||CleanDay 805: Feeling good ’bout 46||First day of my forty-sixth year (or was that yesterday? Let’s say first full day and split the difference). How will I celebrate post-birthday? By getting over the extravagant amount of food I ate on my birthday, first of all; second,||3/17/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 804: Hey, I’m 46!||It’s my birthday today! A certain amount of self-reflection, which makes me both happy and sad, but mostly happy, on reflection. I’ve done a lot of stuff that most people don’t get to do — published comics, been in a documentary, travelled to En||3/16/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 803: Future School, Back to Bed||I guess the big news is I’ve been accepted to the LLM program at Queen’s, so as early as this September I’ll be taking classes and working toward a Master’s degree in Law. I’m an unconventional candidate for the school, not having a law degree||3/15/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 802: Grinding back on track||It’s really hard for me to know what’s genuine and what’s, you know, milking it a bit. I think it’s because I’m in my own head a lot of time time, and it’s hard sometimes to get out of it. It’s been busy at work, and tragedy on the persona||3/14/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 801: My Wife Copes Better Than I Do||Look to successful models — and today, that’s my wife, who has been dealing with tragedy I think better than me for the past 36 hours. I’ve been logey and distracted, sleeping poorly and dragging my butt this morning.||3/13/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 800: Difficult News||Running late this morning as we were up in the night with some upsetting news about a friend possibly passing away Stateside; even in the age of social media, you can still get caught playing Telephone when people who only half-know the situation are t.||3/12/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 799: Back to normal!||It’s been great having houseguests for the weekend, and weathering a comic convention without an existential collapse. It’s good to be back, though. Up early with my wife as she gets ready for the early shift, some brisk spinning, shower,||3/11/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 798: More Houseguests, Sadness Cake||Houseguests! Happy to have ’em, love to see ’em, but they do throw the schedule off — as does having a D&D session at 7 a.m. for REASONS. The big deviation this weekend is my wife’s grandmother passed on this week, and in her memory,||3/10/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 797: Shh! Houseguests!||A quick, quiet Jerkpod this morning because I have houseguests. Things are good in general! I feel like it’s still a big work push right up to vacation in 10 days, but on track to actually have a lot nailed down by vacation in 10 days,||3/9/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 796: Powerrrrring thrrrrrouuuggghhh||Insomnia! Powerful insomnia! Up like stupid late and running for the door, due partly to work stress and partly due to cats being bonkers. This is putting me off track, which is aggravating, but I’m trying to maintain the condition of “game” and s||3/8/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
