Episode 335: Missing the Point

0 comments
Wow, give us a week off and a good topic and we come out swinging! This was an absolute blast of a podcast and we managed to get through some of the most interesting articles before I had to call time.

In this episode we discussed a number of different articles that had more than one point, regardless of how the author wanted things to be read. We worked hard not to miss them but have a listen and let us know if something fell through the cracks.

There are times when we start talking about something and discover that one or more of us missed the major point in an article. In this episode we are going to look at a number of articles and hope that the point is not missed, either by ourselves or others.

Things have stabilized around here and we should not have any surprise missing episodes moving forward. Thank you for your understanding last week, it really was unavoidable. Articles for this episode:

One of the cutest things I've heard was my then 4 year old nephew say, "can't want that!" He was talking about a bad thing happening and he had the perfect answer for it. In this episode we're going to look at a number of different articles that would bring out the same response.

As an administrative note, I'm working on changing the way show notes, articles and episode posts are presented here on the site. It may be more advantageous to go back to having a single post per week with both the links to the articles as well as the audio file itself. I'd like to get some feedback before implementing this change so please let me know what you think by emailing conservativepodcast@gmail.com. Thank you!

Episode 318: Fundamental Concepts

Even with the hardware failures and short notice on the article list, this episode went quite well!  We talked about a number of things including the Tea Party, the concept of social decay and even had an, "eye of the beholder" moment with one of the articles.  Definitely worth the listen!

Every now and then we have to look at some of the fundamental concepts around political ideologies and where they are being touted or hidden.

The show notes, however, are going to be delayed.  This is due to a hardware failure and loss of the prep-work that I normally do for a podcast.  Even with this setback the show will go on!  This post will be updated as I am able to rebuild that work and provide links for the episode.

Announcement: Expansion Opportunity

0 comments
During the last episode of the podcast I mentioned that there is an exciting opportunity available for the show.  We have been contacted by the folks over at Boost Radio Network.  This is a new internet only radio station that is launching in January 2014.  They are creating a network of shows that spans the spectrum, from politics to money to home improvement and more.

This opportunity has the potential to grow the audience in a number of different ways.  Our show will be run live during it's regular weekly broadcast.  We will still be distributing via TalkShoe, iTunes, Stitcher, the website and the Red State Talk Radio Network.  There is also the ability to use their interface which allows for live call-in participation.  Additionally there are potential advertiser opportunities based on the association with the network that will be a better deal for our show than what has been available in the past.

Unfortunately, participation in the network is not free.  Like many networks there is a charge for using the software and bandwidth.  I'm not going to go into the specifics for this, these fees are negotiated and contracted with each participating production.

This podcast has been a passionate but largely unfunded project for Ken and I up to this point.  This opportunity is game-changing but it is not something that we take lightly.  Our focus in going down this path is more about spreading our conservative message and influence and less about making any kind of return.  It's also not something that Ken and I can absorb so we are reaching out to our listening audience to help.  If you are interested in helping out, please continue reading.


Episode 300: Guns, Jobs and Money

We had an excellent time talking with Assemblywoman Jane Corwin from New York.  A large amount of the conversation was spent discussing the New York SAFE Act but several other topics were covered as well.  While we didn't touch a single one of the articles on the list, we definitely covered the subject material very thoroughly.  It's interesting to hear the situation from the viewpoint of someone that's involved in the process.

If you want to learn more about Assemblywoman Corwin you can visit her website at JaneCorwin.com. The show notes also includes a short biography.

Tonight we are joined by a special guest, Assemblywoman Jane Corwin. Mrs. Corwin will be talking with us tonight about a variety of issues including the New York SAFE Act, Jobs, the New York economy and more. Along with the interview there are a number of other items that I've included in the show notes. We may or may not get to them, it all depends on the interview and the conversation around it. Articles for this episode:


More about Jane Corwin:

Jane Lewis Corwin was elected to the New York State Assembly on November 4, 2008 and represents what is now the 144th Assembly District.

Jane is a proud full-time mother of three, Melanie, Kellie and Will, and, like any mother, she wants to give our children the best opportunity for a successful future in any endeavors they which to pursue. She continues to work tirelessly in representing the voice of her community in Albany so our children have those opportunities and are not forced to relocate due to a struggling economic and business climate.

Since being elected in 2008, Jane has stood firm in her message of fiscal conservatism, accountability for lawmakers, and focusing on growing our upstate economy by supporting small businesses.

Episode 299: Mind Your Own House Part 2

As promised, we continued going over the amendments proposed in Mark Levin's The Liberty Amendments. It's an interesting collection of history and suggestions for cementing the spirit of the founders back into the Constition. Again there wasn't one that every person on the call agreed with but the book brings out the way the country has changed substantially since its founding.

Be sure to be available for our 300th episode! We are going to be joined by Assemblywoman Jane Corwin for the show to talk about New York, Gun Control and what's going on to address the overreach that has happened in the state. It's going to be a special episode for a special milestone!

There's the phrase, "Mind Your Own House," which is typically uttered to someone that is too busy calling out the failings of another while their own situation isn't much better. We seem to be in that state in the US now. We are continuing the conversation around Mark Levin's proposed Liberty Amendments and some news stories that fit in neatly with his suggestions.

Episode 295: Progessive Infection

0 comments
Every week when I post a new episode I try to come up with a different way to say that it was a fun one. While this week is no different, it wasn't just fun it was also educational. Looking at the current activities and how they all represent symptoms of this Progressive infection that has been eating at the concepts of our Constitutional founding has been an eye-opening experience. We even have to admit that many of the political planks espoused by both parties are rife with the stain!

Something else that I do in every episode is explain how folks can participate. This will become even more important as we continue to look at this infection and expose it to the light of day. Considerate and civil discourse is needed in every episode and all are invited to participate! Even if you can't join in for our Sunday night recording sessions, take some time and share your thoughts, even if they are simply to agree with us.

I've been using my Audible subscription to listen to The Liberty Amendments by Mark Levin. They list not only the changes that Mr. Levin recommends but also the historical back-story for each one. This listening experience will have any jaw on the floor, both with where the country has gone and where politicians promise to take it. We'll actually be taking some time during upcoming episodes to discuss these proposals at length, so if you want to participate in them take advantage of an Audible credit and get the book now!

After my comment last week on the supposed good intentions of those proposing government action, I would be remiss in not talking about the opposite. This week we're going to talk about the counter to the concept of government intervention and discuss articles where the government has gone to lengths and depths that it was never intended to be found.

I've had a very eye-opening experience that I also wanted to share. As a part of my Audible subscription I've been listening to The Liberty Amendments by Mark Levin. In the book, he outlines Constitutional Amendments aimed at bringing the Federal government back into the shape originally considered by the Founding Fathers. More than that, he brings in Federalist and Anti-Federalist writings, court decisions, other historical backup and compares that to the actions of the government since it's founding.

More from the twitter feed this week.  There's actually other articles to be found there but I trimmed them down to a manageable gaggle for reading and commenting.

Episode 285: Addressing Growth

Quite the interesting discussion in this episode, first with Mike Garcar, Field Director for the Ohio College Republican Foundation and then with Fabian Story, a man with a lot of campaign experience under his own belt. Unfortunately Mike was not able to stay with us for the whole show and we hope he can join us again!

This was one of those episodes, however, where we didn't even make it into the opening article. This means that we'll need to take time during the week to talk about some of them.

As time marches on, one thing that has to be considered by any organization is how it can expand membership for the future. Tonight we have a special guest, Mike Garcar, Field Director for the Ohio College Republican Federation. We'll be talking with him about the challenges that the GOP faces reaching out to the millennial generation.

We've also got our regular round of articles that we'll be discussing, hopefully with Mike joining us to add his perspective, so it's going to be a busy show!

A few other articles in the list, not as many as other episodes but still some stores worth stirring up.

Episode 284: For Their Own Good

It seems I managed to pull in articles that got everyone's blood boiling! This episode has to be one of the more lively in some time, and not because of bad jokes. All of our callers and a few folks in SecondLife had thoughts to add to the conversation

In our next episode we'll be talking with Mike Garcar, a Field Director for the Ohio College Republican Federation, Romney campaign worker and upcoming author. We'll be talking about his observations about engaging the millennial generation.

One of the things we count on elected and appointed officials to do is act in the best interests of their constituents. In this episode we are going to look at actions that have been taken where this does not seem to be the case. From those who have won elections down to school officials, it seems that reactions and plans are more of an assault on sensibility than anything.

This episode turned out well despite TalkShoe's best efforts! There were some technical difficulties causing the live recording to be delayed and I had limited control until the end of the show. Regardless, we had a good time talking about the popular issues from the past week from a different angle.

During the last episode I talked about keeping the conversation civil, not being insulting or defamatory and looking at examples of stories where that didn't happen. Those concepts only work if both sides are playing by the same rules. It's apparent that this isn't the case, as is pointed out in the articles for this episode. The question is, what do we do about that and how should it be addressed moving forward?

Episode 280: Communication Necessities

Administrative comment: Continually apologizing for the late posts and then posting late the following week is getting a tad repetitive, so I'll explain rather than make excuses. There are some big things being planned for the podcast as well as a new endeavor. Nothing is going to change for quite some time (in Internet terms of time, at least), however if you're a blogger, podcaster or vodcaster that is interested in hearing more about the rumblings of an interesting project, contact me directly.

This week we talked about the things necessary for a good, civil conversation. We also identified the real definition of the concept and also what it is not. Civility does not equate with watering down or with changing a message just to make it palatable to a wide audience. If you want to hear more, listen to the podcast!

There are some required aspects for effective communication, whether the subject is politics, the weather or a shopping list. In this episode we're going to look at some news articles that are examples of where these are noticeably missing from one side or the other. Let's talk about them and see how we can improve the conversation!
