For Episode 2 of Staring at the Sun, we binge-watched the cult-classic TV series, FREAKS & GEEKS, and finally announced the winner of our Friday the 13th premiere giveaway courtesy of FRIGHT-RAGS.com.
Join us for Episode 3 in just a couple of weeks where we'll be discussing wedding-themed movies in honor of wedding season... and make sure to like us on facebook for more updates and giveaways: www.facebook.com/staringatthesunpodcast
*We apologize for the minor technical difficulties with the audio in this episode... We're still working out the kinks!
Dave King is my copilot again this week as we discuss an eventful week of games that included a Westbrook vs. Bledsoe showdown, a beatdown of epic proportions by the Spurs, a wrestling match against the Heat and a slump busting victory over Orlando.
Randy Hill from Fox Sports Arizona joins the show to discuss the X's and O's of the Suns offense and addresses the topic of player effort.
We also touch on the negative news from the week including Markieff Morris calling out the fans (then getting ejected the next game) and Channing Frye taking a shot at the Suns front office. Basically, a pretty normal week for the Suns as of late.
What are the consequences to encouraging or allowing your kids to do things before they're old enough to understand them or process them?
Is growing up your kids too early a way of taking away their innocence? Do we live out our fantasies through our children sometimes? Is it right for us to do that? Do we set our kids up for trouble by letting them experience things that we may have had to wait to experience when we were their ages? What about when we let them experience things that we did experience at their ages even though it got us into trouble at their ages?
In your opinion, what is the right age to let your kids:
Smoke weed or experiment with drugs
Get into a serious relationship
Get on birth control
Travel on their own
Drive a car
Experiment with weapons
Manage their own money
Stay home alone
Wear high heels
Purchase things for a girlfriend or a boyfriend
Get a job
Hang around with teenaged parents
Do we allow our kids to grow and learn independently or do we navigate them through their young lives and and keep them safe?
The time has come for fathers and men in general to be represent and to be represented. Far too often, we forget the importance of the positive male presence in the home and/or in our lives. Sure, we know that their are plenty of deadbeat dads and absentee dads that have had a negative effect on plenty of children's lives out there but why should they always have the spotlight more than the good dads and the good men that have fought tooth and nail to ensure a good life for their children and their families? That's unacceptable but don't get me wrong, this won't be a goody goody daddy two shoes show. For those that feel the need to downplay the significance of fathers and the male influence in our lives, we invite y'all to bring your valid and invalid sour grapes gripes to the forefront too. Everyone's feelings and experiences will be welcomed and represented. Fair is fair.
We need men to come out and represent on this show. If you are a dad and/or you have been a father to a child that was not your biological child and was instrumental to their growth and development, we need to hear from you on this show.
If you're a dad that has been estranged from your children for any reason and you would like to get it off of your chest, this is your show. No excuses this time. No baby mama excuses, child support excuses, incarceration excuses, age excuses or anything. Now is the time to represent and try to get right. Tell your story. Fix your story.
There is no crying in fatherhood. Well, sometimes there is but I'm saying.
This is the show that will allow you to talk about any and everything that is on your mind or anything that is getting on your nerves.
Call into the show at 347-677-1533 and get your shit off. We all need to do it sometimes.

Who doesn't want to get their weight to a manageable level and stop getting sick all the time? Who doesn't want to look great in their clothes and receive compliments wherever they go?
Who likes to spend hours in the mirror obsessing about what to wear and how it really looks to others?
Who doesn't want to wipe their minds free of insecurity and self-doubt?
Would you agree that most people want to eat the right things? Why do people really make excuses for eating a lot of unhealthy and non-nutritional foods? Is it simply because they taste good or is there a deeper reason at work?
Is it true that some people are too embarrassed to workout in front of others so they either just keep living in an unhealthy way or they try more dangerous weight loss methods so they can look good enough to go to the gym?
Are there support groups for that? Is there help? What kind of help is there available?
This Wednesday we will have Linda Smith of Linda's Vegetarian Village (6381 Germantown Ave Phila, PA 19144) on hand to assist us with some great information about Healthy and tasty vegan meals, healing herbs and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and how it can be achieved without sacrificing taste or time.

You get what this show is about? This is a call in show to ask about the timeline of anything you wanna know and we're gonna try to answer everything to the best of our ability.
It never hurts to ask right? Let's see what we get out of this.
Make up sex. What exactly is it? What's it to you?
Is it a good thing? A bad thing? Something that all couples do? Something that has become more popular in the media in recent years? Is it safe? Is it dangerous? Is it something that makes up for an argument? Does it end with just an argument or disagreement or is violence sometimes what's being made up for?
Are there people who actually start arguments or fights in order to initiate make up sex? Would someone do that?
Is the sexual energy that comes after an argument healthy? Can it be unhealthy?
Is make up sex really just a cover up for domestic violence?
If you like make up sex but the person that you're with doesn't like it or understand it, how will that work? Can that work?
Do most people who engage in make up sex usually know what they are getting into or does it get introduced to some people at the most inopportune times? Can you learn to like it and if so what does that say about a person?
Boy are we gonna get into this one. The question is how will we get out of this one? LOL
This show is kinda about eating disorders but not all the way.
Does food make some people feel better? Does it substitute for other deficiencies in people's lives?
Recently I put out a question on Facebook dealing with this situation: I just heard a conversation between two women in the fitness room and one of them was saying that she gained a lot of weight because she didn't have a man for a long time.
Huh? Loneliness = weight gain?
Can someone explain this logic to me?
One of the things that many responders eluded to was that the woman in this example probably compensated her loneliness with food. Is this true? Can that work? Are there many people who resort to this?
Can eating unhealthy foods make a person feel better emotionally? If so, why does it have to be the unhealthy foods that do the trick? When does it stop? Is it a woman thing? Do men go through this as well? If men go through the same thing then is it for the same reasons?
Will men or women change their lifestyle when or if they get what they have been missing?
We'll get into these things and more and we'll also talk about turning all of this around and how eating nutritional foods can also cause emotional problems.
This show will be the absolute bomb! Tell some friends.
What happens when you end a relationship with someone but you have forged a really strong bond with the kids during your relationship with your ex man/woman even though the kids aren't your biological kids? You may have had a hand in raising that so how do you handle that? Do you have the right to keep a relationship with them? How would that work? Could you set up visitation rights to still see the kids even though you're no longer with the mother/father nor are the kids your biological kids? Yeah, this is a serious situation.
What happens when the kids ask where you are and when you're coming back around? What about when it is explained why you are gone and why you won't be back to stay? What do you do about missing them? Is that like divorcing the kids even though they aren't your biological kids?
Do the kids have to sneak and see you? Do you have to sneak and see the kids?
What about when either of you begin a new relationship with someone else? How do you explain to them that you just love the kids and probably still do for them but you're not dealing witht the ex anymore? Would you believe that if your new love told you that? Would a situation like that get in the way?
Some people who have been in this stuation have actually taken custody of the kids? How does that work?
Do you still keep doing for the kids that are not your own kids and if so, for how long?
This is your show right here! Tell all your friends and relatives to tune into this one because it's gonna be something else!
Are parents who aren't married influencing people who want to get married to remain single?
Many people who think about having children want to get married. It's the traditional way of raising a family, it often eases the pain of managing finances, children are said to be better adjusted in a household where there are two married parents and the fit into society seems to be a good one for married people.
Many parents who are not married make ways to make a decent living and provide for their children financially, emotionally and educationally. Some fair better than their married counterparts.
Some single parents are eligible for assistance programs such as grants to send their children to private schools. This can be the case even if they make a decent wage. Is that fair to married couples?
What are some things that single parents benefit from that married parents might not get?
What about the stigma of having multiple children by different moms or dads? Why do some find it easier to deal with this stigma than others do?
With so many single parents in our communities nowadays, is being a single parent a big deal anymore or has it become something that we've come to expect and accept?
There are many people who refuse to have children without being married and others who refuse to date anyone who has kids. Is that right?
Is being married a badge of honor?
Is being a single parent unacceptable?
All my single parents should come out for this one whether you like being single or not because this one is gonna be hot! Tell your story and how you feel.
