Audio Mullet


Audio Mullet is a podcast about things that may have gone out of fashion but are eternally cool. Mike Nelson (MST3K/Rifftrax), Doug TenNapel (Earthworm Jim / Catscratch) and Ethan Nicolle (Axe Cop/Bearmageddon) get together every week to have a conversation about something out of style. They also talk about other things like their dads. old jobs, and occasionally a fart story. Find more about audiomullet and listen to bonus content at www.audiomullet.com

With Mike still on Hiatus, Doug and Ethan decide to crack open some old emails. The first email Audio Mullet received was from a man named Bryant Hains, who sent a full list of potential topics. We go through them one by one, answering Bryant's entire email.

While we know Bryant will love this episode, we are confident many others will too because Bryant had some great questions on a variety of topics.

Here are the questions we answer in this episode:

 

Art/creativity topics

-What do you do once you’ve accomplished your dream or career goal, especially if it’s sooner than you thought? Now what?

-Discipline vs inspiration. Do you get up and work at it every day or do you do other things and wait for the bolt of inspiration to come?

-How do you get past the “what’s the point” or “I’m wasting my time” feeling when you run into it while working on a project?

-History of Christian art vs Christian art today. Are we victims of our own success after creating some of the best visual art (Michaelangelo, etc) and music (Bach, etc) in history? What happened to the greatness? Anything left to do?

-Your opinions on the church being a patron of the arts in history vs now?

 

Family topics

-Keeping the fire alive with the wife even after many years and/or kids

-Work life balance: does it exist and tactics to maintain it

-Opinions and tactics for how to prevent work burnout/when to go on vacation

-Wife/husband roles and responsibilities in each of your families. Suggestions for others. 

-Balancing guy time vs family time

-You all (and I) love tobacco and alcohol in moderation. Where is the line? Difference between those things and other drugs?

 

Silly topics

-Each of your Kevin bacon scores

-dumb hobbies you each have

-Home diy failures/successes

-getting kids to eat tricks

-getting kids to sleep tricks

-Embarrassing work or something that you hope doesn’t crop up on YouTube/internet
