Mind of Modern Man Podcast - Episode 16 - My Time With The Admiral
Hey! It’s Keith from Mind of the Modern Man – the website and podcast about a guy
in his 40s, living life and telling stories.
A while ago, I shared the story while I was observing a little slice of life, stuck in the waiting vestibule of the local Pep Boys.
As I sat there, I took to my laptop and typed down what was happening all around me.
Today I share the podcast of this story – I call it – My Time With The Admiral.
Read the Transcript Below (full story at MindofModernMan.com):
I’m sitting here in the ‘waiting room’ of the local Pep Boys – it’s time for the family SUV to go through an oil change. As I sit here, I’m really enjoying the life buzzing all around me.
Ever do that - just sit there and look around you and try to figure out the stories behind what you’re a first person witness of? For this next hour or so, we are all sharing this small sliver of our life. Strangers pulled together with a common need – a professional to do to our vehicle what we can’t.

Mind of Modern Man Podcast - Episode 15 - THIS Close to Perfect
Hey! In today's podcast, I go back, exactly 20 years from today, for this week's story.
July 18, 1999 - a trip to Yankee Stadium and what ensued was nothing short of an amazing story - and not just for the reason you think.
It was Yogi Berra Day!
My hero, Don Mattingly was Back at the Stadium!
Paul O'Neill made a Highlight Reel catch.
David Cone pitched REALLY well that day...
But that's only half the story of my day. Listen to it all here or on iTunes today.
Mind of Modern Man Podcast - Episode 14 - More Than Just A T-Shirt
In the mail last month, I received the newest graphic tee from our friends at Wohven.com. It’s a great look – and reminds me 100% of what it was like getting dressed in the late 80s and early 90s and some of the great memories those shirts were a part of for me.
Listen to our latest podcast her or you can find us on iTunes too! If you'd rather read the story - you can do that on our website too!
I was born in 1975. That means I was born in the time of disco, ran around as kid during the 80s pop phenomenon and came ‘of age’ in the era of grunge and big hair rock.
Like most families with multiple kids (I have one amazing younger brother), my mom often bought us clothes that looked good to her – and some of the times, even matched.
I remember red shirts with a huge black strip on it, with faux snaps across the top and bottom of the strip. With matching shorts, of course.
I remember baseball tees and the generic solid color shirts from JC Penny or Bradlees.

Mind of Modern Man Podcast - Episode 13 - Where Am I Supposed To Look?
With everyone heading to the beach for the Fourth of July weekend, I have another story for you. Today, I'm recalling a recent trip to the beach.
I’ve mentioned, in previous stories, my major disinterest in the beach.
The heat scalding your skin. The shells slicing the soft underbelly of your feet. The crowds of people flexing, preening and sweating all over the place. And of course, the super, almost occult-like, ability for sand to get EVERYwhere it doesn’t belong. Not that sand actually belongs anywhere, mind you.
I’m not just whining here. Sand in the shorts is a real issue. We have chaffing. We have all kinds of bacteria. We have who knows what kind of pollution and no kidding, the American Journal of Epidemiology has been researching the relationship between beach sand and fecal contamination. That’s right, evidence has shown that sand does, in fact, harbor high concentrations of fecal particles.
But I digress.
The other day I went to the beach.
Why? Because I love my kids. And my kids love the beach.
So, there I was. At the beach. 4pm on a Sunday – the first Sunday where the temperature dipped its toe into the 80s here in Connecticut. My family loves to pack a picnic and head to the beach, either first thing in the morning before the crowds, or around 4pm as they are all leaving.
My kids are little, so they’re playing in the sand and treading into the shallows of our little inlet of Long Island Sound. This is the extent of our beachy activities. Bring a few pails, some shovels and a plastic dump truck and we’re in business.

Mind of Modern Man Podcast - Episode 12 - The Closer I Am To Fine
We've decided to change up direction a bit here at Mind of Modern Man and get back to our roots of simple storytelling. We told you all, this site would be about a guy in his 40s, living life, and telling the story. So - we're going to flesh that out for you.
We'll still post about some of our favorite pop culture things, great products we love, and all that fun stuff, but we're going to do this in a story form across all our platforms - here on the blog, on our podcast and over on our YouTube Channel too!
We're starting it off with a podcast of a story I wrote in May 2017 about the word "FINE". There's so much there!
