Alicia Unleashed -The Return of the Mo’ bros

Episode 102!

Listener Discretion is advised for this one. We said it in our opener but we must repeat, the Cast of Alicia Unleashed and our Guests are NOT medical/psychological professionals.

 

IT’S OUR ANNUAL VISIT WITH THE MO’BROS, Ben Cannon, Geoff Turke and Tom Leard!

 

We catch up with the guys and talk about what has happened in the last year since we left Tom’s dining room table! 3 Weddings, Baptisms, New Jobs, 18 month olds, 17 month olds and of course we talk about Zooming!

Just like the past 2 years sitting down with the ‘Bros, we discuss Men’s Health and the Movember Movement. This year being the year it is, the ‘Bros and the Movember Movement have focused more on Awareness and Mental Health Awareness and we get iiiiiiiiiiiin to it!

We discuss what it is like to be part of a movement that is about Awareness of Prostate & Testicular Cancers and Male Depression as it is raising funds for programs to assist with awareness in a PANDEMIC! (unsure if you guys knew we were in one).

In true Alicia Unleashed fashion, WE TALK ABOUT BALLS (and self exploration…probably the best moment in 102 episodes)!

If there is anything you do this week, give it a listen or give the website a look (or give this episode a like or a share).

Here are some resources that were discussed in this episode. If you or someone you know are struggling, please reach out to one of these numbers or sites. There is no shame in asking for help, these guys will attest to this. Also give these guys a dollar or two (if you can).

How long will he last?

I have always been a fan of Cam Newton since he entered the scene.

According to a news article earlier this morning, Cam Newton said: “Don’t believe the hype,” while walking on a treadmill. “You know what I’m saying? I never once — and I say this right now — I never once wanted to leave Carolina.”

Question begs, do you think he will last the entire season? Do you think he will stay or go once his year is up?

Let’s not forget in October 2017 when he was raked over the coals for being sexist.

How many people have the Pats signed just to see them go after a game or before the season has begun?

 

 

 

The half St. Peter- 2020 Fiesta Cast

 

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR!
The Half St. Peter..aka 2020’s Fiestacast

Or aka “BSide will edit the shit out of this”

There may not be an altar at Fort square, no seine boats or Dory races in the Harbor, no zazitzas in front of the club. BUT ALICIA UNLEASHED WILL STILL HAVE OUR FIESTA CAST…SCREW YOU COVID.

Happy 16th birthday to Tyler D! Alicia discusses him coming in to the world in basically preventing his father from walking the pole. BSide discusses (maybe for far too long about her mother going through process for a Double Lung Transplant)..it ties in to Fiesta.

AND SAM BARRETT IS BACK. Also Bside’s neighbor Nikkita silently joins in.

Join us for this wild podcast ride (it’s not like you have plans)…VIIIIIIII….oh wait…

See if you can spot BSide’s editing magic.

Letters from Home

 

Imagine your Nana/Nona/Grammy not being able to visit your Grampy/Nunu/Papa at the Nursing Residence they call home or vice versa.

Imagine their daily routine, the love of their life not being able to check in with them, hold hands and have that connection they’ve had for so many years.

It’s a lonely time for so many us, but for our seniors that can’t get visitors it’s heartbreaking for them, their families and the staff.

If you have a greeting card sitting around or construction paper, consider sending a card to a senior that may need it more that you know.

We spoke with the staff of Den-Mar Health and Rehabilitation Center and cards will sit in a quarantine for a day or so but then will be distributed to the residents.

Cards can be sent to:
Den-Mar Health

Rockport, MA 01966

Thank You, Gunner Muth

Episode 92-(on location)

For the past 23 years, Gunner Richard Muth has educated thousands of teenagers on the North Shore as an Iinstructor for the MCJROTC at Gloucester High School (aside from a year or two in Lynn).

This is his final year as an Educator/Instructor/Mentor at GHS. Prior to this, he served his country in the United States Marine Corps for 20+ years as an Infantry Instructor before retiring. Not knowing what to expect teaching high school students, he embarked on a decades-long journey that has left an impressionable impact on students and colleagues alike. B-Side even got a little help honoring Gunner from some friends.

B-Side sits down with Richard Muth to talk about his 23 years as an educator; what it has meant to him, and what it is like to teach teenagers of Gloucester. He even confirms that B-Side did, in fact, throw a desk (but don’t worry—the statute of limitations is over).

Gunner Muth would also like to invite the public to join them in celebration on Thursday May 16th at 6pm in the auditorium for the ROTC Awards Night to honor those students for their achievements for the school year.

It was Military Appreciation Month as well as National Teacher Appreciation Week during this recording.

Alicia Unleashed would like to also thank to following for their participation in this recording:
Rick Moore, Lisa Cusumano Gray, Kayla Pinkham, Kara Wagner, Sarah Bondarev, Jen Duston, Jessica Gross, Aaron Smith, Annette Parco, Chris Severance, Jon Blair, and Peter Cannavo.

Gunner,

I cannot begin to express the amount of gratitude I have for you as an educator because, let’s be real, you were unlike any other teacher I’d ever had. You were patient, tolerant, funny, and had different, undetectable ways of teaching us life lessons. While I was part of your formative years when you were getting your feet wet as a “teacher of teens,” and we tested your limits every chance we could get, you are still the same Gunner you were in ’96. The impact that you have left on your students runs deep. Without you, I believe I never would have survived through or graduated from high school. Thank you, Gunner, for your Service, both to our Country and to us Students.

Crease that Uni one last time and then hang it up. Congratulations on your retirement; you’ve earned it.

-Bridget Ernest, Fishbowl Class Member 96-00
