Listen to Cognitive Dissonance!

Tune into 93.5 KOCA tonight, 10PM-1 AM MST and keep your dial locked for fab music + Legit Conservative + d-bag o’ the week.

We have very super-duper guests for you tonight — all the way from Colorado, it’s synth-pop comedic trio Ultra Sex Laser! I met these folks at an open mic and they bring the lulz like you wouldn’t believe. At least, not until you hear them. They’re gonna play you some songs about punching pandas and shit, and we’ll chat.

Plus, Hawkeye Jefferson is bringing the HAWKAMANIA.

Ooh, and we’ll call out some of our own homegrown crazy. I’ll give you a hint: “NO MORE WIRE HANGERS!” Well, I guess that’s not much of a hint. So tune in! Why? Because tonight’s show is gonna rock your socks!

Don’t forget to send The Legitimate Conservative some questions!

Listen online and talk to us in the live chat! Check out http://myradiostream.com/cognitivedissonance to listen at 10 PM and http://chat.myradiostream.com/FSHs11p6864/ for the chat!

Taking your requests for songs, dedications & d-bag nods til 9 PM MST.

Cheers,

Meg

Brand new radio show!

Economist Anne Alexander dropped by the show to discuss just what the hell QE3 is, and how we got here. Meg went on an epic First Amendment rant within the first 30 minutes of the show. Why? Because the University of Wyoming has learned nothing from history, or the principles of freedom of expression in the face of controversy.

Legit Conservative and Meg solve the financial crisis and debate whether or not Vladimir Putin should be allowed to just go full out Bond villain. Let’s just say this: Do you believe in miracles?

D-bags included Rep. Todd Akin, Sen. Scott Brown, and Ann Coulter. The one d-bag to rule them all = the people who are so lazy in their bigotry that they lynch chairs. 

The show was awesomesauce! All content remains copyright original creators.

Listen and chat live next week here.

My friend Elena is joining me to discuss this story about a professor at American University breastfeeding in class. Here’s background on the story. Washington Post has one reaction from a commentator after the prof attempted to stop the college paper from asking questions, but then revealed her name and the events in an essay for CounterPunch.

I asked Elena to come talk about this because she has three children, and has confronted similar dilemmas in the past. We’re going to hash it out, and I encourage folks to join us on the live chat!
