Wild Times with Susan Maletta

Comedic, improvisational monologue (with occasional guests) focused on personal development themes and challenges such as finding happiness in this fleeting life and overcoming adversity and depression. The philosophy of this podcast is Work Hard, Party Harder and the purpose is to help others find success and happiness. Get successful so you can be happier and reward yourself with fun and wild times, baby. I try to teach you lessons that I have learned in my life, learned the hard way, or researched to save you the time and hassle. The things I teach you are things I'm interested in learning more about, so we are in this together, bud. I make information accessible through humor and my ability to speak or relate to any type of person... EXCEPT the easily offended. Please f u c k off now, trust me. I can't be bothered with weak people. Anyway, I'm on a journey of personal and professional growth, and I hope you join me on the journey and get some benefit from it. At a minimum, you will laugh with me (or AT me ... just over there judgin' me... that's fine too) and have a fine and dandy time doing so. At the maximum, we will learn a lot together, inspire and motivate each other, and ultimately fall in love with each other. Yes. We will. 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 fuck the fuck off, like I said... don't be one of those idiots who believes that people who swear lack creativity, intelligence, or an extensive vocabulary. You clearly haven't communicated with me or the rest of the modern world. I say that in love. This is also a comedy podcast, just sayin'... WARNING: Many times I speak on sexually explicit topics with reckless abandon so while you may be disturbed, you WILL be excited and entertained. This is NSFW. Thank you for joining me!

Happy New Year!

This is the start of a multi-part review of a great little audio book I listened to called "Self-discipline--Develop daily habits to program your mind, build mental toughness, self-confidence, and will-power."

I plan to use the strategies I picked up in this book for putting my new year's resolutions into action and I suggest you do the same!

Or not! Just make sure you have some wild times this year, homie.







Oct 18, 2021

I'm back to share another mixed-bag of an online article for you on five habits for successfully generating content.

There are some very useful tips. One time your Dad said he was just going to give me the tip...

Then your step-brother came along.

Hi Covid Cocks,

I found a good, short article (on, no author given to give credit to) that gave some great information on how to create great internet content. 

Let's get in the habit of daily content creation, regardless of your profession. Content is anything you can create for either you or a customer, or any damn person or PET you want to!

Let us never limit ourselves. Let's develop great habits daily and try to create one piece of content every day!

Love you, Covid Breath..

I read you 8 strategies for coping with social isolation and, during this, you'll find yourself coping with my constant interruptions as I insult your parents' genitalia.

I have a problem. 

Feb 2, 2021

Are you the owner of a lonely fart? Here are some coping strategies, some of which I agree with.

I will continue talking about issues affecting depression and anxiety in the next few podcasts.

Dec 8, 2020

Do you think the worst shit is always going to happen? 

...Especially lately?

I found a good article on 5 ways to stop catastrophizing (thinking the worst is going to happen). Let's keep on working on controlling our negative thoughts.

At the end of this, I offer my personal tips on getting into a good mindset. It's a nightly list that I've been writing down every night before I go to sleep.

Join me!

We will get through this pandemic together! 

Socially-distant hugs and masked kisses,




Nov 24, 2020

Another pandemicast on how to improve and feel better! Wooo! Join me as I learn how to stop being such a bitch and think about positive things more often. 

It is probably a good idea to practice learning how to feel good.

It will likely help us and those around us, just sayin'...

IT'S EPISODE 69 y'all! 

Here are some tips for coping with stress, anxiety, and depression during the hectic, fucked up, pandemic, Covidy holiday season!

Love you. Hang in there. We can do this! You are not alone!




Nov 12, 2020

I read an article about dealing with resentment and, as usual, offer my three or four cents.

"Why Resentment Lasts and How to Defeat It"

This is a good one for the upcoming fun Pandemic holiday season. 

Nov 5, 2020

Well...I TRY to read an article on short-term and long-term strategies on coping and managing anxiety attacks... but of course end up interjecting about six million fuckin' times and throw the whole thing off with my lack of focus.

I drank too much coffee then found out that coffee causes anxiety! Lol f u c K!

I should not do podcasts in the morning.

Try to cope with this podcast.

This is my intro to tonight's Halloween show, which is going to be another FB live  "Shots n' Crafts" episode with my roommate, Iris. I also talk about random shit going on with me and in the world.

Find out who I voted for! hee hee!

Oh and yes, I know that I mispronounced “nihilism”.

Nihilists do not care because nothing matters.

So have fun! And let’s get wild.

Jun 7, 2020

Join my housemate, comedian Iris Benson, and me as we take shots and do crafts. Listen as we engage our social media followers on our separate phones while mayhem ensues.

Jun 6, 2020

First I read an article by Lena Firestone called "Being Alone: The Pros and Cons of Time Alone" then offer my own insights on self-isolation during the quarantine and being ok with alone time in general.

Stay tuned-- I'm going to post the party podcast that we did last month (my housemate and I) called Shots and Crafts. Look for that post soon.

How to relieve anxiety and stress and become mentally strong during this crazy-ass time.

Mar 17, 2020

Laughter is contagious too so... let's do this!

Hey I've missed you! Let's chat and catch up! I'll tell you how I'm doing amid the apocalypse as I drive on the freeways during the lock-down "shelter-in-place" mandate that has gone into effect!

I went on a crazy mission. Join me.

Do you know I forgot it's St. Patrick's Day? It's more like St. Virus's day...shit...

These are the clouds I saw on the drive that weirded me out:

Feb 19, 2020

Topics include:

  • Game-changing life lessons I learned when I read and studied the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
  • How I want to change some of my bad habits and turn them into creative pursuits
  • Resisting the mind's urge to focus and ruminate on negative or catastrophic thoughts
  • How we can choose our thoughts, actions, and re-actions
  • Homework for you to start not giving a fuck what people think and start escaping the comfort zone. You have to give less fucks. Save all the fucks for yourself.

    Stop giving three sheets of shitcake and eat a whole big, six-layer ice-cream cake yourself. Time to get out of our comfort zones. Let's focus on what matters -- not what doesn't.

    What DOESN'T matter, is what people think of you (unless it's your boss or your kids).
Feb 11, 2020

Just venting and rambling about what's been going on with me. I'm in here cussing like a sailor...and I sound all severe..but yeah.. business as usual. Not a huge amount of value to add in this one.

I give three choices for my next challenge and could use your feedback on which one to do! Let me know on my facebook page.

Also, I'm performing tonight in Oakland so come on out!

Town Business (a HellaFunny production)
Comedy Night at 8 pm, Tues., Feb. 11

TGIF! Relax and party with me and let's let these positive affirmations for self-love by Louise Hay sink right into our negative brains.

(There are some technical audio difficulties in the beginning but they get worked out so just get through it.)

Let's get wild and love ourselves.

Jan 29, 2020

I read an article on how to overcome self-doubt and I talk about my obsession with death-related subjects like this Kobe helicopter crash that's got me all freaked out about aviation again.

Thank you for joining me and Happy Hump Day, ya horny, humpin' bastards!


Jan 21, 2020

I get on a roll about roller derby, muse about sexual matters, finish reading Leo's damn article, and talk about other personal matters. 

We keep talking about self-confidence because it helps us in life (personally and professionally) to develop the habit of building, feeling, and expressing confidence.

..and I know I made a mistake with the Walt Disney quote. There were only 4 C’s because he said confident twice. 

Thanks for joining me, Fuckface..

Jan 14, 2020

This is a NSFW (Not Safe for Wimps) podcast. Sometimes I talk about your dad's little dick.

But mainly, I continue assessing a good list I found on ways to build our self-confidence. Your Dad should give it a listen. I sound slightly less crazy in this one (I think). I definitely sound less angry. I'm reading through the list of ways we can feel (or project) self-confidence and realizing that it's good to practice these items regularly. It really is a good list.

And of course, I interject raunchy and sexual humor throughout to keep it lively and wild.


Jan 12, 2020

Join me as I attempt to read an interesting and helpful article about self-confidence ....but get distracted and annoyed by the author's writing as I try to deliver his good points.

I get through almost half of the points made in the article, but talked and ranted so much that I'll now have to do a Part 2 on this one.

Enjoy your day and believe in yourself. I believe in you! Keep going! You got this. You can do this. 

I also sing you a couple songs by the Beach Boys to lighten our moods.


Jan 8, 2020

Welcome back, and here we are in the new year, still alive and kickin'. And in your mom's case, dickin'. Sorry that I took a week off but not sorry, because I took a good break to go down to LA and do some comedy. Now. On to what we are here for. 

Are you ready to believe in yourself in this new year and decade? The fact that you are checking out a podcast featuring personal development themes makes me already believe in YOU.

There is something in you that is at least curious about one or more of my little challenges here. So, I believe in you because I feel that you believe in you, even if you don't think so!

Join me as I read (and interject my commentary on) an article I found on self-belief that covers the basics and adds a few new perspectives as well.


Dec 29, 2019

Can you go stand in front of the mirror and say, "I love you, you sweet, sexy son-of-a-bitch”?


You might be suffering from low self-confidence and a lack of self-love.

If the thought of going to the mirror and looking yourself in the eyes and saying I love you makes you cringe... we have work to do.

(By the way...the sound is annoyingly loud/distorted at first in the podcast but mellows down and improves. I used a different recording method and it shows. Sorry.)

I'm in the same boat but in general, I tend to think I am a pretty confident person. That doesn't mean I don't still have work to do.

Not being able to look in the mirror and shower yourself with positive self-affirmations easily means that you might feel like you are not good enough, not attractive enough, haven't accomplished enough in life, aren't capable of doing enough due to whatever limitation (self-imposed or not), not making enough money, not a good enough parent, partner, son/daughter, sibling, friend, employee, leader, or can't be enough of what you think you are "supposed to be" or what your damn parents want you to be.

You might be consumed with guilt, grief, shame, or blame. Have you thought about that? There is a way out of these feelings! I promise. 

We are going to start working on this together. So come back.

I love you and I believe in you and I think you are fucking awesome.

I am your friend and coach now.
