New podcast episode!
Same old terrible people.
Normally, our podcast is accessible only to patrons of this site who pledge $1 or more, but since we went on such a shamefully long hiatus, we’re just putting this new episode out there. Free! Free! And worth every cent.
Our podcast (which we hope to start producing weekly again) is about 25 minutes of me and my husband Damien having some drinks and talking about stuff that amuses us, which this week includes errant underwear, errant Malteasers, blue caviar, and a little thing I like to call “Malcolm Gladwell.” No politics. A little cussing. More in-jokes than you can even handle. There’s usually a poem at the end, but this week, I went with something different.
We are very grateful to our current, faithful patrons who have stuck with us for no good reason at all. Really, thank you.
Everyone else, do consider becoming a patron! I try to keep ads on this site as un-intrusive as possible, and patrons make that possible, as well as warming my cold little heart.

I don’t know if you’ve solved the mystery around Malcolm Gladwell but he wrote a article called “Sacred and Profane” that was an account of the negotiations between David Koresh and the authorities that was published in New Yorker magazine.
I just finished up a book called After The Fire by Will Hill that is about a 17 year old girl named Moonbeam who was a member of a cult called the Lord’s Legion and shifts between after the fire and the government shows up and before the fire. The author mentions Malcolm Gladwell in the author’s note. The author remembered the events surrounding David Koresh and the Branch Davidians and was especially impacted after a visit to the Newseum in D.C. He was reading everything he could on Waco and Malcolm Gladwell came up.
Though this could be a different Malcolm Gladwell so I don’t know. I saw his name in the author’s note and remember hearing it in the podcast so I thought I’d let you know.
Here’s a link to the article:
Welcome back, indeed! Great logo, great name, great sound. Oh, that ice was so clear and crisp I had to put on a sweater! Now we await the return of the poem ….. I expect it will beat the hell out a ham sandwich.
My poor sister had to sit through the Mamma Mia! movie with her friends. I don’t know if she would’ve enjoyed ABBA otherwise, but she sure doesn’t now.
Anyway, welcome back!
