If Trump Is Guilty, The Election Decides The Jury: Ep. 110

Megan comes back and we read a comment from Facebook Live user asking about her.

Our engineer tells us a guy is on the “show line” asking if we could bring him on the air to promote his website. He’s a professional lifeguard who has guarded in hotel and commercial swimming pools as well as along the Atlantic Ocean. (Jerry Springer has lifeguard friends, Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff, and we’ve had Jerry’s swimming pool pic on our own website, so he’s versed in this subject.)

We bring him on asking our live stream listeners and Facebook Live viewers to shoot questions right now to

This guy, Dr. Gregory Schrand,, also holds a PhD in Medieval Literature.

We urge the audience to go to our website and view Jerry’s TV commentary, now running on all our social media.

Jerry’s Take: If Trump is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors, the 2018 election will decide the jury.

The Best Springer Story Ever: Ep. 107

Jene and Megan comment obliquely on the story Jerry told us at last week’s production dinner, and it is likely the best Springer story we’ve ever heard, rivaling the one where Jerry peed all over himself in an Italian restaurant bathroom.

Jene says he’s gotten attacked by corporate for reading what they think might be “fake” emails to the show. He denies that but then reads two emails he says we’ve received and challenges Jerry and Megan to tell which one is fake and which is real.

Last spring we went on Jerry’s dime to Cuba to do a podcast. Jene and Megan beseech Jerry to now pay for all of us to go into orbit where we could do the first podcast in space.

Jerry’s rant: Jerry gives Trump praise (!) for standing up against legislators trying to repeal LGBT non-discrimination laws.

Paul Stookey of Peter Paul and Mary: Ep. 106

We’re joined this episode by Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul and Mary.

Their group, which carried on the tradition of roots music from people like Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger and the Weavers, moved folk music into the mainstream during the 1960s and 70s with such songs of conscience as Blowing in the Wind, If I Had a Hammer, Where Have All the Flowers Gone, El Salvador, The Times They Are a Changing, etc.

Talking to Paul is part of our podcast’s effort to keep story and message alive through generations.
