I’m going to be honest–there are few things I’m actually good at. Some people think I can curate and organize the shit out of readings and events. (I won’t deny that.) My wife will swear by my pasta sauce-making abilities. (Don’t believe the hype–hers is better.) My dogs will tell you that I play a good game of fetch (If only they could speak for themselves…).
But my greatest talent is bitching and moaning, a skill my mother reminded me of every time I complained about how few snacks we had in the pantry or how much I hated that Celine Dion song she played all the time. “All you do is bitch and moan,” she used to tell me, and now, with my latest project, I hope to make her proud.
“Bitching and Moaning with Brian McGuigan” is a new series of shortish (about 5-7 minutes) podcasts–or what I’m calling hate mail in podcast form–about everything that pisses me off. My first victim, of course, is Christmas, my least favorite holiday next to Valentine’s Day, which may be a future topic for “Bitching and Moaning….”
The pilot episode is available online for download and streaming right here through Ordinary Madness, an arts and entertainment podcast series hosted and produced by Steve Barker. Give it a listen and chime in with your thoughts on the podcast, Christmas and how damn cool my accent is in the comments.
And stay tuned for more “Bitching and Moaning with Brian McGuigan” because I have a whole lot more to bitch and moan about.
