    Quit early.

    And what's so great about this TGIF celebration?  You can listen to their latest show as it streams live the very next morning beginning at 9am.!

    Start your Friday exit from wage-slavery with a good dose of chicanery and chutzpah.  I'll provide the audio intoxicants and smart-ass podcast talk from the best - Chuck Mertz and crew at Chicago's WNUR 89.3FM at  THIS IS HELL radio.

    From what they're all "about" page:

    " ... Each broadcast features long-form interviews with writers, thinkers and workers from around the world and across the spectrum of experience. Our interviews are built on research and critical analysis, not preconceived opinions or political agendas. This is Hell! is not a soap box, or a pulpit, or an audition for a corporate job somewhere. It’s a bar stool, three beers into a conversation with a fascinating stranger. It’s the news-stand of your dreams that would go broke in the real world. ..."

    Episode 113: Live at Foley's and #weirdbaseball

    in Baseball

    In the "Live at Foley's 2: Podcast Harder" edition, Jeffrey, Chris, and Greg are Live at Foley's. And podcasting (harder). After a brief soujorn into terrible 90's music, it's time to preview the Mets minor league affiliates, or at least drool over the St. Lucie roster. Next, Ted Berg from USA Today (?!) joins the show to discuss the magic of small sample sizes, Jeff Francoeur, and Taco Bell breakfast. Then, Jeffrey butchers the Shortstop Avenue Audio theme after three beers, but we discuss Wilmer Flores' woes and reconsider some recent e-mails. That should be it, but the Mets played an incredibly weird baseball game last night, so look for the hidden track where Greg and Jeff discuss weird defense, weird pitch selection, and weird baseball.

    From Emily to Maya to YOU! A Celebration of Women Poets!

    in Poetry

    March is National Women's History Month and the Power of Poetics Blogtalk Radio Show proudly celebrates the many women who shaped our world and changed the course of history through writing poetry. These women lifted their voices through their work to fight for rights, to be free of discrimination and stereotypes, to break free from the rules set forth by men, family, and society and to be themselves.  

    Please call-in and share poems written by your favorite women poets. Other options include sharing your own poetry or writing a companion piece to How To Be A RealWoman written by noted poet and author Valeri Beers (see, http://www.meetup.com/DC-Poetry-Project/events/221324965). The goal is to join us for an evening of great poetry!

    Today’s episode looks at: why ew need connections to people, places and things in our life to make life as full as possible. Expose yourself to new connections to improve the uverall quality of your life.
