Every year, hundreds of swimmers unexpectedly get caught in riptides and must fight strong currents to survive. On this week's A Kind Voice on Sports, Bill Piedra discusses Ryptide, a Kickstarter project that began when Bill was introduced to a high school robotics class by their teacher. Their collaboration resulted in the birth of Ryptide, an innovative combination of a drone and a life preserver delivery system. Tune in to find out about this potential life-saving device, the people behind its creation, and more about Bill. The Call In lines will be open during the live show on Wednesday at 7 pm EST at (347) 850-8907.
Hosted by Elisia Owens Mumford

Yes, we know y'all's marriage is "Heaven on Earth", but here is a Male listener's woes....
"My wife of 6 years is a stranger to me! I don't think I really know her anymore. We are both from very affluent families and God has been very good to us. We connected through mutual friends from our circle of wealthy friends, dated and then got married. 3 years ago, my job transferred me to Texas from Nigeria and we both came out here.
Since we're here without family and the kind of lifestyle we lived in Lagos is totally different from the one here, it's seems like I never knew what my wife could or could not do as the woman of the house. Pardon me, but you are a lady, answer me this, Do you soak underwears for a weak?? My wife does this and it baffles me! She doesn't cook, she insists we eat out or order delivery food everyday, the house is always in disarray and I have tried so many times to talk with her but she says she is used to a certain way of life no can't just change.
You see while we were in Lagos, we had access to family and house helps, drivers etc, now she is calling for the same lifestyle here in Texas! Yes the job pays well but I think we could put the money to other use for the family eg, investment opportunities.
Please help me, I love my wife, she is a very nice lady, caring and loving but this lazy side of her, I do not understand!" Thanks, I'll listen in on Tuesday.
There we have it folks!!! Let, help a brother out.... Join us at 8pm, let's swap tales

Damon Dash was on The Breakfast Club about 2-3 weeks ago. There was a conversation about being your own boss or working for someone else. It was brought to my attention, when I watch the interview, forward to me by a Brotha, they had with Dr.Boyce Watkins. I heard them mention the interview and it seems as though he was brought in to clean up what he had said. He was speaking about having, "f-you money". He understands what he was saying, but for those who are not in his situation should save to reach that.
I did not have a chance to view Dash's interview, but another Brotha forward it to me. He was on point! I did not get offended when he made the statement, "calling somebody your boss, is like calling that person your daddy". He is correct, no matter if you like his delivery or not. Black people need to start developing this mentality or instill it in your kids.
So it has been a minute since I had TWO guest on the same show,but I LOVE WGEN I DO THAT!!!!!!!!!! To close out March I thought I would give u something quite special,and so I will...I welcome Comedian Marcus"Poke" Miles and Poet/Author Captain Gimpy!!!!!!!! Let me tell ya'll something....it is GOING DOWN this episode...
Ronald Brady, also known as Captain Gimpy, is a published author who recently made his poetic debut at the Brickhouse Gallery in Sacramento. He is a poet and author who has maintained the blog called "Musings of a Digital Vagabond," where the seeds of his book "The GImpy Monologues," were sown.
Marcus “POKE” Miles, a stand-up comedian from Richmond, California with a direct and fiery delivery of up to date events and up to date topics that everyone can relate to. Poke’s goal in comedy is to be able to make any audience laugh as well as be able to bring a funny from subjects that most people think of but may be uncomfortable to speak about out loud in public. Poke’s influence of comedy is Richard Pryor, Dennis Leary, and Eddie Murphy.
On this edition of the Rod Eccles Show, Rod delves into the mindset behind the Germanwings jet crash in France. Not just the co-pilot but all the post 9/11 thoughts that eventually allowed this to happen. There is more news on the Global Warming front and even Ted Cruz takes a plunge into the contentious waters. The FBI and ATF drone scandal or is it a scandal at all. Plus the anticipated Major Announcement and a whole lot more. Don't miss a single minute.
Join us for important up-to-date information on the attempts in Florida to restrict anchoring!
Florida Senate Bill 1548 titled “An Act Related to Vessel Safety”, addresses many valid safety issues related to the anchoring of derelict boats. However, it also contains controversial proposals limiting boaters’ ability to anchor in areas “within 200 feet of developed waterfront property” from one hour past sunset until one hour before sunrise.
The Seven Seas Cruising Association leads a team that includes AGLCA, BoatUS and the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) in the fight against pending restrictions on the right to anchor in Florida.
Joining us to talk about SSCA and their efforts in Florida is Dave Skolnick. Dave is a naval architect and marine engineer, a communications professional, and the immediate Past President of SSCA. He works as a member of the SSCA Concerned Cruisers' Committee (CCC) to support cruisers' rights. Dave owns Auspicious Works in Annapolis, Maryland providing communications and navigation equipment services and delivery support to cruisers.
We'll also be joined by David Doyle, an AGLCA member who is a waterfront landowner in Florida. He'll share his opinion on the issue.
Lots to talk about in this episode, with four - yep, four - interviewees.
Thomas D'Arcy's latest full-length, Fooled You Twice, dropped in early March and since, it's been getting a lot of positive attention. New Canadian Music, for example, said, "Pop craftsman Thomas D'Arcy is at his melodic and catchy best on second solo record Fooled You Twice." Mike chats with Thomas about the album and a lot more.
Luke Nicholson's Frantic City is his most poignant album to date. Having written the majority of material for this record while touring away from his new born daughter, one can hear the love, and maturity in both his lyrics and delivery. He's also launched an interesting new contest we'll chat about.
Mike also catches up with Toronto's Rebel Hero, a funk-rock trio with an impressive resume that's taking part in the April 4, 2015 edition of Generation Next Live at the Phoenix.
Finally, we speak with musician, engineer, producer, and studio owner Mike Saracino about his new initiative, The Globe Series, which takes him around the world to record on-the-rise musicians and spawn international collaborations.
Bishop Noel Jones Some may know him as "Bishop," others as an astute intellectual, a columnist, prolific orator, theatrical producer, and still others as a beloved father, grandfather and loyal friend. No matter your point of reference, there are few places you will travel on this side of heaven without hearing the great name of Bishop Noel Jones. Bishop Jones was born in Spanish Town, Jamaica on January 31, 1950. One of seven children born to Bishop Robert and Marjorie Jones, Noel Jones was raised alongside a diverse array of siblings (one of whom is the famed actress and singer Grace Jones). He once mused, "If I could reconcile and keep peace among us, I can reconcile the Church through the power of God." Add to this skill of mediation, a strict rearing under Pentecostal tenets, and the enduring of an early childhood abuse, and it should become increasingly clear why God called Bishop Jones into the ministry at the tender age of nineteen. His experiences nurtured his unique call to the ministry of reconciliation and honed his distinct ability to transcend tradition in his delivery of the gospel, through widening spiritual parameters in order to reach diverse people of manifold backgrounds, cultures, and denominations.
