GrowCast Episode 4: How to Grow Hydroponic Weed

  In Which The Stoner Mom Goes on a Non-Related Tangent *Note: Since the day my husband decided he was going to start growing hydro, he has annoyingly sung Lana del Rey’s “Brooklyn Baby” to me at random times throughout the day. For like, months now. MONTHS!!! And, since he outlines the show notes for his podcast but I actually write them, he had of course inserted his dumb joke/reference into today’s post. I’m taking it out, and combating his terrible impersonation with listening to dance mixes of our queen of sadness. Here’s one I love, queued up to...

How to Grow Weed

On Podcasting My husband likes to talk. A lot. He’s one of those extroverted, bold, constantly yakking, tapping, bobbing, noise-making people. I am NOT one of those people. Other than my preference for loud music, I am a virtually silent person. I appear beside people alone in rooms. Never has this been clearer than our first few attempts at podcasting. See we’re planning on having two podcasts; The Stoner Mom Podcast, hosted by me, and more about the stuff I write about. David’s GrowCast is about how to grow weed, something I don’t really know jack about. So we...
