The Great Deflate?

f243b57cfd5ba491d0d23e4238d863ea_400x400This week’s debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump just happened to fall on the birthday of our pal, Politico Contributing Editor, and our favorite Blogginghead, Bill Scher. He joins us in the shack to talk about the debate, Donald’s chances, and the final few weeks of this most unusual election season. As always, we end up feeling a little bit better.

Also, if you’d like to hear him talk politics in real life, here’s your chance!

Bern-ing up

Also, Bill and Jaz discuss the damage caused by Bill Cosby’s “moral authority.”

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.
