On Michael Jackson

By happenstance, I was in Hugh Hewitt’s studio yesterday when the news about the one-time Prince of Pop (that’s all I’ll give him, sorry) broke. We spent much of the next three hours talking about his death and what it

Let's Talk About Mormons (and 'Big Love')!

Oh yeah, Hugh Jackman!

Actually, it was nice not having a lot of schtick from a host every 15 minutes. nice track at the end here! The previews are better than the whole night, but isn’t that always the way?
