Gen X Talks!

Episode 45: "Do you like your last name?"
Does anyone even remember pride in your own family? A family name when it meant something? Back when shame came upon a family by how you acted? Does anyone remember or even care? And how did we get here? This was a rambling incomplete podcast and I apologize. I was hit yesterday with devistating news and didn't finish the podcast until today. I'm still not ok. Please don't give up on the podcasts. We will be better.

Episode 41: "Mom and Dad as life moves on....."
Mom and Dad filled in for me. I left them some questions and of course they messed them all up. They rambled about old movies, Vin Scully dying and how it feels to have an empty house. For those that know them, this might feel like reading a letter from back home. :)

My dad went dark. Deep into a place I had never heard him go before. This was hard for me to hear. Mom cried while listening and I had to stop and walk away. But I am very glad he spoke on it. It's another piece of my dad I didn't know. I hope this helps someone.

My mom literally sat my dad down and threw 3 random topics at him from google news. LOL! Partially to get him back in front of the microphone and a little bit just to see if he could talk for 20 minutes about any random owrd or idea. A bowling ball or a lampshade. HA HA HA ....

Episode:21 "There, he finally just said it."
My dad woke up 2 days ago with more of the 'racism and how we all handle it' on his mind. To be fair he gets into a lot of discussions about it and it bothers him a lot. But the other day he went deeper. How do I know? He was up at 6am typing away very loud. I went to school but my Mom asked him to read some of what he was writing. So he did. She demanded he record some of those thoughts on a podcast, which he did. When I came home I listened to it several times. I'm not sure if I found anything that would get my Dad banned from social media. LOL But nobody wants to put their foot in their mouth while collecting their thoughts. In this episode my Dad, for the first time, pushes back on how groups promote their agendas and talks about how he feels they do more harm than good in some cases. I don't know..... you will either love it or hate it. I don't think this episode leaves any room for middle of the road loyalties. LOL. :) Remember, it's just my dads opinion.  GZK

Episode: 20 "Will Generation Z save us?"
In the news these days Democrats are afraid of "The great reset." They worry about 25 years of indoctrinating children might have a new "Zero Year." It's something we have all been discussing for 10 months. Now Dad interviews me and ties it all together. A solid piece of work that really gives America hope. (And I am trying to live up to it) THIS is a podcast I wont say will be a waste of your time. ...LOL... Like some of our other silly podcasts.  So, thank you in advance for taking time. GZK

October 15, 2021
Episode: 14 "Gen X. vs Gen Z. (my toys were better than yours!)"
My Dad and I were driving and talking about Gen X toys vs Gen Z toys. I gotta say now I'm jealous. Now I wanna go back and play with all the cool stuff you guys had. This is just my Dad rambling (again) about the good old days. I'm thinking I might put up a poll on Instagram letting you guys pick what the greatest toys were from Gen X youth. LOL Might start a war, but what the heck, right? 
24:31
September 29, 2021
Episode: 13 "How did America end up where we are?"
Well, you guys have been sending my Dad thousands of emails asking questions. The most popular question by far is always "How did we end up here?" How did America get so far off track? This podcast sheds a little light on just one aspect of the answer. Its not a funny podcast but it is very personal. Dad did a good job and I thanked him for helping out.  GZK

Well, UGH!!!!!!!!! I had to delete and repost this. Sorry.... This is what I get for being in a hurry. Anyways, My Mom, my Dad, one older brother and Iceman round out the podcast with me. Everyone well into their drinking night (except me) and the laughs start early and keep going! This dives deep in certain Lebowski lore. I m new to the movie I have only seen it 5 times but I love it! And I love listening to my Dad and his buddies argue over the facts of the case. (New things have come to light)  Maybe you guys might take exception to some of the diagnosis of the events and that's what blogs are for. :) Anyways, Eric Scott Williams left his Los Angeles music world behind and helped straighten out our equipment. So this will be the LAST podcast with crappy sound! Thanks Eric!!!!!

Episode 8: "F*#!*&*!@! Audio" (Me, Sister & Dad)
       Well, this went live about a week ago and some really cool fans got ahold of me right away that the audio was so low you couldn't hear it hardly at all and parts went dead completely. (not the cool 'dead air' like on our livestreams, but the bad dead air that people hate and gets you fired) ...           The recording was way to low,  and yet some audio was spiking so loud it distorted, and the overall vibe was to DELETE it and never look back. But that's not what I did. I tried to fix what I could. The low is better but the distortion is still present. There is a whitewash background noise present throughout the whole podcast also. I don't know... If you can't stand it, just let me know. Maybe if enough complain, i'll pull it. If enough like it, I'll leave it up. Drop me an email, let me know if it is tolerable I guess..... Again, sincere apologies. GZK Content: Millenial siter joins the podcast Oldest sons 10% inheritance Suck my big left toe Stories being raised by a GenX Dad And as always the phrase that pays. email your opinion if it is unbearable.....  GenxDadTalks@gmail.com

Ok, ok.... I know..... No GenXMom. Just NBA....  (What is the world coming to???) Lil' Miss Sexy Voice in Washington is gonna be pissed! Sorry, but GenXDad and GenZKid needed to get some of their arguing about this stuff out in the open! Yes, Dads voice is a little distorted a times on the mic. We are still working on the new gear. Current NBA, rules and all time Laker line up. And.... don't forget to find the 'phrase-that-pays' in the podcast and email it to us with your address for a free .... well.... something. :) Comments go here: (copy and paste, sorry)  https://genxtalks.com/f/nba--kid-vs-dad-

Episode 5: Black Superman? Leaving CA! Dad vs Dodge Dealer. (& more mediocrity)
I think we have figured out the formula and from here on out the podcasts should be really entertaining. Why? We are going to lie, make stuff up and use adult humor wherever possible. (I might be kidding) If you are reading this, there is no special words from GenZ. BUT..... if you text, comment somewhere we can see it or email the phrase "Banana hats are always blue!"  I will make sure we contact you for your address and get you some merchandise! This is a reward for actually reading these boring words... LOL

Dad solo talks: (Election/Politics/COVID)
I WILL NOT BE POLITICAL!  But then I was. 3000 emails and comments and a little nudge from GenZKid and GenXMom got me to do this small episode. So, I sat and gave you some insight to my thoughts on the last presidential election and COVID. You won't like it, I expect hate mail... But there it is. Comments and discussions should go here. : (copy and paste, sorry)  https://genxtalks.com/f/election-fraud-politics-covid GenXDad
