On May 19, 2018 we went on Facebook Live to speak with our audience and the public, addressing your questions on the issues that matter to you. Talking about the Santa Fe school shooting and how to fix school shootings. We talked about the changes to the character of Lando Calrissian by Disney. Plus a bit of a recap of the SUNY Broome Homeless Awareness Sleepout that I was the featured speaker. A lot of real world real people interaction on issues that can't be resolved in a meme or 30 second soundbites. It was a great discussion.

We have a full episode in discussing waterboarding, Gina Haspell, and Green Beret Ted Kennedy. Then we gp on to cover Gov. Andrew Cuomo and how the 2nd conviction of Sheldon Silver applies to him. We travel overseas to consider the mass shooting in Australia and the knife attack in Paris - which some promise could never happen. Finally we look into the credibility (or lack thereof) of Freedom Checks and the company behind the ad. End song - Let's Grow Old - by Adam Ate the Apple, album No Flying Cars, track 8.

 

** Correction - in the podcast Green Beret Tim Kennedy was incorrectly called Ted. We apologize for the error. **

We cover a ton of issues in this simulcast via Facebook Live. As the title notes, your questions are answered and we discuss the topics of the day in more detail than just 30 second soundbites. Like how effective is Peace through Strength? What is the Logan Act and does it apply to John Kerry? Why are people still using heroin? What can we learn from the school shooting in Palmdale CA? Plus the 9th Annual SUNY Broome Homeless Awareness Sleepout on May 18th. And so much more. Listen and share. End song - On the Radio - by Adam Ate the Apple, Album - No Flying Cars, track 4.

Simulcast live on Facebook - this episode highlights the numerous questions that come from listening to what candidate Anthony Brindisi has been saying publicly. From Questions about tax increases, the impact of casinoes in NYS, to the influence of Nancy Pelosi, it seems there are no answers to be had. But what does that mean for the NY-22 race? Also, we discuss the extremes being used against Kanye West to ensure no other Person of Color dares to do as he has done.  Do let us know if you like our music by Adam Ate the Apple - the No Flying Cars album

The 2018 mid-term election, and local NY elections, are heating up early this season (unlike the weather). But already there are serious facts being denied the public, and important questions are going unanswered. From across the country, in Congress and in City Council, details that will affect your life are going unspoken - which never bodes well for the public. Listen, comment, like and share.

** Correction - In the podcast it was misstated that 179 Democrats and 6 Republicans voted against H.J. Res. 2 - the correct numbers (as provided by Govtrack) are 178 Democrats and 6 Republicans.  **

The interview was at Strange Brew, located in Downtown Binghamton, on April 15th. We have requested an interview with Assemblywoman Lupardo as well.
