ChrisCast Episode 9: Mindfulness Meditation: Matins, Lauds, Vespers, and Compline
I needed to have a Mindfulness practice and chose the daily prayers that the Anglo-Catholic Episcopal Church likes to follow based on the Book of Common Prayer and at least 4 times a day prayers based somewhat on how the Benedictine Monks and Monasteries prayed, including Matins, Lauds, Vespers, and Compline.

ChrisCast: Episode 8: I Was a Teenage Russian Troll
All anyone is talking about these days is how armies of Russian trolls got До́нальд Джон Трамп (Donald John Trump) elected President of the United States. They did this through a unique witchcraft and voodoo that normal mortals cannot resist. How did Влади́мир Влади́мирович Пу́тин (Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin) and his malintent Веб-бригады (web brigades) so easily, cheaply, effortlessly, quickly, and effectively puppet-master our innocent, vulnerable, and naïve online American yokel brains into becoming mindless hordes of racist, sexist, nationalist Nazi deplorables. Russia isn’t the only country that’s leveraging highly-trained covert operatives with bomb-proof non-disclosure agreements to sneak around online in deep cover, pretending to be other people, genders, ages and emulating the interests, hungers, passions, fears, dreams, and goals of communities that could really benefit the agendas of their clients. Okay, I wasn’t actually either a teenager or Russian when I was an OG Russian Troll and part of the Russian Troll Army.

ChrisCast Episode 7: America is actually a nation full of surprisingly superstitious spiritualists
Americans love astrology, the paranormal, the spiritual world, Angels, demons, aliens, monsters, spirits, the afterlife, and believe that the eschaton will happen within their own lifetime. A world where astrology and numerology and the spirit world is prescient and present and real and active in our lives. America is actually a nation full of surprisingly superstitious spiritualists

Just an update on why and how I am doing a one meal a day intermittent fasting diet, my yesterday failing, some discovered benefits, and lots and lots of ASMR girl-esque ramblings, shaggy dog stories, and story tellings—all adding up to about a half hour of your precious fluids and lifespan.

ChrisCast Episode 4: 24601; Part 2: Electric Boogaloo
I tried a bunch of editing stuff and splitting stuff. I don't even know if the storytelling is linear or if it's even listenable with all the clips and so forth in between and I am pretty sure the files got shuffled and are out of order so maybe the end of the story is at the beginning. So, I put in a warning. Otherwise, enjoy!

ChrisCast Episode 3: Je ne sais rien
Sort of a ramble, sort of a rant. Trying out background music and more of the editing tools that the Anchor.fm Android app tools and so forth. What do you think? My voice is very hot, very loud, but at least I'm highly audit and very easy to comprehend. Pretty much just a My Dinner With André sort of thing, the sort engaged in by the madman who lives under the bridge. Enjoy and let me know what's up with you and what you think!

ChrisCast Episode 1: Sportif (or, how the hell did I get like this, eh, FFS!?)
This is the episode where I almost cop to an eating disorder and then complain a lot about how heavy I am. Food is a constant struggle Weight is a constant struggle I am currently 350 lbs (158.75733 kilos, 25 stone) I love to run (I call it my zombie shuffle) I love to bike (please help me name my 2010 Surly Steamroller) I love to row (100 lbs too heavy, I'll sink the boats—even the fat one) I love to swing kettlebells (call me Girevik) I really love Spin class but haven't gone recently. I hope this podcast is more fun than depressing. Let me know!

Oy Vey, My Lumbago!
Testing the recording, testing the premise, seeing if I like it, trying to be funny, but we'll see.
