As we all know, I’m completely biased but I have to tell you -- I thought today’s show was incredible! We started the whole thing with a debate between Andy and CNN’s Ali Velshi. They had such an informative and entertaining conversation, you can watch that here. They talk about all the aspects of the sequester as well as Ali’s comments made on how governments run. He closes the hour with wall to wall comments from callers.
Justin ‘Lean Left’ Leto came on for an update on the Trayvon Martin case. Can you believe it’s already been a year?! Also, the NYC cannibal cop’s trial has started and his wife had some pretty shocking testimony. Andy and Justin couldn’t really decide if what he did was crime or not because there was no action, just a lot of conversations about sick fantasies. After that, Stephanie Duchaine joined Andy for the tech report. She gave her perspective as a former Google employee on the new rule at Yahoo banning telecommuting and working from home. She also reported on the number of active users on Instagram leading what Facebook and Twitter ever had at the same point in their rise to the top of the social media game. Finally, Will Richard reported a billionaire’s search for a couple to travel to Mars in 2018. It wouldn’t involve actual planet exploration but rather an orbit. Sounds fun!
To round out the show and start the last hour of the show, I joined Andy in studio for Bizarre News. I love it when we get a full segment – the stories get a full telling and that is always fun. We discussed the survival story of a guy who was shot 15 times after trying to quit his gang and Intern Caroline came on the air (for the first time ever) to introduce herself and give the records of most shot survivors – she was adorable and SO NERVOUS! Cute. Andy closed the show with your calls.
