Whad’ya Know for The Year of the Pig

February 4, 2019

Hear Ye, Hear Ye:  The State of the Feldman

 

Ms Speaker, the rest of you.

Wasn’t 2018 a great year? And the President says they will keep getting greater for the foreseeable future, or 2 years, whichever comes first.

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–

 

February 9           Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune cinematiste & man about town will (hopefully) tell us why The Favourite is a musical comedy, or at least what’s with the rub my leg & pass me a bunny thing–

February 16         Car Guy Tom Appel, who spends every morning cruising Chicago looking for classic if not in the good sense cars, will ostensibly tell us what’s burning rubber on the floor at the Chicago Auto Show–

March 9                In “Never Home Alone,”  biologist Rob Dunn, guides us through the more than 200,000 species living in our house, including some hot microbes who commute between home and sea floor vents–

March 16              A team of trolls working from Savushkina St, St. Petersburg, slipped Rob Sears enough material to piece together “Vladimir Putin: Life Coach,” ‘tips from the world’s most powerful man which will allow you to take control of your life and the lives of those around you’–

March 23             Helen Schulman’s not-so-fictional multiverse in “Come With Me” is built around an algorithm that allows people to play ‘sliding-door’ with virtual reality scenarios from their pasts–

March 30              —–no show—–

April, May & June: TBA  (hey, I gotta do it all!)

Time for a Vacation? Whad’ya Know!

July 2, 2018

Is this a cry for a vacation or what? For medication, you say? Intervention?

Hi, I’m Michael Feldman (r) host of All Things Whad’ya Know, and I want to thank you for making the Spring Season of Whad’ya Know ’18 a resounding success–Lyle Anderson (lured down from his ivory Bell Tower) and I talked with a man from Venus, a woman who picked the Final Four using math modeling, learned about the Food Explorer who brought us avocados and, unfortunately, kale, found out how to Hack Your Mind and become a billionaire and where to spot a Harpy Eagle with the wingspan of a B-52, not to mention a mint 370 cu in Trans Am like the one in Smokey & The Bandit just sitting in a parking ramp in Highland Park, AND how Lyle fared on the Trump Cognition Test–and much not much more!

Obviously, given this frantic pace, one needs a break–Lyle, to his bell tower with the beautiful Esmeralda, me & the fambly  to San Jose CA to see the pair o’ docs Feldman et all, then back to scrape and paint the asbestos shingles of A House of A Guy’s Own–that’s not gonna happen–OK, to sit around and scratch with Bella, more likely.

The Good News is the Whad’ya Know Podcast will continue to post over the summer with some things new, some things blue, somethings borrowed and some things however that goes–so look for us on the Whad’ya Know Podcast page and and on iTunes, Stitcher, CastBox (for you android types) and SoundCloud.com—

Then, before you know it, or September 8 (whichever comes first), Lyle (minus Esmeralda) and I, your humble servant Michael, will be back pushing the envelope from the inside and out with our Facebook Live! podcasts you can see (!) on  www.facebook.com/whadyaknow.net/ .

Thanks, All Ya’all!! Talk to you soon, if not sooner,

Michael

June is Bustin’ Out All Over on Whad’ya Know Podcast!

 

June 9–National Geographic’s Daniel Stone spins the amazing yarn of  “The Food Explorer,” David Fairchild, who, in the 1880’s, brought Americans kale from Croatia, lemons from Corsica, Avocados from Chile, nectarines from Afghanistan and Mangoes from Vietnam, giving Americans something to eat beside mutton, beans and taters–and changing the course of history!

 

June 16–“Our Towns,” a 100,000 mile odyssey across American to re-discover small town American life in this complicated age, undertaken by James and Deborah Fallows who, traveling  over 5 yrs together in a single prop plane, are not only still married, but have recorded some amazing and reassuring stories of American life.

 

 

 

 

 

And, on June 23, Manuel Pastor’s “State of Resistance,” the story of California’s rise, fall and resurgence, makes a case for the California experience as a model for America’s future as a compassionate, inclusive and a progressive force in the world.
