Episode 193: Dividing By Zero

Our nation has become divided. About EVERYTHING. It all started with who is currently in the White House. We as Americans sure like a good fight amongst ourselves, at least. Then there are those out there who say this not a good thing. In this episode, Ric will tell you he thinks this actually a good thing. We should be divided over a number of things. How is that a bad thing? Plus music from Pengea.

Episode 192: An Evolution is Coming

From Radioland has been in production for a while now. This, in of itself is rather remarkable. Over the years, we have tinkered with the show. The production of this show has always been about tightening things up and making some specific changes along the way. The fact there is a gulf of difference from episode 1 and this one is testament to how much this show has changed. In this episode, Ric will tell you about some of the changes that are coming in the coming weeks. Plus music from Hardaway.

NEXT WEEK: Being divisive. Plus music from Pengea.

Episode 191: The Old Man’s Lemon Tree

It seems like a simple question. Why are some of the middle aged guys out there hell bent on growing a damn lemon tree? Think about it, there is a sub culture out there revolving around the apparent obsession of growing this little citrus tree. Is it some sort of weird mid-life crisis? Is it simply a matter of accomplishment? Or, is it because these guys need to have something useless to obsess over? In this episode, Ric delves into this weird slice of Americana to see what is going on. Plus music from The Rough Hearts.

NEXT WEEK: Producing From Radioland from the producer's chair. Plus music from Hardaway.

Episode 190: Ancient History

Perspective is a funny thing. Referring to "ancient history" depends upon how you were to define "ancient". Google turned 19 years old this year, for example. Planking was a thing around 8 years ago. Both things vastly different. 1 of these things seems as though it has been around longer than the other which seems happened long before Google. In this episode, Ric takes a look at this perspective and how it shapes the thoughts and actions of today's decision makers. Believe it or not, this shift in understanding the brief moments in history are affecting us all, right now. Plus music from Mark Edgar Stewart.

NEXT WEEK: The Old Man's Lemon Tree plus music from The Rough Hearts.

Episode 189: A Sense of Worth

What is your worth? We're not talking money here. One of the things we all have to contend with is this very notion. Are we defined by our lives? Does what we do every day matter to someone? What happens if I find what I like to do? Shouldn't I just give it away? There's a lot of questions. In this episode, Ric asks some more and discovers he really doesn't have any of the answers. Plus music from J.D. Reager.

NEXT WEEK: Ancient history. Around the time planking was a thing. Plus music from Mark Edgar Stuart.

Episode 188: Judgemental Bastard

Social commentary is what drives certain forms of entertainment. Even though we all do it, most of us don't overtly do it and certainly not in public. Ric is not this person. In this episode, Ric will talk about the limits by which we all live. Everyone has their price, right? The concept of this episode explores that very price. Along with what would make you cross the very line you have drawn? Plus, music from Fresh Flesh.

NEXT WEEK: A sense of worth. Plus music from J.D. Reager.

Episode 187: That Guy Is a Problem

Borrowing from the Radio Memphis in The Morning bit, How Not To Be That Guy, Ric seems to have a problem with what some people are actually doing in the real world. What started out as a simple observation of some of the silly and harmless, yet stupid things people do ever once in a while has become what seems to be standard unapologetic behavior. Which begs the question, has there always been the same percentage of people in our society that are That Guy or is it we just see more of them? Plus music from Every Mother's Nightmare.

NEXT WEEK: Judge, Jury & Executioner. Plus music from Fresh Flesh.

Episode 186: Things Fall Apart

The internet famous have finally come to a strange crossroads. These kids on YouTube apparently can't deal with their self inclicted stardom and the pressures of creating meaningful content. Really? These people never paid attention to the inherent difficulties show business is wrought with. Now they are faced with such difficulties and are melting down. Publically. In this episode, Ric has some kind words of support for these people. Well, maybe not "kind" per se, but important. Plus music from Low Society.

NEXT WEEK: That Guy. Plus music from Every Mother's Nightmare.

Episode 185: Going Where I Shouldn’t Have Been

You know that feeling you get when you go to some place where you really shouldn't be? The thing about that feeling is that it is interesting experience. In this episode, Ric got that experience. Although he sort of had authorization, he got to go where few people get to see. Not that it is anything truly special but, getting to go into the storeroom of a grocery store is truly kind of special. Particularly when you get to see the space where all the beer is kept. Plus music from Carlos Ecos Band.

NEXT WEEK: The internet famous are falling apart. Plus music from Low Society.

Episode 184: The Battering Ram Of The Trademark

There comes a point when every artist needs to deal with the minutia of the business of show business. For the most part, their work falls within two places; copyright and trademark. In this episode, Ric sits down with Dianna Fryer and discusses the differences between a Copyright and a Trademark. It is a substantial difference. If you are an artist, you need to know this. The reason? Ask yourself this question, is what I have created original? Let's take a look. Plus music from Kazha.

NEXT WEEK: Behind the great grocery curtain. Plus music from Carlos Ecos Band.
