Oy Vey! Not again!!!

We apologize for the delay in publishing this podcast.

Our co host and producer, Foster Braun, is also our podcast editor.  Shortly after the show ended on Saturday, he was taken to the ER for severe pain and wasn’t discharged until Monday afternoon.  Good news: no fractures! Pain persists but is better controlled.  The full podcast is being edited and will be posted, God willing, by Tuesday, Aug. 30.  Thank for your patience.

Listen to this week's full two hour podcast. Only the first hour was heard live from 3-4 PM on WJR 760-AM
