It’s the first episode of Made My Day. The first podcast episode I’ve recorded in over a year.
You just made my day by downloading and listening. Thanks!
This episode we introduce the show’s concept and talking a little about why it’s important to me personally. Then banging through a week’s worth of things that made each day worthwhile including: Milli Vanilli, Ceiling Fan pull chains, typing lessons, 1.5 megapixel photos from 2000, and the horror of pants dropping on fans.
Then we read the MMD’s from some early bird pre-listeners and give a very special thank you to three important people: Janusz S., Ana S. and Tamara S. Without their monthly donations every show on the network would have been unavailable.
Gravity a flash comic by Hannah Unkrich – A wonderful explanation of how it feels to be sick… and then ostracized on top of that. I really like the meds angle. The more people share about this Depression thing the better.
Peter’s Online Typing Course – We’re teaching our 8 and 5 year old how to type… cause they want to be able to type in Minecraft. This is what I’m using. It’s a great resource for teaching anyone how to type. I’m using it to review my numbers and symbols. Did I mention everything is free?

The Made My Day Podcast (or MMDCast for short) is a positive thinking podcast on the NLCast Network of podcasts featuring your host, me, James Kennison. On this show we talk about things that make my day…. and yours.
This show is important because I am in recovery from a dark bout with depression… and there was a large period of time where I couldn’t feel anything good much less think anything good. I was literally unable to enjoy anything.
I stumbled upon this quote while looking for helpful quotes on depression:
“…anything that makes you feel has to the most important thing in your life, because it’s the only thing that can save you.” – Siobhan Fahey
I don’t know who Siobhan Fahey is… but all Truth is God’s Truth. So, because I’ve had so many bad days, I’m going to help myself by focusing on the things that make each day worthwhile. The little things that give each day value. They’re little, tiny, and wonderful. They’re the things that make me feel. I want to share them with you.
That being said, though this show will be of benefit for the depressed person, it is not a show for depressed persons only. Everyone will benefit from noticing and appreciating the little miracles in our lives that are so easily taken for granted.
