Oh, what a treat for JM and Forrest! Sarah Cahan and Shawn Broadhead – old friends from our Anchor’s Aweigh days came into town for the DefenMEDIA Podcast Phil: Save The Forrest Shaw Family Benefit Concert. Wow – that was a big f’kn show! Wow! Oh, and news!
THE LEFT SHOW
Guess what? Forrest is back this week, with Melissa and Bob … spiffy! So, JM Bell’s list – The Link Farm – got super crowded really early in the week what with all the dipshittery of the GOPpers, that this whole episode is a little crowded, hurried, and, frankly, intimidating. So – listen in as JM Bell finally has his spirit break.
THE LEFT SHOW
Our beloved Forrest Shaw was given a terminal cancer diagnosis at the end of last year. Medical costs, and household bills, are nearing a critical levels, and at this point, the reality of losing their house is a looming concern. www.podcastphil.com
We are trying to raise money to help pay down medical debt, keep the Shaw’s in their house, and keep the children healthy and fed. It’s a big job, but, throughout the years, Forrest has been there for so many of us; it’s just time to return the favor. www.podcastphil.com
Please join us on March 20th at Bar Deluxe for an amazing – 21 and over – evening. www.podcastphil.com

THE LEFT SHOW LINKS
An intimate setting hosts this week’s The LEFT Show with JM Bell, Ultimate Bob, and Forest Shaw. We cover everything from the GOP War On Women, to the GOP War on Science, to the GOP War on Common Sense, to the GOP War on Leonard Nimoy.
I am having a shitty day, and, frankly, I am surprised at the intensity of my sadness.
From the NYTimes:
Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. He was 83.
His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed his death, saying the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Icons, especially ones who were already established when I was born, tend to feel permanent – but, obviously, they’re not. I imagine this is how my dad felt when John Wayne, or Jimmy Stewart, died. I’m feeling a little deflated, but there’s one thing that we’ll always have to add a little brightness to this sad news, and this loss to so many different fandoms.
Rest in peace, live long and prosper.
