Episode 12 Insurrection 01.10.2021
The first episode of 2021. In this episode I do my best to put into words my thoughts on the insurrection and attempted over-through of our duly elected government of Wednesday January 6, 2021 by President Trump and his zealots and cronies. I used BBC news for much of the backstory and I make comparisons to the BLW protests from 2020 as well as the Civil Rights Protests of the 60s. This was a difficult episode for me as the events of this week really hit me hard as a student of the history of this country. Thank you all for listening and as always, "Be Excellent to Each Other!"

Episode 11 Election Day 11.03.2020
This is a raw uncut recording of a conversation with my uncle Joe Cipale recorded on election day 2020 as we were anxiously watching the returns in the Biden V. Trump Presidential race. We discussed the election as well as several other historic topics that related tangentially to the issues faced during the 2020 election. I apologize in advance for any possible audio issues as I recorded this from a Zoom call and did the best I could to clean up and balance the sound. Thank you all and "Be Excellent to Each Other"!

Episode 9 Loggers' Playday Special 09.13.2020
This episode focuses on the history of Logging in Grays Harbor and what Loggers' Playday means to me personally. I have actively been part of working the Elks portion of the days festivities for the last several years and due to COVID we were unable to have the event this year. The topic of this episode was requested by my sister-in-law and I felt what better time to talk about the history of Logging in the Harbor than the weekend that would have been Loggers' Playday weekend. Thank you all for listening and I hope you enjoy!  Music: [Pure Rock n Roll] by Alexander Nakarada (www.serpentsoundstudios.com) Licensed under Creative Commons BY Attribution 4.0 License https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/

Episode 4 Sources Followup and Copping an Attitude 05.03.2020
This week I am following up on last week’s podcast due to a listener’s request. This week I am discussing the information sources that I, as the Archivist with Attitude, use when I am doing research and working to separate fact from fiction. Also, I have added a new segment called Copping an Attitude in which I will be voicing opinion. I am making a point to distinguish this segment from the rest of the show in an effort to separate fact-based evidence I may present vs that which is my opinion. This week’s attitude will be copped about the labeling of various products as “Seasonal” and more seriously discussing the Illinois Nazis. Thank you all!!
