Front Porch Political Talk Episode 17: Setting the Stage

No comments:
The stage was set for a fun episode and I think we delivered on that promise. As usual we did not make it through all of the articles but we did have fun discussing the ones we got to.  I think one of the best aspects of our round-table is that the opinions shared cover a range of viewpoints.  This can be seen during our discussion regarding the Baltimore "protests".

Episode 361: More Poor Choices

No comments:
I am not going to make the same poor choice I have for the past two episodes and think, "it's late, I'll post this later." We talked about some interesting poor decisions that have been made, some of them more than once. There were also some interesting tangents taken during the conversation. I swear I'm going to forward my emails to Joesf at some point in the future!

Articles for Episode 361: More Poor Choices

No comments:
I'll admit it, anyone can make poor choices. When you're in the political "eye" those bad ideas can and will come back to haunt you. In this episode we're going to look at some recent decisions that will be regretted… in some cases sooner rather than later! We also talked about these back in June of this year with Episode 338 (Poor Choices).

As mentioned on the show, we're going to be pushing our Facebook page more this year. We are also asking folks to support us by listening to the show on Red State Talk Radio or Stitcher.com. Articles for this episode:

Episode 355: Once It's There

No comments:
This is one of those shows that you have to listen to more than once. Our goal was to talk about things that, once implemented, have proven very difficult to dislodge. The conversation didn't go quite the way it was expected but in the end became a very strong example of just that fact. It's also an example of where the participants in the podcast can have a disagreement and remain civil about it.

Articles for Episode 355: Once It's There

No comments:
There is a concept with government that, "once something's in place, it's almost impossible to remove." That's not always the case but in this episode we're going to run with that theme. The articles we've got on tap point out programs, actions and mindsets that need to be adjusted before they are ingrained in America's mindset.

Articles for this episode:
More articles that I could fit in the regular list but worth reading!

Episode 354: Get Your Story Straight

No comments:
We got the story straight and had a fun time talking about it! We even made it through most of the articles this episode, which is quite the accomplishment. Also, thank you to all that showed your support for me on my MBA. I'm done and can now focus attentions on other things around here!

Articles for Episode 354: Get Your Story Straight

No comments:
When you hear some reports, you wonder if they've got their stories straight. With everything going on this week, it's been easy to find those areas where the message might be a bit off. We're going to talk about those in this episode.

My apologies for the delay in posting the episodes lately. I have been working on my MBA and am down to the end of my final term. The need to complete assignments has taken priority over the show in those cases. The good news is that by the time the next episode records I'll be done. Thanks for everyone's patience!

Articles for Episode 353: Say That Again?

No comments:
We see them every week, articles that don't fit the narrative and stories so absurd you wonder if they're planted for distraction. Generally only a few sneak by but they do crop up. In this episode we're going to discuss some articles like that. These stories shed light on concepts so far off what the media wants to broadcast that they make you do a double-take.

We've talked about this in the past but the articles for this week call for another inspection of job descriptions and effectiveness. There are a few different areas that we are going to touch on and they should prove to be interesting at least!

Episode 348: Doing Hard Work

No comments:
This episode was actually more difficult to post than most. That's not because of technical issues but rather because I think this one sets a record for how off-base the show premise was from the articles. The conversation was even more off-base from the articles. We had a lot of fun with the conversation and there's a lot of information... just not the information I expected as the show notes were being compiled.

Articles for Episode 348: Doing Hard Work

No comments:
Confucius said, "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." In this episode we're going to look at politicians that might have picked the wrong career path. Politics can sometimes be hard work and if your heart isn't in it then it's definitely not for you.

After careful consideration, the Madlibs are being scratched from the lineup for now. It was too much work for not enough humor. Thanks to those that participated, we'll work on different openings as time goes on.

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.

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!

There were a ton of other things that made it on our Twitter feed. Here is a sampling of those articles:

Episode 341: Yeah, They Went There

No comments:
Man, when I say that we went there, we went all the way there! This episode covers the map including subjects that were and were not included on our article list. We hit on presidential candidates, computer games, the belly-button inspection (aka Selfie) trend among American citizens... and even some of the things we meant to.

Articles for Episode 341: Yeah, They Went There

No comments:
Sometimes we look at something and ask, "did they really 'go there'?" This generally means that whoever was talking or writing took the thought to an unexpected conclusion or thread. We do this a lot with our friend Joesf, actually! Tonight we're going to look at some articles outlining where the political left has been taking things. We'll see if they garner similar responses.

Articles for this episode:
These extra articles are also sources of ire for a variety of reasons.

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.

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