Commander in Cheat–This Saturday, June 1 on Whad’ya Know Podcast

May 28, 2019

Donald Trump loves golf. He loves to play it, buy it, build it, and operate it.

He also claims he’s a 3 handicap, never loses, and has won an astonishing 18 club championships.*

How much of that is true?

None says acclaimed sportswriter Rick Reilly in Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump

Hark, a novel of Mental Archery, by Sam Lipsyte 5-11-19 on Whad’ya Know Podcast

May 7, 2019

So, Mental Archery, in Sam Lipsyte’s novel Hark, is the mindful yet un- approach of bow hunting your goals espoused by self-effacing guru Hark Morner in post-post apocalyptic America, i.e, here & now.

Hear Ye, Hear Ye:  The State of the Feldman

 

Ms Speaker, the rest of you.

The Whad’ya Know beat went on, miss you Sonny, in 2018, as it did in 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, ellipse, ellipse, ellipse, and so on. So forth would be overdoing it.

2019 is no exception, except for it being the Year of the Pig making me a little uneasy as you might expect, or it could be whatever this is right here which bothers me at night.

Without further adieu- Whad’ya Know for the Year of the Pig–
