Hats off…

f243b57cfd5ba491d0d23e4238d863ea_400x400The next presidential election isn’t happening for a year and half, but the hats are already starting to pile up in the proverbial ring. Hillary finally made her official – and much anticipated – announcement, and the Republican contenders are lining up to try and take her down. Our friend (and neighbor) Bill Scher takes time from his busy schedule writing for the Campaign for America’s Future and Politico, and appearing on MSNBC, to handicap the candidates with us.

Also, Bill muses about a rather monumental birthday coming up. Please, no party hats.

Studying for midterms

i voted stickerMidterm elections are happening Tuesday November 4th, and they’re making us as anxious and cranky as, well, midterm exams used to. Our friend and frequent MSNBC guest Bill Scher takes some time from his busy schedule writing for Campaign for America’s Future and other publications to try and soothe us. We also give our take on some of the local races, and discuss some of the philosophical debates raised by the ballot questions – for instance, why is the Commonwealth of Massachusetts supporting a monopoly? Why can’t our downtown businesses get the same guarantees of no competition from the state? These and other spleen ventings await you in this extra long episode of The Bill Dwight Show!

Oh, and Happy Halloween!

…some of them we talk about, some of them we don’t (which may cause Jaz to explode).

Bill Scher does NOT talk about Donald Trump, thankfully.

Tom Pappalardo makes some pretty bold statements about hipsters…and probably wishes we’d stopped there.

And Bill talks to Deb Katz of the Citizens Awareness Network about how people who think the nuclear disaster in Japan can’t happen here are deluding themselves.

Terrible Tuesdays

Bill and Jaz are suffering from sleep deprivation, flooding, and an infestation of ants, just to name a few things. Nerves are starting to fray. Luckily, Bill Scher and State Senator Stan Rosenberg are on the phone to bring calm and order to the day’s proceedings.

Also, I’m not sure why you can barely hear Bill in the first few moments, but it seemed to correct itself.

Saved by the Bob

After our scheduled guest had to postpone at the last minute, the ever-entertaining Bob Flaherty rescues us with his usual blend of humor and human interest stories. His latest column for the Daily Hampshire Gazette covers former Amherst resident Kimi Takesue’s documentary about Uganda, “Where Are You Taking Me?”

Once again, Bill makes his case against casinos, and pleads his case for an even better idea.

As always, Bill Scher gives us the scoop on the political lay of the land in his Progressive Breakfast.
