The Time Has Come!

Discussions of life and such from lifelong friends. And such.

BONUS CONTENT: Father’s Day At the Mark Twain House

Father’s Day, June 16, 2013, I got a chance to speak at a story-telling event at the Mark Twain House and Museum in Hartford, put on by NPR’s Chion Wolf and featuring Colin McEnroe, of the Colin McEnroe Show.

I got to stand in front of an audience and tell them a Joel Dobbin story. Here is my portion of the event, where I got to talk about what it was to have Joel Dobbin as a father.

I hope you enjoy it, and if you knew him, I hope it brings him back for a moment to you and if you did not, I hope it puts the idea of him in your head and you begin to understand what it might have been to have known and loved him.

I most certainly did, and still do.

Episode 050: Say It Ain’t So, Joe

“A hero ain’t nothing but a sandwich.” At least so says the title of a 1973 book about heroin in the ghetto. In this episode, there are no heroes to be found in sandwich shops. Only lies.

Find out that it’s all happening at the zoo; at the zoo, at the zoo. But what kind of zoo, you ask? Oh. You will find out.

This week’s episode was recorded late at night, so it is shorter than most, but as an added bonus, it features the full version of our “outro” song: I Am The Man by The Red Zoids,  fronted by friend-of-the-podcast, gentleman, scholar, wizard and scoundrel Jimi Odell.

Episode 049: Mysteries of the Unknown!

Ancient and powerful secrets, hidden from view by Secret Chiefs; wheels which spin within wheels: mysterious cabals of Illuminated Seers, creatures or entities from beyond space or time. Psychic phenomenon, remote vision, telekinesis, and the persistence of ectoplasmic energy in the material plane….

All a bunch of hooey, most likely. But it does not stop Josh or Keith from talking about it. Along the way: Misheard song lyrics, urine-soaked pants and water-slides, and the real-life PSYCHIC HIT declared on a 3 year old Josh Dobbin’s very life in the 1970s by the famous hoaxter/grifter couple Ed and Lorraine Warren.
