Adam Gets Ambushed
In this episode I’m talking to Dan and Adam, about addiction, why we have no sales and doing your own shit. Starting this podcast I wanted to tell great stories about the underworld of Boston sex, drugs, rock n roll. I didn’t expect that 90% of the interviews I did would circle back to drugs and addiction. I've realized that's where all the crazy shit comes from. Some people think I’m a fool to let someone fresh out of a drug treatment run the sales for ODB. Unfortunately, most of the people I know are addicted to drugs or alcohol. half the kids I grew up with are dead, I’m from Somerville. I want to work with people that understand your story is your strength, you don’t have to be sober. You just have to be honest, Boston is a city, these are the neighborhoods and we are its people. If you want to work on video, sales, podcasting, accounting we need your help. We all have a story to tell, ODB is a place where you can learn how to tell it honestly.

30 Day Challenge: Sexual Kung-Fu and Quitting Smoking
In this episode we're talking about our April Challenges, 30 days of Sexual Kung Fu - Hi Ya! Learn about my month studying the book Taoist Secrets of Male Sexual Energy and Dan’s absolute failure of an attempt to quit smoking with the help of Pure Hemp Smokes. The guys at Pure Hemp Smokes sent us a bunch of packs to help Dan quit smoking. It's basically weed with no THC, just CBD. Dan said they didn’t help him quit, but I don’t think its fair to blame Pure Hemp Smokes for Dan’s shortcomings. Members of the audience have called Dan mentally weak, and I don’t think its fair to associate Pure Hemp Smokes with Dan’s weakness. I had a bunch of people try them, some people said they tasted like shit. Other people love them, they say it gave them a feeling of calm and helps replace the buzz they get from a cigarette. I think they taste and smell like the weed I used to buy in middle school. If you’re interested in a tobacco or nicotine replacement, you can order online. Check them out at PureHempSmokes.com

Barefoot and Pregnant
In this episode, I’m talking to an important person in my life, my Aunty Diane. Technically she’s my cousin, but that doesn’t really express the relationship.

As you’ll learn from this episode her strength, courage and deep compassion for the people around her didn’t come easy. She fought hard and struggled with life and came out on the other side still searching and seeking and doing her head-stands at 77.
