In this episode of This Is Me Being Uncomfortable, I mumble about launching a podcast by accident; why I decided to return to writing Jeremiah’s story which you can follow along to on this page; and how human beings are connected by story to one another, globally. Also, I mean “unsuspecting,” not “unsuspected” to start the show. It was uncomfortable hearing that mistake. Full show notes are below.
Also, the podcast now has its own official page on my website. You can find an archive of podcast episodes by clicking that blue hyperlink you just scrolled past. Yes, if it’s blue, it’s a hyperlink. I recently updated the CSS on my blog so my post and page hyperlinks are blue because that makes total sense. Old school Internet.

About “This Is Me Being Uncomfortable”
“This Is Me Being Uncomfortable” is a podcast that’s not really a podcast in which I talk unscripted into my iPhone and then upload the audio to my website on the Internet to torture unsuspecting listeners who don’t know any better. “This Is Me Being Uncomfortable” is a way for me to get my thoughts out of my head, and not always in written form. I’m fully aware that I don’t have the prettiest voice. You try being 6’4” tall from southern Virginia. Perhaps I should add some soft music in the background, eh? If you’d like me to talk about a certain topic (writing, anxiety, meditation, life, death, why I highly recommend everyone sit on their front porch and drink beer and watch birds, or some other topic), contact me.
