Tom Papa called in for a fun chat about his new book Your Dad Stole My Rake…and Other Family Dilemmas. We discussed why he wanted to put down his thoughts into convenient book form, writing for a specific audience, dealing with “wacky” morning radio shows, and the eternal dilemma of juggling work and family.Follow @bigwakeupcall
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews called in to talk about his new book Bobby Kennedy: A Raging Spirit. We discussed his personal memory of Kennedy’s assassination, how America would be different with Kennedy instead of Nixon, and why he likes to be nearly camera-ready even for radio appearances.
Bill McCormick from the World News Center called in for his weekly visit and this time we chatted about hacking a fish tank, Alexa stealing your identity, changing the password on your nanny cam, and the unexpected advantages of a late ’90s garage door opener. Plus: mutant superpowers and a public service announcement.Follow @bigwakeupcall
