OK, so, from time to time I am going to mention a topic I want to hear from everyone on. This is your chance to be heard!
Once you have the topic, you can call the below phone number and leave a voicemail with your thoughts. I am looking for opinions from all sides of the topic, so this isn't just going to be libertarian and right wing. Yes, folks on the left, I want you to call in, too. There will be no discussion between callers, no commentary by me. You state your thoughts and that's it, it gets presented.
Here are the basic rules, please read them before calling:
I am looking for all sides, as stated. So if you have friends you normally disagree with, get them to call, too.
Here is topic 1.
Have thoughts on Baltimore and places like it? How it got that way, how to fix it, gentrification, anything pertaining to areas similar to Baltimore (it doesn't need to be Baltimore, you can talk about any/all places like it).
As a lot of you know, I do videos and a podcast. Well, I had an idea and I want to see if it will work out.
I want to do a video/podcast series on issues that revolves around the opinion of everyone but me. What it will be is this: I'll bring up a topic of some kind. You guys can call my phone number and leave a message with your opinion. If you call and leave a message you do so with the understanding that it will be used in the podcast and videos. You can leave your name or remain anonymous, that's completely up to you. You MUST be willing to leave a voicemail message or email me a video response with your opinion on the topic, I will not read comments for this series.
Here's the thing... I want varied opinions. I don't want a series full of everyone agreeing. There will be no discussion between callers, but I want to be able to display - without commentary - varied opinions on a topic. I want to challenge listeners/viewers to think about opposing view points.
If you folks think this sounds like a decent idea, I'm going to need your help. Obviously I'm going to need you to call. But I'm also going to need you to get other people to call, too. Your friends and family, people you know online, etc. The podcast isn't popular enough for this to work with only the listeners.
So, what do you think? I have a Google Voice number set up, but you can also do it right through Discord, too. Or, if you want your face in a video, you can send me a video message, and it can be done through social media. Thoughts?
OK, I want to ask you guys a serious question about the page here (as well as all associated stuff). It was suggested by a few people that I change the name of the podcast/video channels/website/etc. because it turns people off.
I started all this as a website years ago, and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (or just Whiskey Tango if you follow the videos and podcast) and Uncle Sam there have been following me around for a long damn time. What are your thoughts about both? I know a lot of folks don't like Uncle Sam flipping them off. But there was a method to my madness at the time with both the name of the page and Uncle Sam. However, this has grown a lot since that time and I never thought about changing the name or anything like that until now.
But what are your thoughts? Is the whole thing a turn off? Do you like it? Should we change it? Let me know what you think.
Please keep in mind, we're not just a website or social media, etc. Here's more information and the background and reasoning, etc.
OK. We're trying something different. I'm going to live stream the podcast again this week, but we're doing it at Twitch. I haven't done Twitch yet, so this might crash and burn real hard, but we'll try it out. So, meet me Sunday night at 10PM Eastern at Twitch. IF I AM LATE hang on, because I most likely screwed something up and can't get it to actually stream. As I said, haven't tried Twitch before. Here's the link: https://www.twitch.tv/whiskeytango016
You can also get it right from this site. If you go to video in the links up top and choose Twitch and Youtube Live Streams you can watch the stream right from here. You'll only be able to actually interact at Twitch, though.
But yeah, come over and watch me screw up Twitch. LOL!
I screwed up. Mom's 70th birthday was yesterday and we took her and some friends out to party. I got home very, very late and was so exhausted I couldn't see straight. Guess what didn't get done! There's no podcast. SO! Let's go live at 10PM Eastern tonight instead. We'll just do the podcast live. The audio from the live feed will become the podcast later.
