Randy Smythe has decided to retire at age 59 and spend an entire year traveling across the United States with the goal of visiting every US National Park. Our weekly podcast will follow Randy and get weekly updates on where he's been, what he's seen, and who he's met - as well as sprinkle in some retirement planning advice, income stream ideas, and e-commerce news and discussion with his good friend Kevin "Bubba" Harmon.
S1 E67: Kong Vs. Godzilla Vs. COVID Vs. Masks
Episode 67 of the Travels With Randy Podcast is here! (finally!)
It's been a wackadoo couple of weeks for Bubba. Once again, he traveled to Central Illinois for a funeral. This time he drove and even got to hang out with Randy in person (which we should have recorded and released as a pod). He noticed a TON of difference in the number of mask-wearers this trip - folks seem to have had enough of wearing them.
S1 E66: When The White Flowers Bloom On Trees Then Its Springtime
For the second week in a row, Bubba travels while Randy babbles.
Bubba makes a trip to his homeland - Central Illinois. Champaign, Decatur, Warrensburg, Latham, and Mt Zion are all on the docket. Sadly, it was for a funeral, but he gets to spend some time with family and old high school friends and even visits his Alma Mater, the University of Illinois.
They then launch into a high-level overview of cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, Ethereum, blockchain, and NFT's (nothing TOO rough).
S1 E65: Bubba Visits Jekyll Island, GA
Well, well, well...it's finally Bubba's turn to talk about a trip instead of Randy. Mrs. Bubba surprised the whole family last weekend with a trip to Jekyll Island, GA and it was glorious: the beach, long bike rides, seafood galore, beautiful scenery, and not many other people around. Jekyll Island was a delight!
They end with a spoiler-free discussion of Wandavision, and Bubba briefly discusses Chaos Walking and Raya And The Last Dragon.
S1 E64 : Bubba And The Boomer Discuss Nomadland
Episode 64 of the Travels With Randy Podcast is here!
We spend a lot of time discussing the film Nomadland, now showing on Hulu. Both Bubba and Randy strongly identify with the main character of this film because of our backgrounds and general approach to living our lives. Randy is the Nomad and the whole reason we started the podcast, and Bubba has had many Nomadic experiences including selling pictures on street corners with Scientologists. The film hit us hard in several different ways.
S1 E63: The Super Bowl Makes Old Men Everywhere Proud
I mean, was it a SUPER Bowl?
No. Well, yes. Well, sort of. The Bucs just did the unthinkable to the Chiefs Sunday night, led by Old Man Brady and an incredible Tampa Bay team performance. Bubba and Randy discuss the game, the pre-show, the halftime show, the commercials, and everything else.
They also discuss the weather, auto insurance rates when you have young male drivers, and end with TV reviews of The Little Things, Wandavision, and In And Of Itself.
S1 E62: The Weather Is Here, I Wish You Were Beautiful
Episode 62 of the Travels With Randy Podcast is here!
It's finally happened. After 62 episodes, we get to just talk about the weather like all old men do.
In a very welcome week that's light on news, Randy and Bubba just sort of ramble on and on about the weather, how the COVID vaccine is progressing, what 'normal' will be like soon, and the wild and wacky tale of Gamestop and its' EPIC short squeeze
