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!

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!)

Second Place | Buttercup of Doom ep 02

BOD-ep02second

Now Available at Project iRadio!

In this episode I read from a childhood favorite and then discuss reading with your kids (or with your parents when you were the kid). I cover cliches vs tropes in Writing 101: Tips from the Kiddie Pool. I lose my mind completely on the topic of participation awards, trigger warnings, and political correctness on a whole. But I lighten it all up with an amazingly funny comedian and a little piece of chocolate…

Welcome to the End | Buttercup of Doom ep 01

BOD-ep01welcome

Now Available at Project iRadio!

In this episode I discuss this, smile about that, destroy the idea of that while I rant about that, and have a moment about that other thing… and while I may tell you what I will discuss in this spot for future episodes, I will not for this one. The virgin voyage should be a surprise.

I will tell you the following people/parties are involved on some level… with love and respect and, of course, some snark.
