Always Look on The Bright Side of Life

If you’ve heard the latest Podcast episode, you know I’m taking a medical leave for a few months for health reasons. I’ve had my diagnosis, chemo and radiation, recovery, and surgery prep over the last 4 months. We didn’t talk about it on the show. It gave me something fun and normal to do with my friends

State of Play

State of Play

Greetings from Vermont.  Writing you a short blog tonight instead of our Bob and Zip Show podcast. We will miss our Wednesday episode, returning on Friday. Lisa and I just watched a movie on Netflix. Which is a bit unusual these days, as we typically binge watch...

About ‘You Gotta Wash Your Hands’ & Call to Action!!

We live in Vermont, where Lisa and I met before my radio career took off. It’s quiet. No traffic. We garden, make maple syrup, and fly to LA as often as we can to enjoy our grandchildren. Only not now. I saw an article the other day that said the Georgia Satellites...

Trust But Verify

Trust But Verify

“Trust, but verify” is a Russian proverb. I never knew that. I thought it was a Ronald Reagan quote. President Reagan used it on multiple occasions in the context of nuclear disarmament. Played well for the home crowd, but it was really a message to Russia that he…

I Learn More From Fiction

I Learn More From Fiction

Lisa and I just binge watched a new Netflix show called “Dead to Me”. I won’t reveal any spoilers, but I can say that it’s unlike any other dark drama or comedy ever made. The creator calls it a “Traumedy”.

Better Than Me

Better Than Me

I’m not naturally talented. If you ask me why I had a somewhat successful career, I would have to say it’s because I went out of my way to surround myself with people who were better than me. I got lucky, in that a higher power or dumb luck kept sending them my way….

All At Your Fingertips

All At Your Fingertips

When’s the last time you visited a public library? You know, the brick and mortar kind, in your local community? Maybe it’s been awhile, and maybe you’ve already guessed that I’m going to compare it to the internet. Do you have any idea why and for how long free...

Facebook In The Crosshairs – Part 2

Facebook In The Crosshairs – Part 2

About 5 years ago, while teaching at Green River College, I polled journalism students about where they get their news. Facebook was number one, handily beating all other media. And, since algorithms rule, any newspaper or TV show that wants subscribers or viewers...
