American Cliche FINAL EPISODES: 3 of 4

2011-07-06 :: American Cliche | Scott Parent

We’re in the home stretch now. It feels weird to have only one more episode left in a such a long series. How many people can say they’ve done almost 260 episodes of anything? I didn’t think I had it in me. Following the taping of this episode I got confirmation from Jason that we [...]…

Length: 27s

This week we’re onto episode number two of the remaining four. There’s a lot of pressure to create something “special,” but the reality is that I’m doing what I’ve always done – rambling on about things that I find interesting on any given week. This week I’m running the gamut from self-healing and the Foo [...]…

I’m back – well, at last for four more episodes. It felt good to get behind the mic again and chat with you all. I hope that we can bring some closure to this entity we’ve built that defies classification. Thanks for coming along on for the ride! On the show: * Emma Talks About [...]…

American Cliche TV: I’ve Got a Plan (Continued)

2011-06-10

I thought a lot about the blog post I wrote yesterday and I felt like I wanted to expand on it in a more personal and direct way. Video is the best way I could think of to do that.…

American Cliche #256

2011-02-16 :: American Cliche | Scott Parent

I’m typing this from the warm dry confines of my office in Santa Barbara. It’s been sort of a gloomy week here, but with all the crazy winter weather happening around the country, I shouldn’t complain. One thing I’ve been thinking all week was a comment left by Jeff Shaw on last week’s episode. I’ve [...]…

2011-02-07 :: American Cliche | Scott Parent

This episode comes as sort of a surprise to me. I wrote last week that we didn’t have a sponsor, then overnight I got word of a limited engagement with our friend Leonard Peikoff and here we are. Let’s be clear, this sponsorship only runs until the end of February, so we still have some [...]…

This episode is the last planned show for 2010. It’s time get the holiday shopping done, finish up end-of-year work projects and get Emma ready to spend Christmas with my family back in New Hampshire. It’s been an interesting year and I’m looking forward to seeing what 2011 has in store for us all. Happy [...]…

2010-12-02 :: American Cliche | Scott Parent

This week the world is in a frenzy over WikiLeaks. While I get that there is a lot of embarrassing shit being released about what foreign leaders have said about each other, I don’t see the big deal. Unless our blueprint for war has been published or the codes for our nuclear arsenal have been [...]…

This week I wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving. Yes, I realize that it is an American holiday and that almost 40% of you listen from outside the U.S. That said, I invite you to share in the spirit. We all have things we are thankful for – even in difficult times. Over the [...]…

Lots of great feedback this week from you guys about Episode #250. I didn’t know when I recorded the episode that so many of you would parallel it to the events in your own lives over the last five years. I got emails from people telling me about a milestone in their life that corresponded [...]…

2010-11-10 :: American Cliche | Scott Parent

Prepping this show was an unexpected experience for me. Someone I respect had given me the idea to make this episode a soundtrack journey of my life over the last five and a half years. I knew immediately it was the right approach. As I started to go back through old shows notes and blog [...]…

Length: 25s

I realize that every news outlet in the U.S. has been dissecting the election results for the last 24 hours – and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. That said, I’m going to pile-on and weigh in a bit on what I think some of it means for our leadership in the [...]…

We’re less than a week away from elections – I should be focusing 100% of my effort on that, right? Nope. I’m actually staying away from politics this week (mostly). I’ve said everything I can say to you. My hope is that you go to the polls with a clear head and vote for the [...]…

2010-10-20 :: American Cliche | Scott Parent

This week we continue to talk about clueless people dominating our headlines. Whether you’re talking about politicians or NFL players, some people just don’t have a firm grip on the reality of their situation. In this episode of American Cliche, we’re exploring that in a bit more depth. We’re also talking about the Obama Administration’s [...]…

2010-10-08 :: American Cliche | Scott Parent

This week I spent most of the show talking about Christine O’Donnell and the Tea Party. Frankly, I’m pretty scared about the prospect of someone like this bumbling her way into a seat on the senate. She hasn’t been willing to do interviews – all we really know about her are some of the clips [...]…

Have you guys been following the controversy around Katy Perry’s appearance on Sesame Street? I don’t understand what the fuss is about. Children see more skin on a public beach. Why aren’t we outraged over all the violence on TV that kids watch? Oh, and isn’t it a double standard that the monsters on Sesame [...]…

Have you ever had a week where the days melted together and you often found yourself staring at a to-do list that you thought you’d never get to the end of? Yeah, me too. In addition to being swamped with client work, I’m trying to spend as much time with Emma as I can while [...]…

Now that Labor Day has signaled the official end of summer, it’s time to put our heads down and focus on work – at least it is for me. The next couple of weeks are going to be extremely busy with client projects, but hey, in this economy I think we’re all happy to have [...]…

As the summer rolls to a close with the impending Labor Day Weekend upon us, I’m reminded of how much life changes from season to season. I think about how different my life was last summer compared to this one. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, just part of my natural evolution. So as you [...]…

This week I’m doing something a bit different on the show. I’m in a musical mood, so I’m sharing some of my recent musical finds with you. Sometimes you’ve gotta shake things up a bit to keep it fresh. For those of you that NEED your dose of political snarkiness – fear not – I’ve [...]…

I’m late again producing a new show. I apologize for that. This week has been incredibly busy and saw a lot of unexpected things surface. Last minute client work and a sick child sidelined me for longer than I had hoped. But that’s life right? Things come up and you deal with them. Tomorrow I [...]…

American Cliche #239 – Viva La Fiesta!

2010-08-04 :: American Cliche | Scott Parent
Length: 25s

I’ve talked about Fiesta in Santa Barbara many times on this show. Officially, it’s a celebration of the city’s Spanish heritage. Unofficially, it’s a five day party throughout downtown. Last night I had a pre-Fiesta kickoff with some good friends at Arigato Sushi and the Press Room. Tonight, I’m heading to the rooftop of the [...]…

I had an amazing day this past Saturday. I spent the afternoon at the beach in Santa Barbara with my friend Manny at the California Wine Festival. The ocean was 40 feet away on one side, and the mountains and palm trees were on the other. Besides the amazing weather, there was great wine, food [...]…
