Absolutely Not Edited

Bible verse of the day is Proverbs 30:2 (NET)

Rob delivers a short, no-edit, no post-production, one-take episode, which contains a mention of Dave Winer (the father of podcasting) and successfully does not include any of Carlin’s 7 words, and incorporates discussion of sleep and the lack thereof, good news related to the near future, some (strenuous!) mental math about hours, plans to transition to graveyard, observation about what graveyard implies, a story about a co-worker’s mishap, and ends with a chestnut about unreliable Uber.

TPIDNTY: My Real Need

I was surprised to find that my biggest personal prayer request sounds more like achieving a result and not overcoming on the way to it, one of those “listen to what you are saying” moments, and touches on previous visits to the hospital, and quits for the day (night).

Another First Day

The one where Rob reveals his new gig, and speaks to opening a new chapter doing something completely different than what has come before, and thanks his wonderful sister for all the support and encouragement, then discusses important choices in note paper, and last minute shopping, yielding a limited choice of materials, and then subsequently finding that in college I used wide ruled paper, and shares his hope that in 2016 there’s no need to keep paper written with a pen but instead expecting to take notes into the excellent Evernote, and then goes on to speak about Andrew Sullivan’s excellent essay My Distraction and recommends it for your edification, and cannot leave an episode go without mentioning podcast production and admits RRR hasn’t gone how he has expected but instead maybe the fancy editing isn’t required anymore with this show, and closes thinking about the last time he had a first day at a professional job.

[I cut this track on September 27 but then hit some technical difficulties… which are resolved… so here it is!]
