The Whitebeard and TK Podcast

By T. Anthony Bland
After losing my wife in 2016, TK and I embarked on a life in the Outdoors. For me it was a time to build new memories for my daughter. Check out our IG hashtag #WhitebeardandTheKid the father and daughter hiking team. In 2017 we started our adventures with camping and traveling, then added hiking when we started the 52 Hike challenge in 2018 but that's not all we do. We talk about everything on the adventures, the outdoors, politics, news, homeschooling, pop culture, music and movies. Our show is all about you in the backseat listening in. Consider supporting us as you ride along, we need gas

The Whitebeard and TK Podcast

T. Anthony Special Edition: "Storm The Capitol, It's a revolution!"
I was made aware of the capitol riot late yesterday. I haven't watch the news in a while. No I don't live under a rock but I do try to just live life. Less news more reading, helps with that. The people were called "Trump supporters" and some called themselves "Patriots". A riot and breaking into the Capitol building nullifies all of that. Here's my reaction, raw and going on what little information I have. I love my country...

"Kamala Harris Takes The Vaccine... The Last Show and Roadtrip of 2020"
Twenty Twenty, the year of the great quarantine, political craziness, media manipulation, Political pandering... and some great and trying moments. There are a few things to review about this year, but a lot rejoice and remember. Today, is the last show... will it be the last of all time or just for the year? Plus we took a day trip up Route 97 in NY this past weekend. If you're ready to hear about all this, jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.

"Babbling Brooks"
It's Tuesday! And we're here for you! I promise you there was a thought and plan for this episode. Not sure where the train left the track... but it did quickly. Lol. Actually, isn't this how our podcast started out? The show started with hello, went into "Mad About You" and landed somewhere in space. Anyway, jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.
December 22, 2020
Happy "Dead" Monday! Since TWD and it's universe is on a break. We decided to check out what else is out there in the Zombie world. This week, it's a Korean film, "#ALIVE". Korean zombies are hilarious! Come on, let's talk ill of dead.
December 21, 2020
"Battlefield: Fighting Depression"
It has been widely known and said that the Mind is a battlefield. Our rise and fall happens in our heads long before it is manifested in "real life". About two weeks I started searching for a therapist. Last week was our first televisit. The first thing I noticed, was I didn't stutter in a place I normally would under stress... This is not a subject or part of my life I(Whitebeard)want to talk about. But maybe someone needs to hear it.

"A Weekend Adventure That Went Bust, Podcast Update and A Tragedy In The Outdoor World"
December has been a rollercoaster month for us. And the lack of shows has proven that. Today we discuss some of what's been happening and ideas for the future of this show and possible video series. Wanna hear about it? Jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.
December 15, 2020
Walking Dead Universe: "Rick Grimes Movie Update, Madison Is Alive and Fan Theories"
Happy Walking Dead Monday! Sorry we missed you last week. Today we go over the promised Rick Grimes trilogy and rumors of Madison's return to Fear The Walking Dead. If your ready, let's talk ill of the dead.
December 14, 2020
"John Money The Father Of Gender Identity"
Many know the latest star in the world of "Theories", gender identity, but few know the origin story and fewer understand the impact of John W. Money's theory on sexual idenity and gender study.
December 10, 2020
"Carl Lentz's Affairs... Worse Than You Know"
In an interview with the woman who made their affair famous, the news outlet described Lentz as "Justin Bieber's Hipster pastor", that my friends is a problem. When pastors like politications, become celebrities, a fall is bound to happen.
December 10, 2020
"A Little Bit of Christmas Wisdom..."
Happy humpday! This is a little ahead of schedule but I thought it was worth it. As soon as Thanksgiving ended, Christmas preparations began. For many it will be a hard time, for others a celebration in rebellion against governmental orders. And the rest of us have forgotten why we even celebrate... hopefully today, we can focus on the Joy. Maybe, just maybe, that will brighten our midweek and prepare us for the coming weeks.
December 9, 2020
"Nappy Hoe?!"
It's been a crazy "news" week! Happy Friday! Whitebeard has been quiet on current events, but his head nearly exploded this week and he couldn't hold his tongue. So... jump on today's crazy train rant, he covers Ellen/Elliott Page, the non famous Cyrus sibling, former president's vaccine film and AOC's $58 sweat shirt. All aboard!!!
December 4, 2020
"Boundary Lines"
Happy Humpday! A great big joy killer and peace taker is a broken boundary line. A fench with hole is pointless, especially if you want to protect your chickens and vegetables. And so it is with our lives when someone or thing crossing a line that robs us of our peace. I don't know about you but I want to protect that small bit of sanctuary. That's what I'm focusing on today.
December 2, 2020
Home Schooling Chronicle: "Home Economics, benefits and pitfalls of a teenage daughter's baking"
In this "bouns" episode you'll hear Whitebeard mention it's Wednesday. That's because this was originally last Tuesday's show, which was going to air late. We never got back to the second half, due to school work, errands and Thanksgiving the next day. The whole week was a wash! Anyway, it's all done. Today is a lighthearted look at TK's home economics class... and how much extra pounds it's costing Whitebeard and we down mean British money. Ready? Jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.

"Not One But Two Bears On The Trail"
Oh my gosh, this weekend was awesome! It's been a while since Hike 47 of our 52 Hike Challenge. In fact we should be on 50 this coming weekend. But life happens. Sometimes good and many times bad. I (Whitebeard) truly didn't want to go anywhere. And an incident that occurred during the "Holiday" was the cause. Everything went down hill from there. However dragging myself out of bed and to the trail was the best medicine. As always TK and I thrive in the outdoors. She didn't even want to leave the Puddle Jumper once we got home. And the absolute best part was.... we saw two black bears!! We've seen lots of animals on our hikes, but this one, hike 48 had the best ones yet. Want to hear about it? Jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.

Walking Dead Universe: "The Deepest Cut" and "In This Life"
 Happy Walking Dead Monday! This week there's no Fear, as they are on a mid-season break. But we have the last two episodes of World Beyond season one and you know Whitebeard is happy. In episode 9, Elton loses grip on reality and episode 10, Huck's betrayal is deeper than we thought. And Whitebeard was right about Hope. So, are you ready to talk ill of the dead? let's go.
November 30, 2020
"Trees Along The River"
Good morning and Happy Humpday! In the age of instant, 24/7 and too much information, it's incredibly hard to get good information or even good advice. Our minds have to sift through all that comes into it. When seeking help from others we need to be careful... because unfortunately they may be getting their information from the same source. let's figure out what we might do better so that we might have better outcomes.
November 25, 2020
Walking Dead Universe: "The Sky Is A Graveyard" and "Damage From The Inside"
Happy Walking Dead Monday! Today we cover Fear's season 6 episode 7 and World Beyond's season 1 episode 8. And!!! For the first time, Whitebeard confessed he liked a WB episode. Though Iris remains to be a thorn in his side. Alicia returns... can we really trust Srand?... and killer Morgan saves the day. It's time to talk ill of the dead.
November 23, 2020
"Urban Cowboy": Reliving the magic of a classic film with Generation Z"
Happy Friday! This week's big feature is "Urban Cowboy", you can catch on Amazon. Two generations many decades and "cultural norms" apart, watching a "classic" and "iconic" film can be problematic. For instance, they are "pre" and "post" political correctness. What was funny once is now considered taboo. I'll say this, this was fun watching TK,'s reaction and a pleasure for me to see a young Debra Winger(massive crush) and John Travolta again. Also in this episode, update/review on series we last mentioned and a new one we started, "Queen Sugar". Go get your popcorn and coke with two straws and let's get into this.
November 20, 2020
"Is Cannabis The Next Oil Industry?"
This Thursday a quick update on things mentioned last week. And a look at the Marijuana industry in Pueblo Colorado. Is it a good business to invest in when weighing the cost and reward ratio. I found this article about this town, thought it was interesting as well as pondered the idea for myself.
November 19, 2020
"Lando Running Wild"
Happy Humpday! "The Epic Family Roadtrip" is a YouTube channel we like to watch. It's about a family of five... or six, now that they have Lando. And they Overland travel, camp and enjoy adventures along the way. It's funny, Lando gives us so much joy to watch. He runs all over the place, sometimes he actually frolics like the deer. He seems to be born for the wild... and to be free. Like us, we weren't meant to be chained to a desk forever. Today how about we take some time to be a bit like Lando the Adventure Dog.
November 18, 2020
"Go Take A $#@! Hike!"
It's November 17th! National Hiking Day also known as National Take A Hike Day. Today we discuss some of our favorite places to hike, some of our most difficult hiking terrains and why as crazy as it seems, we'd go back to some of them. Although we didn't get a chance to go out for hike today we encourage you to go... if not today then this weekend. We're ready, are you? Then jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.
November 17, 2020
Walking Dead Universe "Jasper's leg"
Happy Walking Dead Monday! This week's Walking Dead episodes were pretty sleepy. Nowtheless, we have Fear's "Bury Her Next To Jasper's Leg" and World Beyond's "Truth Or Dare". Will John and June...(I not telling)? Will Captain Hook be Virginia's new call sign? We'll see... in the meantime, let's talk ill of the dead.
November 16, 2020
"The Trojan Horse As A Political Strategy"
"The election is over!", they say. But is it? Actually, no, it is now in the hands of the courts. And contesting a vote or election isn't anything new, though many will have you believe it is. It's this belief that has Americans at each other throats... right where the media and politicians want us. But there is more behind this process as a puppet and puppeteer. Like that big, supposed, empty wooden horse. Unfortunately, many of us aren't paying attention. (**at 09:08 I say defunct. I meant, debunked**)
November 12, 2020
"Even Though..." Hold On To Hope
Happy Humpday! It's a gloomy morning in NYC today. It's enough to make a blue mood even worse. So many of us are in that head space right now. Where we just want to give up. So many loves ones have passed on and the holiday season seems empty. Plus the past 11 months haven't help. But instead of thinking of that today, let's try to focus on Hope. And the weekend that's coming... Habakkuk 3:16-18 is a good place to start.
November 11, 2020
"The Return of The 3rd Stage, Starting Over and Cooking Babies"
Yep... it's a weird one today. Well, not really, but we did pretty much just turned on the mic and talked. Whitebeard has been dealing with a setback in his grieving. We are kind of narrowing down living options, it's been a long 4 year process. And cooking babies...? You'll just have to listen to figure that one out. So, jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.
November 10, 2020
Walking Dead Universe: "Honey Shadow Puppets"
Welcome to the Dead show. Monday's back so it's time for some Walking Dead. Today's episode covers, Fear's "Honey" and World Beyond's "Shadow Puppets". Whitebeard said he'd give World Beyond one more chance to Wow him, we'll see if he changed his opinion of the show. Dwight and Sherry are together and have plans to stop Virginia. And the masked people, kinda reminds us of some people on TWD. Are you ready to talk ill of the dead? Let's go. Psst... opening outtakes too.
November 9, 2020
"Killing Eve", "Star Trek: Discovery Season 3" and "Country Ever After" Review Pt. 1
Happy Friday! Time for another Coke and Two Straws Review. We think we have some binge worthy TV shows for you this weekend. Elizabeth has been trying to get me to watch Killing Eve for a while and I finally did. T. Anthony has been talking about Discovery's 3rd season like every episode, so we finally get into that. It's not exactly bingeable(yes we create new words here) because CBS All Access releases single episodes on Thursdays, but still worth the mention. And lastly, Country Ever After, a more family friendly show. Go get your popcorn and coke with two straws and let's get into this.
November 6, 2020
"In Other News A Jeep Rolls Off A Cliff And Hikers Lose Their Lives"
The election continues, as well as anger. Also tragedy hits the outdoor community. There's a lot today. If you're ready, jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.
November 5, 2020
"Stay The Course"
Happy Humpday! Continuing on a path that no other is on, is frightful. Having goals, setting out on them can sometimes be lonely. In the quiet hour we ask ourselves... Do I go on? Or do I stop?
November 4, 2020
"Something Is Afoot At The Lazy K"
"It's not an adventure if everything goes according to plan"... they say. Michael from Overland Bound says "Adventure is necessary". Hmm... maybe not at freezing temperatures. We say... be prepared for anything or else! This weekend's adventure was surely adventurous as we had to make it through two nights of icy cold and failing portable heat. Yep! We'll tell you all about it. Jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.
November 3, 2020
Walking Dead Universe: "The Key" and "Madman Across The Water"
Welcome to the Monday Dead show! This week it was the John show on Fear. And Elton show on World Beyond. We watched it at 5am Saturday morning. Not because we are hard-core fans, but because it was too cold to sleep. And one of us couldn't stay awake. Are you ready to talk ill of the dead? Let's go...
November 2, 2020
"Mulan", "Love and Monsters" and "Train To Busan" Review.
Happy Friday! It is time for you to get that popcorn, a coke and two straws. We've got a mix bag of movies and fun this week for you. We'll travel from America to China then to Korea for some Zombies.
October 30, 2020
"Overseers, World View and Where To Now"
Today, we have a quick update on Whitebeard's eye, TK's opinion in her own words. And an update on a comment about "overseers" , made last week. Plus, how our world views shape our lives, including our political ideologies. Are you ready for this? Jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.
October 29, 2020
"A Box Of 64"
Happy Humpday! We're almost there... it's just around the bend. The weekend! And what will you do with the weekend? What will you do for fun? What will you do today? As adults we often find it difficult to play or to have "fun". Adulthood has a way of erasing our capacity to enjoy simple pleasures. Have you ever watched a child play with a box? Yet we buy them expensive toys and they grow bored with it. We grow up and do the same thing. Today, how about we do something different...
October 28, 2020
"Story Time Hike"
Right out the gate... Hike 47 of our 52hikechallenge was very different. And we loved it! We went across the bridge to Tenafly Nature Center, in Tenafly, NJ. It's a beautiful place and an easy 4 mile hike. We're a bit goofy today, maybe it was coffee with breakfast just before recording. I don't know but today's episode is about this weekend's hike and the unique twist the Tenafly center added for families on the trail. If you're ready, jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.
October 27, 2020
Walking Dead Universe: "Alaska" and "The Wrong End of a Telescope"
It's Monday and we got all kinds of dead on our brains. This weekend on YouTube TWD asked the question of who would win the fight between Daryl and Morgan. We'll give our answers, plus we have this week's episodes of Fear "Alaska" and World Beyond "The Wrong End of a Telescope" to discuss. And! It's a "Sherry And Dwight a Love Story " That's right, Sherry's back! Are you ready to talk ill of the dead? Let's go...
October 26, 2020
Blumhouse's "The Lie", "Evil Eye", and "Nocturne" plus! "Weekend At Bernie's"
It's Saturday! A great day to watch movies and this has been a great week of movie watching. And it all started with Bernie and a whole lot of laughs. Then off to some twist and turns in Blumhouse's playlist of thrillers. Go get your popcorn and coke with two straws kids and lets get into this.
October 24, 2020
"The idiot sons of Cuomo, 50 cents worth of Ice Cube and voting on abortion"
It's Thursday! While preparing for this episode, every social media and news outlet exploded with the events surrounding Ice Cube and 50 Cent. Then we were sent a video posted by Holy Post(video podcast), in it the host talks about the issue with voting for or against abortion. The host points to a video from Skye Jethani. We were asked about our opinion on it. So, in this extremely exhausting episode Whitebeard takes on some recent events. TK wasn't here today, perhaps next time she'll tell you in her own. But for now, jump in the backseat and take a ride with us. All aboard for crazy train.
October 22, 2020
"United We Stand"
Happy humpday! As you start your day mid week, here's a quick thought. The political climate seems to be dividing us as a nation. We've forgotten that "left-wing" and "right-wing" belong to the same eagle. I encourage you to remember...
October 21, 2020
"Hiking While..."
This episode swiftly turned from what we originally planned. A month ago Whitebeard had a problem with his eyes, so we finally got him to a doctor yesterday. With an eye pressure of 21 he's on the border for glaucoma. A number of test were taken and another issue was uncovered. Today we discuss that a bit as well as outdoor adventuring with health issues, like diabetes. Something we'll probably spend a whole episode on in the future. It would be nice to interview other people in the outdoor world with health issues. For now... jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.
October 20, 2020
"The Past Is Dead..."
No truer words have been spoken about Fear The Walking Dead. In this week's dead show we cover "Welcome to the club", Fear's 2nd episode of season 6 and "The Tyger and the Lamb" the 3rd episode of World Beyond. We have a feeling that season 6 is going to be awesome! At least one of us does. Elizabeth really likes World Beyond while T. Anthony continues to struggle liking the show. Hmm.... I'm the one typing today, I have no clue why I'm writing in 3rd person. Anyway, let's go talk ill of the dead.
October 19, 2020
"Becky" and "Black Box" Review
Happy Friday! You know what time is... time for a coke and two straws review. This week in the "spirit"(no pun intended) of October, we have two thrillers for you to check out this weekend. "Becky", more of a low budget slasher flick and Blumhouse's "Black Box" which is a Psychological thriller. And wow! We had fun with these. Go get your popcorn, coke with two straws and let's get into this.
October 16, 2020
"Becoming Unglued"
Happy Thursday! The week is almost over and the weekend just around the corner, with a few days for most of us, to have some peace and quiet time. Time to rest from the work week, office politics and chatter. We went on a weekend getaway last weekend as you know. While out, shopping and recording I (T. Anthony) kept seeing YouTube alerts about "World Mental health day". I thought, how fitting, because that's exactly the reason for leaving the city. We needed a place that was quiet, quiet enough to think. With homeschooling, job searching , researching for a new place to live and add to that the upcoming holidays. It's a recipe for mental and physical exhaustion and or depression. I have been there.. I've spent time becoming unglued as I call it. A whole year of my life put on hold, gone, to due severe panic attacks. It was not pretty and these days I work hard not to let that happen again. Today, I get into a bit of that time and some of what I do now to stay healthy. Get comfortable and let's chat a bit. 
October 15, 2020
"The Journey"
It's Wednesday. Happy humpday! the day that reminds us we're halfway in but we're also halfway done. Here's a little midweek wisdom to get your day started. Planning a hike or trip is a good thing, you pick a destination and what you'll do when you get there. But sometimes, going is just as good.
October 14, 2020
"The Catfish Fire Tower"
This weekend's adventure actually took place during our long awaited vacation. A weekend getaway. Our road trip to and vacation in Tennessee got canceled earlier this year and we were afraid this trip might be as well. Thank God it wasn't. In today's episode we share with you our trip to Shawnee Pennsylvania this pass weekend and our 46th hike of our 52 hike challenge. Plus a honk for Trump, recording episodes on the road and it all ended with  a bottle of 2014 late bottled vintage, Taylor Fladgate. Ready? Jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.
October 13, 2020
"Fear Beyond"
Arguably the greatest line of the entire episode. What am I talking about? The cold opening to this episode on the dead. That's right, the season 6 premiere of Fear The Walking Dead and the second episode of The World Beyond. Happy walking dead day! Okay, okay, it's not the actual day today but you get the point. What do we have for you this week? Red eyed Morgan and Wishy-washy Iris. Come on let's talk ill of the dead.
October 13, 2020
"Talking ill About The Dead"
It's been a long time coming! My wife tried to get me into this but sadly I didn't check it out until about a year after her death. What am I talking about? The Walking Dead! Elizabeth and I binged all 8 seasons one summer in preparing for the 9th. Admittedly, the show starts out slow and it is a drama, not to be confused with Z Nation which is not. So, after a long wait for season's 10 finale "A Certain Doom"... we were ecstatic to see what would happen to Beta, and to see World Beyond. In this episode we talk all things dead... and launch a dedicated show on The Walking Dead" universe. Every Monday! Are ready for some dead stuff 
October 10, 2020
"Enola Holmes" and "Vampires vs The Bronx" A Coke and Two Straws Review
Happy Friday!... or Saturday lol, we're a bit late. A week and a day, but as promised we're giving you two movies this week. In this episode we are reviewing "Enola Holmes" and "Vampires vs The Bronx". While both movies had things we both didn't like there were also a lot of great qualities in them, so come with us, get your popcorn and a coke and two straws and enjoy the show!  
October 10, 2020
"To The Hike Mobile!"
Hello! Today's episode is all about our recent weekend adventure and testing out our brand new, Nathan Sports packs. Lighter is definitely better. We missed the outdoors, the smell of the trees, the sounds of the animals and the wind blowing the leaves over the top of the trees. And! Oh my gosh, we added the outtakes of the cold opening.  Anyway, come join us and hopefully you'll also be inspired to get outdoors. Ready? Get in the backseat and take a ride with us.
October 6, 2020
"The Problem With Multiple Personalities"
Navigating the world and being ourselves is difficult. For the most part we don't know who we are or even why we act and think the way we do. Is it our upbringing, our life experiences and our choices, is it mental illness or something else? Today we discuss the results of a few popular Personality Test we're recently taken, The Enneagram and The Myers - Briggs 16 Personalities. The discoveries weren't too surprising it's just odd seeing it on paper and saying it out loud. We also learned the negative aspects of our personalities if left unchecked. No matter what these tests say about any of us it's never the finally answer, for us, we know that we are created new in Christ... "New creations" but it is a bit of fun and it is a tool. Come, jump in the back seat and take a ride with us and see how we interact with the world around.
September 29, 2020
"Cuties" A Coke And Two Straws Review
Whoa! After much debate we took the plunge. Happy Friday! This week against all that screamed from our insides, we watched "Cuties" or as they say in French,"Mignonnes". Not sure if all the people talking bad about this Netflix film has actually watched it. But we did, firstly, you have to read subtitles. See, no one told you. You can thank us later. We are both familiar with foreign cinema/films. So, we're used to "foreign" storytelling. It was uncomfortable but we stuck with it. We'll tell you the good and bad. Go get your popcorn, coke with two straws and let's get into this.
September 25, 2020
"Why We Chose Home Education" Pt. 2
Here it is part two of Tuesday's show. In this episode we continue our discussion on homeschooling, our choice and Elizabeth's trials with the public education. Metal detectors should always be a "give away", unfortunately far too often we ignore the red flags. Are you ready for part two? Jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.
September 24, 2020
"Why We Chose Home Education" Pt. 1
It is good to be back! This week we discuss the reasoning behind home education aka homeschooling for us. We spent most of August recording shows for September, giving us a chance to focus on the coming school year. So, this is the first episode back and it went a little long, so we decided to make it two parts. The second part will be out this coming Thursday. So, jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.
September 22, 2020
"Get Duked!" A Coke and two straws review.
Happy Friday. This week we swan drive into the Scottish comedy "Get Duked!". This was the weirdest 87 minutes of our lives... at least recently. Think of all the classic American 80's stoner movies, yep. Go get your popcorn, coke with two straws and let's get into this.
September 18, 2020
Family Affair Pt. 2 "Photography, Pilot Joan, Pandemic and Fatherhood"
Today, on Part two of "Family Affair" We talk to the oldest, the first born son. And we get an exclusive, the origin story of Pilot Joan, a song from his "I Walk Alone" album. We talk photography and more. Another great hour. You'll also get to hear in the very beginning, the confusion of planning a whole month of shows in advance, lol. As always, jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.
September 15, 2020
"Bill and Ted Face The Music" A Coke and Two Straws Review
Happy Friday! This week it's Bill and Ted! And a lot of fun. These two fools are still saying "Dude!". Before watching the latest movie, Elizabeth had to learn all about them, so we had a marathon. Would believe she even liked the "Bogus Journey"? Go grab some popcorn, a coke, two straws and let's get into this.
September 11, 2020
The Book Nook: "The Roommate" by Dervla Mc Tiernan
This time on Book Nook, Elizabeth takes a turn at hosting the show. She'll be discussing an Audio Book by Dervla McTiernan. It's a murder mystery. I love psychological dramas and murder mysteries. But it's not just a mystery, the backdrop is Ireland. So, get comfy and listen in...
September 8, 2020
The Special Edition: "Camping Is Too Expensive For Black People"
This month's Special is quite troubling and I must admit annoying. I came across this article a while back but saved it for today. Although we're coming to the close of the regular camping season. There are some that will be winter camping. This subject bugs me because it implies that, camping is too expensive for black people. I am tired of the constant division over ethnicity. So here we go, get your ticket for the crazy train it's leaving the station, now.
September 6, 2020
"Radioactive" A Coke And Two Straws Review
Happy Friday! Welcome to the first Coke and two straws review. About 10 years ago T. Anthony had a movie review blog with that title so we decided to keep the name. This week we're reviewing an Amazon original, "Radioactive". It's about the life of Nobel Prize winning physicist and chemist Marie Curie. And her husband, French physicist Pierre Curie. Together they discovered Radium. Which is used today to help fight cancer. So, go get some popcorn and let's get into this incredible love story of two geniuses.
September 4, 2020
Family Affair Pt. 1: "Motherhood, Middle Child, Back to School, Christianity and Essential Worker"
This week's episode is a live interview via phone call with Imani. A mother, Christian, wife, daughter, essential worker, home owner and much more. We discuss daily life and work amid this 2020 pandemic. How it all affects, if any, her faith, her personally and family life. It was get to have an uninterrupted hour to talk about life. Though we all know each other it's rare to talk like this. So grab a drink, jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.
September 1, 2020
"The Three Pigs": lessons we learn from children's books Pt. 2
In part two of Lessons we learn from children's books, we take on The Three Little Pigs. I have to to say we had more fun playing around with this story. Although there are some serious take aways from the Pigs mishaps with the Wolf. One thing for sure is, it's better to over prepared than under prepared. So, come on, jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.

The Book Nook:"The Tomorrow Girls" by Eva Gray and "Discrimination and Disparities" by Thomas Sowell
This week's episode we take it easy with a discussion about books. I challenged Elizabeth with this week's theme. She said a book club thing. Sounds good! Especially after the "heavy" Special Edition. It was for a little fun. So, we're talking about what we're currently reading. I think "The Book Nook" should be a monthly thing. Let us know what you think. Until then, jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.

The Special Edition: "Tik Tok, Uncle Joe And Conspiracy Theories"
This month's rant, is well... just that! A trip down the rabbit hole of news and crazy current events. I must admit I'm glad this is a once a month(thus far) thing. The news changes so quickly in 24-48 hours or at least, what's the hot topic. We began with Tik Tok and by the time of recording Joe Biden had become big news. Yep! We just let the "tape" roll. Folks I hope you enjoy it. But I couldn't do this type of show as a daily podcast. Put on your seatbelts and ride this crazy train.

Vampire Diaries and Biblical Truths: "Grafting and Sire Lines" Romans 11
This week we continue with and finish the Vampire Dairies and Romans connection. Last week we discussed that while watching the TV show on a Netflix binge, we discovered what we'd recently read in the book of Romans was displayed like an object lesson in front of us. Two things immediately popped out and the result were these two episodes. Also an update on our most recent hike. If we were driving back from a hike or roadtrip which is when most of these talks happen, you would be with us. So, jump in the backseat and take a ride with us. #whitebeardandtheKid

Vampire Diaries and Biblical Truths: "Slaves To Blood and Sin" Romans 7
This week we are off the rails! We have been bingeing Vampire Dairies while simultaneously reading through the book of Romans. Yes sir, you heard that right. The result is while watching the TV show, we were also able to see biblical truth play out in front of us. Crazy right? Hmm... not really. So, put on your judgment cap, jump in the backseat and take a ride with us. #whitebeardandTK

"Life Updates...?"
This week's episode is the ramblings of two people with nothing else to do. Our hike was postponed, I failed to come up with a theme for the show and when I asked the teenager... well, she had nothing either. So what you get is us discussing some new projects we're working on. And... some other things too. Hey, after our Special Edition, it was pretty cool taking a break from current events. Anyway, jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.

June 14th: Life After Loss
On June 14th 2016 after 19 years, we loss my wife, a mother and Matriarch. A partner, a friend, a prayer partner, lover, cheerleader, confidant and more.

Generation X and Z: thoughts on Politics and Culture
This week we take a break from our adventures on the road and trail. Turning the microphone on to conversations we have while hiking, driving and camping. Many times we have paused what we're watching and just talk. Making a one hour show or 2 hour movie far longer than the director intended. Come long for a ride and a glimpse into the backseat of our car.
