The Jerry Springer Podcast: Tales, Tunes and Tomfoolery is a weekly mix of comedy, liberal political talk and roots music performed by up and coming song writers and groups. Jerry is joined by Jene Galvin and Megan Hils as they compare their dissimilar lives, convo about events of the day and occasionally welcome a phone guest, some real and others you wonder. Like State Senator Tip Kemper, who recently proposed a literacy bill requiring citizens to read a book a month and submit a written report to the government at the post office. But in the middle of each episode, Jerry shows his serious side with a unique take on a current political or social issue drawing from his years as Cincinnati's mayor and top ranked news anchor. Performed before a small audience at the Folk School Coffee Parlor in Ludlow, Kentucky, The Jerry Springer Podcast is live streamed at jerrryspringer.com and Facebook Live and archived on the podcast's website and all major podcast apps. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Walker's Candidacy Is An Assault on Black Americans Dignity
We’ve been doing this show for years now, right? I had my people go back through the archives and tally up the number of times the word Trump was spoken. Let’s go around the table and see who can guess the number. If you are a Facebook live viewer right now, put your guess in the comment section.
We are now deep into the prime sports season with football and basketba...

Republicans Have No Moral Compass
Republicans will vote for any Republican regardless of moral character or competence. There are no lines they won't cross if what's at stake is the next election. Herschel Walker has no more business being a United States senator than a twelve year old in terms of ability and knowledge. Georgia's election shouldn't even be close. If you're a Republican, wouldn't this be a goo...

What Would Jerry Do?
A Faustian bargain never ends well. Selling one’s soul for an earthly prize. So it won’t end well for Republicans who have sold their soul. That is any sense of honesty, morality, the Big Lie, to the extreme right wing empowered by Trump for a momentary victory in the primaries. A younger generation, indeed a multicultural one at that, is not likely to sign on what used to be a respected ...
Jerry talks about the passing of the queen and gets emotional talking about his extended family being exterminated by Nazis and his parents getting visas at the last second to escape into England. Which is where Jerry was born in a subway (or tube) that was being used as a bomb shelter.
The duality of the Monarchy as a symbol of racism and how it also during WWII brought England together when ther...
