Maybe Daily Episode 23: Making bodily autonomy great again!

Welcome to Maybe Daily episode 23. In today’s episode we will talk about bodily autonomy which people suddenly remembered. Interestingly enough, lots of folks just remembered what woman means. No more made-up prefixes like “cis”. I like that.

What I like less is any government getting involved with people’s business. The episode goes into more detail on that. I am happy to be one of the few who remained consistent over the past couple of years on people’s right to decide what can go inside or outside of their bodies.

I’m just saying clumps of words, if some words hurt you it feels like it’s a “you” problem.

You can still go and check out the archive of my first radio appearance on the “Censorship sucks roundtable radio” right here. Also, feel free to check out my previous episode on the subject which while technically a PDW episode it really was the original Maybe Daily. Hope you’ll enjoy it!

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.
