Episode 266: Moves Toward Change

The concept for this episode was to discuss some of the things that were moving forward with the GOP and conservative ideas. We looked at the question, "is it enough?" The answer came back an underwhelming, "maybe."  There's a lot more to talk about but we're somewhat encouraged by Rep. Ryan's concept of, "pick your battles."  The important question is whether or not the Republican leadership will follow through with this.

We've gotten some responses from our product poll and are working on designs for coffee cups, mugs, bumper stickers, and other non-clothing type items. Look for a link to our new store to be online starting in February!

Articles for Episode 266: Moves Toward Change

Things are beginning to change. We're not talking about Obama's change, either. The GOP seems to be taking some strides to becoming an effective party again, at least in some areas. Will they be enough? Let's talk about that and other things tonight at 8:30pm Eastern! Articles for this episode:
There are many other stories as well… not as many as last week, but they are still worth checking out!

Episode 265: Looking for the Reasons

This was a tough episode to put together, as can be seen with the flood of articles in the show notes page. We have our new listener and participant Naj to thank for the subject of tonight's show, trying to at least start a conversation on the reasons behind the violence that doesn't often make national headlines like the sensational stories do. It was an educational and encouraging conversation to say the least!

Episode 264: Hot Potato

We really had a fun time on the podcast!  Playing "Hot Potato" with a few of the subjects outlined in the show notes turned in to a number of meaningful conversations and discussion ideas.  If you have comments, be sure to post them to the site or email them to conservativepodcast@gmail.com.

Please be sure to vote in our merchandise poll to identify those things you'd be willing to buy from the podcast.  We're in the home stretch for the poll and I want as much input as possible before investing in the preparation of the products.

Articles for Episode 264: Hot Potato

Looking over the articles that were collected over the past week, it was rather difficult to settle on a single subject for this episode. I ended up picking three issues that are currently being bandied about by the media and political pundits so we could add our input to them.

Before I give the list of articles, I also wanted to share a new site that I found that isn't really an article. Pop Vox is a site that allows you to see bills that are going through the cogs of our political machine and share your opinions on them.

Here are the articles for this episode:
Like I said, there were a lot of articles to pick from this week. This show could have gone a number of different ways. Please, if there are stories you'd like to discuss that we didn't make it to, feel free to add your comments below!

Episode 263: Broken Standards

Well, true to the subject there were lots of "broken" things to discuss.  It was an enjoyable time but also rather eye-opening when it comes to the American standards that seem to be in serious need of repair.

Please be sure to vote in our merchandise poll to identify those things you'd be willing to buy from the podcast.
