    Untitled: the short story extravaganza!

    Untitled: the short story extravaganza!

    You're probably wondering if we managed to survive our own podcast,  you may also be wondering "What's up with that title?". Well, the answer to those are, yes we did (though barely) and we couldn't come up with one better...

    Been a LONG time since our last update. Some of that is good news, some not so much. During this episode we discuss my husband's brother Daniel and his wife Gabrielle,  who lost a child a year ago. Despite the sorrow of such a topic, we were excited to announce our daughter Kiera was expecting. Unfortunately, Kiera also lost her child from a miscarriage in the 7th week, not too long after we recorded this. Needless to say; we all but forgot about the podcast.

    On a more positive note, the "rainbow" baby boy they were expecting has been born and is healthy! So this podcast may be ridiculously late but we spent the time recording and editing so we're going to release it anyway!

    For those who have lost a child or know someone who has, Daniel and his wife Gabrielle published a book to help people with a similar loss and in memory of their daughter Briella which we will link HERE

    Editor's Note: We also want to make a correction, we talked about my brother losing his baby girl at 29 weeks, when it was actually 24.

    Worst 2nd date EVER!

    Worst 2nd date EVER!

    If you think you've had a bad date, well the story of Danielle MacGuire and Daniel Zapp will put your worst date in startling perspective! Going for a walk in the park turned into a nightmare when both were kidnapped. They were driven to a river, where Danielle was sexually assaulted, then they were both forced to the river and shot.

    Sounds like a pretty cut and dry case of a horrific murder doesn't it? But this is what DIDN'T kill me. So as miraculous as it may sound BOTH survive! Please join us after, a way too long of a break, as we finally publish this story we recorded months ago!

    What a sticky situation!

    What a sticky situation!

    In this episode we discuss the world's only molasses flood, and we're not talking about just a warehouse here! We take you back to 1919 and an oh so safe molasses "receptacle" and how nothing can possibly go wrong storing 2 million gallons of molasses! Follow along some of these sticky situations and those that survived a 40 foot wave of syrupy doom! Including one brave 12 year old boy Anthony di Stasio, who manages to cling to safety for as long as his little arms would hold out.

    Despite this cartoonish concept and the easy jokes (which of course we made due to the absurdity of the event) this is actually a horrific accident that cost a lot property damage and the lives of men, women, children and horses. We also want to point out, this takes place during the "Spanish Flu" and serves as an example of how a pandemic brings out the cartoon character in all of us! (We're looking at you 2020)

    Out of the water and into the sky, a Hawaiian Extravaganza!

    Out of the water and into the sky, a Hawaiian Extravaganza!

    Welcome to our second season! Despite our tiny audience we had so much fun, we're doing another one. If you enjoy our humble little show and think someone you know would as well, please pass it on. Word of mouth is really the best way to grow our little audience. I'd also like to thank those of you who've been listening from the start we really appreciate it!

    This episode is the scary story of Aloha Airlines flight 243, and how they managed to land with only three quarters of the plane remaining! We talk about the brave heroes Michelle Honda, who kept passengers calm even at the risk to her own wellbeing and First Officer Mimi Tompkins who helped bring the plane to safety.

    Editor's Note: OMG! this is the 1st time I didn't have to spend 5x our run time making sure the audio was actually understandable! From here on out things should sound a lot better. Now... If only I could teach them microphone etiquette...

    Three kid related stories and a special guest!

    Three kid related stories and a special guest!

    THIS WAS THE WORST EPISODE EVER!!! Sorry folks this description has been hijacked by the editor. I promise you'll survive my rant here about how it took me 6 hours to edit 30 minutes of sound much better than I did! Seriously! The fact this episode exists at all and wasn't tossed in to the big waste basket in the cloud is just further proof I'm too stubborn to quit. So please excuse the quality problem we had a death in the microphone family and the fact I could salvage this at all is a miracle. So.... I got everyone new microphones for Christmas!

    I now return you to your regularly (or semi-regularly) scheduled description:

    In this episode Jade talks about a bunch of kids stuck where the sun don't shine... a cave! Sylvia talks about a boy who saved his family from diving off a cliff! And our special guest, well... you'll just have to listen to find out!

    911 the day or our podcast disaster?

    911 the day or our podcast disaster?

    Hello everyone! On today's episode we talk about 9-11... as you'll notice by the publication date of this episode (12-2-21) we are a "little" behind. Due to some time conflicts, family events, a family vacation and other normal mental breakdowns, we are about 3 months behind. But worry not dear listener I'm sure more chaos is yet to come! (I'm looking at you Omicron!)

    On the upside, our 15th episode is already recorded! Let's just not talk about when it was recorded...
