As the producer of Mac & Gaydos this is my own unique, weird, wacky and, at times, warped look at the week’s seven biggest stories.

This week technical director of the Suns, Diamondbacks and Cardinals, Podcaster and all around swell funny guy Jarrett Carlen joins me.

There’s a HUGE Mega Millions jackpot brewing for Friday. Don’t worry, you’re not going to win, I am! Papow! No, honestly I probably won’t win but I will be playing though. I can’t even justify why I do this. My best explanation is it’s a ton of money and I’d love to have a piece of it. I don’t play when it’s $50 million or so though (which would also be MORE than enough cash). Am I alone?

Lots of people fell prey to identity theft last year. I know of one person who’s had issues with his credit card being messed with. I didn’t think this problem was nearly as bad as they say.

What’s even more disturbing is that about 10% of the people who do run into identity theft have problems for a month!

Worried you could be in the throngs of a midlife crisis? I’ve got some of the top signs. I don’t know about you but I’ve got enough problems in my life right now, luckily a midlife crisis isn’t one of them…yet. Stay tuned though.
