Zero Tolerance

Where Icarus Flies podcast episode 3 is large and in-charge! Due to Veteran’s Day the podcast is a day late, but not a dollar short! 😉

WhereIF – Episode 3 Contents

So I thought I would try to keep my podcasts to under 30 minutes. Turns out, I just have too much to say! I think 45min or under will be my new goal. We debut a new segment today with guest host Joey Hoover, a longtime buddy of mine. I want to give Joey a big thanks for stopping by, I know his schedule is a busy one.

First San Jose Sharks Game!

This past Tuesday, I took my young son to his first NHL hockey game. It was the San Jose Sharks vs. the Nashville Predators. Although I am a Boston Bruins fan at heart, I have come to adopt the San Jose Sharks as my new hometown team. My boys root for the Bruins and the Sharks and there is little chance of them meeting in the Stanley Cup Finals. If that were to happen, we would be in a no-lose situation! 🙂 I talk a little bit about the game and the wonders of youth.

V: The Reboot

Although I posted a review of the blog earlier this week, I spend a few minutes talking about the new ABC series, V:The Reboot. I add some additional thoughts after having watched the second episode. I also noticed that David Richmond-Peck, one of the new series regulars began following @WhereIF on Twitter. Thanks for following David. As I say in my podcast, although I slammed the pilot episode, I do have hope for the series. Face it, it can really only get better at this point.

Zero Tolerance Policies

I spend some time discussing Zero Tolerance Policies in schools. To sum it up quickly, I am not a fan. In fact, I have zero tolerance for zero tolerance policies! I site some examples and give my opinions. I would love to hear your feedback and will read some email on an upcoming podcast. Down the line I will play around with a live broadcast where I can take “callers” and discuss topics in real time. I am not ready for that yet. For now, you can send feedback to

The Hoover Report

My longtime pal, Joey Hoover, stops by to give his take on some current events and other topics. This is the debut of the segment and Joey and I would love to hear what you think. I have asked Joey if he would like to guest write for the blog, but he is still mulling it over. Drop him a line via our feedback address and help me nudge him into giving it a try!

Masterworks Theatre

This week, it is back to my Norton Anthology of Poetry to give you a dramatic reading of one of my favorite poems of all time! What is it? You’ll just have to listen in and find out. 🙂

    Really liked this episode, especially the Hoover Report (my kids were cracking up at his catch-phrase). Did you see that some 10 year old kid got hit by a puck at the Sharks game?

    I liked Masterworks Theatre better this week, though I still think Rodney Dangerfield delivered the definitive version of that poem. 😉

  2. Bill on 11.13.2009

    Thanks Kevin! I’ll let Joey know that you kids enjoyed him. He just got an iPhone and he is pretty excited about it! I have been talking to him about Twitter, we’ll see if he jumps on the bandwagon. Joey has been asking me about doing a bit more on the show, we’ll see how that goes.
