Unfiltered and Unfettered covers politics, social and cultural issues, from a no-nonsense, logical yet common guy approach
February 2014 Episodes:
- Episode 37: Thatâ€™s a Big Twinkie
- Podcast Season 2 Episode 37: Thatâ€™s a Big Twinkie
Good show for you tonight. A little change up from our normal routine. We are politics light and culture heavy for this episode. Youâ€™ll be spoiled with another new bit called Culture Clash. As is always the case it will be accompanied by the best bumper music in the business. We think youâ€™ll like it.
Who we gonna call now?
A comedic light has been extinguished. Harold Ramis, known to most of us as Egon Spengler from Ghostbusters, passed away this week. He was 69. You wanna talk success? He was a writer, actor, or director, sometimes all three at once, in these films: Animal House, Caddy Shack, National Lampoonâ€™s Vacation, Stripes, Ghostbusters I & II, Back to School, Groundhog Day, and Analyze This. Just to name a few.
Uncle Sam donâ€™t want you!
In the same breath and with a straight face, the Obama administration says the US will withdraw from Iraq and Afghanistan and then draw the Army down to pre-WWII levels. Who feels the pain more, active members or retirees and are the other branches of the military far behind. Either way, itâ€™s a big shit sandwich and we all gotta take a bite. (Full Metal Jacket)
N stands for not a good idea.
The NFL is going to penalize a team 15 yards if a player uses the N word during the game. Great. I can hear the call now, â€œWe have the illegal use of a racial slur, number 93, defenseâ€¦.oh wait my bad, 39, yeah 39 is the racist not 93. My bad peeps.â€ This wonâ€™t end well.
- Season 2 Episode 36: GOP goes LGBT, US goes Super G & Upton's Ds go Zero G!
- Man, just when you thought it couldn't get crazier around here, along comes the internet to up the ante. We have it all tonight, from zero gravity breasts to tornados being classified as terrorist weapons of mass destruction to Miley Cyrus eating a thong thrown on stage. I told you it was gettin weird up in here.
Alphabet Soup For Everyone!
The GOP has invited the LGBT to CPAC. Holy spelling bee batman, that's a lot of letters. But the group GOProud, a conservative group made of LGBTers, is going to speak at the conservative super bowl known as CPAC. What does all that mean. No idea. All I know is CPAC has been added to my C-Span viewing list.
Murica EFF YEAH!
The US begins to assert its dominance at the winter Olympics in Sochi. Medaling in events they haven't been competitive in for 60 years or more, the US team is peeing on Putin's propaganda parade. The final straw, US men's hockey squashed the Russian National team and it wasn't even hard work let alone a miracle.
Zero G and I feel Fine!
John Glenn had no idea when he became the first American to orbit the earth that he'd be followed by a swimsuit model wearing an eye patch for a bikini. Kate Upton went through zero gravity for a photo shoot wearing a suit that proved unable to contain all her wonderfulness. I'm guessing that was the point.
All that plus a new segment; Yeah, I got a problem with that! Tune in to find out what two old, fat, retired military guys are complaining about now. Trust me, you don't want to miss it.
- Episode 35: The Agony of Defeat
- Podcast Season 2 Episode 35 Agony of Defeat
Theyâ€™re falling from Mt Olympus like flies from a bug-whacker. Crazy Uncle Joe is no longer sure he's running for President, Shaun White comes up empty at Sochi, and George Zimmerman, yes that George Zimmerman, loses his shot at the title. On the plus side T-Nak the magnificent returns with an Olympic spectacle you won't want to miss.
Say it Ain't so Joe
When asked directly about the race for the White House in 2016, Uncle Joe says ask me next year. Pssst Joe, hey man, next year will be one year too late. In the words of the great Coach Vince Lombardi, "What the hell is going on around here!"
No White Gold in these hills
Shaun White backs out of the slope style event to save his energy for the half pipe. Probably should have sparked up a pipe, the red haired wonder comes up fourth and out of the medals at Sochi.
Down goes Zimmerman, down goes....
No go for George Zimmermann as the promoter of his fight with rapper DMX gets cold feet or a bout of conscious. Either way, he backed out of the fight and so did the money. No payday for the man famous for shooting a black boy armed with skittles and a hoodie.
All that plus an Olympic update, a little sparring over the situation in Syria, and a Conspiracy that will blow your doors off.

- Episode 34: Smoke em if ya got em!
- Welcome to one of the few bastions of freedom left in the world. Smokers welcome, for a while at least. Forget Wolf Blitzer, forget Hannity, forget Maddow. Take a seat, light up and enjoy a mellow podcast that brings you all you need to know about your world today.
CVS for your health
The big time pharmacy/convenience store announced it will no longer sell tobacco products of any kind. I get the sentiment, but I'm worried about the precident. How long until they stop carrying the Sham Wow is what I want to know.
The Sochi Blues
What? A country that spent all its's money on their military and space program and both went bankrupt, can't get the infrastructure necessary to make ready for the Winter Olympiad? Do tell! To be blunt (haha) Sochi has been described as everything from a summer resort to a poor man's Harlem.
Chris - say it isn't so!
Well it may not be so. Christie accusers are coming out of the woodwork claiming to have all kinds of evidence about bridgegate. Small problem, non of them can produce any of it. The Port Authority director taking all the heat, pic left, claims to have big Chris dead to rights. Stop blowing smoke people.
All this plus a great Politicians of the Podcast segment!
