    Practical Valentine's Chores: ODO 175

    Practical Valentine's Chores: ODO 175

    It's Valentine's Day! For some it's a time to get romantic and maybe shower your significant other with gifts. For me, it's kinda complicated. First off I have no clue what to get my wife. All of the standard gifts either wont work or are too expensive. That and I'm just too financially practical to justify spending the money for a lot of things.
    Then I get into my kids' outright refusal to clean their bedrooms, even to the point of doing other chores that they aren't responsible for, just so they don't have to do the ones that they are.
    Finally, another founding member of the Podfix network has announced their ending. We're saying goodbye to "Weird With You."

    This week "Weird With You" announced that they would be ending their show after episode 180. Life just got to be too much work to juggle with a podcast. So farewell Weird With You. It's been a ton of laughs.

    Strength, Fiends, Landscaping: ODO 174

    Strength, Fiends, Landscaping: ODO 174

    Continuing the saga of my back yard, this week I finally got a landscaper hired. I also give a little insight into why the show has been so inconsistent for the last few weeks. And I swear it’s not an ad, but I talk about finally getting sucked into playing “Best Fiends.” Finally, in the return of Recommended Listening, I’m talking music, fitness, and philosophy in this week’s feature: “Strength, Love Metal.”

    Robot Sharks and Ceiling Fans: ODO 173

    Robot Sharks and Ceiling Fans: ODO 173

    This week, I decided to flex my daddy DIY skills and install a few ceiling fans in the house. Unfortunately I've never actually done it before, and my arms are sore AF. Ironically, while I'm being so productive in one way, I'm also being lazy because we just bought a robot vacuum.

    Updates:
    I’ve decided to keep the podcast at it’s current home of odddadoutpodcast.com. That’s mostly because I’m pretty sure changing it will break every link I’ve shared for the show in the last 2 years.


    Odddadout.com will eventually get built into a home page for all of my various endeavors under the ODO brand. (Excuse me I think I just threw up in my mouth a bit.) This will obviously include the podcast, but also podcast editing at ODO Voice Productions, voice acting, audiobook narration and all that fun stuff I do.


    For the time being, I am going to drop the “BS From The News” segment from the show. Among other reasons, it is the one part of the show that causes me the most stress and work. I’ve also gotten some feedback regarding how I cover some things and, as much as I’m kind of an a*****e, I’m not that kind of a*****e.

    Moving Break Over, Welcome to 2020!! ODO 171

    After a completely unintended hiatus, I'm back! Welcome to 2020!! I've got an update on the move to our new home. I give a kind of loose tour of what's kept me away. There's some excitement over my new office. And I give some insight into what I want to do with the show and more in 2020.

    Friends From Down Under w/ Paul Przytula From the Countdown Podcast: ODO 170

    Friends From Down Under w/ Paul Przytula From the Countdown Podcast: ODO 170

    *Sorry about the delay folks. Moving is a pain
    This week I have my conversation with Paul Przytula from "the Countdown Movie and TV Reviews) podcast. This was originally recorded as part of NAPODPOMO, but I just got too busy to put it together. I'm not gonna lie, I do way too much of the talking in this episode. This is a prime example of why I should have talking points for guests, if only to shut myself up. I need to get Paul back on sometime so I can do less of the talking. Either way, enjoy!

    Paul Przytula

    Paul hails from Perth, Australia and co-hosts “the Countdown Movie and TV Reviews” podcast with school friend Wayne Aroozoo. You could call Paul the “straight man” in the team, as he is usually the more level headed one. This may be because of his day job as a mental health professional, or just because he’s really just that cool.

    Countdown Movie And TV Review
    https://thecountdownpc.podbean.com/
    The Countdown is a weekly comedic podcast from Australia in which two massive film buffs countdown a topic in order of awesomeness from 10-1 while picking apart the other’s list. They do this with a heaping helping of snark and a whole new vocabulary of profanity. To call this show NSFW is the understatement of a lifetime. And it’s that much funnier for it.

Customer Reviews

Moppy66 ,

I get it!

This podcast is one of my favorites! I can relate to so much of the content! And I personally just love a good laugh.

Some Kind of Brown Podcast ,

Oddly chill and entertaining!

Listening to the Odd Dad Out episodes is like hanging out with a good friend; kids being crazy, life being crazy, news being crazier. Adam is like the Northerlion of podcasts and I love listening to the episodes when I'm working on something!

JV Torres ,

Good stuff

I can totally relate as an odd dad myself. Keep it going, we’re tuning in.
