    Before you freak out at the title, no I’m not changing up this show. At least for the most part. Rather, this week’s Recommended Listening will highlight a few podcasts that have changed since the last time I talked about them. Not much “Florida Man” in this week’s news, but a whole lot of stupid. And we’ve recently had to make a major change in our plans around the house.

    Not A Great Time For a Road Trip
    If you’ve been listening for the last few weeks, you’d have heard that we’ve been setting up for our annual summer family vacation. Well, under the current circumstances, it’s really not the best for us to take a road trip right now. Long story short, “thanks corona.” Long story slightly longer, we’ve got a lot of family who are pretty high risk, and we don’t want to increase their risk with our road trip germs.

    And now for something a little lighter…

    The other night, our youngest decided that he didn’t want to eat his dinner. I had made a pot of pinto beans, (because in a quarantine panic we bought a 25 lb bag of them) and he didn’t like them. And rather than throw a tantrum, like a normal child, he decided that he was going to fart to show how mad he was. Unfortunately for him, all of his pushing did not result in a fart, if you know what I mean…

    Working In The Sun With Florida Man: ODO 185

    Full Show Notes at
    https://odddadoutpodcast.com/working-in-the-sun-with-florida-man:-odo-185/

    This week we’re back to a “normal” show with the tale of my 3 day battle with the sun and the sprinklers. The news is back with 4 “Florida Man” stories from this week, and in Recommended Listening, it’s a new show from a past featured host. It’s time to get up and go jogging with Stacey Frost and “Run With Me On This.”

    -Recommended Listening-
    Run With Me On This
    https://anchor.fm/runwithmeothis/
    "Each episode Stacey takes you on a journey to discover an interesting topic. All this is set to a background of upbeat music to keep you running, cycling or swimming. Of course, if you're just sitting in the car you can choose the beat free version for a more relaxing distraction."

    Of Podcasting and Pumpkins: ODO 184

    Once again, I try to come back to the show and share my randomness about all things going on in my head. This time around, I explain my office/ recording situation, I get way too excited when I start talking about my gardens, and of course I go on tangent rabbit holes that even get me lost. Just another week with the Odd Dad Out.

    Desks, Distance Learning, and Non-Corona Gardening w/ ReAnna: ODO 183

    Desks, Distance Learning, and Non-Corona Gardening w/ ReAnna: ODO 183

    I didn't plan it this way, but it's time for the "Guest of The Month!" And because I wasn't planning to record yet, and she was bored, I'm talking to my wife, ReAnna.
    (Seriously, recording this was all her idea.)
    As much as I love my guest episodes, I'm always excited when my wife wants to sit down and record, because no matter what we're talking about, we're still being silly and giving each other crap the entire time.

    This time around we're going deeper into what we've had going on around the house during the age of Corona. We talk more about "distance learning" and just looking forward to school coming back next year. ReAnna shares her college journey from curious history major through theater and now graduating from ASU with an education degree on her way to a Master's in Library Science.

    Driving Home And Other Corona Updates: ODO 182

    Driving Home And Other Corona Updates: ODO 182

    I missed you. So I'm driving home from work and talking about what's been up with me during the last two months of Corona. "Distance Learning," working from home, getting new teeth, "vaccine margaritas" and I don't even remember what else. It's just nice to be recording again.

    Viral Homeschooling and Insta-Blockage: ODO 181

    Viral Homeschooling and Insta-Blockage: ODO 181

    This week I’m catching you up on what’s been going on around here while I’ve been releasing interviews. Long story short, school is closed, we’ve gotta homeschool the boys, ReAnna got sick, and I think we both may have had the corona, but can’t be sure.

    Plus, I rant about how Instagram shut down one account and froze another for my editing business, ODO Voice Productions.

HelloandNo ,

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!
