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.
Clean sweep in the studio this week, Aaron Burton, Kristal Star, and Lisa Westbrook (from North of Center Photography, winner of the Podcast Phil fund raising competition last December) joined me in the studio for another awkward romp through the news.

This week we have JM Bell, Melissa Merlot, Bob Easton, and the wet, heavy cough of JC Carter in the studio to talk about stuff and things, including Podcast Phil, and the Save The Forrest – Shaw Family Concert and Benefit on March 20, 2015 at Bar Deluxe.

Hey, you know what sounds like fun? I’ll interview a shrink, I’ll bet he’s full of stories and insights … so, yeah, this got dark. Aaron Burton of Geekhead Radio joins me for another episode of Tell Me A Story.
Big happy surprises this week as FORREST SHAW returns to the show after a long absence. Then, just when you think it’s all as joyous as can be … Sgt. Jake drops in to surprise JM Bell, Bob Easton, and Taylor Hunsaker. Then, Taylor and Jake fight – and it is AWESOME!
LISTEN AND BE AWED!
