Some people have a face for radio-I have a voice for blogging

Greg and Rob from The Paunch Stevenson Show invited me to be their guest. I've never done that type of thing before so this will be a first for me. Their podcast is best described as a mix of topics from current pop culture to 80s/90s era nostalgia. It's not unusual for them to talk about Steven Segal's action movie career one minute and then Doctor Phil the next, all the while doing impressions of Louie Anderson. We're going to record tomorrow night and over the past few days I've been kinda nervous about the whole thing. Rob has assured me that the discussion we'll have will play to my strengths, which is cool but holy crap what if the conversation veers off a bit into areas I don't know about (which is pretty much everything except old newspaper ads of toy robots).

To soothe my anxiety I asked for advice from the only people in the world that I trust-my wife and The Moon Masters. My wife told me it's a good thing if I get the chance to talk outside of my established comfort zone about subjects that I may not be an expert in. But then she kind of just rolled over and went to bed without telling me why. The Moon Masters told me to just be myself and don't try to be funny or it'll come out sounding forced. So best case scenario would be I mesh well with Rob and Greg and we may have interesting discussions about video games or other such topics and worse case scenario would be I start doing Voltron episode reviews in a Louie Anderson voice.

Don't worry, you'll be fine!

That last sentence was hilarious. I'm now picturing Louie drolly reviewing Voltron while asking two families "name five things Voltron is known for."

Rob does a funny Louie Anderson and told me he has some He-man DVDs. Maybe we can get him to do He-Man episode reviews by Louie Anderson as a regular feature of the Paunch Stevenson Show.

Interesting idea. By the way, the episode is halfway done. I'll finish it as soon as I can...maybe tomorrow. It's turning out great. Thanks again for talking with us!
