–Bobby wants to kick off the show talking about how, last week, he got his car stuck on a flooded street. Bad news is, he had to wait in the rain for 90 minutes, and the car isn’t quite the same. The good news is he’ll never try to gun the engine through water again.
–About this time, Bobby’s wife hollers down that she needs Bobby’s help. While gone, Jason attempts to keep the show afloat by talking about what he hears going on upstairs, and “teasing” upcoming topics. Around 10 minutes later, Bobby comes back to reveal that one of his dogs had a nice walking pee throughout the house.
–Bobby reveals that he has recently discovered some heart-related issues that potentially are very serious. It started Thursday evening when he had an episode which saw his resting heart rate top out at 192. He has seen a doctor, and is now waiting to hear back from a cardiologist. Scary stuff.
–In better news, it turns out Bobby will be heading back to Florida after all, albeit for just a 3-day weekend. Still, he’ll take it.
–We spend some time on the mass shooting at a Texas church that happened during last week’s podcast. Jason talks about seeing an interview with Stephen Willeford, the man who grabbed his own AR-15 and engaged the killer. A very harrowing story, to be sure. This leads us into talking about gun homicides in general. Because the truth is, while mass shootings get much of the press, they represent a very small fraction of the overall gun-related homicides in this country.
–Jason has been finding out lately that many of his favorite entertainers are predatory perverts, whether it’s Bill Cosby, Kevin Spacey, or now Louis CK. And again, Jason is hammering on the idea that good men are failing women by not doing more to protect and defend them. But we’re also confused by how so many people seem to know about these stories, since they go back years, yet little has ever been done until it becomes a big story.
