Front Porch Political Talk Episode 55: Smoke and Mirrors

I don't know if we managed to fully expose the man behind the curtain in this episode but we covered a lot of different topics during the conversation! We didn't get through all of the articles but we had a fun time. There's also some interesting tidbits on security, media coverage and marketing thrown in.

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #24: Expected Outcomes

I can't help but marvel at people that are surprised by recent events. Many of the issues that are now considered unexpected have been a part of the overall promise from the President and his party for many years. In this episode we discuss a few of these.

Episode 329: Can't Want That

This was another one of those episodes where we started with a plan and veered off of it from the beginning.  Making it through two of the nine articles on the list, we had a long discussion about education, common core, work ethic and even had some welfare and military discussion in the mix. It's a lively examination from different perspectives (we're not in lock-step) about where America is, where it needs to go and what methods work (or don't) to get there. There are also some gratuitous Spaceballs references and the homework assigned is to go watch the movie!

The biggest thing that came out of this episode is that after 328 recordings and conversations, my wife finally decided that she wanted to join in for an extended comment. I'll try to get her involved in the future but the one main article we got to is a huge subject for her.

Articles for Episode 329: Can't Want That

One of the cutest things I've heard was my then 4 year old nephew say, "can't want that!" He was talking about a bad thing happening and he had the perfect answer for it. In this episode we're going to look at a number of different articles that would bring out the same response.

As an administrative note, I'm working on changing the way show notes, articles and episode posts are presented here on the site. It may be more advantageous to go back to having a single post per week with both the links to the articles as well as the audio file itself. I'd like to get some feedback before implementing this change so please let me know what you think by emailing conservativepodcast@gmail.com. Thank you!

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!

Articles for Episode 315: Freezing Out

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 252: Internet and Foreign Policies

A lot of fun in this episode, with David Oatney as well as a round-table of Shorahmin, Toawa, Joesf and Tom from Secondlife.  David is a Tennessee State House Examiner, Western Religion and Elections examiner for Examiner.com. We didn't manage to get through all of the articles but rather jumped through two different sets of subjects.

Episode 228: Lies and Mythdemeanors

Well, we got through some of what we planned on... though the myths part never made it to the conversation.  With Ken out this week we had Shorahmin as our guest co-host.  Toawa and Joesf also joined in on the call.  Lots of talk about the health care bill and what's ailing the educational and medical systems.  We did stick to our promise from last week to talk about the new proposals of the Health Care overhaul from the GOP, and it turns out that by some estimations it's not all honey and roses!

Episode 193: Claims and Ammunition

There were some technical issues with this episode that delayed it from being released. Regular listeners will notice a difference in the audio quality, turns out my system decided not to use the fancy mixer and reverted to the internal microphone on my laptop for the show. I've corrected that for next week!

Some times in battle, the best move is to wait for the opponent to either implode or for their members to turn on them when the game changes pace. Then again, sometimes you have to take a serious look at your own side. Tonight we talk about the ammo being provided by politicians from both sides, and the insanity or opportunity it represents.

This episode, like many others, didn't make it through all of the articles for the evening. There were some particularly good points raised, and Bachmann's "$2 Gas" coupled with comments I heard on Bob Brinker's Money Talk about an economist suggesting that an executive order forcing all new federal fleet vehicles to run on natural gas would have just about that impact made for some interesting conversation.

Episode 131: Striking Stories of Strikes and Unions

We've minced, we've visited Wonderland and we weren't surprised when things happened as promised. Tonight, we've got some striking news about a wide variety of things, starting at the Final Frontier and even less stable space cases.

Tonight was a very fun show! Ken and I managed to get the word "poop" in before the 5 minute mark and a couple of articles were added during the show itself. We had a lively audience in SecondLife and TalkShoe both. Additionally, I was able to get into SecondLife through AjaxLife again.

Episode 130: Of Cabbages and Kings

On this Memorial day weekend, we can't help but feel like we're living in the odd world of the Looking Glass! In New York we've had the new Knave of Hearts anointed, in Louisiana Obama and his entourage seem to have recreated the Walrus and the Carpenter and Congress has decided to shuffle in a new suit into the military's deck of cards while the Anglican Archbishop chastised the Episcopal church for ordaining an openly gay bishop. Along with those topics we had a remedial lesson on Memorial Day versus Veteran's day and talked breifly about the Korean situation.

Episode 129: To mince or not to mince, that is the question.

Over the past week there have been a slew of news items with examples of people mincing or not mincing words. We've got orgies, bishops, politicians, judges and partiers.

This was my first night to run the show without being in SecondLife at all in a long time! As I mentioned last week, my computer is in the process of being repaired so things like live audio and snippets will have to wait for a while. All of the audio is post-recording which is adding to the release time for the show.
