  • Travel Show #2: Colombia: It Ain't Just Mountains!

    in Travel

    WEDNESDAY 9/23 at 9 PM EST!  Brad and I return for our second travel show.  I'm excited to discuss my recent findings, following my three-city voyage to the land of the mountains - Colombia.  It's a country that changes greatly by region, so we'll talk about the exciting big-city atmosphere of Bogota, the beach-oriented life in the up and coming Santa Marta, and the artsy loveliness of Ibague.  The country gets a bad rap to this day, so we'll discuss fact and fiction as well!


    I'm also looking forward to hearing about Brad Shilling's take on Panama and Costa Rica.  He visited both in a single trip during the summer.  We'll hear what he has to say, plus your calls at 646-721-9605.

    Life as a DEA agent & human trafficking survivor

    in Travel

    Today we will share the legacies of two individuals who have put themselves on the frontlines in the fight against the crimes of drug and human trafficking. Robert Mazur served 27 years as a Federal Special Agent for the IRS, Customs Service and Drug Enforcement Administration.  Five of those years were spent under-cover as Bob Musella, a high-rolling mob-connected big shot who infiltrated the criminal hierarchy of Colombia’s drug cartels.  Bob’s under-cover stings proved critical in the conviction of General Manuel Noriega and helped cripple an international multi-billion money laundering outfit that served drug lords like Pablo Escobar.  His book, The Infiltrator, provides vivid and nail-biting details about his life in the criminal under-world, including events that led to a $500,000 contract being placed on his head.


     


    More than three decades after India won freedom and independence from Great Britain, a little girl from the southern region of India was stolen from her family and became a slave.  She was seven years old.  She lost her home and her identity.  She kept only her first name – Rani. When Rani lost her value to her slave owner, he sold her to an American woman who thought she was legally adopting an orphan.  This adoption saved Rani’s life and the love and support she received in her new home has cultivated a commitment to become an advocate for the voiceless victims of human trafficking and a leader in the movement to end modern slavery.

    Missionary Shares Insights On Who Needs Jesus!

    in Christianity

    Welcome to another show! We took off the week of New Years due to so many people suffering from sickness, and trying to recover from Christmas! Is it not funny how so many fun things can leave you more worn out than your job! Many people talk of having to go back to work from a vacation to recover is a prime example of this! We pray that you had a blessed time with family during the holidays. We know that you will enjoy this show!


    We are bringing you a live church service from the Sanctuary of Nolensville. The parents of our new bass player are missionaries from Bogota Columbia. They brought a great message on how we sometimes judge who needs Jesus.  Like most things, when we look through our own eyes instead of spiritual eyes, we can get it wrong. 


    We want to remind people listening on their phone that the sound can overpower your phone speakers so that the sound is muffled. If you turn down your phone a little this can clear up the muffled sounds sometimes.  This was recorded from a live service on a small digital recorder so there may be some echo to the sound.  As always we open up the microphones at the end of the show so that you can ask questions or make a comment. Just push the number 1 on your phone and you will be identified by the last four digits of your phone number before we put you on the air.

    Is It Immigration Or An Invasion?

    in Politics Conservative

    This show is dedicated to: Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent Terry Watson was murdered on June 21, 2013 during an alleged robbery attempt in Bogota, Colombia. 


    Defending the Republic with Annie "The Radio Chick" and "Cool" Mike is an ongoing discussion of recent events, issues and the upcoming elections.


    Special Guest: Mike Cutler, http://www.MikeCutler.net


    "The immigration issue is so incredibly important to our nation and, while it is often portrayed as being of great concern to so-called political “Conservatives,” in my view, it must be of great concern to all Americans of all political perspectives and affiliations.  In fact, I have been a registered Democrat ever since I cast my first ballot as a college student.


    Democracy is supposed to be about discourse and the honest and open debate in which all perspectives are considered before critical decisions are made.  My goal is to provide the insight that I have acquired during my career which spanned some 30 years and continued through my interaction with politicians, journalists and others with whom I have interacted as an INS officer and since my departure from that agency and my involvement in Congressional hearings and media appearances."


    It's a battle of Conservative values and principles in defense of our Republic!


    You never know what we'll talk about: conservative, constitution, freedom, liberty, obama, tea party, gun control, republican, libertarian, stop white guilt, word
