If you’ve never listened to the People’s Podshow this would be a good time to start!
This week, we had the extreme pleasure of hosting Lex Scott, founder of Utah’s preeminent social justice group, the United Front. We briefly discuss their history, what they are doing currently, and what they plan on doing in the future. We were joined by the U.F.’s president, Angela Reed, a short while into the interview (by phone). She shared her insightful views on economics, education and unity as well.
Do you want to know the difference between #blacklivesmatter and the United Front? Do you want to know/discuss why black nationalism is important? Would you like to know how you can join the United Front and other organizations aimed at making the valley (and the world) a better place? Tune in to find out and/or follow the links below!
My guests this week; Kira, Asbhy and Andy are the focus of this episode and they are cosplay enthusiasts. What does that mean? Essentially, they gather with friends and dress up as characters from anime, cartoons, comics, movies and television shows! Sometimes at conventions and, of course, on Halloween, but hey, sometimes for fun… because entering another world or another persona is fun, right?
The group talks about an upcoming event called Anime Banzai, how many costumes they own, which characters they like portraying the most and even weightier topics like body shaming and harassment in the cosplay community.

May the force be with you? Nanu nanu? Live long and prosper? Insert whatever catch phrase you want here. As long as you’re excellent to each other when you party on dudes.

On Episode 155 of Ol’ Ute Radio we had a blast talking with Salt Lake Tribune journalist Kyle Goon!
Goon talks about the standards for scrutinizing younger athletes and the tricky nature of building relationships with the teams and coaches. Goon explains his personal philosophy behind his brand of journalism and how he is not just reporting on a University, but keeping a big business accountable.
Goon addresses the conflict between journalism versus blogging, defining the boundaries of the professional journalist vs player relationship and how he would rather live in a world with TMZ than without!

Once again we have some great guests on the show, Stuart Thompson and Krystal “The Pistol” two comics in from LA stop by and get on the mics. In classic Stupid Questions form we start talking about a subject and it quickly turns into something else. We talk about how you shouldn’t get to know your neighbors anymore, but then it quickly changes to maybe we should all just talking with our neighbors. Knowing your neighbors is a good way to all be on the same page with social issues. Also in this episode Stuart give my apartment the best name ever, “Helter Shelter.” Check out this episode it was a lot of fun talking with Krystal and Stuart.
Krystal “The Pistol” LaFianza Pitzen:
Johnny McKeon, Sasha Blume & Wayne Thompson Jr. welcome self-proclaimed Cross-Dressing Mormon Anarchist Paul Duane to the Show. The conversation starts early discussing Manhood and Parental Influence. Paul shares his perspective on his wardrobe decisions, explaining his motivation to disrupt the status quo while shocking people into thinking about cultures and perspectives outside of the norm.
Paul talks about his perspective on Mormonism and offers an oral history on how its progressive roots model the Libertarian Party. He later questions the themes and methods of organized religion while exploring concepts from the Tao Te Ching. Paul talks about his involvement with the Libertarian Party and how it led to the Paul Duane Show on K-talk.

For the masculine part of my four-part series dealing with relationships, I had my friends Richard and
Matt (not Frank) in the studio with me to share their opinions on what attracts them to women and how they see themselves growing with age and experience. This series has been fun to record, however, I feel like my friends are a bit more reserved than they would be if we were speaking off the record!
Another issue with this week’s Podshow is the congruity of thoughts. My military buddies and I are all single, conservative, military veterans who run in the same circles. I really wanted to get a diverse group of men that could represent a more varied outlook on the subject matter, but my guests had some very interesting viewpoints regardless.
In the next episode of this series, I will be interviewing a group of men and women to compare what was said in the previous shows and, most importantly, see if I can find a common ground when it comes to relationships between men and women. I don’t know if I have learned much that I didn’t know about the sexes in general, yet I feel as if I have learned new things about my peers and myself. I have a lot of work to do before I become the venerable leader of a healthy family.
