    The Jake Carney Show Ep 9: Paying College Athletes

    On today’s podcast, we talk about Anxiety, Paying College Athletes, and Boy/Girl Scouts.

    Jake and special guest Matt D’Lando traveled yesterday on a business trip. Jake shares his experience with his anxiety for flying. Do you enjoy airplanes? Are you a good flyer? How do you combat anxiety? What makes you most anxious. Lucky for Matt, he rarely experiences anxiety, but for Jake it’s making his gorgeous daughters’ school lunch!

    Matt D’Lando brings a great point to the table. Should college athletes get paid? They’re making the school and the NCAA millions of dollars, should the student receive a cut? Some students don’t get a full scholarship for sports and still have to pay tuition, books, food, and housing. How can they manage a job, school, and a sport? If they get paid, how much should they receive?

    Our content writer PJ, gives us the headlines. Recently the Boy Scouts announced they are will allow girls to join! Is this a good thing? Should they remain separate? They will now be called Cub Scouts and not everyone is happy about this. Tell us how you feel about it in the comments!

    What gives you anxiety and how do you overcome it?
    Should college athletes get paid?
    Do you like the idea of Boy Scouts allowing girls to join?

    The Jake Carney Show Ep 8: Kids on Leashes, AOL Shutting Down, and Fruit or Veggie

    The Jake Carney Show Ep 8: Kids on Leashes, AOL Shutting Down, and Fruit or Veggie

    On today’s podcast, we discuss Kids on Leashes, AOL Shutting Down, and Fruit or Veggie.

    Jake and special guest Matt D’Lando talk about being a bad parent. Are you a bad parent if you put your kid on a leash? I mean.. its not really a leash, it’s just a monkey backpack with a long tail.. right? What if you kid won’t stop running around, the leash could come in handy. Does the kids behavior reflect the parents? And what about cell phones? If the parents give their 5 year old a cell phone, are they bad parents? Should kids have cell phones and what age is it appropriate to give them one?

    And you heard it here first, AOL is shutting down after 15+ years! Last week we shared our wacky AIM screen names. Do you remember yours? QUICK QUESTION: When you entered a chat what’s the first question you asked? (Hint: A/S/L) Can you guess what is it?

    Then we hear from our content writer/ weekend fisherman, PJ. He believes it is absolutely cruel to put fish in fish tanks. Think about it, the poor animals are swimming around in circles for the first of their lives. How do you feel about fish tanks? Do you think it’s animal cruelty?

    Lastly, we Matt begins his new (but short lived) segment Fruit or Veggie. He was shocked to learn that some of his favorite “vegetables” are actually fruits! How can you tell the difference between a fruit and a veggie? You think it’s easy? What is avocado, a fruit or a vegetable?

    Is it okay to put children on leashes?
    Do you remember your old AIM screen name?
    Do you know the difference between a fruit and a vegetable?

    The Jake Carney Show Ep 7: Marijuana & Hangovers, Poop Habits, and Job Policies

    The Jake Carney Show Ep 7: Marijuana & Hangovers, Poop Habits, and Job Policies

    On today’s podcast, we discuss Marijuana & Hangovers, Poop Habits, and Job Policies (unlimited vacations).

    Jake and special guest Matt D’Lando talk about the perfect cure to hangovers. Is it true marijuana is the perfect remedy to recovering from a long night out? IV bags are said to be the boost you need after a last nights multiple rounds of shots. Is it better than drinking water? Should IV bags be more accessible to everyone suffering from a hangover?

    Then Jake squeezes the poop.. I mean, the truth out of Matt, and the guys share their poop habits. Isn’t it normal to bring your phone to the bathroom? What about your laptop? Where do we draw the line for bathroom entertainment? Our guess is, 99.9% of the country brings their phone to accompany them when it’s time to let one go. (This is not a proven fact, but highly believable).

    Our content writer PJ missed all of the fun, but we still talk headlines. Football player Cam Newton receives heavy backlash after chuckling when a women reporter asks about football routes. Was this sexist? Can women be taken serious while talking sports. Should Cam loose his job, get suspended, or at least apologize? Or is the public being too sensitive?

    Lastly, we get into a job policies. Here at The Alternative Daily we are grateful to receive unlimited vacations. Should all jobs be required to give their employees unlimited vacations? Do you think people would work harder if there was for freedom? Or should people stick to the traditional work 4 hours, take an hour lunch, then work another 4? What about multiple cigarette breaks? Should they be included as part of your hour lunch break?

    Is marijuana the perfect hangover cure?
    What entertains you while you’re pooping?
Was Cam Newtons remark sexist?
    Should all companies give their employees unlimited vacations?

    Jake and special guest Matt D’Lando get into human rights. Is it a basic human right to be provided with clean water and air?

This woman, like many pregnant woman, had a nude-ish photoshoot in a lake with her fiancé revealing her stomach and boobs. She was then allegedly fired from her job, leaving her with no money and no health insurance. Is the company right to release an employee over pregnancy photos? Was she wrong for posting them online? Should she fight for her job back?

Fantastic

This has quickly become my favorite podcast. When I listen, it feels like I'm hanging out with friends. Informative, engaging and funny.

Selena Hope ,

Super Informative

I love the way how they simply reveal the truth about true health and optimal physical performance, through practical measures of lifestyle changes. Very informative podcast that presents information in a comedic and realistic/understandable light. Also psyched that I was chosen to receive a free berkey water filter, just from listening to the podcast and responding in an email.
