They even burn incense so that the aroma of the store has a classic record store vibe.

What will Elon Musk do with Twitter? Why did he buy it?

Simply put, I don’t know. However, I am a fan of Elon Musk, and I am optimistic about the future of Twitter. It needed a reset.

Musk has often stated that he wants to champion “free speech” on the platform. Elon has suggested he would reconsider Twitter’s approach to content moderation and permanent bans from the platform, all of which could impact the political landscape. At t...

This episode was recorded live Friday October 14, 2022. I had several listeners come forward to share their opinions via the Wisdom app. The episode runs longer th...

It seems we are now on the precipice of a new medium. Twitter has incorporated Twitter Spaces into its app, the Wisdom app recently celebrated a one-year anniversary, and Fireside has the feel...

The Cleveland Browns are evidently standing behind the Deshaun Watson trade for the long haul. The Browns are not reconsidering the $230 million contract and do not want back the six draft picks they sent to the Houston Texans for Watson.

The commentary in this podcast covers two facets. One, the banter on social media and sports talk radio has been very much misguided regarding the various allegations that were put forth against Wa...

How important is it to zoom in on someone’s pain and suffering on live TV? Whether it is an accident or sports injury, the sensationalism of live TV is forgetting the human suffering that is playing out behind the images.

The tragedy of Anne Heche, whose rescue from a fiery crash played out on live TV and has been recirculated on social media, is a perfect example. Her final moments have been reduced to social media fodder at the e...

    The Piketon Massacre

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County.

As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
