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 345: Let's Just Talk

This episode went better than planned. It didn't exactly follow the article list but we did talk about them. Two new things were introduced as well, the Mad Lib opening as well as the Constitutional Quiz Cards. Both worked well as a part of the show.

Episode 345 Recording Delay

We are delaying our recording by a day, vacation got in the way of show prep!

HOWEVER, there is a change we're going to be making to the show and the audience is an integral part of it.  We're introducing something called "Mad Libs for President".  If you've never heard of the concept of Mad Libs, it's a short selection of text with key words removed.  The job of the audience is to provide words of the right type (noun, verb, adjective, adverb) without knowing where they go or how they will be used.  It promises to be entertaining if nothing else!

We're going to start this week.  Please send me the following words either as a comment on this post, a comment on the Facebook page or via email the following words and I'll put them together for tomorrow night's recording.  I need the following:
  • Article of Clothing (plural)
  • Part of the Body (plural)
  • Two (w) nouns
  • Six (6) Plural nouns
  • Six (6) Adjectives
  • One Verb
  • One Verb ending in "ing"
Please keep in mind that while this podcast requires a level of maturity is also must be fit for public presentation,  Please do not send any rude, crude or otherwise "bleep"able words.

Thanks!

Episode 344: Your Policy is Showing

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.

Articles for Episode 344: Your Policy is Showing

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 343: Are They Thinking

I think we put our grey matter, abused or not, to the task of this episode's discussion. Ken wasn't able to join us but the rest of the gang and I were able to pull on anyway.  We managed to talk about atheism, torture and Joe Biden among other things.

Articles for Episode 343: Are They Thinking

Here I thought we could talk about something intelligent, instead we look at articles that make us wonder if folks on the other side are even exercising common sense. It's going to be an interesting trek across a number of different subjects in this episode so strap in and get ready for fun!

There were a ton of other things that made it on our Twitter feed. Here is a sampling of those articles:
