The Walking Dead | Buttercup of Doom ep 19

BODep19-twd300Available FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In
This Week’s Rating: R (NSFW) — buttercup ratings system info here

In this episode, I have SPOILERS… and guests! Jeff Burk, editor at Deadite Press, hates the show but loves the comic, and Matt Blazi, zombie expert, loves the show and must protect it from Jeff’s opinion. With only a couple questions and nudges, I left them to duke it out while I ate popcorn (Cape Cod popcorn duos: cherry & cinnamon). They laughed, they cried, they disagreed, they bonded, and we came up with some new key phrases: galactically stupid, hate-watching, and going full-shane. It’s an hour and a half, and not work safe, due to guests rather than me!

Black Friday | Buttercup of Doom ep 17

This Week’s Rating: PG13 — buttercup ratings system info here

In this episode… I leave the origins of turkey day alone and simply express thanks instead. I laugh at the cartoons and invite you along. And then we dive into the evil, stupid, asinine event known as Black Friday. And I wrap it up with a touch of wisdom to bring my disgust and rage down.

Social Media 2.0 | Buttercup of Doom ep 16

BODep16-socialmedia2-300Available FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In
This Week’s Rating: NSFW (R) — buttercup ratings system info here

In the last episode, I defined & dissected social media, and then the attacks in Paris happened and social media exploded with the good, the bad, and the ugly… and warranted another round. This time, with friends. Kevin Strange and Dave Thomas swing the ugly stick at online behavior of both mortals and journalists, with a submitted rant from Gef Fox, as we look at herd mentality, blatant lies, guided conspiracies, and more. (Note: this week was recorded using Skype, so yes, it’s a different sound quality than normal but worth it!)

Social Media | Buttercup of Doom ep 15

BODep15-socialmedia300Available FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In
This Week’s Rating: PG13 — buttercup ratings system info here

In this episode … I define and dissect social media— why we have it, how we use it, when to nuke it. I give a 101 on the various ways to advertise without spamming on the multitude of platforms, break down intention vs reality for the big three, look at the generational preferences, and have a thought or two on the red coffee cup.

Pay Attention | Buttercup of Doom ep 14

BODep14-payattention300Available FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In
This Week’s Rating: R  —  buttercup’s ratings system info here

In this episode, I do solemnly promise to scream, swear, and be anything other than gentle in my approach, as I rant, vent, beg and plead people to Pay Attention: to the world around them, to their careers, and especially, while driving. I talk about the Samhain debacle without actually talking about it, I tell stories about local cops, and I spew at anyone and everyone driving while on their phone. I flick foreheads and then tell you to hug loved ones, because I’m all about balance.

Sponsors: the Horror Authors at Samhain Books: Jonathan Janz, Hunter Shea, Kristopher Rufty, and many more…

Trick or Treat | Buttercup of Doom ep 12

BODep12-trickortreat300Available FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In

Episode 12: Trick or Treat, aka The Kitchen Sink… as I cover all the little stuff not previously mentioned or big enough for a show of its own. From the history of Trick or Treating, “fun size” candy, and haunted houses, to decorations, traditions, and my refusal to mention the X(mas) word, making a strange “mmm-hmm” noise throughout whenever it intruded on my holiday (and later editing those mouth bleeps for real bleeps because well, they sounded horrible). Everything. Trick or Treating… tricks and treats, highs and lows, this one covers a LOT of ground.

Suggestions/Requests: to suggest/request, use the form here
