sc 314 Finding Walter (Part Two)

March 29, 2013

sc episode 314This important episode of the Smellcast features the history of Walter Snicker-Snicker and Jose Luis Alberto Manuel Santos:  We find Jose in Daytona, Florida where his beloved Walter Snicker-Snicker is believed to be lost. As Jose begins his day and prepares to resume his long search, his mind drifts back to his early years with Walt when they were eking out a meager living with a hot dog cart in upstate New York.

As we listen in, we learn how one day, Jose became inspired to begin preparing their hot dogs in a new and different way, serving it in tortillas.  And so begins their decades long emergence from hot dogs to burritos, eventually abandoning their outdoor food cart to invest in a real sit-down restaurant.  Along the way, we learn exactly how Toppie and Aunt Tappie were integral to this pivotal time in their lives.

A Special Tip of Toppie’s Top Hat  to Mark Jungmann from the Scooter Diaries Podcast for performing the voice of Jose Santos on this episode!  You may also know Mark on the Twitters as the Laffingbuddha!

sc 163 “An Evening with My Father.”

April 16, 2011

Sometime back in very late 2009 Toppie started to record his father as he sat at the kitchen table while Toppie cooked dinner.  Over the course of a few months about 40 evenings of his father talking about news, family stories, and what was going on in his life at the time were recorded.  This is just one of those recordings… all captured the same evening of January 3, 2010.

Meet Toppie’s dad as he talks about the rewiring of his 1950’s MG; gay marriage and gay adoption; unusual car paint jobs, and a new bread machine he got for Toppie’s mother.  You can hear Toppie’s Mother in the background as she tries to explain a story about a dog, and a psychic test the whole family once participated in.

Of particular interest to Smellcast listeners is Toppie’s father’s speculation as to how to move a commemorative stone — the same stone that is featured in the Smellcast, episode 108.  You might want to check into the archives and look it up.  It’s a little story Toppie called “My Father’s Bro’mance.”

Of today’s episode, Toppie says he thinks the recording perfectly captures his father’s unique personality.

Episode 12 Gay Marriage

January 13, 2010

During a completely normal discussion of same sex marriage, Toppie is compelled to talk about his own legal former marriage to another man back in the mid-eighties.

How was this possible in New York state way back then?  How did a legal same-sex marriage slip in under the radar of the nation at-large?  The whole affair had thankfully been forgotten — until now!

It’s a sick, twisted and totally inappropriate tale.  Listen now before somebody pulls this horrifying episode off the webs — yes it’s THAT controversial!!
