Evil Blond Kid podcast: Kiss and Tell

EBKLogoHere’s the newest episode of my Evil Blond Kid storytelling podcast. I’ve been hesitant to include this story for a few reasons. It’s a regrettable hookup tale that should appeal to your “drunken frat guy” sensibilities, and one that’s awkward enough for me to change names. Sure, a lot of guys have a story like this, but the reason I find mine worth telling is how surreal it seems to me in retrospect, like a chapter torn out of a book about someone else. Certainly a pivotal watermark on my decent into immorality. This episode deals with racier subject matter than usual. I talk about adult things and use adult language. Because I’m an adult.

Evil Blond Kid podacst: Boy Versus Cat

EBKLogoThe newest episode of my Evil Blond Kid storytelling podcast is online. In this episode, I tell a story of man versus beast, and the loss of humanity paid to win the battle. While perhaps not as classic a tale as Moby Dick or as badass as Liam Neeson versus All of the Wolves, I can assure you my story is quite the nail-biter. Cat lovers beware: while I’m sure you’ve stood by me throughout all the horrible things I’ve done to elderly strangers, family members, ex-girlfriends, and God, this may be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.
