Listen to the Jerry Springer Podcast Show



Jerry announces he’s retiring after 27 years from The Jerry Springer Show: Ep. 169

The Jerry Springer Show started in 1991, and is the second longest running daytime talk show next to Phil Donahue. Although the show will continue to air, what’s in store for what Jerry may do next?

Jene talks about how this Jene Genkins guy, testing the senate waters in Kentucky, is copying off a political candidate we’ve had on the show before, State Senator Tip Kemper for daring political ideas.

Jerry’s Take: A compassionate society shouldn’t weaponize children by taking them away from their families. How can pro-family groups continue to support Trump when he and Jeff Sessions implemented this policy? Now there will be lawsuits because even though they’re allowing the families to stay together, you can’t keep a child in jail for more than twenty days. But because the courts are so far backed up, they can’t hear the cases before the twenty days are past.

Fake Blogs, Foreign Interference, and Made Up News: Ep. 168

Since it’s now summer, we check in with Ask the Lifeguard, of Jene read in a local paper from a South Carolina beach community that he got an employer reprimand for his negligent behavior during a dual rescue in a riptide. Apparently he’s doing required Medieval lectures from his lifeguard chair to beach patrons on his section of the beach at 9:00 am each day, and the incident stemmed from that.

Empathizing with NFL Player Protests: Ep. 167

Jene brings up his theory that God gives families a finite amount of creativity, and when they collectively use it up, it’s gone for good. Maybe that’s why Jene threw his brother Jerry Galvin under the bus during a recent lie detector test administered by the government.

Then, Jerry talks about how important it is to hear people out when they are protesting. In this particular case, Jerry empathizes with the plight of NFL players, constantly under fire from our president for protesting during the national anthem.

Is Trump’s Constantly Evolving Strategy Smart? Ep. 166

Jene reads a listener email about Unlimited Mileage.

Jene talks about how he wishes this could our summer of adventure for the Jerry Springer Podcast.

So he’s scouring the stories of modern adventurers at work this summer, like Jerome, who is riding his bicycle from Montreal, Canada to Tierra del Fuego, in Argentina. We talked to him a few weeks back.

Now he’s learned of Harvey Lewis, a high school teacher from urban Cincinnati who is not hiking but *running* the 2,100 miles of the Appalachian Trail in 45 days, in an effort to set the speed record (it normally takes 6 months). Why aren’t we out there making a mark on history? We talk to Harvey while he’s running down a mountain.

Then Jerry wonders – is it possible that President Trump’s seat-of-his-pants legal strategy is actually smart? Is it tougher to nail him down?

The 50th Anniversary of RFK’s Death: Ep. 165

Jene reads an email from a listener asking for another performance from The Jerry Springer Trio.

Jene explains how he and his wife were recently at a place called Findlay Market, in Cincinnati, and noticed buskers performing on sidewalks. Why don’t we do that some upcoming weekend?

Then, Jerry reflects on the legacy of Robert Kennedy, who died 50 years ago. Jerry was heavily influenced by Kennedy. After meeting him at a dinner party, Jerry signed on to work for his presidential campaign. What kind of man was RFK, what was his vision, and what should we remember about him?

Are You Smarter Than Jerry Springer? Ep. 164

Jene proposes a new TV show called, “Are you smarter than Jerry Springer?” Why? Jerry is something of a savant – at least when it comes to US Presidents and Yankees history.

This leads to a suggestion from Jene that they should all play HQ with Jerry at their side to see what happens.

Then, Jerry digs in on the confusion with North Korea this week. As the summit between the US and North Korea becomes more tenuous, what is the stage of the relationship, and what’s next for the two countries – and the world?

Is It Okay To Cheer For Trump’s Legal Problems? Ep. 163

First: The group talks about the recent royal wedding.

Jene proposes an idea for the three hosts to do to bond. Jene asks Megan as an HR professional, if that’s a thing in companies, to do an outside-the-job activity that brings the team members closer together.

Then Jerry wonders: As his opponents root for the end of the President’s tenure – is it okay, or unpatriotic, to cheer about his legal matters?

Why Move The US Embassy To Jerusalem? Ep. 162

Jene brings in a relic from the Folk Scare of the Sixties.

Speaking of Jene, he gets busted by an audience member for a minor crime.

Then, the group reaches out to Jerome Pilette. He’s somewhere in Mexico on a bicycle headed for the tip of Argentina, “the end of the world.” He’s been riding from Montreal, Canada, on this once-in-a-lifetime journey camping along the trails and roads. And Jene even made his journey a little better along the way…

Then, Jerry gives his take on the potentially disastrous consequences of moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem, and the strangeness of making the move in the first place.
