Wild Times with Susan Maletta

Comedy podcast including personal development themes and challenges, guest interviews, personal stories, Shots n' Crafts parties, and wild times and discussions. Sometimes rants. The philosophy and motto of this podcast is Work Hard/Play Hard. Get successful so you can reward yourself with wild times, baby. This podcast is geared towards other comedians, aspiring comedians & podcasters, and the general public (non-comedians who love comedy). I also swear a lot so you'll have to get over that. I temper it with eloquent speaking and useful information, though, so there's that.. love me or leave me. Comedian Bio: Susan Maletta is a Silicon Valley-based comedian who creates an instant connection with her audience that delights the spirit yet can sometimes pollute the mind. This corporate run-away, divorce survivor, and single parent fires off her relatable insights in a high-energy, charismatic performance that is sure to entertain and amuse any audience. Susan Maletta has appeared on Nick-at-Nite’s America’s Funniest Mom 3 and was featured in the documentary film, "Comedy ’Aint for the Money", and on Hulu. She won 1st place in the Tommy T's Comedy Club comedy contest and 2nd place in Rooster T. Feathers Comedy Club's annual competition. She has also done radio and podcasting for many years, interviewing hundreds of Bay Area comedians including Robin Williams.

Keep creating stuff. I am not doing well with this challenge. Oh well. Let's keep trying! This weekend I am dedicated to creating content (meaning, I am going to write jokes).

Aug 29, 2019

I talk about a dead guy who is helping to motivate me with his old seminars on YouTube. He is a master at Neurolinguistic programming (NLP). Wait, don't go. 

He's an excellent motivational speaker who has been dead for ten years, yet I listen to him and he helps me.

I will summarize some of his points for you and make some recommendations on how to be happy.

(Just fyi there is a slight pause before the recording starts that I failed to edit out.) You're probably thinking...what does content creation have to do with Wild Times?

If you work hard to create something, you get to reward yourself with wild times (fun, adventure, going out, laughing, dancing, and cutting loose).

The focus is STILL on happiness, health, and productivity, with the current, narrower focus being on using our creativity, whether it lays dormant or is springing forth actively.

Join me in my process of developing the content development habit. Doing this podcast daily is a start for me. Writing new comedy material daily is the goal, and getting clips of my comedy to send to bookers. Busting through creative blocks. LET'S DO IT! 

Oh, and plan a wild time for yourself (in whatever way you want) for your next day off. Never have a day off? Quit. Unless you LOVE working, then fine. Still take some time off, though. Write down what you can do that is SOMEWHAT WILD (not mild).

This will give you something pleasurable to look forward to. Yes. It could be sex. Plan your sex. Planned sex sucks, but do it if you have to.

I also offer podcasting tips in this episode and recommend a good video on youtube that I found helpful.

For the content challenge, I discuss several things I am going to do for creating stuff that might inspire you. 

Equipment I am using to podcast:

Host your own Paint Night or Craft night or Game Night or Podcast table setup:

Parties are fun, aren't they? Have one on the weekend once and awhile and host the fun for your friends and/or family or co-workers.

Paint nights are great for team-building and relaxing fun. 

Do it, homey.

This was recorded earlier today. I finally used my good microphone! The sound should be much better than previous episodes. Today I vent my frustrations about why I hate recording myself and making clips.

Join me in planning out content development. Plan to write or draw or paint or cook or record or decorate or perform or grow or build something or make a video (or make ANYTHING) just to start being creative and feel what that feels like. Impress yourself by producing some content every day. What do you like to make?

Book recommendation -- Creativity: The Psychology of Discovery and Invention.

Let’s drop our screen time down and increase our creative output. The focus for the next two weeks is less consumption (like of entertainment or social media or food or drinking) and more production.

What can you create today? Jokes? A podcast? A video series? Music? Prepared meals for your family? A new deck on your house? A product to sell? What can you make? What can you produce? Decide and then do that for 14 days. I’ll be checking in on your (and my) progress. This will be good for us. Join me.

Aug 24, 2019

Join us for a Wild Times party podcast where we do shots n’ crafts! We play the drinking game “shot roulette” and paint lovely sunflowers.

This podcast gets cut off at some random point, my bad.. we should have been the ones who were cut off.

Aug 24, 2019

Don’t let the weekend escape you too quickly! Strategically plan your day to not waste precious time on things like social media, arguing, putting yourself in traffic, and wasting time in busy stores during busy hours.

Stop being one of the sheep and be a leader.

Stop fucking around and plan your day out so that you can stop complaining you don’t have time to fulfill your dreams. Got it? Love you.

Happy Friday! Short podcast today. (And maybe not the best one either. I take you on my drive to the vet. I apologize for occasional navigation interruptions and audio issues!)

Tonight we do another, better, wilder podcast and I will have special guest comedians. We will be using actual good microphones, I promise.

For now, let’s plan our day and touch base. How is your planning going? This is Day 13 of the 2-week success planning challenge. Tomorrow is the last one and then on to the next challenge! Join me and remember, if you fail to plan - you plan to fail. Let’s plan a successful day. And let’s make sure to have some fun. I’m not kidding. 

Aug 22, 2019

Plan your day with me as I drive to the hospital and curse everyone out in traffic. Topics include:

- How to calm the mind when fearful or anxious 

- How to resolve/replace negative self-talk 

- Making sure you plan something to look forward to

Join me.

Positive mindset development through self-awareness, daily planning, and finding the humor in all of this shit. Today’s focus is on the power that we all have to choose our own thoughts, feelings, actions, and reactions. Let’s decide how we are going to feel today and let’s make it happy, for starters...

Hear me blab about my long To Do list and also plan my health-related corrective action plan. Join me and write out a list of things you need to accomplish today to feel happy, healthy, and productive. It will help keep you focused on your highest priorities, which in my case, is my health. Health should also be your highest priority so go to the goddamned dentist already, will ya?

Aug 19, 2019

I’m on the mend due to distractions even though I have too many distractions. Plan your day with me as we continue to prioritize our health and happiness and progress! Let’s keep going.

What can you create today that leads to your happiness and/or someone else’s happiness? 

 

Aug 18, 2019

Surviving the loss of my beloved cat, surviving my emotions and stress, and generally surviving the weekend. In this episode, we continue where we left off—planning self-care, happiness, and progress towards our goals (in that order). Join me in finding the humor in all of this shit.

A few topics include:

  • What helps me deal with loss, stress, or anxiety (recommendations)
  • Insight into my personal struggles  
  • How to learn to laugh at yourself and the world, or to just find laughter daily in general for healing and happiness 

For you audiophiles—yeah I know the sound is a little shitty at first (it improves slightly). I also have asthma and will be getting an inhaler so fuck off. :). I’ll use my good mic for the next one. 

Oh and here’s the link to that white noise machine I told you about:

I tried to not cry on the podcast today but I failed.

Join me as I try to stick to doing a daily podcast while coping with my immense grief over my cat’s death and try to be at work and function.

Also join me in my daily quest to plan my highest priorities every day and make progress towards success and happiness.

It’s not always easy. In fact, it’s hard. I will try to find the humor.
