Episode 140 - The Internet, Theatre, Art, and Cincinatti w/ Ron Ervin

por Collin A. Bullock

What's Cincinatti famous for?  Collin doesn't know, he's never even fucking been there.  Not true, he maybe did stand up there once.  He doesn't remember.  Anyway, it's a town that has a famous Chili I guess.  Jerry Springer was the mayor.  Harambe the gorilla was murdered there, probably after getting information that could lead to the arrest of Hilary Clinton.  Also, Ron Ervin is from there!  He's an actor and comedian and internet guy and also bald dude!  He joined Collin to chat all about acting, the movie business, the theatre business, the Rocky Horror Picture show, and so much more!  Check out the podcast online at www.awkwardmomentspodcast.com, follow us on twitter at www.twitter.com/awkwardpodcast, and like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkwardmomentspod.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend!

por Collin A. Bullock

WHAT?  LADIES READ NERD BOOKS!  That's right, losers: girls are Ghostbuters, Superman has PMS, and Wonder Woman was just 2 hours of Chris Pine getting punched in the dick!  Megan Mackie is a published sciene fiction author, so she's been a woman inhabiting traditionally male "nerd" space for her whole damn life!  She sits down with Collin to talk all about her books, the future of Artificial Intelligence and automation, and how the nasty men on the internet are very much in the minority.  Check out the podcast online at www.awkwardmomentspodcast.com, follow us on twitter at www.twitter.com/awkwardpodcast, and like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkwardmomentspod.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend!

Episode 138 - Art, Performance, and the Internet w/ Actor Brooks Sullivan

por Collin A. Bullock

ACTING!  ACTING, MY DEAR BOY!  It's the process of pretending to be someone else, ostesiably for entertainment purposes.  Actually, sometimes you pretend to be yourself.  Anyway, Brooks Sullivan does that shit.  He's been in a lot of theatre and commercials and one time ALMOST voiced a puppy in a Disney Channel christma movie.  His experience in show business, the cruel mistress that it is, has taught him a lot about art and about lies and about the internet and about fast food and about Iowa, and so much more!  Plus, we learn that Collin can't say the word "hockey".  Check out the podcast online at www.awkwardmomentspodcast, check out Collin's website at www.collinbullock.com, follow us on Twitter at @awkwardpodcast, and like us on Facebook at @awkwardmomentspod.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.

Episode 137 - Porn Star Sovereign Syre

por Collin A. Bullock

Sex is fun!  Well, sometimes.  At least for one person.  Okay, I take it all back - sex is terrible.  Sovereign Syre has had a lot of sex.  She kind of good at it, so she decided to do it professionally.  Mostly girl on girl stuff, but she's had sex with some men on camera as well.  It's been her career for a number of years, and she's made some good money and even got nominated for some awards (Adult Video News 2014 Nominee for All Girl Performer of the year.  She lost to Shyla Jennings.  In researching that, I found out that the AVNs give an award for "best original song" and that there was a Breaking Bad porn parody).  Sovereign sat down with Collin in a weird corner in his basement apartment and they talked all about the business of fucking on camera, and everything that comes with it!  Follow us on twitter at www.twitter.com/awkwardpodcast, like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkwardmomentspod, and check out Collin's website at www.collinabullock.com.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friends!  

Episode 136 - Personal Trainer Anthony Bonazzo

por Collin A. Bullock

Collin Andrew Bullock, the host of this very podcast, is a fat piece of shit!  Many Americans, and people all over the world really, can relate.  It's so easy to sit on your stupid fat butt and just eat fucking chicken nuggets or whatever until you're too morbidly goddamn obese for anyone to ever love you and also you're ugly.  Anthony Bonazzo tries to sway people away from that terrible fate.  He's a personal trainer, which means he's an in shape dude who works out and eats right and gets paid to tell other people how to do the same thing - or at least how to get closer to his healthy life than the terrible life they currently live.  He sat down with Collin to talk all about healthy living, and dirty training!  Check out the podcast online at www.awkwardmomentspod.com, follow it on Twitter at www.twitter.com/awkwardpodcast, and like it on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkwardmomentspod.  Collin likes you and wants to be your friend.

Episode 134 - Recreational Drug User Brad Kofman

por Collin A. Bullock

Everyone has got some crazy stories, and more often than not those crazy stories involve drugs of some kind.  Weed, coke, shrooms, acid, molly, e, or just way too many damn beers - it gets you to a place where inhibitions are low and descisions are ofen poorly thought out.  Brad Kofman, yes that's the correct spelling, has endured a number of those kinds of stories.  Bad encounters with police, run ins with knife wielding maniacs, helping poor children in Nepal - Brad's been there, and he sat down with Collin to talk all about it!  Follow the podcast on Twitter @awkwardpodcast, like us on Facebook @awkwardmomentspod, and check out Collin's website www.collinabullock.com.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.

Episode 130 - Stalking Victim Adam Kroshus

por Collin A. Bullock

Adam Kroshus is the first guest of this podcast to ever bring a folder full of reference materials.  Which makes sense, he had ample reason to want to document every damn thing happening to him.  He was a male victime of stalking.  No, for real.  Not like "oh, man, my ex-girlfriend texts me weird shit sometimes".  No, for years a mentally unhinged woman made his life a living hell, making him fear for his life and his sanity.  Adam sat down with Collin to talk all about his expereinces with stalking, not being believed, feeling threatened, and so much more!  Check out the podcast website at www.awkwardmomentspod.com, check out Collin's website at www.collinabullock.com, follow the podcast on Twitter at @awkwardpodcast, and like us on Facebook at @awkwardmomentspod.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend!

Episode 129 - MMA Fighter Ramy Daoud

por Collin A. Bullock

Ramy Daoud is a guy who punches people in the head for a living.  Well, that's a simple way of stating it.  He's an athlete, and a pretty damn elite one - an MMA fighter with a great record and one hell of a left hook.  Maybe his left hook isn't great, but I liked the way that sounded.  Ramy grew up Muslim in the suburbs of Chicago, and he taught himself how to fight - and how to win.  He sat down with Collin in the dojo (actually a spare room in Collin's apartment, but it does have microphones) to talk all about fighting, faith, food, fucking, and so much more!  Check out the website at www.awkwardmomentspod.com, find Collin's stand up dates at www.collinabullock.com, follow us on Twitter @awkwardpodcast, and like us on Facebook @awkwardmomentspod.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.

Episode 127 - Rape Victim Advocate Dama Alvarado

por Collin A. Bullock

TRIGGER WARNING:  This episode contains copious discussion of sexual assault and trauma.  On January 20th of 2017, America inagurated an admitted sex criminal as president of the United States of America.  On January 21st of 2017, people marched on the streets in the largest protest in the history of the country, all to show their disgust for this man.  One of those women was Dama Alvarado, who has spent large portions of her life generously donating her time to helping women in dire circumstances.  She was a rape victim advocate, a medical rape victim advocate to be specfic.  After women had been sexually assaulted, she visited them in the hospital so they had at least one human being in the world soley devoted to giving a shit about their experience right in that moment.  She sits down with Collin to talk all about her experiences with sexual assault, trauma, politics, and so much more!  Check out the website at www.awkwardmomentspod.com, follow us on Twitter at @awkwardpodcast, and Facebook at @awkwardmomentspod.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend!

Episode 126 - Mob Soldier Anthony Buoniconti

por Collin A. Bullock

Recently, Collin decided that he wanted to interview an MMA trainer.  It's a cool sport, people just beat the shit out of each other in a literal cage, Collin thought it would be an interesting interview.  So Collin e-mailed a local MMA gym.  The man who responded, and agreed to do the interview, came over and started talking.  And what came out of his mouth was a crazy odyssey of sex, crime, violence, fat guys in diapers, Jesus Christ and so much more!  This is one of the most unpredictable interviews Collin has ever done, with a man who has done a lot of things he regrets, and a number of things he doesn't, and has no problem talking all about it!  Check out the website at www.awkwardmomentspod.com, follow us on twitter - @awkwardpodcast, and like us on Facebook - @awkwardmomentspod.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.  

Episode 125 - HIV Positive Man Evon Russell

por Collin A. Bullock

Evon Russell is a gay, black man from Pittsburgh.  That put him at a significantly higher risk for HIV, stastically speaking.  And, wouldn't you know it, Evon had the unfortunate luck to contract the human immunodeficiency virus.  As you probably know, HIV is a virus that attacks your white blood cells and just generally fucks up your whole immune system and if left unchecked can eventually lead to full blown AIDS, which is even nastier.  Evon has been living with this diagnosis, and the implications there-in, for many years now and he sat down with Collin to talk all about health, sex, love, travel, race, and so much more!  Check out the website at www.awkwardmomentspod.com, like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkwardmomentspod, and follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/awkwardpodcast.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.

Episode 124 - Cult Member Jordan Beninah Holmes

por Collin A. Bullock

In the bible, which is presumably a book you've heard of, Beninah was one of King David's mighty men.  Basically, a tough bad-ass kind of dude.  At one point he straight ups just kills a lion (Samuel 23:20).  A leader of a small cult in central Illinois prophesied that a child would be born, a great leader of men, and that child would be named Jordan Beninah.  A couple decades later, that child sat down with Collin to talk about being born into a cult, grappling with faith, suicide, death, murder, jerking off, and so much more!  Check us out on twitter at @awkwardpodcast, find us on Facebook at @awkwardmomentspod, and check out Collin's website at www.collinabullock.com.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.

Episode 123 - Professional Gambler Nick Woolworth

por Collin A. Bullock

How much money do you have on your right now?  Ten bucks?  A hundred bucks?  A thousand bucks?  Even more?  Nick Woolworth is a man who regularly had hundreds of thousands of dollars to his name, in cash and chips and other forms of currency.  And he made it all by games of skill, with a strong component of luck.  He was a professional gambler, and he made millions and lost even more in places as diverse as Lad Vegas and rural Minnesota.  He sits down with Collin to talk about poker, black jack, luxury, sin, odds, love, loss, and so much more!  It's a good one!  Check out Collin's website at www.collinabullock.com,  follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/awkwardpodcast, and like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkwardmomentspod.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.

Episode 122 - Eastern European Immigrant Simona Signoret

por Collin A. Bullock

Simona Signoret is from Latvia, a small country between Lithuania and Estonia on the Baltic sea.  It is not Latveria, the fictional country Doctor Doom is from.  Collin makes that mistake sometimes.  When Simona left her home country, it was still under the auspices of the Soviet Union.  Soon after, the Soviet Union fell apart.  Simona sits down with Collin to talk about her memories of that time, her parent's impression of being Jews in the USSR, boobs, and so much more!  Check out our website at www.awkwardmomentspod.com, follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/awkwardpodcast, and like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkwardmomentspod.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.

Episode 121 - Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery Patient Courtney Peterson

por Collin A. Bullock

To quote Louis CK, "the meal isn't over when I'm full.  The meal is over when I hate myself."  To Courtney Peterson, that struggle with self control, and compulsive eating is a part of everyday life.  She used to weight damn near 300 pounds, until she decided to get a dangerous and invasive surgery to literally force herself to eat less.  She sits down with Collin, who has his own damn problems with food, to talk all about self-control, self-hate, self-aggrandizement, and so much more about ourselves!  Check the podcast out at www.awkwardmomentspod.com, follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/awkwardpodcast, like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkardpodcast, and just generally enjoy people out in the world!  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend!

Episode 120 - Nuclear Plane Mechanic Andrew Pauli

por Collin A. Bullock

Andrew Pauli is not a normal guy, for reasons apparent at the outset of the interview and for other reasons that slowly begin to be revealed as the interview progresses.  He was in the military sure, and he worked on planes with nuclear capabilities.  Like, he's probably been in the same room as a straight up nuclear bomb.  He has feelings about his time in the military, and about all kinds of engines (including, perhaps most importantly, his own goddamn mind), and he sits down with Collin to dig into everything he's been through and where his head and his body are at nowadays.  Check us out on Twitter at @awkwardpodcast or on Facebook at awkwardmomentspod.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.
