Playing Catch-Up With The Episodes!


Friends, I recently attempted to integrate the podcast notes into thewvsr.com, believing it would make sense to have one website for all things Surf Report. Well… that didn’t really work out the way I’d hoped, and I’m going to re-set this bitch. Below are the ones we missed, or were posted elsewhere. After this, we’ll go back to posting the program notes here, as before. Sorry for the chaos and confusion.

Ep. 349: The Universe Is Constantly Playing Jokes On Me

In this one I give you another update on my Fitbit sleep data, tell you about an absurd show I watched on Max called Naked Attraction, share an update on the Amazon Canada situation, and tell you about the impending visit to my parents’ house.

I hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening!

Ep. 348: These Guys Are Going To Be Virgins Forever!

In this one I complain about some maddening customer service problems I’m experiencing, share a call from my friend Tim in Dunbar, tell you about a conversation I had with my dad on Sunday, and a crazy conference call I dialed into last week.

In this one I tell you about a baffling but ultimately successful visit to Wendy’s, some thoughts on the end of the baseball season, high-cuteness of the murderous neighborhood cat who hangs out on our porch, fact-checking a TV show set in the 1960s, and the two annoying yappers next door.

Ep. 346: I’m Not Out Looking For Trouble, But Trouble Finds Me

In this one I tell you about even more extreme homeowner annoyances we endured last week, a disappointing phrase that someone I love uttered, and my love/hate relationship with our visit of a favorite watering hole this weekend. All this and fresh new calls from Steve in Texas, Producer Zipp, and Ian in Scotland.

I hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening!

Ep. 345: I Mean This Was Almost Biblical

In this one I tell you about my attempt to just order food the way it’s supposed to be served, one of the craziest and scariest rain storms I’ve ever seen in my life, how baseball is taking years off my life, some insane news about Sunshine & Mumbles, and some more info about the comically-elongated hound.

I hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening!

Ep. 344: Return Of A Comically-Elongated Animal

In this one I tell you about the three long days we kept Dusty the wiener dog again, give you an update on the younger boy who moved out a few weeks ago, and share a call from our pal Patrick, who brings up the subject of the Barcelona diarrhea plane.

In this one I tell you about the demoralizing return of the blast furnace, an update on the murderous cat that lives on our front porch, our anniversary dinner at a semi-fancy Italian restaurant, three aunts in the hospital, an update on the younger boy’s relocation to Pittsburgh, an unusual baseball observation, and a couple of TV shows I’m watching.

In this one I tell you about our ongoing obsession with House Hunters International and how I generally want to punch one of the so-called hunters in the face, Toney’s and my 30th wedding anniversary, and a quick call from Ron in Florida, which set me off on a lengthy (and questionable) discussion of travel toilet troubles.

Ep. 341: The Whole Idea Just Makes Me Feel Dirty All Over

In this one I tell you about a Twitter/X problem that’s causing me to think concerning thoughts, why I don’t really follow the news anymore, some Apple TV troubles I’m having, getting quotes on some annoying yard work. All this and fresh new calls from Ian in Scotland, Patrick, and Steve in Texas.

I hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening!

Ep. 340: Disappointing Vacations!

In this one I tell you about the vacations I’ve encountered throughout my ridiculous life that didn’t live up to expectations. Some because of locale, and others because of circumstance. It’s travel gone bad!

I hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening!

Ep. 339: There Were Complications

In this one I tell you about our quickie visit to Pittsburgh to take in a Reds vs. Pirates game, and to start setting up the younger boy’s new apartment. As you might expect, there were complications, sizable complications.

I hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening!

Ep. 336: A Spectacular Supernova Of Chipped Beef And Gravy!

In this one I tell you about the terrible week I had last week, which led to a realization that I should be more thankful when things are just “normal.” I list some things that I regularly take for granted, but definitely shouldn’t. And I share a call from the hotline from Producer Zipp, which leads to a discussion about the the Mothman legend. It’s a big ridiculous mess, which happens sometimes.

I hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening!

Ep. 335: I Felt Like I Was Inside A Kaleidoscope

In this one I tell you about how the universe paid me back for mocking another man’s podcast, an optometrist visit that kicked my ass and added fuel to my full menu of neuroses, a visit to the northern-most Waffle House in America, and a trip to Target to purchase stuff for the younger boy’s new apartment in Pittsburgh.

I hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening!

Ep. 334: Three New Calls To The Hotline!

In this one I tell you about my battle with two tubs o’ granite-hard ice cream, and take three new calls from the Surf Report hotline:

  • Producer Zipp: Attempting to put a curse on my beloved Cincinnati Reds for sweeping his beloved Houston Astros, and a discussion of why the Reds changed their name during the 1950s.
  • Wisey in T-Town: Surprised that my “worst job of all-time” wasn’t selling meat door to door, spying on a teen in a grocery store and catching him doing something gross yet hilarious, and his worst job of all-time, which sounds like pure hell.
  • Ian in Scotland: Another surprising fact about our good friend, and a question about whether I ever played sports as a youth.

I hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening! I’m not sure why the sound isn’t great, I apologize for that. It’ll be fixed by next time, for sure.

Ep. 333: Anxiety And Aggravation Is All That’s Left

In another edition of Ridin’ To Work With Jeff I tell a ridiculous story about getting a leg cramp at work and nearly turning over a cubicle, discuss a conversation I had with my dad and the shots he took at me utilizing the memory of Andre the Giant, and bitched at length about the All Star Break and fair weather Reds fans.

I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for listening!

Ep. 332: Other Than That It Was Kind Of Fun

In this one I tell you about the cheap gas they were selling at Sheetz on the 4th of the July and the calamity it caused, the changes I made to the Surf Report website, and two day-trips I took last week:

  • To Philly to see one of my favorite bands, The Eels
  • To Baltimore for a Reds vs Orioles game, my first trip to Camden Yards

Both were great, but one didn’t go exactly as planned. By a longshot.

I hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening!

Ep. 331: That’ll Never Happen to Me!

In this one I tell you about some terrible mishaps that will never happen to me, and share three items from the notebook that might actually be funny someday — if I work on them a little more. You guys can let me know.

I hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening!

Ep. 330: The Worst Job I Ever Had!

In this one I tell you about the absolute worst job I ever had, and share a fresh new call to the hotline from our old friend Ian in Scotland.

I hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening!

Ep. 329: Dey’re Coming Down Dere From Canada!

In this one I tell you about the crazy-ass Canadian wildfire smoke we endured last week, share a hilarious clip from local TV news about it, discuss some fresh aggravations I encountered while visiting a Waffle House and dealing with our credit union, and a ludicrous statement someone recently made about the quality of the pizza in this area. Also: a disturbing notification my phone fed to me in a cruel, cruel fashion.

I hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening!

Ep. 328: I Nearly Died In A Fiery Crash!

In this one I tell you about:

  • How I was nearly decapitated on Interstate 81
  • How Toney sabotages other peoples’ shopping carts
  • The fabulous fraudulent cookie aisle at Aldi

I hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening!

Ep. 327: Your Car’s Ready, Boss!

In this one I discuss the season (series?) finale of Ted Lasso, another interesting interaction with Manny, Moe, and Jack, our annoying roof-replacement summer, my impending first trip to Camden Yards in Baltimore, the apparent Grim Reaper reputation I have at work, and a great documentary I watched about a drive-in theater not too far from us.

I hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening!
