Let’s hear what you gotta say about this specific topic. If a man gets a woman pregnant, should the decision to keep the child solely be hers, or should the man be able to say either yes or no. If the decision should only be hers and she chooses to keep it, then should the man be freed of all financial obligation to support the child?
We have a treat in store for all of our fans this week! Jessica Snyder joined us on the show and I have to say, this was my favorite episode to date.
Jessica has a background in child development, specifically autistic children. Among all of the various aspects of this we discussed, the study that says to have found that inducing labor can cause autism in children was most interesting to me. To read more about that, Click Here.

The episode starts off with a band that we saw live in Paris on our first night and then we jump right into our time in Amsterdam, following up with our time in Paris.
We did discuss a few current events. One was about the girl who was attacked in San Francisco recently by a bunch of men. The surveillance video of her getting kicked in the face is very graphic and hard to watch. If you want to see it, Click Here

We finally got the man simply known as Nima Fadavi, on the podcast! Nima is a great friend, and not only used to be my producer, but is one of the premiere hip-hop producers coming out of the Bay Area. He has done production for the likes of Collie Buddz, Andre Nickatina, Zion I, Fashawn, Chevy Woods, J Stalin, Philthy Rich, Messy Marv, Roach Gigz, Berner, Los Rakas, Tuki Carter, The Grouch, and many, many more.

I was asked earlier today by one of our loyal listeners, and then just now by a friend and loyal listener, if we skipped an episode of the podcast this week. The answer is ABSOLUTELY NOT! I freaked out and went to iTunes to check and Episode 9 is up and it’s been up since Monday morning. I think there might be a bug with the Podcasts app because I just launched the app I use which is called Downcast and was able to see the latest episode.
Moral of the story is if you think that we skipped an episode this week, THINK AGAIN!!! 🙂
Sometimes, an unexpected occurrence is a good thing. My brother Bobby decided to bless us with his presence on this week’s episode. We discussed several different topics and had a blast reminiscing on our childhood escapades.
The first thing we discussed this week was the brief switch I made from my iPhone to an HTC One. Like I said on the episode, I was having second thoughts on whether I should keep it or not, Jackie told me to make a list of pros and cons but I didn’t even need to make the list. The only pro was the bigger screen, while the cons were endless. Bottom line was that nothing will replace an iPhone and to all the non-iPhone users out there, I feel sorry for you.
We also spoke about the psychic, Sylvia Brown, who told Amanda Berry’s mother and father that Amanda was dead when we all now know that was not true. It turns out she’s been wrong before and her incorrect premonitions have altered the course of investigations. She has been silent since this new information has been revealed and has not made a statement. To learn more about this story Click Here
I found an excuse to bring up the topic of breast milk to Jackie once again. This time, the focus is breast milk jewelry and the increasing popularity of this new fad. To learn more about breast milk jewelry Click Here
We spoke briefly about the 3D printing technology and how with it, the ability to print real handguns has become an issue that congress is looking at. Below is an example of what one of these 3D printed guns looks like.
During the episode, Bobby kept referring to the penis that he was holding the entire time. He wanted us to post a picture of it so that the listeners would know exactly what it was that he was holding. The picture below is the penis ashtray that Jackie and I bought for him when we went to Hawaii on our honeymoon.
Episode 8 was packed with topics and we were covering a lot of ground in our new “up to 1 hour” format (thanks to all the great feedback we received from everyone!). We have several links that are directly related to the talking points we had in this episode listed below for you. Enjoy!
We started off the show talking about my experience walking past a homeless man on my way to get my car from the dealership and then driving past him 10 mins later in a brand new car. Jackie referred to a documentary called, Homeless In Paradise, where homeless people in Santa Monica, CA are the focus of the film. To get more info on that Click Here
I referred to a video someone posted of an interview with a homeless man who was just trying to live. This interview was very raw and at times hard. It’s a shame that this country is more focused on things happening outside of our borders, rather than helping our own people. To see the interview Click Here
Jackie and I, like the rest of the country, are also on the “kale and healthy craze” and we just bought a NUTRiBULLET Blender. This thing really is awesome and if you want to find more info about it Click Here
Jackie also mentioned that she has been baking “Kale Chips” as a healthy alternative to those who enjoy eating potato chips. These really are very tasty and if you’re interested in the recipe Click Here
We also discussed some items in the news one of which being the lady who tried to switch drinks at a Starbucks in San Jose, CA with tainted drinks with lethal amounts of rubbing alcohol in them. To read more about this crazy woman Click Here
And something I personally could not do, take a year off of the internet, we talked about the guy who did just that. To read more about his crazy idea Click Here
In another segment of “cRAP Lyrics” we highlighted Bay Area cRAPPER, Lil B. To read his top 10 worst lines Click Here
Thanks for reading and listening!
Jackie and I cannot come to an agreement on how long each of our episodes should be. Jackie believes that we should keep each episode right at the 1 hour mark. I believe we should go 1.5 hours or more. A few of our listeners that I’ve spoken to have said to go longer than 2 hours.
We can’t decide so we are asking the rest of you!
In Episode 7, we discussed a few topics that we want to link to so you guys can get all the info we were looking at. Early on in the episode Jackie made reference to the conspiracy theories whirling around regarding the Boston bombing. As crazy as most of these sound, some of them do spark a little skepticism because you just never know…
To read more about the conspiracy theories Click Here.
We also talked about the U.S. justice system and how ridiculous it is that the one Boston bomber who is still living will get an all-star defense team even though he is an admitted terrorist.

I spoke about the prank I played on my mom texting her that I had just purchased 2 grams for $40 and here is a screenshot of our conversation. LOL. Gotta love my mama…
This week we had the honor and privilege of having our friend Stoney on the show. He really broke down the concept of the Law of Attraction for us. He also provided a link for our listeners who want to learn more about this fascinating belief system.
Stoney also covered the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator personality test. Both Jackie and myself took the online version of this and are both ENFJ, and Stoney is an ENFP. Below are links to learn more about MBTI in addition to a link to take an online version of the test for yourself and see where you score.
Note: While the free online test isn’t the actual Myers-Briggs test (which costs $$$ and is between 100-200 questions), the MBTI is based off of the work of Carl Jung. Carl Jung was a Swiss psychotherapist and psychiatrist who founded analytical psychology.
As we stated in the podcast, Stoney is a plant enthusiast and Jackie made reference to a plant he posted on his Instagram that resembled a penis. Below is the picture of this plant which is called Nepenthes Ventricosa x Ephippiata (Bless You!).
This week, we started the episode off on a more serious note discussing the stabbing incident that happened at Lone Star College in Texas recently. This issue has reignited the discussion on gun control, knife control, and mental health. Read more about what happened in Texas: Click Here
Apparently, Justin Timberlake is the newest celebrity member of the Illuminati. According to the Church of Illumination, Justin’s latest hit single, Suit and Tie is littered with Satanic innuendos and the moaning of demons.
Staying on the theme of music, we discussed how today’s rap has turned into today’s CRAP based on how bad the lyrics have become. Leading that group of popular CRAPpers is the one and only, 2 Chainz who’s lyrics we outline in this episode. To check out his 10 worst lyrics thus far, Click Here
In my quest to build my very own fallout shelter, we discussed the threats from North Korea and the probability of them launching a nuclear attack on the United States of America. To read more about this, Click Here
And finally, in one of the more scarier topics we have covered on the podcast, we talked about the 10 things that most people don’t know about pregnancy. Make sure you don’t have a weak stomach because a few of these are BRUTAL! Much respect to all of the mommas out there. To see the list, Click Here
More than 1/3 of the world’s internet access is censored. The blind cannot lead the blind therefore let me make this announcement for those who may not yet know, The Overstand Podcast is NOT censored in any way, shape, or form. This doesn’t mean that our podcast is filled with filth, or topics that people will not want to hear. On the contrary, we talk about very serious topics, current events, our own personal stories and experiences, jokes, and light-hearted banter. Mixed in with this you might hear a few f-bombs, maybe some mature subject matter, but that does not define our podcast. What does define our podcast is a frame of mind that we do not now, nor have we EVER believed in censorship.
That said, we welcome you to join us, listen in and subscribe, and if sporadic foul language and a couple mature topics here and there is too much for you to handle, feel free to move along. 🙂
We began the show talking about an 86 -year old man who killed his wife by shooting her in the head because she begged him to after living with MS for decades and then discovering that she had to have a few of her toes amputated. To read more about this story Click Here.
Also discussed was the story about the NFL defensive end from Tampa Bay who tried to board a plane with a loaded .40 caliber handgun in his carryon bag. To read more about this story Click Here.
Below is a picture of the rapper Guerilla Black who I was talking about seeing at an airport, where he boarded a plane and paid for the entire row that he was sitting in.
I guess paying for the entire row is much better than what the guy in the pic below is doing…

Well, we couldn’t get through our very first podcast without at least 1 or 2 mistakes, so this post is where we make it known and promise that we will never let it happen again.

The podcast is actually called “Nerdonomy”, and it is hosted by our good friends Eric Bricmont and Brian Moriarty. Check them out here: The Nerdonomy Podcast
