Coming up in a few minutes (2:30pmEST), the live broadcast of Left Ahead where we will talk with Michael J. Widmer, who heads up the no-on-1 people. You can listen live (or catch the archive later at our website).
Today we’re doing ENDA (read up here) with two guests of opposing viewpoints regarding the lack of language to include transgendered people. Both guests are frequent commenters at BMG, Laural and Migraine.
Left Ahead this week is today, 2:30 pm (in 5 minutes) and we’re talking today with Mr. Richard Howe, Jr., where the topic will likely focus on the special election primary scheduled for next Tuesday!
I’m ‘podding and packing, should be interesting.
Today’s Friday the 13th, but I’ve never really had a problem with it (I think that if you try hard enough to believe you’ll have an unlucky day, you make it happen yourself). But anyway, tune in to the show at 10am, we’ll have Victoria Fahlberg, Executive Director of the immigrant advocacy group, One Lowell. We’ll talk about the upcoming ONE Lowell World Cup, an amazing soccer tournament and cultural festival happening right here in Lowell, and about the issues facing immigrants to Lowell and the US.
Tonight we start our podcast at 8pm, and Jamie will be on at 8:30 or so. We at Left Ahead endorsed Jamie last week, though that won’t stop us from asking the tough questions. (You hear that Jamie? The tough questions!) We will try to wring as much detail on the issues we ask about as we can (since all we bloggers do is complain about the lack of such in the MSM). You can listen live to the stream, or can catch the archive afterwards! Links to do either will be found at Left Ahead.
Our Left Ahead weekly podcast is online and you can listen here. It features me being late (I was absorbed in accounting and taxes, then couldn’t find my call-in number, ug), Mike, Ryan and I talking about the special MA-05 and this weekend’s candidate forum, and some ranting about ballot initiatives. Also, our new weekly segment Blog of the Week, where we highlight our favorite blog posts.
In case you honestly can’t get enough jabber from me on my Friday WUML program, I’ve been dragged in–er, joined with Ryan and Mike to start a weekly audio podcast called “Left Ahead.” Our first “webisode” is available for easy listening.
Predictably, the first ‘cast is a lot of navel-gazing and talking about bloggers and Teh Media. Never fear, that’s typical for a first go on these things. It’ll get less meta pretty quick (we get bored talking about ourselves all the time anyway).
All I can say is, I don’t remember and cannot be blamed for anything I said earlier in our conference-call-style conversation; I was completely drunk. Just kidding.
Drunk political blogger podcasts. Hmm. That idea could catch on!
