Episode 15 of the Schnauzer Logic Podcast is Online!!!

Sonovista, my friends! Episode 15 of the Schnauzer Logic Podcast is online and the only word you need to remember is: TrainWreck! (smile)... ok, not exactly a train wreck, but after 3 great weeks in a row, it was inevitable that we'd hit a bump, just to remind us that we're only demigods... and just to be clear, our guests, Jason Nathanson and Robin Goldstein (the smarter) were great... the glitches came mostly from your humble hostess, me (the giggler)... but we're already reviewing the game films, looking for holes in the offense and defense, and we'll be back again, next week, with another award winning show featuring an episode of Win John DeKoven's Money, and all of us giving 110%... meanwhile, we come not to bury Episode 15 (The Ides of Schnauzer), but to praise it...

We opened with a goofy discussion about a goofy kids show from 1968, The Banana Splits Adventure Hour, which marked an early directorial effort by later day Omen/Superman/Lethal Weapon helmer, Richard Donner. We also talked about other early kids shows, including the strange/non-existant animation of Clutch Cargo and Space Angel (Synchro-Vox rules!), Soupy Sales, and Brazilian star Xuxa.

We then took a break and returned with this week's update from our good friend, Jason Nathanson, who's taking a journey across America, and chronicling his adventures on our show, and his blog at (btw, jason's theme song is by the group Rockapella) Oh, and if you want to hear Jason's interview from this morning (5/11) on KSCO, you can click ::here::

After our next break we came back with a short discussion on confidence and dating and then got directly into this week's plumbing update (well, not directly... Parviz wanted to listen to more of Ann Zimmerman's wonderful song first, but I think he was just stalling)... btw, we're trying to get a spokesman from the United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry of the United States and Canada.

We then took another break, played Episode 4 of Bryan Cox's Stand Up Comedy Road Stories, and planned to come back talking with travel writer Robin Goldstein from his hotel room in Hong Kong.

that didn't happen...

1010-229 was down (even though i had tested it to the same number at the same time the day before), so we were forced into 'improv' mode...

(i hear the train a'comin...)

and i won't say any more about that effort except to say it was mercifully short (though perhaps not short enough) and it once again showed what a genius Phil Hendrie is!

However, after a quick poll, we decided to bite the bullet and pay "full fare" and we called Robin Goldstein, directly, at his hotel room in Hong Kong, where he's reviewing restaurants and hotels for Fodors before heading back to the US to celebrate the publication of his own Austin Texas restaurant review guide for Off The Map Press. I've known (of) Robin for over 10 years and though we've never spoken, he sounded totally cool and funny and interesting and I think I could kill him (maybe dump his body in a irrigation pipe, like i described to Jason) and take over his life and NOBODY would know the DIFFERENCE... or not... anyway, we're gonna have Robin back again, since he seems to be doing a much better job of being Robin Goldstein than I have!

And with that we wrapped it all up in a nice package, with a pink bow, and started into the tequila...

So, because of the technical problems, the segments were longer than usual (we know... 18 minute segments are boring!), and we only got to 3 songs, but they were terrific and can be found on

1. Simple Minded Fools from Hong Kong - "Left To Run"
2. Los Pistoleros from Orange, California - "Road Trip"
3. Thinking Out Loud from Hong Kong - "People"

And now you know what you didn't know when you didn't know what you knew... Next week John DeKoven, Jason Nathanson, Bryan Cox, maybe more Robin Goldstein... Sunday, remember Mother's Day (here in the US)... and as always:

Show Up
Pay Attention
Tell The Truth
And Don't Be Attached To The Outcome!
