Hal Sparks Radio Pgm — Now with 100% less Hal Sparks! (10/06/13)

Announcement! The Katie Speak Live Archives feed is up on iTunes! Subscribe to never miss my spots with Hal, Ledge and others! There will be a podcast feed for the audio versions of my blog posts coming as well, so stay tuned.

If you’re streaming/downloading/tuning in for Hal Sparks, you won’t find him here! I took over the hosting seat and the mic on October 6, 2013 to talk GOP shutdown. I stacked the show with my favorite people and let them tackle how the Republican intransigence affects real people. We threw out stats and facts inconvenient to Speaker Boehner and his caucus, mocked the insanity of a Congressional minority demanding something for doing their damn jobs and I took down a ring-wing caller who thought he’d amuse himself by playing “Stump the Fill-in Host.”

We had a very heart-felt story from a listener who understands what cuts to the WIC program mean, ridiculous audio provided by Johnny — in the sidecar as always, and I gave producer Dennis a heart-attack by announcing that the FCC was out of commission due to the shutdown. Check it out, share, subscribe and go follow/read/listen to/enjoy my badass guests!
