    Actor/Writer/Director/Filmmaker Arthur Allen of "Winning Dad"

    in Current Events

    Nicholas Snow welcomes filmmaker Arthur Allen.  A Seattle native, Arthur graduated from the Great Books curriculum of St. John’s College, MD. After supporting himself for several years in the Seattle Theater Community (and washing windows in the Space Needle), in 2008 he joined the United States Merchant Marine where he wrote Winning Dad aboard the USNS Gilliland. In 2012 he was recruited by the WA United For Marriage coalition as part of its Speaker’s Bureau to campaign for marriage equality in Washington State. In 2012 he began working for an Arabic translation company, and represented the United States at the second Baghdad International Translation Conference in Baghdad, Iraq. Winning Dad is Arthur’s debut feature film.

    In Wining Dad, "Colby's dad knows his son is gay, but he doesn't like talking about it. He respects it, but ignores everything about that aspect of his son's life–he doesn't even know about Colby's long-term boyfriend, Rusty.  Increasingly committed to Rusty, Colby hatches a plan to trick his father into camping with Rusty under the pretense that Rusty is Colby's straight friend and future business partner. Colby is convinced that, given the chance, his father and his boyfriend will get along great."

    This episode's main sponsors are Desert AIDS Project and Lulu California Bistro.

  • S07/E12: "Moving Lips & Freudian Slips---Loose Lips Always Sink Ships"

    in Politics Progressive

    Is Joe Biden running for President in 2016 or is it too late for him?

    What really is Democratic Socialism? Can it or any other form of government, besides the one we have now, ever work in America?

    Another Benghazi Committee hearing on Capitol Hill on Friday, October 30th, 2015. The George W. Bush Administration had ILLEGALLY deleted 22 milion e-mails off government property. Nobody battered an eye lid. Madam Secretary Clinton deleted hers too. And, after a thorough investigation by various Congressional Committees and the FBI, it was concluded that no wrong doing had occured. At the cost of $4.5 million wasted to "investigate" Hillary Clinton, the witch hunt by Republicans continue. Majority Leader, Rep. Andrew McCarthy(R-California), admitted on Fox News that the Committee was specifically set up to derail Madam Secretary's presidential ambitions and ruin her credibility. He failed miserably. 

    Did Rep.Trey Gowdie(R-South Carolina) needle Hillary Clinton to try to catch her in a lie so they can impeach and send her to prison. Former aides & insiders are coming out publicly saying what the sociopaths in the Republican Conference are doing. Instead of these witch hunts, wouldn't it be great if they actually did some work on behalf of America? Aren't you sick of it yet? 

    Who won the 1st Democratic debate and why? Need more debates?
