Howdy Stop That Or listeners (And should we have any fans yet: Thanks for rocking the free world). In this week’s episode of the Stop That or You’ll Go Blind, Evan and Tony break into the joyous discussion of Washington, DC’s Holocaust Museum. Ok, well “Joyous” maybe isn’t the most appropriate description, but Tony is excited that they just released an audio described tour for some of the key parts of the museum — a big step forward for making museums accessible for the blind, and a step backward for building up Tony’s faith in the kindness of humanity after spending the afternoon at the museum.
Launching into the episode with a “Bucket full of fun,” Tony and Evan begin to breakdown the complexities of religion and parenting. In an attempt to lighten the mood, Evan quizzes Tony on the ranking of Saturday Night Live (SNL) actors – Tony nails the top two (swish). They wrap up calling into question Tony’s childhood fascination with Richard Dreyfus (Jaws, Close Encounter of the 3rd kind), and tony keeps the faith by bringing it back to religion in Dreyfuss’ early full-length films, The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz (Any relation?(.
Welcome back to another episode of Stop That! Or you’ll Go Blind Podcast. This is a shorter episode, consisting mainly of musical ramblings, surely dating ourselves from our children’s tastes.
In this episode, Evan and Tony share some of their favorite musical artists, talk about what to do when music starts dropping the “F Bomb,” and just generally catch up. No major news or views in this episode. we’re still at that early stage of just trying to develop our own routine and voices. Thanks for listening, and feel free to follow.
Welcome to another episode of the Stop That Or You’ll Go blind Podcast (#2!) Forgive the lo-fi as we’re still trying to get set up with a solid means of recording – I”m working out of a hotel room in Minneapolis and Evan was in his car staying warm in the parking lot of his local library in Denver).
In this episode, Evan and Tony open up about what it’s like to be a parent with a disability. They talk about the challenges that go with it, from social life, academics, and trying to raise kids. They then go into trying to instill good taste in music for their children, meeting them half way in the 1980s (Ok, maybe not half way), and we leave our crime fighters waxing on their college radio days.
We’re still trying to come up with a theme song — can’t wait for the S&A letters to start rolling in. Below are music links mentioned and/or shared in this episode.
“What a Fool Believes” The Doobie Brothers
“I Ain’t Marching Anymore” Phil Ochs
“I Heard You Looking” Yo La Tango
“People Mover” Servotron
