TMI 08/11/2023 – The Core of Conspiracy Theories Isn’t Entirely Wrong, How Building Communal Trust Can Help Us Cope With the Climate Crisis, Fighting to Feed the Homeless in Houston and more

Conspiracy theories are everywhere lately, and we look at the fundamental core underlying them all to see that THAT, at least, appears to be valid. Then, while we spend a moment taking stock of how disastrous a winter Antarctica is having, we turn from that to see how building trust in each other on the local level can help mitigate the disasters we face as the Climate Crisis rolls on.

Finally, we look on as Food Not Bombs volunteers in Houston take on the city’s law against feeding the homeless. All this and more on TMI for Friday, August 11, 2023 – listen in for YOUR Cure for the Common Media!

2021 Colorado Conspiracy theories COVID-19 Democratic Party Emergency Room Episode ER House of Representatives misinformation Parthenogenesis Science Vaccination WSUM

TMI 11/05/2021 – The Human Cost of Going Unvaccinated in Colorado, How the “Rough Night” of Election Day 2021 Went, Science News on Condor Parthenogenesis, More!

In a scenario that is also playing out elsewhere, Colorado is finding out that the cost of allowing so much ignorance about vaccination among its citizens is its hospitals becoming completely overwhelmed by mostly those who refuse the vaccine. Not only does that harm the benighted patients in the ICU, it also keeps hospitals from being able to admit others who need their services, forcing non-COVID patients to be turned away even from emergency care.

Then, we look at the much-exaggerated “rough night” the Democratic Party had on 11/2/2021 – the losses were easily predictable, despite what the corporate media wants you to think, and they are being used as leverage to push Dems even FURTHER from action that would inspire people to come out in support of them. Finally, we talk about a pair of exciting new discoveries in the world of science: successful parthenogenesis in birds (specifically condors) being observed for the first time, and the ability to use a brain implant prosthesis to allow a blind person to ‘see”.

TMI 10/29/2021 – Trump Administration and GOP Congressional Connections to Jan 6th Capitol Attack Confirmed, and how the ACEP Profiteers off of ER Visits

Rolling Stone published a blockbuster investigation that directly connects a number of GOP Congresspeople and the Trump Administration itself to the planning of the Capitol Attack of January 6th, 2021 – we go over the report in detail.

Then, if you wondered how Emergency Room visits get to be so expensive, a lobbying group called the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) have spent decades now twisting the regulations and then flouting even THOSE to make an illegal profit for the capitalists who back it.

TMI 10/01/2021 – Amazon’s Company Town Solution is a Horrible Idea, COVID-19 Killing More US Conservatives Than Ever, Trump’s Lawsuit to Hide from January 6, 2021

Amazon says it has the perfect solution to the housing crisis: why not let them house their workers in affordable housing near their workplaces, allowing them to also help control costs by supplying transportation, food, and other needs? Why? Oh, we’ll tell you, and the answer is to be found in the old classic “Sixteen Tons”.

Then, COVID-19’s path of death has shifted its focus: as more of your centrist-to-leftward population in America has gotten vaccinated versus the conservative side, more US conservatives are finding themselves hospitalized by the “hoax”, with no few of them dying of it. Finally, we look at how Trump is suing to try and keep White House records from January 6th, 2021 from investigators into the Capitol Attack. Nothing suspicious there. All that and much more on TMI with Aldous Tyler for Friday, October 1, 2021. Listen in for YOUR Cure for the Common Media!

TMI 04/02/2021 – Amazon Fights Unionization, American Democracy Stressed by 2020 Election

As efforts by the workforce at Amazon’s Bessemer, Alabama facility to join the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union ramp up, Amazon has been engaging in dirty tactics to frighten, intimidate and bully their workers out of voting yes. While these tactics are used far too commonly nationwide against unions. Amazon was using their immense power to involve local police, the postal service and more.

Then, we examine how the tumultuous election of 2020 has strained the very structure of democracy here in the United States, and where these weak points can cause future trouble. All this and more on TMI for Friday April 2, 2021 – listen in for YOUR Cure for the Common Media!

TMI 12/25/2020 – How to Have Holiday Conversations, Populism’s True Meaning, and Farewell 2020!

On this Xmas Day episode, we get into some pointers on how to keep Zoom calls with loved ones over the Holidays from degenerating into the latest QAnon litany of nonsense. Then, I put to rest some unfinished business with some listeners from “across the pond” who wish to insist they know what “Populism” is. I insist that until they hear where it actually came from, they keep the word out of their mouths – this can be solved simply by listening as I go over the origins, history and the story of the solitary quack who was taken far too seriously in Europe when it comes to Populism. Finally, I bid farewell to 2020, and look forward to the next episode being 2021. All that and more for the Xmas present that is TMI for Friday 12/25/2020 – stuff your stocking with the Cure for the Common Media!
