Episode 163 - My Well-Regulated Mansplanation

I casually mentioned on Twitter that the late Chief Justice Warren Berger was wrong about the Second Amendment.  And he was, indirectly.  I got jumped on with both feet by someone with lots more followers than me.  And when I responded without fawning, Twitter decided I must be hacked and took me offline.

So here's my well-regulated "mansplanation" of what I'd only suggested I might say before.  It's not as articulate as it might be, and I didn't make an effort to respond to the million-follower trolls and flamewars in detail.  Just said my piece in 10 minutes or so, and stopped.

It's a discussion we damn well better have now, while we still can.  As some old white guy once said.

Episode 162 - The Everlasting Man by G. K. Chesterton - Part I Chapter VII The War of the Gods and Demons

Got the Karaoke machine working.  Turned out I simply needed to unplug and reseat the cable from the machine to the mixer, and it seems fine now.  Here's hoping.  And then The Everlasting Man...

Episode 161 - The Everlasting Man by G. K. Chesterton - Part I Chapter VI The Demons and The Philosophers

Just a brief mention of trying to get my Karaoke machine working for singing in Second Life.  And I forgot to mention the new logo, based on a gift from a fan (on Second Life, dunno if he listens here)... which as you can see is gorgeous!

Recorded this episode and this chapter of Everlasting Man on the Blue Yeti.  Better?  Took six hours to edit, especially the traffic noises.

Episode 160 - Critical Precedents

About that iPhone encryption thing... Was listening to Leo LaPorte et al on This Week in Google 341, after so many other discussions of the Apple dispute with the FBI over access to the content of the one particular iPhone, and Leo made a passing comment about how some people think phones ought to have special legal protections...  and I thought to myself, "you know, maybe they should!" 

So I spent a few minutes trying to explain off the cuff what I mean by that, why we are setting precedents now that will be critical for generations, well into the Singularity.  So listen in, bear with my pontification, and let me know what you think.

It's a discussion we damn well better have now, while we still can.

So, GRIZZLYSGROWLS.COM is back! And a brief discussion of what Podbusker and DigitalVoyageur mean.

And I added a new @BlueMicrophones Yeti which hopefully improves the sound.  Think I might do a review of the thing sometime.  Followed by...

Episode 157 - The Everlasting Man by G. K. Chesterton - Part I Chapter III The Antiquity of Civilization

Various growls about the Podcast Awards, the Survey, and a couple of "job offer" phishes I got, claiming to be from Australian energy companies.  Unfortunately no, I don't get to go to Australia.  And then, The Everlasting Man...

Episode 156 - Donors Choose some more!

Devoted the whole show to my reactivated Donor's Choose Giving Page including three new projects from Duluth:

Seating for Active Students

Classroom iPads

and

Flexible Seating to Complete Our Classroom

All three are from Piedmont Elementary, not too very far from where I went to elementary school.  They actually closed down all three of my elementary, junior high and high schools, so this was close.  Give early and give often!
