JSC Radio Ep. 67: Parkland


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  So, it happened. Again. But are we really shocked? On Valentine’s Day, less than six months after the horrific massacre in Las Vegas, the third worst school shooting in American history — and the third major US school shooting of the decade — occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. There were 17 deaths, a majority of them being kids. It exceeded the horrid death toll at Columbine High School in 1999, but fell short of the massacres at Virginia Tech and Sandy Hook. That there is even a ranking is galling.

This is the third episode that will address a horrific mass shooting — Episode 11 was the first. Episode 52 was the second. This one, however, is infuriating for a different reason. Unlike Las Vegas, which was a gross display of abuse of this country’s insane ability to stockpile guns, or Orlando — which was used by conservatives as an excuse to target Muslim Americans rather than address guns, this shooting was a combination of our worst fears: lax gun laws, incompetent law enforcement, incompetent leadership on all levels, and the disgusting world that is 2018’s American social media.

A 19-year-old dude with a history of violent, racist behavior was able to walk into a school with an AR-15 and slaughter a baseball team’s worth of kids. There was armed security there — and it turns out they actually ran and hid while the shooting occurred — Plus, in what has become sadly typical, a number of scumbags are accusing the surving kids of being “crisis actors” and claiming that they are being “paid” to protest. WTF, dude!?

This week is a monologue on Parkland, gun control, the corrupt union that is the NRA and the GOP, and when will this country take finally take responsibility for what it has wrought with its strident love of firearms — and whether that will happen with this clownish president at the helm.

JSC Radio Ep. 65: Flipping The Birds


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — This was a hell of a week to be in Philadelphia.

What up doe, People! This has been a hell of a cool week here in Philly to be honest. This week’s episode — another landmark at No. 65 — hits on the aftermath of the orgasm of happiness that was the Philadelphia Eagles winning the Super Bowl.

As I’ve said multiple times the last few weeks, Philadelphia is a different kind of place when it comes to their sports teams — particularly the Eagles. The Eagles are to Philly what the Red Sox are in Boston, the Cubs are in Chicago, the Saints are in New Orleans, and…yes…the Lions are in Detroit.

This No. 9 found a way to take command and win big games for the Eagles.

The Eagles last won an NFL Championship in 1960, predating the Super Bowl by seven calendar years. They wouldn’t reach their first Super Bowl until after the 1980 season, where they got laid out by the Raiders. It would be almost 25 years before they got back to the Super Bowl, where they lost to the Patriots in Jacksonville. The Lombardi Trophy, much like it is in Detroit, was an obsession in Philly. It was the holy grail. It was the Precious. Well, last Sunday, the Eagles obtained the Precious. And they did it in a way that few would’ve ever figured, especially after Carson Wentz’s knee went kaboom on Dec. 10 in Los Angeles, with lightly regarded journeyman Nick Foles out there throwing flames like he grabbed a Fire Flower and a pissed off defense. This week’s show talks about the Eagles influence on the city, the wild celebrations/riots that soon followed, the epic parade featuring one of the greatest promos every by Jason Kelce, and why these Eagles have all the things the Lions wish they had.

Plus, the NBA trade deadline basically turned into the Great Cleveland Massacre. 

Here’s Episode 65. Let’s Have Some Fun, y’all.

JSC Radio Ep. 52: Las Vegas


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  So, it happened again. But, deep in your heart, you knew it would, right? On Monday morning, many of us woke up to our news alerts having gone crazy overnight (or, in my case, in real time) of the horrific massacre in Las Vegas. 

This isn’t even the first episode that will address a horrific mass shooting — Episode 11 was the first. This one, however, is infuriating  for a different reason. A man was able to stockpile weapons, kill more people than died on one of the hijacked flights on Sept. 11, 2001, rack up a number of casualties that rivals that of the Oklahoma City bombing, and then kill himself before facing consequences. Yet, this still doesn’t seem to be enough to force any sort of change.

This week, a monologue on Las Vegas, gun control, and when will this country take responsibility for what it has wrought with its strident love of firearms.

JSC Radio Extra: A few minutes on R. Kelly and how we treat Black Women…


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  What’s up, Y’all. I know. It’s not Thursday or Friday. This ain’t #JSCWOW. Instead, I’m here to highlight a particular point I made in last week’s episode of JSC Radio. For those of you who have listened: THANK YOU. For those who haven’t, get your ass onto SoundcloudiTunesStitcher Radio, or Google Play and subscribe now.

During last week’s episode, which was the 45th, I dug into the archives and played part the audio from the Feel The Hunger Radio episode DJ Cutt-Nice and I did the day R. Kelly was acquitted in 2008. At 28 years old, I was more incredulous at how it happened. At 37 years old, I’m livid that it’s continued on and that boiled to the surface after I played the cut from 2008. Today, I’ll give you the transcript of what I said. Continue reading JSC Radio Extra: A few minutes on R. Kelly and how we treat Black Women…

JSC Radio Ep. 45: Cult of Personality


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  What’s up everybody. After a couple of weeks off for a well earned vacation, the People’s Podcast is back and so is the rage. We rediscovered that R. Kelly is a garbage human, and Michael Vick is still not very bright. For the 45th Episode of JSC Radio, I got off on Kelly and Vick, plus I dig into the archives for some goodness from…Feel The Hunger Radio.
