Rough Road Ahead (Ep. 023)
Listen to Episode 23 on YouTube. It’s easier than listening on podcast apps.
In this episode, host Jay Douglas revisits historian Kevin Kirbitz’s story about the rise-fall-repeat cycle that was the life of David Dunbar Buick. That’s right, like Henry Ford, the Buick automobile was named after its inventor. While Ford remains an icon of American industrialism, Buick is a virtual unknown. Here’s why. It’s another Out Of My Mind Short Story.

Out Of My Mind is on YouTube
Forget about fiddling around with podcast apps and players that don’t work when you want to listen to Out Of My Mind. We’ve moved all our episodes to YouTube. Don’t worry. We haven’t gone Hollywood, and you won’t have to look at Jay’s face for 17 minutes a week. It’s the same podcast you’ll find on iTunes but with a static picture slapped on it so YouTube thinks it’s a video.
Go to outofmymindpodcastonyoutube.com, pick what you want to listen to and enjoy.
Not only does listening on YouTube take fewer steps, but a single click on the Read Show Notes banner at the beginning and end of each show will take you right to the show notes. No more working your way through the website. In the coming weeks, we’ll post bonus interviews and comments from guests you won’t find anywhere else online. And we’ll take popular interviews and features and put them in their own videos so you can listen to them without having to listen to the entire program (do not tell Jay about this).
If you have a Google account (and, honestly, who doesn’t), you can subscribe on YouTube and receive a notification whenever we post something new. You can also leave comments about the show right there while you’re listening. We think listening to Out Of My Mind on YouTube will be a more pleasant experience for you. Let us know if we’re right or what we can do to make it better.

Support Your Favorite Podcast
Podcasts live or die on downloads. They’re the Nielsen ratings of the business. The more downloads we get the better our chances of attracting sponsors. And sponsors mean we’ll be able to go more places and do more things in our hunt for the essential, non-essential and curiously-essential information we uncover each week. Oh, and we’ll also be able to give way decent thank you gifts for such things as using your comments on the air. So, if you enjoy the show, here are some ways you can help us right now:
- like our page on Facebook;
- subscribe to the show;
- leave a review on iTunes;
- tell your friends about the show, ask them to subscribe and listen and to tell their friends to subscribe and listen.
The economics of podcasting require shows like Out Of My Mind to have at least 200 downloads every day to attract a sponsor, and I can tell you we’re not even close. But with your help we will be. Thanks for supporting the launch of our little program and thanks for helping us grow.
