Any Last Words?

Any Last Words?

By Rudy

The common phrase for our favorite villains offers fear and hope. Fear for this being the end, but hope in the opportunity to leave a lasting mark. It's a very polarizing, bleak, and unsure time for all of us. Do you have any fear? Do you have any hope? Do you have...any last words?

Season 3 Bonus: All Last Words. There's a Reason The Comments are Below The Content
Thank you. Thank you to Becca, Aaron, Josh, Paul, Simone, Rob, Josh, Dane, Adam, Ed, Harrison, and Cisco. Thank you for listening. Thank you for getting this podcast to 3,000 listens as that was my goal in putting together these 12 Days of Podcasts. Thank you for allowing us to stray from the form at times with Simone and our Game Show with Josh and Rob. I copied last season's description to make this one and it says "it made me excited for Season 3 which I am all but confirming production for next year," I snuck in a tight 12 episode season right before the end of the year, but I did it and you helped! Last, but not least, thank you to Ernie who was brought on as a production assistant and marketing/sponsorship coordinator. You did nothing but sleep for this podcast, yet I will still keep you on as you provide the best support anyone could ask for.

Hello Sir! Seth graces us with his calm, unbiased presence on Episode 36, as we jump back in to wrapping up Season 2. When I first met Seth, he was working on a news package that included him eating a waffle on camera. Since then, I have learned there's way more to him than that. Seth appreciates nature, being creative, and trying to minimize technology use. We talk about all of those things and more including Dave Matthews Band, people who litter, and Seth's middle school sneaker flex. Here is the 90's video Seth created for the NJ Devils, which is a hockey team apparently.

Episode 34: Amen and Awomen (Taigen Has Risen)
ON GOD! Episode 34 is one of those special episodes that is a little different. No regular ALW format for this one, because it all just questions about God, Jesus, the Lord, Yahweh, Adonai, Morgan Freeman, etc. Taigen is very much a woman of faith, so me, a man of thin faith had a lot of questions. I asked most of them. We cover Hell, all kinds of Bible jazz, when Jesus is expected to return and God knows what else.  To avoid political conversation, Taigen and I held ourselves accountable by taking a chance on Bamboozled jelly beans if one of us goes political. One of us believes in God, the other is not convinced quite yet. So, which one of us got barf and which got coconut? Hmmmm.... Note: Apologies for the slight hum in the audio, I would tell you it was an audio oversight on my part, but I'd rather tell you it was God's presence in the conversation. Enjoy... Rate. Comment.

Episode 19: Cale from Birth
Episode 19: Cale from Birth
You gonna learn today! Episode 19 has been 19 episodes in the making. Since the spawn of the podcast, it has been my intention to have my brother on to talk about whatever felt right. This conversation helped me learn a lot about life as well as learn more about my brother. We talk about personal development and growth, self awareness, overcoming what you perceive to be hurdles, and who should be president. My brother is doing way more than being an inspirational person to listen to. He has his own podcast as well where he discusses the real life stories taking place with athletes as they create the mindset of evolving as a person around their athletic persona and lifestyle: https://anchor.fm/athleteevolved/ And he is embarking on teaching a new class at Neumann University called "Embrace the Mamba Mentality" on the work that Kobe Bryant put in to build and develop his mentality to become who he was and how it can relate to anything in life: https://www.inquirer.com/sports/dwayne-the-rock-johnson-xfl-15-million-20200803.html Rate.

Episode 18: Dad from Birth
Episode 18: Dad from Birth
Hey sonny boy! This is the father of all Any Last Word episodes because it is with...my father! My dad and I are very close, and this conversation, if anything, brought us closer. We talk about sports, cars, his other jobs outside of being an attorney, as well as the uniqueness of my brother's and my upbringing. I say this in the intro, but I'll put it here too: go have a one hour conversation with one of (or both, if you're lucky) parents. Throw your phones aside for an hour and just talk. Take my format or don't, it will be a nice hour spent, you'll learn a lot and your parents will enjoy learning a lot about who they helped you to be. Unless you suck, then I'm sorry. Can't help you. Maybe buy them dessert if you feel like you'll disappoint them. That would work for me. Rate. Comment. Subscribe. Send any questions or guest inquiries to AnyLastWordsPod@gmail.com.

Episode 17: Jerry from Interning
Rolling! Episode 17 welcomes my friend Jerry who was a real live adult working full time in TV sports when I was interning in college.

He is now lending the knowledge his experience brought him to students by teaching media.

Episode 13: Matt from Mutchies
Episode 13: Matt from Mutchies
It starts internally. Matt is my guest in Episode 13. I know Matt through a mutual friend (Kevin, his cousin) hence "Mutchies" in the title. Glad I could clear that up. Matt has been wanting to be on the pod since early on, but the schedule allowed him to come on during the timing of the Black Lives Matter movement which he wanted to take time to discuss. Matt is biracial and gives some very pointed, very important insight into his experience for those of us who may not know what it is like. In addition to that, we discuss laundry, our generation, shopping carts, things that are more expensive than they should be, and more. Rate. Comment. Subscribe.

The common phrase for our favorite villains offers fear and hope. Fear for this being the end, but hope in the opportunity to leave a lasting mark. It's a very polarizing, bleak, and unsure time for all of us. Do you have any fear? Do you have any hope? Do you have...any last words?
