THANKS TO MIKE SHANIN AND ALL THE KICK-ASS CAST AND CREW OF RUCKUS!!!
Over the years, we've long been on the record about how much we like KCPT's Ruckus political talk show and how important it is to the local discourse . . .
Yesterday, it really was a dream come true to accept an invitation to chat about local politics on Kansas City's gold standard opinion forum.
THANK YOU TO MIKE SHANIN AND ALL THE KICK-ASS CAST AND CREW OF RUCKUS!!!
KCPT stays classy and I was in good company with Mary O'Halloran, Woody Cozad & Marcus Leach.
Mr. Shanin was an exceptionally warm and friendly host, it's always kinda cool to meet people you've seen on TV for years and then find out that they're just as nice, smart and interesting as you've suspected.
People who meet TKC are always disappointed to see that I'm mostly distracted by my phone like some dweeb tween.
Anyhoo . . .
CHECK THE LATEST EPISODE OF RUCKUS . . .
The TKC invite doesn't have much to do with my efforts but speaks to the importance of our blog community in the local discourse, even if we're bawdy, brazen, out of line very often but still THE LAST REMAINING FREE SPEECH ZONE in Kansas City.
Thanks to everyone for watching and some really good insights, congrats and analysis from Chuck, The Polar Bear, Miss Sweetie Pie, xalti, Special K, G-Man, my friend M, and many others.
More in a bit . . .
