You know, I used to listen to talk radio, to Rush or Hannity or the local/national sports talk guys and think “How the hell can they do that? How can they sit and talk for 3 or 4 hours? No way I could do that.”
Uh huh. And now here Alex and I are turning in roughly 2 hour podcasts. No commercials. No callers. No nothing. Just the two of us talking for 2 hours straight. *shakes head*
To start with, an apology. The quality of the audio…it just isn’t very good this week. It was all over the place while we were recording and any attempt I made after the fact didn’t much help. Sincerest apologies my friends. Hopefully next week will be better.
So what are we talking about this week? Well we start by continuing something I really like and that’s just talking about what’s happening personally. All too often we get caught up in the macro of our world and we forget about the micro. We forget about the personal. So AtC and I spend a bit of time just chatting. Then we get into the politics.
We really focused on just two topics this week: Rep Massey of Kentucky and Hillary. We, of course, expand from there, but they’re the starting points.

It’s stunning really. Alex and I are two, in our opinion, reasonably intelligent, successful and functioning adults and yet, we can’t keep track of our time. Both of us agreed that this week’s recording would have to be shorter because we didn’t have a ton of time.
So naturally the podcast went two hours. Amazing.
This week we spend a decent bit of time at the beginning just chatting about what’s going on in our lives, the good stuff, the fun stuff. From there we move into what we’ve kind of dubbed as the “Tyranny of Bureaucracy”, followed by brief laughter at Earth Day and then, of course, books.
Hope you folks are enjoying listening as much as we’re enjoying recording.
(my recommendations are essentially repeats and follow ups)
There will be no new podcast this week. Due to the holiday weekend and late Good Friday services and Saturday Egg Hunts and Sunday morning church and way too much good food Sunday afternoon and all that other stuff, Alex and I decided to take the week off instead of trying to cram in a recording when we (mostly I) were already worn out.
So nothing this week, we’ll be back next Tuesday.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend celebrating our risen Savior and I hope the rest of your week is both productive and not too stressful.
