Evil Blond Kid podcast: Foot in Mouth

EBKLogoHere’s the ninth episode of my Evil Blond Kid storytelling podcast. As the tagline for The Social Network put it: “You don’t get 500 million friends without making a few enemies.” Throughout my writing career I’ve surprised myself with how candid I’ve been over the Internet, and I worry what bridges I might have burned in the process. In this episode, I take a step back to ponder whether using a public podcast to air my moral anxieties over private memories is such a good idea… or whether overshare is the only way forward for a young writer. My story here is one of collegiate politics, revenge scandals, and a lesson of how these days, everything, from a campus newspaper to comments on a Facebook post, is written in ink. Subscribe on iTunes and like EBK on Facebook!

Evil Blond Kid podcast: Boy Scout’s Revenge

EBKLogoHere’s the eighth episode of my Evil Blond Kid storytelling podcast. With the Supreme Court striking down DOMA and California’s Proposition 8, attitudes toward rights for homosexuals are clearly shifting. One longtime red-blooded American institution that has finally jumped on board is the Boy Scouts — a group I spent my teenage years with, and one that just recently began permitting openly gay scouts (though not gay adult leaders). This month’s episode tells a story about how easy it is for a young man to lose his humanity in the wilderness… and the destructive power of a single word. Subscribe on iTunes and like EBK on Facebook!

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.
