For anyone with a love of pop music nostalgia, these guys provide a biweekly escape from the day-to-day grind with a 60 to 90-minute podcast called "Past Tens - A Top 10 Time Machine". They cover the top 10 pop songs from the current week from a prior year, as determined by Billboard Magazine. Milt Wolfe and David Yas provide plenty of factoids, rumors and details about the artists, the songs, and the era. And. . .AND. . .I had the privilege of guesting on an episode during the final 20 minutes of the pod. You can hear my voice starting around the one-hour mark at this link, or you can download the podcast from Apple, Spotify, Stitcher and any other podcast program you use: https://www.timemachinepod.com/1988-def-tunes-sure-hits-the-rise-of-richard-marxism/ - this was not my favorite year for music, but we did what we could to salvage a cheesy top 10!

I am not sure this is helping me wind down at night, but I seem to need a fix of 20 minutes of Twitter toward the end of each day. Entertaining follow is @Super70sSports - very irreverent!
If you have a daughter between the ages of 10 and 18, I encourage you to try to get her on a recreational volleyball team. It's easily one of the most entertaining sports for parents to watch!
With the luxury of working from home a few days a week, I am trying to take at least 15 minutes in the middle of the day to sit in the sun, however warm or cold it is here in the northeastern US
