Superstitions | Buttercup of Doom ep 13

13bod-superstitions300Available FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In

Because this is the 13th episode, I thought it would be appropriate to discuss Superstitions, and because I promised last week, Urban Legends. From Bloody Mary to the Hook Hand, from black cats to pop rocks, from the truth to internet hoaxes, we cover campfire frights and facebook fallacies… I ask a couple questions (join conversation/answer here), I offer up some readings and links, and I request something of YOU this time. I hope you had a great Halloween, now come enjoy your sugar hangover with the Buttercup of Doom!

Bad Manners | Buttercup of Doom ep 08

BODep08-badmanners300Now Available at Project iRadio!

In this episode I talk about “writing what you know” for the 101 kiddie pool. I share a giggle about a barbie gone viral. I take a look at ‘Merica and manners, and by “take a look” I mean vent, spew, whine and try really hard not to cuss (2nd pg13 Buttercup in a row!). Then I wish you all happy adventures. And once again remind you we’ll be exploring the voyeurism used for good purposes — Periscope Q&A Wednesday night, 8.30 pm Eastern Standard Time. Get the app, meet me there!

ADD Nation | Buttercup of Doom ep 06

BOD-ep-addNation300Now Available at Project iRadio!

In this episode … I forget to drink coffee, on purpose, and become a scatterbrained example to go with the main rant. But there’s a double-shot of rants this week—as the “puppy dogs & sunshine” portion of the show is hijacked into a secondary rant of sorts. Then we slam into the real rant and cover the 140-character blip that society has become, loves, leans on, and let’s destroy them. I explain the title of the show, nod at a lost friend, send you book shopping, and of course, toss a touch of slow-your-roll gypsy wisdom to wrap things up.

Hippie on the Loose | Buttercup of Doom ep 05

BOD-ep05-hippie300Now Available at Project iRadio!

In this episode … This week we have our first special guest: writer, ad-guy, hippie, and much more — Robert Ford. Normal people might have a guest on and ask them questions, like an interview. I’m not normal. On this podcast, I invite special guests to rant! And Bob Ford’s ranting topics of choice (aka the buttons I knew existed and pushed without guilt) include bad book covers, shittily© written self-published books that make more money than God, and well… go ahead a listen for more! We also cover the evils of “cholesterol in fiction” (aka “that” and other perils of prose) in the Kiddie Pool 101, the reading this week is from Bob’s collection in Bob’s own voice, and I only interrupt him 273 times (except during the reading). Enjoy!!

Bob Ford can be found on:  blogspot-squareicon  fb-squareicon  twitter-squareicon  (note: no WWW, remember to message him suggestions for his not-dotcom!)
