The Figurative Ambush of “Bill Madpuhgee”
Welcome to Episode #13 of Bad Relationships but first, a warning: this is a terrible episode and you should not listen to it. The interviewers are drunk and the interviewee (whom the hosts have ambushed while he was hanging out in a park bothering nobody) is rambling and can’t say one thing with any earnestness. Please enjoy this word salad. The post The Figurative Ambush of “Bill Madpuhgee” appeared first on Bad Relationships.

Back on the Board with Bad Relationships Episode #12!
Sorry for the long pause. We are back, choking out episodes. Boy, it is harder than it looks to make a very unprofessional-seeming podcast. This week we just read an email that a listener was kind enough to send us. Then we beg people to agree to call us and let us interview them. In reality, we will settle for an email. We will settle for anything! Thanks for listening. I feel like I have to have a tagline but I just don’t have one. Maybe we should have a tagline contest!

Bad Relationships #9 – “Leticia”
The intro music is by Jerry Hannan, thank you Jerry! In this episode, we talk to Leticia about being too nice. Wait, didn’t we already do this episode? You know, once a therapist person I went on a sort of a date with told me I was “pathologically nice.” That term still echoes in my head. Was it an insult? Backhanded compliment? Anyway, thanks to Leticia for being our guest and of course, that’s not her real name! If you have a bad relationship story to share, please email us at email@example.com Thank you! If you don’t hear from us right away, or ever, it’s because we have been buried in an avalanche of responses! Outro music is “Lamb44” by Cameron Ember performed by Tiny Little Blackouts: Cameron Ember, Anthony Koutsos, Michael Papenburg, Greg Merriman The post Bad Relationships #9 – “Leticia” appeared first on Bad Relationships.

Bad Relationships Podcast #3 – Princess 1 of 27
Please subscribe on iTunes! Tell your friends! Thank you. Okay! Whew, this week’s episode was a struggle. Plus I have been worrying about how to get more stories and how to crank out a new podcast every week. I know that I wait for my weekly new episodes of My Favorite Murder. Their consistency is admirable, especially during the lonely holidy seasons. This week, wait, I just edited the episode and I can’t even remember what’s in it. First of all, can I complain about stupid iTunes? I mean I can’t figure out how to get my podcast or my songs onto my iPhone any longer. It shouldn’t take an hour to troubleshoot. Otherwise, I would say it’s not an “improvement.” This week I bought a Zoom H4n digital recorder, and it sounds pretty good, but then there is some sort of artifact on the recording. There’s digital noise of some sort. Sorry about that. I’ll try to figure out how to improve upon the sound quality. Also, I was using Descript.com to edit, which is a pretty cool tool- it transcribes your audio, then allows you to cut the audio by cutting the text. I had some issues and drove the CEO to a near break down I think, and he implored me to either get on a video chat with him, or to please STOP using the service. Now THAT’S impressive customer service! Enough Shop Talk. What’s in This Week’s Episode: An introduction to the lovely co-host, Jessica J. Learn a little about her. A story about “Princess” and her amazing Bad Relationship. “Princess” is not her real name. Cam and Jessica discuss. We read a blog comment from listener Anne-Marie and discuss. Credits and Show Notes opening song written and performed by Jerry Hannan. Used by permission. jerryhannan.com. Other music in this episode is “Make Me Stop” by me, Cameron Ember, though Anthony Koutsos is on drums, and Joe Rosato Jr. produced that track and played most of the instruments, including upright bass. Available on iTunes. Artwork by Karen Simon, my friend who lives in Germany. We are seeking stories about your bad relationships, if you’d like to share them and if it isn’t traumatic for you to do so. Also, although we have focused on male-female, we would also love Queer stories, and of course any men who had a problematic relationship with a female. You can email us at badrelationpod @ gmail .com. If you’d like relationship advice, I’m sure we would be willing to take a stab at that as well. You can email or we can setup a time to skype! Of course, you should not be taking any advice from us. Ugh, the digital noise on this episode is so annoying! Sorry about that!

Bad Relationships Podcast Episode #2 – “You’re Too Nice”
I can’t remember how I posted the first episode, so I hope I don’t screw everything up! For this episode, recording happened thanks to Shaina Shealy and Eliza Smith from the Snap Judgment studios in Downtown Oakland, so that was exciting. I saw Glynn Washington’s office. The episode starts with a story I remembered about a girl I used to know. She was a really sweet girl who got mixed up with a guy who called himself “The Doctor.” Later, guest co-host Jessica and I talk to our anonymous guest, “Debbie,” who tells her incredible Bad Relationship story. Thanks for listening. If you are able, maybe consider subscribing to this podcast on iTunes! Art for Bad Relationships podcast is by the amazing Karen Simon, scanned into the computer all the way from Germany!

Bad Relationships Podcast #1 “Lucky”
Okay, in this episode, Jerry Hannan provided the theme music. I love it! Thanks Jerry. Jerry is a great singer/songwriter I met at an open mic night at Sausalito’s No Name Bar. Jerry announced that he was going to play a song that was in the movie “Into The Wild” called “Society.” That’s a great song too. Eddie Vedder covered it, so there. Next, Cameron Ember and Jessica J talk about Cameron’s bad date. It was pretty bad. We then talked about some really gross stuff, but I deleted it. You’re welcome. Then, mystery guest, “Trixie” tells her story. It begins in Berkeley in 1974? Trixie was 21 when she met this very handsome man at her Buddhist meeting. You know this isn’t going anywhere good. Then Cam and Jessica talk about the implications of the story. And so on. Produced by Cameron Ember and red wine consumption. Songs other than Jerry Hannan’s were written by Cameron Ember and can be found under her name and the names of her various bands: Tiny Little Blackouts, The Embers (not the surf-rock band, sorry), Ocean8, Sea Creature.
