The Worst Little Podcast – S5 E27 – Download Link
Warning: This episode is jam packed full of awesome. First, our guest – Idol Smasher, a Reno metal band that includes a member of the Dogwater family. Nate Sanders, Assistant Engineer on extended hiatus, is the guitarist for this wicked ripper of a band; he brings with him, his drummer, Tyrus Legg, and lead screech owl, John Bigby. John brings with him, his lovely, but mute, girlfriend Nessie – another Worst Little Podcast first! Never in five seasons has a guest brought a S.O. into the studio and made out with them throughout the entire episode, but here on Episode 201, we bring it to you. Like seriously, with tongue, and slurping and full-nipple.
I do apologize in advance. Really, it’s great.
They did not, however, bring a bass player. His name was Alec or Axl or Alix or something metal-y. He fails. He’s a bass player and missed the show. I don’t care if he was rescuing puppies. But it’s cool. The rest of the group was cool as hell. Idol Smasher has a lot of shows coming up in the near future; we suggest you check them out if you are of the metal persuasion.
We didn’t even have time to ask around the guys what they did for the weekend! There was so much going on with the band and some surprise guests…
“Surprise guests?” you ask? That’s right! Fresh off the road after 10 months and 20,000 miles, KARMA has returned to Reno! Greg Gilmore, Michelle Belle and Carter Stellon all stopped by the studios to surprise Dogwater Dick in the afternoon and he just set up a shit-load of microphones so everyone could play. It was really really good to see our old friends again. We didn’t get into it too much with them this week, so as not to disrespect the actual guest, Idol Smasher, but they are booked for an upcoming episode, so please stay tuned!

You can welcome KARMA back to town at their big big homecoming show next weekend, Oct 17th at Singer Social Club.
Thanks for Listening!
Yes, we’ve really been doing this that long. Mostly unpaid.

Here it is, for your enjoyment – a clip show! Featuring much of the cast of The Worst Little Podcast, past and present, in the last 200 episodes and some repeat offenders drinking copious amounts of beer and whiskey! In studio we have, your hosts, Thee Reverend Rory Dowd, Mr. Nick Ramirez, Dogwater Dick and Josh Martin, along with our small horde of guests that include Reno musicians and friends of the show: Spencer Kilpatrick, Mikie Haley, Felix Danger, Myke Read, Rashidul Kader, Zac Curtis, Evan Humphries and a Mystery Guest!
There’s clips from shows going back to the first season and as recently as this 5th one. There are … a lot. We made Rick play jukebox. He’s the only one who wasn’t inebriated and could take notes. There’s a lot of talking and conversation stepping, some rudeness, some love, you take the good, you take the bad, and there you have – AH! Who’s kidding, there’s nothing good about this show. Except the music. Always the Reno music.
We’d like to thank all of our friends, guests and sponsors over the years – You guys are great and we would not be doing this without you.
Thanks for listening!
It’s an acquired taste!
The Worst Little Podcast – S5 E25 – Season 5 Episode 25
As the 199th episode of The Worst Little Podcast in the World, this show marks the end of a chapter, and so! we return to the beginning. New half-assed and not very well planned ideas are the name of the game! Listen in for Nick’s explanation partway through the show. See if you can spot it! Our guests this week are John and John, a They Might Be Giants cover band from Reno NV that has played exactly one show prior to this recording.
John and John is a labor of love
(mostly your ears’ labor and their love of torture) brought to you by John Pat (Pat Rhea) and John Rory (Thee Reverend Rory Dowd). As a duo they have delighted at least a dozen people this year, not including the cast of this show. It’s a side project they haven’t been actually working on for very long at all, but what they lack in experience they make up for in sheer A-for-effort…ness.
You can catch John and John next at the Great Basin Geeks Con (GBGCon) at Reno Town Mall this October! It will be very exciting and far more practiced. And you should really listen to the whole show this time, especially the very very end card. Chekkit out. Rory’s performance on bass is uh-mazing.
Please join us next week for our 200th episode. Yes, seriously – don’t read me with that look on your face. We will be having a long overdue true shit-show – lots of guests and no scheduled music. We gonna have a
(clip show) partay! Along with playing some of our favorite songs from over the last 5 seasons, we will also be joined by current and past cast members and Reno low-lifes luminaries, including Felix Polanski, Spencer Kilpatrick, Jeff Done, Nate Sanders, Jenny PezDeSpencer, Andy86 and more! Who knows what fun will be had? Who knows how many shots there will be? Who knows if it will even be listenable?
Thanks for listening! (Like forreals this time.)
“Life is pain, highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.” – The Dread Pirate Roberts
It’s that frantic time of year in Reno, when all the summer festivals are packed in on top of one another, all the Burners return home from their sojourn on The Playa and the weather goes back to being schizophrenic. I stay home a lot.But that just gives me more time to catch up on all the old podcasts as we roll up into EPISODE 200 in just a few weeks! We are really stoked that we’ve been around this long and we get all the support we do from you unresponsive listeners. I love you.
This week on the show we are joined by Ken McKim, a Reno-area Chronic Illness Advocate and long-time friend of Dogwater Dick. Ken’s goal as an advocate is to help non-sufferers understand the kind of long term pain and discomfort that chronic illness patients routinely, even daily, go through. Many of these pain symptoms are brushed off or downplayed by people who don’t have these conditions with a “If I can’t see it, it’s not real,” attitude. These are documented and real conditions that are not ‘just in their heads’ that include ailments like: Crohn’s Disease, Lupus, Depression, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), Fibromyalgia and more.
In order to bring understanding, to the public, to friends, to politicians and even spouses, Ken McKim has made a few series of videos, creating analogies and comparisons in real terms the average
idiot, like myself layperson can understand. It’s a noble and daunting undertaking, but if you are interested in finding out more about Ken Mckim’s work, please visit his website at www.dontpunishpain.com where his 17-video series is available for free. He is also the creator of the 4-part series, “Dear Healthy People,” available on YouTube.
It’s a pretty heavy subject, so that’s why we also brought back by popular demand (mostly his)….
…the awesome Spike McGuire! Our last episode with Spike had some issues and never was properly released, so he’s back again with another set of toe tappers. Spike McGuire is a folk/Americana singer/songwriter (FASS) from Reno NV and frontman for Six Mile Station. Spike is still killing it all over the West Coast, but never fails to be back in Reno for the Loud As Folk, a long running Reno music series held on the First Thursday of every month. It’s good to have Spike in here this week. He’s always a treat and DAMN! can he strum on a guitar.
Thanks for Listening!
