    I Want A Pardon Too!

    I Want A Pardon Too!

    It's Inauguration and Inoculation Day for Lewis as he's celebrating the peaceful transfer of power with a needle in his arm. Just perhaps it will be enough to get rid the vibe of the last 4 years have generated. The bus is not rolling this week but that just allows for an episode of fresh listener-submitted rants. Some people have the state of affairs on their mind and let them rip, while others would rather bide their time by simply airing their grievances about Fitbits or the classic terrible reward for a job well done.

    Too Little, Too F*****g Late!

    Too Little, Too F*****g Late!

    The United States had a really dark week and like many of us Lewis is grappling with how to make sense of it. One thing is certain, he knows there are plenty to blame on the assault on our democracy and he has their numbers. As do many of the people submitting rants, from serious inquiries about how to explain it all to a child, people still not taking the pandemic seriously, the red tape our healthcare system provides, and a man from Iowa who was part of a COVID test group. Before you think this episode is nothing but doom and gloom, have faith because TV commercials are still enraging people and one young man might just have the best car out there just to spite his father. Then Lewis pulls an episode of rants straight out of Montclair, NJ. Where the locals don't want you there, they got out of the city already, there's no more room!

    2021 or 11,800

    Happy New Year! The year is 2021 - has the ticking over of the new calendar solved all of our problems yet? Probably not, and like many of us Lewis is trying to hold on as best as possible. Which is tough, because the world and its leaders are doing their best to throw the worst at us. And you know things are truly crazy when his Washington Football Team wins its division. Luckily we have some great listener-submitted rants that prove we're not all losing our minds. Then we roll into Shippensburg, PA's at the Grove Theater for some live rants straight from the folks at Shippensburg University.

    Pa Rum Pa Pum Pum, Boy Are We Dumb!

    It's the final Rantcast of 2020 and Lewis is coming in hot as he attempts to even begin to figure out how to wrap up the year. In a nutshell, it will take an entire 365 days to summarize everything that happened.
    On this episode, Lewis fields rants from an American abroad who just returned after spending the last few months attempting to explain how the U.S. handled the pandemic to foreigners. Someone also has a bone to pick with those preaching "love thy neighbor." How little St. Louis is doing about contract tracing, and even some anger about hot chocolate. But it's not all negative... Lewis also learns he played a small part in someone's encouragement to start to pay it forward during the holiday season. The live rants come from Worcester, MA where Lewis has some fond memories yet also had some of the worst Chinese Food of his life.

    A Coyote In The Bronx

    A Coyote In The Bronx

    Here's something you don't see everyday... a coyote in the Bronx. But that's just what happened to Lewis this weekend when he was headed to the golf course. Perhaps it's a metaphor for these times we live in, or maybe the coyote was just playing through on his way to track down its prey. If you're also thinking metaphorically, the US also got its vaccine this week - good news since its also been unable to execute the most basic of civic duties to prevent the spread, but who is keeping track?
    The live rants pick up again in Springfield, MA as Lewis also fields some user submissions from around the globe including an Australian who has a bone to pick with delivery drivers, someone who was was horrified to see what her neighbor did with hand sanitizer, a healthcare professional that calls b******t on it all, and the age-old rage against some good avocado toast.

Vaccine

Mr. Black. I love this podcast. I’m so happy you got your shot today! I finally got mine today, too. I’m an RN working in a busy office and even in the spring we never shut down completely. We (the nurses) have been doing all of the testing for our surgical patients to help the local hospital. I’m so happy there will be people now who know what they’re doing to get distribution on track.
P. S. I live in Jamestown. Yes, that one. Love you!
