I mix politics (or the trappings of politics), cookies, and conversation on the porch.

  • Punching a skylight in the studio
  • Debate frenzy: 100 tickets v. 43,000 requests, presidential cookie poll, Chelsea Clinton ikes my favorite taco place, debate watching, political debates as show business, Obama-rama, and a little remote audio from a great big rally.
  • Music contest, week 3
  • Podcasts taking over your life
  • On the porch with Frank: cats frolic, Dice and the iPod, projects proliferate, wine is good, vegetable weekends.
  • Feedback city

Shopping Trip

Show segments are over-rated. The mark of a true podcaster is the ability to assemble unrelated bits into something like a show..at least that’s what I’m going to tell myself this week.

  • A tech tangent: soft tech news
  • Home for geriatric cats: Frank loves Ivar, Shelly loves Gremlin, queen of the universe
  • Shopping in the ‘burbs, girls and boys in Breed Hardware, my drinking hobby, Costco random goodness
  • Finally made it to the Rachel Maddow Show
  • Music contest, week 3
  • Prez candidates come to Austin
  • Listener feedback
