Front Porch Political Talk Episode 37: Neither Now Nor Later

Well, this was an interesting show and didn't go exactly the way we planned.  Conversations that include Common Core can sometimes be tense and this one did not fail in that regard.  We also spent a lot of time talking about the Oregon shooting, the victims and the Constitutional challenges with either preventing or detecting activities.  It's not a light conversation by any means but one that must be had.

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 this episode:
More articles that I could fit in the regular list but worth reading!

We're a little late on posting the episode this week. No mad libs but a lot of fun talking about the teachable moments that appeared in articles from the past month or so.

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.

Just a bit of extra reading for the week

Episode 333: Learn Something New

If we learned nothing else from this episode we discovered that there are some areas where the participants disagree. This was one of our more heated recordings and provides some interesting launching points for discussion in the future.

Talkshoe had some technical difficulties with its audio storage servers and therefore some players did not pick up this episode right away.  I'm re-posting this to push the episode out again.

Articles for Episode 333: Learn Something New

We learn new things every day. Sometimes it's a useless bit of trivia and other times it's life-changing skills. In this episode we are going to look at some articles that we can all learn from.

Starting next week we are going to be consolidating show notes and post into a single entry on the website. This will serve two purposes… one to make sure I get the show posted on the same day it is recorded and second to ensure that folks can find the links to articles easily. I'll be looking for feedback as to if this is a better format for listeners or not.

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 325: What Are We Learning?

I had to clarify with this episode that it's not, "what have we learned." Rather, it's about what we are learning based on the articles we discussed. We had an engaging and fun conversation.

Administrative note from Hatton: Episode posts to the main site may be delayed until after the end of April.  I'm working on finishing up my MBA and with the exception of time for show prep and recording/editing I have very little extra time or energy during the week.  I will try to get shows up to the site as quickly as possible.  If you want faster access to episodes you can subscribe to the show on iTunes or the main Talkshoe RSS feed.  The only disadvantage of subscribing there is any extra content I might post (highly unlikely for the next few months) would be missing.  I sincerely appreciate your understanding and patience.

Articles for Episode 325: What Are We Learning?

I am a firm believer in both education and learning from events. In this episode we are going to look at some articles that have good "teachable moments" and talk about what should (or should not) be taken from them.

Not a lot of articles for this week but some that didn't make the main list. Here are the rest

Episode 321: Selective Prosecution and Enforcement

This episode almost got me in trouble! Not from anything I said but because it got a bit lound and I had to raise my voice. We had a lot of interaction with callers and folks participating in TalkShoe and SecondLife! We actually stayed on topic more often than not and there are some good learning moments amongst the laughter.

Articles for Episode 321: Selective Prosecution and Enforcement

In our last episode we talked about folks that were legitimately using different systems and concepts in unexpected ways. In this one we look at some instances where people are trying to use the system selectively for their own gain. We're going to discuss these and their impact on both the Rule of Law and the American psyche.

Articles for Episode 314: Reviewing the Year

It's the last episode of the year and we're taking the time to look at some of the larger items that hit our discussions in 2013. There are new elements to some and reminders that others are still unresolved. This promises to be an interesting episode all around!

Our fundraising campaign to take our podcast to the next level is still going! We are still shy of the $400 needed to make the first quarter in order to join the Boost Radio Network. This represents a huge change for us and we're excited to see the results. If you would like to donate use the link on the right hand side of the site.
