This Week In Jackassery, Ep. 4

Shane BarnhillThursday,12 March 2015

In the fourth episode of This Week In Jackassery, Adrienne Boettinger and I discuss Florida Governor Rick Scott, a University of Oklahoma fraternity’s racist chant, Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, new music from Florence and the Machine, the Apple Watch’s reflection of societal problems, the controversial letter from GOP Senators to Iran, a hot new app called Meerkat, and proof that everything in the world doesn’t suck.

This episode is sponsored by Marketing Press, and both Adrienne and I are grateful for their support. On their website, Marketing Press notes that they blend “business and development to create WordPress sites that succeed. We approach websites as marketers, not developers, and use a data-driven process to guide everything we do. By seeing where you are now and setting a strategy to achieve your goals, our team can help you build an effective, easy-to-manage site that improves your conversions, community, and content.” As a client, I can attend to the great results that Marketing Press delivers.

You can listen to the full episode of This Week In Jackassery above, but here are 4 quick takeaways from the show:

1. Florida Governor Rick Scott may or may not have explicitly banned use of the term “climate change” in his administration, but he’s one of those “I’m Not A Scientist” Republicans, and that’s bad enough.

2. The Clintons remind a lot of people of The Underwoods, and Hillary just might have some Frank Underwood in her.

3. Florence Welch’s voice shines on the latest releases from Florence and the Machine, but neither Adrienne nor I think there’s a hit on the level of “Dog Days Are Over” in the new songs.

4. As usual, a lot of things are driving us to drink this week, but on the bright side, we found two whole proof points that everything in the world doesn’t suck!
