Eric Chase, D + The Fam

051918 PART II Eric D + Damaris!

Sorry for a few weeks away, graduations and community events.

The white girliest white girl thing ever, the royal wedding. Should that be capitalized!?

I still want to know WHY or WHAT starts your relationship fights. Which brings us to Ashley Madison resurrecting herself in D's marriage. 

Mayor Wade's first 'scandal.' Leave our friend Councilman Komives alone!

Laurel or Yanny is NOT harmless fun. 

How much fun are neighborhood Facebook pages.

051918 In Bed For 36 Hours

Before getting to my poop emoji-show of a midweek meltdown, quick thoughts on the new BSB (swoon) and (speculative, but accurate) Deadpool 2 spoilers.

NAMI walk, success!

A relationship.WHOA.

11 months, unemployed, but not broke.

Everything is good...but the carnage wreaking cloud of depression took over my life from about 3p Wed thru 7am Friday morning, most of that time spent in bed.

051418 Partly Profound Theories

Lots to unpack here.

Some 'business' first - will you share my site or consider having me come speak to your group? EricChaseSpeaks dot com.

Also, Entre Amigos, Latin dishes and cash bar this Friday @ Sofia Quintero! Sunday Toledo SOUP!

Personal things to share: What I do in my sleep, I'm the notification person I hate & what causes your fights?

Now for the title of episode stuff. Fleshing out my political nihilism; my I-don't-give-a-shit-its & a possible reckless thought after seeing Avengers again that supports my #Thanosisright sentiment.

051218 Meeting My Intellectual Envy

Don't worry about my birthday, but make every day Mother's Day. Also, patience, symbolism and details...all terrible weaknesses of mine, but there's strength in that. But really, this podcast is about a show that puts me in awe of the intellect of others...which is rare. I'm truly buried in humility.

050718 Balance In Downtown Toledo

I will correctly assume that in 2068 the restaurant brand that will dominate the globe will be Balance Pan-Asian Grille. And it started right here. When I saw him at a coffee shop, I just wanted to thank Prakash Karamchandani (PK) for adding another destination to my neighborhood in downtown Toledo. Instead we made a podcast episode. You've heard how some famous billionaires started in garages with an idea. Balance came from a couch and big box store credit cards. You enjoy the food, now enjoy the audio, and PK, CJ and I will see you downtown.

012018 A Father’s Mental Health Story

I met Bill Berry in March 2017 at the NAMI kickoff luncheon. They exist, but there are very few people who get me out of my seat, and energized in their corner so quickly. Bill, a friend now, did just that. He's our NAMI walk chair, and he's part of our group because of his daughter's struggle with her mental health. You've heard the story before; it began with a call from the school...

050518 Totally Solo Eric!

Where'd everybody go!? Work, graduations, insurancing people...BUT I have things to get to 1. your healthcare provider may not be what you need. They may actually be quite lousy 2. Stop idolizing REAL people...celebs, athletes, etc 3. Dad shoes are cool.

EDIT - Hit the last seconds of the podcast for a worrisome forgotten thought from the mental health monologue.

Also, it's probably the hardest thing in radio/podcasting to sit alone, talk by yourself, and be either interesting and /or entertaining. As always my highest admiration for the Rush and Cowherd soloists who do it everyday. I may come across as bombastic, aloof, dismissive and an all around dick, but to do a daily solo talk show (sports, news, etc) you have to be one angry human.

043018 Futurizing TARTA

I came across Q and Derek, two former Scott and UT players, and their idea from hanging around the Code City Facebook page. What their vision is will get you fired up to start using public transit in Toledo again. Do not doubt them.

042918 Every Avengers IW Spoilerpalooza

Eric, Justin Camuso and Vinny Chase break down, drill down, get down with everything that happened in the $250 million dollar Marvel movie monster...Avengers Infinity War. Who's really dead? Is Gamora actually alive? Who did Nick Fury send a page to!? And where was that person or thing in 2012 when the attack on NY happened?

042818 Eric, D + Philly

D 'hires' his wife to work with him. A lightning quick, spoiler-free Avengers review, half off speed gun tickets, Starbucks coming to downtown Toledo, D predicted Trump's triumph and Phillipe's Irish boyfriend is in town!
