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.
I also made me appreciate this little place of mine I call home, my old but personality-filled house that I will cry about when I look upon it for the final time as a home. So please raise an ear with and enjoy these 5 fine songs about whatever place it is YOU call home.

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. Therefore it is quite baffling, if only to me, that I never before thought of "work" as an episode topic.
I truly do hope that after more than 2 years my little show found some, among my audience, for whom it has been a companion in the dark while everybody else is chasing Zees. It certainly has been a therapeutic experience for me to have that distraction of producing it when the sun is down, and so with great aplomb do I propose to you THIS time a set of songs about Working!
