Episode 124 - Cult Member Jordan Beninah Holmes

• November 2nd, 2016

In the bible, which is presumably a book you've heard of, Beninah was one of King David's mighty men.  Basically, a tough bad-ass kind of dude.  At one point he straight ups just kills a lion (Samuel 23:20).  A leader of a small cult in central Illinois prophesied that a child would be born, a great leader of men, and that child would be named Jordan Beninah.  A couple decades later, that child sat down with Collin to talk about being born into a cult, grappling with faith, suicide, death, murder, jerking off, and so much more!  Check us out on twitter at @awkwardpodcast, find us on Facebook at @awkwardmomentspod, and check out Collin's website at www.collinabullock.com.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.

How much money do you have on your right now?  Ten bucks?  A hundred bucks?  A thousand bucks?  Even more?  Nick Woolworth is a man who regularly had hundreds of thousands of dollars to his name, in cash and chips and other forms of currency.  And he made it all by games of skill, with a strong component of luck.  He was a professional gambler, and he made millions and lost even more in places as diverse as Lad Vegas and rural Minnesota.  He sits down with Collin to talk about poker, black jack, luxury, sin, odds, love, loss, and so much more!  It's a good one!  Check out Collin's website at www.collinabullock.com,  follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/awkwardpodcast, and like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkwardmomentspod.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.

Episode 122 - Eastern European Immigrant Simona Signoret

• August 31st, 2016

Simona Signoret is from Latvia, a small country between Lithuania and Estonia on the Baltic sea.  It is not Latveria, the fictional country Doctor Doom is from.  Collin makes that mistake sometimes.  When Simona left her home country, it was still under the auspices of the Soviet Union.  Soon after, the Soviet Union fell apart.  Simona sits down with Collin to talk about her memories of that time, her parent's impression of being Jews in the USSR, boobs, and so much more!  Check out our website at www.awkwardmomentspod.com, follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/awkwardpodcast, and like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkwardmomentspod.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.

Episode 121 - Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery Patient Courtney Peterson

• July 20th, 2016

To quote Louis CK, "the meal isn't over when I'm full.  The meal is over when I hate myself."  To Courtney Peterson, that struggle with self control, and compulsive eating is a part of everyday life.  She used to weight damn near 300 pounds, until she decided to get a dangerous and invasive surgery to literally force herself to eat less.  She sits down with Collin, who has his own damn problems with food, to talk all about self-control, self-hate, self-aggrandizement, and so much more about ourselves!  Check the podcast out at www.awkwardmomentspod.com, follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/awkwardpodcast, like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkardpodcast, and just generally enjoy people out in the world!  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend!

Episode 120 - Nuclear Plane Mechanic Andrew Pauli

• May 18th, 2016

Andrew Pauli is not a normal guy, for reasons apparent at the outset of the interview and for other reasons that slowly begin to be revealed as the interview progresses.  He was in the military sure, and he worked on planes with nuclear capabilities.  Like, he's probably been in the same room as a straight up nuclear bomb.  He has feelings about his time in the military, and about all kinds of engines (including, perhaps most importantly, his own goddamn mind), and he sits down with Collin to dig into everything he's been through and where his head and his body are at nowadays.  Check us out on Twitter at @awkwardpodcast or on Facebook at awkwardmomentspod.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.

Episode 119 - Bird Aficionado Chris Churchill

• April 27th, 2016

Birdies go chirp, chirp, chirp!  They're some of the all-around loveliest creatures around (most of the time, sort of, arguably not) and everyone sees tons of them everyday.  But how much do you really know about birds?  If you're Chris Churchill, it's quite a bit.  He's a bit of an expert on birds, which is good because they're one of the only things that has helped him get cope with his often times debilitating mental health issues.  He sits down with Collin and they go on a journey through depression, panic attacks, self-harm, and lots of birds.  Lots and lots of birds!  Check out Awkward Moments LIVE! at the Chicago Laugh Factory on Sunday, May 29th!  Follow the podcast on Twitter at www.twitter.com/awkwardpodcast, like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkwardmomentspod, and visit Collin's website at www.collinabullock.com.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.

Episode 118 - Birth Mother Katie Oliver

• April 13th, 2016

When you get pregnant, you have three options:  You keep it, you abort it, or you give it up.  Katie Oliver got pregnant at 21, way before she was ready to have a family, and so all three options scared her.  Coming from a very catholic background, she was confused and needed help.  What she eventually decided to do about her pregnancy is the basis for a chat she had with Collin, where we talk about all the ways Katie is and isn't a parent to a wonderful 13 year old boy.  Also, Collin talks about how this episode completes a trilogy of episodes about parents, more or less.  Awkward Moments will be LIVE at The Chicago Laugh Factory on May 29th, so gets your tickets now through the Laugh Factory Chicago Website!  Check us out on twitter at www.twitter.com/awkwardpodcast, like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkwardmomentspod, and check out Collin's website at www.collinabullock.com.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend!

Episode 117 - Pro Choice Advocates Amanda Cohen and Jo Beth Harrison

• April 6th, 2016

There are certain issues that inspire a real passion in people, for better or worse.  If reproductive rights isn't right at the top of that list, it's at least damn close.  A woman's right to choose (or, as the flip side might argue, a fetus' right to live) is integral to someone's identity, and it makes sense that it would inspire people to make signs and yell at each other in public.  Staying above the fray is a group of people called escorts.  No, not the escorts you're thinking of (although Collin would love to hear their opinion on reproductive rights as well).  Amanda Cohen and Jo Beth Harrison are two of many women who escort people into and out of abortion clinics, doing their best to keep them calm and protect them from protesters.  Collin sat down with them to talk all about the ins and outs of abortion, women's issue, and basic goddamn human decency.  Also, Collin plugs a LIVE AWKWARD MOMENTS AT THE LAUGH FACTORY ON MAY 29TH!  Follow the podcast on Twitter at www.twitter.com/awkwardpodcast, like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkwardmomentspod, and check out Collin's website at www.collinabullock.com  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.

Episode 116 - Mr. T’s Daughter Erica Clark

• March 23rd, 2016

What does your dad do?  Collin's is retired, but he used to be a professor.  Maybe yours is a doctor, lawyer, waiter, construction worker, what have you.  Erica Clark's dad is actor/pop-culture-personality Mr. T.  Yeah, the guy with the mohawk and the gold chains and the pitying fools and all of that.  There's no way that you don't know who he is, but for Erica he was always just a dad, with all the good and bad things that entails.  She sat down with Collin to talk all about the man behind the persona, what it's like to grow up with celebrity all around you, and her new book "How to Be A Stalker".  Follow us on twitter at @awkwardpodcast and @collinabullock and like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkwardmomentspod.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.

Episode 115 - Professional Lounge Lizard Jack Avery

• March 16th, 2016

There's just something about the American south and southwest that just makes drinking stories and sex stories even crazier.  Maybe it's the accents, maybe it's the heat, maybe it's just the whole outlaw vibe.  Jack Avery grew up in Texas, and then moved to Arkansas, and all the while he was devoting his life to the pursuit of wine (really whiskey), women (the drunker the better), and song (but none of that Nickleback shit).  He sat down with Collin to talk all about being a real-deal good 'ol boy.  Check out the website at www.awkwardmomentspod.com, follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/awkwardpodcast, and like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkwardmomentspod.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend!
