Special Report: Is LaToya Cantrell stealing Katrina valor from a diner?

It’s October 27. Happy Varg Gras (Literally “fat Varg”)

In this special report Varg speaks with Jackson Square artist Katie Leese who has launched a personal investigation into the facts behind a recent LaToya Cantrell for Mayor campaign ad.  This sounds like the first of a two part series. We look forward to Katie’s follow up report/brunch review.

Episode 39: Curfew Carnival or Strange BedMayors

Check out @iSnapThereforeIam on Instagram.  That’s about it. Goodnight everybody!  Oh wait also Varg wants your money.  Oh and also here is a show. It’s HUGE.  Look, we’re sorry it’s two hours. But our friend, patron and show dad Ira Wray (@wemetintheair) drove all the way down from Baton Rouge just to sit in with us and there was a lot to talk about.  Here’s some notes to help you find your way through all this great #Content

Hour One

We’re all fresh off from actual compulsory hunkering during Hurricane Nate. We recap the that experience from Tactical Mitch to canned bread. Jeff hunkers down at Tujague’s. Our newest correspondent Jim Catchastory covers the hurricane.  Everybody has hurricane fatigue or fatigue fatigue or something like that.

There is a late breaking scandal in the mayor’s race. Varg has the scoop on that. Also the mayoral race is bad. We talk with Ira about the election and media strategy and do a little handicapping.

Musical performance by Engineer Pat and the Engineer Pat-ettes in a grudging tribute to Tom Petty

Hour Two

In sports, the Saints traded Adrian Peterson, Jacksonville is kind of a shithole, Ira and Varg talk fantasy football. Also Bo Knows Falconry.

Ira updates us on the Baton Rouge political scene and Mayor Sharon Weston-Broome’s troubles with the B.R.A.V.E. anti-crime initiative

Obligatory Tom Petty talk. Here are two articles of note this week about Tom Petty.

SOSO

Jeff appeared on the Dean’s List Fake News show.

Alli went to Comedy Fuck Yeah and had dinner at Bao and Noodle.

Episode 38: A Demonym for Tim en ’em

It’s election time in New Orleans. Do you know what district are you in?  One parish over, Mike Yenni is extremely weird but Lance thinks that’s ok.  The US and N. Korea went to DEFCON something or other over a tree one time.

We look at the latest mayoral poll numbers and talk about  what they might mean. Also here is   The ballad of Frank Scurlock.  Also, too, Sidney Torres’s farcical debate and its possible ramifications.   

Finally, in sports, LSU college football misery. #LesWouldaWon  NFL anthem antics, and, yeah, the back half of this episode has audio problems. Maybe ditch the headphones once the weird buzz kicks in.  We’ll get it right one of these days.
