Griddlesode #30: The Smudge

In this Griddlesode, we play some listener feedback, congratulate listener David from Southern California for solving the anagram in Griddlesode #29, and then Ron tells a story about the things in life that we take for granted.

On this Griddlesode, we featured in order of appearance:

  • “Your Eyes” by: Last Page First
  • “Looking Back” by: Sweet Crystal
  • “The Dudes in the Car” by: Vincent Van Go Go
  • “The Marrionette” by: Two Star Symphony
  • “Meant To Be” by: Callaghan

Due to the demise of The Podsafe Music Network/Mevio, we’ve removed all of the broken links and have attempted to replace them with direct links to the artist’s properties. If you are the artist and would like us to update these links, please contact us at griddlecakes*at*


  1. Oh, Ron, my friend. Re-arrange a few office visits (and your unique reaction to the needle) and that’s my story from about a year and a half ago.
    The one thing you didn’t mention was the special after-effect of that dye they inject into your system. But, that’s another story.

  2. Ah yes…the “after-effect.” How could I forget THAT!

    Did you try to see if it glowed in the dark?

    Ron,I’m very happy that your trials concluded on an up note. I’m sure all of you listeners see eye-to-eye on that.

  5. Wow! That really scared me! All through the show, I was afraid you would lose your eye! All I could think was,”I thought I was getting to know this guy, but I don’t know something as simple as whether he has both his eyes!?!” Well just goes to show that you can’t think that you know everything about someone right off the bat. Love your show!

  6. Hi Ron,
    This is my favorite Griddle Cakes Pod Cast so far. Not only for the humor but also because I can identify with almost every part of the story. I also know how it feels to know life can change at the blink of an eye. I also know the frustration of going from doctor to doctor and still not knowing what’s wrong . Being the youngest person in the waiting room and I happen to work in a Nursing home.
