I’d like to announce a “live” podcast event at The Drilling Company Theater, 236 West 78th Street, 3rd floor on February 11th, 2014.  I’ll be interviewing Artistic Director, Hamilton Clancy.  The event is free. Donations welcome.  Come be a part and then hang out afterwards.

And go see the play that’s running there at the theater right now, The Norwegians by C. Denby Swanson.

In this Off Off Topic episode I tell two stories…

… the day I felt like I might die from shortness of breathe and ended up having a pulmonary embolism!

… and one very uncomfortable and awkward online dating experience where I made a fool of myself!  Well, it was more of an almost date because we actually didn’t ever go out.

Topics covered in the podcast:

  • The introduction (0:00)
  • The day I almost died (4:03)
  • Hello mortality! (13:49)
  • Why online dating sucks (16:45)
  • What to never do with someone you meet at an online dating site (20:56)

As usual my buddy Sal Clemente (of Ultrasonic Rock Orchestra) who wrote the podcast theme song, “Here We Go Again,” plays us out.
