The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 121: Working From Home, Clayburn Cox & David Horsager

[display_podcast] I have a home office that I work out of. People often assume that it’s nice working from home and I must get SO MUCH WORK DONE, since I don’t commute to work. Now, when I first began this venture, I read a book about how to work from home. The book said that if you have a family, prepare yourself! Because your family will have a very hard time leaving you alone. I read this and thought, “Oh, no. Not my family. My family is considerate, thoughtful, and loving. They would never … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 120: “Human Being Origins”, Chris Rossetti & Ron Pearson

[display_podcast] I like thoughtful debates. But when I worked full-time in radio, we would get the strangest phone calls from listeners; and I rarely had an opportunity to have a thoughtful discussion. I remember a time when I was about 19 and I had just finished a book about etymology, which is the study of word origins. I learned that root word “ped” means “foot”. Therefore, this is where we get the English words “pedestrian”, “pedometer”, and “pedicure”. This may not seem very interesting t … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 119: Flies, Joby Saad & Michael French

[display_podcast] Summer’s over and while we don’t get many houseflies this time of year, the ones that do enter into our home seem quite lethargic.  Maybe it’s due to age.  Maybe it’s just their perspective on life.  I mean, think about it - on a typical day, a common indoor housefly will look at a person and think: “Okay… that human beast is about 600 times larger than me.  It can crush me into oblivion instantly.  I think I’ll land on his face.” They’re not very bright.  And they’re even mo … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 118: Giving Thanks with Sam Beman and Kristin Weber

[display_podcast] It’s good manners to be thankful, so we have this holiday once a year to remember to be thankful. But, why not have other “manner-related” holidays? Pleasegiving. We could have it the day before Thanksgiving, and if you don’t do Pleasegiving, you don’t get to eat Thanksgiving. Other potential holidays: OpenTheDoorForStrangersGiving, NoInteruptingConversationsGiving, ForkOnTheLeftOfThePlatesGiving, CoverYourNoseWhenYouSneezeGermsNonGiving, NoBelchingInElevatorsGiving… just a … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 117: Taking Medicine, Daniel Woodrow & Michael Jr.

[display_podcast] When my five-year-old gets the flu, he gets beyond miserable! He makes you want to cry, just from looking at him. He says he would do anything to feel better. Anything but take medicine, apparently. Because, at this point, any reasonable human being would take their medicine and enjoy the relief that God has blessed us with through modern medicine. But my son is simply not reasonable.“Wait! Does this medicine taste like the world’s finest candy?”“No. It’s going to tas … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 116: Dads Can’t Read, Nick Arnette & Peder Eide

[display_podcast] If I ever decide to read a book instead of watch TV, and my family sees me reading… they fall all over themselves, trying to put a stop to my reading. I have no idea why. They see a man reading and then, at that moment, they have to throw every single distraction humanly possible at me. Now, if a child is reading a book, it’s treated like a holy occasion. Everyone walks on tiptoe, they lower their voices. Someone may light a candle in reverence and form a choir. Someone will de … [Read more...]
