The Political Goose Chase ~   Host Barry Piatt describes the weekly, half hour, Political Goose Chase Radio Show as “a thinking voter’s guide to American politics.”

    “If you like radio shows that make you mad or that manufacture enemies for you to hate, I’m probably not the show for you,” he says. “My goal is not to make you mad. My goal is to make you think.”

Piatt, has a lifetime of experience observing politics close up, as a political reporter, and as a top level Capitol Hill, congressional and presidential campaign message strategist.

He’s also been through the Iowa Presidential Precinct Caucuses and the New Hampshire Primary as a top communications aid, and set up Dick Gephardt’s winning campaign organization in the 1988 Iowa Democratic Presidential Precinct Caucuses.

    Based in Washington, D.C., the program features Piatt’s thoughtful commentary, and often includes interviews or discussions with close observers or those active on the front lines of today’s most pressing issues, on the campaign trail and in Congress.

    The show also features delightful, but little known, tidbits from history in a light hearted feature called “Bet You Didn’t Know!”

     The Political Goose Chase Radio Show offers a political pro’s perspective, heard nowhere else, in a way that is not only informative, but fun.

The Political Goose Chase Radio Show airs every Saturday at 1PM Pacific Time Zone and then repeats on Wednesday at 1PM Pacific



The Hudson Valley Howl ~ This is the HOWL in the VALLEY!  Aware of the beauty that surrounds us, we are also aware of its fragility under the corporate structure.  Aware of the beauty that human beings are capable of, we are also aware how entrenched systems of inhumanity are supported by the very same human beings who are capable of such beauty. 

In this half hour, the poetry of marina mati, your host, expresses the "psychic journey," to quote Octavio Paz, of someone living in this country, in this time.  marina will open each podcast with the work of a poet known or unknown, who lives or has lived in the Hudson Valley.

The Hudson Valley Howl airs every Monday at 6PM Pacific Time Zone and repeats onThursday at 6PM Pacific


JMac's Palace Of Memories ~ Unlike the fictional geniuses Hannibal Lecter or Sherlock Holmes I lack the intelligence and mental discipline necessary to properly construct an organized Palace of Memory.  Rather than a visually elegant European edifice, my brain stores most of my memories in the dusty attic of an abandoned three story brick farmhouse with a leaky roof.  I believe it’s modeled after my father’s family home in rural Indiana, but I’ll get back to that later.

JMac's Palace Of Memories airs every Friday at 10:30 Pacific Time and repeats on Wednesday at 10:30 Pacific.
