    Trampled Underfoot Podcast – 87 – 20% French Dip

    Eloy is 20% French Dip? Yes. He figured it’s his birthday, it’s the end of the world, so why not indulge with some fast food? But he soon regretted it! In all fairness, its both Mark Lindsay’s and Eloy’s birthday this month. So what’s wrong with a little bit of overindulgence? That leads to the cast talking about age, wisdom, and life lessons learned. The duo then talk about current events, the pandemic to be more precise, and learning self sufficiency, independence, and simple skills like being able to cook for yourself – something that is sorely lacking these days, it would appear. We hope you’ll check it out! We…

    Trampled Underfoot Podcast – 84 – Bagpipes Family Discipline and Junk Mail

    Are you on the Do Not Call List? Is that list even relevant anymore? We are being overrun by junk mail and telemarketers. It’s so true! Mark and Eloy discuss and it leads to entertaining observations. Another thing that ticks us off is the route that software applications have gone in the past few years. You know – subscriptions with re-occurring payments as opposed to buying the product one time and being done with it. We get into this issue as well. Now this is a funny question to ask, but since it’s St. Patrick’s Day, we’ll go for it. Have you ever had a neighbor that plays the bagpipes?…

    Trampled Underfoot Podcast – Episode 73 – The Night They Drove Old Lindsay Down

    “If you listen to the music, it will go through certain cycles…” – Lindsay “It was a town surrounded by fields, farmlands…” – Escagedo “You have to really plan ahead if you’re going to do something on the shady side…” – Lindsay “And some were waterworn, rotted…” – Escagedo What are they talking about? Well, in probably the most unconventional New Year’s episode of a podcast, Eloy & Mark talk about Christmas Muzak, family histories, Christmas 2019, small town vs big city, and a couple of other interesting things. No noisemakers, no shouting, no loud celebrations. Just two guys from different decades, backgrounds, and opposite sides of the continent, discussing…

    Trampled Underfoot Podcast – Episode 48 – Netflix – Cool 80s – Learning to Drive

    In an attempt to lighten up the topics this week, Mark and Eloy talk about the rise of Netflix, and the Stranger Things series. As is our style, we smoothly switch to the topic of very cool things that came about in the early 80s. This, of course, then digresses into a discussion about the cars of the day, and earlier, then learning to drive. Believe it or not, we bring up several other topics and have more cool conversations too. Sit back, relax, check it out, and enjoy!

    Trampled Underfoot Podcast – Episode 47 – Family Lore and DNA

    This week, Mark and Eloy talk about the story of people found isolated through time in the rural mountains of Spain. Does Eloy come from them? We think so. Who were they and why were they considered Jews or Moors? What did DNA testing find? Well then going to England we talk about Steve Nealon and how he found a nobleman way back in his family tree from back in the 1100s. He was married to the aunt of King Harold the first! Wow, lot’s of cool conversations. We also talk about a story Katie Dotson shared with us about Orson Welles and it’s a great one. Believe it or…
