We Can Be Happy Underground

[UPDATE 02/11/15] My new podcast Potter & Daughter is live now! You can download the first episode here or subscribe via RSS or iTunes (as of 2/12/15 the iTunes link is still waiting on Apple approval).


Fancy Patreon Patrons get each episode a week early and can already download episode 2 HERE.

Here’s the description from the podcast website: 

Potter And Daughter is a Harry Potter themed podcast where Joel Watson (cartoonist, geek dad and creator of the online comic HijiNKS ENSUE) talked to his seven year old daughter, Lily, as she reads through the Harry Potter book series.

In each episode Joel and Lily cover about 1/4 to 1/3 of a book, discussing what happened, why it happened and what lessons Lily is learning from the books as she reads them. It’s part Cliff’s Notes and part cute and instrospective conversation between a father and daughter who love the same books for the same (and sometimes totally different) reasons.

RATING: Always safe for work and safe to share with your kids.

My daughter and I made it together, I’m really proud of it and I hope you enjoy it.

I’m pretty sure that’s the end of the Girl Scout Cookies storyline. What if my daughter wants to some day join the Girl Scouts? My own child, slinging those delectable discs of deceit?! Or is that the perfect solution? I could get the cookies I NEED straight from the source, without fear of judgement or reprisal. It would be like my very own little coconut dusted, chocolate drenched methadone clinic.

Is there an employee discount? Or would they just credit me for all the boxes I’ve already purchased and give me some sort of Ultimate Executive Black Level Multi-Platinum Cookie Commander Card that grants me free cookies for life? Any time I wandered up to a Girl Scout and said some code phrase like, “The VEGETABLE CART was OUT of ASPARAGUS,” they’d just slyly hand me 40 boxes in a brown paper bag. I know you get a card like that if you ever save the President’s life, but it’s only good at Subway and only after 5pm.

Recommended Daily Allowance

My Patreon passed the $1750 milestone (THANK YOU SO MUCH, FANCY PATRONS), so my new podcast “Potter & Daughter” will debut in February. The first 3 episodes are edited and ready to upload. Expect the first one during the week of 2/9/15. You can learn more about it here.

COMMENTERS: What food will they find clutched in your cold dead hands when they drag your body of the crevasse that was once your couch?
