Episode 8.0. In which my last remaining Uncle, Alan Newell McCarty comes to visit and tell stories. When I was a kid, we knew him as Alan, but at some point in his adult life, he decided to go by Newell. Alan is 67 and my father’s youngest brother. We lost the middle child some years back.

This is a long one; over three hours. We’re Irish so we’ll talk about anything. God, politics, the environment, the afterlife and of course, the Irish. But then we also spent a lot of time talking about his life. I was really going to edit it, but since so much of it is a retelling of his life, from childhood on, I decided not to…for posterity.

We were getting a little warm in the studio after awhile, so at some point I opened the window, so there’s a lot of road noise. Deal with it. Also, there might be one point where leave Alan talking and go freshen up my drink. Oh, and we might have been drinking. Just a wee bit.

So sit back and enjoy some Irish storytelling. Mostly Alan telling stories, and my mostly interrupting.

Three hours is a long time for me to sit quietly.

Episode 5.0. Sorry I was late getting this out. Got caught up with life. It happens. No Elise on this one. But Andy called in again and we were finally joined by Michael Kelly who had a very interesting story about Joe Pesci. You’ll forgive the edit, I didn’t have time to go back and record a better intro for him. He did call about an hour late, to be fair.

In which Angry Dave bitches about the old Uncles gas station in Goshen, the overall lack of effort by most people in Cape May County, the firing of Rueben Amaro and the annual Roar to the Shore in Wildwood. Just a short one to pass the time.

The audio is a little funky in the beginning. I was a little hot on the mic I think. Got some clipping, pops, clicks and other happy horseshit. I’ll do better next time.

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about what form the podcast will take; In fact, I’ve been thinking about it ever since the idea entered my brain.

Will it be a Marc Maron style thing where I rant for a bit, then interview people? Not likely.

Or will it be more like Bill Burr’s podcast where he basically just rants nonstop for an hour? Not sure I can do it.

I never imagined it to be an interview show, because as much as I like the few people who I call friends, I’m not sure I can just interview my friend Bob and ask him how painting houses is going. Who knows, maybe I can, but generally speaking it’s very different interviewing celebrities. People tune it to hear the celebrity.

I’m not sure if I can carry the podcast by myself, meaning I’m not sure I can just talk nonstop for 30-60 minutes and keep it interesting. I think I need a foil. A sidekick. Someone to challenge my thinking. Someone to yell at. Someone to make me laugh, or maybe more importantly, someone to laugh at my jokes.

I need an Ed McMahon.
