Exhausted, all my tech is failing, including this podcast.  Oh, did I mention I'm losing my hearing and half-blind in one eye?  So, how's your year been going.  See also one of my earliest podcast episodes, "Some Old Guy Whining."

Show Theme "Hot Swing" from Kevin MacLeod of Incompetech.com.

Prince Martin Wins His Sword - the Promo!


I recently completed the Audible version of "Prince Martin Wins His Sword" for the author, Brandon Hale.  While recording this rhyming book, I noticed a particular piece of music fit the rhyme scheme perfectly.  And then I also noticed the promotional language on the book's page on Amazon also rhymed the same way.

And the rest is history... a promo was born!

Hiber-Nation 20180201 - Federalist # 14 - Objections to the Proposed Constitution From Extent of Territory Answered


Hello, welcome back for Federalist # 14, "Objections to the Proposed Constitution From Extent of Territory Answered."

You know, I do love reading these older works aloud for you. I like to think it adds a living energy to words to which you and I have paid far too little attention for far too long. I've mentioned that I don't read ahead very much, to keep the material fresh for me. I like suprises as much as you folks do. Much of the Federalist papers are rather calm, rather clerical, rather tame. The first part of this essay is much the same. But towards the end, there's quite a crescendo, lemme tell ya.

This one purports to be written by James Madison, though the Alexander Hamilton Awareness Society argues that most or all were written by Hamilton. That's possible. But it seems to me the more firey essays do seem to be attributed to Madison. So it's an intriguing question. And it's nice to find an intriguing question about something written 230 years ago. Hope I do it justice.

Good day!
