October begins next week and you know what that means? IT'S HALLOWEEN MONTH! I love Halloween. I'm not so much into the dressing up or the satanic or demonic aspect of the holiday. Though I am into lazy easy costumes, candy and the whole sweater weather thing. I'm just really a big fan of the fall.
Another part of Halloween that I love is the music. In fact, I've been listening to my Halloween playlist now for a couple weeks. Ever since I saw that first orange leaf and felt a slight chill in the air ... I've been listening to my playlist. So I've been ready for October and Halloween for quite a while, especially during this hot miserable summer.
In preparation for the holiday I thought I would share some of my favorite Halloween-themed songs. My list has over 100 songs, but I wanted to narrow that down to just my top 25 favorites. The ones that will always get me in the mood for Halloween. So enjoy!
Besides listening to my playlist, make sure you tune in this week for TWO themed Halloween podcasts. Next Friday I will be talking about the PARANORMAL ... and will be joined by my brother Ben, who is a paranormal investigator. And, then later in the month I will have an episode full of scary Halloween stories that you will not want to miss!
You can listen to those episodes here at www.listentomypodcast.org or on your favorite podcast app -- which is basically Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Podbean or Player FM!
NOM! NOM! NOM! NOM! NOM! What was that? Sorry my face was stuffed with pizza! I said ... THIS EPISODE IS ALL ABOUT PIZZA!!! Josher dedicates this episode to the once humble cheesy Italian pies that have now taken over the world! How did pizza go from a flatbread made on top of Persian battle gear to an canvas of bread open to any chef's interpretation? Well this episode hopes to fill in some of those gaps.
Not only does Josher drop some serious knowledge about pizza around the world and here in the United States, but he sits down with his friend Nick The Pizza Slut to talk about all things pizza! A native of New York City, Nick knows a thing or two about pizza. He's also a staunch believer that pineapple belongs on pizza which causes a lot of friction with friends ... except here on the podcast -- both Josher and Nick love pineapple on pizza.
Josher also quizzes Nick on pizza trivia, which, well, doesn't go over very well. But, all is well because when you are a Pizza Slut the details don't really matter. All that's matter is that you're never too far away from your next pizza.
SO, IF YOU LOVE PIZZA (and who doesn't?) ... all ya gotta do is PUSH PLAY so you can LISTEN TO MY PODCAST ALL ABOUT PIZZA!!!
DO YOU KNOW WHAT FUN IS? WELL IT'S FOUND AT LAGOON OF COURSE! What's a Lagoon? Well, it is a shallow body of water separated from a larger body of water by some barrier islands or a reef and while that's technically the real definition ... THIS EPISODE ... is all about LAGOON ... an amusement park located in Farmington, Utah that's been entertaining Utahns since 1886! Much, much cooler than just some lame body of water.
In this episode Josher gives a historical rundown of the park including it's cultural, historical and musical significance to Utah and then sits down with Andy Oliverson from The Park Hoppers: Unofficial Disneyland Podcast to talk about how to tackle the park with or without kids, what to ride and when ... and of course what to eat while inside (or outside) the park! There's even a mention about BeaverTails ... if that's your thing. This is really a fun and informative podcast!
Sooooo ... if you love Lagoon, amusement parks or just quirky history in general then this is the episode for you! All ya gotta do is PUSH PLAY so you can LISTEN TO MY PODCAST WHERE I REVIEW LAGOON!!!
I'm pulling an audible this week. I was half way through putting together an episode together about Greece, but I'm going to hold off on it in lieu of an episode about LAGOON! I want to interview my friend Gregg Paschall who's leaving for Greece later this month UPON his return instead of BEFORE he's leaving. Plus, I've been planning a Lagoon Review for the past couple of months and since I went on Labor Day ... I felt this would be a good time to review it.
I'll be joined by Andy Oliverson, host of the Park Hoppers, and we'll share tips on how to get the most of your day at the park, how to keep your kids entertained and -- of course -- where to find the best food in the park -- it's possible! I'll also be sharing news on upcoming rides, Frightmares and much, much more! It'll be fun!
That episode is coming THIS FRIDAY and can be heard on listentomypodcast.org, radioronin.com or your favorite podcast apps -- Apple, Spotify, Stitcher, etc.
