Episode 109: Yes Gwen, There is a Santa Claus

Our last show of the year, but definitely not our last show! We had quite a lot of fun with the show tonight and got through a LOT of stories. We still had to dump a couple.

Tonight's show has some good and some not so good examples of this year's proof that there is still a Santa Claus. Unfortunately we've also got some stories that talk about various attacks on the Christmas holiday.

Article list for tonight (though we didn't get to the last two):
As I say in the podcast - if you like the show, blog about us and tell four friends and blog about us! If you didn't like tonight's show, we invite you back next week where you will hear different words in a different order.

Episode 108: They Eat Their Wounded

Tonight's show ran long but man was it worth it! We had a lot of items to cover, especially about the main issue - the growing evidence that the Democrats are continuing to crack under the growing pressure of majority. Liberals are upset with the "establishment" that Obama campaigned to change and the Republicans are sitting back and prodding them towards implosion when needed.

You know it's getting bad when Air America is running shows speaking ill of Obama!

Episode 107: Schools, Speeches, Spending and Stupid Decisions

In this week's episode, we are going to dig in to a few different items that need the attention. First, Obama's Nobel acceptance speech with captioning courtesy of the Huffington Post. Then we're going to talk about that oh-so-nasty financial reform bill that was pushed through the House. Finally we've got an update on those poor enemy combatants being kept in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and what's going to happen to them. Join us every Sunday at 8:30pm EST or listen any time at http://www.eastcoastconservative.com

Site Move Completed

In the past couple of episodes, I've made hints that things were about to change on the website... and now as you can see, that change is complete!  The decision was made to migrate the podcast's website from my private hosting to Blogger for a few different reasons.  I hinted at a few in episode 106 but for those that might ask again, here are a few answers:

You will notice quite a few of the differences immediately:

  • Flash Player: I have removed the flash player from each episode.  Instead you can use the Blubrry layer located on the top right-hand side of the page.  This player runs in a pop-up window that can continue to run even when you navigate away from the site.
  • Tags, Tags and more Tags: A few blocks down from the Blubrry player is a section called "Things We've Talked About".  This contains a list of all the different subjects talked about in the past.  Clicking on one of them will show you all of the posts that have that tag assigned.  The larger the font size of the word, the more it has been discussed.  For example, Obama has been talked about more than Jesse Jackson, so the font size of his name is larger.
  • Layout: More compliant and hopefully easier to use.
  • Additional Authors: Now Ken (or anyone else we invite) can create posts on the site without having to go through me first.
For you, the listener and reader, the change-over should be done already.  The RSS feed has stayed the same  (http://feeds.feedburner.com/EastCoastConservative) and obviously the website URL has moved here as well.

There are some things that might be a bit "glitchy" for a while.  The RSS feed will be getting odd updates because of my need to go back and tag the past entries.  I also have about 35 more posts to bring over, mainly from early 2009.  I've already done a lot of tagging but it's a process that takes quite some time.  Because of that, I'm going to be turning off the feed updates on Facebook until things are at least partially completed.  I found out the hard way that the Facebook feed tools will re-publish anything that has changed, not just new entries, and I don't want to be accused of spamming anyone.


If you have questions about the move that I don't answer here, by all means ask!

Episode 106: Cojones

In tonight's episode we're talking about the obvious presence or lack of cajones that are expressed in the selection of news articles. From a secretary that felt bad to Obama's Afghan decision, it's going to be a big case of balls! Join us tonight at 8:30pm or visit http://www.eastcoastconservative.com
