Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #4: Focus on Important Things

No comments:
The political games are back in full force and it's time to up everyone's "chill pill" prescriptions. While voices on the right (and some closer to the middle) are mounting their especially tall equines about the latest gaffe and sound byte, there are some major items that need to be discussed. We're going to look at some of those articles in this episode and try to ignore the honey-pot activities that seem to be captivating the mainstream.

 Articles for this episode:
Other articles that could have been included in the list tonight but didn't make the cut due to time constraints:

Well, it seems that of my articles we didn't have a whole lot of noise. It was an energetic conversation to say the least!

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #2: Serious Ponderings and Noise

No comments:
As we continue the transition into the new podcast, we take an episode to once again try and vet the important articles from those that are just so much more frothing at the mouth. To assist with this process we've got articles from both sides and are going to work on better identifying distinguishing characteristics during the show.

We are still working on the site and my own schedule has not lent itself to implementing comprehensive site changes yet. Thank you again for your patience as we make the shift to the new show. Articles for this episode:

Episode 344: Your Policy is Showing

No comments:
I'm not sure if we made our point tonight or not. We definitely highlighted some policies that are showing and even brought up the concept of action in Iraq as a way to distract the media from domestic news. That said, there were a few odd tangent circles that might make folks look at certain concepts from a different angle.

Two shout-outs from this episode. First, to Joesf a mote in the eye award for playing devil's advocate so perfectly on the college age free speech concept. Also, a mention of Rat Nation which is a fun blog I've started reading. They are where I saw the article about the Tiny House movement mentioned in this episode.

Articles for Episode 344: Your Policy is Showing

No comments:
Every now and then we have to take a break from questioning the intelligence or sanity of various positions and point out the policy, or at least the perception of policy, that is laid out in the news. The democrats have done a fine job showing us where their priorities lie and in this episode we're going to look at those. Articles for this episode:

Articles for Episode 340: No Need for Fiction

No comments:
Over the past week I've found a number of parody or satire articles that made their way to Facebook and/or Twitter as if they were true stories. In this episode we're going to look at articles that outline why we don't need our blood pressure raised by those parodies, real news is bad enough!

Something interesting, in last week's episode we has a number of visitors in Second Life that meant to bring more disruption than discussion. Unfortunately they partially succeeded, as they brought the sim down. In doing so, however, they failed to recognize that their presence increased the traffic to the site, the podcast and the sim. Our numbers have hit new highs and this week I was notified that our Twitter feed was added to the "Top Political Brains" list at Ticckle.com which apparently is an opinion conversation site.

Articles for this episode:
These extra articles are also sources of ire for a variety of reasons.  There's more after the break...

Episode 327: They're Not Even Trying

At this point you'd have to be either brainwashed or blind not to see that our elected and appointed officials are working the system. In this episode we look at several examples where the pandering is completely obvious.

Articles for Episode 326: Talking About Justice

No comments:
There are times when justice is served and times when it is abused. In this episode we are going to be looking at both of these scenarios tonight including a case of poetic justice that cannot be missed.

Sadly, this will be our last episode on the Boost Radio Network.  I want to thank the station for their support and the opportunity to learn more about both the radio industry as a whole and content placement concepts as a whole.  We will continue to play on the Red State Talk Radio network and be available, as always, in podcast form.

Not a lot of articles for this week but some that didn't make the main list. Here are the rest

Episode 324: Shameful Actions

No comments:
This was a fun episode! It was interesting to see the take that different audience members had on the t-shirt story as well as the whistleblower concept. Also, there's a shocker in this one where I actually agree with Senator Gillibrand!

Personal issues on my side kept me from posting until today. As I wrap up my MBA I may be behind on posting but the recordings are definitely being made.

As we look through the articles this week we see examples of shameful, or at least what should be considered it, activity on a lot of different fronts. We're going to discuss these in this episode.

Episode 316: Myth Busting

No comments:
This turned out to be one of those episodes where working the title into the conversation really didn't work out so well. That's okay because there was plenty to talk about and it was generally on-topic. No big surprise that we didn't make it through all of the articles for this week which means there's always a chance they will be brought up further down the line.

We are now a part of the Boost Radio Network! The fundraising goal for the first quarter was met but there is still a long way to go to cover the entire year.

Articles for Episode 316: Myth Busting

No comments:
There are historical inaccuracies that get repeated so often that they become accepted as truths. In this episode we look at a number of them that span the political gamut from the NSA to poverty to jobs to climate change and even the economy.

Thanks to your support, this episode will be our first to air on the Boost Radio Network! We will be playing from 7-8pm on Wednesday nights and look forward to a strong working relationship with the hosts. This does not mean that our fundraising campaign is done though, as we still have three more quarters to fully fund. If you would like to donate use the link on the right hand side of the site.
