Like pimping, podcasting ain’t easy.
The My Life With Kant podcast took everything out of me. I once said that it was like a part-time job. But I was being modest. It was my actual job because I was working on it on the clock during my full-time job.
Yet I wish to make a return.
Not by rebooting My Life With Kant. Fuck that. But by turning THIS thing, whatever the hell it is, into a podcast. I’ve been kicking the idea around for awhile.
But like I said, I’m lazy. It takes us an EXTRAORDINARY amount of time. And I want to do it right.
“You can’t even get your blog to look right! What makes you think that you can do a podcast?” You’re probably asking.
First off, I like the bare-bones look. Secondly, If you don’t like it, feel free to fix it yourself. Thirdly, fuck off.
But really, a podcast is in the development stage. Don’t expect one anytime soon (not that you are) as I need to get my schedule squared away. Perhaps once when another side project is completed (which I’ll discuss sometime in the near future), then I’ll be able to dedicate myself full-time to the Philosophy Redux podcast.
But earlier this year, I did make an attempt at re-launching another podcast. It was called Let’s Get Sober. Look, I’m not good at naming things, alright? It didn’t last long, as I wasn’t very good at staying sober.
Yet I recently got a chance to listen to one of the episodes. I was quite surprised. Frankly, I thought it was going to be a piece of shit, yet I found myself thinking “Yeah, I make a good point!”.
Had I been able to stay sober, it might’ve taken off. Rehab.com asked me to mention them. For free of course. I know that doesn’t sound all that impressive, but when they approached me, I thought I was the shiz. It showed a lot of promise, but in the end, it wasn’t to be.
But maybe it can serve as a template for what’s to come. I like to think of it as the Phase II to Star Trek: The Motion Picture. And I know that that analogy sucks. But it’ll provide you with a peek behind the curtain of what will likely be the Philosophy Redux podcast.
Now the episode I’m presenting mentions this “9am God”. And boy, I forgot how much hangovers suck. Up until recently, I forgot that I even mentioned such a thing. But every alcoholic and addict finds themselves praying to that “morning God” that will forgive them of the sins committed the night before.
For some reason, we forget about those prayers. Perhaps we think that we can avoid such regrets.
I’m glad that I discovered this episode when I did. Being nearly two months sober, it’s easy to forget what the mornings after feel like. I needed the reminder.
So I hope you enjoy this sample of Let’s Get Sober.
And for good measure, here’s another one:
