BlogTalk Radio Tonight (update)
Posted by: McQ on Friday, March 09, 2007

Listen Live



We're going to try it again I think (if Dale remembers).

Our inaugural was "eh". We need to actually run it like a talk radio show which means one caller at a time and talk about the subject at hand, etc., etc.

That's not to say you're all not welcome ... you are. We'll make every attempt to get to every caller (or we'll just talk to each other if there are none). We're just hoping for a little more coherence in the broadcast that we have a better understanding of how it all works and have a better idea of how we want to conduct the show.

Two topics. 15 minutes for each. So be flexible if you're on hold for the first but we switch to the second, be ready to tapdance.

One of the topics will be the striking down of the DC gun ban by the DC Circuit. Another will be the Obey confrontation in the hallway as an indicator of how deeply divided the Democrats are on the Iraq issue.

Or it may be something completely different.

Heh ... fair warning.

So, if you're up and not too deeply in your cups, please do call. Hit the icon above for all the pertinent info and remember the broadcast time is 11pm EST.

UPDATE: Well apparently our audio still sucks. So Dale is running it through his system to clean it up and will upload it into the archive to where it at least can be listened too. Sorry for the problem folks, but thanks to Billy Beck, Michael Wade and Bryan Pick joining us tonight for a great discussion of the implications of the DC Court's decision to strike down the District of Columbia's gun ban.

The sound quality is awful this time. Very scratchy and quiet.

Yeah, I gave up listening because I just couldn’t make it out without hurting my ears from the scratchiness.

It was a nice discussion too. I think that with all the extra callers, this format is best suited to discussing one issue thoroughly—very different from our usual podcast because of all the extra input/perspectives. Once we have a clean copy, I encourage everyone who missed it the first time to check it out.

I didn’t want to bring it up late in the podcast since I was enjoying all the other guys more, but I’ve read that the NRA originally tried to block this suit, likely because of the risk it posed of going the other way. Tried to say it shortly after I was put on hold the first time, but the line had already been transferred back to Billy.

I do recall (and meant to bring up) that there was some internecine battle going between the NRA and, I believe, the Institute for Justice about who was going to spearhead the legal challenges. IIRC, the NRA was worried about the District Court for D.C. ruling unfavorably and therefore setting back the national battle. As it turned out (suprisingly to me), the D.C. court got it right.

I alluded to this general line of thought, with reference to "someone" who I’d thought had been linked from Glenn Reynolds. I was wrong, and I’ve tracked it down:
"I have no doubt that this is going to the US Supreme Court. This is actually a very high risk gamble. IF the gun ban is struck down, it will have major implications. If not, no gun regulation will be deemed ’unreasonable’."
John Lott, linked by Say Uncle.

I imagine the fight for public opinion will be something to see as this thing proceeds.

I listened to the first one but was traveling last night and couldn’t listen... Hopefully the sound issues will clear up.

Are you guys going to expand it beyond 30 minutes? I had considered calling in for the first one, but it’s just such a short amount of time. If you’re getting enough calls to justify extending it to an hour, maybe do 30 minutes per topic?

We may, Brad. As it is we can talk pretty much for about as long as we want, but since it is an announced 30 minute show, we thought we’d try to keep within that time frame so those who are looking for a 30 minute show might be attracted. We’re also interested in experimenting with that amount of time as well. Doing a call in show is a lot different than doing a podcast, or at least it is to me. So we’re planning and trying a little different stuff. Dale has past experience with the format. I, however, am learning as we go.

One difference is, in a podcast, I’m more participant than host. In a call in show, there’s some need to be more host than participant. Balancing that is where the steep learning curve comes in.
