The Darkest Hour

I figured I'll sit down on this nice Saturday and give an update with what I got going on. I go into detail on why I left my job and what my new job should be like. Wrapping up my sugar free diet and not drinking for a month. The adjustments I made to The Offensive Line show. Also a new group that takes care of our drama problem in the Orlando comedy scene.

I had a fun time sitting down talking to Edwin Pagan about his time in the IT Field working in Cyber Security. Edwin hits the gym and is pretty thick so people often view him as a big meat head. He's really smart when it comes to tech and we touched hon how people misjudge us or overlook our skills based on looks. So he even give his take on Edward Snowden being on the Joe Rogan podcast. Do you really have the right to say whatever you want on a private website? Learn our take on that and oh so more baby.

I had my cousin Rashad Baker to talk about video games with me. We touched on Zelda: Link's Awakening frame rate but how good of a game it is. Trying to finish games but being an adult slowing us down. The good o' days of the Sega Dreamcast and what went wrong with Sega all together. Rashad isn't a fan of a lot of Sony first party titles but did play them. We touched on the PS5 and the Hong Kong protest plus so much more in this episode.

Another solo podcast with me folks, I want to talk about outrage culture, family and friends. Don't think I stop there because I go into detail about the screw up I made working for a company. Why was I down and out in my life? Well the reasons you might find odd but then again you're not me. I heard something that reminded me of my brother Gabe at an open mic. What's the next step I'm taking when it comes to comedy and my software development career? Find out all that and more in this Blackman Hour folks.

I sit down and talk about all the crazy stuff going on in this country with my friend Ryan. People being to far left and right on the internet? Well why are we hearing so much from them when they're not the average everyday American. I talk about how I listen to conservative and liberal YouTubers. One of my lady conservative friends talk about not needing feminism so we had to go over that stuff. This is a wonderful action packed episode and it was a joy to chat with Ryan for over 2 hours.

Do I think things over in my head a lot and do people think I'm crazy? I dig into my childhood and how I got some of my friends. You'll learn about how I open up about my faults. Why? Because we all aren't perfect and I love myself including my faults.

On the show I had my friend Steven and Aston. Aston is very Liberal and is a Steven Conservative so they debate along party lines a lot of things. You'll get to hear about freedom of speech and the Green New Day on this episode. Plus opportunity and mobility in America. I did the research to help find the answers. Plus we talk about the US Healthcare system before we end the show.

Solo podcast again but I talk about what people are dealing with behind the scenes and how I helped. Learning from other people past mistakes and all the secrets I'm keeping for others. Then I ask the question why is it OK to write someone else off really fast and not your friend when they do something wrong? I'm going deep on this one folks.

It's been a long time but I got a chance to sit down with Drew Owens and talk tech again. I've let him know about updates I wanna make to my UI framework. Microsoft Hololens 2 cost $5,000 and who will pay that much? People aren't but factories have found out what to do with it. I went into details about a project I worked on and why I picked Unity3D over HTML5.

This comedy recap I'm giving you a deep drive into my hosting at Austin's Coffee. On top of that I end the show with something from 2009. I've been doing comedy for over 10 years easy but I always like to look back and show people how far I've come.

I had my friend Ryan, Amy and Caroline over for dinner then did a podcast after. We talked everyday life stuff and politics so it's a pretty mixed episode. Should a person in HR call them boobs, breast or titties? You'll be shocked with the girls answer...because you already know mines. When it comes to suicide, do men go the more violent rout? It's a pretty dialed back show that was pretty fun and I enjoyed myself.
