“Shelter at Home! - 04” by Richard F. Yates & Mariah Yates

Howdy Talk Radio Fans!!! Mariah ( @mariahyates on and ) and I have finally gotten our rear-ends together and recorded a new show. In this episode (for something new) we talk about what we’re doing to kill time during LOCK DOWN! (What I SHOULD be doing in lock down is turning on my wife’s Hive account and handing her the computer…but NO, I’m typing this instead! Ha!!!) Anyway, we have fun making these shows. We aren’t REALLY talking to a bunch of people, but it makes us FEEL like we are, and that gives our lives meaning! What gives YOUR life meaning? Let us know in the comments, and we might read your response on our next program---if it’s funny and only cusses a little bit…

But I’m still happy with this stuff. I love talking about my favorite things---and I even enjoy talking about things I DON’T like, if they’re BAD enough.

So there you go. Hope you liked the show! We’ll probably make another episode in a few days, if we get bored enough… Wooo!!!

Later skaters!
