Communication Breakdown – Episode 29: Marriage Equality

MarriageFeatured

Episode 29 of the podcast is live. This one starts out on an odd note: I swallow a gnat during the opening seconds. I begin talking and see a gnat fly around my face. I breathe in and the gnat gets sucked into my mouth and down my throat.

The big topic this week is about marriage equality. The LGBTQQA crowd can now legally get married in the state of West Virginia. I give my thoughts on marriage and look at this. Then I read a list of people’s Facebook comments they posted. There’s some ignorance there.

I give a status update on the next B-Sides book in my series and when I should be publishing volume two. I announce the stories that I have queued up for volume two and let you know which ones are finished and which aren’t.

And that’s everything for this week. Episode 30 is coming up, and I’ll try to have something special planned for that interesting number. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, etc about the podcast feel free to let me know.

Anyone Hear About This?: Atheists Get A Monument; Christians Get Peeved

Atheist_Monument-018b5
A quick recap of what happened Saturday, June¬†29: A group of atheists wanted to tear down a stone monument of the Ten Commandments in Starke, Florida. The atheists failed, but got something else. They got to place a monument to state their beliefs. Which is to say…nothing, they don’t believe in anything, duh. Of course, in a turn of events, there was a group of Christians out protesting them. It’s rather ironic, because usually it’s the atheists that protesting Christian monuments. Continue reading

Anyone Hear About This?: The San Francisco Transit Strike

Editor’s note: Thomas wrote this prior to the strike but I was too busy getting married to post this sooner. My bad. – Kelen

If anyone doesn’t keep up on the news, let me fill you in. The unions have threatened that the workers for San Francisco rapid transit may go on strike Monday, July 1st. As you read this, it may be a done deal and a strike is already occurring. The union represents more then 2400 train operators, station agents, mechanics, professional staff and maintenance workers. The cause you might ask? Well, the union wants a 5 percent annual raise over the next three years. This is for operators and agents that average $71,000 a year. The answer was for an 8 percent annual raise over the next four years. Hmm, why am I talking about this? Continue reading

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – The Asinine Coverup

aaron-hernandez-arrested
Trying to digest all the asininity of the past week or so would give any man a monster stomach ache. Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo fight back potential ulsers for your listening pleasure.

Since you last heard from your favorite sports genius’, the Miami Heat and Chicago Blackhawks have won another title each, a draft took place that makes no damn sense, a marquee franchise has thrown its hands in the air and decided to scrap it all, the Lakers have began creepily attempting to lure Dwight Howard back, and oh yeah, a professional athlete was charged with murder. Excited? Well you should be. This is guaranteed to equal talk show gold.

Aaron Hernandez has gone from All-Pro tight end and future of the New England Patriots to gangster buffoon in what seems like a blink of an eye. Now that he’s been arrested, his bail has been denied, and he’s in jail awaiting trial, how will this all play out? With so much circumstantial evidence and by all accounts the worst coverup imaginable, does Hernandez have a prayer to ever see the light of day again? Keeping track of all the tentacles of this saga is impossible.

Doc Rivers is now leading the Clippers, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are in Brooklyn, all while Ray Allen is soaking up his second ring. A funnier script to the end of the Boston Celtics as we knew them isn’t possible. Was there a trade winner?

“As The Dwight Howard Turns” soap opera has another chapter. ¬†While he ponders where to sign, the Lakers have begun pathetically begging him to stay, including hanging a giant sign stating “STAY D12″ outside their arena. Should Dwight consider an LA return?

Oddly on the back burner, will the futures of the Heat and Blackhawks see more championships?

All the asininity is cleaned up, as the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
