Ep. 323: The 8th Anniversary Mailbag Spectacular!

I’d say it’s hard to believe it’s been 8 years since I started this show, but that’s a complete lie. I think about this show constantly, and anyone who’s ever produced content regularly for any extended length of time knows it lives in your head to whatever degree pretty much all the time. That photo…

Ep. 316: Jon Eks Solo – Death to Snark

As we roll into 2022 in earnest, the cultural mood seems to be pure shit. Beloved celebrities are dying, a huge chunk of our state turned into a damn tinderbox, grocery workers are on strike, and this godforsaken virus continues to hang around like a party guest that just won’t fucking leave even though we’ve…

Ep. 304: Jon Eks Solo and in a Creative Funk

This show has grinded to a halt. Literally, I’m having a hard time generating any momentum with potential guests, my writing process is laborious and tortured, and while I have plenty of TIME, the ideas simply ain’t coming. So, this week is an attempted exorcism. I turned on the mics before I could mentally set…

Ep. 300: Jon Eks Solo – Celebrating a (Quasi) Milestone

Since we’re sort of at a milestone, I thought it a good time to pause and reflect on where we are and where we’ve been. In truth, this is my 351st episode which doesn’t usually warrant any kind of notable extra action. But since we’re at 300 in terms of the ones I’ve numbered, let’s…

Ep. 289: Solo Episode – Mailbag, Conspiracies & Competition

It’s been a hot second since last we did a Mailbag episode, so I figured it was time for one. And I was wrong! I only got one question! Usually I get a nice deluge of them, but apparently you’re all busy living your lives, and I don’t begrudge you that. Hell, I’m vaccinated, the…

Ep. 242: Mailbag March 2020

The Mailbag returns to the podcast. I take your questions in a fun, lively, sort of unhinged half hour. Anytime I do a solo episode, I choose intentionally not to edit it. So, if you’ve ever been curious what it’s like inside my brain, here it is – circuitous thinking, lots of profanity, strange opinions,…

Ep. 230: Mailbag!

Time for a long overdue mailbag episode! I take your questions and answer them. I love nothing more than a good riff, and having a bunch of inane shit to play off of makes this a really fun, short listen. In this week’s mailbag, we tackle whether I’d rather be Anna or Elsa from Frozen,…

Ep. 222: Solo Ep – Mental Health Check-In

“But I’m telling you the truth… I mean it. I’m okay! Trust me.” – I’m Not Okay (I Promise) by My Chemical Romance. Here’s the thing. I actually am okay! But when I opened up about some of my mental health issues three months ago, many of you reached out to me to tell you how much that episode meant to you. So I figured it prudent to do a check-in with you. Once again…

Ep. 213: I’m Back, Baby!

Straight from the heart, stream-of-consciousness to my mouth, and into your ears, here’s the episode where I re-launch the podcast. I talk what led to the show going on hiatus, my struggles with depression, my philosophy on business, toss in a few outdated pop culture references, use a ton of profanity (because that’s how my…

Ep. 181: Solo – Customer Service Spectacular!

Since I’ve been up to my ass in moving hell, and considering the subject of this week’s episode, I think it appropriate to drop a solo episode on you all. When you move, you end up working with a whole slew of subcontractors and I suppose it’s to be expected that your experience with them…
