Hey. This is Paul Kondo. This is the Podcast Gumbo podcast and I’ve got a rhetorical question for ya.

Are you like me and find those things we call National Days, like Cheeseball Day or worse, Moldy Cheese Day, amusing? Yeah, me too. So each week, I’ll have one of my podcast friends challenge me to find an episode related to one of those days and I’ll be releasing it on the actual day it occurs. 

So, let’s get to it. What is today’s National Day?

Hi Paul, it’s Johanna. 2020 is taking its toll and so many people find themselves in a funk. And not the arm-swaying, booty-shaking kind of funk, Paul. I mean the depressed kind. That’s why I need your help raising the vibration on this funkathon by promoting National Get Funky Day. It’s time to get our groove back. Give us some ideas for celebrating life and spreading loving light on this funkiest of holidays. 

Yes, Johanna, there’s no doubt many of us are in a funk this year. But thanks to October 5th, we have National Get Funky Day and I have the cure for what ails us. Yes, I’m talking about the song, Play That Funky Music by Wild Cherry. If that opening guitar riff doesn’t get your booty shaking, then something is wrong with you.

For my first recommendation, I give you a Shaping Opinion episode where host Tim O’Brien interviews Rob Parissi, the founder of the band and they talk about that classic song. They talk about how that song isn’t just for an old fogie like me as the song continues to hook new generations. 

So crank that song on your record player and show off your dance moves using the National Get Funky Day hashtag. 

Today’s guest is Johanna Nuding. Jo and I met the first day at my very first Podcast Movement conference in 2018. I think she was stalking me because I kept running into her for the next few days. Ok, that definitely is not true. But in a nice impromptu conversation, I learned more about cannabis than I had in my entire life before then. That’s because Jo is the host of the Casually Baked potcast, a great resource for the canna curious.

When I say I know nothing about marijuana, I’m not lying. So when I scanned Jo’s podcast, the first episode I went for was the 420 episode where she enlightened me to a lot of industry vocabulary. 

For our third recommendation, Jo says, and I quote, “my podcast episode rec happens to have the longest f’n name of all time – the podcast is On Purpose with Jay Shetty – The episode name is “The 1 Habit All Highly Effective People Live By & How to Implement It In Your Life” – I thought it was a nice companion piece to the national day I shared. Unquote.

For today’s Extra Hot Sauce, I will state that I have never inhaled but I’m actually not lying.

Come back on October 8th for something white and gooey.
