S3 E41 The Latest in Cosmetic Work for Guys with Kris Venezia - Part Two

This year's Sweeps Period concludes with the 2nd Part of my conversation with Kris Venezia about what is new in the areas of cosmetic work available for guys.

This is not a suggestion or endorsement for you to run out and get cosmetic work, but for many older guys, especially those who have suffered from the effects of HIV and the powerful drugs that are taken to keep it at bay, this information is important. With some, it could even be life-saving, as the depression and isolation people often feel can take its toll on the psyche.

In this second half, we discuss Cool Sculpting, Gastric Bypass and Hair Pieces (and those in Hollywood that wear them!) So sit back and enjoy this insider's look at the world of cosmetic work.

** This Sunday, September 30, 2018, is International Podcast Day and will be the announcement of the Winners of the 13th Annual People's Choice Podcast Awards. I am Nominated for 2 Podcast Awards: The LGBTQ Podcast Award and the Mature Podcast Award. Please tune-in LIVE on Sunday at 8:00 pm Eastern Time (5:00 pm Pacific Time) for the Announcement of the Winners. Go to to view the Awards LIVE. Thanks !!! **

S3 E40 Self-Doubt vs. Confidence - Impostor Syndrome

At the request of a listener from British Columbia, Canada regarding his self-doubt as he takes a new position running a sports team, we look at two self-esteem philosophies: The Peter Principle and Impostor Syndrome. Now while these theories can be viewed as a negative source of esteem, when coupled with a more applicable and positive method of coping with self-esteem that we talk about in the second half of today's episode, we can assess our self-doubt easier when looking at this subject from various points of view. The episode concludes with a basic tenant of success that we can all apply in times of indecision and uncertainty.

A Vintage TV Trivia Question is posed at the start of the show and the answer is given in the concluding minutes of the podcast.

Thanks so much for joining me today !

S3 E39 Getting Outside Yourself

This serious episode is the second half of my series on Depression that started with the episode 'Depression: Emotional Eating'. Today I tell you about the serious danger that I was in due to depression after my parent's deaths. I discuss how my depression first surfaced, plans I had made to take my own life and treatment that I sought out to deal with my issues of grief.  But most importantly, I talk about revelations I had during this process that allowed me to view the world in a different way, that ultimately has brought me to the better place I am in these last 20 years or so.

This episode is my personal experiences and opinions. Do not view this as any kind of therapy or professional guidance. If you feel you are depressed or if you ever have suicidal thoughts, please seek out professional help. I have been able to overcome my grief and relationship issues only through professional therapy and prescribed medications. This show is only my personal opinions.

S3 E38 The Latest in Cosmetic Work for Guys with Kris Venezia - Part One

In today's Sweeps Period episode, I think everyone will find this fascinating. Kris Venezia (from 'The Almost Transition' episode) returns to discuss all the current treatments available for guys who wish to look their best as they age.

Even if you have no interest in having Cosmetic Work done, I think you will find it very interesting.

We talk about Kris' history of Cosmetic Work, we also discuss Fillers, Laser Hair and Spot Removal, Cool Sculpting, how to tell if you might need some Hairline Restoration, and we even touch upon Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump.

This is Part One of a Two Part episode due to the length of the interview. Part Two of this show will air in three weeks. I will do two other episodes first, for those not interested in this subject.
