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.

Front Porch Political Talk Episode 13: Getting the Story Straight

This was a good episode from a content perspective but I found audio "glitches" on the production side. In fact it was so bad that this episode did not make it to Red State Talk Radio. All that said I felt the conversation was cohesive enough and the message important enough to release it to podcast subscribers.

Articles for Episode 350: Doing Their Job

We've talked about this in the past but the articles for this week call for another inspection of job descriptions and effectiveness. There are a few different areas that we are going to touch on and they should prove to be interesting at least!

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.

Articles for Episode 341: Yeah, They Went There

Sometimes we look at something and ask, "did they really 'go there'?" This generally means that whoever was talking or writing took the thought to an unexpected conclusion or thread. We do this a lot with our friend Joesf, actually! Tonight we're going to look at some articles outlining where the political left has been taking things. We'll see if they garner similar responses.

Episode 324: Shameful Actions

This was a fun episode! It was interesting to see the take that different audience members had on the t-shirt story as well as the whistleblower concept. Also, there's a shocker in this one where I actually agree with Senator Gillibrand!

Personal issues on my side kept me from posting until today. As I wrap up my MBA I may be behind on posting but the recordings are definitely being made.

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 312: Follow the Power, Follow the Money

A common phrase that is used in political conversation is, "follow the money." It's more than that in today's environment, we also have to, "follow the power." In this episode we look at a number of articles where we need to follow the power and sometimes follow the money.

We have launched a fundraising campaign to take our podcast to the next level. The final goal of this campaign is $1,850 and will allow us 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.
