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.

• 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 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!
