Good evening folks! The AudioVillains are back again with episode 21! Where’s episode 20 you ask? Well, like every show, there is a lost episode. For us, episode 20 is our lost episode. We had some technical difficulties and although it was a great show there was some static that ruined it. Either way though, we are back after a couple weeks off and we kicked ass! This week we talked about 80’s Kung-Fu movies, the paradox of time travel and Terminator 3, and finally we made some cracks at Mike Tyson. It’s something we would never do in person because we would get our asses handed to us but in the end it was all fun and games. As always you can email us at email@example.com or click the black button on the left. Cheers!

In the past I’ve written about my eldest son Richie. If you have read my previous posts then you know the story as to why I cannot say who I am to him. I will not go into detail but a couple weeks ago I was face-to-face with him. He looks like me and there is no way that anyone could say that he is not my son. From what I’ve heard he has my sense of humor and likes some of the same things I do. Some odd things have happened between us and it’s something I have to address. When he was either 9 or 10 he was Luigi for Halloween. When I was around that age I was Mario. When I was younger I was in scouts and he is in scouts now. It’s little things like that, that truly amaze me. We haven’t had that father-son relationship yet we are similar. There are more of the little things but I’ll save that for later. Below you’ll find a short podcast on my encounter with my eldest son Richie. If you’re out there mijo, I hope you listen to this. I love you…Post Views: 378

Welcome back to another episode of Within the Trenches, a podcast based on the experience of being a 9-1-1 dispatcher. Today is September 15th, 2016 and there are only 5 days left until the ability to submit a public comment closes. The #IAM911 movement has raised all kinds of awareness on the issue of reclassification for Public Safety Telecommunicators (PSTs) from “clerical” to “protective”, but most of all the awareness of what PSTs go through on a day to day basis. The support from the Thin Gold Line, the public, those on the road, industry partners and those in Office has been amazing!
With that said, episode 117 has a special guest. In this episode I spoke with a former Public Safety Telecommunicator and currently the U.S. Representative for California’s 35th District, Congresswoman Norma Torres. This was a lot of fun to record. She shared stories from her time in dispatch up to her current position in Congress. She recently sent a letter to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in reference to their decision to reject the reclassification proposal started by APCO International. It was an honor to have her on the podcast and below you will find a link to the letter she sent to the OMB, her social media and links to where you can provide information to APCO International and NENA for public comment.
We only have 5 days left so let’s push it! Continue to share your stories and go to the websites below and submit your public comment. As always if you have any questions or you would like to be a guest on the show send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

This morning I was on a run for coffee and doughnuts and I heard something interesting on my favorite morning radio show. What I heard was unbelievable and I thought I should write something about it and see what your thoughts are on it. Do you remember Percy from The Green Mile? If not he was the pissy, shitty little man who smashes the mouse and tells the guy that there is no mouse heaven. In the end he ends up murdering the pedophile and goes insane. A perfect ending for such a jerk of a character. Well it appears that he has a new role, in real life that is, as a husband. Congrats on the marriage but there is something odd about this. His blushing bride is rather young and when I say young, I mean statutory rape young. Doug Hutchison (Percy) married a 16 year old named Courtney Stodden. As you can see from the picture she doesn’t look like she’s 16 but she is in fact that age. In Las Vegas the legal marrying age is 18, however, with parental consent the age drops to 16.
So what do you think about this marriage? Do you think it’s real or fake? The couple insists that they are in love and her parents say that the 51 year old is wonderful but can there be more to this? I have heard that back in the day it was perfectly legal and normal for an older man to marry a teenager but eventually society deemed it out of the norm and taboo. What happened back then that made it cool and now it’s wrong? I know it sounds as though I might be behind this guy but I’m not. There is no amount of money that I would except to let my 16 year old daughter marry an older man. Had she been of age I don’t think it would matter at all and I wouldn’t be typing this post. Maybe I’m wrong though, maybe they are happily married but something just seems off. Maybe he’s the victim here and not her. He does seem rather punchy and they could all be taking him for what he has. I don’t know how true any of it could be but the couple believes that love is ageless so are they right? Let me know what you think people.Post Views: 746
