Front Porch Political Talk Episode 9: Forcing Their Opinions

No comments:
Another episode, another great conversation! We didn't agree on every issue and that's okay because we talked about the articles withot requiring everyone to be in lock-step. We spent a lot of time talking about Bitcoin and the regulation of that as well as how Planet Fitness might have caused some angst in its own customer base. Those weren't the only things on the agenda, so listen in to hear the whole show!

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #9: Forcing Their Opinions

No comments:
When looking at the news there are times when it's painfully obvious that agendas and opinions are being pushed. In this episode we are focusing on articles that show this in a number of different ways.

There has been an unexpected change for the podcast's presence in Second Life. We say goodbye to Sunset River as the home of the Republican Party of SL and hello to a consolidated location on Cheertopia. Outside of SL we are also finalizing the options for folks to subscribe using either Patreon or Joyride. Articles for this episode:

Front Porch Political Talk Episode 8: Do We Really Want Change?

No comments:
So we had great conversation about whether or not folks really do want change.  From that discussion the answer is yes with an asterisk.  That asterisk is because the people that have to be elected work very hard to ensure that they stay elected, even if that means not taking true action on the things that they talk about "fixing."

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #8: Do We Really Want Change?

No comments:
There's been a lot of talk about changing things and fixing problems but it seems like a lot of people don't truly want this to happen. In this episode we are going to look at a number of examples of this based on CPAC and other actions from the past week.

We're also moving forward with the website changeover, some updates in Second Life and additional items.  A plan for three main sponsorship levels is being worked on with very affordable membership levels.  Once those are does we'll share them with everyone.

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #1: Changing Times and Predictions

No comments:
This is a transitional period for our podcast as we shift from the East Coast Conservative Podcast to the next generation of our discussion, Front Porch Political Talk. Over the next month or two folks will see old logos, new logos, new show notes in old sites and new domain names. Thank you for your patience as we make the shift to the new show.

A part of this includes a new recording time and show format. For this week we're going to be looking at some predictions for the new year but in-line with the show concept we'll delve deeper than we used to into the concepts behind the articles, not just the articles themselves. This should be an interesting conversation!

Episode 357: Hearing Something Different

No comments:
There were some new things said and some great conversation points in this episode! We had a lot of fun trying not to say the same things that the other shows are.

I mentioned during the show but I'll put it here as well… we are taking a break next weekend. This means that our next scheduled episode will be the Sunday before Thanksgiving.  That should put us to the start of the new season as well!

We end our show with the tag, "different words in a different order." In this episode we're going to look at articles that break stereotypes in some cases and enforce them in others. It's going to be a fun conversation!

Articles for this episode:
(Edit:) One of our listeners also brought this up in an email to me at the same time that I was putting together the show.  We'll look at this article as well: GOP official goes off on NAACP for ignoring Mia Love and Tim Scott

This week's "extra articles" are truly worth reading! I wish I had time or a subject that I could include them in so please, if you have comments on these share them!

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:
Just a bit of extra reading for the week

Episode 343: Are They Thinking

No comments:
I think we put our grey matter, abused or not, to the task of this episode's discussion. Ken wasn't able to join us but the rest of the gang and I were able to pull on anyway.  We managed to talk about atheism, torture and Joe Biden among other things.

Articles for Episode 343: Are They Thinking

Here I thought we could talk about something intelligent, instead we look at articles that make us wonder if folks on the other side are even exercising common sense. It's going to be an interesting trek across a number of different subjects in this episode so strap in and get ready for fun!

Episode 335: Missing the Point

No 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.

Articles for Episode 335: Missing the Point

No comments:
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:

Articles for Episode 329: Can't Want That

No comments:
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

No comments:
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!

Articles for Episode 318: Fundamental Concepts

No comments:
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

No 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

No comments:
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.
