Whad’ya Know Testifyin’

October 10, 2019

Hi, the former Michael Feldman here, answering the question I get asked most “What ever happened to you?”

Not Much/ Not!–You?

For one thing I’ve discovered I can perfectly reproduce any Beatles solo (except Paul’s) when singing to my dog Bella.

And, no, she does not howl, but wags her little tail for more. Or maybe for a treat for sitting through it.

And for another (thing) I awoke one morning to find myself transformed into a podcaster, just like Gregor Samsa , should podcasters and cockroaches turn out to be in the same genus.

Podcasting!

Which I used to think was just playing to a middle-aged guy on a treadmill (in more than one sense) who will listen to pretty much anything to assuage the pain and blot out the cacophony of Millennial treadmills like tanks advancing.

Fact is I was wrong–turns out there are several middle-aged guys and 1 or 2 hot yoga ladies also needing my assuagence.

In fact, during our 3 so-far-year-run the Whad’ya Know Podcast, now with Lyle Anderson, raconte- & carilloneur ,

has been listened to over 600,000 times!

So, OK, probably by the same few inveterate or invertebrate Whad’ya Know obsessives (God Love ’em!).

Thanks to our medium-well demographic, I’m happy to say we have zoomed to the top of the eye charts!

Still, like yelling in the wilderness when there is no boy nor wolf, should we only rely on word of mouth we will be talking to ourselves, which is a little too much like podcasting for my taste.

That’s why we’re asking for your help–no, not donations–that’s for Patreon.com, for as little as $3/month–but by telling someone you know who you suspect may have been still sitting on their hands these past few years about the Whad’ya Know Podcast, and asking–nay, imploring them to tell their theirs, and and theirs theirs, until we, together, through the strength of our shared belief and sheer numbers will shine, like the Bard’s candle, “a good dead in a naughty world.”

Commander in Cheat–This Saturday, June 1 on Whad’ya Know Podcast

May 28, 2019

Donald Trump loves golf. He loves to play it, buy it, build it, and operate it.

He owns 14 courses around the world and runs another five, all of which he insists are the best on the planet.

He also claims he’s a 3 handicap, never loses, and has won an astonishing 18 club championships.*

How much of that is true?

None says acclaimed sportswriter Rick Reilly in Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump

Rick joins us Saturday, June 1, live on the Whad’ya Know Podcast  http://www.facebook.com/whadyaknow.net/

Tee time is 10 am Central, around midnight in Seoul–

April on Whad’ya Know Podcast

March 26, 2019

April is the Coolest Month on Whad’ya Know!

 

We’ll start the month on April 6 by learning to speak Dreyer’s English, despite it being utterly correct and spot on (on?)

clarity and style. You may want to stop talking altogether if Dreyer has anything to say about it.

Or maybe, thanks to your new usage,  you’ll get a raise.

 

Still have dreams about your Organic Chemistry final? It just so happens Matt Bowman is living his dream job teaching

organic down the street at UW , where his students not only get it–they kinda dig it.  Or whatever kids do these days.

Go organic with the most popular science teacher since Walter White on April 13.

 

And on April 27Matt Damon–in your dreams–but here at A House of A Guy’s Own we’ll be doing doughnuts with UW

Space Botanist Simon Gilroy (not pictured) the real Martian captured by the University of Wisconsin and made to create

gardens suitable for Mars use for future residents of the Red Planet–and not screw it up like Matt Did.

 

You can find the Facebook livecasts of Whad’ya Know, http://www.facebook.com/whadyaknow.net/ , at 10 am CDT, around

midnight in Seoul,

Whad’ya Know for The Year of the Pig

February 4, 2019

Hear Ye, Hear Ye:  The State of the Feldman

 

Ms Speaker, the rest of you.

Wasn’t 2018 a great year? And the President says they will keep getting greater for the foreseeable future, or 2 years, whichever comes first.

The Whad’ya Know beat went on, miss you Sonny, in 2018, as it did in 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, ellipse, ellipse, ellipse, and so on. So forth would be overdoing it.

2019 is no exception, except for it being the Year of the Pig making me a little uneasy as you might expect, or it could be whatever this is right here which bothers me at night.

Without further adieu- Whad’ya Know for the Year of the Pig–
