Episode 347: Jumping the Shark

0 comments
We managed to talk about jumping the shark without doing so ourselves (unless you count the madlibs, I don't). It was fun but if you're Obama-sensitive you might want to turn away. There are a lot of interesting nuggets, including mentioning of an NPR story about the EU's regulation on vacuum cleaners and Happy Days.

For those of you who missed the MadLib during the recording, here are the results:
A recent scary poll shows that the majority of people are terrified of public governing.  They would rather walk across burning jacobites or swim in goat-infested waters than give a speech in front of nuns.  This hearty fear can be overcome in five easy voters:
1. Organize all of your gym teachers on a piece of plank.
2. Remember to start your speech with a funny Senator.
3. When speaking, look your audience straight in the feet and speak in a strong and stupid voice.
4. Be simple.  Never use damaged words that are over the audiences eyes.
5. Always keep a pitcher of mercury next to you, in case your shin goes dry.

Articles for Episode 347: Jumping the Shark

The concept of Jumping the Shark is used when a production does something extraordinary in order to attract attention but instead signals its decline. The phrase came from the Happy Days episode in which Fonzie literally jumped a shark in a stunt.

These days, the term applies to almost anything and tonight we're going to look at politicians that have been doing an excellent job at it.

Episode 344: Your Policy is Showing

0 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.

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:

Episode 338: Poor Choices

As I said in the show notes, everyone makes poor choices. For this episode I wonder if some of the articles don't fall into this category, not because they weren't worth some aspect of discussion but because we barely got through half of them!

Everyone makes bad decisions from time to time but in most cases they have little impact on the nation as a whole. In this episode we look at decisions that were made recently that do have far-reaching consequences. Articles for this episode:

This was another fun episode to record with a "cliff-hanger" question at the end due to time constraints. Amazingly enough there were very few tangents and while we didn't get through all of the articles on the list we made it through most of them!

Articles for Episode 336: One Word Descriptions

The media likes to use as few words as possible in order to ensure they grab the audience's attention. In this episode we look at an assortment of articles and work to put one or maybe two words out there to describe our reactions. The topics may be varied but we're going to work to make sure that they don't get glossed over because of too many words. Articles for this episode:
There were a few others that we couldn't fit in to the list but still need a categorization. Here they are:

Episode 333: Learn Something New

If we learned nothing else from this episode we discovered that there are some areas where the participants disagree. This was one of our more heated recordings and provides some interesting launching points for discussion in the future.

Talkshoe had some technical difficulties with its audio storage servers and therefore some players did not pick up this episode right away.  I'm re-posting this to push the episode out again.

We learn new things every day. Sometimes it's a useless bit of trivia and other times it's life-changing skills. In this episode we are going to look at some articles that we can all learn from.

Starting next week we are going to be consolidating show notes and post into a single entry on the website. This will serve two purposes… one to make sure I get the show posted on the same day it is recorded and second to ensure that folks can find the links to articles easily. I'll be looking for feedback as to if this is a better format for listeners or not.

Episode 215: Dirty Jobs

Well, we didn't let a little ditch distract us from catching up and recording this week's podcast! We followed the same articles - to a degree - and had a fun time for a Monday night recording. With the primary in Ken's home state tomorrow, we spent some time on that subject and talked about how dirty a job politics really is.

Episode 201: What Next Big Thing?

 So much of the news this week has been focused on either the protests against banks (and capitalism by extension) and the actions that Iran tried to do.  In this episode we worked to talk about those other stories that didn't make the top headlines or all the news feeds.

What happens when one or two stories steal the spotlight for a news week? Simple, everything that doesn't ring as loud gets lost in the noise. We try to find those stories, pull them out and bring them up for conversation. Here's what is on the list for this week:
Unfortunately, our show is also restricted in time, so here are the articles that didn't make the line-up:

Sovereignty Day in Iraq

0 comments
Jan 1, 2009 is now officially called "Sovereignty Day" in Iraq. Why? Well, while most of the US was sleeping off their New Year's hangover, the Green Zone in Baghdad was officially put under Iraqi control. I'm not sure how many others recognize the significance of that event but it has been hailed by Iraqi leaders as a huge step in new government's control.

A really good show tonight - a technical glitch with Ken's phone dying out that prompted for some ad-libbing. We were also joined by Richard and Jayspari for parts of the call. Articles discussed in tonight's show:

Quite the show tonight! Good turn-out in Second Life and in the chat room as well! We had a good commentary from Guest 4 until I started talking about the Obama acceptance speech. We welcome anyone to join us for the recording session which happens every Sunday night at 8:30pm EST. You can get more details at our Talkcast page. Want to help out with the show? We're looking for people to "introduce" the show for us... either live during the recording or pre-recorded. If you're interested in helping out, email us at conservativepodcast@gmail.com.

Oh, and for those who want text versions of the items quoted from Obama's speech: Here are the quotes that I agreed with:
"... go through the federal budget line by line, eliminating programs that no longer work and making the ones we do need work better and cost less, because we cannot meet 21st-century challenges with a 20th-century bureaucracy."
"Yes, we must provide more ladders to success for young men who fall into lives of crime and despair. But we must also admit that programs alone can't replace parents, that government can't turn off the television and make a child do her homework, that fathers must take more responsibility to provide love and guidance to their children."
And the ones that I took special issue with:
"We are the party of Roosevelt. We are the party of Kennedy. So don't tell me that Democrats won't defend this country. Don't tell me that Democrats won't keep us safe."
"[We are more compassionate than a government] that sits on its hands while a major American city drowns before our eyes."
"If you don't have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from."
