Last night, I got my Internet broadcasting year on Vigilant Liberty Radio off to a great start by welcoming my good friend, blogger with United Liberty and FreedomWorks, and indomitable libertarian Michelle Ray (@GaltsGirl) back to the program!
We had a fantastic hour-plus discussion that touched on everything from federal regulations, to the new Federal Reserve chair woman, to “millennial Marxists”, to two eerily prescient works of fiction by Daniel Suarez – Daemon and Freedom™- that seem to be coming to pass more and more with each day.
It was only right that I had Michelle on as my first guest of the new year as she’s to be largely credited (blamed? LOL) for setting me on this path from the day she had me as a guest on the old “Mitchell & Ray” CDN program nearly two years ago.
Finally, at the program’s close, I made an announcement about a commemorative project I’m leading for the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the invasion of France by the Americans, British, and Canadians that is upcoming this June 6, 2014. I’ve already assembled a great crew of bloggers and broadcasters from across the Internet to assist in this project and if we pull it off, it will be a lasting tribute that will hopefully outlive us all.
We’re going to try and retell the events of June 6, 1944 in the style of a 1940s radio show that will be broadcast on VLR for the 70th anniversary in honor of all the brave men who fought that day and those after in the liberation of Europe. The program will have a modern twist though as we’ll tell the events from the perspective of “embedded reporters” with the Allied armies as they went ashore. Stay tuned for periodic updates on the project, and if you’re interested in volunteering your talents to it – we have need for writers, editors, voices, post-production, etc. – please let me know via a comment below, a tweet, or an email!
Give the program a listen, or click the “Spreaker” link in the player to be taken to the location for offline file download! Oh, and don’t forget to tune back into VLR tonight (1/7) at 10E/9C/8M/7P for the second edition of the LIVE Roundtable of Extreme Liberty! Taylor Millard (@EyeDesertBlog) and I will have a panel of three incredible women – Becca Lower (@BeccaJLower) of Own The Narrative, Christine Rousselle (@crousselle) of Townhall.com, and “Miss” Ruth Vine (@MissRuth1021) of Misfit Politics – for more talk on “millennial Marxism”, Senator Rand Paul vs. the NSA, and the whole idiocy of “PIV=rape”.
