It seems like the last few months have been a blur. I've been traveling so much the show has had to take a back seat to other responsibilities.
That sucks because this show has always been a passion project for me and the passion is still there. But I've got some good news...
First, it would appear, at least for the rest of the month, I'm going to be behind the mic every day. It's back to the old routine, and that's going to feel good.
Second, As I look into next year, I've decided I want to make the show my primary focus. For three years I've done the show part-time as a labor of love, but if this show is ever going to have the impact, I want it's going to take a full-time effort.
Right now I'm working with advertisers and partners to help make this possible, and I could not be more excited. A move to a full-time show means not only do you get the show, five days a week, but it also means I'll have time for all the little things you've been asking for like short video clips, in-depth interviews, and live events. I may even hit a speaking event or two. :)
The bottom line is this; I just want to say thank you for your patience and commitment to this show and the ideas we promote. I know it might seem like my commitment has wained in the last few months but nothing could be further from the truth. I want to blow this show up into one of the most significant political and economic voices in America, and I could not do it without you.
Now, how about some news!
Since I've been gone, I haven't had the chance to comment on the recent shooting in Texas. I've been watching a lot of coverage, and for some reason, the media wants to focus on bump stock legislation and mental health screenings.
You've got voices with varying political and social interests trying to spin the shooting to fit their agenda, and I don't feel like there are very many people having an honest discussion about gun violence and how we fix it.
So today I'll spend a chunk of the show giving you my thoughts on guns, background checks, mental health and how we solve the explosion in violence we see, not just here in America but around the world.
