RMP – Ep b21: Addictive Dysfunction

Podcasting is hard…

…but that’s what she said.

This week we talk about talks about something most people don’t want to talk about.

Show notes:

– Kent made gokyu, took his son rollerskating, and finished the weekend watching the WWE Royal Rumble

– Amos took his wife to see Rodney Carrington and prepped watching the Mad Max trilogy

The Podcast Method on the 5by5 network is highly recommended for beginning podcasters

– Kent was a bit underwhelmed by the Fantastic Four teaser

– Amos watched a few TED talk videos, and these three convinced him to give up pornography:

The great porn experiment | Gary Wilson | TEDxGlasgow

– The demise of guys?| Philip Zimbardo | TED2011

– Why I stopped watching porn | Ran Gavrieli | TEDxJaffa

– We take the TED Talk Challenge…well, we kinda created the challenge, but whatever…

– We officially introduce ritualmisery.com

– If you’d like to share your unique military stories, please let us know. We’d like to share your story and help others going through similar situations.  Also, if you have a situation you’d like help with, we’d love to help!

– 2004 BL86 came a little too close for Kent’s comfort and his discomfort was supported by the craziness found at abovetopsecret.com

– Thank you Richard Gunther for the amazing feedback!

– Anthony/Amos/Ethan needs to pick out a damned name

RMP – Ep b16: Hacking Bullshit, Literally

Amos is back…

…and tries to explain away his absence, though he was hoping Kent would give a little more leeway after having to do all the work himself last week.

This week, Kent and catch up a little too much and you’ll have to watch the video for the half that was edited out.

Also, Amos watched his kids kick ass at soccer while Kent was getting talked into playing a ridiculously named card game (but he liked it).
