Everyone needs a little vacation time and mine happened over the weekend before Halloween. There wasn’t a lot to it — a few days at a quiet B&B, a minor-league hockey game, a couple or three nice dinners out, and a visit to the incomparable SuperMegaProducer Mike and the Take That Media Studios.

It’s not every week I can have two people on the show who are quite as accomplished and forthcoming with great advice as I did in Episode 168.

I have quite a bit of catching up to do on these show posts. Time and tight schedules get us all from time to time and, well, I got gotten good. Episode 167 has a few nifty little riffs, if I do say so myself, on the subject of media bias and how it played […]

Randall Munro, who draws the geeky and very funny xkcd comic strip has recently taken up the mantle of Internet Science Answer Man. As suits his strip, though, he doesn’t’ take on the usual questions like “Why is the sky blue?” or “Will I die if I eat 200 marshamllows? Asking for a friend *burp*”. […]

I like when I’m on the same side of an issue as Stephen Green. Here’s a bit of his open letter to Speaker John Boehner. I’ll repeat: Give President Obama and the Democrats the tax hikes they demand, and which most polls show the American public accepts. You’ll let us avoid the fiscal cliff — […]
