    OH MTG: “Mommy With A Penis” Blog Virtuoso: Hutchins Foster

    in Lifestyle

    Join your cocktail deprived host MTG, colorful co-host Tuffet Schmelzle and our featured guest, the delightfully charming blog virtuoso of mommywitha.blogspot.com, Hutchins Foster. MTG opens the show with “Tuffet’s World” - discussing some of the hottest headlines of the week: Michael Dunn Trial Verdict and Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law.

    Tuffet has cooked up this week’s Winter Olympics themed “Word Up!” list and MTG is going for the gold. MTG delights Tuffet with this week’s “Shitz and Giggles (or Crap That Makes You Laugh)” segment with the weird-but-true story, “Jason Willis Banned From Internet For Sending Naked Man To Neighbor”.

    Featured guest, Hutchins Foster is an actor by trade, writer by necessity, and an epileptic by concussion. He met the love of his life in a seedy gay bar in Brooklyn over twelve years ago. They’ve been married twice. First, spiritually, and then legally in California. He and his husband have adopted two children, resulting in Hutch putting his classical theatre training to good use by cooking firm food for his family and unclogging toilets.

    “Chat Time” covers Kansas House Bill 2453 that discriminates against gay couples and the powerful blowback from social media. We delve into Hutch’s adventurous “Bucket List” that has him skydiving, scuba diving, bungee jumping and composting.

    This week’s “JUST THE TIP” segment helps us to get our act together: “Top 10 Ways To Make Your Day More Productive”. We close the show with our JUKEBOX 5 segment that’s all about taking control and living a truly authentic life.
