This week’s episode of Beyond Extraordinary is sort of a rambling stream of consciousness featuring a variety of issues that have been on my mind. There is no guest. Just you and me. Wanna snuggle?
The name of this podcast is self explanatory, and you’ll hear how the genius behind this poetic title was achieved within the first five minutes of the show. Btw, the sound quality is a wee bit sketchy, due to a microphone malfunction that occurred somewhere during the recording process. Being the highly skilled tech engineer that I am, I tried all of the classic fixes (slamming it against the desk, throwing it on the ground, stomping on it, yelling at it) and nothing worked. Fortunately, I found a piece of junk headset mic in the dark recesses of my tool box (read: crap storage container) that worked in a pinch, but left a lot of popping and snapping noises due to the fact that the rickety old thing creaks with every jaw movement and facial expression. Along with that, there are some volume control issues, which I’ve been told is something I also struggle with outside of the podcasting realm.
With all of that said, this podcast combines moments of levity with some serious exploration of disturbing trends and current events, and ends with a little bit of Good News. Hope you enjoy.
