The Rabblecast

Earlier this month, the Electronic Frontier Foundation won a victory against Personal Audio(a patent holding company). This is a big news for podcaster's everywhere. The case involves Personal Audio’s broad patent for a “System for Disseminating Media Content Representing Episodes in a Serialized Sequence,” which the company used to levy suits against a number of podcast providers, including Adam Carolla, HowStuffWorks, CBS, and NBC.

We also get into a discussion about breast feeding and how sensitive some people can get about the subject. Should a woman be allowed to breast feed in public? Why is there such a big push against it?

We delve into some 80's animated movie nostalgia as we talk about Hasbro's Transformers: The Movie and GI Joe: The movie. Which characters were suppose to die in each story? Who was saved due to a re-write?

And finally, Doug gives us a rundown of his latest concert going experience.

Throughout the life of this show we have reported on numerous celebrity deaths. Musicians, Actors, Artists, Athletes, etc. Each passing touching people differently. Celebrity death hoaxes on the other hand tend to confuse, upset, and irritate. Families are affected, fans are outraged, and news outlets sometimes fail to check their sources. We take a closer look at some infamous death hoaxes and the stories behind them.

The conversation then drifts over to the realm of Politics. It has been stated before, this show really doesn't cover politics in general. But it has been creeping into the conversation more and more. "Politics has become the new spectator sport." And all of the world is watching. The question is, where do we go next?

 Doug breaks out his notes for another "Horrible Events in History". Have you ever heard of Nixon, New Jersey? Doug fills us in on this very interesting topic and just how close to home it is for us.

All of this and so much more!
