The Rotunda #215 11/18/19 - This episode touches on two things that we all love - sports and politics! We have Lawton Swann in the second segment to talk Tigers football, as the defending National Champions gear up for the stretch run of their title defense. The third segment features Robert Paquin III telling us about his revolutionary new platform Politifunds, and how is can get more people involved in, and invested in, the political process. I also talk a little bit about Don Cherry's gaffe and someone who clearly overreacted to it, and it's all right here!!
The Rotunda #214 11/11/19 - How do you feel about where we stand in the world? Good? Bad? Indifferent? Kevin DeJesus stars in the third segment as we talk Syria, trade deficits and other topics relating to America's recent changes in foreign policy. A great segment that you definitely do not want to miss!
We also get caught up on the recent revelation that NYC has been sending some of their homeless population to other states - including Rhode Island - without even a heads-up. While everyone should agree that we need to help those less fortunate, is it really ethical to 'send their problems' elsewhere? And, what does it say about NYC's finances that they are taking these steps? There's also an analysis on the GOP cancelling presidential primaries, Tulsi putting the panel on The View in their place, and talk about why bullying needs to be taken much more seriously today than it has in the past.
As an end cap, Joe Ferro hits me up in the fourth segment to talk about (and mock) my beloved Cleveland Browns

Your political appetite gets satisfied once Ray Davis calls in for the third segment to talk about the Tulsi Gabbard campaign, and why the media and the 2016 Democrat nominee seem to have it in for her.
