A Classic Cheater!!!WhereIcarus Flies, Episode 12, the last honest podcast…

WhereIF Episode 12 Contents

Back again! Did you miss me? Did you think I was gone for another 5 months? Well, no such luck!!! Some quick website news. I know that you cannot get enough of my pithy yet thought provoking Twitter musings. So, I have a new section of the website that has archived all of my tweets. The collection is browsable by moth and fully searchable. You may not have asked for it, but you sure got it!!! There is a link on my website or feel free to visit WhereIF’s Tweets now.

That is all I have to say about that… So now, on to this week’s show.

Cheating in Sports

Cheating and sports go hand-in-hand. Is there a difference, however, between working to get a call and breaking the rules? Derek Jeter, poster boy for wholesome goodness, truth, justice and the American Way is being vilified for overacting in a recent game. He did not get hit by a pitch, but he acted as if he did and got the call. Besides hamming it up WAY to much, is he a cheater? What are some other memorable cheating moments in sports history? We’ll take some time to mull it over this week.

Big Brother 12 on CBS

One of my favorite summer guilty pleasures! I do love this show. This summer’s cast could possibly have been the most boring cast in Big Brother history, yet they are not the worst cast ever, in my opinion. What is is whit these reality shows that keep us watching? I spend some time talking about this hit summer show.

iTunes Ping

Is it a social networking platform, a marketing ploy, a useless idea or the next phase in Apple’s media domination? I share my opinions on this new grass roots effort by Apple to become our media control center. I would also love to hear your thoughts on this.

The Hoover Report

Joey Hoover stops by to give us his thoughts on Derek Jeter, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Nikita on the CW and more!

Masterworks Theatre

This week is another special MWT. With my budding guitar skills (well, maybe budding is too strong) I give you my version of “The Boxer” by Simon and Garfunkel.

Podcast File Info – Episode 12

I used an enhanced version of the podcast (.m4a) as the default version in my RSS Feed and on iTunes. If you have any problems with it, let me know (although if you use iTunes, .m4a is not a problem). I have received feedback that some mobile devices have trouble with the enhanced version (yes, that is you Blackberry). You can still get the .mp3 version from the website.

    Hey Bill

    I’m currently listening to the iTunes Ping part of the podcast. I find it very difficult to hear you (at least concentrate on what your saying) under the music.

    Enjoying it so far!

    Yeah, I just checked and my sound is a bit jacked up this week. Apparently I had the wrong mic settings. That’s what I get for rushing! I am cleaning it up a bit and will repost, but there isn’t too much I can do about it. I’ll make sure I have the correct settings next week.

    Thanks for listening John!
