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 Ep. 47: Statues of Limitations


NEW ORLEANS (JSC) —  What’s up everybody. The push to Episode 50 continues after a brief hiatus. First and foremost, my apologies for being gone the last few weeks. I was down in New Orleans for the National Association of Black Journalists Convention — it was an amazing success BTW — but after three weeks, the People’s Podcast is back in business and just in time for more of the fresh hell that has engulfed this country.

Episode 47 talks about the terrible incident in Charlottesville, and the fallout from it that includes the perversion of “Free Speech” and this country’s continued clutching onto the Confederacy — you know, the LOSING side in the Civil War. The latter being a subject that is sadly familiar to this site.

PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  Hey Now! What’s good, People! The People’s Podcast is back this week after my sinuses and allergies robbed me of my voice. It’s time for another milestone.

Updates: JSC’s New Look, JSC Radio Season 2, Episode 38, and Moving Forward!


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  What’s Up y’all! So, ummm, if you’ve noticed, a few things have changed around here at the good ol’ Mothership. The #JSCBlog has become JayScottSmith.com, for starters. It’s been years in the making getting this blog to become an actual site and over the course of the next few weeks, you’re going to see all of the changes. JSC Radio has become much more of a THING since I last posted here back in September. The People’s Podcast still doesn’t have a set genre, which is by design. I’ve taken to calling it a lifestyle podcast. It’s a podcast that uses sports as a backdrop for everyday life. In the Last few months, the show has expanded from SoundcloudiTunes and Stitcher Radio to adding Google Play to the network! Also, as you’ve seen on the JSC Radio page, we’re now up to 38 full episodes, with the most recent dropping last night. Going forward, expect there to be an update every week when a new show drops — usually, but not always — every Thursday. The show is also on Twitter at @JSCRadio!

Head over to the JSC Radio page to catch up on Episodes 18-37 including where I interviewed a rising star at ESPN, talked to a dynamic young woman who is changing the way we look at Feminism, managed to apologize — then un-apologized — to the Detroit Lions, talked about Ric Flair’s greatest hour, and we passed a milestone one-year anniversary that also talked about WrestleMania and so much more. There’s also the detail of This Week’s show, where I get serious about mental health, Steve Stephens, and Aaron Hernandez.
