It's a brief holiday episode, one where I intended to seed January discussion & spread holiday cheer...but damn, what a few weeks we've had in the news.Impeachment - A great topic no matter what time of year it is, particularly when you have a narcissistic, authoritarian tyrant at the center of it.  One who is often the first to document his own crimes inadvertently through his “great and unmatched wisdom”.  Carnac the shitty POTUS.I wish I could ignore it, but I can't.The Illusion of Privacy & The Great HackI've been dropping the name for weeks.  Cambridge Analytica.  "That's old news Larry!".  I know, but so many of you were just as oblivious then as you are now...and it's even worse now, despite so many advancements we've made to help you protect yourself.January Topical Links:The Great Hack documentary, NetflixAmazon & Under Attack by privacy activists over recent incidents.Ratio of CCTV cameras to U.S. citizensIdentifying & Tackling Manipulated Media, a primer from Reuters & the Facebook Journalism ProjectFinland is making its online AI crash course free to the worldNY Times Special Feature - Opinion: Twelve Million Phones, One Dataset, Zero PrivacyListen, these aren't funny subjects.  In fact, nothing funny at all about them, IMHO, which is why I'm pushing them off until January, 2020.  Do yourself a favor...Disconnect for the HolidaysAt the very least, change your focus.  Drop the tech sh** and national & global issues for a few, and focus on those that matter most to you.  Spend time with those you love.  Hug more.  Ski, hike, jump out of a plane...whatever & whomever you them & it more this holiday season.You'll be glad you did.Be safe out there doing it, my friends.  Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!  😎❤️ Support the show (

Out soon, released early...but incomplete. My apologies to my planned guests for episode 2, I assure you I will include you in Episode 3.Essentially, interrupted by life and idiots, the latter of which I've jetisoned by deleting my Twitter & Facebook accounts.Sorry to those I love, to those who actually care.  If you know me, you know I am all about integrity...and I hate saying I'm going to do something, and not coming through.  Ask anyone.If you've enjoyed the show, keep listening.  We'll be creating.  Moving forward as planned...without social media.If you're a loved one, whether family or friend, I couldn't possibly be easier to reach.  It's been that way since analog pagers, so you're not trying very hard if you can't find me.  I love you all.  I do not give a shit if we're "friends" on social media.  I appreciate my friends in real life.Until next time, maybe.  All the best.Support the show (
Calling a thought in from a quick break from work, as I have no idea how I'm going to find time to keep up my current schedule...let alone my hobby.  (Sorry for the quality of the call)Thinking we may go to one episode per month.  Next one should be out mid-March, then likely another early-to-mid April.Unfortunately, the vast majority of my schedule is out of my hands.  Like travel.  Ugh.Anyway, we're not going anywhere...just trying to find time for the people & things we love most, like all of you. More soon.Be great, and do great things my friends!Support the show (

Sorry for the delay with episode 3, I've been busy spending time with those I love most.  Lots of transition going on in everyone's lives, which is so exciting...even more so now that I have the time and ability to focus on helping some of them more.It's only fair.  They're the ones who helped me become me.Some of you are in that group too, so thanks for that.  Looking forward to getting back to the rythm I had going for a couple months with the show, prior to release, soon.  Likely won't be until after the first of the year, but always doing my best & sending love, my friends.Make it a great day!Support the show
Michigan State Univeristy Libraries houses a phenomenal collection of audio recordings from Presidents of The United States throughout history, including the oldest known recordings done by Edison himself.Here's one from my main man, Teddy.Talk about going off grid.  This guy was the King of off grid.  Target of the largest monopolies, pigeonholed into Vice Presidency.  Shot before giving a speech, went on with it anyway.Surely Carnac the Shitty POTUS supporters will find some way to interpret this as supporting their lunacy, but...Really listen to Teddy.  Hear the passion in his voice, then pull your head out of your ass...and listen again.  Hope you had an amazing Christmas surrounded by love my friends, regardless of your political affiliation.  Sending love, always. 😎❤️ Support the show (
I don't even know what to say.  This wasn't planned.  This just happened.  No script.  No planning.  Freestyle.  A few quick edits, and straight to your ears.  Hope you enjoy.  Personally, my jaw dropped.  I listened repeatedly.  I can't even describe the emotion, but I did cry as I was mixing this.  I was also smiling ear-to-ear the entire time. ❤️This, my friends, is "Chosen" from The TruthMusic - "PTSD" - composed by DeMarcus Morgan, mixed by Larry C.Support the show
You might've known it was coming, with the 18+ restrictions and all.  I swear in this!  A brief parody infomercial, the kind of which I'll provide to patrons only after we launch. :)Hope it makes a few smile.  Thanks for listening and be sure to check out our first full episode dropping November 2nd at  Support the show
