Better Off Undead #126 – Dave in Daytime

http://traffic.libsyn.com/selfpublishingpodcast/bou_episode_126.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadShare Like a bear dragged out in the open during his hibernation, Dave is extra frustrated with life right now because, you guessed it, he’s again trying to keep to a day schedule. However, even though that’s the reason behind the name of this episode, it wasn’t really the most interesting thing that happened this week. Now, Garrett Robinson deciding he can’t finish reading 12 because it’s too dark/depressing/Davish… THAT is totally something worth listening for! This week find out: What Garrett said about 12 What Dave things of Garrett If any CI title will ever end with hope What book inspired Yesterday’s Gone How Johnny feels about home schooling his kids And so much...

Better Off Undead #125 – Ding Dong Ditch, Dave Style

http://traffic.libsyn.com/selfpublishingpodcast/bou_episode_125.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadShare BOU is supposed to be about three writers (with one brain… Remember that tag line?), but this episode is more about three dads (albeit three ticked off dads) complaining about the stupid stuff that’s happening with their kids. Even if that doesn’t sound appealing (and, really, what about BOU is EVER appealing?), you’ll want to stick around for Dave’s story at the end, because that’s where the you-know-what hits the proverbial fan. Here’s what goes down: How soccer is ruining Johnny’s Friday nights Do kids really need sports anyway? What body part Dave wants replaced (with a bionic version) What sports Johnny played in school Why Dave stalked two kids in the dark with a...

Better Off Undead #124 – Dave vs Common Core Math

http://traffic.libsyn.com/selfpublishingpodcast/bou_episode_124.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadShare Here’s a classic for you guys this week, full of some old tropes we haven’t seen for a while. We should vote in the comments if BOU should become a call-in show, where we choose the topic each week, and they (meaning Dave) have to just improv their way through the show! Some of the not-to-be-missed topics this week: How crappy BOU has become… …and how much the show has changed since it’s conception What can be done to improve BOU Dave’s issue with Swedish interviewers (yeah, we were all surprised, here!) What core math is and why you should hate it Dave and Johnny’s attitude about school/homework/assignments Dave’s fear of “certain numbers”...

Better Off Undead #123 – Dave the Tapir

http://traffic.libsyn.com/selfpublishingpodcast/bou_episode_123.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadShare This week’s BOU started at a high point when Dave the Tapir made an appearance. It’s always fun to hear Sean talk in the alternating voices of Eeyore and Pikachu. If you’re not into talking stuffed animals, then, hopefully, politics are your thing, because that’s where the guys went next. Dave started to complain about a situation regarding an offensive T-shirt. From there, Sean and Dave got into a fascinating discussion about hate crimes, government, laws, racism, and social change. Fascinating, that is, for everyone but Johnny. Even if politics are not your cup of tea, watching Johnny squirm while Sean and Dave talk government is well worth it! But don’t take my word for it; listen/watch for...

Better Off Undead #122 – The DaVEinci Code

http://traffic.libsyn.com/selfpublishingpodcast/bou_episode_122.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadShare This week, we get yet another view into the dark and twisted mind if David Wright. Even when the guys start the show with absolutely nothing to talk about, they quickly find something entertaining to wallow in for half an hour or so. This week, you might be able to guess what this show is all about by checking out the evolution of the show’s titles-in-progress: Dave Explains Marriage Dave Explains Life The DaVEinci Code...
