This is episode 22

I've just heard from Herrad, a fellow MSer friend of mine from Amsterdam.

She'd been going through a bad patch because she'd been coping as best she could with a neurologist who was a complete idiot.

She finally jettisoned him. (That wasn't very difficult, he never saw her as she kept getting worse and worse... [Some doctors should be selling shoes, not doctoring and neurologists are the worst of the lot. {The field seems to have attracted all the cowards, the people who don't want to deal with emergencies, or with blood or any of the other messy bodily fluids.}])

After a few aborted attempts we're going to try to put together another podcast.

(How else but for, with and through the internet would this even be possible.)

"Loss Of Feeling" by "Blind With Rain" here on WSPCs ThymeWarp.


We got PSAs:


Campus Safety urges students, faculty and staff to sign up for text alerts, online @

This will be used to inform students, faculty and staff in an emergency.

This was useful last year in the bomb scare.

To sign up, students must know their Spirit ID # (Bring their Saint Peter's College ID.)


There are still no prerecorded promos so I'm going to fake one right now.

How about if I tell you about "Dan and Dave on Sports in the Morning"

"Looking for quality sports talk?

Then look no further than Dan Drutz, our own assistant director of athletics, and David Freeman.

They’re here to give you all the latest news and discussion in both college and professional sports.

If you’re a sports fanatic, you won’t want to miss a second of what these two guys have to say.

So be sure to catch “Dan and Dave on Sports in the Morning.”

Every Tuesday from 11 to 12 noon. Only on WSPC: The Sound of Saint Peter’s College.

I just caught their show here in the studio and its "pretty darn good!".


There are still no prerecorded promos, well except for "moi."

bed: Oilsands by John Jack

Tuesdays at 5 at WSPC:

"Peak Oil" , what it is, what it means to us all (and believe me it does, if you thought that $4.00 a gallon gasoline was bad, (and don't let the election slump and sag fool you,) the price of oil will reveal just how incomodious a commodity it is.

I'll be featuring podsafe music so I can retransmit them on a full-blown podcast, with an RSS feed, on iTunes without having to pay my soul out to ASCAP/BMI.


The field of medicine seems to be a real strange mix of saints and sinners. Far more sinners than saints.

While the harrowing of heroes seems to be the common media interpretation, the sad fact is that these people believe their own press far too much.

In Israel they had a doctors strike that lasted two years, two full years, and during that time, the mortality rate went "down."

When the strike was finally settled, the death rate went right back up.

Tell me why do we need doctors?

For emergencies, right.

If we ate right, exercised and stopped doing foolish things, we could avoid most elective surgery and actually live longer, happier and healthier lives.
