There's No Going Back

When Han Solo chose to evade imperial pursuit by taking the Millennium Falcon into an asteroid field, C-3PO wasted no time in pronouncing the dire odds of their situation. The chances of survival inside the field were 3720 to 1. That’s good to know if you’re deciding between an asteroid shortcut and an uneventful cruise […]

However, this process has allowed me to explore new techniques and develop my skills that I can transfer for future podcast episodes and jobs in media. Prior to recording, I undertook some […]

I love the 10 Things That Scare Me podcast. It’s a good look into the thinking and vulnerabilities of others that helps me put better framework around my own. I even wrote my own list back in January. I have also been thinking about Game of Thrones since the season 8 premiere because, like so […]

The 78th Peabody Awards Board of Jurors announced its latest batch of winners on April 18, including nine Peabody 30 honorees in the Entertainment category. Fictional murderers had a big year in 2018, with Peabody Awards going to HBO’s darkly comedic hitman-turned-actor series “Barry,” in addition to wins for BBC America’s slinky, serial killer drama “Killing Eve” and FX’s Cold War spy thriller “The Americans.” That marks the second Peabody Award win for “The Americans,” which originally scored the honor in 2014, elevating the show to an exclusive echelon of drama series that have been honored by the organization more than once. AMC’s “Breaking Bad” accomplished the achievement most recently, for seasons in 2008 and 2013, respectively, with both “The Sopranos” and “The West Wing” earning back-to-back honors for 1999 and 2000. “Northern Exposure” also won twice, while “Homicide: Life on the Streets” is a three-time winner. Other winners in the Entertainment category include FX’s “Pose.” Set in 1980s New York City, Ryan Murphy’s latest delves into ball culture and the struggles of the LGBTQ community at a pivotal point in history. HBO’s “Random Acts of Flyness,” a sketch series from artist Terence Nance described as a “stream-of-consciousness examination of contemporary American life,” also won, as did NBC’s “The Good Place,” where a cast of devastatingly funny pseudo-philosophers make the best of their new life in the afterlife — and beyond. (This is also executive producer Michael Schur’s third series to win a Peabody Award, following  “Parks and Recreation” and the American adaptation of “The Office.”) Netflix performed well at the Peabody Awards, earning victories for “Hannah Gadsby: Nanette” — a stand-up set that turned comedy on its head and left people talking for months afterward; “Patriot Act With Hasan Minhaj,” a weekly talk show that delves deep on news that concerns the world at large, and “The End of F***ing World,” a dark British comedy and coming-of-age story. In Children’s programming, Cartoon Network’s “Steven Universe” won a Peabody Award for Rebecca Sugar’s animated series, which shows kids that empathy is perhaps the best superpower of all. Additionally, “Sesame Street” won an Institutional Award for its 50 years of educating and entertaining children around the world. A ceremony hosted by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ronan Farrow is scheduled for May 18 in New York City, celebrating all honorees, including Rita Moreno, recipient of this year’s Peabody Career Achievement Award. Peabody Awards winners for News/Radio & Podcast/Web/Public Service programming are scheduled for announcement on April 23. Full list of entertainment and children’s programming winners below. Entertainment “The Americans” (FX) “Barry” (HBO) “The End of the F***ing World” (Netflix) “The Good Place” (NBC) “Hannah Gadsby: Nanette” (Netflix) “Killing Eve” (BBC America) “Patriot Act With Hasan Minhaj” (Netflix) “Pose” (FX) “Random Acts of Flyness” (HBO) Children’s “Steven Universe” (Cartoon Network)

Once Upon Your Prime

Well it’s not exactly as “successful” as my blog title makes it sound. For years I’ve walked 11 miles every day for health/fitness reasons, so when I saw the local ad (Wanted: Individual to hang notepads in plastic bags around doorknobs, $15/hr) I realized I could get paid for the same exercise I already do […]

Plot Twist, Please!

I found myself in an interesting position recently. I was forced to resist an instinct that I had become reliant on for years: Self-editing. Now, don’t get me wrong, I think it’s important to reflect and to be as self-aware as necessary to dispense goodness out into the world, but there should be limits. Some […]
