tuesday, the last few weeks have been all about exploring my past and what it was like growing up.   In part 1 I talk about my parent’s 50th anniversary and the last 50 years of their life.  Now in part 2, I explore the last 40 years of my life. I give my very first interview and it is with my mom.  If there was any mystery in your mind about how I became who I am today; after listening to us talk, I can assure you, everything will become crystal clear. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

In this episode: 

  • (An interview with my mom)
  • By the time you came along
  • Witches hat
  • Orthopedic Boot
  • I thought you just didn’t like your left side

Ep34: 50 years of bliss (Part 1)

From The Nook Podcast

There is one thing I have realized in my lifetime, finding the right person to love forEVER is a difficult task. We are forced to live the long stretch of our life with our siblings and family but you do not ever need to compromise with their idiotic beliefs, or dramatically bad choices.  Instead, you just need to endure hearing about it as your family tells you about them all in story form at a dinner. Basically, you ignore or block it out that you even had to hear these stories in the first place. Sure you can do this with a marriage too but I can tell you first hand, this does not work out. If you cannot compromise then you can expect the relationship not to last. It takes a very special type a person to survive 50 years of bliss. That type of person was born in the 1940’s and it will not be long before they go extinct. My parents are a part of this small dying breed. In a two part series I discuss their 50 years of successes and the effects it had on us as a family.

In this episode: 

  • When in a room with them you can see the dysfunction
  • You forgot the red sauce, well I know you are but what am I
  • Passive aggressive Theater transcript
  • 50 years of bliss

Ep33: Life is a b#%ch and then you die

From The Nook Podcast

I think the hardest part about being human is having the knowledge that at some point we will all die. This kind of information is a horrible burden; there is no way around death and as much as we all get that, why do we need to know, wuldn’t it just be easier if we didn’t?  I think this is why we never deal with death and horrible situations very well, because when someone gets sick or someone is dying, or a close friend of ours is slowly slipping away, we never handle the news right.  We don’t handle it right because it is a harsh reminder of our own mortality.

In this episode: 

  • My thoughts are always lost in translation
  • My thoughts and prayers are with you
  • The heavy burden of knowing you will die
