Sioux Empire Podcast 096 The New Colossus with Polly Dean

This podcast contains adult content, listener discretion advised.

This week The Sioux Empire Podcast Crew (Robert Mehling, Natasha Estes, and Seth Glover) get serious to talk about human trafficking with Polly Dean from The New Colossus.  But First, they talk about Russian Gun Advocates, arbitrary, meaningless lists,  and all of those bald glowing children in Brandon.  This episode is brought to you by Sioux Falls Sno Jam Comedy Festival celebrating comedy and…Snow! That’s right there is no other comedy festival like it. Thirty comedians from around the country will be traveling to Sioux Falls, SD to perform in various venues across the city. Over the course of three days they will perform in both stand up and themed showcases, not only testing their comedy wits but their endurance to the cold. All the while supporting a good cause. Net proceeds will benefit the Special Olympics of South Dakota.  Don’t look into it but The Sioux Empire Podcast is the #1 podcast in the entire universe according to absolutelynotamadeuplistwebsiteseriously.fakeweb.

State Sen. and Watertown village idiot Neal Tapio disrupted an interfaith prayer by religious leaders in the capitol rotunda on the state legislatures’ second day in session.  The faith leaders prayed for tolerance and religious acceptance.  Can’t imagine why they would think those ideas are under threat…

Centurylink Tower in Downtown Sioux Falls voted South Dakota’s ugliest building.  The 11-story, 174-foot tall structure is also the tallest building in South Dakota.

The Federal Government is shut down which I think is hilarious other than the fact that it hurts a lot for regular working people not involved in congress’s pissing match.  In particular, the troops who won’t be paid for their time until after the shutdown ends.

And Finally, Your humble host has become embroiled in a legislative hullabaloo over the first amendment.

Sioux Empire Podcast 093 The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon and Unknown

This podcast contains adult content, listener discretion advised.

Skyler Bolks returns to help Seth’s Book Club unpack the steaming pile that is The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King.  It won’t take you long to realize how much he hated this book.  From what I can tell from Seth’s summary it is a book about a girl who gets lost in the woods with a softball player and there are piles of feces everywhere, and because it’s Stephen King, I assume there is a monster or ghost or monster ghost involved.  The review ends up being mostly an analysis of if Kangaroos read books.  The gang also digs into a new segment for 2018 Weird News!  This episode is brought to you by Sioux Falls Sno Jam Comedy Festival celebrating comedy and…Snow! That’s right there is no other comedy festival like it. Thirty comedians from around the country will be traveling to Sioux Falls, SD to perform in various venues across the city. Over the course of three days they will perform in both stand up and themed showcases, not only testing their comedy wits but their endurance to the cold. All the while supporting a good cause. Net proceeds will benefit the Special Olympics of South Dakota.  The Sioux Empire Podcast will always be star struck by Scott Hoy.

“the backstory is that house was an old School House in homestead days and Grandpa Maury moved it in and renovated it. Now there was a bad blizzard known as the children’s blizzard some kids passed away in school buildings and walking home. My Aunt and Uncles say there has never been paranormal activity they say that they are not sure if children actually perished in the building itself but they do know the teacher was burning desks and sidewalls in the wood stove to keep warm. There is a grave site and marker on I believe .. (Nearby) …  memorializing the children of the storm.” – Sarah Moriarty
