Celebrating 5 years of the PhilCast

Wednesday, Oct, 15 2014

The PhilCast was born five years ago today, and I'll be playing some classic audio from way back when as part of the celebration on the show today.

This was me in the fall of 2009 in my basement studio podcasting what I basically called a radio show without a radio station at the time.

Then came WHBY, believers in not only me, but the power of LOCAL radio and the connection it makes with the community.

Thanks to all of you who have kept me as a part of your daily life for so many years.

And thanks to WHBY for believing.

Don't kill the dog

Tuesday, Oct, 14 2014

We used to have a dog like this, so maybe that's why I'm even more interested in this story.

Lets not follow the lead of Spain on this one.

Dallas health officials have decided not to kill the dog belonging to the nurse diagnosed with Ebola over the weekend, even though the dog belonging to the Spanish nurse with the disease was euthanized over concerns it could transmit the virus.


They say they'll care for the dog and monitor its condition.

Lets take a deep breath here and do the right thing. We don't need to be panic-killing animals.

At the cabin

Monday, Oct, 13 2014

Now this is what a cabin in the woods should look like!

Although I tease the owner, the PhilCast's very own jingle writer Kris Kraft, about how he and his wife Debbie are roughing it in the woods with wi-fi and cable.

Thank goodness for that cable, because it allowed me to watch part of the Packers' game on Sunday.

I was listening on the radio during the drive home when the magical final drive took place.

Wow.

Pack Yak leads off the show today, then 'HowzYer Weekend'....with stories from the trip. There are more pictures posted at the "Photo" page of thephilcast.com.

Don't tase me bro

CLICK HERE to watch the video from the story I'll talk about on the PhilCast today.



Where do you come down on this?

The back seat video shot by a kid shows the confrontation between police officers in Hammond, Indiana and the man in the passenger seat.

The asked him to exit the vehicle. He did not.

What happened next may have been inevitable.

Cops wrong?
Passenger wrong?

Court may have to decide now.
