Ken McKim and Spike McGuire – It’s Time You Learned About Pain

“Life is pain, highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.” – The Dread Pirate Roberts

The Worst Little Podcast – S5 E24

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.

Ken McKim

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)….

Hey…

 

…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!

This is a great episode. We had a lot of fun with Six Mile Station promoting their upcoming shows. But there is a special treat! Something you have to listen to. See what Six Mile Station had in store for Thee Reverend Rory and Chewie.

Spike McGuire

Just Nick Ramirez wasn’t able to make it – he was too busy rocking out with his band, The Liver Scars, and Cadaver Dogs down at the always entertaining Shea’s Tavern. Killer time – and you probably missed it!

Capturing the Inner Adam

Adam Springob joins us this week as a solo artist. He’s been stepping out from above Greg Gilmore’s very small shadow and showcasing his own singing and songwriting. It’s really good stuff. Unfortunately, you won’t hear it!!!! He brought a damn band with him this week. Actually – he brought TWO bands with him to make one giNORmous band called …. Something Or Other. Joining him in the studio are Michelle Belle (guitar – Scarlet Presence), Carter Stellon (drums – Scarlet Presence), Samantha Gates (fiddle), and Greg Gilmore (bass – Kanes NOT Merkin – lets be clear about this: Greg is not in The Merkins. He’s not that good.)

We had a really fun time with these guys – so much fun that Nick and The Rev had to take off before the show was done!!! They’re not even sure what happens yet!!! There is a lot of talking, yelling and chaos  – more than usual – really. I’m supposed to take down notes and tease it out here, but I seem to have neglected to do that this week, although there is a really awesome drawing of a polar bear holding a surfboard next to the note “Sam seems so nice – why these a-holes?”.

SO, normally I tell you about the picks for this weekend, right? Well, this week, there is only one show you should concern yourself with (despite what Adam says on the show – srsly, fuck that guy): MARIANARCHY 2013: A BENEFIT FOR DALE KELLAMS!!!

Get your asses to Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor this weekend, May 17 & 18! starts at 3pm on Friday, 2pm on Saturday!

Drummers? They Don’t need no stinking drummer – they’s the Six Mile Station and they’ve got a ton of strings! Six Mile Station is prety killer. Spike McGuire on guitar and vocals, Tyson Schroeder on the stand up bass and backing vocals, Alán Burtón on mandolin and vocals, and Nathan Carter on the fiddle, all to kick your ASS with folk music. When it comes to catchy and harmony, they don’t fuck around. They play three songs for us and sneak a peek at a track from their new album.

Chewie is with us again, but relegated to the back room because of the awesome of Six Mile Station. The Rev is clueless, Nick the voice of reason, and Dogwater Dick: still gay.

We had a lot of fun this week. Thanks for listening!
