Episode 21: Who are Flat Earthers and How Can They Believe That Sh*t?
The holidays are over and it’s time to get real…because…THE EARTH IS FLAT! Actually, it’s not, but there are those who believe that it is. And that’s what this episode is all about. I am not objective or fair in this episode, at all. On this subject, I don’t know how you can be. But, listen and decide for yourself. There are tons of links at the bottom of the show notes for you to explore…if you really want to… Stay tuned at the end for a promotion from the Cherry Cola Podcast (@COLAPODCAST).

Quick Hit 009: What is Identity?
Identity is such a complicated word with so many applications and connotations that this was really the only way to discuss it without creating a whole new podcast for it. This Quick Hit isn’t comprehensive in any conceivable way and it isn’t intended to be. This subject, though, is the embodiment of what this podcast tries to do, when it’s not mired in the indulgences of its host. Please rate and review the show wherever you get your podcasts. It helps expand the reach of the show, provide much needed feedback, and help build my cult of personality.

Episode 19: What's Your Favorite Curse Word??!! (Epically NSFW)
I LOVE PROFANITY! It’s fun. It’s dynamic. It’s effective.  In this episode, I discuss my love for this topic, I teach the mouse in my pocket a little bit about George Carlin and how he inadvertently ended up in front of the Supreme Court, and I fixate a little too much on Dennis Franz's ass (You see, kids, Dennis Franz was an acclaimed actor in the 90s on the now quaint cop show NYPD Blue).   Plus, added some creative commons background music for mood throughout.

Episode 18: Want Your Own Cult of Personality?
My research seemed too narrow on this, so I did a lot of freestyling in this episode...which got edited out for the most part.  But, my approach to the subject is certainly open to debate and discussion.   Stay tuned for two promos from Hot Tea, Cold Cases (@hotteacoldcases) and Morbidology (@morbidology) at the end of the episode.   Please rate and review the show wherever you get your podcasts at (especially if it's Apple).   Twitter:  @IHAVESOMANYPOD E-mail:  Ihavequestionspodcast@gmail.com Facebook:  Facebook.com/ihavesomanyquestionspodcast

Episode 17: Not-So-Random Questions with Author/Creator V.P. Morris
MY FIRST GUEST!!  Author and Audio Drama Creator V.P. Morris (@deadletterspod, @TeaWriteRepeat) came on the show to ask and answer some random questions (more or less).  We talked a lot about her writing, her audio drama podcast, The Dead Letters (https://deadletterspodcast.podbean.com) and a host of other interesting topics.  Please subscribe to her show (as I have) and follow her on Twitter.  She was an absolute joy to talk to and I look forward to doing so again.   Please rate and review the show wherever you get your podcasts.

Quick Hit 008: Force the President to Testify at His Impeachment?
The news is changing rapidly and it seems a certainty that President Oompa Loompa will be impeached by the House of Representatives.  But could they force him to testify at his Impeachment trial in the Senate?   Please rate and review the show wherever you get your podcasts at.   Check out a promotion for the Morbidology podcast at the end (Twitter: @Morbidology).   Twitter: @Ihavesomanypod E-mail: Ihavequestionspodcast@gmail.com Facebook:  Facebook.com/Ihavesomanyquestionspodcast

Episode 16: What is Virtue Signaling (Everybody does it)?
This was a surprising episode in regards to the primary topic.  I was expecting to get all ranty like the Incel episode.  Instead, though, through the power of extremely limited research, I revised my approach.  Also covered on this episode are my affinities for Dwayne Johnson and Star Trek: The Motion Picture as well as the absence of movies about September 11, 2001.  Check out @IncelProject, which I namedrop toward the end.  Also, stick around for an ad for @Morbidology at the end.

Episode 15: What is Our Current Economic Situation Anyway?
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Economics and an MBA.  I'm also a political junkie with a minor in Political Science.  So, in this episode, in an effort to help those with insomnia...or constipation, I'm gonna bring all of my poor educational choices together and talk about trade, Brexit, tax cuts, the Fed, and Trump.   Stay Tuned to the very end for an advertisement from The Morbidology Podcast (www.spreaker.com/user/morbidology; https://morbidology.com; Twitter: @morbidology), a true crime podcast.  Definitely check their show.   Please rate and review the show wherever you get your podcasts at.  It helps raise the visibility of the show as well as build my cult of personality.   Please review the show's Open Submission policy on Twitter.   Comments/Questions/Criticisms/Concerns can be sent to:   Twitter:  @Ihavesomanypod E-mail:  Ihavequestionspodcast@gmail.com Facebook:  Facebook.com/ihavesomanyquestionpodcast

Episode 14: What the F*ck is an Incel? (Totally NSFW)
There's a WHOLE lot of profanity in this episode.  It's definitely NOT for kids.  This episode by an episode from the Welcome to My Show podcast (available everywhere you get your podcasts).   It's just a one-hour rant.  In hindsight, I may have not been totally fair to Incels, but I'm okay with that.  Let me know what you think about this one.  Please rate and review the show wherever you get your podcasts.   E-mail:  Ihavequestionspodcast@gmail.com Twitter:  @Ihavesomanypod Facebook:  Facebook.com/ihavesomanyquestionspodcast Skype:  live:ihavequestionspodcast

Episode 1: The Phantom Pilot (Remastered)
In honor of the One-Year Anniversary of the show, I thought it would be nice to walk down memory lane by rebroadcasting the Pilot Episode (back when the show was called I Have Questions).  However, to score cheap publicity, I've remastered this episode to improve the audio quality of my voice (because it's all about me), replaced the intro music with something that sounds better, as well as exit music.  The music added are new compositions (using loops in Garageband).  And, much like Dark Side of the Moon, I'm sure this will not be my only crack at remastering this episode (see me in 2020).  E-mail:  IHaveQuestionsPodcast@Gmail.com.  Twitter:  @IHaveSoManyPod.  Facebook:  Facebook.com/IHaveSoManyQuestionsPodcast.   Please rate and review the show wherever you get your podcasts!   Please review the Open Submission policy on Twitter.  I'd love to have you on the show.

Episode 13: Another Curtis Hill Update (again?)
Though I'm two weeks late, it's the one year anniversary of the podcast (don't worry, I don't treat my wedding anniversary the same way).  So, to celebrate, ANOTHER Curtis Hill update.  To get completely up to speed, please go back and listen to Episode 2A and Episode 7 (which I recommend 3 dozen times throughout this episode).  Stay to the end for a couple of personal observations.  And, as always, please rate and review the show.  Please open the Open Submission policy, if you'd like to be on the show.  @Ihavesomanypod (Twitter); Ihavequestionspodcast@gmail.com (e-mail); www.facebook.com/ihavesomanyquestionspodcast (Facebook).

Quick Hit 007: What is a tariff?
There is a random error in the editing, which I apologize for, but it doesn't effect the overall mini-sode.  This is the first part in a series going into select aspects of our current trade policy and some of the background that goes into them.

Episode 11: So What's Up With The Mueller Report?
After the ultimate geekiness of the Star Wars Megasode, I thought I'd wade into the Mueller Report and try to put it into context to a certain extent.  But rather than rehash the report, which you should try to read, I thought I would recite directly from other sources instead.

Quick Hit 005: Ralph Northam and Episode 6
The recent turmoil in Virginia regarding Gov. Ralph Northam's, alleged, prior racial insensitivities allowed me to swing back around to Episode 6.  It's not necessary to listen to Episode 6 before this Quick Hit, but you should definitely swing around to it to get the full context.

Quick Hit 004: Dysfunction vs. Malfunction (NSFW)
If you're not comfortable with a 5-letter word that rhymes with cleanest the meanest, this is probably not a good one for you.

Episode 9: What's Been Going On?
A contemporaneous episode about current events...more or less.  Within 24 hours of this episode being recorded, one topic discussed had changed...go figure.

Quick Hit 003: 5 Audio Drama Recommendations
A kid-friendly episode!  Given my podcast obsession, I thought I would recommend 5 audio dramas that I thoroughly enjoy (as much as my opinion matters).  Be warned.  "EOS 10" and "Hello From The Magic Tavern" are not kid-friendly, if your kids are under the age of 15 or so.  These audio dramas should be on any platform where you get your podcast fix from.

Episode 8: Is there a War on Christmas?
SALTY LANGUAGE ALERT!! This is likely the last episode of 2018 and it seemed appropriate to address one of the more cynical efforts at generating controversy in recent years (Can you tell my view on this question?).

Episode 7: Show Changes? / Curtis Hill Update / A Great Rapper?
This is episode 7 but in the episode, I say it's Episode 8. OOPS! Here's the link to the Curtis Hill articles that I referenced in the episode: https://www.indystar.com/story/news/crime/2018/10/23/indiana-attorney-general-curtis-hill-not-face-criminal-charges/1732135002/

Episode 6: How will Social Media and the Internet Affect Politics 35 years From Now?
There were microphone issues in this episode, particularly on the back half of the recording. But, I really enjoyed this topic because of how prescient it's going to be over the next several decades. H/T to my wonderful wife for giving it to me...while I was in the dentist's chair.

Episode 5: Pearl Harbor v. 9/11; The Meaning of Life

Quick Hit 001--Are Things As Bad Now As They've Ever Been?

Episode 3: Why do we like what we like?
Upon editing this episode, I realize that not every idea or notion presented was brought to its fullest clarity or resolution. At times, as I'm predisposed to do, I get sidetracked or wander off the clear path. So, I hope you'll forgive me on this one and fill in the appropriate blanks for me as you listen.
