Episode 19 Featuring: Stacie Odeneal - Mama Pirate
Episode 19 Featuring: Stacie Odeneal - Mama Pirate
Stacie Odeneal began her life as a weirdo in 1979 and continued as a respected but amateur weirdo for thirty years. She turned pro weirdo in 2012 when she was gifted #cosmicsprinkles, a practice of acknowledging the pile of universal reassurances that we are exactly who we need to be, and exactly are where we need to be, no matter where we are going. The gift of #cosmicsprinkles was just the encouragement Stacie needed to franchise her weirdness into all areas of existence. She abandoned a mediocre attempt at legal domination to focus on her legal practice as a child welfare law specialist and attorney in rural middle Tennessee.  In this weirdo capacity, she is invigorated as an advocate for children in foster care and adoptive families. Which is how she found her own family of weirdos when she and her husband adopted three children from foster care.  She calls them pirates because they talk funny, like to ride in boats, and steal things occasionally.  It was cute at first.  She now regrets that decision, wishing instead she had opted for something more “employed taxpayer” and less “mutiny all the time.”  But names have a way of sticking, so she is stuck. She now enjoys sharing her best tips for being your best weirdo as a teacher and public speaker, both in and out of the courtroom.  She has developed a curriculum designed to help everyone find their best weirdo entitled “You Matter” as well as several tools and resources to navigate adoption and litigation for both lawyers and laypersons. Show Notes: To follow Stacie’s Weirdo Wonderings and Wanderings, follow her on social media, look for #cosmicsprinkles.

Episode 18 Featuring: Thaddeus Lavalais - Looks Good on Paper
I met Thaddeus at an event we were working at. When I told him about my podcast, he said that's my kind of podcast. I knew I had found a perfect guest for my show. He is an artist, a graphic designer, and an art teacher who is trying to do art full time. Growing up, he had Darren Stevens from the TV show Bewitched as his role model. He wanted to grow up and use his art in a commercial endeavor, which is what he did for a number of years. Eventually, he realized he wanted to create art for himself, not for others, and that's what he considers success.

Eddie Merla received a scholarship to attend, what he jokingly calls, a place called Harvard. His dad had never heard of it and felt that it was too far from San Antonio, where they lived. So he ended up attending Texas A&M University. A natural introvert, he learned to operate in the extrovert-focused world through Public Speaking, which turned out to be the manifestation of a childhood dream, though he didn't know it at the time. It wasn't until he received a pink slip after 22 years in the corporate world that he found the courage to pursue his calling. He ended up designing the Project Management curriculum for the Glasscock School of Continued Education at Rice University.

Episode 9 Featuring Deepak Morris - Life of An Artistic Misfit
Life is Weird. You never know where it will take you. I "met" Deepak Morris in the early 2000s on a website called Ryze. It was a great social media website. Too bad Adrian, the founder, didn't have Zuck's finances. It was a much better platform. Along with many of the other 'Ryzers', a lot of us reconnected on Facebook. Deepak, while living in India, was one of the rare individuals who was able to communicate well with people in the west. When I interviewed him, I was both surprised and not surprised that he was able to speak with less of an Indian accent than most Indians who've been living in the West. There were many more Weird things about him that I discovered as we conversed. It was truly a joy to speak with him. Show Notes Deepak's Website Thank you for leaving a TIP here to support the show.

Akili Atkinson was born black and was adopted by a white couple, or rather, a white mother, as she puts it. AS such she had a unique or weird upbringing. Skin color was not the only difference, she stood tall over the rest of her family. Her mother made sure that she got the upbringing she deserved by taking on the society that said you can't do that and taught her that you can. This all prepared her for the tumultuous journey she had to take on when she gave birth to a boy who was later diagnosed to be on the autism spectrum. She tells her story of how being different, a Weirdo if you will, makes what she does fun and challenging at the same time. A very interesting conversation. Show Notes: Akili's Website
