It was for the Federation… it was all for the Federation! Podcast #187

We continue our commentary series in the silly and as Dann puts it, stupid, movie called INSURRECTION. We laugh and laugh at the movie and ask the hard questions that no one else is daring enough to ask. Ok maybe not, but we enjoy poking fun and this movie was no exception. Just imagine what we will be doing next week for Nemesissy… Tonight’s Rule of Acquisition: #208 “Sometimes the only thing more dangerous than a question is an...

And you people, you’re all…astronauts… on some kind of star trek? Podcast #186

Tonight our faithful listener, Dann, joins the crew for our review of Star Trek: First Contact. Listen as we discuss the movie act by act. This is a different form of presentation then we normally do. It is more of the Delta Quadrant style of review with clips. I even tossed in a few sound effects for the fun of it. I’m sorry it took so long to post this, but post production editing was a massive chore. More on that in the next show,...

We didn’t have a very easy time with doing this show, so please bear with us on the sound...

Tonight our guest, Colin, comes on to discuss Artificial Lifeforms both today and in the Star Trek time frame. We even discuss Dr. Who, or as I call it, Dr. Why Bother.

A Citizen’s view and a Cops reality, on being a Police Officer, by Lou Costanzo

This was written as a Facebook comment on the Omaha Police’s Facebook page looking for applicants. It was intended as being funny and serious at the same time. Here is and edited version of what I wrote. Ten things a citizen believes:  Your a customer service agent. Every interaction must begin and end with a smile and a thank you for making a complaint or committing a traffic infraction. Your cruiser camera isn’t the only...
