Maybe Daily Episode 22: Now that’s just bad storytelling

Welcome to Maybe Daily episode 22. In today’s episode we delve into a story I came across which feels oddly representative of the current youth. It has all the hallmarks of terrible storytelling.

The story does serve to make some parallels to real life and how we behave as a society. This is not a rant episode despite the ranty tone at times. I’m just saying words, if some words hurt you it feels like it’s a “you” problem.

Maybe Daily Episode 21: Faker than Victor Newman

Welcome to Maybe Daily episode 21. It’s pretty much a coming of age episode, the first legal one. At least in the US where our hero of the day Victor Newman is from. And yet he is fake, like so many narratives getting pushed upon us but let’s take things lightly. No reason not to chill. See nonsense? Point at it, laugh, then move on. Makes life so much easier. And no this isn’t the message of this episode so you still have to listen.

Maybe Daily Episode 20: A short Londoner rant

Welcome to Maybe Daily episode 20. Not quite publishing daily but still better than a half-year gap as the last episode came out last week. In this one, I’m ranting about a letter I received from the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, mostly because the only thing I trust from it is that we will pay more taxes.

I also mention trying to hold my swearing a bit to prepare a live radio appearance which happened later that evening. The show is called “Censorship Sucks Roundtable Radio Show” from February 9th, 2022. I don’t have the archive of the episode yet but will share it on the website when I get it.

That being said I hope you enjoy this episode and check out my first ever radio appearance.

Maybe Daily Episode 19: Likewise Brightstar, likewise

Welcome to Maybe Daily episode 19. Months passed so this one starts with a tiny life update before jumping in between Likewise’s cheeks. Likewise, formerly known as Brightstar is an insurance company providing phone insurance among other things. They serve as providers for Barclays, Vodafone and Natwest among others.

The story is crazy and drives the rant through the whole episode so I won’t spoil it here considering I went without a script. But don’t you always go without script JD? I hear you say. Well, yes but this one does that even harder. No notes, just nigh raw unfiltered ranting. Hope you’ll appreciate it and hope to see you soon.

Maybe Daily Episode 17: Git good or GTFO

Welcome to Maybe Daily episode 17. About a day after publishing the last episode, I had a few issues around new git repositories directly connected to some identity politics that snuck into software development all the way to the team that manages a software most developers use thus breaking tools that have existed for decades.

And yes I am wearing my 2018 Hacktoberfest bragging rights shirt here.

Maybe Daily Episode 12: So-called Justice Warriors

Welcome back to Maybe Daily episode 12. In today’s episode, we’re catching up. It’s been 58 days since I published the last MD. Originally, I planned to title it something like “58 days later” or “58 days of craziness” or some like that. Then while recording I slipped saying “so-called justice warriors” instead of “social justice warriors” and stuck to it throughout. Really, that’s what they are. Not building anything up, ready to tear everything down and for what? Obviously, I’m a very diverse guy so there will be quite a few different topics from the latest French Classique to JK Rowling’s latest adventures.

Maybe Daily Episode 11: Unsurprising mask rant

Welcome back to Maybe Daily episode 11. Unscripted mask rant, I don’t know that I’ll want to talk about masks more after this one. If you wonder where I sit when it comes to masks around COVID-19, this is the definitive episode. From now on, every time someone asks me about masks I’ll just send them this episode link. I’m just tired of these fruitless debates with fruit loops junkies that believe they detain the truth. Be healthy, binge junk food, whatever rolls your boat is yours to do. Doesn’t mean I have to agree or disagree with either. Yes, this summary doesn’t give many clues about the thoughts I have around COVID but the episode does. So go and listen/watch it. Come on, I wouldn’t want you to just guess the episode from a description and spout nonsense linked to my name. If you intend to do that, the least you can do is boost my downloads/views so that you know what you’re talking about. That being said, enjoy the episode and I’ll talk to you next time.
