PDX Sucks

Gone and probably best forgotten, Portland’s most intellectually-challenged podcast, Portland Sucks, returns for another round of idiocy...10 years and one pandemic later.

Tracks

An Endless Corporate Meeting, featuring Denzel
Gone are the days when you can rely on your government to get anything done, but can you honestly rely on Corporate America to save your heatstroked bacon? No. No you cannot.

A World of Hopelessness, featuring the Supreme Court
Positivity is difficult to find unless you're at the 2022 Portland Blues Festival. Think about that for a moment. We've reached a place where the effing BLUES are the most positive thing going on in the lives of the average Portlander. That's sort of sad, is it not?

A Fender-less eBike, featuring Russell Wilson and the White House Easter Bunnies
A post-Easter, rainy day podcast for my 16 Twitter friends, er, followers. Topics include: eBike regrets, a cardboard box full of dinner, the evils of candy and Russell Wilson, and buying miniaturized versions of almost anything.
35:44 04/18/2022
A Country Without Metal, featuring Vlad Putin
Plague, racism, and now war...and nary a single shred of purposeful art or music to be found. What's wrong with this place? 
22:24 03/02/2022
A World Without Children, featuring Costco
On the 10th Anniversary of becoming responsible, a trip to Costco causes some self-reflection. I'm kidding. I saw a billboard and it irked me, so I did some digging and laughed at how stupid people are.
34:04 02/17/2022
A Funeral for Journalism, featuring Howard Jones, er, Johnson
Frequent-flyer guest Betsy Richter joins to discuss the slow, painful decline of proper journalism, with a stop along the way to talk about the pros and cons of staying in Portland vs. moving to Mexico.
61:11 02/08/2022
A Pandemic Protested, featuring Eric Clapton
In which our hero (me) laments the utter lack of protest music in a time when we need it most - and when the only music that sells appears to be old music. But wait! There is one among the musical masses who dares stand up to oppression, whose voice will be heard whether it makes him unpopular or not! His name: Eric Clapton, guitarist with holes in his brain large enough to accommodate your fist.
38:14 01/24/2022
A Holiday Tree Torched, featuring Master Chief
Ah, the holidays. That ever-so-wonderful time of the year for burning conservative trees, insulting an entire country or two, enjoying the end of another entertaining sports season, and playing an unhealthy amount of video games.

A Spotify Wrapped, featuring Omicron
No Seasonal Greetings is complete without the choice data delivered unto thee from Spotify, the world's third best music streaming service - now Unwrapped for your giddy self-pleasure.

A Birthday Celebrated, featuring Wayne
Short and sweet, much like life, this episode features a 20ish minute deep dive into mental health, comfortable recliners, the "L" word, and the beauty that is a man on YouTube by the name of Wayne. 
24:49 10/20/2021
A Facebook Friend Forgotten, featuring Geoffrey
Whilst pondering my place in an increasingly politicized media world and lamenting an upcoming and unavoidable NFL football game, my sister reintroduces me to my long-forgotten past.
35:51 10/07/2021
An Open Podcast, featuring an Open Letter
An open letter from the owner of a professional sports team (or two) rubs the wrong way. 'nuff said.

An Argentine Labeled, featuring Blueberries
Consider for a moment the absurdity of defining someone by their age, their race, their gender, or where they’re from. Alternately, consider the ridiculousness of describing something by the most obvious trait you could possibly think of and then feeling proud of yourself for doing so. Welcome to modern media, and I’ve had about enough.The post An Argentine Labeled, featuring Blueberries appeared first on New PDX Sucks Podcast.
