True Crime Genre

The Podcast Explosion

The true crime genre for podcasts has hit the internet like a storm. This new wave of gripping productions seems to be serving a morbid curiosity that is encoded deep in the DNA of human beings.   

Society has always had an interest in the macabre. Whether it is Dateline, 20/20, Cops, or even Dr. Phil in certain moments, true crime has always had major traction on television and through other media like books and films.   

There is an entire television network dedicated to the genre, so this recent explosion in podcast shows makes total sense. The long-form audio format of a podcast allows the listener to not only get lost in the depth of the story but to also become privy to real audio clips from 911 calls and actual confessions recorded by the police.

Podcasts To Listen To: Scandal...Stan Lee's World

Stan Lee

Pop Culture Icon

I can not think of any other artist who has made the kind of pervasive and persistent impression on Pop Culture as comic book genius Stan Lee has.

The characters he created are enmeshed in the fabrics of our lives through varying media and an endless stream of branded product. From blockbuster commercial movie success to the Spider-Man pajamas my son adorns at bedtime, his mark has been left indelibly on our society and we are the better for it.

With this kind of generational, lightning in a bottle success comes a massive empire of riches and assets. Stan Lee had amassed the kind of wealth that most common working folk cannot even begin to wrap their heads around.

Having that kind of lucrative empire attached to the iconic nature of Stan’s illustrious career tends to bring people out of the woodwork day and night angling to secure some sort of benefit from Stan’s vast comic kingdom.

9 Things I Would Tell My 18-Year-Old Self

Inspiration Through Gratitude

Reflecting Back

In life, you have to suffer through challenges and failures but hopefully grow as a result from enduring them. There is plenty of advice being offered all around us when growing up, but when we are young, we are predisposed to often tuning it out.

While I have compiled here 9 nuggets of advice to relay to my 18-year-old self, this perspective can most likely only be learned over time and through actual life experience.

Putting aside the current limitations of time travel, if I was somehow able to bestow all of these suggestions to my 18-year-old self, I am not sure it would have made a bit of difference in my life. Words and suggestions can help guide and cajole, but life experience is indeed the ultimate teacher.

The #1 Keto Diet Mistake You Need To Avoid

Keto Diet

What Is Keto

The keto diet, short for ketogenic, is a dietary strategy that focuses on restricting carbs in favor of consuming high amounts of healthy fats and eating moderate amounts of protein.

There are varying methods and sub-strategies under the low-carb umbrella like modified keto, the carnivore diet, low-fat keto, and high-protein, although keto purist might argue against some of these as being methods that do not produce a constant state of ketosis.

Ketosis

Our bodies can reach a state of nutritional ketosis as a result of extended, restricted carbohydrate intake. We begin burning fat for fuel, instead of sugar from carbs, and begin producing ketones which can be a powerful fuel source for our bodies and brains.

When I am in ketosis I feel alert and clear-headed with a steady and sustainable source of energy. I initially came to the ketogenic lifestyle to shed a few extra pounds but I have stuck around with this strategy of eating to keep reaping the mental clarity and sustained energy benefits.

The 7 Best Episodes Of The Ex-Man Podcast With Doc Coyle

The Ex-Man Podcast

Riding The Wave

I have always been fascinated by underground music. I have distinct memories of being around 6 years old when MTV first debuted back in 1981. Back then, they featured lots of British bands in their rotation. Videos from Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Madness had me riveted to the TV and my brain permanently wired to seek out alternative pathways for exploring new music.

In the early 2000’s there was another era of underground music that I had the fortune of becoming engrossed in as well. This movement was the New Wave of American Heavy Metal and it made significant noise in the industry through a variety of bands fusing various influences like thrash and hardcore punk.

Bands within this scene reached commercial heights that will most likely never be met again by such a large number of artists at the same time under the realm of aggressive rock ‘n roll. Metalcore, as the scene and style of music, got tagged, exploded.

Bands like Lamb of God and Shadows Fall toured worldwide and had coveted slots on the iconic national touring property Ozzfest. MTV revived Headbangers Ball to get in on the resurgence of metal and many bands from this time sold well into the hundreds of thousands of album sales.

Doc Coyle

God Forbid from New Jersey was one of those bands that were firmly entrenched with street credibility, commercial sales, major tours, and the chops on stage to hang with the scenes preeminent acts. Doc Coyle was a co-founder and guitarist from God Forbid and was globally recognized as one of the truly good dudes from that era.

We Tried Mushroom Coffee By Four Sigmatic - Check Out Our Video Review

Coffee

Mushroom Coffee

Coffee fortified with mushroom extract has become a consistent favorite in my coffee routine. These instant coffee packets are easy to brew up and I love the positive wellness benefits associated with consuming mushrooms, which can include:

  • Better regulation of blood sugar levels

  • Immunity support

  • Prevention of adrenal fatigue

Howard Stern Show No Longer Compels Me To Listen

Howard Stern

The End For Me Has Arrived

I am a lifelong diehard Howard Stern fanatic and I am no longer compelled to tune into his show. Howard has earned my eternal gratitude for a 20+ year run of unparalleled entertainment, but that run has definitively ended for me.

Some changes in my consumption of entertainment coupled with some disappointing moments in the evolution of Howard's show have both lent to my current disinterest.

I am formally declaring the end of my listenership while also extending a heartfelt thanks to Howard and his staff. They colored my mornings in a manner that can never be replicated by any other personality or entertainment crew again.

The 9 Best Fantasy Football Podcasts To Dominate Your League With

Fantasy Football

NFL Fantasy Goes Mainstream

Football is king and that is a beautiful thing. While my interest in other professional sports has seemed to wane a bit as I have grown older and started a family, my passion for NFL football has increased tenfold and borderlines on an obsession.

The way that pro football is covered by major sports media these days, highlighting fantasy stats and catering to fantasy players, is a clear indication that I am not alone in this dual purpose interest in the NFL.

9 Ways Meditation Has Changed My Life

The Power Of Meditation

Inroads To The Mainstream

Meditation, or the general practice of mindfulness, seems to be slowly making inroads into the collective consciousness of the mainstream.

Just about anywhere you turn these days you seem to run into an article, podcast discussion, or some sort of social site mention about the benefits of meditation.

I understand the desire of those who practice meditation to want to share with the world the benefits they have been experiencing, but in the past, I have found myself a little hesitant to bring up the subject amongst my peers.

Something about voluntarily sharing that I meditate felt like bragging and maybe even coming off as slightly pompous, so I have kept my practice close to my heart until recently.

I can no longer hold back, though, from sharing the many benefits that meditation has brought into my life.
