Show #3 (2-25-2016)

Patriot PubShow #3 of Patriot Pub (Thursday, February 25th) featured host Matt Fitzgibbons and co-host Toni Slate.

Toni Slate: Talent Scout

Topic: Privacy in the Digital Age.
What a great show! Toni and I started with status updates. I  announced my recent Honorable Mention in the Song Door 2015 International Songwriting Contest for my soon-to-be-released song “Eye of the Hurricane” and I  let everyone know about my upcoming interview on WarriorTalkRadio on 3/15/2016.

I gave a synopsis of the DoJ’s recent court order to Apple Corporation demanding they write software to enable them access to the San Bernadino shooter’s phone and offered my view from a Constitutional perspective. Within a few minutes we got our first caller. By the end of the first half, we had 3 callers, which makes a total of 5 people (including Toni and I) simultaneously.

The conversation was so good, there was only time to play one song:

The show met the goals of Patriot Pub perfectly. It really felt like 5 people sitting around a table in a warm and comfortable environment, drinking and waxing philosophically. As usual, we veered from the stated topic more than once, but we got back on track and offered our opinions of whether privacy will even be possible in the near future.
