Genuinely Quirky Things

Hi :) My name is John-Michael Collins, but people know me either as John or Michael, you can also call me Phil or Misha if you really want to! My life thus far consists of real and quirky to plainly nonsensical experiences which I begin to explore through this therapeutic avenue I call a “vocal diary.” These personal stories will include ordinary to controversial topics and you will know what each episode is about before pressing play. If you want to sit back and listen to someone share their random life stories with the opportunity to learn something, this podcast is for you! I am not messing around when I say they are completely random, beyond the sky is the limit for topics to be covered. Come back each week for a new episode! I am an actor among other things, so please consider doing me a favor by heading to my website: www.johnmichaelcollins.com Best regards, John-Michael P.S. There is a silly comment at the end of each episode :p

24. I woke up in Atlanta / Let's talk about mold

Hello again :) Riley and I made it! Including backtracks we logged 3141 miles between Seattle and Atlanta. I am grateful for good friends who let you sleep in their home, eat their food, drink their water, use their wifis, watch their Netflix, pet their dog, etc. It’s been a rough week trying to micromanage finding a place to stay but I found one! Somehow finding the time to edit hadn’t been a huge issue on the road. GQT goes through transitions every week, like all of us, but I hope you find one or two things here. "To when I worked at Heuss" "To when I played shoe fire" "To when there is stress amongst chaos" DISCLOSURE: GOING ON TANGENTS MAY OR MAY NOT BE INVOLVED, THIS SHOW IS CONVERSATIONALLY TRUE TO HOW I SPEAK.

22. My fern Riley in the passenger seat / Musical ba-da-pas

Greetings from Idaho! Idaho? Why am I in Idaho? Getting from Washington to Georgia via car without driving through Idaho would take longer. I made it to Twin Falls safely though 😊 I only drank 32+ ounces of coffee and am still awake in the wee morning. Thank you for rocking and being you!

Episode 20! I had zero expectations of whether or not we would make it this far, thank you!
