Episode 362: No Thank You

Oh we had quite the fun time talking about things to decline as well as certain concepts that are in decline. I'm also going to decline delaying on posting the show again as it has proven to be a poor choice. We were joined by Larry, Joesf, Toawa and Naj called in for a brief bit. The interesting part of the last guest was his agreement with the current line of conversation.

From all of us here at the podcast I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! This Christmas may you have, "walls for the wind, a roof for the rain and drinks beside the fire. Laughter to cheer you, those you love near you and all that your heart may desire."

Articles for Episode 362: No Thank You

While there are those that think saying, "no thank you" at Christmas is an insult there are things can be denied politely. In this episode we have a group of articles that point out some of these. From state issues to race and national concerns, there seem to a lot of areas where respectful refusal should be the name of the game.

Episode 361: More Poor Choices

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

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:

Articles for Episode 359: Getting Into the Holiday Spirit

It's the beginning of the Christmas (or whatever holiday you prefer to celebrate, don't steal my thunder) Season and with that we are going to look at the insanity that is required or even expected. In this episode we're going to have a look at giving, taking and even some politics.

This is also the quasi-anniversary of the podcast! We are now rolling into our 8th season. There have been some bumps, some delays and a lot of growth over the years. Thank you to everyone for your continued support of this endeavor. Articles for this episode:

Episode 358: Like a Bad Rerun

While the themes repeated, the content was somewhat unique. We had a good time after our hiatus talking about issues that come up again and again.

I did it again and I apologize! The time slipped away from me this week in terms of getting the show updated. There is also a tidbit here, we're recording this week on Saturday not Sunday so watch the Talkshoe site for the schedule.

Articles for Episode 358: Like a Bad Rerun

I'd like to say that we're going to be talking about new things in this episode. Instead we're going to be looking at things that keep popping up like a bad sitcom re-run. Let's take on these media tropes like adults and have some fun!

Episode 357: Hearing Something Different

There were some new things said and some great conversation points in this episode! We had a lot of fun trying not to say the same things that the other shows are.

I mentioned during the show but I'll put it here as well… we are taking a break next weekend. This means that our next scheduled episode will be the Sunday before Thanksgiving.  That should put us to the start of the new season as well!

Articles for Episode 357: Hearing Something Different

We end our show with the tag, "different words in a different order." In this episode we're going to look at articles that break stereotypes in some cases and enforce them in others. It's going to be a fun conversation!

Articles for this episode:
(Edit:) One of our listeners also brought this up in an email to me at the same time that I was putting together the show.  We'll look at this article as well: GOP official goes off on NAACP for ignoring Mia Love and Tim Scott

This week's "extra articles" are truly worth reading! I wish I had time or a subject that I could include them in so please, if you have comments on these share them!

Articles for Episode 356: Learning and Promises

On this final weekend before the 2014 mid-term elections, politicians are promising some wild things and people are learning more about what's actually going on in our country. In this episode we're going to talk about just a few of those things that are popping up in the news. Without a doubt there are more items than this!

This Tuesday is election day for the 2014 mid-terms as well as local races. Please take the time to vote and educate yourself as much as possible on the issues and where those applying to represent you on them stand.

Episode 355: Once It's There

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

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 Episode 354: Get Your Story Straight

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?

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.

Episode 349: Some People Need Help

In contrast to last week's episode, this one hit on all cylinders and we were able to have a good, solid discussion about the various connotations to "needing help." These ranged from the "bless their heart" concept to legislative action to areas that truly do need a considered level of assistance.

We even started to talk about an article that was in the "extra reading" list (sorry about that, I couldn't continue on the nudist camp conversation) and brought up a local primary election for me that had me picking based on some very limited information.

Articles for Episode 349: Some People Need Help

There are different connotations of the phrase, "need help." In this episode we're going to explore a few of those. We've got articles looking at outrageous statements, strange mandates and areas where assistance is truly needed. Keeping with the changes there's no "fun" opening article, things are too important this week and the absurd can sometimes get in the way.

Episode 348: Doing Hard Work

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

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 347: Jumping the Shark

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.

Articles for Episode 346: Teachable Moments

In this episode we're going to focus on some teachable moments that have come up in the past few months. We're going back over a long period of time with these articles but they're still relevant today! No mad lib this week. Yes, some are disappointed but there were some personal items that prevented the proper execution of it this week.
