Today, I’ll be traveling to California and can’t carve out enough time in my preparations to do a live show. Instead, don’t miss this great episode from last week, featuring Kevin McCullough and Ash Soular, who performs two songs and talks about politics and common sense. I’ll be back tomorrow, so stay tuned!

Don’t forget to check out Xtreme Radio Now, Kevin and Stephen’s exploding success in independent talk radio, as well as Kevin’s book, The Kind of Man Every Man Should Be: Taking a Stand for True Masculinity.

Now you can join the conversation in the chat room! Be sure to register at Ustream to participate in our raucous live-chat sessions.

Jazz Shaw of The Moderate Voice moderates the chat, and he has his Troll Gun Trivia Contest running before the show, for those who get there early — and are registered!
