Some of the topics which may or may not be discussed are homeopathy, Lawrence Durrell, magic as in performing magic(stage stuff, sleight of hand, etc) various esoteric topics such as astrology, (maybe even a call-in from an alchemist!), firearms, poker, markets, and of course nothing can be talked about without politics being involved, but this will not be a political blog, per se. Hope that is diverse enough for you.

This is like it sounds, but what a treat to have Wolfman back as a guest, as we all recall the national news story from a few months back about local law enforcement coming down hard on some motorcycle club bad guys, or, were they? Wolfman informs us of the actual facts on this as seen from his local viewing situation. Of course, there is the usual chatting about what's been going on in his neck of the woods and various other asides and diversions, and we ultimately of course have to laugh...

011 - My New Orleans Guest Talks Of Jazz Fest

5/5/2015
More
This week I am honored to have my old friend Enola Virus call in for the first time, and I have anointed him the podcast's official New Orleans correspondent. I recommend this episode to everyone of course, but especially if you have any interest in New Orleans, it's culture, and of course The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, which has been around awhile, and is so big now it's almost ridiculous. Enola Virus was born and raised in New Orleans so knows a lot about all this shit. We...

In this week's episode, after I promo a few upcoming guests, I mention how I foolishly missed the big podcasting conference which was just miles away, and lament about the Nepal earthquake tragedy and the avalanche on Everest. Then, trying to lighten the mood, going over big news since last podcast, I find myself feeling compelled to mention Baltimore but of course I "move on" quickly. Then I get into the meat of the show, talking about the big fight this weekend between Mayweather...

On this week's episode, after I teasethat I will probably have my New Orleans friend(s) on as guests soon, I begin by revisiting the Joe Rogan podcasts, which I mentioned last week, why I like them even though it can sometimes morph into "weed-head talk," (and happy 4/20 to all) and also Jim Norton'sappearance on the last episode (Rogan's, not mine.) I complain a bit about my annoyance with commercials on all media, and somehow start talking about the movieMy Dinner With Andre,and make...

I begin the show by mentioning I had a long, thoroughly enjoyable phone chat with 2 of my friends from New Orleans, and how great it would be if either or both individually or together agree to do a call in guest/co-host podcast with me. One of them recommended the TV seriesJustifiedto me, and this gets me into a bit of tech talk about streaming media, why I canceled sling TV for now, and my short take on "net neutrality." I explain how I didnotgo to the Steely Dan show Saturday night. I...
