Episode 330: Striking an Accord

0 comments
This episode turned out to be a good example of how to look beyond the headline to the content hidden underneath. It seems like so many of the stories had more to tell than the title implied. It was a great conversation!

At the end of the episode is a dedication to one of the show's big supporters. Jimmie Jones, my step-father and role model passed away in April and I felt it only fitting to dedicate this show to him.

While compromise is not a dirty word, there are still concepts and beliefs that can not be given up on. In this episode we're going to discuss areas where reaching an agreement sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.

My apologies for the short notice on last week's episode. There were personal issues that had to be dealt with. An explanation will be made during this recording.

Episode 322: Clowning Around

I'm a bit late in posting this episode, I'll blame it on the polar vortex. We had a lot of fun with this episode discussing different articles that all come from the "you can't make this up" stack.

Every week we open with a fun or human interest story and through the recording we try to have fun with the conversation. In this episode we're going to look at some stories that fall under the heading of, "you just can't make this stuff up!" Whether we're looking at actual clowns, spending, marriage or climate change these articles will definitely start a conversation. How much of it turns into rolling punch-lines is up for debate!

There were a lot of these kinds of articles this week. Not all could make the list so here are some others.

Episode 315: Freezing Out

Suffice to say that there was nothing frosty about this episode beyond the weather references and the points that we were trying to make. There were also come interesting learning points about the history of education and the impact that it has on the perception of students about America's past. The weather also had an impact on the posting of this episode. We're thawing out now!

The news seems to be tied to the weather these days, with frigid temperatures and a cold political scene (though those could be reversed). In this episode we're going to look at ways that conservative voices and the words of those that want to see something more than gridlock or status-quo are being treated. There are also examples where the left seems to be hogging the spotlight with sadistic glee. Hopefully we can bolster some ways to address the discrepancy.

While our fundraising campaign did not meet the level needed to join the Boost radio network for the first quarter, the fundraiser is still on! We are in discussions with the network about an abridged quarter, so the push is still on! If you would like to donate use the link on the right hand side of the site.

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.

Episode 283: Disagreeable Listeners

0 comments
This was quite the interesting show, with an opening conversation about Memorial Day followed by a very good discussion on the subject. Some of the conversation got rather interesting and there were some good points brought up. There are also some examples where the group didn't agree, yet we managed to follow our own rule of disagreeing without being disagreeable.

As we discussed during that opening segment, I hope everyone has/had a safe and happy Memorial Day!

It's no secret that there are lots of things we hear in the news that we don't like. That's part of the basis and material for this podcast! In this episode, however, we're going to talk what some of the things that elected and public officials are saying they are hearing and don't like. It seems that the distaste for the goings-on in the beltway (and some places beyond) are hitting people from all political bents the wrong way.

Twitter was a little slow this week for us. It might have been the preparation for the Memorial Day weekend or just a slow news cycle. There are some other stories that should be read, here's what didn't make the episode this week:

Episode 280: Communication Necessities

0 comments
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!

Well, this episode did run a bit off plan, however there was a lot of good conversation!  Instead of starting off right away with the normal flow of things, we began our show talking about the results of the Egyptian election.

Okay, so the truth can sometimes be scary, especially when it reveals something other than what is considered politically correct or popular. Here we have a group of articles that point out the truth that some people would rather have avoided.
There were a lot of other articles that came up, including some interesting slants on the Occupy activities and official reactions and actions to them. They didn't make the list but of course we link to them in case you want to read them.
