JUST THE WAY YOU LOOK TONIGHT, Judy Stadt
Bobby conducts a simulcast (podcasting while broadcasting LIVE), on location at the Loud, Fast and Shitty Radio Studios (aka “Disgraceland”) in sunny St. Petersburg, Florida (aka “The Burg”), with Bob Noxious & Ick McWang, hosts of “Loud, Fast and Shitty”, a radio show/videocast, transmitting each and every Monday night from 8-10PM EST on LoudFastShitty.com. The show, which is also offered as a podcast that may be subscribed to on iTunes, airs the best new and upcoming punk rock, hardcore, oi and ska music. They also offer news, reviews, plus they highlight and interview various bands (on this particular episode, their “Band of the Week” is “Slade and the Wasters”). In addition to co-hosting LFS Radio, Bob plays guitar for the popular, Florida punk band, Pig Pen (distinct, in that its members dawn ski masks with protruding pig noses), while Ick is a pizza delivery driver. Calling all punkers and posers alike (if you’re sporting a Mohawk, can only play power chords or simply enjoy telling people to go fuck themselves) – meet Bob Noxious and Ick McWang.
First, that our government has been monitoring U.S. journalists to find the source of “serious national security leaks” which resulted in the seizure of Associated Press telephone records. A bit later, government agents out Fox News Reporter James Rosen as a co-conspirator in a leak of classified information.
This was followed by the stunning discovery that the NSA is scooping up all of our phone call metadata, and has been for years. Then came allegations that the NSA and FBI are tapping directly into the central servers of our leading Internet companies to spy on us: Microsoft (“Your Privacy is our Policy”), Yahoo, Google (“Do No Evil”), Facebook, YouTube, Skype, AOL and Apple.
Facebook tracks our every social move (along with its friends at shadow agencies), and even Google seems to be drifting over to the dark side. To what extent are they aiding and abetting this “protection” of the security of this country and its citizens?
Steadily, since 9/11 and the passage of the Patriot Act there have been a series of laws passed and upheld that threaten our Civil Liberties and are in violation of our constitutional rights. Think of the mechanisms:
The Patriot Act, FISA, SOPA,PIPA CISPA, Drones, Warrantless wiretapping, Location Tracking, camera surveillance, RFID….the insults go on and on.
Set a Techie to Catch a Techie
The subject’s complexity calls for our dividing the show into two parts. This first, today’s show, deals with the background and history. The follow-up show covers the “How-To’s” of self-protection and will serve to counsel us as to a sensible program of self-protection from governmental or private industry incursions.
We will employ today’s “15 Minutes of Fact” guest, Richard Garboski as President of eTechHelp, to flex his technology credentials and experience to help us make sense of all this.
Whatever happened to that Endangered Species, the Fourth Amendment, with such old-fashioned phrasing such as “…and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause…” preceded by “…the rights of the people shall not be violated…?”
What is currently being done through our courts to ensure that our constitutional rights are protected?
More importantly, is it possible to fight fire with fire – using technology to become our own guardians and protectors in this day of Internet, phone and even public surveillance?
In response to this need to know, Rich is creating an educational series called “Under the Radar” that proposes to teach people the latest tools for operating anonymously and securely on the Internet and even out in public spaces.
If you would like to learn more about Rich Garboski and his company, you can visit eTechHelp on the Internet. He can also be followed or reached on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or via his email, Rich@eTechHelp.com.
I suggest that you “star” both interviews as well as forward them to people, like yourself, who want to take back their privacy and security. If we have no interest in allowing Big Brother to walk through our front door, we certainly need to know how to lock the back door.
Bobby banters back and forth incorrigibly, on location, from the dilapidated boat dock at the former Coletti Compound on Madeira Beach, Florida, with a couple of lifelong friends (Brian “Wacky” Wechsler & A. Benjamin Coletti). The three decide to have an impromptu discussion, sharing their shitfaced sentimentality for the high school party house of their youth. This “drunk-cast” continues from the waterfront apartment of Eddie Lugo, a middle-aged Puerto Rican man who harbors similar idiotic attributes to these three amigos. WARNING: EVERYONE YOU ARE ABOUT TO HEAR IS COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY INTOXICATED. Without further adieu, please enjoy the ranting and ravings of Wacky, Crackhead and Rob The Wop.
We have had some interesting guests on 15 Minutes of Fact over time, and explored some compelling topics. When it comes to the intricacies of economic theory and abstract financial systems, however, I get a bit nervous. Even with the promise of requiring no more than 15 Minutes of attention on any subject, my listeners do tend to become a bit skittish and ready to “turn that dial” when it comes to the “dismal science.”
This likely won’t happen in this interview, and here’s why. Our guest today, Zeus Yiamouyiannis, makes it easy to be smarter.
Somehow, he is able to bypass the economic jargon generally used to describe our submerged economy and to reduce all this to simple accounting and common-sense equations.
Which is all the more impressive considering that he has a Ph.D, is an economics blogger, a futurist, and author of the newly published book Transforming Economy: From Corrupted Capitalism to Connected Communities.
When it comes to describing solutions to the economic disaster we are calling the Great Recession, Zeus is of a mind that “either change will happen TO us, or BY us” and provides some excellent reasons for taking the latter path. “We can’t avoid “a reality that is already upon us.”
Although romanticized notions of change and “New Age Fantastic Thinking” are debunked, consciousness is absolutely necessary to effect change. And, as a good (great?) teacher, he describes the consciousness required and then chunks information down to straightforward, manageable action items.
Much of this can be found in his “Five Courageous Steps to Transform Your Economy” (which impacts our personal practices), or his “10 Shocking Practices” (which highlight the truly-criminal acts that have been employed to strip us of our wealth). Both are companion pieces to his book. The first is free at his www.TransformingEconomy.com website, and the second available at no additional cost for those deciding to purchase one or more copies of his book).
What will catch the ear of the Occupier is his recommendation – requirement even – for debt forgiveness. “When you have something built on fraud…debt forgiveness is the last and only remedy,” Zeus claims with authority, describing an approach which he calls “Democratic Capitalism.”
One of the key requirements to make changes happen? “We need voice,” Zeus says. “Voice is the start of action,” and applauds the Occupy movement for being exactly that: the spearhead. No other group has so successfully identified toxic practices and demanded socially-responsible alternatives.
Occupy seems to embody Zeus’ coined phrase: “I am a more fulfilled me by a more effective we.”
Bobby speaks, on location, at Spark of the Divine Meditation Center in Vero Beach, Florida, with Mark Anthony, a medium who harbors the innate ability to speak with dead people, plus, he is an attorney; therefore, he possesses great communication skills with the living as well. Mr. Anthony markets himself as the “psychic lawyer” or “psychic attorney” of which he owns both trademarks. A published author who has written on the topics of law and metaphysics, his best selling book, “Never Letting Go,” is about healing grief with help from the Other Side. Is extra sensory perception real? Calling all believers and skeptics alike — meet Mark Anthony.
I’VE GOT A SECRET?
When I grew up in the ’40′s I was fed a load of baloney … nothing was based on reality, it was all magic, fairyland, and the cruelest hoax of all was the concept of falling in love, marriage to a prince and living happily ever after.

ONLY FOUR LEGGED DOGS IN MY BED, Written & Sung Judy Stadt
Bobby speaks, on location, from a boat, off the coast of Shell Island, which is a small key located within the intracoastal waterways of the city of St. Petersburg, Florida, with Tobia Spinelli, Ben Coletti and a couple of young, naive, barely legal, incorrigible females. Regardless of the distain Bobby holds in his heart in relation to his city of origin, according to Tobia, St. Petersburg has lots of history. From pro wrestlers to baseball icons, many notable athletes have called this St. Pete home. And even probably the most notable gangland figure, Al Capone, vacationed there extensively. Calling all notable residents of “The Burg” and their insignificant counterparts – who make Bobby’s opinion of this place true and accurate – meet Tobia Spinelli.
It’s not easy being a student today. It’s even less easy being a current or former student coming face-to-face with a ton of debt from different lenders and trying to figure out how to manage paying different amounts at different times to different entities.
Way back when you took those loans out (can you remember being 17 or 18?), no one told you that you that you would also need a minor in math and economics just to deal with their complexity. Studies tell us that some 65% of all students seriously misunderstand their loan obligations…and that’s on over $1 TRILLION in student debt!
It would appear almost…predatory…if it all weren’t so legal. Lenders, at least up to the present, have no problem saddling students (few of them qualified to make an educated decision) with tens of thousands of dollars of obligations.
And, why shouldn’t you sign those papers placed in front of you when you are the most vulnerable? You are young, you have a great future before you, and that degree is a ticket to a better life. That is, if you don’t default. That is, if you keep your payments up to date. That is, if you can determine the best survival financial strategy when things do get tight. And there’s that job thingee.
Our guest today, Andrew Josuweit, CEO and Founder of Student Loan Hero, was motivated by his own painful experience with student debt to develope an online technology which will go a long way towards making your life easier.
To remind my listeners of my own background in the credit and collections industry, I cannot stress enough the very real dangers involved in getting over one’s head in debt. Be particularly aware that certain student debts – regardless of your financial situation in the future – cannot be discharged in a personal bankruptcy. This is a distinction that defaulted students share with one other social class: convicted felons.
Let’s see if this interview – and the tools discussed – can make this an unlikely future for my student and ex-student listeners.
