Oh what a crowded room! Aaron Burton, Forrest Shaw, JC Carter, Taylor Hunsaker, and me, JM Bell. We talk a bit about FatCamp 3, Geek Therapist, and other newer shows! This week has a lot about equality – and the shameful lack of it in America these days. From Baltimore, to Transgender, to marriage equality in our time – it’s time for The LEFT Show!
Crowded house in the studio this week – the return of Taylor Hunsaker insures that all hands are on deck, as it were. JM Bell, JC Carter, Robert Easton, and Forrest Shaw are all in the room to cover the goofy news you thought you’d left behind!
THE LEFT SHOW
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
Oh, what a wonderful mix of awkward and uncomfortable we have this week. JM Bell, Taylor Hunsaker, Forrest Shaw, and Alpha Intern Ariel Shaw are in the studio, and, boy, did it get weird! Listen in to this one folks!

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.
