HumorOutcasts Radio “I am So Sick of White Guys” by Jim Corbett and Tim Jones

I am So Sick of White Guys Cover ArtHow many of us need more white guys? Probably not many of us right? So here’s a podcast with three more white dudes for your listening pleasure.

On behalf of HumorOutcasts Radio and HumorOutcasts.com, I recently had the chance to interview Jim Corbett and Tim Jones who are the authors of, “I am So Sick of White Guys – The Coloring Book Experience” available on Amazon. And we don’t mean the good “sick” either, but rest assured the book and the podcast are definitely “cool sick.”

Naturally to enjoy the content of this satirical and adult coloring book it would help for the reader to be progressively minded. Therefore, how “good” you may feel that the book may happen to be is rooted heavily in subjectivity.  However, even though I may not agree with all of the concepts on every single page, I can put on an objective hat. I have no issue stating that for me this book was a creative and witty isometric exercise into a fusion of political satire, humor, and social commentary.

The book’s illustrations were created by Steve Hartley, who in my opinion did a great job maintaining the recognition of the caricatures yet portrayed expressions that match the essence of the scenes and situations depicted.

In this day and age it doesn’t take much to inflame a segment of the public. Jim and Tim have had their fair share of angry blowback from the right and from the land of social media. They sent me various links prior to the interview to show me this aspect of their experience and perhaps to give me fair warning of some of the grief that I could possibly catch as the interview migrates its way through the digital media cyberspace.

We touch on some of this negative feedback during the podcast but we really wanted to stay centered on the humorous aspects of this book as well as the societal messages conveyed in the content.

If you share an illustration with someone and it sparks a conversation, it has done its job.

During our pre-production meeting I suggested to Jim and Tim, that given the provocative title of the book, it may help to give the interview some depth if I threw them a few curve ball questions as opposed to producing what amounted to an audio infomercial.  They were very receptive to the idea and they both did a fantastic job making their points in this podcast which give it an intrinsic value of substantive content above what would otherwise be considered as just a digital media marketing tool.

I hope you enjoy the podcast. You can play the podcast from this site below or under Billy Dees on nearly all of the major podcasting platforms including iTunes Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, TuneIn, and iHeartRadio.

 

HumorOutcasts Radio Interview with Molly Stevens

1BOTL coverI had a lot of fun interviewing Molly Stevens, who is the author of, “Boomer on the Ledge.”

Molly brought up some good points during the course of our podcast. One of the themes that seems central to her message is that it is never too late to discover new passions and ways to be creative as we mature. In fact, sometimes life experiences can enhance our ability to tackle original endeavors and challenges.

Another concept that seems very dear to Molly is the idea that humor is a great way to deal with life challenges and can also be a way to inspire others to examine their own place in life in a more lighthearted and positive fashion.

Molly lives in Maine and still works as a registered nurse part-time after a long and fulfilling full-time career in the medical field. More recently Molly discovered the joys of writing and over the past number of years has been showcasing her work on her blog ShallowReflections.com.

“Boomer on the Ledge” is an interesting blend of musings and observations about the positive and negative aspects of being a Baby Boomer as well as an inspired pictorial of images photographed by Molly to illustrate the perceptions conveyed in the book.

Molly is a contributor to HumorOutcasts.com and can be found on Twitter @ShallRef and on her Facebook pages Shallow Reflections and Boomer on the Ledge. Her book, “Boomer on the Ledge,” can be found here on Amazon published by HumorOutcasts Press. You can follow @HOPress on Twitter.

The day before Thanksgiving I had a chance to stop by the office of Roger Hollis with a mobile production set up and talk to him about running and his new book, the “Running Log.”

The “Running Log” essentially encompasses three elements; running, cartoons, and motivation. Roger has been a long-time runner and has enjoyed both the physical and mental benefits of running. He has also enjoyed drawing cartoons and illustrations for personal enjoyment and for various books.

My experience with Roger has allowed me to appreciate his down-to earth attitude and practical approach to most given situations with a little bit of humor as part of the mix.

I would describe the “Running Log” as a diary of sorts for runners and other fitness enthusiasts to document their progress alongside various illustrations and motivational witticisms authored by Roger. However, you don’t have to go by my

Podcast Interview

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Mary Farr. Her book, “If I Could Mend Your Heart,” deals with the subject of managing grief. This sorrow can be due to the loss of life but also any event or circumstance which heavily impacts our lives. The book is available here on Amazon.

Even though this is a difficult theme this is not a depressing podcast and this is not a sad book. Rather, Mary explains that often times carving out an alternative and positive path in life can be a part of how we manage the trials and tribulations that we all experience.
