MIKE’s DAILY PODCAST 805 The News Show

MIKE’s DAILY PODCAST effizode 805

Today we hear the return of the much loved segment NEWS RANDOM where we look at some very interesting news stories that you haven't heard yet.  PLUS, we hear from Madame Rootabega, Valentino, and Bison Bentley!  And Vampire Bat Drones?  Do those turn into Vampire Drones?  Do I need to by my movie ticket now to see a Cyborg Twilight?  (The answer to that is always no—just say "no" to bad acting!)

Yes, it's been a long time since the last "effizode."  It's been a busy couple of weeks and I was not able to take you to THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH.  Then, after a certain amount of time, self doubt took effect.  What am I doing?  Why am I doing this?  And then I realized I HAVE to do this.  I am an independent DIY podcast creator and my show is NOT heard on any radio station beforehand.  I originally championed podcasting because I thought of it as a way people could make their unique voices heard.  Then radio stations and "podcast networks" began podcasting and it made this medium less about the individual and more about the big name corporations: the ESPN sports, the Nerdist Networks, the NPR shows.  And god, why did Serial get so big when it was also from a corporate machine (This American Life aka American Public Media aka Garrison Keillor).  What about the kids in their basementS producing shows?  What about the independent podcasters?  Please listen to them first and foremost.  I have resurrected my drive to podcast!  I am doing this for the INDEPENDENT VOICE!

Next show I'll have a very special guest plus we'll hear from Chely Shoehart, Floyd the Floorman, and John Deer the Engineer!
