Hazards of the Job – Episode 047

In this episode, I read a piece of my writing that I wrote on July 11, 2009. It was first posted on the website of one of my podcasts (that no longer exists).

This is a story about what it is like to be a teacher, with a less-than-stellar immune system, while surrounded by children who spread germs and viruses.

I wrote this piece on July 11, 2009, on a website for one of my podcasts (that no longer exists). I wrote it while I was sick and fighting a hazard of the job that teachers have to put up with – constant exposure to germs and viruses!

This piece has been edited for typos and clarity.

Capitalism is the Problem – Episode 045

In this episode, I read a piece of my writing that I wrote a few days ago. The inspiration was the recent layoffs at Blizzard/Activision/King.

It turns out I had a whole lot to say about not only that situation but also about capitalism.

Capitalism is the Problem

I’ve noticed a pattern – and I’m not the first one to have seen it. The inspiration for this piece of writing, sadly, comes from the news of the massive layoffs at Blizzard/Activision/King.

Layoffs like these keep happening. Why? The problem is capitalism. Fortunately, there are solutions to this problem that can be implemented in the United States if enough people get together and push for change.

An Open Letter to an Anonymous “Pro-Life” Commenter – Episode 044

In this episode, I read a piece of my writing that I wrote on January 7, 2016, on a blog that no longer exists.

It was written in response to a random, anonymous, “pro-life” commenter who left and incredibly long and angry comment on a blog post I wrote about a bill that would prevent women from accessing abortion.

Someone Posted a Dick Pic – Episode 043

In this episode, I read a piece of my writing that I wrote in 2015, on a Tumblr blog that no longer exists. It is about a website called Twenty20 that I was participating in at the time. It is entirely possible that things have changed on that photography website between now and when I wrote this piece.

This piece of writing is not safe for work.
